You will always have a goal or at least an idea of what you would want to achieve this year. Plan it out in detail, have a kind of to do list and keep ticking it off as and when you complete it. Do not skip any details thinking you would come back to it later. Focus on what you what to achieve with the utmost intensity and you would definitely get the success that you deserve this year.

- Hard work
Although being at the right place at the right time matters to be successful, most of your success will depends on how much hard work you put into it. You cannot become a successful writer or a singer by just writing one piece and hoping it would turn you into an overnight success story. You need to work on a lot of projects and keep meeting people and sending across your stuff. This is just one example, the thing is you need to keep at it if you want to be successful and it applies to all professions and aspects of life.
- Do not try and step on others to be successful, rather work with others
The success that you get while working together with other people is the best way to achieve success and this is the kind that will last for a long time. You can also rest and breathe easy when you have reached the top as you know for sure that you have not made any enemies out of the people you know. When you are nice to people and are open to help, people will not only root for your success but will also do their best to make sure that you are successful in life.
- Define success according to your terms and do not blindly follow others
Success could mean an entirely different thing for you from another person. Hence when you want to be successful in something, think if that is what you want in life before you start working towards it. Success could mean the top post for a colleague while it could mean a better salary and a less stressful job for you. Never measure your success with others. Everyone has a life that is their own with its inherent problems and pressures. Yours is your own and work on what is best for you. Never aim to be someone else.
- Do not be scared or be put down by failure
Just like success, failure is also a part of life that teaches you valuable lessons. Do not be discouraged if you fail in your endeavors. Rather, take this as an opportunity to learn from your mistakes and march ahead. When you are not scared of the failures in life, you will also have a nonchalant attitude about the success you get. This will make you level headed and also enjoy the success you have earned.
