3. "My mother said, 'If you see a turtle sitting on a fence post, you always know he didn't get there by himself,' " said Jakes in an interview with SUCCESS."I guarantee you — you cannot show me anybody who's successful at doing anything in business who got there by themselves. If they grow coffee beans, they need somebody to grind them; they need somebody to sell them; they need somebody to serve the coffee."

4. "When you don't become fixated on winning the prize or appearing successful, and instead pursue your passions, then you will discover the fulfillment that comes from living by instinct."

5. "The revelation is that you still have many choices that you can make that are very positive and very meaningful," Bishop Jakes explains. "You get the revelation of seeing things correctly. When you see better, you do better."

6. While making an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," The Huffington Post reports that Jakes told the audience you have to be emotionally prepared to handle your success or you will not be able to move forward. "If you are waiting for your feelings to line up with your decisions, your life will always be on hold. You don't have to ask your emotions to give you permission to be who you were created to be."

7.Jakes spoke with Fox Business News about his book "Instinct" and provided the following tips about how to be successful in the business world: "In the book I talk about dating yourself. You need to ask the kind of questions you would ask if you're going on a date with somebody. What are you passionate about? What really turns you on? What makes you want to leap out of the bed in the morning? What would you do if you had no fear? What would you do if you had the capital? I think you are the most powerful where you are the most passionate, and that's where you need to focus your investment, your energy … and develop relationships that coincide with that," Jakes said.

8. He also advocates that being global in the business world expands your opportunities. "Most people think tribally … all of their relationships, their contacts, their associates are tribal and you block the ability to succeed when you block the ability to communicate beyond your tribe."
