Tips for success, from the best.

The road to success is usually not linear, it’s a bumpy, jagged one full of twists and turns. Here are some tips from some successful tycoons who went along for the bumpy ride and achieved their dreams along the way.

Take risks.
I can never be safe; I always try and go against the grain. As soon as I accomplish one thing, I just set a higher goal. That’s how I’ve gotten to where I am.
-Beyonce

Just do it, literally. 
You just have to keep on doing what you do. It’s the lesson I get from my husband; he just says, “Keep going. Start by starting.”
-Meryl Streep

Be true to yourself.
Why do I talk about the benefits of failure? Simply because failure meant a stripping away of the inessential. I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was, and began to direct all my energy into finishing the only work that mattered to me.
-J.K. Rowling

Make each day count.
For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself, “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.
-Steve Jobs

Evaluate yourself. 
I think that’s the single best piece of advice: constantly think about how you could be doing things better and questioning yourself.
-Elon Musk

Find your support system.
I feel really grateful to the people who encouraged me and helped me develop. Nobody can succeed on their own.
-Sheryl Sandberg

Self-esteem is king.
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
-Lucille Ball

Suck it up.
Hustle isn’t just working on the things you like. It means doing the things you don’t enjoy so you can do the things you love.
-Unknown

Take advantage of the present.
Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.
-Oprah Winfrey

Protect your name.
It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.
-Warren Buffett
