  • one day, I will be a successful man , and business man , the problem is when you have people around you they make you feel broken person , unsuccessful and failed, thank you

  • I really have worked hard.. i deserve 15 likes for avoiding bad friends

  • “What leads to success?” - Yeah, this is an interesting and popular issue for everyone to discuss nowadays. And, I’m sure he mentioned the success of one’s career.

  • Wonderfully concise Richard, I love it, as a minimalist artist it fascinates me, minimal on time but everything is in there.

  • so prescise....

  • This is perfect! It sums up my philosophy perfectly!

  • 1. Money

  • I am a Jobless and I am here

  • with in a short span of time he gave answer to the Most Repeated Question "How to success ?, What lead to success ??

  • one important idea is missing here - the pathway to success ALWAYS has a critical moment of leverage at which time you need to make the right (or lucky) decision.  for example, Bill Gates getting IBM on board was a BIG moment of leverage, without that, no-one would have heard of him.   every single successful person will be able to highlight a moment of leverage without which they would have been much less successful

  • AMAZING & ONLY 3 MINUTES ! ! ! Cool. Best most motivational instructing out of all, a person I know has sent via text of the Youtube link to Ted Videos. The other was 20 minutes one that clicked on from txt that person sent me.

  • I would like to add something else to this list and it is probably the most important one in my opinion, it's TAKING ACTION. Having the motivation to do something you need/want to do is not enough, you need to take action, you always see people talking about the things that they're going to do, the goals they're going to achieve, the good grades they'll get, and a whole lot more, but most of these people don't even do it. So stop talking and start doing, all of the hard things in life are just a series of easy steps that is if you take the first step. They say the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step, and if you don't take that step now, you will most likely never take it. Hence the Nike ad campaign "JUST DO IT"

  • Short and to the point. I like that.

  • It is a good video!

  • Video starts at

  • Funny he missed out on 'be male', 'be white (or asian),' 'be rich', 'have well connected parents', 'get into Harvard (or equivalent)', 'steal other peoples ideas', 'have your mother sitting on the same board as an IBM bigwig'
