What is Success?
Success is hard. After all anything of real value generally isn't easy to get - A college degree, a million dollars (unless you win the lottery) and true love are all things you must work at to achieve. Effort, tenacity, motivation, inspiration, determination, planning, desire, belief are all foundations for achieving success - whatever success means to you.
Look at some of the most successful people in business. Oprah Winfrey
is worth $3 BILLION dollars. She didn't come by that easily. Years of hard work, wins and failures were all part of her journey. Oprah's concept of success is not about money. She says
, "The reason I've been able to be so financially successful is my focus has never, ever for one minute been money."
In Mark Cuban's interview with Sandra Yancey
, Mark's definition of personal success has nothing to do with money. He says, "Success is waking up in the morning with a smile on your face, happy about the day." When it comes to business, Mark says that the number one reason people fail in business is because they don't want to do the work.
And that's where Sandra's R.I.S.E. formula comes in.
