How to be successful?

I believe we all ask ourselves this question sooner or later. What does it take to be successful in life? Does it mean to be famous and renowned? Does it mean to be happy and satisfied with your life? Is it needed at all? My students created a presentation answering this question: "How to be successful in life". They presented it at the contest of translators which was held between several Universities of Russia recently. To my mind, they managed to answer the question about the key to success in the best possible way. So here is their explantion to the topic and at the bottom of the page is the presentation itself. The persmission to use their materials for this blog was kindly given to me by the creators of the presentation. I hope you will enjoy and will find advice useful to follow in order to reach your goals and become succcessful in life.

"How to be successful in life"
  • This question concerns every person nowadays.  A lot of people believe they are successful. It’s interesting that those who are wealthy, popular and powerful don’t consider them to be prosperous. But those who are not…think they are successful. Why? Have you ever thought about it?
  • According to the survey which took place in Russia this winter 60% of respondents consider themselves  successful. Moreover, 41% of them are “absolutely satisfied with their life” and 19% are “almost successful”. We decided to find the key to success. And we did it.
  •  There are a number of components of being successful. We would like to share them  with you.
  • Passion – You should have a great passion for what you do. Do it for love, not money. If you do it for love – the money comes anyway. If you do it without free will, you will never be happy or  successful in your business and life.  As Emerson said “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm”. 
  • Practice – Nothing comes to you easily. You should practice every minute you have and work at self-improvement. You should expand your possibilities and develop your skills. Practicing will make you stronger.
  • Focus – Don’t fritter away.  Every day is a barrage of suggestions, concepts and proposals. Most get lost in the shuffle and too many are forgotten. But one remarkable idea is going to spread, change the world. This idea can be yours if you focus on the right one. Focus on one idea at a time.
  • Take your time -  We as economists realize nowadays that time is the main resource that you can invest into your success. We shouldn’t waste our time - we should allocate it rationally. 
  • Persistence -  Be persistent! Don’t be afraid to fail. A failure is just an experience which makes you stronger. Never give up. No matter how many times you fall, it's important how many times you get up. Anyway you should be able to move on. 
  • Dream - Every day is another chance to make your dream come true and take small steps to realize it.  Dream. Never give up dreaming. Dream until your dreams come true. Make the plan of achieving your dream and follow it step by step. Just a simple word can lead you to great success. 
  • Believe in your success – You are perfect, you are successful right now. Believe in it. Believe in yourself and there will come the day when others will have no choice but to believe in you. Believe in yourself and stand for your dream. Even in the midst of difficult times you need to maintain confidence that  you can achieve what you want. Don’t take very much to heart if someone says you'll  fail.
  • A fresh start. If something goes wrong YOU can always have a FRESH START.  You have your own way to success. 
This is how we see the way to success. You can follow it, or not. You should understand that everybody have their own ways. You should realize what you really want and listen to your heart. But still never loose your face.
Thank you for your attention!
