Success is begins in the mind. One has to be a believer, first, if one wishes to be an achiever. Never under-estimate yourself. You have no idea how often can you surprise yourself. So to begin with, let's get in the belief, "I Can." and Forget about the passing percentage superstitions, remember "If You Think You Can then You Can" its most needed for CA Student.
2. Clarity of Vision:
There is no point running around without knowing where one wants to reach. you must get your job cut out. Greatest achievers in the world have been visionaries. Know exactly what you are best at and give it your best shot. So plan the things before you stepping in.
3. Setting the Right Goals:
The goals should be realistic .The goals should be achievable ,and yet challenging enough - neither too easy nor too difficult -something in the middle. So it enhances your ability from time to time. Set 480+ marks as TARGET instead of 400.
4. Be focused:
If the sun's rays are focused on a piece of paper with a lens, the intensity of the concentrated energy burns the paper. Focus on your objective will enhance the intensity of the effects of your efforts. In that way get the control on each subjects.
5. No Short Cuts to Success:
There are no short cuts to success. Divide your overall goals into smaller targets. So just forget about the size of syllabus, Plan to finish as many pages in hour, Topics in sessions, Chapters in Day. Divide your monthly plans into weekly and weekly plans into daily plans and see how simple can things be.
6. Take Risks:
Without any risk no progress is possible. Life comes to a stable standstill. People who take chances are the people who get ahead in life. The only way to reduce risk is to take risks. Well.., Choosing the CA itself is Risk.!
7. Take the Initiative:
People who take the initiative make the most of their lives. Proactive people do not wait for success to happen; rather they make it happen. As they say, 'JUST DO IT'. Apply same on revisions, remember You only have to read the Books and giving Answers in Exams so no use of Procrastism.
8. Never Hesitate to Struggle:
No one has ever climbed a mountain just by looking at it. Struggle, hard struggle, is a key to success.
9. Own Responsibility:
Failure to hit the bull's eye is never the fault of the target. People, who own complete responsibility of their lives, are the people who make the most of it. No use of Blaming Examiner or ICAI.
10. Never Give Up:
Last but not least
Many people who failed in life, where those who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Persistence is a decision. It is a commitment to finish what you start. When we are
exhausted, quitting looks good. But winners endure. Ask a winning athlete. He endures pain and finishes what he started. Athletes put in years of practice for a few seconds or minutes of performance. Lots of failures have begun well but have not concluded anything. Persistence comes from purpose.
So dear Friends, Success demands extra-ordinary amount of perseverance. Never, never, give up.
