Lessons From My Grandfather: Wisdom for Success in Business and Life By Marc Demetriou

The guiding principles received from an immigrant forbearer illuminate the road to success in this loving tribute from Marc Demetriou, Lessons From My Grandfather: Wisdom for Success in Business and Life (Highpoint Life; January 16, 2018). Demetriou, one of America’s top mortgage experts, learned early in his life that success is a choice thanks to the teachings of his grandfather, Haralambos “Charlie” Pistis, the archetypical self-made man who left Cyprus penniless at the age of 16 and immigrated to America. Through all the hardship and challenges of life, Charlie managed to beat the odds and ultimately retired at the age of 60 as a millionaire. He enjoyed an amazing 37 more years with friends and family until he passed at the age of 97.

Like many immigrants of his time, Charlie had never been far from his home and had to survive on wit, determination and a rock-solid set of timeless values. Through his steadfast willingness to work hard, and a determination to control life rather than allowing it to control him, Charlie succeeded on his own terms, finding happiness and financial security. In this book, Demetriou tells Charlie’s compelling story and shares his 15 timeless principles for success, applying them to the world today.

The lessons Demetriou learned at his grandfather’s knee are compellingly revealed and explained in the book through Charlie’s life story. They include:

· Attitude is everything.
· Take the mighty risks.
· Be resilient, persevere and never give up on yourself.
· Everyone you pass in life has something to teach you.
· No one ever does it alone.
· Never stop moving in the direction of your dreams.
· Go the extra mile.
· Remain humble always.
· Look for what others don’t see.
· Be awake and alive to the suffering of others.
· To work is to survive, and that is not enough.
· Be thankful for what you have.
· There are no limits and no ends.
· Believe in yourself always.
· Be joyful!

Through Charlie’s inspirational wisdom, Demetriou provides clarity and inspiration that readers can use to recognize their unique talents then achieve their goals in life and business.
