The secret of living a successful life is no secret at all. We all want to make our life better, and the search for success tends to blossom in our life at some point in time.
As MS Dhoni says in one of his interviews, “In fact, there is no single batsmen in the history of the game who mastered cricket so well that he never got out at all.”
Likewise, one dedicated secret makes our lives better to be successful. Life is about being disciplined and trying to make mistakes and not repeat the same mistake.
