Take control of your fate
Secondly, take control of your own fate. Don't wait around for someone to land success into your lap. Things simply don't happen that way. Know your own capabilities and know your own limitations too. Seek help to mend the gaps where you know you may not have the abilities to succeed. Most importantly, you will find people who want to stand in your way on your path to success. Never let anyone tell you that you can't do it!
