In October 2013, I was reflecting on the 770 blog posts I had written to date, what I had learned from them and how best I should sum them up. Now, in April 2016, I’m now up to 961 blogs and still learning!

I thought I would share the lessons again for you…

These are my own originals – but I add four from the more famous below.

  1. Persistence is not pigheadedness.
  2. Passion is authentic – you either love what you do every day… or you don’t
  3. People are everything to success (family, friends, community colleagues) you cannot do it alone
  4. Process sets you free; it provides the foundations for growth
  5. ‘Hope’ is not a strategy
  6. Brands are held in the heart of the customer
  7. It is not about me – it is about the legacy I create well beyond my own generation – Asking “Am I making the planet a better place over and over again?”
  8. The more I teach the more I learn.
  9. We need to know failure to know success.

Which brings me to some of the great quotes put together in a presentation by friend Amanda Gore:

  • “I have not failed I have just found 10,000 ways that did not work” Thomas Edison
  • “Remember that failure is an event not a person.” Zig Ziglar
  • “Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without loosing your enthusiasm” Winston Churchill
  • “Just because you fail at one thing doesn’t mean you will fail at everything” Marilyn Monroe
