When you think of Thomas Edison, certainly you think about the invention of the electric light bulb. This great scientist was also inspiring and thought provoking leader. The quote above is one of the many motivational words of personal success. In it you need three most important Essential Keys to personal success. For the most part these keys are some of the values that our parents or guard have inculcated in us or to say the least have tried. As these keys were strong in the time Mr Edison they are as powerful today. personal success requires the following elements:
Had-win “. Work smart and not hard” You probably will have heard or read, However, the reality is that working smart is hard work to be honest. Working smart is not a sign that the work is going to be easy, without errors or smooth sailing, but it includes the ability to take advantage of relevant information, to adapt to new trends, acquire and update skills to produce the desired results. This is such a work. Thomas Edison noted further, “There is no substitute for work.” Do not let people make you believe that working smart sits on the beach in Maui and enjoy all kinds of exotic locations. This also comes with working hard and smart. Ask any successful person today what is the number one secret of personal success of the unequivocal answer will be hard work. As Mr. Edison theory, to achieve anything worth while hard work is a prerequisite just like our parents kept us.
Stick-to-itiveness: Dictionary.com defines stick to itiveness that dogged persistence; safe tenacity. J. Robert Buchanan said, “You’ve got to have realistic goals and stick-to-itiveness to get it” To achieve personal success you have to persevere through the process, be tenacious in your goals and action plans that are congruent with the appropriate goals. There will be temporary detours and difficult moments of personal success journey, but you have to refute any haphazard trend and not leave the ship, throwing in the towel and let your ideas go satisfied. Whatever insurmountable challenges that stands in your way to personal and professional success you’ve got to have this stick-to-itiveness mentality to achieve your goals.

It can not be plainer than that, the knack of seeing things as they are and do what you are supposes to do to get the anticipated results. According to Mr. Edison, achieve anything worth while requires common sense. Go to work on yourself to apply these three keys and personal success is guaranteed.
