v First you must believe in yourself and your ability to succeed. Without believing in yourself you have already lose the race. In everything you do you should exude a high level of self-confidence.
v Work Hard and be very discipline. Success do not come overnight, you must work hard for it and be discipline. Without these two, it is almost impossible for you to be successful. It won't be easy, but it can be done. As the famous quote goes, "Heights of great men reached and kept were never attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, kept toiling onward through the night."
v Balance your life. It is important that we remember that even as we work hard we should take some time to have fun. There is time for everything, set a time to have fun and never neglect your family and friends. It is also important to remember that we should get the work done first, and then have fun.
v Have good manners. As individual we should always show respect to other persons and distinguished ourselves as ladies and gentleman. As a famous Jamaican proverbs goes, "Manners carry you through the world and back without a penny."
v Take time to educate yourself and become qualified. Never assume that you learn as much and that your job is safe. In this global economy in order for anyone to succeed they must have the necessary tools to be successful, and that include having an education.
v Never forget where you're coming from. Many persons in life after they have achieved some status they neglect or 'bad mouth' where they are coming from and often times, their family. This is a sure recipe for failure in the future as the same ones you talk badly about now can be the one who rescue you in the long run.
