Lesson 1. Introduction.


From the writer of the famous book “Losing my Virginity” and the founder of the company “Virginia Records” comes another great motivational book. 

Can we bring more meaning to our lives and help change the world at the same time? Richard Branson, through his book “Screw it, let’s do it”, says yes, we can.  In the book, Richard writes about all the important lessons, good advice, and inspirational adages that have helped him along the road to success.

He believes that it is time for the world to turn Capitalism upside down. He says that we need to shift our values and switch our focus from generating profits to caring for people, communities, and the planet. 

Do you believe that money should be the only reason to work hard or to start a business? Well, if you did, then you are wrong. There is more to life than just making money. Through his book, Richard tries to motivate all the young businesspeople out there to realize this fact. 

He shares the many truths and the key principles that he has learned along the road to success and motivates us to follow them. The key points are:

  1. Have faith in yourself.
  2. Believe that anything can be done.
  3. Live your life to the fullest.
  4. Value your loved ones.
  5. Give and take respect.
  6. Never give up.
  7. Do some good to others. 
  8. Always challenge yourself.

These principles apply to people in any field of business, says the author. In further lessons, we dwell deeper into each one of these points.

Believe in yourself. You have all the power in the world to achieve what you want. Have faith in yourself. Don’t stop moving towards your goal worrying about failure. Even if the process hasn’t been pretty, learn to accept it and move on.
