Success is "NOT" Owned! It is Achieved!

Updated: Jan 14, 2020




A river, when it flows by itself is just a stream of water calm and nice. But the most picturesque is when it flows through rocks smashing itself on them and making froth that reflects the colours of the rainbow! The water that falls from the top of a hill, how breathtaking it is! A rose blooms in the middle of a thousand thorns and yet it is the sign of love. Nature is a great teacher to learn from. All the theories of it could be directly applied to our lives as well.


Success is not pre-owned. Neither is it gifted. It should be achieved through dedication and perseverance. My outlook is that the key to success is having a strong will and patience. The ability to strive through all the circumstances that life lays in front of us has a major impact on how fast we reach the milestones of success.



Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Shahrukh khan, and many other world-renowned personalities also have heart-melting life stories as well! Therefore it of great significance that we understand that hard work always leads us to a better place than we are already in.

The life stories of many successful people aren’t the type that we think they are! The hardships they have gone through have been reasons for them to rise above the ordinary. Here is the finest example, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Today he is among the highest-paid actors in the world, winning the hearts of millions of people. But would you believe if I said that he was once homeless and depressed? , or that he hardly had even $7 in his pocket? His life story isn’t as “happy” sounding as many of us may think! He was bankrupt and homeless, extruded from the football team and he was even rejected by audiences during his first days in the ring when he entered wrestling to get out of depression. At present, he is known to be one of the most influential people in the world. So isn’t it clear that success doesn’t just come out of a box? To dream for things that we think are impossible can push us through the hard times to let us step on success. Above mentioned was just about one personality. Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, Shahrukh khan, and many other world-renowned personalities also have heart-melting life stories as well! Therefore it of great significance that we understand that hard work always leads us to a better place than we are already in.



Most of all there are certain things that we should take into our lives and certain things that we should remove. The ability to do so comes through self-discipline and a clear vision. Many of us underestimate the fact that everything we deal in life, good or bad it all depends on the way we choose to take them. If we could take hardships as lessons and motivators it would give us more pleasure in dealing with our daily struggles. It is also important that we keep in mind the law of attraction of the universe! We have the power to attract positive and negative energy to us as well as anything that we want. Therefore if we take things in a negative manner it will only lead us to more troublesome situations. Henceforth it is up to us to choose what energy we attract to ourselves. A positive mindset will always pave the way to succeed in every way possible.


Many of us suffer from rejection and incompetence, but can’t it be a redirection for us to do or receive something better? And we should take into mind that opinions don’t matter, as they are not our reality. Through the journey to success, we face insults at its best and negative comments of people who try to drag us down. It is important that we keep away from such people and negative energy. And the most important thing is that we realize that every person’s journey is different.


Listed below are some tips that would help you to make life successful and easy!
