To be a successful person, I believe that one should observe the lives of those who have met a certain level of success. Two of the most common attributes of successful people that I have ever heard are; one should sleep often and they should never be afraid of failing. I do believe wholeheartedly that if you ever want to accomplish anything, especially something as difficult as one having not been done before, then you should never fear failure. It is not over if you fail, it is over when you quit. Never give up.
