Richard Branson has reached the pinnacle of success whichever measure one uses. He launched his first business while he was a teenager and at 20 he started a mail order record business. At 22, he had a record store chain. Ever since then many companies and conglomerates are attributed to him some of which notably are Virgin Records, Virgin Airlines, Virgin Cruises, and Virgin galactic. Apart from his success in the business world, Branson is always a happy man. He makes out time to enjoy the outdoors with his family and friends. The reason for this, according to Branson, is to love others, be grateful, be kind, and mindful. So, he has provided eight tips in this blog for readers to understand how they can keep going and craft their own success with happiness. The first tip is that one should never measure his success with the amount of money he has made as a measure. Branson contends that the money will surely come when one is passionate about what he does and is having fun in his business. The next tip is never to rely on technology for conversation. Rely on face to face conversations with clients and family. The other tips are highlighted in the blog.
- take the time to talk to people face to face and actively listen and respond to them.
- Do things that bring you joy, even in work, as dread suck the creative inspiration and energy right out of a person.
- try new things, as we learn as we go and do not be afraid to dream.
