How to Make Each Day a Success
I think when an advisor is young or new in the business, he or she is always looking for the silver bullet, the magic bullet – the escalator instead of the stairway to success. I want to tell you a great story about the secret to success.
Watch the video or read the transcript below to learn this story about the secret to success.
It’s a story of an idiosyncratic business guy who paid people for their ideas. He gave them money on the spot if he liked their idea.
One day as he was having lunch in a restaurant, a young entrepreneur walked up to him and said, “The secret to success is written on this piece of paper I’ve got in my hands. I’ll sell it to you for $25,000.”
The mogul said, “You know, I’ll tell you what, I’ll make a deal. You let me read it. If I like what I see, I’ll give you $25,000.”
The young man agreed and handed the business man the paper. The man read it, put it down, and wrote a check for $25,000.
Do you know what the secret to success was?
There two points on that piece of paper:
- Every morning, write a list of tasks that need to be accomplished that day.
- Do them.
It’s just a great story. I got that from a blog site I recommend, called Make the Most of Life.
