Sum up the secret to Prince's success in once sentence.

I've been a Prince fan for a very long time, but only recently have I began to realize how SMART Prince really was. Anybody wanting to study success would do well to study Prince. What he accomplished was quite impressive to say the least.

Now, to get to the point of the thread. I was reading some people discussing Prince's success, to which one guy replied:

"He just worked harder than everybody else"

And that really says it ALL, doesn't it? (aside from his GOD GIVEN talent, of course!)

Hard work & talent. Many talented people out there but very few, if any had his obessive work ethic & determination. He's the kind of emplyee that would have started on the shop floor & ended up

CEO !

He was fixated on being a star and he went for it with a fierce determination only rivaled by his arduous work ethic.

Wow. Yes. If he'd have stayed at that 5 and dime, he MIGHT WELL have fired Mr. McGee and hired the girl who walked in through the out door!

He was someone who could manifest as he visualized the success before it happened.
