Success is achievement of a goal, action or something desired, with the help of hard work and dedication towards it.
Here I have added hard work and dedication because, if someone achieves something without doing any work it’s not success. Success is when you work hard and overcome many hurdles and achieve your goals.

We all want to become successful, and yes we can, the only condition is that we have to work hard and follow certain rules essential for success. Being a successful person proves to the world that you are smart and have achieved some valuable things in life.

Below is a list of 10 Essential qualities for Success

1)An idea
Before becoming successful you must have an idea on which you can work. This idea can be anything according to your interest such as starting a Business, writing a book or achieving academic excellence etc. The important thing in choosing your idea or way to success is that, you must know the basics of that field and have a great inclination towards it.

2)Ability of Planning.
Now you have an idea on which you will work, great. But you need a plan to work on that idea. This ability of planning is of great importance everywhere in life, because to do any thing first a plan is must.

3)Personal commitment
Promise yourself to do things necessary to achieve your goal even in difficult situations and not to give up. You must commit yourself to your goal, because total commitment is the common factor behind every success story you read and listen about.

Collect theoretical and practical understanding of the subjects related to your goal. Be familiar, aware about what is going around you and what should be done under different situations. The knowledge about your goal can be collected as facts, information, description, skill and can be acquired by discovering and learning.

5)Reasoning power

Power to reason can save you from great dangers and making blunders in life. The only thing every on should do is to question every thing before accepting anything.

6)An open mind
Being open minded means willing to adopt a new idea, which can be contradictory and opposing to your own views. It takes courage to listen and adopt ideas not matching your views. If you want to become a great leader, you must have an open mind which listens and considers everyone’s suggestions.

Success can not be achieved in one day or two, you must work hard day after day to succeed. Difficulties and many failures will come before you succeed, but you must not give up there.

8)Time management
You wont get infinite amount of time to achieve your goal and we all have limited time available to plan and achieve something in life. Hence the quality of time management should be developed by every person, who wants to succeed.

You must see an opportunity in every difficulty you face this is called being optimistic. Expect marvelous results in opposing situations and always stay away from negative thinking. If you adopt this attitude it gives power to fight back.

We all know this, if we do something which we love, we never get tired or bored doing it.


    1. If we love what we do, the best hidden inside us comes out.
      Thank you for the comment Alan. ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. oh yes, one comes through momentary lean periods and dark clouds, if the basical love and open mind is there…


  2. great tips. I also want to add “environmental support” that is sometimes necessary.


    1. np. Thank you for your idea and comment. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Environmental support is a nice thought.


    1. TanGental, my pleasure. ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. I have my AS Levels mocks in a couple of months. I am very glad I came across this post at this time of the year!
    Thanks a lot!


    1. my pleasure . ๐Ÿ™‚
      best of luck.


  4. Great tips but I have also experienced incredible growth by pursuing unexpected possibilities and opportunities which have included learning the violin and how to ski despite a severe medical condition. I would never have believed either of these paths were open to me but gave them ago due to family involvement and I’m so pleased I did. I could write all day every day but it’s also important to diversify and have intimate relationships in our lives and these by their very nature will, at least to some extent, derail us and indeed, they should. There is so much more to life than just the goal.


    1. well said. Thank you for sharing your deep thoughts with us. ๐Ÿ™‚


      1. You’re welcome. I have had a broken foot for the last 6 weeks and so have been reading more blogs than usual. It’s interesting because some advocate being focused. Others, talk about being spontaneous and following new opportunities. There’s no fixed script but I guess if you tend to get distracted, you need to work on your focus but if you tend to get too focused, a bit of distraction is a good thing.


  5. Thank you for following me! Plus I love Naruto! I’m guessing you have watched Full Metal Alchemist too? By the way I love how you try and motivate people. Folks now a days, need it with the economy and all. What did you like about my writing? I’m going to upload a scary dream I had tomorrow. Please tell your friends about me. I’ll do the same for you. ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. I would add happiness. Studies show that happiness comes before success and not the other way around. We often believe that success will bring us happiness, but that’s not true. ๐Ÿ™‚
