How do we define success? There are many different tactics for how to be successful in life, but the strategy that works best for you may depend on your view of success itself. We often think of it as doing well at work or earning a high salary.
There may not be a perfect combination of ingredients that can guarantee success, but there are some basic steps you can follow that can improve your chances of being successful in life.
Here are 4 effective tips that can lead every wise young people to success.
1. You won't keep control of your time, unless you can say ‘no’. You can't let other people start your agenda in life". Look around you, what do you see? Distraction! Distraction!! Distraction everywhere, the socio media, TVs, parties and movies. All this are interesting stuff that bring little or no value to whom you are. The more no we can say to distraction the more time we will have to be productive at things that really matters.
2. "You don't have to be smarter than the rest. You have to be more disciplined than the rest". Forget everything you've been told about talent and IQ. Talent are as common in the world as salt. Hundred's of people with two hundred IQ score are broke. Discipline, practice dedication and persistence are what you need to be successful.
3. "Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing". Take for instance, more than 90 percent of people who are planning to start their own business, will never take time to study or read even 10 books about business not to talk of 100. Yet we all believe that business and investing are risky. Why won't they? The real risk is in your ignorance, the more you know about your field the less risky it becomes. To reduce risk, seek knowledge.
4. "The chains of habit are too light to be felt untill they are too heavy to be broken". Have you ever seen a drug addict looking helpless and wishing someone to rescue him from his addiction? The best thing you can do with your life is to avoid bad habits all together. Experimenting with them is like playing with fire, because when your bad habits grow, you become their slaves.
