The Secret of Success
We are born to work. We must achieve something great in a limited time. This is our duty - a duty that every man or woman should bear. But what should we do in order to achieve success. If you want to be successful in your work, you must take this rule: one thing at a time. Indeed, this is a rule for anybody to follow. Some people are too ambitious. They want to do this and they want to do that. They want to do many things at one time, with the result that they accomplish nothing at all. Others are too idle. They do not know the value of time and they always put off until tomorrow what they should do today. They often say that they will do something by and by. In fact, they never do it. Neither of these two classes of people can ever succeeded in any sense of the word. So let us do one thing at a time, if we want to succeed in our work.

Thrift - There are many proverbs which set forth the advantages of thrift. We should never impair any thing that is useful. Besides, we should always strive to save a portion of our earnings for "rainy days".
No great work can be performed and no high position can be attained without toil and effort. We envy famous men and imagine their histories; we find that it is long years of patient toil and constant effort that have brought about their success. Just as we cannot reach the top of a mountain without climbing, we cannot achieve success with effort and hard work. A strong will is a importance to make our careers more successful, we must first insist to be successful before we take up the work. The secret of the success of great men is that while often people were idling, they were climbing.

My Personal Search for a Meaningful ExistenceMy Personal Search for a Meaningful Existence I am the representative embodiment of my nihilistic culture. I am narcissistic, insatiable, petty, apathetic and I am above all an emotional invalid.

There exis
