Success may have a different meaning for each one of us. However, the road to getting from where we are to where we want to be is pretty much the same, no matter what. Here are ten tips to keep you going on your journey to your version of success:

  1. The road to failure is paved with the blacktop of procrastination. To put things off till tomorrow is the surefire way not to be successful because tomorrow never comes.
  2. In any task, in any endeavor, concentrate harder than anyone else. Zoom your attention on the question at hand as if using a magnifying glass to augment the sun rays.
  3. Shyness and bashfulness give no returns. Go for it.
  4. Always expect the unexpected and nothing will surprise you. This is what good chess players do.
  5. Do not ever lie to yourself. Be ready to admit your foibles and flaws, and flattery will not affect or change you.
  6. Keep a healthy lifestyle. Without health, success is meaningless.
  7. Be ready to change course on short notice. Adapt to circumstances and never be pigheaded.
  8. Never give up: Show them the type of person you are! Throwing in the towel is the easy way out.
  9. Learn and master the best tool you have in life: language. Two is better than one.
  10. Do not rush head on. Ponder, consider and meditate and then, plunge in.
