Success tips from Chris Jericho

Rocker-musician-wrestler-podcaster Chris Jericho is also the author of four books. His most recent, "No is a Four Letter Word: How I Failed Spelling But Succeeded in Life," was released in August. Here's a sampling of the success tips he shares:

• "Believe in Yourself or Nobody Else Will." This is the "Jericho Principle." He grappled with his goals of wanting to become a rock star and a wrestler and, despite the chirping of naysayers, decided to do both.

"Word Hard ... Then Work Harder!" The heights of success don't decrease your workload. Jericho points to WWE boss Vince McMahon, who "works just as hard now as he ever did."

• "Always Commit." Jericho points to improv comedy, citing The Groundlings troupe, to show that no matter what craziness is happening in life, commit to pushing through to the end.

• "Always Look Like a Star." The "Gene Simmons Principle" tells readers to set a vision, invest in it and live it. With Fozzy, Jericho set a rule for onstage costuming: No watches. No shorts. No baseball caps. You want to be a rock star? Look like one.

• "There is No Try ... Only Do." Smart guy, Yoda is.

No wrestling with this: Rocking with Fozzy is No. 1 for Chris Jericho
