Though it varies to all human beings but one thing for sure, it won’t come easily.

Success is the ability of a person to reach a level or goal in life though whatever the goal you might have which you want to surpass. And to be successful, there is no secret single door, you have work on many different doors to be successful and what worked for you might not be worked for others, so it’s a maze and each time answer of the maze changes according to personal criteria and achievement goal of success. But there are a few basic steps and tips that can improve your chances and laid done the foundation for your success. Some essential tips which might benefit you Here they are:

Always Expand Your knowledge, don’t look for Results:

Knowledge is power and if you focus on exploring new things, improving your skills, discovery, and enhancing your knowledge through books, articles your motivation gets pumped up. Don’t always focus on results, But If you do, your motivation and goal will be like the weather which dies in a minute by the tornado. This reading, learning new experiences while going through the journey of success will increase your knowledge and give you a new perspective, so focus on the journey, not on the destination.

Develop Mental Strength:

Many people have this mental strength to see the challenges as an opportunity. It felt them as they control over themselves and their destiny, fulfill their goals, confidence in whatever they do and so tough that once they started, they finish the work. What to do to improve this

· Push yourself hard toward the goal

· Find support

· Set some goals

· Observe carefully

Work what you love to do:

If you do work and you hate it, no matter how much you work hard for it, you won’t be successful and you will find it almost impossible to continue working. Even if you become successful at your job which you hate, it means filling your heart with straws, not feelings or love.

So, Focus and explore yourself and find out what you love about and once you found work that you love, this itself will give you motivation and passion to move forward. And success will felt like a dream which gets fulfilled.

Afraid not but learn from failure:

Many successful and great people always believe and suggested that they don’t felt sorry about failure, nor lose hope but consider this failure an opportunity and spend time and then start again wisely. Always pay attention to your failure and find a cause that made your journey a failure and study them, and then start again. Always consider your failure one more opportunity to learn.

Always introduce new ideas:

Ideas matter and when it got succeed the value of idea increase 100 folds. In the journey of becoming successful, always put forward new ideas, new thoughts and these are the factors that make you unique and different than others.

If you had an idea which you think you can put in a positive way, don’t throw it maybe because it is unbelievable or unique but instead celebrate that you had an idea which you can work on and it might lead to your success.

Focus on your action and work Hard:

Whatever plan you had for yourself, don’t tell anyone at the early stages and focus on your actions. Always see what you are doing, what’s the positive impact it can have, and if negative, to what extent. Shape yourself and time in which you are in and you only can do it if you work on action hard. Don’t wait and sat back for anything to happen well you go out and strike to the thing that’s why you can have success. True success always comes from doing work that you love and doing hard.

Don’t doubt yourself:

It’s human nature that in a journey at some point, he doubts himself, even Google doubt its potential and tried to sell them to Yahoo and now see they are on the top of Tech companies. If you doubt yourself after working so much, this will make things worse but if others combine to your doubt, this will completely destroy yourself.

Don’t doubt yourself and don’t pay any time to these doubts and people’s comments, just ignore it and head your thoughts on one point which you love.

A king with A key to Happiness

His Majesty the king Tunga Bhadra issued a royal proclamation that a person who could answer his three questions would be given three thousand gold coins as a reward.

Tung Bhadra was the king of Aparajita in ancient India. He was famous for his bravery, charity, wisdom and justice. He treated his subjects like his family. In his kingdom, there was no poverty, no corruption, no treachery and no envy. Every one had means and resources for their livelihood and well-being.

The king was highly respected, affectionately loved and adored by his subjects. Every child in Aparajita was bred up with moral and ethical values as per contemporary assumptions.

Tung Bhadra had seven sons. They were all progressive in their thoughts but abrupt in their actions. Due to such nature of his sons, the king was a bit uncertain about the future. He thought and thought to get some idea to leave behind some wisdom for his people so that they would remain happy after his death without depending on their king.

One morning,the king while casually walking in his royal orchard mused if he could know the key to happiness! He consulted books of religion and faith, and some preserved manuscripts of wisdom of ages. He had selected the most important three questions and anticipated that the answers of these questions would certainly be ‘a key to happiness’.

The king summoned his courtiers and learned men in his court but no answer could satisfy any of his questions. Then he informed the people through public announcement.After hearing that hundreds of scholars and learned men from far off places responded. They came to his court to attend scholarly discourse.

The king asked the first question, “What is the most important time?” Some answered, ‘ the time spent in the service of God is the most important.’ And some said, ‘the time spent in performing our duties.’ Several answers were given but none could convince the king.

“Who is the most important person?” was the second question. Someone answered, ‘the king’ ‘priest’ and another ‘the farmer’. The king was not satisfied with these answers.

The king was worried that his efforts for seeking answers would go in vain. With a misty hope asked his third question, “What is the most important task?” A learned man answered, ‘the service of the king’, another scholar said, ‘the prayer’. Some said, ‘the service of poor and helpless’. The king was very disappointed. He was left with no option except to pray Almighty for the guidance.

One day, a courtier of another kingdom visited in the court of Tung Bhadra for some official duty. In the conversation he referred to some anchorite who lived in a deep forest and was known for his extraordinary wisdom and enlightenment. Hearing about such an anchorite, the king could see the beacon light. He further curiously asked about him. The anchorite had never left his abode in the forest. People could visit him there.

Next day early morning the king with a few trusted men rode on horses to meet the anchorite in the forest. Reaching near the anchorite’s abode, the king left his men and horses there. He alone proceeded to meet him. Seeing the anchorite the king bowed down his head with reverence. He asked the king to sit down on the ground in front of him.

The anchorite asked the king to explain purpose of his visit. The king told his three questions. The anchorite answered his first question, “the most important time is- ‘Now’. Because this time you are master whatever you want you can do.

Second question- Who is the most important person? The anchorite said that the person with whom you are at the moment is the most important person. Now I am your most important person and you are mine.

The anchorite replied third question- ‘the task you are doing at the moment is the most important’. You are listening the answers of your questions is the most important task. The king was fully satisfied with the answers. He expressed his most humble gratitude to the anchorite.

The king came back to his palace happy and relaxed. In due course of time he explained the key to happiness to his people.
