Many of the greatest minds of any generation have spent whatever time they have left after their achievements desperately pursuing the keys to success. Having achieved such great things, they now sought to share the secret of their success with the world. After reviewing and disproving many theories in this regard, many have given up without finding a true answer. Others have allowed themselves to believe that the secret to success lies in the cards we are dealt or the opportunities we are given. Still others are of the opinion that genetics will determine one's success. But the truth is that none of us are born to be ordinary and people with similar upbringings often enjoy the same level of success.
What happy parents look down on their newborn child and imagine that they are just normal or doing enough to get by?
None in their right mind, of course. We all imagine the great things our children will do, say and achieve from before they are conceived.
And when those children are born, we do everything we can to give them the best possible start to what we hope will be a successful life. Some of these children will be born to parents of great wealth, while others will struggle with extremely limited financial resources. But no one knows for sure which of them will succeed. So what really is the key to success? Motivation.
