Road to Success

“Success” has a different meaning for different people. It might mean wisdom, money, recognition, fame and so on. In my opinion success denotes achieving one’s goals. Thus anyone can be successful. Anyone can achieve their aim. Anyone can walk on the road to success. There is no secret of success. Nobody is born successful. Its the qualities and skills which make a person successful.

Now here is a test to check your direction on your road to success. In the end it will also suggest where to improve, in order to increase your chances of being successful. So lets begin –

1. Are you passionate about something ?

Do you like doing something, without which your existence is meaningless ? Is there some skill or hobby which you love doing ? Do you have a goal to achieve in life ? Is there something which you would happily do even if you are woken at midnight ?

If yes goto page 2 otherwise goto page 3.
