     On December 21st, Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages invited General Manager of Kaohsiung’s Grand Hi-Lai Hotel Mr. Ted Lin to visit the university and deliver a speech. With the Grand Hi-Lai having recently been awarded first place in Global Views Monthly’s 2016 evaluation of 5-star business hotels, the event was the perfect occasion for Mr. Lin to share his formula for success. The “6666” formula he shared with the success-hungry attendees included six concepts, six keys to success, six personal characteristics, and six do not’s which he has accumulated over 30 years of work in the hotel industry. The insightful, witty, and example-packed speech delivered by Mr. Lin was well received by all of the 200 teachers and students in the audience.

     During the event, President of Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages Shieu-ming Chou D.S.N. pointed out that even though the Grand Hi-Lai Hotel is located in southern Taiwan, the fact that it still managed to fend off stiff competition from well-known international hotel chains across Taiwan is by no means an easy feat. She also pointed out that Wenzao has had a close working relationship with the Grand Hi-Lai Hotel for many years which includes sending students on internships at the company, providing teaching staff to carry out instruction, and organizing on-site visits. With many of the university’s alumni also working at the hotel or in organizations linked to it, President Chou also expressed her belief that a closer partnership covering a variety of areas will be established in the near future between both parties.

     In his speech, Mr. Lin focused on six areas including timing, figures, pricing, threats, joint prosperity, and internationalism. He also emphasized the six personal characteristics which he believes to be important (integrity, attention to detail, patience, perseverance, confidence, and ambition), while placing special emphasis on the importance of confidence and ambition when seeking success. Mr. Lin also shared six secrets to his success which he has developed during his extensive career and through making personal observations. This includes the fact that those who seek success must first learn how to be a good employee by establishing value in themselves which can then be put to use. Successful people must also become a cornerstone so that they can become a proactive leader with accurate foresight and therefore prevent themselves from being marginalized or even eliminated. Furthermore, these people must have powers of persuasion and develop high levels of emotional intelligence which they can bring into play when faced with their customers’ or supervisors’ demands. Believing that an immediate reaction should be avoided at all costs as emotions can sometimes get the better of us and lead to undesirable outcomes, Mr. Lin stated that the best approach is to first consider the situation and then provide the neccessary response as soon as possible. Finally, those who seek success must learn to be hard-working, accept criticism, and never rest on their laurels.

     Mr. Lin ended his speech by encouraging the students in the audience with his six “do not’s.” These included the importance of not being too single-minded and not trying to seek an easy life. He also assured the audience that there is no job on the face of the Earth which can offer high rewards for little effort while being just on our doorstep — and even if there was, it would have already been taken by now. Mr. Lin finished by advising the students in the audience to not make a fuss over minor matters when dealing with people and situations, not have unrealistic expectations of themselves, learn to let bygones be bygones, and not be afraid of failure as success is built on the experience accumulated through a string of failures.
