First of all, what is your definition of success?
Success is a subjective term and its definition varies among all of us.
You have to define what is success for yourself and not let others decide it for you.
Success could mean growing everyday and contributing to the world.
One does not have to be a CEO or general to be successful.
Success could mean career progression and winning rat race or attaining high socioeconomic status for some but not everyone.
A farmer or Grab driver can also be successful as long as personal objectives and needs are fulfilled.
Secondly, know what you want in life
Knowing what you want and why you want it is crucial to achieving your goals. If you don’t know what you want, how can you ever achieve it?
Once you are confident in yourself and your abilities, you need to determine what exactly it is that you want from your life.
