Basics of success

1) "The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather in a lack of will."

Strong mind: Everyone of us wants to be successful.But merely wishing brings misery and disappointments rather than success.To be successful we should crave for success with all our heart.Will power is the best asset of any human being.With its strength many have achieved miraculous success.Many have won over devastating sickness.Many battles were won with little or not enough man power.Will-power gives us the strength to walk even when the last ounce of energy had left over body.If we decide we will do it, we will do it.That is the power of our will.It is called inner strength.To be successful we need to draw all our inner strength and fight till we are successful.

2) "The person who gets the farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare."

Action: This world recognizes actions rather than words.Actions prove our words.Actions show our commitment to our dreams.They are the steps to success. As the saying goes A journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step- everything ultimately boils down to our action.What we do and how we do it.Action involves analysis,planning and execution.When we take up any task we should have a plan.If we are not planning our action, then we are planning to fail.Sometimes our plans may falter.It is then to us to find the defect in our plan,correct it and re-try.The successful commander is somebody who is braver 5 more minutes than his fellow soldiers.Let our actions inspire others to support our journey towards success.

3) "Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity presented to them. They have developed the opportunity that was at hand."

Create chances:Everybody waits for their lucky break.And many expect that lucky break called chance will present to them in the form they dream of.In reality chances/opportunities/lucky breaks come and go quietly disguised in many forms.That is why even the ones waiting in alert for their chance also miss it.The best way is to be prepared always and when ready create our own opportunities.Search far and wide for it instead of waiting. Take it in any form it is available and forge it to our desires.That is the greatest secret of successful people.Create chances, do not wait for them.

4) "The difference between failure and success is doing a thing nearly right and doing a thing exactly right."

Attention to detail:This is were many of us fail.Classic example is our grade exams- scoring average can be done by the majority, while getting the highest score is real real tough.If you ask the highest scorer his secret will be his attention to detail.It applies to every field in our life.The difference between being average and being successful is the dedication that gives attention to every detail on how to achieve whatever task taken successfully.

5) "Would you like me to give you a formula for success? It's quite simple, really. Double your rate of failure."

Re-try:Many of us give up on the slightest signs of failure.It is human nature.We just cannot tolerate failures.We see failures with a mere negative eye.We miss the entire point that failures are god given opportunities to re-try.To do it all over again in a new fashion.If we could only overcome the fear of failure, we are on a right track to success.Watch babies and learn how to overcome failures.They just do not give up until they do it successfully.

6) "Success is not a destination, it's a journey."

Finally, we cannot be successful in life if we are just a "one time success".We need to work harder still to live up to our success.To be on top we need to constantly do better than all our competition.It is like riding a bicycle.If we stop peddling we will fall. To strive constantly comes only if we are passionate about our success.We need to respect our effort and the resulting success,only then we will want more.The good news is, with success comes tremendous confidence.Confidence gives success.Success usually breeds more success.It is a cycle as long as you could put in the required effort and energy.
