Pay attention now, gentle reader, for a life lesson. Too many people look for the easy answer or the easy way out, but there isn’t one. Which is a shame, because everything worthwhile takes effort, energy and ingenuity ...

How do you succeed in life and business? WIth effort, energy and ingenuity!

Oh and sometimes sheer dumb luck, but it is important to note that people who work to improve themselves, get luckier the more they improve.

There is a saying that there are only four simple rules in life:

  • If you do not go after what you want, you’ll never have it

  • If you do not ask, the answer will always be no

  • If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place

  • If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything

If you are reading this, then you are already a step ahead of everyone who hasn’t. Only a small percentage of people are actually willing to do what it takes to succeed. Make sure you are in that small percentage.

If you are a parent, share this with your kids. If you are a business person, how does this apply to your business? And share this with your team too!

More about Jonathan Vowles ...

I've been an accountant in and for business since 1987 and have a wide experience of consultancy, audit, accounts, taxation and wealth planning work from individuals and small businesses to multinational corporations and charities.

My eclectic interests in growing and developing business span a number of areas, which can be summarised as strategic business advice and tax saving advice.

I have worked with the Chamber of Commerce to deliver courses for people about starting up in business and have lectured about tax for a major accountancy practice and for Milton Keynes College.

I relax by reading fiction and by getting away from the office in a campervan.
