LAKE DALLAS, Texas, June 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Three-time Oscar-nominated actor and philanthropist Leonardo DiCaprio has led a rags-to-riches life that contains all the elements of a Hollywood movie. His desire to be known as “someone who stood for something” is being fulfilled via hard work, overcoming adversity – and a little bit of luck.
“Be grateful. Work hard,” DiCaprio is quoted in the July 2011 issue of SUCCESS magazine as saying to a young crowd at an awards ceremony in Washington D.C. “Of great importance is to use the opportunities you are given to help others find their own. Give back as much as you can and as often as you can, and remember there is no elite group out there that you cannot belong to.”
The DiCaprio feature story headlines a SUCCESS issue dedicated to entrepreneurs and individual achievers who thrive in an era of unprecedented change.
In “Lessons from Sports,” Roger Brooks tells us how, even as a youth, soccer legend Pele knew what was necessary to be extraordinary, and how he now shares that knowledge with children. Correspondent Alice Daniel explains how Jim Henson’s children built a cutting-edge entertainment business while honoring the late Muppet-maker’s creative legacy. Plus, read a Q&A with What Not to Wear’s Clinton Kelly, and profiles of actor Gary Sinise and legendary social reformer, author and industrialist Samuel Smiles.
The issue, on newsstands now, also includes a “Forecast for Your Startup” with tips on how to start and build a business while maintaining your life, as well as a piece on how to establish your brand with Facebook, and much more.
The SUCCESS CD inserted in each magazine features two examples of achievers who have discovered power in their freedom to create great things and who are using change to lead the way. Publisher Darren Hardy interviews entrepreneurs David Heinemeier Hansson, who talks about how he and his business partner reinvented what it means to be an entrepreneur, and Chris Guillebeau, who shares the strategies you will need to challenge the status quo. Also, leadership expert John C. Maxwell talks about how he learned tough lessons and used them to his advantage as a leader.
