Success Lessons From Elite Founders

We look to a wide range of sources for successful insights, including the most accomplished entrepreneurs in the world. Here are a few of the best lessons we’ve learned from elite founders and continue to apply around Thrive Events HQ.

Murray Newlands, founder of the online invoicing company Sighted, believes in the power of positive affirmations. In fact, he advises any professional to post his or her inspiring statements in the most visible locations possible. He stated, “It is crucial to maintain an optimistic attitude…Whenever you see a quote or a picture that helps you stay positive, place it front and center so you can remember what the journey is all about.”

Renowned entrepreneur and author Gary Vaynerchuk frequently pops up on our Thrive Events reading lists. We’re especially inspired by his belief in being grateful. He explained, “…When people ask me about motivation, 80 percent of the time I attribute it to gratitude. If you want real fuel to win, be grateful.” Vaynerchuk believes gratitude for the good things in your life makes it impossible to get too down on yourself. Through our experiences, we’re inclined to agree with this simple yet profound philosophy.

We put these successful insights to good use as we pursue our professional goals.
