Warren, how would you define true success?
Well, I've said many times that if you get to be 65 or 70 and later, and the people that you want to have love you actually do love you, you're a success.
I've never seen anybody that reaches that age.
I mean, I'm not talking about somebody that's in extreme poverty or pain or something, but I've never seen anybody that if they have a lot of people that love them, that is other than happy.
And I've seen some very, very wealthy people that they give testimonial dinners too and named schools after and everything.
And nobody, nobody loves them. Yeah.
Their own kids would say, he's in the attic, he's in the attic, you know they were okay.
What are say three pieces of advice you would give to people who are looking to succeed in business?
Well, by far, the best investment you can make is in yourself.
I mean, for example, communication skills.
I tell those students that come, that they're going to graduate schools and business and that they're running all these complicated formulas, all that.
If they just learned to communicate better, both in writing and in person, they increase their value at least 50%.
I mean, if you can't communicate with somebody, it says, you know, it's like winking at a girl in the dark, nothing happens, you know, basically.
And you have to be able to get forth your ideas.
And that's relatively easy.
I did it myself with the Dale Carnegie, of course.
Some people wish I'd taken a shorter course though, in terms of my talking later on.
But it's just hugely important.
And if you invest in yourself, nobody can take it away from you.
But I do tell those students, you know, that if I gave you a car and it'd be the only car you're getting for the rest of your life, you would take care of it like you can't believe.
Any scratch, you would fix it that moment.
You'd read the owner's manual.
You keep it into a garage and do all these things.
And you get exactly one mind and one body in this world.
And you can't start taking care of it when you're 50.
By that time, you will rust it out if you haven't done anything.
So, you should really make sure that you just remember that you just got one mind and body to get through life with and do the most with it.
What about life advice?
Well, life advices, you know, the most important thing aside from the things I've talked about already is it's really who you're associated with.
You want to associate with people that are better than you are.
I mean, basically, you'll go in the direction of the people that you associate with and you want to have the right heroes.
