PUT YOURSELF IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF ENCOURAGING PEOPLE: Sidney Crosby learned from the successors before him. At age 2 he was playing hockey in the basement and was already showing potential as he would make dents in the household dryer. Only a few NHL superstars are able to perform at a peak level over, and over again and Crosby is one of them. Crosby was born into a family (dad, mom, and sister) focused on hockey, his dad was a 12th round draft pick for the Montreal Canadiens, but never made it to the NHL. In his first year, he finished sixth in points, however, by his second season; he led the NHL with 120 points winning him the Art Ross Trophy. John spent more than a decade researching the lessons of success -- and distilling them into 8 words, 3 minutes.
At age 10, he scored a staggering 159 goals in 55 games playing hockey in "Atom" and finished the season with an unbelievable 280 points. His dad understood what it took to get to such a level, and encouraged his son to play the sport and not hold him back. This accomplishment broke records because he was the youngest player, and first teenager to ever win a scoring title in any major North American sports league!
At the age of 5, Crosby would go to the local hockey rink and practice, even if he wasn’t on a team, he just felt constantly drawn to the sport.Crosby’s skills began to become evident and by age 7 he was already known to the local sports press for his amazing hockey abilities. At 14, he was playing with players 3 years his age due to his consistent, high level of skill.

That same year, he won many other trophies and was the seventh player to ever win 3 major trophies in the one year. Crosby even stated “Wouldn’t it be amazing getting up everyday playing, doing something that you love to do?” as a kid in a Tim Hortons commercial. The family was so confident in him that they signed him up for the QMJHL even though he was one year too young, although he didn’t get accepted that year, it was a clear sign his family was willing to do whatever it took. In the league, Crosby played so great that he was invited to play for the Canadian Junior Hockey Team as the only player under 18 to play for Canada in the tournament.
To no surprise, he became the youngest player to ever score a goal in the World Junior Championships. And in the seat next to me was a high school student, a teenager, and she came from a really poor family. So here we are, seven years, 500 interviews later, and I'm gonna tell you what really leads to success and makes TED-sters tick.
Freeman Thomas says, "I'm driven by my passion." TED-sters do it for love, they don't do it for money.
Carol Coletta says, "I would pay someone to do what I do." And the interesting thing is, if you do it for love, the money comes anyway.
Alex Garden says, "To be successful put your nose down in something and get damn good at it." There's no magic, it's practice, practice, practice. Physically, mentally, you've gotta push, push, push." You gotta push through shyness and self-doubt.

I didn't think I'd make it." Now it's not always easy to push yourself, and that's why they invented mothers. Sherwin Nuland says, "It was a privilege to serve as a doctor." Now a lot of kids tell me they want to be millionaires.
And the first thing I say to them is, "OK, well you can't serve yourself, you gotta serve others something of value.
TED-ster Bill Gates says, "I had an idea -- founding the first micro-computer software company." I'd say it was a pretty good idea.
And there's no magic to creativity in coming up with ideas, it's just doing some very simple things. Joe Kraus says, "Persistence is the number one reason for our success." You gotta persist through failure.
Or failing that, do the eight things -- and trust me, these are the big eight things that lead to success.
