How do you define success?
Everyone has their own meaning of what that question incapsulates. I have yet to define what success means to me, but I have an idea of what skills sets i may need to become successful.
I will outline what traits and strengths I have developed and worked on that might be influential in helping me becoming successful:
Motivation: Without a desire to work and improve you will be stagnant in your career or life.
Ambition: I am naturally very ambitious, I am always trying to reach my goals whatever they be.
Competitive Spirit: I grew up playing sports (soccer/baseball/track), I am competitive because I want my team/side to win and I will try my best to ensure that my team/ side will succeed. I dislike losing and failing, but loses can teach you something that a victory may not. I have learned through sports to be a leader and work with other teammates, despite the differences you may have.
Persuasiveness: To be successful, in whatever line of work you are in, you need to be persuasive. You must be able to persuade your employer to support your work or claim.
Education: Education can separate you from other employees. Education give you the intangible tools to apply to whatever line of work you are interested in.
