Regardless how big your goals are, believing that you can achieve them is crucial. You might not know how to go about it but that is a start. Once you do so, you got to be strategic. Do not let the stories of luck, chance or coincidence that you hear at the beginning of success stories fill your head with similar hopes. If you really want to achieve your goals, you need to put in the work and the sacrifices. That means, you got to be where the action is. You cannot be staying at your little corner in the world and expect to be a success. Unless of course that corner is where the action is. Put yourself in environments where the opportunities of what you want to achieve is higher. Of course, that would also mean that the competition is also bigger. But this is an important step to take. How closer do you think someone’s chances are to be a hollywood star if he lives in Singapore as compared to Los Angeles? Yes, with social media connecting the world, that might change but being where the action is shows grit and determination. That is attractive. It could very well be the difference between success and failure. It can never be replaced with social media or any form of technology, at least for now.
