Do you want to achieve success in your career? Do you want to make a difference in the world? If so, you need to have the 4 R’s:
👩🎓 Become the RIGHT PERSON – you can become an expert in your chosen field provided you have invested at least 10,000 hours of practise according to Malcom Gladwell in his bestseller “Outliers: The Story of Success”.
🌍 Be in the RIGHT PLACE. Bill Gates once joked that he was extremely lucky to be born in America. If he was born in Africa, he was confident he would have become the richest man in Africa instead!
⭐ Have the RIGHT PEOPLE supporting you – it’s impossible to do everything on your own. You need to find and work with other like-minded people who can complement your strengths and weaknesses.
🕑 RIGHT TIMING – this has a bit to do with luck and is not within your control. However, I believe the harder and longer you work at something, you will eventually get lucky. Afterall, luck is when preparation meets opportunity.
Other factors that contribute to success?
Success is also about grit, determination, and never giving up. It’s about taking risks and stepping outside of your comfort zone. And it’s about continuously learning and growing. 💪
