Originally seen on motivational site Mr. Self Development.com, take a look at these seven success tips that you can use in your own life and career, from auto industry great Henry Ford.
1. Serve others
“A business absolutely devoted to service will have only one worry about profits. They will be embarrassingly large.”
The real key to success is by serving others. Ford said, “Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service.” Are you serving others?
“There is no man living that cannot do more than he thinks he can.”
Many people never reach their full potential. Ford also said, “Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can’t, you’re right.” To become aware of your true potential, focus all of your attention to one task at a time.
3. Be productive
“It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste.”
While we all have the same amount of hours in our day, a successful person controls their day, and less successful people are controlled by their day. Are you mastering your time every day?
4. Solve problems
