Aileen's 4 ingredients to success
A successful person is...
SMART: Successful people know how to turn challenges into opportunities. They know when to be aggressive, and when to back down. Being smart is not the equivalent to being well educated though education obviously helps. Or does it kill creativity and make us robots?
But that is a discussion for another time, another place.
HUMBLE: Arrogance gets you nowhere.
DETERMINED: Someone who is well-educated and smart (somehow using that term and verb as equivalents feel oh-so wrong), but is not determined enough will most likely fall short.
All this is making me hungry. I'll bake cake tomorrow. nom nom nom
