We can learn a lot about success from those who have achieved it.
Three people who have helped me include Jimmy Kimmel, the host of the late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live; Gary Vaynerchuk, a Soviet-bloc immigrant who is a social media; and business leader, and Charlie Brock.
I’ve never met Jimmy Kimmel. I’ve only seen him on television, but his dedication to hard work has impressed me.
In a recent article, Kimmel said, “The only thing that I think I did right is that I always try to work harder than anyone else. It eliminates a lot of excuses from people if they see me working very hard.”
Among other habits, Kimmel is a stickler for being on time for meetings.
“I think it is disrespectful when you are late,” he says.
It is hard work to be on time, but it pays off.http://www.success.com/article/jimmy-kimmel-the-ha…
Don’t let the jovial, frat-boy image that Kimmel has portrayed on television fool you. He is a man who cares for others, works hard, and is willing to pay the price for success.
Do the right thing and pay the price
I have also never met Gary Vaynerchuk, but I have listened to many of his videos and read his books. He says he has worked 19 hours a day for 20 years.
As Vaynerchuk says, “I believe that my success is due in part to some level of skill. But more than that, I believe that I win because I out-work people.”
Vaynerchuk was born in Belarus in the former Soviet Union. His parents immigrated to the United States when he was young, and he grew up working, even as a child.
He started a revolutionary (at the time) business on YouTube called Wine Library talking about wines available at his family’s wine store. He now runs a multi-million dollar social media marketing agency, speaks professionally, and is a best-selling author.
The theme I see coming from Gary Vaynerchuk is a desire to do the right thing and pay the price. He is constantly helping others and giving to them. He is giving, giving, giving, and then he makes sure he asks for something in return.
