So this sites user base is obviously full of successful people, who have worked hard and sacraficed alot to get to where they are today.

What is the best advice in business/life that you have been given that helped you succeed to get to where you are today and how has it helped you?

Mine would have to be - 'If you want to be successful, surround yourself with successful people'.

this only applies in a modern corporate environment, with lots of levels of management and policy and procedures which if you follow to the letter results in huge costs and delays and nothing getting done

Everything you need to know in order to become a success:


"And if you need a friend, get a dog.  It's trench warfare out there, pal."

"The most valuable commodity I know of is information."

"If you're not inside, you're outside!"

"I don't throw darts at a board. I bet on sure things. Read Sun-tzu, The Art of War. Every battle is won before it is ever fought. Now you think about that."

Don't do anything you can't put your head down and go to sleep with at night, and don't risk what you have for what you don't need.

WS2, it looks like everyone else is hanging out for this one as well  :D

"The public's out there throwin' darts at a board, sport. I don't throw darts at a board - I bet on sure things."

"Money never sleeps, pal. Just made 800,000 Hong Kong Gold, it's been wired to ya. Play with it. You done good, but you gotta keep doing good. I showed you how the game works, now school's out."

If you aren't familiar with it don't go near it
Knowledge is power

Get educated, stay positive and get some advice, focus on the goal and take action, work hard. Read books and biographies, I read many but  Frank Lowy's biography"Pushing the Limits" stands out, read it twice and recommend it to everyone
