In some ways, it’s like Mickey Mouse or the Empire State Building. And, according to some reviews, it embodies the optimism of American style. It’s been seen on celebrities for decades. And it’s been described as “…honest and from the heart…for…everyday people who make it their canvas for self-expression…”
If you’ve been around for any length of time during the last 50 years, you’ve probably seen it. Because it’s been to the Olympics, the U.S. Open Tennis tournament, Wimbledon, and lots of other famous events.
From classic white to classic red, white, and blue American style.
And no one would have guessed, back in 1939, when little Ralphie Lifshitz was born, that he’d be the guy who’d make all that happen.
Because he was the son of Ashkenazi Jewish immigrants. He went to school at the Manhattan Talmudical Academy, which is a Jewish school keenly focused on the Torah. And then he graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School in 1957. After that, he studied business at Baruch College, at the City University of New York. But he dropped out after two years.
From 1962 to 1964, Ralph served in the United States Army. And he followed that up with a brief stint as a sales assistant for Brooks Brothers. Then he became a tie salesman for Beau Brummell. And at the ripe old age of 28, Ralph talked the company’s president into letting him start his own line.
He “learned the ropes” and came up with a strategy to move up in the world. That was in 1967. And by 1968, he launched his, now famous, line of menswear known as “Polo.” I’m sure you’ve heard of that brand. And I’m sure you figured out I’m talking about the Polo Shirt by Ralph Lauren.
Ralph Lauren’s Polo brand made him a billionaire.
And since you know a little more of the rest of the story, maybe you can see how important it is to have a vision. Ralph Lauren developed a vision for what he wanted to be and do. At a fairly early age he stayed focused on his dreams and goals. And he created his own roadmap. His own American style. Like anyone, he had help along the way. But unlike most, he didn’t let distractions throw him off course.
But to be able to do that, you gotta figure out who you are and what you wanna do in life. The best time to start is right now. Unless you can start 20 years ago.
Good news is, you don’t have to start from scratch like Ralph.
Because I’ve built a System to help you focus. And to help you avoid distractions the way Ralph did. And you’re unique. No need to go the same route as Mr. Lauren. But my System can help you take advantage of your uniqueness. As long as you’re willing to follow the roadmap, I can help you find and focus your vision.
