1. You need to wait for the right opportunity
The real truth is that nothing is ever perfect, opportunity won’t just come knocking – You have to hunt for it. Many successful people started small and made mistakes along the way.
2. You will be happy when you become successful
Many get it wrong with such expectations. The reality is that success is more of a journey than a destination. Happiness shouldn’t be waited for; you need to appreciate every moment of the climb to the top by building on your relationships and balancing work/personal life.
3. You can succeed on your own
Success is not achieved independently. Many successful people have mentors and a support group of people who contribute to their success.
4. You define making money as success
The truth is that money is a powerful motivator – Yet money could make you bankrupt on other aspects of your life. It is better to see or view success making a contribution or adding value.
5. You need a lot of time to attain success
Many people want success fast. The truth is that success needs no lucky breaks but consistent effort daily, monthly and yearly.
6. You will attain success at your first try
No one gets it the first time. Successful people fail and they keep trying until they succeed. Failure plays a key role to success.
