8 Powerful Success Lessons We Can Learn from Billionaire Art Williams’ Speech: JUST DO IT

Published

on

Art Williams (Net Worth – $3. 5 Billion) is the founder of A. L. Williams & Associates.

In 1987, he gave a powerful speech in which he revealed the primary factors that result in winning in business.

I always listen to the speech because it motivates me to take action and reminds me about the things I must continuously do for me to succeed. Below are 8 success lessons I learned from the speech

  1. It’s Impossible to Win in Business if You Don’t Possess Mental Toughness

Success in business requires positivity, the ability to focus, and self-confidence. People who lack these qualities seldom succeed in business because they fall for distractions and give up during hard times. Mentally tough people succeed because they can persevere the difficulties they face in businesses since they are positive, focused, and self-confident.

  1. A College Degree in Business is Not Worth The Paper It’s Written On

According to Art Williams, a degree in business is unimportant as most business professors have no business experience because, as he puts it, “they deal with a bunch of theory.”

I support Art Williams because I have a business degree and I’ve never seen its importance in the business world. The business world needs experience and not papers. No matter how many degrees you have, you need experience for you to succeed in business. For this reason, an individual without a business degree but has business experience is more likely to win in business than a person with 100 business degrees and zero business experience.

Furthermore, business degrees seldom lead to business success because they prepare students for employment. You can’t succeed in business by being prepared for employment and being taught by someone who has never been in business.

  1. Artificial Things are not the Key to Winning in Business

Today, many people believe success in business requires artificial things such as a high I.Q, and a college degree. Little do they know that an individual’s inner qualities are the primary determinants of winning in business.

  1. To Succeed You Must Get Excited

According to Art Williams, only the people who get excited about the journey to success succeed. Excitement makes you do things passionately and enthusiastically hence making it impossible for you to give up. It also makes you work hard because you become obsessed with whatever you are doing.

As well, excitement leads to success because it attracts people who are willing to help you achieve your dreams. Therefore, GET EXCITED.

  1. Become a Dreamer

Art Williams believes having a dream is the key to winning.

I also believe that having a dream makes you win because a dream inspires you to work hard and achieve big things.

My dream inspires me to work really hard because I know that I will be the happiest person in the world if I live the life of my dreams. Moreover, it makes me work even when I don’t feel like working and enables me to embrace obstacles knowing that they are necessary for success.

  1. Believe You Can

If you believe YOU CAN’T you will fail because the subconscious mind always attracts situations that match your thoughts. Besides this, believing YOU CAN’T will result in you wrongly interpreting obstacles since you will see them as proof that you can’t achieve your goals.

Therefore, for you to win, you must believe YOU CAN.

  1. If You Want to Win You Will Be Controversial

If you want to win you will be controversial because you will have to do things that many people don’t. You will have to believe in achieving big things, and you will have to come up with unique products or services that people have never seen. For this reason, people will doubt your success.

  1. You Need a Firm Spiritual Life for you to Succeed in Business

Spiritual practices such as meditation can influence success in business because they clear the mind hence leading to good decision making. Besides this, embracing a spiritual life leads to inner peace that helps an individual succeed because a person with inner peace never worries when she meets obstacles on the journey to success.
