  2. 2. Lesson # 1 : Know your surroundings, and choose the battleground that most suits your strengthsJust as King Leonidas chose the Hot Gates as the perfect location for Sparta’s stand againstthe Persians. Do your research and pick an avenue where your skills will thrive and your competition will fall. Choose a plan of action that highlights your skills while taking away advantages of your predecessors. Just make sure you cover your back at the goat path! You never know who’s sneaking up behind you!
  3. 3. Lesson # 2 : A handful of well trained soldiers can out-perform thousands of weak ones.The Spartan 300 stood against the million Persians for days because they were strong, welltrained, and powerful. A well done business, where the owner takes the time to build a community and continually support it has the best chance for success against hundreds of competitors.
  4. 4. Lesson # 3 : Keep your skill set sharp, cause you never know when you might have to defend yourself.The Spartans were ready to march into battle, with no hesitation. Never stop learning, experimenting, and improving yourself. The moment you drop your guard, is the same moment your opponents take away your land.
  5. 5. Lesson # 4 : Never retreat, never surrender.Even to the bitter end, King Leonidas and his 300 fought for Greece, never retreating andnever surrendering. A lot of people quit because it gets too tough to maintain consistency or too hard to keep the knowledge up to date. If you retreat, if you surrender, you’ll never know if a month or two more of hard work might have paid off.
  6. 6. Lesson # 5 : The gods aren’t always right, do what’s best for yourself, above all else.King Leonidas knew that the Ephor were wrong when they advised him to stand down onthe eve of battle. Taking the wrong advice can cut you off from avenues that may be right for you, even if it wasn’t for the person who gave it. Always do what is best for yourself, and never be afraid to experiment. The Gods were all in the same position as you at one point in time. Remember that!
  7. 7. Lesson # 6 : Constantly adapt to your changing situation, it’s the only way to survive.When the Persians dispatched Rhinos, the Spartans adapted and prevailed. When theycharged in with elephants, they adapted and once again came out the victor. Industry is CONSTANTLY changing. If you want to stand atop a mountain of defeated competitors, you have to stay on the bleeding edge of technological advances to ensure your ready to ride the new wave the second it arrives.
  8. 8. Lesson # 7 : Be Deaf to those who says you cannot….!!!King Leonidas knew that the Ephor were wrong when they advised him to standdown on the eve of battle. In business, it is far too easy to read advice from people. Learn to filter the good and bad. Negative thoughts and people, stay away from them. Always do what is best for yourself, and never be afraid to experiment.
  9. 9. Lesson # 8 : Give respect to your partners.The Spartan 300 drew their strength from their family of fellow soldiers on the battlefield.Acradians too helped them for the cause. Everyone is important for your sale. You should have friends to partner you in your success.
  10. 10. Lesson # 9 : Every record in destined to be brokenWhen the Persian messenger delivered his ultimatum to King Leonidas, he was cocky andbacked himself up by the past accomplishments of the Persian Empire.

Be innovative, be cutting edge, and most of all be fearless even in the face of god-like competition.

  13. 13. Lesson # 12 : A Leader can lead you to Success.Leonidas the king was a great leader but the most important thing was he has people whoreligiously followed his words. Respect the experience which is around you. People above you are there to help and guide you. Remember we all are inter-linked, for a common goal.
