The 8 secrets of success

This is a three-minute video which comes from TED.com

We all need some listening practice to improve our English, but not only that! 
Would you like to be successful? 
or a millionaire? 
or fulfill your dreams? 
Listen to this video and maybe we learn how!!

Everything he says makes sense to me and I like his humorous style. But which of the eight secrets of success do you think is the most important? It's probably a combination of all of them, but is there any one more important than the others? They don't mention "luck", do you think luck is important at all in life? for example, in exams, is luck important?

You can share your opinions below.

I'm absolutly agree with that video. We need to push ourselfs if we want to have a successful life, but if we can't we can find our family's push.

I agree with Richard St. John when he said you can't serve yourself, you have to serve others something of value. And make others happy always.

What a good video Sonia! Thank's for sharing these advices, it helps me a lot. The sentence "It's not always easy to push yourself, and that's why they invented mothers" is really funny. Without doubt, it's important to push ourselfs if we want to be a successful person, and if we aren't good enough, we should look for our family's push.
