We all want to experience success in whatever we undertake to do.

We want success in studies, careers, business, relationships, and all aspects of life.

It is natural to aim for success.

But very often we try to reach there by hit-and-miss methods.

There are some principles or keys that will assuredly take us on the path to success.

Let us learn 10 such keys to phenomenal success in life.

1. Always Challenge Yourself

To be successful, there should be challenges in life.

It could be goals that seem unattainable.

It could be doing something that you are not comfortable doing.

Anything that is a challenge to you, holds the key to your success when you face it and overcome it.

I never did anything worth doing by accident, nor did any of my inventions come indirectly through accident, except the phonograph. No, when I have fully decided that a result is worth getting, I go about it, and make trial after trial, until it comes.

Thomas Edison

2. Believe In Yourself

No successful person has ever achieved success without first believing in himself or herself.

Self-belief is absolutely a must in order to see massive success in life.

If you don't believe in yourself, it will act as a hindrance to accomplishing your goals.

Self-belief is nothing but believing in your own abilities, skills, and experience.

In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can

Nikos Kazantzakis

3. Don’t Waste Time

4. Don’t Be Afraid of Change

Success entails is the ability to change and to change fast.

Humans too have learned one thing over the centuries of their existence - change is inevitable.

Develop this habit of being open to change and success is yours.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world.

6. Work Hard

Achievers are people who work very hard to achieve their goals.

Laziness has no place in their lives. They will do anything it takes to attain their goals.

Ask any successful person about this and they will all testify to this truth.

No pain no gain goes a famous saying.

It all starts with a dream but then it has to be backed up with lots of hard work.

That’s when they see the fruit of their labor.

Athletes have to train hard for almost 6 to 8 hours daily to keep in good shape and succeed at their sports.

The same holds true in business.

People succeed in business after working very hard for years.

Big brands did not make a name overnight. It took years of sweat, tears, and hard work to achieve that.

Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.

Jim Rohn

7. Accept That Failure is Inevitable

Successful people believe that failure is a stepping stone to success.

Failures are a normal part of the process.

Successful people have embraced the fact that they will fail on their way toward success.

Many great people experienced many failures before tasting success.

The world-famous scientist, Albert Einstein, conducted hundreds of experiments before he found out E=MC2.

“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”

Anything other than that is of no interest to them. They avoid unproductive activities.

“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.”

John D. Rockefeller
