Here’s a wake-up call: success isn’t easy. 

The ingredients for success are there, but the struggle is real, and it doesn’t stop just because you have a few accolades or a decent following.

 Successful people don’t have shorter lives, they have just as much stress as the rest of us.

 In this article, I want to describe to you what it takes to become successful and what that requires from you.

Knowing the path to success

There are a few ingredients for success: hard work, patience, perseverance, dedication and passion. 

Those are the things you need to go after your dream job or project, 

to take care of your family’s future or simply to earn enough money to pay the bills. 

There are many qualities that help you succeed in life, but what does it actually mean? 

The word “success” is very general and vague. It means different things for different people.

What is success? To get there you’ll have to go through the hard times and the good times. 

How do I know that? Because I’ve been down that road before.

I remember the first time I received my first paycheck. 

I was 19 years old and I was living in a room with my parents in an extremely poor neighborhood. 

My parents were still in school and didn’t have much money to pay for food or other things that kids need to survive.

 So, when I got paid for the first time, if you know anything about teenagers, it was a very big deal! 

For me, it was an achievement so big that it took me decades to realize that 

if you want to be successful at something, you have to start by being successful at something else.

From there on, everything shifted and changed forever..

. And here we are now. I am a freelancer working with companies, agencies and media companies all over the world. 

No one can ever take that from me, I’ve earned it. 

I have achieved what I wanted to, and I’ve been extremely lucky to meet amazing people along the way.

 For those who are reading this article, don’t be discouraged by the difference in life expectancy of those who aren’t as fortunate as you are.

Success doesn’t stop just because you have a few accolades or a decent following

What is success? Success isn’t easy – it’s hard – but for some people it comes naturally 

 they have passion and persistence. If you want to get there, you need to be willing to do what it takes. 

Don’t get discouraged if you haven’t made it yet,

 don’t think that the only way out of poverty is to start at the bottom and work your way up.

 If you simply keep going down the ladder, you’ll never have a chance of reaching success. 

The path is difficult but not impossible. 

It will take time and patience, but if you know in your heart that this is what is right for you, then you can do it. 

With this blog, I want to offer you my experience, which will hopefully help you see things in a different way.

The struggle is real

Let’s be honest here. Not everyone can achieve success without putting in hours of hard work. 

Even if everyone is gifted with the qualities they need to succeed in life, not everyone tries hard enough to get there.

 People can give up at any point along the way in life’s journey,

 and that is why some people are successful and others are unsuccessful or stuck somewhere in between.

 Those who succeed do so because they have persistence. They are willing to continue despite the odds. 

On the other hand, those who are unsuccessful often stop before they’re finished.

What is success? Some people have great ideas or passion for their projects when they start them, 

but when it comes time to put in the real work it can be too much for them to handle alone. 

Others have enough passion and drive to get things done, but are scared of failing in front of others. 

Others yet see it as an opportunity to fail in front of others, which is also a sure sign that something isn’t quite right with them. 

They start out with enthusiasm but soon give up once they find out that their idea is unrealistic or impractical in some way.

The truth is, success isn’t easy.

 At some point, you have to go through some dark times to get there. If you want to be successful at something, 

it’s not just about having a good idea or being passionate about it.

 You have to have the drive and perseverance to keep going despite all the failures that are bound to happen along the way. 

That’s what separates people who are successful from those who aren’t.
