The point of the article is not to look at how to achieve success, it’s how to use these questions to analyse where you are at in your life.
I agree that telling people that you need to just work hard isn’t the best advice, but that’s not what I’m saying. I’m arguing that you need to be looking critically at yourself constantly if you want to improve.
This would apply to people who are successful, and those who want to be.
I’m not trying to make people think life is easy, because it’s not. What I’m trying to do is encourage people to look at themselves critically to see how they could improve their lives.
