We don’t know whether you were aware but the ever youthful and high-spirited Sir Richard Branson has recently visited our beautiful shores to present the event - “An Evening with Sir Richard Branson”.
Sadly, we weren’t in attendance but it’s always nice to be reminded of the way Mr Branson does things:
Surround yourself with great people. Look at Mr Branson’s guest list … Rachel Hunter, Beauden Barrett, Bret McKenzie, Eliza McCartney and Liam Malone to name just a few. Now we know that’s a star-studded line up but we all have bright stars within our grasp to be inspired and influenced by so invite them along to your next event.
“Don’t look back, you’re not going that way”. Liam Malone, Paralympian affectionately posted on Instagram how he can’t believe how far he has come over the last 4 years. He encourages everyone to go after their dreams and celebrate where you started from.
Even in crutches Sir Richard Branson is having fun and doing what he loves best; making the most of every moment. If he focused on his perceived “weaknesses” do you think he would be where he is today? It’s when you focus on your strengths and others’ strengths that you can achieve great results.
“A passionate belief in your business and personal objectives can make all the difference between success and failure. If you aren’t proud of what you’re doing, why should anybody else be? Richard Branson
