Being Successful in Your Efforts

At one time in your life, you've probably taken up the interest in searching up what it means to be successful. In a society where we have astounding people stepping up and showing their many gifts, and the awards and good reward it brings them- it makes us wonder. How can I be successful? How can I show the world my work among the floodgate and prosperity that rings around me. There is no simple way to answer that question, but when it comes to an article done on Dan Schawbel, we have ideas that make it a little easier. Dan's article is on the, "14 Things Every Successful Person has in Common, starting with number one." "They know when to stay and when to leave. Successful people know exactly when they should change employers, start a company or fold their company. They have good intuition and aren't afraid to make hard choices, despite opposing forces." (Click here) Have you ever been in a situation where the opportunity that presented itself seemed to have a mysterious connotation to it, such as accepting a job but knowing it wasn't your career path? Or having to go through classes that don't necessarily apply to the major that you were pursuing? This all not only has a mysterious reason to it, but a successful one. According to what Dan says, the success that springs forth, takes the most rejuvenation when despite the opposing forces people are avid to keep growing and learning. This can take place in a job that acts as a next stepping stone to the future opportunities that will be asked of them. With this, there are so many things that require a person to keep cue on how to battle these opposing forces. So, successful people also must know when to leave; when the situation is no longer serving them and they find greater value in doing something else. Successful people are not only able to decipher irrelevant opportunities, but make the most important ones a fire to fuel their learning capacity and growth for their aspirations of the future. "A successful person will persevere." (Schawbel, Dan)
