Success is one of the most desired outcomes of life and is something we all strive to achieve. Our perceptions of success, however, all vary. I personally believe success is when a self-designed goal which enhances your skills has been achieved through hard efforts - for example, delivering a presentation at a conference will improve your confidence, public speaking skills and even strengthen your network. Although I do not claim to have achieved total success, I would still like to share a prime strategy to accomplish so.

ONE: MAKE IT YOUR HOBBY
There are plenty of ways to do this - this is where your creativity is exercised. Sitting in a boring lecture? Network! You can connect with acquaintances on LinkedIn to build the likelihood of potential opportunities you may be presented with. Additionally, doing something you know will expand your skills such as blogging will benefit your career. Employers often take interest in my position as a Brookes Blogger as it demonstrates my communication skills. Alternatively, participate in Drama Society which shows an equal strength,

TWO: MARKET YOURSELF BY SHOWING YOUR ZEST
This is where my marketing degree plays to my advantage. Imagine a perceptual map, almost exploding with students reading the same degree all with similar results and previous work experience. You see, we are all more or less the same on paper. This is why we must fill that niche gap in the market by showing our zest. Zest is personality and by marketing this unique aspect about ourselves, we stand out and become superior to our competitors. 

THREE: NO PAIN, NO GAIN
The hardest step to achieve success is motivation. Extensive determination is required to form a strategy and accomplish it. It is certainly becoming increasingly difficult to do so, considering the human obstacles we encounter on our journeys, but this key element truly separates those who have a genuine passion for success and those who do not.



Success is a universally shared desire but achieving it is the challenge. Staying motivated to making it part of your daily routine (even if it is just through a connection on LinkedIn) and marketing your zest will certainly return satisfactory results.
