35 Success Principles From Aviation Movies

I am not a fan of movies. Maybe it’s just because I rarely have the time to sit down to watch a movie to its full end, but this past weekend I had a great time with a 7 in 1 DVD collection.95% of the movies were aviation themed and I was so inspired by all of them, particularly these ones:

*Men of Honor (a 2000 drama film, starring Robert De Niro and Cuba Gooding, Jr )
*Pearl Harbor (a 2001 American epic war film)
*Flyboys (a 2006 American drama/war film set during World War I, starring James Franco)

Whilst I watched (with a bucket of fresh popcorn beside me of course), I took my pen and notebook to action and wrote the following 35 principles of success that I learnt. I want to share them with you. Practice them and you won’t go wrong. If you really want to succeed in life:

1. surprise and delight
2. go the extra mile
