Some of them are not within our control, such as having a favourable business and political environment or having a wise and capable mentor who can coach and guide you as you progress in your career. However, there are certain key attributes which can help us achieve success, if we recognise the important role they play and make adequate efforts to nurture them. These are passion, creativity and ability to execute well, all of them anchored by a sound value system.”
