I remember reading the following 3 rules for success somewhere (which I don’t remember). I am calling them 3 rules for getting ahead because success is a complicated topic beyond the simplistic explanations of motivational speakers.
- Choose something you are naturally good at. Otherwise, you will be constrained by biological and physical boundaries which will not allow you get anywhere.
- Choose something you are passionate about. Otherwise, you will not put enough effort that is usually required to succeed.
- Choose something people care about. Otherwise, all the hard work resulting from your talent and your passion will not translate into financial gains.
