I recently watched a three-minute video on TED about “What Leads to Success?” by Richard St. John. He has spent over the last ten years studying successful people and he came up with the following 8 things people need to succeed:

Passion — Do it for love not money
Work Hard
Being good at something
Focus on one thing
Push yourself
Serve — Serve others something of value

I think most people can have success in their life as long as they consistently apply these qualities over and over until they reach their goals.
