Life is not without struggles. There are circumstances that test our determination to succeed. We may fail along the way, maybe several times but it doesn’t matter. We get up, learn from our failures and go on to realize our dream. And I would say, dream big. It should be big enough to inspire us each day.
I’d like to share 3 things we need on our journey to success.
1. Don’t stop learning.
With the recent advances in information technology, vast resources are made available to us. So learn as much as you can and acquire new skills. Do a self-study on any new available technologies or topics that interest you if there are no opportunities for formal training. That would give you a significant advantage over others even those foreign counterparts you may have in your career life. And never forget to learn from the people around you.
2. Don’t be afraid to take risk.
Trying to do something you haven’t yet tried involves risk. And generally, we are afraid to take risk. We are so afraid to fail. But if we look at the people we consider successful, they have their share of failures.
3. Go beyond your comfort zone.
We have a tendency to stay within our comfort zone. But I would say more exciting challenges are out there. The more rewarding thing to experience is to overcome challenges and discover new things. At first, we’ll feel the stress and discomfort but the success at the end will be much sweeter.
So if you don’t stop learning, never afraid of taking risk and willing to go beyond your comfort zone, then you would surely be amazed at the success you would achieve. And above all, honor God and trust in Him for it is HE who gives us the ability to produce wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18).
