Success rarely occurs in a vacuum. Recognize people who help you become successful, there are plenty of them.
6. It takes a lot of luck to be successful.
It takes some luck to be successful, sure. It takes a lot more hard work, diligence, knowledge, and application.
7. It's only success if you make a lot of money.
Money is just one of many benefits to success, but it's not guaranteed.
8. It's only success if everybody knows it.
You may get more money and more accolades more people know about what you've done. But, even if you were only one who knew it, you'd still be a success.
9. Success is a goal.
Success is more what you get when you achieve goals you've set for yourself. Saying that you "want to be a success" begs question: "At what?"
10. Once I'm successful, my troubles are over.
You may be successful, but you're not God. You'll still have ups and downs that you did before. Enjoy what success you achieve and live each day as it comes.
