Success In 8 Words - Video

by Yvonne Russell on August 6th, 2008

Here’s an interesting and entertaining video (3 minutes) from Richard St. John answering the question “What Leads To Success?”
It’s from the TED Conference. TED = Technology, Entertainment, Design.

1. Love what you do
2. Fun - Have fun
3. Be good or get good at something
4. Focus
5. Push yourself
6. Serve others something of value
7. Ideas
8. Persist

Richard St John says

In conclusion, the true road to success is to first look at yourself, see what you like and what you’re passionate about. Is it arts, sports, business, science? It can be anything. After you found what it is you’re passionate about, you need to direct that passion towards a goal.

For instance, if you’re passionate about arts, then you need to decide how that passion will best be expressed and whether it’s becoming art instructor or a world famous painter you need to work hard, focus, push through and persist in order to get damn good at it so you can then achieve your goal..

What is your definition of success?
