How to be Successful in 100 Words

Less can be more

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

Do you really think success can be defined in 100 words?

Let’s try.

Success is not about money and success does not come easy, if it did everyone would be successful.

Cutting corners only hurts yourself.

Results take time.

Be patient and do things right the first time so you don’t have to do them again.

And if you fail, keep going till the job gets done.

A successful life means loving life. If you don’t, keep grinding.

The beauty of success is that everyone has their own definition.

Before you can accomplish anything, you must define success.

What are you waiting for?
