Fail Your Way to Success – Donald Trump, Thomas Edison & Ellen DeGeneres ALL Agree!

As I have interviewed and researched serial entrepreneurs like Andy Kurtzig * , the founder of JustAnswers (r) , I have learned that they really do all share a couple of key personality traits. They also, typically, have immediate family members who had these same skills. We will evade the nurture or nature debate at this time as it is not pertinent how they attain these skills so much as it is important to understand that they have these practices. Let's look at some of the quotes that are some of my favorite and then analyze them to produce the top three tracks owned by successful people. And the final question is, "Can you attain these hits, or more so, do you already possess them?"

Here's my favorite quotes about success and failure …

1) "The phoenix must burn to emerge." – Janet Fitch

2) "What separates the winners from the losers is how a person responds to each new twist of fate." – Donald J. Trump

3) "It's a blip, not a catastrophe." – Donald J. Trump

4) "Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be" – John Wooden

5) "Only those who dare to fail very can ever achieve greatly." – Robert F. Kennedy

6) "As long as you are going to be thinking anyway, think big." – Donald J. Trump

7) "It's failure that gives you the proper perspective on success." – Ellen DeGeneres

8) "Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts." – Winston Churchill

Nobody in their right mind would take all those names from science, real estate, entertainment, wartime leader, and say they have anything in common. They would be incorrect. There are three common themes in all these statements which I agree fully with my concluding after after a decade of interviewing and researching people with the three attributes of success.

What are these three attributes …

1) Drive. Even ion the face of almost certain defeat the basketball player wants that last three points on the board. The wartime General will keep the city on early certain defeat. A TV entertainer like Ellen, etc. Has the drive to get up in the morning and conduct some local show, or their first stand up in a low-brow bar and have the drive to push forward!

2) Optimism. As to the point of number "1" above. These leader, or entertainer has to believe in their own minds that it will get better. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and it is not a train! It is also what I call the evolve part of the success formula. You are optimistic that you can fix, or evolve, your strategy and still be successful later.

3) Big Thinker. Again, without number "1" and number "2" this attribute can not exist. If you are going to build a ten unit apartment building, why not 500? If you can keep 50 people in the …

Paid CDL Training – Good Career Move For Financially Strapped

Did you know you can get CDL training with no upfront costs, even if your credit is terrible or nonexistent?

Well, you can. You can get trained at a certified truck driving school, get your Class A and get a full-time job in about one month. What’s the catch? The only “catch,” if that’s what it can be called, is that after training you must work for the company that trained you for one year. That’s it.

This paid CDL training involves schooling at a trucking company facility for about four weeks. Training is geared toward one thing: passing the test so you get your Class A CDL. Once you have that, you are assigned to a trainer and the two of you go out on the road together for on-the-job training. During this time you’ll learn the ins and outs of driving the big rigs and how to do your job the company way.

This one-the-job training generally lasts between four and six weeks. When it’s over, you’re given your own truck and you hit the road solo as a full company employee. This is all done without you having to pay a cent for training costs. Why would companies do this?

They provide this kind of CDL training because they’re looking for certain types of drivers. They’re looking for over-the-road (OTR) drivers. Now, let’s be honest here. Most truck drivers don’t like OTR jobs because they entail being out on the road for a week or two at a time, sometimes even longer, before you get home time. Most drivers don’t like being away from family for these long stretches.

But the fact is that people who have a brand new CDL have a slim chance of landing a decent driving job. They need experience. Most companies are looking for at least one year of experience. So by going through the paid CDL training scenario you’re getting exactly the experience needed to move forward in your career when that initial year is over.

Now, notice how I said “most” drivers don’t like OTR jobs. That’s because some don’t mind them at all and others actually enjoy it. I went through this type of Class A training and I didn’t have a problem with it. It was even enjoyable at times, crisscrossing the country and seeing the natural sights.

And if you’re young and have no wife and kids or mortgage, OTR work allows you to bank some serious cash during the year because expenses on the road are minimal. Some who start out as students stay on with the original company for much longer than the first year. If you do this, most companies offer bonus cash incentives to stay on after your first year is up.

The way I looked at it was, “It’s only a year. Big deal. When it’s over I’ll have valuable experience that will benefit me big-time.” And that is indeed the case. One year of OTR experience is looked upon as rock-solid …
