Success stories are inspiring. They point us toward what might we experience on our way to our own success, leading us to our own stories, and one day, we might actually make our own.
Successful people are interviewed every now and then. Some are given the opportunity to give speeches.
Here are three similarities of all the stories, speeches, and experiences.
1. Left into the fray of the open world early on

 

 

Dropping out. Losing contact with their family. Essentially, being left to fend on their own.

 

Examples are Bill Gates (Microsoft), David Karp (Tumblr), James H. Clark (Netscape).Our examples above dropped out of school around their teenage years. They tasted the dangers of the real world early.

 

We’re not saying you should drop out of school — we’re saying you should learn as early as you can, because school might prepare your skills, but not give you the experience right away.

 

2. No one cares about you in the real world

 

 

It’s harsh, but many successful people point this out in their speeches.

 

Bill Gates, in verbatim, says “The real world won’t care as much about your self-esteem as much as your school does. It’ll expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.”

 

If we reframe it, we might be able to say that with the right action, the world will give us the self-esteem that schools simply cannot.

 

3. Take everything as an opportunity

 

Successful people tend to start out in situations that require innovation, even the smallest ones. They take advantage of the situation and see it as an opportunity to improve.

 

Some success stories simply do not have the laboratories and equipment. There’s Mike Little and Michel Valdrighi, when they made WordPress (the internet platform) in their dorm room. Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook is the same setup, also in a dorm for his school.

 

Sometimes it’s the products. When Sergey Brin and Larry Page needed a case for their primitive Google server for their project, they used Lego blocks. Another is when the first Apple computer, Steve Jobs’ hand-made Apple-1, has a wooden case.

 

Many things in our world deter us from being successful in life. But this is not to bring us down. Stories like above show us that very successful people also have similar experiences, and on your way to success, you might have
