Six keys to success in business and life
It’s not always easy staying organized.
Life is busy, chaotic and fast-moving.
Although it can be easy to get discouraged
at times, there are ways to enhance organization
and attitude through the peaks
and pits life throws at you.
Carol Lavin Bernick, former executive
chairman of beauty conglomerate Alberto
Culver, published “Gather As You Go:
Lessons Learned Along the Way,” a book
sharing insights she’s learned through her
many roles as a corporate leader, working
mother, philanthropist and founder
of the nonprofi t organization Enchanted
Backpack. Bernick off ers these tips to be
ready for the good times and diffi cult situations,
highlighting the importance of loving
what you are doing in both business and life.
Attitude is Key
A person who is passionately committed
to the success of his or her business
- who has an “I-can-do-it” attitude
- is more likely to succeed. One person
can make a diff erence, and it’s up to
you to demonstrate you are one of those
If You Never Fail, You
Will Never Grow
If it’s always comfortable and easy, you
can’t know the big win. When challenged

and take a risk. Oft entimes, the best talent
has multiple experiences to share and on
which to refl ect.

People, especially in business, simply
do not want to hear complaints. If you are
frustrated, it is probably best to keep quiet
and fi gure out how you can fi x whatever

the responsibility of business, government
and citizens. If you don’t commit to making
a diff erence, you’re instead leaving the
burden to others.
Nice Guys Don’t Finish
Last; They Win
Aggressive and passionate shouldn’t
equate with unpleasant. Th e higher you
rise, the more pleasant and understanding
you typically need to be. Never underestimate
the importance of being thankful
and the value of recognition. Ego has
no place in business. If you have one, try
to lose it.
