4 Things I had to Learn to be Closer to Success

 Life doesn't offer a perfect path to success or one's career. As fresh university graduates, we may have had high hopes and expectations about how our future careers would unfold. However, the reality is that success is not a linear journey. We may have worked hard in school, but still, struggle to find a good job offer. Even if we have perfect grades, tons of internship experience, and a long list of certifications, our dream jobs may not be available due to various reasons.

Sometimes, we may have to settle for a position outside our field of interest to gain the necessary experience. As we progress in our careers, we might experience roadblocks such as unsupportive colleagues or a lack of job promotions. We might also discover that the work we thought we would love doesn't interest us anymore, and we want to explore new opportunities.

No amount of research can prepare us for the twists and turns that life throws our way. Industries are everchanging, and opportunities come and go. Therefore, success is not just about hard work but involves some element of luck and being open to new experiences. We need to be adaptable to changes and take any opportunity that comes our way because we never know where it might lead us in our careers.

Here are four things that can help you achieve success and enjoy the process, regardless of your age. 

1. Learn to love learning and embrace life's challenges. Your job or past experiences have taught you valuable skills that can guide you toward your next career move.

2. Invest your time and low-pay income in courses, training, and resources that will expand your knowledge and skill set. Follow and connect with people who can provide positive support and inspiration.

3. Learn to connect with successful individuals beyond their façade. Approach them with curiosity, empathy, and a willingness to learn. These small conversations can teach you valuable skills, such as negotiating in job interviews and understanding job requirements.

4. Prioritize self-care, including physical exercise, healthy eating habits, and mental well-being. Develop a routine that helps you balance your personal and professional life, and don't be afraid to ask for help when needed.

In order to love, grow, and connect with others, it is important to learn how to accept things in life. This means acknowledging both the positive and negative aspects of your job or life situation, recognizing your own weaknesses and how to improve them, and accepting any difficulties and setbacks you may face along the way. While it is understandable to feel angry or jealous at times, it is important not to let these emotions hold you back from achieving success. By accepting your struggles and seeking help when needed, you can open yourself up to new opportunities and connections that may help you achieve your goals. Remember that many successful people have experienced similar setbacks and tough times, and accepting your own challenges can help you grow and ultimately achieve success.
