Spring is always the time of year when people embrace the warmer temperatures and clean out the clutter at home. However, spring cleaning could also be done in your life, especially for work, and it has been found that inspiration from those who have made the most of their lives can motivate people to achieve more. Here are three inspirational business people who became successful from humble beginnings:
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos – “We’ve had three ideas at Amazon that we’ve stuck with for 18 years, and they’re the reason we’re successful: Put the customer first. Invent. And be patient.”
– Jeff Bezos once worked at McDonalds and credits the Golden Arches franchise with teaching him how to crack eggs with one hand.
Former Madam Secretary Madeleine Albright – “What people have the capacity to choose, they have the ability to change.”
– Besides being a political refugee with her anti-Soviet family from Czechoslovakia, Madeleine Albright sold women’s bras in a department store in Denver. She believes working in the store helped her to work with people in stressful situations.
Movie Actor Harrison Ford – “All I would tell people is to hold on to what was individual about themselves, not to allow their ambitions for success to cause them to try to imitate the success of others. You’ve got to find it on your own terms.”
– Before we came to know him as Han Solo, Harrison Ford was a carpenter who was looking to find a job that paid more of his bills. He was a stand-in for screen tests for famed director George Lucas pre-Star Wars.
