Markers of Success— Understanding the Successful From the Unsuccessful

It is difficult to formulate an equation for success or draw an ideal image of the successful man or woman. It is also not possible to determine parameters to judge the success of a particular person by. There can however be a few points of difference noticed in attitude and work ethics of those that succeed and those that do not.

Everything is becoming too instantaneous in this world these days, with the advancement of technology. Things like instant coffee, instant food, instant relationships, instant credit and what not?. Gone are the days where you order for something and wait patiently for weeks or months before you could actually lay your hands on it. The more instantaneous everything in life becomes, the more humongous is the trouble that comes along with it.

Facing the truth is hard but something you need to do to succeed
