Chapter 1: Set Big Goals
If you’re going to set yourself up for success in life, then you need to set some mighty meaningful goals for yourself. So as a starting point, the first and foremost thing to remember on the journey of personal success is a positive attitude towards everything. If you fail once, brush up your knees and get back out there. If you get rejected the first time, better yourself with a positive outlook, prove yourself instead of bringing yourself down with negativity. Tell yourself through every obstacle and hardship, 'I did not come this far, to ONLY come this far'. No success is achieved overnight, no mountain is climbed without a few falls or two. If others can put up a fight to achieve personal success despite countless hardships, so can you.

Chapter 3: Consistency is Key
Consistency is the magic ingredient for success, be it personal betterment, business, academics or just the relationships with loved ones. Without consistency and the will to stay steadfast in what you are trying to achieve, only failure awaits. A child can never tie his shoelaces the very first try, he will only succeed when he tries again over and over till he finally figures it out the hundredth time. The same goes to adults, do you think anyone can play the piano flawlessly on their first attempt? The important thing is not to do it once, but to do it over and over again. To never stop until you achieve total mastery.

Chapter 5: Be Accountable
There comes a certain time in your life when you realize that now you are accountable for everything you do. The idea is quite daunting as accountability is needed in all spheres of life.
Say It Out Loud That You’ll Do It
Chapter 6: Live in the Moment
Living in the moment means to be fully aware and mindful of the present moment. It may involve some effort on your part as it means not dwelling unnecessarily on the past, or being overly anxious about the future. To live in the moment is to seize the moment you are in, living it to the fullest, experiencing it without letting the past or the future distract you. In fact, living in the moment means acknowledging that “someday” will never come. If anything, it’s already here. It’s right now, so don’t put off your goals just because it’s not the right time, or you lack of funds. You can still work for your goals despite these setbacks. The time may never be right unless you’re prepared for it. So prepare right now. This presents the entire idea of living in the now, and not just 'living' it, but realizing the importance of it, giving it the emotions
and thought that it rightfully demands. Focusing on what you have now, focusing on the task at hand now, and focusing on all that you can thank today for.
Be Present And Mindful
Chapter 7: Be Adventurous
Being adventurous is to experience something different from the norm, something exciting and maybe even risky. For every individual, the meaning of the word 'adventure' differs greatly. For some it may just be staying up late and out past the curfew, and for others it could be skydiving, climbing Mount Everest, learn scuba- diving, etc. Everyone has different kinds of meaning attached to the word ‘Adventurous’. Being adventurous and challenging yourself is what shapes your character and forms new memories, which makes this life worthwhile. Without adventure the daily grind of life slowly strips away excitement and experiences that are important for the growth of a person. Adventures contribute in keeping relationships from getting dull.

Chapter 8: Words of Success
Words and language are unique to human beings only. They’re like superpower which you can either use for the good or the bad. Unfortunately, people don’t often realise the impact words can have. Whether it’s the expression of love, the instructions on a manual or the speech of a captain just before a game, the words we use can change the outlook on everything. In fact, words probably linger longer in our memories than actual faces or whole events. So it’s wise not to underestimate what words can do for yourself and for others.

Chapter 9: Be a Lifelong Learner
Learning is not limited to how many school and college years you’ve had. Instead, it’s a constant, ongoing process of evolution. One that involves acknowledging that you don’t know everything. It’s an important factor in shaping your personality, introducing new concepts and ideas to you and helping you educate yourself without any limitations. The worst thing you could do to yourself is insist that you already know everything. But choosing to evolve isn’t always easy. Evolving means mastering success by continuously becoming a better version of your current self. It also implies that you’re humble enough to accept correction and improvement.
Embrace Learning And Constant Improvement
