    Persistence, learning new skills, having good care of the clients, and being ethical and profesional. Is never late to study and keep getting different sets of skills. Also trying my best to be a good team member. But that's very hard to achieve with all types of personalities and characters out there. :D

    I achieved success through vision board, working hard towards what I vision for myself, when I fall down I stand up and try again and again - perseverance, humble, loyal to my boss and work, over the rules and regulations, Respect, Kindness, and most importantly praying to our Heavenly Father in Heaven.

    I am more consider myself accomplished and very experienced than successful. I started my first business at 15 years old. By the time I was 19, I had 16 employees.

My son said that I will never grow up yet I am very responsible and I do not afraid to make a mistake to get what I want. So I had made every mistake in the book.

    I'm in a career that I love and provides me with freedom and flexibility. I believe success comes through consistency, focus and hard work. Knowing what you want will keep you going even when little "bumps" come your way.

    1. Consistently worked hard. 2. Used 20-50% of my time to identify and improve my weakest attribute. 3. Never gave up. 99% of the the time I picked myself up after I failed. 1% of the time a friend or family member did. Sounds simple and easy. But few ppl can persist long enough to achieve success.

    I'm a man from very humble beginnings. Born and raised on a council estate in Bradford West Yorkshire. I left school at 16 and served in the forces for 6yrs before embarking on a career in construction. Over the last three decades I've built up multi million pound turnover construction group. I am proud to say I now employ directly or via sub contractors over 300 people.

    Obsessive neglect and compulsive irrational risk taking. And the whole 2 carbon fragment thing above. Yes. I was a chemistry major, although finding chemistry here has proven difficult. Very. Difficult that is. And i was also a math/physics major. And even as I re-read all that, it comes across as incredibly boring. Upstaged by one of my pets, yet again. I'm really not boring. And my pets really do seem more interesting. Until they chew up your shoe, that is. Then they seem expendable. In a nice way. In a nice, calm, are-you-kidding-me way. Yes. My parents used to change the locks on the doors after they made me go to summer camp. And yes, to this day I have a deep, psychopathological, morbid fear of door locks, summer camp, and chocolate pudding. More on the pudding later. It isn't pretty.

    When you love what you do the money will follow. Youll never work another day in your life. I call it PASSION. I have been blessed doing what I love and touching people lives inside and out. You'll never fail if you don't take a chance in pursing what you LOVE.

    I went straight from undergrad to law school to opening my own law firm. My father and his father before him were all self-employed entrepreneurs. At the time I graduated I did not wish to work for the family oil company so I set to make my own success. My father drilled into me my worth ethic and that you will not get anywhere depending on anyone but yourself. He also said to do what you know and make sure you stay in your own backyard...I knew the law and its been mine for 26 years.

    I had always worked for someone that knew what they are doing and learned from their way of doing things. I sought to always work for the most successful people. It really paid off. Today my style and way of doing things - learning from those that are successful - continues to be the fastest route to prosperity and happiness.
