Thomas Edison long ago said that genius is one percent inspiration and ninety nine percent perspiration. I believe the same is true about success be it artistic, literary, career or business. Without exception success is a mixture between inspiration and perspiration, creativity and planning, exaltation and hard work.
We all have ideas; if anything we all have too many ideas. It seems to me that the difference between ‘normal’ people and highly successful people, financially and otherwise, is that the former are satisfied simply with having ideas; ‘extraordinary’ people go several steps further to make ideas and success.
Ten steps further, to be precise!
