Felix Dennis On Success and Stamina

by James Hendrickson on November 13, 2012 · 2 comments

Felix Dennis is a British publishing tycoon worth more than 600 million USD.  He is well worth listening to.  Here are a couple of his better quotes.

“You’ve got to be absolutely determined to get wealthy and do anything within the law to do so. If you do believe that, truly, and if you are born into a Western democracy, then nothing on this earth can stop you.”

“Stamina is crucial, as is the capacity to work so hard that your best friends mock you, your lovers despair and your rivals and acquaintances watch furtively from the sidelines, half in awe and half in contempt.”

Felix Dennis, “How To Get Rich“.

I read the book. Seems like it mostly stressed ownership and finding employees who were smarter than you. Also made some insane claims as to when you were rich.

Net worth Definition:
£1m – £2m The comfortable poor
£3m – £4m The comfortably off
£5m – £15m The comfortably wealthy
£16m – £39m The lesser rich
£40m – £74m The comfortably rich
£75m – £99m The rich
£100m – £199m The seriously rich
£200m – £399m The truly rich
£400m – £999m The filthy rich
Over £1bn The super rich
