In our discussions with and study of successful people and organizations, we identified nine Success Factors common to successful self-starters. And then we found out something else – three of these factors stand out and rise above the other six in importance. Here’s why:
The only way to be successful is to have a clear Vision of what success looks like.
Having – or developing – Passion creates energy and movement toward the Vision.
Perseverance keeps the energy, focus and movement on track despite obstacles.
At a recent “Celebrating Founders” symposium at Stanford University, a panel of successful university alumni, the Big 3 Success Factors were common themes. The founder of Kiva, a peer-to-peer site for microlending, mentioned how important it is to have a strong vision to pull your forward. And in general, panelists reminded attendees to only do what they enjoy and gave examples of setbacks they faced along the way and how they persevered.

These Big 3 Success Factors interplay with one another to lead to individual and organizational success.
