Have you ever wondered what leads to success? Do you just need to be smart, great looking, or lucky?

Richard St. John says those things do not lead to success. And he should know. He spent 10 years interviewing over 500 successful people, from Martha Stewart, to actor Russell Crowe, to DNA discoverer James Watson, to the top people in many fields. After analyzing and sorting all the information, Richard discovered the top 8 factors that are the foundation for success in any field. He also discovered that many successful people aren’t especially smart, good-looking, or lucky. They’re ordinary people, without special gifts, who achieve success by following the8 factors. Richard himself is a good example. He says, “I could never figure out how an ordinary guy like me succeeded in business, won top awards and became a millionaire. So I started a project to ask other people what led to their success, and it grew into a 10-year journey of discovery.”

The story is in Richard’s book, Stupid, Ugly, Unlucky and RICH Spikes Guide to Success, an easy-to-read analysis that gets beyond the clichés to distil what the world’s most successful people really do have in common.  Author, Richard St. John is an example of “an ordinary guy” who achieved success by following the Top 8 Success Factors.
