There is a lot of books and theories about how to be successful, I read books about that topic a lot, but I've came to a conclusion that road to success is simpler than this and its equation revolve around two words only. Once we get this equation and believe it, success would fall right at our feet.
EFFORT = REWARD. This is the equation, no more and no less. Simply, the amount of effort you put into something, is the same amount of reward/ success you would receive from it. The biggest the effort, the biggest the reward and the higher the success.
There is no such thing as luck in my book, there is only effort and work. No one that is successful in any business just woke up one day being successful, but you would find that he put a lot of effort in what he did till he reached success. I like to believe this, because by believing this I would work hard to reach my dreams. By believing this I believe that I can do anything I set my mind to achieve. By believing this you would live your life with peaceful hard that there is only justice in the universe.
