Leave behind some inspiration for others. Once you have set the course for defining your life into a huge success story, make sure you share the wisdom with others and pass down the knowledge to the next generation. This will help in building a future and inspire others to do better. 

Have courage. It takes a brave heart to execute the goals that one envisions in their life. Only someone who has the courage to deal with ordeals can succeed in life. It also takes courage to rebuild yourself and come back after a huge setback. So, don’t stop and show courage and determination in what you do and you shall succeed. 

Show some humility. Maintaining humanity in all aspects of life is important. It takes determination to care for the environment and mankind and to be people oriented. To think from the perspective of saving lives and bringing a change that includes kindness and unity all around is what true leadership stands for.
