People who succeed are those people who are happy with what they do. They are not ashamed to toil their hands and work hard. They are not selfish to share talents, but generous to serve. They are those who know how to balance work and play. They are the people who find meaning in life.
Success is not just acquiring wealth, but being contented with life and work.
Work is a calling. It is a vocation of life. Like all parts of the body, each person is valuable to a group or community. Each person plays a part to make the world a better place to live in. Each person needs to support the community in the job (big or small) he has. In God's eyes, everyone is the same. Each person deems a duty to God and others. Fulfilling a duty is success already.

Stop thinking, "If only..."
When doing something, you should do it with your whole heart. The mind has limits, but the heart has no limits to work. Mistakes can be corrected and the blaming part should stop.
Many would say:
"If only had I worked for the right company."
"If only I was able to finish my college."
"If only I had the powerful connections."
These are tags of disappointments and unending regrets. A good worker moves on, if an inch each passing day. Your life is in the actions you make.
Time is money. Know that we all have 86,400 seconds everyday. Avoid people who always complain. A person who always complains is nobody's friend. Avoid negative people.
Spend each day wisely, accomplishing something good for yourself and others.
Count your blessings.
You are lucky to be able to use your hands, your feet, your eyes, your mind, and your brain to work. To work is a blessing. See those who are born with defects, but are thankful enough and trying hard to fit in the world of movement.
Conquer the weaker self. Be strong in trials. If you've survived some difficulties, it is a big win! Be happy and thankful you were chosen to serve. In many ways, know you are part of progress in whatever job you do.
See these lines from Invictus, by William Earnest Henly.
"It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate,
I am the captain of my soul."
Truly, "Send good, happy workers, Lord!
