You should never stop thinking about your goal and working towards your vision. When you have a goal, always work for it passionately. When you work by putting your best efforts, you will only make progress and you'll never regret for dedicating all your time on your goal.

3. Be with Right people

Always consider to keep your circle small and with right people. Be with people who will provide you with suggestion, who can give you smart ideas, who can be with you in your failure and motivate you to try again and if required be your mentor.
Bill always surrounded himself with smart people like Paul Allen and many others who always supported his ideas and brought smart suggestions. We cannot deny that Paul Allen do has a big role in success of Bill Gates.

At that time, he too was even unsure about whether his plan will succeed or fail. But still he took the risk and made it work through patience, careful planning, and perseverance.
There is no perfect time. When you realize your passion,  take risk to follow it and put your all efforts to make it possible.

As Bill Gates said, “To win big, sometimes you have to take big risks”

5. Patience is a key element of success

Bill Gates and Paul Allen started Microsoft on unstable foundation, but through patience and hard work they were able to surpass the struggles they encountered.
Gates always believed that, the habit of expecting instant results is dangerous. In wanting everything to happen instantly, we lose patience to hold out for more-fulfilling opportunities and dreams.
There are no shortcuts to success. It takes time to get success and requires a lifetime of sacrifice to keep the consistency going.

We should keep a Goal in our life and work hard for it. To get success in our life the very first thing we have to do is we should not delay our work. We should never give up and try again till we succeed and most importantly to keep trying we will have to understand that success cannot be achieved overnight and patience is must.
