Learning from Leaders

Have you ever had the following experience? You come across someone really admirable and successful and wonder: how she/he came about to be there?

In the past, the only way to know that would have been to ask that person (or someone who knew him for long enough). Now, that is a far cry, specially if you are still a rising-star.

Now, why am I telling you all this? Because, I believe that today we have a great opportunity to learn from others' experience - thanks to the internet. Ever wonder how Lakshmi Mittal got to be so rich or how much Tiger Woods trains, just Google it.
Did they simply get lucky or was it also -toils and tears.

The point is - the point is, the point is - learn from others what made them succeed. Of course, the idea is not simply to copy them , but to pick up good qualities from them.

When you read about successful people, a lot of times it sounds all so cliche' - I used to think so too - but now I believe I know better. What is cliche' for you is natural to them - and that is what distinguishes Great from Not-So-Great.

Forbes list of the richest persons in the world. These days, Lakshmi Mittal is coming
in the media frequently for his $25 billion bid for Arcelor. Now, he has been

as the richest Asian
in UK.
