What do you attribute your success to?

  • I attribute my success to staying objective and being in flow with life. I dont try to avoid situations, I embrace change and challenges, and I have always tried to learn from situations I found myself in. I follow my gut/intuition and what feels right at the right moment. I believe The Universe sometimes nudges us along and by going with the flow and staying open, I found success. And of course, studying longer hours than most and quite a bit of elbow grease helped
