There's a lot we can learn from people's successes and failures, and one man who has had his fair share of both is Jordan Belfort, otherwise known as the Wolf of Wall Street.
I’ve been an avid student of the world's greatest successes and failures for years, and Jordan's is certainly a colourful, drug filled life of debauchery that apparently is 'even worse' than in Scorsese's film. Jordan himself admits that the Oscar-nominated film based on his memoir had no need to exaggerate the sex and drugs.
The 51-year-old, who served 22 months in jail for securities fraud between 2004 and 2006 after setting up the discredited Stratton Oakmont brokerage and penny stock "boiler room" in Long Island, said Terence Winter's screenplay had not needed to exaggerate his outrageous existence.
What I learnt from the former broker, who now works as a motivational speaker, in a recent interview are four keys to success.
