Climbing the stairs to success in the workplace involves much more than merely putting one foot in front of another. It may require long hours of arduous effort, possibly without the certainty of us reaching our objective. The door at the top of the stairs might not be open.
Beyond our professional endeavours, the stairs to success may represent the actions we feel obliged to undertake to achieve acceptance within society in general or our local community in particular. However, if we attach importance to the matter, we could find satisfaction each step of the way.
When the occasion arises, consciously choosing to climb the stairs to success, regardless of the nature of success in question, is in itself an initial accomplishment. Hesitating or questioning our ability to reach our goals will never lead us anywhere, except perhaps into despondency.
As Ayn Rand put it: “The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity.”
