Causes of Success
One of the most fundamental causes of success is developing the way in which a person looks at tasks. In this regard, a person may look at a task as a way of preventing loss or getting promotion (Halvorson para. 5). Due to these perspectives, it is easy to accomplish the tasks with vigour and motivation because they pressure the individual to make the desired accomplishments. The second cause of success is the clear stipulation of goals and writing them down. Having written the goals, the person should develop the willingness to take responsibility of the tasks required (Strategies for Academic Success Para. 2). However, the individuals must increase their levels of motivation during work in order to ensure success. Importantly, too, the willingness to embrace risk rather than avoiding it is seen as a fundamental cause of success (Halvorson 1). Besides these, the figure below shows an analysis of the degree to which some other factors lead to success.
Effects of Success
As a result, success brings happiness in life as one of the most critical effects although this satisfaction does not rely entirely on success. In addition, it increases the individual resilience to challenges since it has been indicated that the way to success involves the elimination of laxity and increase of commitment. Also, it is evident that success leads to the ultimate shaping of personality and character because the cause of success requires transformation in the first place. Importantly, it cannot be disputed that success makes people to be respected in the society. This increases the self-esteem and the confidence of such successful persons. As such, success is an important ingredient when it comes to character building, leading a happy life and increasing ones social status in the society.
