7.9 Things I Learned About Success From Darth Vader

Written by Owen Stobbe

Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you have probably seen Star Wars 3. I did some ‘thinking outsiderepparttar box’ and came up with some ideas about success from watchingrepparttar 145865 movie.

1. Perseverance – If it doesn’t kill you it only makes you stronger.

Successful people persist. They’re tenacious and dogged. You can put an obstacle in front of them…They go around it, or over it, or even plough thru it.

The path to success, filled with obstacles it is.

2. Discipline – Practice, practice, practice.

Successful people practice what they do. They’re doin’ it, doin’ it.

When other people are resting they’re still doin’ it. They’ve formed a winning mindset, and are willing to work hard, and put inrepparttar 145866 effort in order to achieve their goals.

What may look easy to some, only becomes easy after countless, repeated efforts. If you want to become better you have to practice.

3. Have a mentor – Find someone who has achieved what you want and follow his path.

Successful people find a mentor who has achieved success and follow their path. Success leaves clues. Want to become rich in real estate? Look it up in google. Want to grow your 401k? Look up successful investors.

The key is to do some research in your area and find out who has already achieved what you want.

4. Willing to getrepparttar 145867 job done – Getting your hands dirty.

Successful people understand that sometimes they have to get their hands dirty in order to getrepparttar 145868 job done. If you’re a CEO that may mean answering phones, folding letters, packing orders.

For others it could be menial tasks, work you just don’t want to do, or anything that you normally don’t do.

Negligence – What is it and how do you prove it?

Accidents happen every day to people from all walks of life. Many people think that accidents only happen to other people and take it for granted that others will look out for them. Unfortunately people can behave negligently without even realising it. This can cause accidents that injure other people. This is clear fromrepparttar frequency of road traffic accidents and cases of workplace injury. The majority of accidents are somebody’s fault; around two thirds can be attributed to negligence, whether it is a car crash or a slip or trip in a public place.

So what is negligence?

Negligence is defined in law as: ‘The failure to exerciserepparttar 145697 care that an ordinary prudent person would exercise: either doing that which a prudent person would not do, or failing to do that which a prudent person would do.’

An example of negligence is when an employee is subjected to hazardous working conditions such as tripping over a box that has been left in a walkway or slips over a mess than hasn’t been cleared up. In these casesrepparttar 145698 employer would be negligent if it can be proven that they did not adhere to their duty of care. Duty of care can be defined as ‘a duty to do everything reasonably practicable to protect others from harm’. If an employer has failed in this duty then they are liable to compensaterepparttar 145699 injured person.

Types of personal injury litigation

There are three main types of personal injury claims that can be made:

•Road traffic accident claims are usually straightforward and include damage to property as well as personal injury. •Employers liability claims describe cases where a claimant was injured duringrepparttar 145700 course of their employment. This can include repetitive strain injury or asbestos related illness. •Public liability claims are claims which arise out of public use of products or premises, for example when a person trips over a loose paving slab.
