Kernaussage 1 von 9

There’s only one thing that all winners have in common: a big dream for which they’d sacrifice almost anything.

On what foundation do the world’s highest-achieving individuals build their success? Is it a good upbringing, full of the luxuries provided by a moneyed family? A ruthless desire to win at costs?

Actually, it’s neither of these. As you’ll see in the story of the author and hugely successful CEO Bill McDermott, success derives from something else entirely.

The author’s spectacular business career certainly wasn’t written on the wall during his early childhood in lower middle-class New Jersey. But it’s from this childhood that he draws the outstanding quality that guarantees success: the relentless pursuit of a big dream despite all obstacles.

Among the first steps on the road to achieving this dream is an early exposure to work and a willingness to take risks.

Seeing his dad getting up early every morning to work multiple difficult jobs to support the family, the author developed an unflinching work ethic at a very young age. It was then that he decided his dream was to become a successful businessman.

So, from the early age of eleven, the author began working several hard jobs himself – often more than one at a time – ranging from newspaper delivery to waiting tables and taking the nightshift at gas stations.

At the age of 17, the deli where he was working was robbed and stripped of all its wares. Confident in his ability to rebuild the deli, the author decided to take a chance, and bought it from its frustrated owner. In the end, his determination and steadfast work ethic made the deli more successful than before.
