What does success mean to you? As for me, I evaluate success in different ways and coming from the corporate sector, my idea of success is not only doing well myself but as a team. This is to say , success is when I am doing my job well, meeting the goals set by my supervisor, having working healthy relationship with my clients and fellow workers and satisfied with my position, knowing my work is not only adding value to my company but also to my overall life and lives of other people.
There is no short-cut to success. One must be willing to put in more effort than everyone else to be better. On the other hand, there is individual success, which is being able to achieve your personal life objectives. Decide what you want to achieve and how you want to achieve it. It’s not what others say about you, it’s what you do about it. The various problems you face in life should not hinder you from achieving your desired dreams.
Do not listen to the noises around you. Relentless determination, discipline, consistency and believing in yourself is where your focus should be. Always strive for excellence since it is the only key to your progress. You need to stand out and be identified from the crowd.
