If you’ve been in business for any length of time, I’m sure you’ve seen your share of advice on how to have success in Network Marketing or with any other type of business.
Some of this advice is good, some not so good and some Notable – advice that stirs something inside, resonating in such a way that sets in motion that spark that lights a fire in us. I came across an article on forbes.com that falls under the “Notable” category that I want to share with you. It’s The Top 10 Lessons Steve Jobs Taught Us. None of the lessons are really anything new or surprising but, nevertheless, are insightful and very powerful if we put them into action.
Lessons like “You can’t connect the dots forward – only backward”; “Listen to that voice in the back of your head that tells you if you’re on the right track or not”; “Expect a lot from yourself and others”; “Find the most talented people to surround yourself with”; “Stay hungry, stay foolish”; “Anything is possible through hard work, determination, and a sense of vision”.
The lesson that really hit home for me is “Never fear failure” and the quote that followed. The quote is from Steve Job’s 2005 Stanford commencement speech…
“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
