Be faithful and work hard
In order to taste success in life, you need to have complete faith in your creator and remember that if you work hard with sincerity, you will reap the rewards sooner or later. Whether you like it or not, luck does play a huge role in your success and failures. Some people achieve success very early in their careers; whereas, some have to work hard all their life. Have faith in God and keep in mind that no one can change your destiny.
In order to be successful in this world, you have to be completely focused on your goal. If you do not get distracted by different happenings around you, your chances of achieving success are bound to be very high.
Be patient and content
Being patient is one of the keys to success as a hasty man is less likely to achieve his goals as compared to one who is patient. Once you have done your part by working hard then leave everything in the hands of God.
If you do not have the ability to be content, then you can never be successful in the true sense. Work hard all your life and believe in your creator; however, it is imperative that you are happy with what you have and be thankful. You will never be able to enjoy life to its fullest if you are not happy or content.
