Success Is No Accident

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all, love of what you are doing.” –Pele

Having success is no accident. It’s a formula that consists of hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing. You must put 100% into all six categories.

Hard Work: You always hear that hard work will get you anything you want. Which is true, but you also have to work smart while you are working hard. This means using your time wisely on productive tasks and activities that will produce results. Hard work can sometimes mean just being busy. Busy does not create productive outputs or results. Ensure your hard work is focused to specific goal, because your labor has great value. Work hard and work smart!

Perseverance: This can be the “straw that breaks the camel’s back” as some would say. Perseverance means you push past any obstacles that will come your way. With perseverance you continue working hard and smart on your goals knowing that you’ll defeat the difficulties and trials. Persevere for your passion, and you won’t have regrets.

Learning: We start with a clean slate when we are born. We are a vessel that [should] never stop learning. Always be open to learning something new and being taught by others. This would be a great opportunity for a personal mentor. Some individuals have dedicated their life to their field of expertise, and they will teach you things that you never knew existed. Knowledge is power. This power will fuel you to work smarter.

Studying: In other words, be prepared when life opens the doors of opportunities. An opportunity can only be realized if you know what it is to your situation. These opportunities are not dropping out of the sky; some only come once in a lifetime. So study what you’ve learned by applying it to your everyday life. I’ve always been more prepared when I use what I’ve learned. Put your knowledge to the test.

Love: To work hard, have perseverance, learn something new, and study for something, you must love it! You will have a miserable time if you do not love what you do. Since you love something so dearly you will be able to work hard at it, persevere through the hard times, learn more, and study it. This will bring you joy and you’ll fall in love with it everday.
