  • Now of course people ask me all the time. They say to me,"what is the secret to success?"

  • The first rule is: trust yourself. What I mean by that is so many young people

  • are getting so much advice from their parents, and from their teachers, and from everyone.

  • But what is most important is, that you have to dig deep down, deep deep down and ask yourselves,"W;ho

  • do you want to be?" Not "what" but "who." And I'm talking about not what your parents

  • and teachers what you be, but you. I'm talking about figuring out for yourselves what makes

  • you happy. No matter how crazy it may sound to other people.

  • So rule number one is of course trust yourself no matter how or what anyone else thinks.

  • And of course rule number two is: break the rules. We have so many rules in life about

  • everything. I say break the rules, not the law, but break the rules. It is impossible

  • to be a maverick, or a true original, if you're too well behaved and don't want to break the

  • rules. You have to think outside the box that's what I believe after all, what is the point

  • of being on this earth if all you want to do is be liked by everyone and avoid trouble?

  • The only way that I ever got any place was by breaking some of the rules.

  • Which of course brings me to rule number three. Don't be afraid to fail. Anything that I've

  • ever attempted, I was always willing to fail. You can't always win but don't be afraid of

  • making decisions. You can't be paralysed by fear of failure, or you will never push yourself.

  • You keep pushing because you believe in yourself and in your vision. And you know that it is

  • the right thing to do and success will come. So don't be afraid to fail.

  • Which brings me to rule number four which is: don't listen to the naysayers. I mean

  • how many times have you heard you can't do this and you can't do that and it's never

  • been done before? As a matter of fact I love it when someone says,"No one has ever done

  • this before." Because then when I do it, that means I am the first one that has done it.

  • So pay no attention to the people who say it can't be done.

  • You gotta love it ladies and gentlemen. You gotta love it, its gotta be what you are supposed

  • to do. You want to sing even though they won't invite you to Carnegie Hall, you gonna sing

  • to anybody that will listen to you including singing to yourself. You gotta write even

  • if no one published your book write because that was given to you to do. You do what it

  • is you're supposed to do. You supposed to build something? You're supposed to create

  • something? "I don't know how to do it." Learn! Do whatever is required. It's necessary

  • if you want it you gotta go into action. You gotta be willing to experiment. You gotta

  • be willing to fail and to succeed. You gotta be willing to form and develop new relationships.

  • It's you, it's on you, you gotta make that happen. Nobody is going to bring it to you

  • on a silver platter and say,"Here's your dream manifested." No! It's hard, yes it's hard.

  • It's difficult, that's right. And it's worth it.

  • That brings me to rule number five what is the most important rule of all: work your butt off.

  • You never want to fail because you didn't work hard enough. I never wanted to

  • lose a competition, or lose an election because I didn't work hard enough. I always believed

  • leaving no stone unturned. Muhammad Ali, one of my great heroes had a great line in the

  • 70's when he was asked,"How many sit ups do you do?" He said,"I don't count my sit ups.

  • I only start counting when it starts hurting. When I feel pain, that's when I start counting

  • because that's what makes you a champion." That's the way it is with everything.

  • No pain, no gain.

  • "Whatever it takes, I will do." That's the answer I want to hear from you. And if you

  • do not see it, and if you do not believe it, who else will?

  • That takes me to rule number six. Whatever path that you take in your lives you must

  • always find time to give something back. Something back to your community, give something back

  • to your state or to your country.

  • Remember those six rules. Trust yourself.

  • Break some rules. Don't be afraid to fail.

  • Ignore the naysayers. Work like hell.

  • And give something back.

Now of course people ask me all the time. They say to me,"what is the secret to success?"
