However, there are some beliefs that has worked the best for almost every successful human being and we must learn to adapt them.
Life is an ever growing journey and we can start working on ourselves anytime. Below are some beliefs that are like the tried and tested formulas of every successful person.

We may believe that knowledge is fixed, meaning there is only one way to approach a problem or opportunity. People embracing this absolutist philosophy will adhere to dogmas, believing, for example, that the best jobs / professional success are only landed as a result of strong social connections and not through skill development.
However, that’s not true. A sustainable success only happens when you keep on working towards your skills and knowledge.
There is no set age for learning, there is no set person from whom you can learn and there is no place on this earth where you cannot learn.
You just need to be open towards the Idea of learning at any time.
The more you learn, the more you grow.– Apurva
