Robin’s 73 Best Business and Success Lessons

The 73 Best Lessons I’ve Learned for Leadership Success in Business and Life ?By Robin Sharma, author of the international bestseller “The Leader Who Had No Title”

1. You can really Lead Without a Title.

2. Knowing what to do and not doing it is the same as not knowing what to do.

3. Give away what you most wish to receive.

4. The antidote to stagnation is innovation.

5. The conversations you are most resisting are the conversations you most need to be having.

6. Leadership is no longer about position – but passion. It’s no longer about image but impact. This is Leadership 2.0.

7. The bigger the dream, the more important to the team.

8. Visionaries see the “impossible” as the inevitable.


The following themes emerge from the vast amount of varied evidence that you and everyone else are eternal spiritual/energy beings having a human experience:

1. You are one with the One and part of Source. As such, your enduring self/consciousness/spirit does not die, cannot be hurt, and cannot ultimately fail.

2. Life truly is a totally safe and magnificent adventure amidst eternity. That's a very important lesson so let's break that down:

a. "totally safe" means that nothing can destroy your soul--not even a nuclear missile fired at point blank range. Your essence is deathless and indestructible.

b. "magnificent adventure": mythic and contemporary stories have long inspired us to realize the hero within and succeed despite seemingly overwhelming odds.

c. "eternity" is forever, infinite, endless, always present but ever changing. Time is a human construct, not an absolute phenomenon in other time/space dimensions.

3. Heaven is here now. Topics from the original religious Aramaic meanings to quantum physics input concur: heaven is not a place, but a vibrational reality, a level of awareness in which one perceives with spiritual as well as physical senses.

4. You can increasingly know and show #3 when you truly desire it, ask for assistance, and follow your optimal path

5. You are a wise, infinite, special and powerful being. That is true now--whether you know it or not. It may seem easier to let someone else direct your life, but the real joy in life happens when you take responsibility for yourself. You have the opportunity to co-create a wonderful life . . . or not. It's up to you.

6. God/Universe/Spirit is always assisting and guiding you. Help from the Divine flows without cease or limit. When you realize that, and live in such a way that you internalize it, your life will naturally move toward the highest possibilities in every aspect of life.

7. You are here to let your light shine, to share your greatest gifts, to sing all your heart songs. When you do, you feel happy and great; those are the surest clues that you're on the right path.

8. You, as a soul, volunteered to come to Earth for a short while because of the exquisite opportunities for service, adventure, growth and enjoyment.

9. Knowing #1-8 is the good news that sets you free, no matter what is going on around you. Knowing this truth allows you to survive, and even thrive, amidst life's inevitable changes and challenges. You can increasingly know your high soul nature and live accordingly, enjoying the life of your dreams--the life you have imagined!

Thank you for sharing this good news--especially with people in the following groups:

- those with a loved one, especially a child, who has recently died or is dying

- those who are struggling with significant life challenges

- those w/early religious upbringing re fear of God and hell

- those who have a terminal disease and are dying

- those with a loved one who committed suicide

- those who want to more deeply know and show their fullest potential in body, mind and spirit.

1. The best way to get even is to forget...

2. Feed your faith and your doubts will starve to death...

3. God wants spiritual fruits, not religious nuts...

4. Some folks wear their halos much too tight...

5. Some marriages are made in heaven, but they ALL have to be maintained on earth...

6. Unless You can create the WHOLE universe in 5 days, Then perhaps giving "advice" to God, isn't such a good idea!

7. Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, and faith looks up...

8. Standing in the middle of the road is dangerous. You will get knocked down by the traffic from both ways...

9. Words are windows to the heart.




It is easy to not lie if one doesn’t fear the truth.

It is easy to not steal if one doesn’t fear need.

It is easy to not envy if one doesn’t fear that one’s status is threatened.


Power of Money, By Adam Khoo

Some of you may already know that I travel around the region pretty frequently, having to visit and conduct seminars at my offices in Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Suzhou (China). I am in the airport almost every other week so I get to bump into many people who have attended my seminars or have read my books.

Recently, someone came up to me on a plane to KL and looked rather shocked. He asked, ‘How come a millionaire like you is traveling economy?’ My reply was, ‘That’s why I am a millionaire.’ He still looked pretty confused. This again confirms that greatest lie ever told about wealth (which I wrote about in my latest book ‘Secrets of Self-Made Millionaires’). Many people have been brainwashed to think that millionaires have to wear Gucci, Hugo Boss, Rolex, and sit on first class in air travel. This is why so many people never become rich because the moment that earn more money, they think that it is only natural that they spend more, putting them back to square one.


To Begin  With

Words jump out at me.  When I heard someone today say, "To begin with..." my  thoughts turned to all the possibilities.

To begin  with...FAITH!

You cannot say that  you have faith if when you fall you give up.  Faith means you will  be given the strength to rise, or the hand to be lifted up.  But don't  lie there waiting.  God provides for the smallest bird, but He  doesn't throw the seed into the nest.  They were created to  fly.

To begin  with...HOPE!

Trust that in all things there is hope.  Even when we cannot see the opportunity, there it is in the out stretched  hand, the listening ear, the smiling face, the sunrise.

To begin with...LOVE!


Sir Edmund Hillary was the first man to climb Mount Everest.

On May 29, 1953 he scaled the highest mountain then known to man-29,000 feet straight up. He was knighted for his efforts.

He even made American Express card commercials because of it!

However, until we read his book, High Adventure,

we don't understand that Hillary had to grow into this success.

You see, in 1952 he attempted to climb Mount Everest , but failed. A few weeks later a group in England asked him to address its members.

Hillary walked on stage to a thunderous applause. The audience was recognizing an attempt at greatness, but Edmund Hillary saw himself as a failure. He moved away from the microphone and walked to the edge of the platform. He made a fist and pointed at a picture of the mountain.

He said in a loud voice, " Mount Everest , you beat me the first time, but I'll beat you the next time because you've grown all you are going to grow... but I'm still growing!"

This is the attitude that has made most of the world renowned achievers to reach their goal in life!

The attitude of “ learning & growing” every moment in life!
A blind boy sat on the steps of a building with a hat by his feet. He held up a sign which said: 'I am blind, please help.' There were only a few coins in the hat.

A man was walking by. He took a few coins from his pocket and dropped them into the hat. He then took the sign, turned it around, and wrote some words.

He put the sign back so that everyone who walked by would see the new words.

Soon the hat began to fill up. A lot more people were giving money to the blind boy. That afternoon the man who had changed the sign came to see how things were. The boy recognized his footsteps and asked, 'Were you the one who changed my sign this morning? What did you write?'

The man said, 'I only wrote the truth. I said what you said but in a different way.'

What he had written was: 'Today is a beautiful day and I cannot see it.'

Do you think the first sign and the second sign were saying the same thing?

Of course both signs told people the boy was blind. But the first sign simply said the boy was blind. The second sign told people they were so lucky that they were not blind.

Should we be surprised that the second sign was more effective?

Moral of the Story: Be thankful for what you have.
Be creative. Be innovative. Think differently and positively.

If you don't have direction, you have nothing to aim for. Without a target, you are shooting blanks into the wind. Real desires are solid, not nebulous and vague. How can you hope to achieve if you have nothing to shoot for?

Be definite! Set well-defined goals. As you do, you will discover a map to a better life. It doesn't matter if these goals are small, at first. They are still goals, and when you achieve them, you can move onto the next one with a sense of confidence.

Set an achievable goal, today, and relish journeying toward your destination!

Real happiness does not come from the fulfillment of every desire. You can chase an endless chain of wishes and desires, and still manage to be unhappy.

So how and when does happiness come? It comes, quite simply, when you allow it.


Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something,
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times,
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations,
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge,
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes,
They will teach you valuable lessons.
