Other Opportunities Are Found In Stories, Not In Life

Everyone dreams of a successful life full of good jobs, honor, fame, wealth, comfort, happiness, and tranquility. But all this is available to only a few people while others are deprived.

Most people live in jealousy over the success and development of others, but many people want to know how to ensure a successful life according to their desires and dreams. Relatives, colleagues, students, and friends often ask what are the paths and strategies that prevent failure and give success.

My answer is simple. Follow these principles and follow-through, then success will follow in your footsteps.

  1. Be accountable first,
  2. Think and set goals for your life.
  3. Consult teachers, parents, and experts in this work.
  4. Goals are lofty but realistic in terms of the resources, capacity, and time you have available.
  5. When you make targets, work to achieve them.
  6. Make hard work the motto. Love the work.
  7. Do your best, don’t look for others, and don’t wait.
  8. Avoid laziness, restlessness, and postponing work.

 I often tell my students and listeners to love the book. She is the only lover in the world who brings her lover to the heights of success, progress, honor, and prosperity, not loss and disgrace.

Trust in God’s help. Assured that he never let hard work go in vain. Whoever works hard, must be rewarded. You just have to be more discriminating with the help you render toward other people.
