3 tips for sucess from Preap Sovath

1. Make friends with the right people
Friends have a very important role in your life. They will be some of your greatest influences and also the people you turn to when you need help or advice. Good friends will drive you towards good places, and bad friends will lead you to make decisions that are not in your best interest. Of course, your family is also very important, but having a strong group of friends will give you a network of people that can support you and share in your successes.

2. Make goals for yourself
Once you decide what you want to do with your life, you need to set clear goals and be willing to work hard to reach them. Even if you have problems on the way, they cannot stop you from continuing to work hard. If you are truly determined, no one can stop you from doing what you want to do. For example, if you want to be a singer or an actor, you must study every day to perfect your skills in that area. If you set clear goals, then you will know what you have to do to get there, and your life will begin to have a purpose.

3. Present yourself well
Youth are the leaders of the future. They are the people who will improve Cambodia and make important decisions in the future. With this in mind, you should start to carry yourself like you are a leader already. If you want people to take you seriously, you need to make your behaviour match. You may still be young, but it doesn’t mean that you cannot carry yourself like a professional. Be yourself, but also be mindful of presenting yourself like the confident person that you should be.
