Success decoded

by Vijay Singh Share via -

I always got curious to know what success all about is and how one can succeed in life.  When I was young I was told by my parents to choose a career which can provide financial security to the golden years of your life and stop dreaming outside the assumed boundaries. To them and me that became a destiny until the day, I got enlightened by my childhood mentor who said, find out the purpose of life and act accordingly. That shifted my belief and my approach towards my own life.

There are six key elements to lead a successful and fulfilled life. 

1.   Dream  BIG

2.   Positive Attitude

3.   Motivation

4.   Passion

5.   Perseverance

6.   Thankfulness

Dream BIG

“If you can dream it, you can do it.” – Walt Disney

How true Walt Disney had been! Dhirubhai Ambani once also said “If you can dream BIG you can do it.” I witnessed the success of many celebrities, and found one thing in common – they all followed their dreams, took baby steps every day, monitored their progress, and reached where they are today. One can overcome their own shortcoming if they dare to dream BIG and do something unimaginable.  Try it out it really works!

“I have had dreams, and I’ve had nightmares. I overcame the nightmares because of my dreams.” – Jonas Salk

Positive Attitude

Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude. Zig Ziglar


Your prospective towards your life take a sea level change once you persist with the positivity in your attitude. Attitude is contagious which helps you to tide over a crisis situation smoothly. Surround yourself with the people who display positivity in their approach. To realize your BIG dreams it is so very important to always act with the positive frame of mind to achieve what you want!





Life is not just about surviving but living to its fullest to create your own destiny. Motivation plays a key role in guiding you to the peak of your life and stay there. As A. P. J. Abdul Kalam rightly puts it “the bird is powered by its own life and by its motivation.


When you look at people who are successful, you will find that they aren't the people who are motivated, but they have consistency in their motivation too. Consistency is the key to keep you going despite all odds.


Passion is all about pursuing something with great intensity. No task can look BIG and unachievable if pursued with great velocity and passion. Identify your   dreams and go for it. I have observed my professionals turned entrepreneurs fail in their attempt to be of their own majorly due to lack of this very element.  Passion can take you where you want to be professionally.


Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance. Benjamin Carson

Perseverance is all about making a choice to stay with what you want and never give up. If you pursue a goal or a dream which is very close to your heart than you will have to stick to it no matter what other people feel about it. If you fail 19 times you will definitely succeed the 20th time. American President Abraham Lincoln, who
lost eight elections, twice failed in business and suffered a nervous breakdown. He could have quit many times - but he didn't and because he didn't quit, he became one of the greatest presidents in the history. As Samuel Johnson also puts it  Through hard work, perseverance and a faith in God, you can live your dreams”.


Sometimes we need to remind ourselves that thankfulness is indeed a virtue.

William Bennett


An attitude of gratitude adds to the positivity to your state of mind. Be blessed with what you have in life than thinking about what you do not have. People generally prefer to stay with happy, grateful and cheerful people than miserable, down cast, merchant of doom and gloom. As a consequence, truly grateful people attract more opportunities in their personal and professional lives than non grateful ones.

Consider keeping a gratitude journal and write down all things which you are grateful of every day for a month. You will be surprised with the result of this daily log and find yourself with the higher level of enthusiasm, alertness, determination, optimism and energy.

Thankfulness is an important element of success. It is an attitude we need to learn to acquire – particularly when we feel ourselves in a difficult situation.
