Key Factors of Success
People who acquire more than one skill are more likely to become successful than people who just focus on one skill.
People should be open to new ideas and change their minds to be successful.
The first success factors that you can use to achieve the best life possible is simply skill. Malcolm Gladwell in his book Outliers: The Story of Success cites famous examples such as the Beatles and Bill Gates who spent at least 10,000 hours on their specific craft before achieving expert status. Devoting more time to a specific area will increase the proficiency in field of study. Your level of ability in your field will determine the quality and quantity of your results. The better you get at what you do, the easier it is for you to start moving forward to get a particular level of results. As you increase your skill, through study and experience, you get better and better at doing the small things that increase the speed and predictability of your results.
The third success factor for moving forward and achieving the best life is by developing an ever-widening circle of contacts. You will find that every major change in your life is accompanied by a person or persons who either opens or closes doors for you. The possibility of the best life for you will be determined by the number of people who know you and like you and who are willing to help you. In order to broaden your network of contacts, you must network continually, at every opportunity. There seems to be a direct relationship between the number of people you know and how successful you are.
