Do you know what success equation is? Do you have any idea how to succeed in your life? Do you know success factors? I really had not thought much about how to define success. Or how to determine success equation, until I was asked the same question by a very close life friend, my dear cousin. Whom I share my life with. This happened in year 2000, when I told him a story about one of my colleagues. Who distracted work operation in the company, where I was working, by his way of thinking and acting.
His question to me was: Do you know success equation?!
Some of my initial responses were; money, power, raising children, faith, acting against failure and so on. All of these are factors in what I refer to as success equation. But what my wise cousin told me has changed a major phase in my future path. I am following and reviewing this equation always.
Knowledge: The fact of knowing, study, learn, read, monitor, and have a good memory.
Skills: Resulting from practice, natural ability, or from both. Practice, practice, practice.
Attitude: Be good, always. Have a good thinking and acting, of& towards others.
For this discussion, I will share with you my personal slide above, which describes one main factor in success equation: ATTITUDE. A key factor which can change your success path. Look at the birds above and see which one you are now (representing& mimicking). Which one you want to be? Look at the successful people around you. Which bird they are, and what attitude they are having?
Success equation: Knowledge + Skills + Attitude.
To be successful; learn more, read more, and increase your knowledge. As we always say: Knowledge is the power. Then practice (practice, practice, and practice), to have better& stronger skills. And finally, have a good way of thinking and acting. Be good, and have a positive attitude all the time.
For your success equation; Increase your knowledge, gain more skills, and have a positive attitude (thinking and acting).
For me, attitude was a major factor in my success. You can start changing your attitude and see the difference. I close this article with one my favorite quotes from Prophet Mohammed, peace been upon him, *I was rather sent to conclude moralities*.
