RULE 1 for success!

Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group Ltd., controls over 400 companies.
Branson started his entrepreneurial journey with a magazine publication, and has since successfully expanded into a variety of industries, such as music, banking, aviation, space flight, healthcare, mobile phones, retail, travel, to name a few.
Branson did not excel at school as he struggled with dyslexia, and was more interested in extracurricular activities.
At the age of fifteen, he started his first business trying to grow trees. He then dropped out of high school at age sixteen.
After quitting school, he started a magazine about youth culture, called The Student.
Branson started to sell advertisements to companies trying to tap into the student market.
He then started a mail-order record company called Virgin to complement the student magazine.
As his record business expanded, Branson started his own record label, Virgin Music.
In 1984, Branson started Virgin Atlantic Airways, competing in a market dominated by British Airways.
In 1999, Branson started Virgin Mobile.
I could go on and on with a huge list of actions that Branson has started over the years.
What’s Branson’s rule 1 to success?
Branson was not a great student or a great business manager — he’s a great starter!
The first rule to success is to STOP thinking and planning about whatever you are dreaming of accomplishing in your life, and GET STARTED TODAY!
Nothing ever happens without taking action.
