Success is greatly enhanced when you set goals, work hard to achieve them. Keep your nose clean, live by a moral principle that is central to your goals, and network with as many people in your chosen field as possible.
And remember...the world was not created just for you. Give back and be sincere. Nobody likes an a-hole. Give your company a greater asset than they are giving you, and the buoyancy will allow you to rise higher in fullfilling your dreams. Nothing is given and nothing is certain in life.
