I watched this interesting program on TV last night
One guy Naveen Jain was especially interesting, and gave away some great one liners
“When you tell someone what you’re doing and they don’t think its a crazy idea – then you’re thinking too small”
“I work long hours – there is no substitute”
” No matter how smart you are – there is no substitute for hard work”
” If you want to succeed in life you have to be at your best – and the only way to be at your best is to give 100% of yourself”
Interviewer Question – “A lot of people believe that entrepreneurs take risks” – Naveen Jain response “No its not true at all….entrepreneurs hate risk, only play a game that you can win”.
“Making money is a by product of doing things you really enjoy doing, making money is never a goal in itself. You have to enjoy the process in order to get to the end result. If you only focus on the end goal then you will never achieve that goal.”
It was a really interesting program which took in 2 other billionaires stories as well. But i seemed to feel more of a connection to Naveen.
There are loads of books out there which focus on the “Millionaire Mindset” – which are really interesting. And show that the majority of people get rich by doing simple things consistently well.
