Sean McHale, managing director and Sarasota County president of SunTrust Bank, has some helpful tips for you.

McHale, who has been successful throughout his career (click here to read more about McHale's business history) recently started a new position with SunTrust.

In an interview with the Business Observer, McHale gave us his four tips on achieving success.

1) Surround yourself with the best people you can.
2) Trust them. Part of your business development is when you learn early on to trust yourself. At some point in your career you learn to trust others and then you get the benefit of multiple people doing wonderful things.
3) Do something that you absolutely love. The ability to be successful is so tied into the passion that you bring to something. It's often good planning but probably more often good fortune that younger men and women find what they want to do and ultimately achieve great things. You achieve things if you're doing what you love every day.
4) Don't forget your family. We live in a world that is increasingly demanding of your time and of your efforts. I could literally, if I wanted to, work from the time I awoke to the moment I went to bed. There's an opportunity to do that and I come close on many, many days. But you need to remember those fundamental value things about your family and their needs, their interests, your church, your God, etc. Keep them there. Sometimes they don't scream as loud as the business efforts will scream from time to time.
