Success always depends on the person.
What you do can either lead you to success or aid you in failure. Yes, it is always associated with our willingness to do what needs to be done and how far we are willing to go to get there.
Now, if you mean to succeed, here are the qualities you should possess:
Success, like life, is a learning process. There is something to be learned every day, and each lesson will serve you well. That is why you keep trying and learning. No set back is ever too big or too small; you learn what you can and go on.
This word could have a negative connotation, but we will not dwell on it. By ambitious, we mean in a good and positive way. It means you can envision greatness and have the tenacity to work hard and be great. It means not settling for anything less than you deserve and not giving up even when things get hard, really hard.
Success is not for the faint of hearts, and it certainly is not an easy feat. You will face backlash and difficulties along the way. You may even fall several times, and you need courage to carry you through it all. With courage, you will take risks, and you will not give up no matter how big the hurdle you face.
A person who is committed to his journey cannot be dissuaded, not by any form of challenge. He gives it everything he has got even when he has to start over several times. He knows what he wants and deserves and willing to get it, too. Therefore, committed becomes you.
You take responsibility for your actions, and you are the driver of your own life. You don’t depend on anyone to get things done for you nor ask anyone’s permission to live your life and manage your affairs. When things don’t go your way, you don’t go around pointing fingers. Instead, you take ownership and make the best out of the situation you are in.
Do you possess these characteristics? If you do, you are meant to succeed and achieve great things, and if you don’t, it is never too late to learn them.
