Relevant For Students – Core Factors Of Success

It is highly imperative to understand that success does not happen by accident neither is it a matter of chance or luck nor is it obtain on a platter of gold. Everything happens for a reason and for every effect, there’s a specific cause.
Achievements, wealth, happiness, prosperity, business breakthroughs etc are all the direct and indirect effects of specific cause or actions.
Research and studies across the world have shown that successful people, groups of organization or businesses, understand certain factors of success and they apply them, thus achieving great success and becoming powerful forces to reckon with in their chosen field of endeavors. “you don’t jump into success but you grow into it”.
Some of these are the core factors success:-


Every great leap towards life is preceded by a clear decision and a commitment to action. All high achievers are decisive in their thinking and in their actions. They carefully decide exactly what to do concerning every issue and also take specific actions to turn their decisions into realities. Life pave ways for those whose minds are made up.


Things don’t move themselves in life and until we move, nothing moves. It is not just about having great vision and setting goals. It is mostly about taking giant steps to achieve the goals and vision. This is supported by the theory which states “all objects remain at a point of rest until when compelled to do otherwise by external factors acting on them”. A man of words and not of actions is like a garden full of weeds.


Adaptability is defined as the ability to adjust and cope with every challenge and turning them into opportunities. Success is best achieved when you are clear about your goals but creative about the processes of getting there. The most constant factor in life is change due to unforeseen circumstances. This may sometimes require changes in one’s plan and strategies but should never result to a change in goals and vision. Great achievers are flexible enough to cope and adapt to various circumstances and also able to navigate their ways through, still achieving desired results


Great achievers are men of integrity. They are consistent in their characters, their actions and words irrespective of things happening around them. They stand by their words and are very predictable. Integrity is about being honest with yourself, with men and God. It is not just being perfect but being perfectly honest.


To succeed personally, you must try to help others and add value to them. It is the beauty of life. Zig Zaglar said “you can get everything you want in life if you help other people to get what they want”. Turn your focus in life from yourself and start adding value to other people. Become a solution provider, be a problem solver and humanity will appreciate you for it.
These are some of the factors which have made people and organisations achieve outstanding feats. Watch out
It is of great importance not to keep still. Whenever you are faced with challenges, speak out, so that solutions will be preferred to your problem. Remember a problem shared is half solved. Agitating with violence does not result in anything positive but destruction.
