Ambition is the first step to success, the second step is action! so here're some ways to help you to achieve success:
1- Give up excuses:
It's not about having time, if it really matters and if you wanted badly you'll make the time.
2- Get enough motivation:
We only need motivation to make a commitment to take actions on our dreams, because the motivation isn't what is going to last, feelings and moods changes, the commitment is what will get you to keep working.
3- Be flexible:
Don't stick to a specific method, there are always many ways to get to where you want, but it might not be the way you imagined it, sometimes there's a way that is too simple that you couldn't think about, so be okay with changing your work method, because there's always better! you can't improve without change.
4- Believe that you're good enough, but never believe that your work is good enough:
You can always do better, so work harder, and give up thinking that your work is good enough, it is not, there is always something to improve, don't compare your work with others' to say that you're better, compare to learn from others but be unique.
5- Strive for the best:
Change often and experience, strive for perfection in yourself and most of all in your work, that kind of human perfection, you can always do better and be better!
6- Happiness is a key:
It doesn't matter what you're doing, what does is that doing it makes you happy, and you don't need to do great things to be successful, but you need to be happy to be successful, life is about happiness and that's the true success, everything else will follow and this happiness is what will bring to your life the positivity you need to reach out your dreams and live the life you want!
7- Keep your priorities straight:
The problem is not about time, it's about priorities, it's not that you don't have the time to do it, it's just that it's not a priority.
8- Make a commitment:
Even if it was your passion, you won't always have the mood to work on it, though it is something you love doing. You need to commit to your passion if you want to make the success. Make a commitment, fail, start again and fail but each time fail a little less, and that's the success.
9- Look for opportunities:
And the best place to look in is in helping people.. While unsuccessful people ask "what's in for me?", successful people are ask "what can I do for you?", it may sound ironic somehow, but that's how things goes, we rise by lifting others. The only reason why you want to be successful and work on your dreams should be to help people and make the world a brighter place and that's true success, otherwise you're getting success wrong.
Nothing will ever work unless you work, so stop wishing and start doing!
