I've often found that being in the right place at the right time, often helps ... opportunism

wocca you got it right...a friend of ours owes his success to being in the right place at the right time, and willing to take some risk...... he now works cos he wants to, not cos he has to...:)

I think that's it - taking a certain amount of risks that pay off.

Self-confidence has a hige part to play in how happy you are or how successful you become. Getting a good balance between self-confidence and modesty can help you go a long way, I think

Pierre Elliot Trudeau said "Luck is one part preparedness, one part opportunity." Or something like that.

I have success???? Why the feck did nobody tell me

Success is a combination of sheer luck, opportunism and having a large deposit in a swiss bank account.

depends on your definition of "success"...

I find what I thought "success" would be when I was younger is no longer how I view it now.

Since we are speaking about opinion, I guess the secret to success is one's ability to adapt, and simple perserverance.

I think I'd take the silver platter treatment... why was I not born into a rich family... why???

You can forget that the "meek shall inherit the earth"... Because the unworthy will get it first. Then, the meek will be too scared to say that don't want what's left
