Andrew Carnegie arrived in the U.S. in 1848 with barely a dollar to his name. By 1901, he was the richest man in the world. Here are Carnegie’s “10 Rules of Success.”
- Define your purpose. Create a plan of action and start working toward it immediately.
- Create “master-mind alliances.” Contact and work with people who can serve as mentors.
- Go the extra mile. Do more than what is expected of you.
- Practice “applied faith.” Believe in yourself.
- Have personal initiative. Do what you have to without being told.
- Indulge your imagination.
- Exert enthusiasm – and a positive attitude.
- Think accurately.
- Concentrate your effort. Don’t become distracted.
- Profit from adversity. Learn from mistakes. Reflect on setbacks and move forward.
