I found three keys for success in life from my own experience. I failed in many areas of life because I had not known those keys. The keys to success are not limited by just three and I believe there are many more to explore.
I passed my graduation with low marks and so I didn't get a good job. I decided to support myself with a teacher job which I like the most. I went to a place near India-China border and I worked as a high school teacher. I taught Maths and Science. My students are oriental people but they liked me and their love touched me a lot. I found out that my students are very weak in Maths and good in English while I am good in Maths and very poor in English. The School Principal and parents had encouraged me to punish the students but I didn't punish them lest they might lose interest in the subject. Since I didn't punish them they liked me a lot. I often encourage my students to work hard in maths. When giving repeated advice to my students I found my first key for success. The key to success is hard work or diligence. After finding this key I decided to study ACCA which is a Britain examination that creates professional accountants.
I went back to my home and I started to study ACCA. Some relatives told me that this examination is for brilliant students. They were indirectly telling me that ACCA is not for me because I am just an average student. They say that because of my past. I have a key with me and so I was confident to face this exam. I worked hard and I passed Foundational papers in my first attempt. Some family friends told my parents that I won't pass final papers.It is very normal in my society to speak such negative words. In my opinion, such negative words are cruel and so I never do it. ACCA has two level. First is foundational level and then the Final papers. Foundational exams prepare us for facing the final level. I chose one of the final paper and worked hard but this subject was very boring for me and I was not really interested in studying it. I wrote the exam and I failed. I felt miserable and lost. I worked so hard yet I failed and a fear ruled my heart. I quit ACCA but after one year Jesus, my lord, asked me to write it again. So, I decided to face it again. When I was studying it some doubts arose in my mind and I started to refer extra materials from the Internet to clear my doubts. As I was clearing my doubts I found this subject very interesting and I really worked hard with pleasure. I wrote the exam and I passed. I rejoiced and I even celebrated that day. I found my second key. Delight is the second key. A person should like the work that he does and only then he will delight in it thus produce a positive result.
I was thinking one day why some people are so lazy and why some people never rise above a particular level. I thought a lot about it. I found the key reason. Such people don't have a vision or dream. They just think of survival and they are satisfied with the level they reached. Thus I explored my third key and it is dream. A person with a dream will put efforts to reach there and he will find the work delightful even if the work is tough on him .Once he find delight, it would make him work hard. Bible says 'My people perish for lack of vision'. People who don't carry a dream or vision are the laziest people. They would not rise above a level in their skill. After preparing for ACCA I found that my skills have improved considerably.
With these three keys, I can conquer the English language which was my nightmare. I am so confident that I can improve my English and can be successful. Dream, delight, diligence are three keys that I found. I found another theory. Instead of telling a person to work hard I should give him a dream. Once he has a burning desire for achieving that dream he would find delight in the work and then be diligent in the work. I would say 'Dream' is the root key and then come other keys.
