Growing up I’ve always been intrigued by the topic “Keys to Success” and “Success” in general. As an observant one for that matter I study everything around me, I read up any writing on success I could lay my hands upon, it has always been a fascinating topic to me.
I asked so much questions on the disparity in this world, the reason so many people are struggling to no avail and why there is a difference between those that have managed to achieve success and those that did not. Questions like “What are the keys to success?” flew through my mind, though I have managed to gather up some things as I grow daily I still live with chronicles of mystery that is yet to be uncovered by my young mind.
Being successful is what every human being desire, while . We are inspired by stories of men and women that have hit landmark in their career and we want to be like them.

The business dictionary defines attitude as “a predisposition or a tendency to respond positively or negatively towards a certain idea, object, person or situation”. It says attitude influences an individual’s choice of action and responses to challenges, incentives and rewards.
