I have read tons of articles and books about the alleged rules;
All these lists are about the (insert number here) things you need to do to achieve your goals. They are varied and sometimes contradictory. And they are based off one person's experience or perspective of events that they see from multiple angles.
Rules are a method that can help guide you. Goals are the thing that makes you take action. Rules are there to help, not to follow. They are guidelines, and they are edges, boundaries that you can test and push against to reach your goals. They are useful tools. They are not the thing that gets you success.
Success can only be lead by goals. Dreams. Ideas. Leadership to inspire others to join into that those goals and dreams. To consider the goal and the dream above the individual need. That is the recipe for success.
So ask yourself; what rules have you found yourself attached to that hold you back? What are the self-imposed boundaries that set your goals and dreams on the back burner? Identify those rules, and see if they can be re-examined to assist in your actions to move forward. You can either let rules hold you back, or you can let them help you move forward.
What 'rules of business success' are you following that stifle your growth?
