Philanthropist and tycoon Richard Branson may have started with Virgin Records, but his Virgin Group has now grown to over 400 firms under one umbrella. This serial entrepreneur has enjoyed an incredible, rich life, welcoming moments of triumph and converting mistakes into successes through an irrepressible spirit and willingness to learn. Persistence is key to his success!
We take inspiration from Richards’ life story this week with his top 5 quotes on embracing challenges and overcoming setbacks:
“There is no greater thing you can do with your life and your work than follow your passions – in a way that serves the world and you.”
“Respect is how to treat everyone, not just those you want to impress.”
“You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.”
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”
“To be successful you have to be out there, you have to hit the ground running.”
