You need to maintain a reputation of yourself to attain success. If you are known for late and wrong works, you have less chances of succeeding in life.

Make yourself a loyal person so that, when you stand in front of a mirror, you can be proud of yourself.

9. Know your aims

“Make no little plans; they have no magic to stir men’s blood and probably will themselves not be realizes. Make big plans; aima high in hope and work, remembering that a noble, logical diagram once recorded will not die.”

–Daniel H Burnham

Until your determination, is strong, you can’t there, to the top. Firstly, you need to strengthen your will power that you can do it, and that you will do it anyhow. When this determination is strong, no one can stop you from getting to the top.

7. Accountability

“It is wrong and immoral to seek to escape the consequences of one’s acts.” ― Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

You should not play the blame game when you do something wrong. IF you have taken responsibility of a work, you must do it with all your will. You should be accountable for what you did, right or wrong. You should have all the answers in reply to the questions raised to test your work. That’s where your accountability for yourself shows.

6. Experience and application

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.”  ― Eleanor Roosevelt

Whatever you do in life, learn something from that. Sometimes very petty things make you learn very big things. Learn from the experiences of your life. If helps you all your life. It helps you not to repeat the same mistakes again ever in life. Application of your experiences is also important. You are not experiencing things to write a book, but for their application in your day-to-day life.

5. Brush up your skills

“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.” -Anthony J. D’Angelo

If you have some skills, brush them up. Success will come to you this only. May be you possess some extra ordinary art, which distinguishes from the crowd. Identify them. And the only way to identify your skills is to work on it. Work hard to brush up your skills and make it the best. Nothing is achieved that easily, you may have natural skills in you but you always need to brush them up to reach to perfection.

4. Recognize the opportunities

Opportunities will come to you always, but they won’t introduce themselves to you, you have to identify them. Identify every single opportunity you get, which can act as a step leading to success. Don’t wait for a big opportunity, many small ones will also do as is quoted above.

3. Mark your words

You should do what you say. Don’t divert your ways from your word. When you give a word to someone, stand for it. If you said someone, that you will do his/her work by tomorrow, you must do it within the time period or you may earn a bad name and one step back from success.

2. Keep a track of your watch

“Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing.”
-Thomas Jefferson

Punctuality is one of the most important steps on the way to success. If you won’t respect time, time won’t respect you. You must keep a track of your time. Things have value only if they are on time. Finish your work in the limited time. A given work has no value if it is not done on time. So, learn to respect the deadlines and be a punctual person.

1. Hard work is the key to success.

“The dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Work is the key to success, and hard work can help you accomplish anything.”  ― Vince Lombardi Jr.

Nothing can compete with hard work when it comes to success. You can’t achieve something until you work for it. As mentioned in the above quote, to accomplish your goals, hard work is the top most things you should keep in mind. Hard work can help you get anywhere in the world.
