Define success personally, then professionally.
Be autonomous. Autonomy means having a strong sense of self – and with that comes purpose, commitment and drive. Autonomy is the key to self-esteem and self-worth and they determine our mental receptivity, emotional balance and our beliefs. If we have a strong desire and a deliberate intent, a clear direction and a steady pace, timely actions and supportive behaviours, positive outcomes transpire.
I think most wealthy people have a strong sense of self. Confidence, competencies and successful careers are the prize.
