My Secret of Success

Posted on: April 17, 2016

Previously, it was always confusing to me everytime someone asked me the secret behind my success. It was flattering that people thought I had succeeded with my career, but seriously, was there any secret that took me there?

I mean, I know that I work hard. Very hard. But so many others do! I also know how knowledgeable I can be, but still I am not the smartest people in this field. I know a few other people way smarter than me. I still have a lot of things to learn but somehow my career has been growing so fast. Being a VP before 30 is honestly beyond my wildest dream.

I was confused with myself until a few weeks ago. I had a long chat over lunch with a colleague that made me realize one important thing that has taken me to my career achievements. I finally found out my kind of secret of success. It’s nothing huge, it’s only a courage that I have inside.

Since my very first day at work, I’ve been having a courage to start something new and take the risk. I never let my doubts consume me. I never let my insecurities stop me. I fake it, I learn, until I finally make it.

I always have a courage to speak up my mind. I tell people what I want, my expectation, and my plan for me to get there. I’m not afraid of having unpleasant conversation whenever I know it’s necessary. I let people know how I feel and even let them know what I think of them right on their faces.

I also have the courage to do what I believe is right. I’ll fight for it until either I succeed and enjoy the victory or I fail and learn from it. Again, I’m a risk taker; I’m not afraid of making a decision, I’m not afraid of making mistakes.

I never let myself to lose courage even when it comes to the most difficult people at work. I should not be afraid of anyone, we’re all only a human anyway. I may be terribly scared inside, but again, I never let my fear prevent me from doing my job.

And then finally, I always have the courage to admit that I’m not perfect. I never run and hide everytime I make a bad mistake. I will say I am wrong, I am sorry, and I will do everything it takes to make things right.

So there I would say that the secret behind my success is simply my courage. From courage will come a confidence. Just do it even when you don’t know if you can do it! And then it will give you more chances to take, more challenges to conquer, more things to learn, until finally, more victories to celebrate! Believe me when I say, your courage will take you to the places you’ve never seen. You will never know until you try!

Have courage and wish you a wonderful week ahead!

Life took me to many unimaginable people. The super kind, the selfless, the brave men, and of course, the mean and rude people, cheaters, liars, hypocrites, extremely arrogant, and all other qualities that got me thinking, “I never thought such people like these do exist!”
But I’ve also come to learn that sometimes, there is a bright side of the darkest people I know. They’re not always good, but they’re not always bad either.
At the end of the day, it helps me to define the people I can bear and the people I can’t stand. And most importantly, it helps me to decide the person I would like to become. I’m not a funny person. I’m not good at mingle with random people. I’m fierce, I’m a straight-talker, I get annoyed easily, and I have this resting b face that makes me look angry all the times. I’m not that kind of person whom people would miss when I’m not around.
But you know what?
I’m okay with all that flaws I have in me. Nobody is perfect, and neither am I. At the same time; everyone on earth is special, and so am I.
I know my worth. I know what I’m very good at. I know what I want and I work hard to make it happen. I’m a go getter and I fight my battles. I’m not an angel, but I’m not a devil either.
I was born to be the very best of myself, and just because I don’t always have what others have, it doens’t make me less as a person inside out. I’m whole just the way I am, and I’m beyond grateful of all that. I know that my career has been a bit of trouble for my personal life. I admit that it feels like a loss to me sometimes, but you know what? I don’t feel sorry about all that, not a even just a little bit.
My career has given me a comfort bed to sleep, taken me to the places I’ve never seen, brought me to the incredible people who end up as my best friends, and most importantly, it has really made my parents proud. I can sleep tight at night knowing that at least, I can support my parents after their retirements.
The way I see it, there’s nothing bad about all that, so why should anybody in my position feel sorry and less proud about their own hard works?
Don’t let anybody make you feel less than who you are. Make yourself and your loved ones proud, and for me, the rest doesn’t matter at all.
Be great, women! Whatever you choose to do for your own life, be great at it and don’t feel sorry for anything good in your life! Happy International Women’s day and stay awesome!
