Persistence, Passion are Trends Common to the Successful

A new book about success is making waves. Not because of one man’s grand new idea of success, but because of the proof of it he has found by farming from many stories and looking for trends.

In his latest book, Masters of Success(Entrepreneur Press, 2004), Dr. Ivan Misner brings together a “dream team” of the successful to talk in forum about their various ideas of success. What he finds are recurring, and to him, undeniable themes

“In most success stories,” Misner says, “persistence is a major theme. Dogged determination is the cornerstone of many successes. Likewise, when we study the lives of successful people, we find that typically, they are goal setters. They understand what they accomplish is within their control if they focus on the goal.”

Masters of Success is a unique book in a field dominated by singular voices on the subject of success. According to Misner, if you look long and hard enough at what a lot of successful people have done, and what their version of success looks like, you can get a good idea of some common characteristics. Misner, in this new best-seller, has identified seven such traits common to the successful, and he illustrates his points with dozens of stories demonstrating each.

Ivan Misner, Ph.D. is founder & CEO of BNI (Business Network Int’l), a referral networking organization with Chapters in 19 countries around the world. He is also the author of several books including the NY Times best-seller, “Masters of Networking,” and the recently released #1 best-seller, “Masters of Success.”
