Being successful is not simple because no one possesses a natural gift of a certain job it is because the targeted natural gifts don’t even exist which makes no one a born chess master or a CEO of a company. Greatness is achieved only through and enormous amount of hard work and it is not just any kind of hard work, it is highly demanded and painful. When we see people becoming successful under the age of thirty, we assume that they might possess some greatest natural gifts. But in reality, there are some practices that they adapt to keep themselves motivated and energized.

According to the founder of the startup Buenos Aries, Lisa Besserman, the secret of being successful lies in the fact that how flexible you are. Entrepreneurs adopt different methods that lead them towards success but the most important quality is having the ability to embrace the unexpected. Addressing the unexpected turns in life allows you to become a successful entrepreneur.

When people are young, they get stuck into one industry because of their desire to prove themselves right that they are ambitious and can do hard work. but according to the managing partner of DraperDarkFlow, Toro Oreo, going outside your industry and doing deep research can help you develop radically new insights as well as potentially revolutionary perspectives.
Entrepreneurship is a journey:
Many people think entrepreneurship as the success point but according to the partner of Everybody Eats Company Brandon Norman, it is only a process. The end results keep people so much engaged that they forget to enjoy the small victories along the way. At the end of the day, all that matters is the journey you took towards entrepreneurship.
A good mentor:
Many people like to strive on their own, but with the presence of a good mentor the process becomes much easier. It may be your own ideas but they get sharpened with the advice that comes from the mentor. No matter how busy your schedule is, you need to find time for your mentor. This is the most important investment you can make for yourself.
Take a break:

According to the analyst Ana Sacnhez, the lack of unplugging from lives can diminish productivity. Therefore, for being successful at anything requires you to hit the pause buttons on daily basis to help reenergize your body.
Don’t react to the world:
According to the brand manager of Nike, Kerhyl Gantt, if you truly want to be successful then you will have to become comfortable by allowing the world to react to you versus you react to the world. This means that in order to lead you cannot give anyone that much power over you.
