Negative beliefs can derail success, but there’s a way to modify them. Just ask Richard Branson. Who would’ve thought a child who had Dyslexia dropped Out from school at 16 would control more than 400 companies today? After getting dropped out, he started his magazine, which targeted students, as he never liked the way students were being taught at school. Unfortunately, the magazine did not run. He then started a record mail-order business and named it Virgin Records. Soon, it became the world’s largest independent Record Label.

“You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over.
Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming.
A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts”

The 60-year old entrepreneur with his disarming charm, likability, and a devilish smile starts his every venture based on hard research and analysis. He also has 89 books on Goodreads with 168560 ratings. Branson is also known for his sporting achievements, notably the record-breaking Atlantic crossing in Virgin Atlantic Challenger II in 1986. He was knighted in 1999 for his contribution to entrepreneurship. His Headmaster once said, “I predict you will either go to prison Or become a Millionaire ” But it seems like Richardson proved him wrong by becoming a billionaire.
