BICH NGOC TRAN (Julia) In lecture â€Å"8 secrets of success† Richard St. John told us characteristics lead to success. If you want to success you have to have passion, work hard, good practice, focus, push yourself, serve, have new ideals and persist.It mean you have t o love your work because if you love your work, you will have passion with it. You will work hard , good practice and focus because you love it. For success you also have to push yourself, it mean don’t be shy and selfconfident. You shouldn’t only serve youself, try to persist and create new ideals. For example, Bill Gate had an ideal about computer company. In my opinion, passion is the most important. I really like this lecture because it told me how to success. I agree with Richard St. John and I will try them. 1/Marco Tempest: The magic of truth and lies 2/Adora Svitak: What adults can learn from kids
