Hard work- After you have set your goals and have educated yourself on how to meet those goals is where your work ethic kicks in! Give it everything you have and strive for excellence. Give it your max effort!
Reflect (failure vs success)- Sometimes we need to fail in order to achieve success. Think of failure as constructive criticism. If you didn't meet your goal there must be a reason why! Use failure as a learning experience and turn it into a positive. Make yourself better and learn! Once you achieve success reflect and understand what you did well and not so well. What can you get better at? What are the keys that made you successful? Can you improve in a certain area? Is it time to form a new goal?
