#success is a term that you probably hear every day but not everybody really knows how to #Achieve it. Although everyone is different, there are some #Facts you ought to remember if you want to achieve success.

1. You'll never be 100% ready

When the perfect opportunity arises you need to seize it with both hands even if you don't feel like you are ready. Instead of questioning your abilities, take the opportunity at hand and accept the challenge -- only then will you be able to grow as a person and get out of your comfort zone. The Website of FastCompany points out that If Richard Branson Branson had "waited until he felt ready, he probably wouldn’t be where he is today."

2. Success and failure often go hand in hand

It is not rare for you to misinterpret the term success.

People fear failure so much, unaware of the fact that it is just as natural as the success is. They are different sides of the same coin. Failure is nothing more than a step toward success. The Hartford Courant wrote that at the Bristol Eastern High School this week, graduate Ryan Palzere told 310 classmates "Every failure is a lesson. If you're not willing to fail, you're not ready to succeed."

3. Action is the key to every success

How many times have you heard the phrase "Knowledge is power"? Well, it only works when you use that knowledge. Knowledge without a proper action isn't worth much when you don't apply it. If you never use what you have learned, all the knowledge will fade in no time. Some famously successful people lived by the belief that success cannot happen without action.

For example, Action is the foundational key to all success,is attributed to Pablo Picasso. Winston Churchill said "Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”

4. Sometimes even mistakes could mean improvement

A path toward success is filled with mistakes and is seldom a path that is clear and straightforward. Unfortunately, some lessons must be learned the hard way. Obviously, you can't be proud of every mistake you have ever made, but some of them have allowed you to become stronger and wiser.

Every mistake brings you one step closer to success and that's why you need to remember that the biggest mistake that you could possibly make is not to try at all because of the fear that you might make some mistakes on your path toward success.

5. Don't let your happiness depend on your success

Do you honestly believe that the only way for you to be happy is to achieve success? If you are thinking this way, you'll never reach true happiness. You should think of another approach instead.

Try to find a reason to be happy every day regardless of your success.

6. You don't have to love your job to be the best

Many people believe that for them to give their best and achieve extraordinary success, they need to love what they do. If you share this belief, you are wrong. If you love your job, that will make your path to success a whole lot easier, but even if you don't, that doesn't mean you won't succeed. All it takes is a lot of motivation and discipline.
