3 Tips for Success

3 Tips for Success

Everyone strives for success in life. The definition of success may differ from person. Some may be aiming for little, some for more and some may aim for a lot.
"Don't aim for success if you want it; Just do and love what you believe in, and it will come naturally."- David Frost
There is great depth in this quote. Love whatever you do. Believe in what you do. Be passionate about what you believe in. Success will come naturally.
There are three characteristics that stand out in successful men. Anyone who wants success in life must have these traits in them. They make a person achieve their goals naturally. These are commitment, sincerity and hard work.

Commitment

Commitment to ones beliefs is the most important trait we must possess. One must be committed to what we do. Many a dream lies shattered because of a lack of commitment. Everything we do must be with commitment. Whether it is our career or relationship. It is like a pillar that supports success. Plan your success story and be committed to it. Your commitment will ensure that you will walk firmly on the way regardless of the hurdles or obstacles that may come in the way.
"Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality."- Abraham Lincoln

Sincerity

The second trait one must possess is sincerity. Sincerity is your truthfulness to your dreams and purpose. No matter what, always stay true to what you have committed to. Sincerity will be rewarded. It is a strong characteristic that shows its presence in the work that we do. It displays our commitment to our cause and opens the doors of success to us.
"Sincerity and truth are the basics of every virtue."- Confucius

Hard work

Once you have the commitment and the sincerity, the natural outcome is hard work. Success depends on how much effort we are willing to put in. We will have to make a decision of the time and hard work we are going to put in. Our level of willingness to work hard must surpass all limits. This will lead to a consistent and persistent effort towards our goals. That is turn will take us close to success... one step at a time.
"Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it."- Napoleon Hill.
Once we have a goal in life, we must start working on acquiring the three characteristics. These should be part of our character. Once they are part of our character, we become the person that success comes to.
Oscar Wilde put it very aptly. He quoted, "Success is like science; if you have the conditions, you get the result."

5 W's of WisdomThe most prized possession one could ever have is wisdom. Wisdom is the source of all good things that you can imagine. You may want fame and fortune. Or you may want to enjoy great relationships. One who has wisdom knows the way to true happiness. It is not a wonder that King Solomon asked wisdom from God. He could have asked for wealth, fame and fortune. He was blessed with everything else that one can ever imagine. Wisdom comes from asking the right questions. Here are five questions that will help. Wisdom starts with the letter W. All five questions also start with W. Who to look up to?All wisdom has to come from some source. The best source one can find is God himself? The Bible tells us in Proverbs 9:10- "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom." The root Hebrew word which has been translated fear means deep reverence. This is a line worth memorizing.

My Life in time of Social Distancing

Most of us will relate to the movie 'The Martian'. More in these times than any other time.  In the movie, we see Matt Damon left behind on Mars... all alone. Based on a novel by Andy Wier and directed by Ridley Scott, the movie captures the attention of the audience as 'The Martian' tries various activities to stay alive, occupied and find a way back home. The movie highlights the strong survival instincts of man.

We all are in a similar situation. Many of us may say yes. Well, not really. Unlike 'The Martian', we are still on planet Earth. Thank God, we are with our family. Now that we are all at home now, the question that is looming large on all our minds is "what do I do now?" We tried everything that we keep ourselves occupied with. We flooded the social media with our digital discussions. Online gamer's are almost lost in their digital gaming world. We finished our quota of listening to music. We watched all the movies that we had missed d…
