5.6 Resources for Success

Course Overview

Success is very rarely something that we achieve by going it alone. Success is usually the result of continuous leveraging of the resources and opportunities available around us. If you want to climb a mountain, you could set out naked and barefoot without a map, but you probably wouldn’t get very far. Most of us will take some time to research and invest in the right tools for the job: good boots, warm clothing, maps and GPS equipment, etc. Success depends on identifying and making good use of resources that can help you achieve your goal. 

“The secret of success is to be ready when your opportunity comes.”  

– Benjamin Disraeli
