Achieving your full potential…

I am no authority on Success Mantras , so this blog is not a shortcut recipe for a successful life :-). What i wanted to write today is what i have learnt from my experience of the past years from School, College and thereafter the Industry. What are pre-requisites if you want to be achieve your full potential (on the road to a successful life)in life. Lets not discuss what success means to each one of , i believe that everyone has an understanding of what success means to them and i think my thoughts are very generic to accommodate to any definition of success. So coming straight to the point.

#1. Good Health: I think this is the real number 1 pre req. Many a times we take our health for granted and when suddenly we fall sick (like my back problem of last year) we start realizing how important it is to take care of the gift of good health. In an earlier post last year i had written much about this. Actually I feel much better and alive throughout the day at office after i started my daily Gym Routine.

#2. Determination : Whatever is your definition of success and whatever you want to achieve, determination to see yourself through is more than a pre requisite. You must not fall down defeated, there will be tests and there will be failures. Opportunities will come in the form of adversity, you must just have the right determination that you have to do it. Trust me this is easier said than done.

#3. Good support system at home : This point is a little debatable and may not really mean the same to all of us.  But for the average family centered human being it is important to have the right Eco system at home where there is trust, love and understanding which really propels your determination to succeed.  It is also important to balance the time and attention towards the family to be able to live a life which is also more meaningful at the end of the day.

After reading these points some of you might ask , “What about Luck ? “. Well i feel that to have 1, 2 and 3 on your side is the real luck. Everything else you can achieve. Do you have other views from your experience ?
