Actually, Charlie Sheen only became famous because of his dad.

Maybe... but if that were the case, Emilio Estevez would still be relevant...

actually, because he kept his mother's name, his name didn't get that big.

Well for starters don't fail to begin with. IJS but anywho I'd have to say one is confidence. Knowing who you are and what you really stand for really is a key building block in success. Second would be accepting - such as accepting a failed attempt at something but trying at it again till you get it right or in the way of being wrong and accepting it was wrong or that you may not be 100% right about everything. And lastly is planning though you may thing that 2:00 appointment is 5 hours away it creeps around the corner like a snake and that's why planning helps to succeed. Then again maybe just being yourself will be your success.

Name62 is absolutely right about knowing who you are and what you stand for or believe in.. and having confidence is a BIG key to success. (Remember: confidence, not cocky.) :)

Passion, Focus, Dedication, Mental Determination, Integrity, Confidence, and Humility... there's a key ring full of keys to success! There are many others listed before my posting that are elements that will lead to success and I'm sure many more will follow.

that right there is the key. a big thing that was missing from all the other comments is determination.. you need to drive yourself to become successful. if you don't push yourself and give whatever you want to do every thing you have then you will never live up to your full potential.. you must push yourself even when you have had enough.. that is what separates the good from the great.. drive.

Motivation and a positive attitude. No successful person ever said "I can't do this" or "I won't be able to do this".

Also, there is no such thing as failure. Just temporary set-backs and learning experiences. Lastly (and maybe most importantly) surround yourself with successful people. Don't be afraid that they might be better or smarter than you. These people will help bring you to their level. When I hire people for my company, I look for those that know things I don't. That way, I still learn and they aid me in my success.

I am almost 60, so are my friends. Some of 'us' have already retired quite wealthy, another is doing so next year. Me? I'll be working 6 more years until Soc Security & changing to a more positive line of work. Less money but pleasant days. You could not have told any of us 40 yrs ago that it was not about money, material things, etc... But I am here to tell you that my wealthiest friends are miserable as human beings. All that denial and scrimping starved their souls and just like they say youth is wasted on the young, wealth is wasted on those who are not nice to themselves and never, ever helped their fellow man. I am the 'poor one' of the bunch if you look at our bank accounts, but my self esteem at doing it the hard way (on my own merits & in my own way) and helping others along the way (whether I knew them or not) makes my soul & personality large. And hanging with successful people is a crock: most like surrounding themselves with lesser people. Books. Reading. There is an abundance of info out there.

Success does not belong to a select few; success belongs to ?you,? if you?re willing to go after it.

Success is never handed out, you must take it, but you don?t take it by force. You take success by becoming a successful person internally. When you succeed on the inside, by taking on the thoughts of a successful person, the results will show on the outside.

Hard work and self-confidence are important, but understanding the reality of the situation and especially the reality about yourself is vital. Play to your strengths, protect your weaknesses and try not to defeat yourself.

It is said that:-
" HARD WORK IS THE OF SUCCESS"
I agree with this belief but I must give my own opinion for this. By my opinion if we want to achieve the real success in our life then always apply the path of truth, never be dishearten by the difficulties , have patience and solve the difficulties with self confidence. And at last i would simply say that :-
" DEFEAT THE DEFEAT BEFORE THE DEFEAT DEFEATS YOU"

Success is just a matter of perspective. It depends on what it valuable for you in life. You can be a successful person even if you have meager earnings if you are happy in life, in love (family), and with the work you do. :)
