    Thanks for the inspiring and educational words. I am currently in the midst of starting up my wedding photography company, Red Photo. I was glad to see that I have been following many of the things that are on your list. I just need to be a little patient and see it through. Great advice, as always.

    I really enjoyed reading this article and agree thoroughly with your secrets to being successful. I think that anyone who genuinely followed this formula would get results. I have recently been involved in setting up a website whose aim is to inspire people to be more successful and would love to know what you thought of it.

    Hi Jeff,
    A very encouraging list. Passion is something that a lot of people don’t have, it reflects in their business, whether it’s a blog, website or offline business.
    There is too much get rich quick these days, people miss the point completely.
    When people ask me about Blogging, I tell them the hours I put in, especially at the start, they take a step back and say “It’s like a job”. Well yes, it requires work, dedication and passion.
    Take traffic generation, people try for a few days, give up because they only get 20 visitors, then brand every thing out there as a scam. If you stick with it, every day, those 20 visitors will become 2000. And so on.

    Thanks for a great article.

    Pete

    Awesome and inspiring!!! Some of these secrets I am abiding by them. Though in paid employment, I am about to make that move but need to get it right in areas I fall short i.e strength in weak ties. Improve my network which in turns helps my networth. And that’s why I subscribe to your blog for mentoring. I hope to read more of this.

    I’d also add, know when to get out. If Microsoft or Google wants to buy you, remember they can throw 300 developers on something and reverse engineer it. Sell!

    Very true, especially when you got a clear, specific goal in mind and you recognize the power of word of mouth, things get much easier. Of course success is still a long way, but the first steps are what make or destroy any entrepreneurial act. If you start good, you can fail along the road, or succeed. But if you start badly, you got very few hopes left.

    Inspiring perspective, thanks Jeff. I think sometimes we forget how far a bit of common sense and practicality will get us.

    A really good post – I actually picked this up on my Twitterfeed – I think the Universe wanted me to read it, as I am one of those self believers who threw caution to the wind and self published. It’s a rocky road, but what Jeff has written is absolutely true on all fronts and kind of how I am living my life (but while still being an IT professional on the side until fame and fortune as a top 100 author finds me – and not long people – watch this space :-) but seriously, thanks Jeff, a good and timely post
    xx love and blessing on all,
    Angela

    I agree that passion is so important. In Every post I try to convey my love of creativity and custom gifts. I also agree about the time one must commit…..don’t be afraid to invest the time.

  • http://www.marybuergindogportraits.com Mary

    I enjoyed this post…. i think it’s all about vision, setting clear goals and as you said, passion to acheive them. I think when you enter the mindset that these goals WILL be acheived, then it’s just a matter of moving forward and maintaining the momentum. Thanks for this article…

    Point 1 – Relentless Passion. This for me is the primary secret to success because without that hunger to succeed, you are never going to get off the first step that will allow you to climb others. Yet another great article Jeff :)

    Thanks Jeff. This is short and to the point. I believe that having more than enough time and money (and health and great relationships with people) are four out of four of the elements of wealth! Thanks again for your articles. They are always helpful!

    I would add self-confidence which is a by product of one’s outer and inner self image.

      Agree! With self confidence I think you can surpass it all. But great post! Worth the read.
