The Secrets to Success

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
Colin Powell

Whether we’re learning to play chess or learning a language, achieving our goals rarely happens by accident.

We might see other people succeeding, but we have no idea how much preparation and hard work went into their success.

And the only way to become successful in any area of life is to be prepared to make mistakes. It’s what we do after making those mistakes that counts.

If we’re worried about making mistakes, we’ll never get to speak a language. It’s only by making mistakes that we can improve.

So let’s approach failure positively—as a  way of learning. 

Here’s to your success!
