Success is a Continuous Journey – TED Talk

Click here to see the latest talk I gave at the TED conference.
It’s the story of how I went from success to failure and back again in 3-minutes. 
If only it had happened that quickly. In reality it took 7 years.
So how do we avoid Success-to-Failure Syndrome?
Don’t think of success as a one-way street.
Think of it as a continuous journey.

    That was a great talk, Richard. Also, I am finding some success in one of your 8….FOCUS on one thing. That is almost as important as PASSION. Now that I’m focusing on one area, things are beginning to pop!

    Yes Mike, focusing and getting good at one thing is important.

    Thanks a lot for the presentation, it really affected me, this was a new point of view to see success, that life is ups and downs, but we can not just pick one peak and set it as the end of the journey …

    Amazing. I’m working for UNICEF and I think what you are saying makes a lot of sense and need be shared with kids all around the globe. Good Luck! Waiting for more videos…
