These successful people are dedicated and are more appreciative for what they have because they know how hard they worked to reach their goals. A worn out old Honda from the early 2000’s bought by a high school student working part time can mean so much more than a brand new 2017 Lexus some rich teenager bought with their parents money. The time and effort put forth by those who achieve their goals like buying a car make them more successful than those who are given what they have without working for it. Likewise, those who are given certain spots in activities like a club or a sports team only because of their family, money, or popularity are unsuccessful as well. Someone who barely made it into a club or sports team due to their hard work is the more successful one because again the spot wasn’t just handed to them. Therefore, the people who are most successful are often not famous or have a lot of novelties rather are those who are the most dedicated and work their hardest to attain their
The push to keep training and maintaining the discipline of a Basketball player despite the initial rejection makes Michael Jordan iconic. He knew that the way to the top would not be easy, but he was determined to do all it takes to get there. This shows that no one who truly wants to make a mark should think that life is a bed of roses. There is something to overcome; there are disciplines to maintain if we want to get to great heights. We can overcome obstacles like a genius when we pattern our lives to do the things that geniuses do.
the expectation that the means to achieve goals is to work harder than others.” (McGraw−Hill,
I feel that in order to achieve personal success in our society you need 3 key things. For one, you need to have determination. In our culture, we seem to have a universal ideology along the lines of “keep going, and you will succeed eventually.” I feel that these idea’s are incredibly true, and have been shown to be effective every time. A good example of this trait in one of the texts we read is in the Odyssey when Odysseus needed to get back home, and despite the odds being against him, he never gave up. He always kept going, and when the going got rough, he got back right up and started over again. Another trait is intelligence. Because we have gone away from warrior culture in modern times, academic success is more than mandatory to achieve
It is every person’s wish to progress or, move from one point to another in life. Everybody loves being successful. However, there are a number of factors, which should be put into consideration in order to be successful. These are fundamental things that got you where you are, but will not get you to your destiny. On this note, this paper will discuss at length, the important factors that should be taken into account, so as to be successful. The paper will start by introducing the relevance of success, and later delve on what factors will get you there, and sum up by giving an overall view on the topic at
Having the desire to be successful is one thing but without the doing the little things you will never get there. Successful people are committed to doing something every single day. Regardless of what is going on in their lives they work on their craft. They overcome the daily battle between procrastination and motivation. Every day, most people have a list of things they want to do; need to do; or should do; and what they don’t want to do. It’s these daily choices that are influenced by our discipline and
Most of us have similar opinion about the term of success. Malcolm Gladwell, the author of Outlier, have different assumption than most us, such as the link to success, what people overvalue, and what we undervalue. First, what links to success? There are many circumstance that effect you chance to success. To begin with, talent is one of the conditions that leads you to the success. For example, having better trait compare to other individual will make yourself outstanding, so you have the better chance being hire. Additionally, without effort, you chance become success for will likely to decrease. For instance, even if you were born talented, without the effort, you will not be able to make use of it. In the end, you basically wasted your
Success isn’t success in the dreamed-up sense that we grow up with. Success is often just surviving the day to day tribulations that we face. Success is having the capabilities to support the ones we love. To do that, we must provide Sacrifice and Hope. Success is dependent in no small part to sacrifice. Whether that sacrifice is hours spent at work, giving up a career to be with family or allowing others to demean you while maintaining a level of professionalism. It’s clear that we almost must sacrifice something to obtain success. Yet it is important to preserve our hopes and dreams. That hope is the wall that supports us when we feel tired or beaten down. The Loving Support of a Woman shows how significant family can be, a main driving factor towards success is the need to be caring and nurturing to those that depend on you. When you have people to protect, it forces one to strive to be the best they can. As a final point, be Satisfied with What You Earned. Although it is essential to do all you can, understanding and placing value in the success you’ve already produced induces a level of confidence and support. Take these moments to appreciate what you’ve earned with your own two hands. Enjoying the fruits of your labors is a benefit of being successful, not an item to be stored away
I am an overachiever and I live by the notion of meritocracy. I believe that the hard work and effort that I put into everything will equate into success. For me, the door of opportunities is opened for those who knock on the door with the right skills, attitude, merit, and character. I believe the lie of the “American Dream” that if you put your mind and heart to accomplish something, you can certainly do so. When hospitals, successful businesses, and law firms look for people to hire, they want the cream of the crop. Would you honestly hire a mediocre lawyer or let a doctor who barely passed medical school to operate on you? I believe the answer is no. I strive to be the cream of the crop so that I can earn what I worked so hard to
Before success, there is always a process in which you first start with. Many people start after acknowledging a moment in their life that motivates them to do more. Many of these successful people come from a variety of unique backgrounds and a lot of them from disadvantaged backgrounds, such as poverty, a single-parents’ household, or even abusive parents. These causes, however do more than inspire themselves, but others who see their success story. This results in a way where it gives people a change of mindset to prove those people wrong and move on from that disadvantaged background. Another thing that can come from this is the support of others and being able to create new and healthy relationships with others who would help lead them to success. I see
Whenever someone else makes an accomplishment, small or large, they deserve all respect and recognition for their hard work. I constantly work to build others up and ensure that their efforts do not go unnoticed. John C. Maxwell, author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, notes that “If you are a leader, you should never forget that everyone needs encouragement. And everyone who receives it - young or old, successful or less-than-successful, unknown or famous - is changed by it.” As humans we are driven by the recognition of others, and I recognize the value of encouragement. By building others up, I have the power to assist others in their development as
How the world defines success varies from one's personal achievements and the culture from which that motivation to succeed grows. What is to say the worlds greatest achievement is the ability to praise the very accomplishment of others, or perhaps its biggest atrocity. The success of others is often viewed not in their achievement that originally made them a successor, but what that prosperity has done. What is the atrocity of success is not its foundation, but the multitude of fortune’s it might bring. Such fortunes include money, popularity, and power. No “successful” person is absent of these staples to their success. Perhaps what is worse is how success, in its most prevalent form, creates sentiments of exclusivism.
We want to believe that people fail because they deserve to fail and people succeed because they earn it. The truth, however, is that not all hard work pays off, not all successful people deserve it, and good
People don’t tend to work hard, and think things will just be handed to them. That’s not the case in the real world. In a study from jackcanfield.com, Successful people go the extra mile- and they stand out as a result. They get the promotions and the loyal customers. They grow their businesses twice as fast and attract the best employees. They receive financial rewards and job security. Best of all, they go home at night feeling satisfied and bursting with self-confidence”. Some might argue that some people are just not born with that ability to work as hard as others, but I believe once someone really tries their best they can achieve whatever they want to overcome. We can all agree that people who go that extra mile will achieve more than those who tend to take the easy way, in addition people should believe in themselves first. If you don't believe in yourself no one will. According to realmenrealstyle.com, “Going the extra mile is the difference between being average vs being the one of the top performers/athletes/musicians/businessmen in the world”. If you go that extra mile of course there will be times when others will notice. You may even be rewarded for it. A raise, a bonus, or a simple thank
In the eyes of people all around the world, success is viewed as how much wealth and items an individual has. Rose Mary, a pursuer in being a fashion designer, nevertheless, is successful due to her drive and motivation to reach her goal. When asked how she personally defines success, Rose Mary replied, “Having a hard work ethic and being determined to reach your life goal, no matter how far it may seem, as long as you push through the obstacles, and your happy with your results.” Cleary, Mary’s views success as being pleased for all the hard work you have done to get where you are at even though the goal may not have been yet. Also, when asked about what are her habits that help her succeed, Mary stated, “having a good time management, big
