Success is not just defined by riches but it also involves exceeding one's limitations and set goals.
Let's dive into some of these characteristics that drives an individual towards success.

The first stage of chasing success is to find your purpose.Your purpose is your duty here on earth and what you see fit to do. There are a lot of things anyone could do but there are things that only some people are attracted to. Maybe you feel passionate about helping the needy, singing or possibly just playing football to entertain others. Your passion points you to a purpose in life.
Once you've found a purpose in life,the next step is setting your goals for the future. If you are passionate about changing the world,how do uoi want to do it? By setting your goals you have placed a check on yourself to monitor your progress towards fulfilling your purpose in life.
