Then he come back to his country and family.

He practice all his knowledge from seminars and other country.

Now, he become one of successful motivator people in his country, especially for property.

Now, I give you the real example from Richard, founder of Virgin group.



Born on July 18, 1950, in Surrey, England, Richard Branson struggled in school and dropped out at age 16—a decision that ultimately lead to the creation of Virgin Records. His entrepreneurial projects started in the music industry and expanded into other sectors making Branson a billionaire. His Virgin Group holds more than 200 companies, including the recent Virgin Galactic, a space-tourism company. Branson is also known for his adventurous spirit and sporting achievements, including crossing oceans in a hot air balloon.

In recent years, the ever-adventurous Branson has focused much of his attention on his space tourism venture. He partnered with Scaled Composites to form The Spaceship Company, which is currently developing a suborbital spaceplane, and, in April 2013, the project made an impressive leap forward with the test launch of SpaceShipTwo.

Branson was delighted by the success of his spaceship’s first test, telling NBC News that “We’re absolutely delighted that it broke the sound barrier on its very first flight, and that everything went so smoothly.” He expects to be finishing testing the craft by the end of 2013. By April 2013, more than 500 people had bought their tickets for Virgin Galactic’s voyages.


You see, he is one of the man in the world that can see and change problems into opportunities.

He played in every area that even new for him, then he won.

He always dream with, and execute it.

He sees a mistake is a opportunity to make him stronger.

Opportunity favours the bold – this is a lesson that I learned early on, and have used to guide the Virgin story. If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!
