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.
