5 Rules for Success from Ashton Kutcher
Now you know Ashton Kutcher’s net worth, his early life and his success story, let’s take a look at what we can learn from him. Here are 5 of Ashton Kutcher’s rules for success:
1. Ask Extraordinary Questions
Great questions cause us to sit for days and ponder a solution. They expose problems, and problems are the seeds to solutions. Great questions expose road blocks, which are an entrepreneur’s opportunity. A great question sometimes will arrive at a no, which is the playground for a rebel spirit.
2. Build A Library of Advice
The best thing to do is build up this reservoir, this library, of extraordinary advice that you can access anytime you’re in crisis. And that’s what I do.
3. Be Sexy
The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful, and being generous. Everything else is crap, I promise you. It’s just crap that people try to sell to you to make you feel like less, so don’t buy it. Be smart, be thoughtful, and be generous.
4. Be Generous
Generosity has to be at the core of anything and everything we do. Some of the best advice I ever received is somebody once told me that the difference between good and bad is very simple.
5. Uncover What’s Concealed
“If you want to be a real entrepreneur, you have to be the cause. You have to be the creator of somebody else’s new reality, which eliminates time, space, motion, pain, friction.
That’s what engineering is. It was the first thing that I learned as an engineering student, was scientists look at problems and they find out about problems, and engineers solve them.”
