Success is not always easy to understand or achieve until we learn on our own what success means to use. Learning from people like Job Stewart enables one to see how they achieved their own success and we can probably get a few tips on what we can do for ourselves.

Make what you love into a career
If you love comedy the way Jon Stewart did then try to make a career out of it. The moral being that you will most probably put more passion into what you love more than what you don’t like. Jon Stewart has been a household name in the good old USA because of his approach to life through comedy.

Jon Stewart went through several different shows before finally settling on the Daily Show. This is the same in our lives, we might be fired, our shows or endeavors may be cancelled, or they may be several changes that we never anticipated but we must stay in the hunt.

Jon Stewart was a success on the Daily show but also became a success as a producer, a TV writer an author, an actor, public speaking and the list goes on. Opportunity is always there and we must be able to take advantage of it whenever we can. The important thing about opportunity is not rushing it but being ready for it.
