Keep searching for it. Make mistakes and learn from them. Read books to learn even more from other people’s failures.

Whatever kind of success you’re looking for, don’t stop until you’ve cracked the code.

When you feel stuck, don't blame your bad luck, the economy, your fate or other people. These things have nothing to do with you unhappiness,

You must find the patterns in whatever you’re trying to achieve.

RELATED IDEAS

We liken success to sports, exams or battles that have winners and losers, and that have an end. However, success means having the stamina to keep going.

There might be many people who are more talented than you are. What will make you successful in starting a business, building a popular blog or writing a book is how long you can keep on trying.

IDEAS

Life is a competition

We are all in competition, even if we prefer to discount it. Our achievements are only evident relative to others. You swam further, dance better, or got more Facebook Likes. 

We should recognize that there is competition going on. People interview to win jobs. And the best is only available to those who are willing to compete and fight for it.

Happiness and struggle
Consider the question: What are you willing to struggle for? Because that seems to be a greater determinant of how our lives turn out. Happiness requires struggle. The positive is the side effect of handling the negative. You can only avoid negative experiences for so long before they come roaring back to life.
