“Prefer the advice of one who has successfully done that
which you are attempting to do.”
– Alex Newman

Motivational speaker, Brian Tracy, was spot on when he wrote, “No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively, have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals.”

One of the famous and influential billionaires in the world is the Virgin founder, Richard Branson, who has written more than a dozen books about success. But his formula is pretty simple: Start now. His advice for the aspiring businesspeople is to start whenever they can despite being a “virgin” in the business field.

Most people hold off their plans for the fear of failure, but Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft Corporation says that success doesn’t come right away. Before he became one of the richest people in the world, he had to experience failing in his first company Traf-O-Data. But instead of throwing away his dreams, he and his partner Paull Allen kept on going and eventually developed the largest personal computer software company in the world.

Having the passion is equally important, according to the co-founder of Google, Larry Page. What started as a research project at Stanford University is now the world’s most popular search engine. In an interview, he says, “If we were motivated by money, we could have sold the company a long time ago and ended up on a beach.”

Experience is the best teacher, but as another saying goes, “Wise men learn by other men’s mistakes, fools by their own.”
