Russell Simmons Top 10 Rules for Success
1. Stay Focused
Your dream, goal or business may not, and in-fact rarely ever does work out the way you planned.
As the saying goes “The only way to guarantee failure is to quit” – Stick it out! Often when things don’t work out exactly as you planned it is just the universe steering you in a better direction. Every business or goal will encounter roadblocks and failures along the way. Trust that everything will work out in the end, stay focused and do whatever it takes to keep your dream alive!
“The person who stays focused on his dream, realizes his dream”
2. Add Value
Provide services people really need. The successful people of this world are really just those that offer the most value to others. If you are working at a job, your value is the service you provide for your employer, or to your customers, always to the best of your ability. When you add value you can only be rewarded in the long run.
3. Have An Honest Intention
A honest intention is at the core of giving people what they really need. Give without expectation of receiving anything in return. Love your business or what you do enough to give without expectation, when you do this the financial return is always much greater.
4. Needing Nothing Attracts Everything
When you release the need for “things”, when you are not attached to the “getting” you are instantly rich. Operate from abundance and attract abundance.
5. Go The Extra Mile!
“The man who does more than he is paid, will soon be paid more than he does” Always be willing to go the extra mile and provide that extra bit of greatness than your competitors or any expectations, do this and you can never fail.

6. Just Give!
Giving is it’s own reward. No human has ever felt bad after giving without expectation. Jesus taught If you’re a good giver,you will be a great getter. Have faith it will have a return, but know that giving is enough itself.
7. Be Awake And Ready For Opportunities
Those that are living in the present moment are more aware and ready for opportunities when they present themselves. The more awake we are, the higher we can function in our world and the greater our work (and result) will be.
Practise meditation and living in the present, it will completely change your life almost instantly.
8. Have Faith
It really doesn’t matter which religion you follow, or if you choose to follow no religion. If you have faith in yourself, faith in the universe and faith that everything will work out beyond your expectations, you are then operating from a mindset that is open to MAKING IT HAPPEN. You are operating from a mindset that is looking for opportunities, ready to work and ready to receive success as a result of your efforts.
The opposite is also true, if you have no faith things will work out, you will likely look for excuses as to why you have not and will not succeed.
9. Take Care Of Yourself
Just like when you want a better body, you focus on exercise and eating healthy foods – the result is a better looking, stronger physically body. Your mind needs the same, if not more care and daily.
Practise meditation and self development each and every day and you will soon see your mind from stronger and your life grow richer in every area.
10. Take Responsibility
Those that get on in this world are the ones that take responsibility for their life. If things don’t go right (aka LIFE) they do not blame others or play victim. They get on with things and LEARN THE LESSON.
Our happiness is up to us. We choose how we react to every circumstance that arrives in our lives. Take responsibility and take action.
