What does it take to be Successful?

Here’s the thing, success means different things to different people. For some, it could be creating a £Billion company; for others it could be raising a family; or becoming a doctor that makes a difference to the world; or being an athelete.

The first step is to define what success means to you.

Then secondly, go about achieving your goals with absolute focus. Act from a place of real passion and that will sustain you when the going gets rough.

If you’re not happy with your life as it is, then you have the power to change it.

However, changing your life is NOT easy. It will involve blood, sweat and tears; and it may well mean that you have to start from scratch – retrain in a new career and take a salary cut. If you want something badly enough, then you can make it happen.

Save every scrap of money that you have, make sacrifices (holidays, going out etc), continuously improve upon your learning (not just in the context of taking medical exams).


Personally, I am in an ongoing process of changing my life, so I am the first to admit just how hard it is.

I like to draw on inspirational videos and quotes when I am feeling like I could do with a boost and so I leave you with this quote and video to enjoy.

When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, then you’ll be successful
