Jordan’s story is a very intriguing one foiled the full desire to succeed at all cost but key lessons to learn from his life includes. 

1. Success has no permanent bench mark, you can choose to be better than the history you have known if only you dare to take risks associated to the success you desire in faith.

2. Just as the drive to succeed in career is important you must also strive to succeed in marriage and family. Don’t settle for a divorce so marry rightly to avoid it.

3. Always set high expectations for yourself and you will see that you have all it takes to get them within you even though they appear in a potential and dormant form initially.

4. Formal education is very important but its not the only determinant of success.
