Is it through hard work, pleasing personality, knowing right people,saving lots of money, acquiring higher qualifications or having a special talent ? Which do you think is your choice ?

To me being successful in life comes from having a kind heart, an open mind, inner strength and determination to not let anything hold you down or back..

To be succesful you need all these things plus substance and a caring heart and a relationship with God. Hard work will bring money and a family that respects you and you will be a good roll model for your kids. Pleasing personality will draw people toward you and you will have good relationships. Knowing the right people will get your car fixed for cheaper or get you the job you always wanted. Saving money will get you the things you need in life and insure your kids future and yours. Aquiring high qualifications is not really necessary to be succesful but can get you a better position in a job. Having a special talent will make you love what you do and make you impressed and happy with yourself like you have a purpose. substance and a caring heart and a relationship with God are the most important to be sucessful because without those you can lose it all.

Having found it difficult to posses all these things at once or by birth, people do choose a particular path suited most to them to achieve their goals. I have chosen hard work..for example...to match my circumstances..yours..

to succeed in life the important thing that is always work is hard work. to hard work you will always succeed. other things are also important in life not the extent to the hard work

Several factors to be considered when we talked about success: I agree with what you have mentioned and would like to add up like determination, right attitude,intelligent,self-discipline,correct motivation and might consider education...Why might? since there are a number of people who are very successful even if they are not bachelors degree or masteral or doctoral degree...JUst need to be patient and hardworking, never give up to any trials that will try to block your way and not even think that having no money is a total hindrance to one's success! I have a lot of friends who became so successful in their prospective field who were use to eat 1 meal in a day, use to sit down in a floor since the family cant afford to buy chair and use to eat with the rain falling from their roof down to their plates yet having a wonderful positions in a very prestigious company now!
