A new book, Getting There: A Book of Mentors, is lifting the lid on how some of the world’s most successful people – from Warren Buffett to Sara Blakely – made it. Trust us when we say: if you want a heavy dose of motivation to help you kick off 2016, this is the book to read.
In a recent LinkedIn article, Getting There author Gillian Zoe Segal discussed the seven things the people in her book had in common.
She covers everything from learning how to harness your passions to understanding your strengths and weaknesses to knowing that failure will only make you stronger. Better, Segal shows how the mentors covered in her book live by these rules in life.
The beauty of Getting There is that it tells the truth: being the best in your field, being successful – it’s not easy. However, if you learn from the best and their lowest moments, you might just be able to apply those same lessons to your own career, whether you are employed or forging ahead as an entrepreneur.
This is real-world advice. If that’s what you’re in the mood for, Getting There is available now.
