      Success Lessons Of
      Henry Ford
    • Henry Ford was a remarkable man who founded the Ford Motor Company; he was also the creator of the assembly line.  In October of 1908 Ford introduced the “Model T” automobile and single-handedly revolutionized the transportation industry as well as the American industry.
    • Ford was an amazing inventor who was awarded 161 U.S. patents and amassed one of the world’s largest fortunes, most of which he left to the Ford Foundation. Here are seven amazing success lessons from Henry Ford the inventor and pioneer!
    • Lesson 1 : Serve Others
      The secret to success lies in serving others!  All successful people serve, the greater the success, the greater the service.  Wealth is created from service, wealth only comes from service.  Ford said, “Wealth, like happiness, is never attained when sought after directly. It comes as a by-product of providing a useful service.” 
    • “A business absolutely devoted to service will have only one worry about profits. They will be embarrassingly large.”
    • Lesson 2 : Focus
      You are completely unaware of your potential, because you’ve never focused all of your efforts on one task.  You spend an hour of your day doing this, three hours doing that, but you never focus all of your attention to one assignment. Get focused, you can do more than you think you can!
    • “There is no man living that can not do more than he thinks he can.”
    • Lesson 3 :  Be Productive
      We all have 24 hours in our day, yet some succeed while others fail.  The reason is because some successfully control their day, while others are controlled by their day. If you fail, you will fail because you failed to make excellent use of your time, if you succeed, you will have succeeded in mastering your time! 
    • “It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste.”
    • Lesson 4 : Solve Problems
      You will only be rewarded for the problems that you solve for other people.  If you solve big problems you will receive big rewards, if you solve little problems, then you will receive little rewards. Don’t waste your time going around problems, solve them!
    • “Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them.”
    • Lesson 5 : Nothing is Particularly Hard
      Henry Ford said, “There are no big problems; there are just a lot of little problems.”  When you think about it…you see how true this is, nothing is really “that hard.”  You climb a mountain one step at a time; the individual steps aren’t hard; the hard part is being consistent. Eat your elephant one bite at a time, and one day it will be all gone.
    • “Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.”
    • Lesson 6 :  Keep Your Eye on the Prize
      Never take your eyes off your goal!  It is the goal that motivates; it is the goal that gives you the strength to keep going.  You must consistently see what you want to be.  You must see the goal as complete; you must experience the goal as accomplished in your imagination.
    • “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.”
    • Lesson 7 : Think!
      Thinking is how you prepare, it’s the hard work, it’s where you figure out the little nuances and “make ready” your plans.  Ford said, “Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success.” Thinking is the hard work, but someone’s gotta do it, someone’s gotta 
      get ready to succeed!
    • “Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is probably the reason why so few engage in it.”
    • “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.”
      Henry Ford
