To say that I have always been a great fan of Sir Richard is an understatement. To me, he epitomizes the spirit of a good person, a loving family man and wise leader. He has known business success and failure but he maintains an innate likability; an authenticity that I admire. He may not hit a home run every time but I find myself rooting for him. On his blog, he has shared this wisdom:
1. Follow your dreams & just do it.
You will live a much better life if you just do it and pursue your passions. Those people who spend their time working on things they love are usually the ones enjoying life the most. They are also the ones who dared to take a risk and chase their dreams.
2. Make a positive difference and do some good
If you aren't making a positive difference to other people's lives, then you shouldn't be in business. Companies have a responsibility to make a difference in the world, for their staff, their customers - everyone.
3. Believe in your ideas and be the best
Belief in yourself and belief in your business ideas can make all the difference between success and failure. If you aren't proud of your idea and believe in your plans, why should anybody else?
