8 things successful people do, and why they work

Success is defined by the individual. For some, it may be owning a mega yacht and retiring by age 35. For others, it may be developing the next Instagram. What’s the one thing that the most successful self-made people in the world (i.e., Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Walt Disney…) have in common? Effort. And not just from 9am-5pm.

Like us “average” human beings, they had to go through their ups and downs. The idea of a light bulb probably sounded ludicrous in the late 1800s – ludicrous to everyone but Thomas Edison.

But he didn’t stop there. And neither did Steve Jobs. They probably could have sat back and lived off of their patents, but what’s the fun in that? In this infographic published by Fast Business Canada and designed by Justin Muirbank, you will find some of the greatest lessons that you can apply to your business and daily life to become more successful.
