Law of Success:  The Untold Secrets

Success Stories

Success Stories

Success stories of others inspire us on to our own success. We need to know that others have created success stories of their own. Success stories teach us about some of the success factors that are integral to everyone’s success stories. Many of us do not have the ability to imagine ourselves in our own success stories, because we think we are too old, too young, too poor, uneducated, too many difficult circumstances, or some other reason. When we read others’ success stories, it helps us to believe in the possibility of our own success and the creation of our own success stories.

Some of the success stories that follow are about people who had their own adversities to overcome to become success stories. They did overcome them. You can too.

Col. Harlan Sanders retired and received his first social security check when he was 65. That check was $90.00. He looked at that check and said “I am not going to live like this.” He decided to start a restaurant chain based on his wife’s recipe for frying chicken. No matter what age you are, if he can start a restaurant at 65, you can create your own success story. KFC’s success stories let us know that age is not a factor. Mrs. Field’s Cookies – another powerful success story – was created by a young woman who was only 20 years old. These are wonderful success stories that say age need not be an adverse factor. Persistence and motivation are keys in these success stories.

Bankruptcy hasn’t stopped success. Walt Disney and Sam Walton’s success stories show that both experienced bankruptcy. Walt Disney went around showing his drawings of a mouse to potential investors, bankers, and friends and went bankrupt while he was doing it. But he persisted, and eventually Disneyland and the Walt Disney Corporation came to existence. Sam Walton was also a dreamer whose dream of a national chain of variety stores propelled him his whole life. His first store went bankrupt. His second store went bankrupt. He persisted, and today Wal-Mart is one of the world‘s biggest stores.
Walt Disney and Sam Walton demonstrate with their success stories, that you can overcome bad credit and financial failure and still make your dream come true. Dreams are key success factors in these success stories.

A 33-year old truck driver named Larry Walters wanted to fly, but had no education or money. Determination is key success factor to the next two success stories. Grabbing a pellet gun, and a six pack of beer, he tied 42 weather balloons to his lawn chair and began to rise into the air. His neighbors watched him rise to 16,000 feet in the air. When he was ready, he shot out one balloon at a time and slowly descended to a safe landing. Rose Blumkin was Russian born and came to the US in 1917. She went on to work very hard and owned and operated a $180 million carpet company. When she was 90 she sold her company to her family in a contract to allow her to stay on and help run the business. She had a disagreement with her grandson, and quit to start another carpet business. I never signed a non-compete agreement she said as she walked out the door. Five years later she celebrated her 100th birthday, running around in a wheelchair, operating her $5 million carpet business. These unusual success stories tell us that you can do it too. Gumption and belief in one’s self are keys in these success stories. Please visit our Success Story page for more success stories illustrating success factors by clicking here.
