There are many benefits of becoming successful such as more self confidence, become a

role model for others and also you also become more optimistic.

 

To begin with, a benefit of becoming successful is gaining more self confidence after

working your hardest and achieving. In the” Real Successes” by Julie Hebert states that “Real

Successes are thought, to be given to only the great”. This quote means that people believes

that people thinks success is given to successful people. If success was given to people

everyone would be successful but to become successful you would have to work extra hard,

get out your comfort zone and stay focused. People that are successful, went through a lot to

where they are and success was not given to them but earned. Achievement of your goals

brings self confidence which brings your mind to peace and satisfied with your life.

In addition, success leading to self confidence results in wanting to strive for more things in life.

For example, Arnold Schwarzenegger was successful in bodybuilding and won many

competitions but strived for more when winning best male actor in Hollywood. Also winning

best actor in Kids Choice and becoming California’s mayor. Even though Arnold

Schwarzenegger father and brother died while young that did not stop him from becoming

successful but motivated him more.

 

Another benefit of becoming successful is becoming a role model for others. Becoming a role

model for others by being successful will motivate others such as upcoming generations. Being

a successful individual will make others want to follow your exact foot steps. Many people

would question how you did it and and all you would say is to follow your dreams and never

give up but they wouldn’t know the struggles you go through such as people trying to bring you

down.”Real Successes” by Julie Hebert states that ” real successes are envied, and rumored on

how they were made.People can be so jealous and even want to betray”. This quote exemplifies

that successful people are envied because no one believed in them so others that are not

successful will try anything to lead them to failure.

Michael Jordan is known as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. During high

school he was cut from his varsity basketball team three times because he was considered “too

short”. That did not stop him and he did not give up he grew a couple more inches and became

tall enough to make the team. He finally made the team his senior year of highschool and later

was recruited to North Carolina. Michael did well in college and was drafted to the Bulls and

was dominating the game. During his prime, people trying to bring him down, shot and killed his

father and that made him retire. Michael took a break from the sport and came back

with vengeance and won many NBA titles for his teams and is now known as the greatest

basketball player of all time.

 

Despite what people do or try to bring you down while you’re on a mission to become successful

you can still ignore it and keep pushing. Overcoming these issues will only make you a stronger

individual. If you fail to become successful keep on trying it’s never too late success is the

feeling of being satisfied with what you became from your hard work and obstacles and for a

fact it will make you a great role model for other generations.

Lastly, another benefit from being successful is becoming optimistic. the poem states that”But

you know how real successes, Are built with hard work and care.You’ve made your way to the

top, I’m so proud to see you are there”. This quote means that the after effect of becoming

successful others is that are motivated by you will be proud of you. Success makes you an

optimistic person and you’ll deal with failure constructively and be more patient. A successful

person also does not see any negative outcomes of any situations which creates positive

expectations.

 

In addition to becoming more optimistic after becoming successful, many successful beings tend

to reduces the level of frustrations and worries. For example, if you achieved your bachelor’s

degree and knew that it took a lot of effort then you would believe in yourself striving for every

goal no matter what. You are now experienced to the ups and downs of becoming successful and

learning that your hard work pays off.

 

Also, becoming optimistic you become more thankful and. While striving for your goal there

were some people that helped you alot and maybe without them you wouldn’t be where you are.

You might look back and thank your parents, friends, teachers and etc. One may believe that to

become successful you will need help sometimes down the road. If you were a basketball player

you would thank your father who trained you or your coach who helped you on his free time and

now you’re in the N.B.A and without that help you maybe wouldn’t make it so far. Those people

that helped you become successful are now proud to see you are there.
