The Real Fouz: Es­sen­tial fac­tors for suc­cess

Kuwait Times - - FRONT PAGE -

Re­la­tion­ships in life are what keep you go­ing, whether it is was friends, part­ner or lover, each and ev­ery re­la­tion­ship you’re a part of is com­pletely dif­fer­ent than the other, de­pend­ing on the per­son you are deal­ing with. Peo­ple who en­cour­age and cheer you on are the type of peo­ple you want to keep around

you. They enjoy watch­ing you grow and bloom, how­ever, oth­ers might enjoy watch­ing you be de­stroyed. What’s scary about this is that the peo­ple who enjoy watch­ing you break down some­times seem nicer to you than the peo­ple who want to see you suc­ceed.

Nowa­days, its ex­tremely dif­fi­cult to com­pletely trust some­one with your life or be one hun­dred per­cent your­self with some­one. You hear all th­ese hor­ri­ble and sad be­trayal sto­ries and all about the ideal couple go­ing through an ugly di­vorce. I feel like a per­son can make a ma­ture and ac­cu­rate de­ci­sion once they’ve fully ma­tured and ex­pe­ri­enced life. Some­times, you need to be bro­ken in or­der to grow and be­come a bet­ter per­son, and this is not only for your per­sonal life, but also for your work life and ca­reer. Once you’ve loved and ed­u­cated your­self, you can make bet­ter de­ci­sions.

Ex­pe­ri­enc­ing life and meet­ing new peo­ple from dif­fer­ent back­grounds can give you an in­cred­i­ble out­look in life. If you’re around the same peo­ple or the same type of peo­ple all of your life then it’s time for a change. Ap­pre­ci­at­ing and ac­cept­ing “dif­fer­ent” peo­ple is al­ways a hum­bling and eye-open­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Travel, meet new peo­ple, lis­ten to their life sto­ries and their strug­gles, it makes you ap­pre­ci­ate what you al­ready have and also en­cour­ages you to get what you feel is miss­ing in your life.

Suc­cess­ful peo­ple

Ed­u­ca­tion plays a vi­tal role in build­ing your per­son­al­ity and char­ac­ter, and it’s not only done by read­ing books. Ex­pe­ri­enc­ing dif­fer­ent jobs and po­si­tion­ing is also ed­u­ca­tion as you learn more about your field and the prob­lems you might en­counter along the way. The most suc­cess­ful peo­ple in their fields are the peo­ple who’ve started from the bot­tom and worked their way up to the top. Suc­cess­ful never comes with­out hard work and con­sis­tency, but first, you must find your­self and your gen­uine pas­sion. Ask your­self, what do I love? Who do I want to be? What do I want to be re­mem­bered for? Keep in mind the an­swers to your ques­tions don’t nec­es­sar­ily have to be the pres­i­dent of a coun­try nor a good will am­bas­sador! It can be as sim­ple as be­ing a vol­un­teer at a shel­ter, a nu­tri­tion­ist, an artist, any­thing your heart truly loves.

If you’re sur­rounded by peo­ple who don’t have much go­ing on in their lives, and tend to bring you down for dream­ing big then for you to ac­tu­ally ac­com­plish your dreams you need to let go of th­ese neg­a­tive peo­ple. Many peo­ple have so much po­ten­tial but are dragged down be­cause of who they de­cide to be around, that could be your hus­band/wife, part­ner, friend, col­league, who­ever it is that you have in your life should want to see you do bet­ter and suc­ceed. Th­ese peo­ple need to love you for your first and fore­most then for any other rea­son.

Never ac­cept any­thing less for your­self than what you give for oth­ers. You set the tone of your life and the only fac­tor stand­ing be­tween your­self and suc­cess is you. Your brain is much more pow­er­ful than you know. Use it wisely.
