    If you look at success as an end result, you will not see prosperity until you achieve your target goals and objectives.

    The first point is interesting. Generally, there are a lot of benefits to listening. However, there are a lot of instances where listening needs to take a backseat, especially when you're trying to market something (be it a product, proposition, etc.)

    The above 5 points will definitely make you successful. On top of that remember that success in everything begins with careful planning and preparation

    Nice list! I would like to add -

    When possible, earn money doing what you love to do. This puts passion behind your efforts and makes the work more meaningful. Passion is a tremendous driver.

    Those are some really good tips, I myself have tried those myself and they seemed to work OK. So they can work for all of those that have not tried them before.

    Good tips. I believe to be no. 1, we should do more action than listen or talk.

    These are good. Also add .. Set targets with times you are aiming to complete them. If you don't have well-defined goals it's hard to succeed in reaching them.

    Success is a very relative term. Though there are no sure short tips to success, the above tips will definitely give you happiness.
    Always follow your instinct and work hard.
    Believe in yourself.
    Be positive!

    Thank-you all,

    The basic point of success is never loosing hope and never giving up your goals/ambition.

    Best of luck for that!

    I believed that the 5 points is good for the life but it is too general when talk about success

    I respect your point of view, but I believe these points help in character building and creating self belief ... which leads you to success eventually. I know it's not like a packet of chips that you go and buy it, success is earned over a period of time.

    Well I would really like to hear more from you on success! Please do share what you think can help us in being successful.

    Thank-you!

    I think success in life includes at least two major aspects: Career success and personal success. TimB's five points sound all good for both. But I also think Sigma had a point, for career success, there might be more specific skills needed. For personal success (family and social relations, internal peace and wellbeing, etc.), yes, building characters is especially important. I would also like to add: Intentionally cultivate happiness... That is from the point of view of my own profession (i.e., positive psychology, or the "science of happiness" :)

    I would retool #5: "If failure, rip it up and start again."

    What the idea of failure REALLY needs, and the way that some of the most successful people deal with it, is a complete reframe. There is no such thing as failure, instead, it is only learning what doesn't work. The most successful people are not successful because they have failed less, they are successful because they don't allow it to stop them. Because they learn from their mistakes, and never repeat the same one twice. Every time you don't succeed, you eliminate one strategy that doesn't work, and you learn something that will help you succeed. THEREFORE, you must learn something from each attempt in which you do not succeed, and it brings you that much closer to the success that you seek. Take from each attempt a LESSON, and valuable EXPERIENCE, and use those to bring you greater SUCCESS. Like Sherlock Holmes said, "Eliminate the impossible, and whatever is left, however improbable, must be the truth." Let your attempts inform you in this way. Each attempt eliminates one possible strategy that did not work, and in the end you will be left with the true way to succeed. :)

    • If you are going to do something, do it well
    • Don't make commitments you can't keep
    • Inaction+Excuse does not equal Action
    • Don't just do things because others are doing it
    • Don't be afraid to ask for things- The worst that can happen is they tell you "no"
