They meet multitudinous people and make numerous contacts increasing their odds to meet a soulmate, get a good business opportunity or find something interesting. It’s never the luck, it’s the hard work and the zeal that they put into, that finally pays off. It is one’s willpower, spirit of conquest, want of moving forward and the character to never lose momentum that gets them success.

2. Never stop learning.

If you think this is not how it is, then check out and compare your story to the story of people who are on a war with fatal diseases but are still hanging on to the hopes of life by finding new reasons to survive every other day.

4. Adore the present!

Don’t dwell on the past. No matter how tightly you hold on, it already gone. Never whine about how things were better and now, they are just worse or it will get better in the future. Live the present, to the fullest. Because, it is never coming back and whatever you do today, it is gonna affect your future. So, why not be happy and do great things? It is the rule of happiness that it is always in the present. You just need to find it! You should always glean from the mistakes you made in the past and ameliorate. A renowned French philosopher said, “There is no point in hoping for what one doesn’t have without enjoying what one does have.”
