Setting up a "Road Map" "A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work." -Colin Powell... Which brings me into my first point ... "Success doesn't come to you, you go to it." -Marva Collins Success is when you work hard at something that matters to you. It's when you have grit and you're a hard worker. Success is when you stick it out when times get though, when everyone's given up you stick with it to achieve your goal. Work Cited... Success Presentation... If you work hard and practice a lot at what you are passionate about success will come easily. Grit and a "road map" will also help you achieve your future and your success. Grit According to Abby Kirchner, a Grinnell High School Senior, the main key to success is setting up a plan to get to your goal. If you don't stick to your plan you could end up going a completely different way or getting off track. If you get off track you will not achieve your future or your success. Success is when you work hard at something that matters to you. It's when you have grit and you're a hard worker. Success is when you stick it out when things get tough, when everyone else has given up you stick with it. Success is the accomplishment of aim or purpose. A person or a thing that achieves desired aims. Practice/Hard Work Malcolm Gladwell, an author, speaker, and journalist, states that if you practice for 10,000 hours you will be more successful with what you are doing rather than the person who doesn't practice for 10,000 hours. If you put all your will and power into what you are doing you will become more successful that the person who only gives half their power and will. Thank you! Having grit will help you be more successful. According to Angela Duckworth, an american psychologist and a popular science author, grit means that you have passion, stamina and you stick to your future. If you have grit and passion you will have a successful future. Your grit can be changed. If you do something you love, and give it your all, you will succeed. If you stick with it and never give up you will get further that the person who is in it for the experience, not the future.
