In life, as indeed in work, there are people who live to their maximum potential and there are those who are content to go through this extraordinary journey passively. There are people standing on the edge of their lives who complain about how everything is wrong and how difficult and complicated everything is. And then there are those who want to take that step that could change everything. And then there are the people who day after day put a nice “green tick” on the last goal achieved in their dream list. We are talking about the likes of Elon Musk, Warren Buffet and Sidney Applebaum. People who are living examples of what hard work and taking initiative in life can do for you. These are the kind of people who turn adversity, problems and the crisis itself into the greatest opportunities from which to make the most of. See, success is more than an idea. It is a state of mind, a way of thinking, the attitude with which you face life every single day. So how do you do it? You do it by following these rules.
