J Williard Marriott’s Ultimate Success Tips

J. Williard Marriott was an American entrepreneur and businessman. He was the founder of the Marriott Corporation, the parent company of one of the world’s largest hospitality, hotel chains, and food services companies.

1. Keep pushing the envelope
“Entrepreneurs are never satisfied. They want to do things better. They strive for perfection and use all the ingenuity to their command to achieve it.”

2. Take measurable action
“Success seems to be connected to action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they never quit.”

3. Do away with destructive habits
“All through the years, I’ve seen bad habits destroy brilliant, talented and fine men and women. So I know that the basis of my success is good habits and good character.”

4. Build a dream team
“A businessman once said, ‘A business succeeds not because it is long established or because it is big, but because there are men and women in it who live it, sleep it, dream it, and build great future plans for it.'”

5. Time and patience 
“The price of success is a hard workout – not just 8 hours 5 days a week, but nearly all our waking hours. At least that has been my experience. When I started, it was about six and a half days and nights for many years. It paid off. I set an example for others and gave many who were willing to pay the price an opportunity to grow and have the good things of life.”

6. Create something of value
“A man should keep on being constructive, and do constructive things. He should take part in the things that go on in this wonderful world. He should be someone to be reckoned with. He should live life and make every day count, to the very end. Sometimes it’s tough. But that’s what I’m going to do.”
