1.  Cherish learning in success or failure.
Failures are not a surprise for engineers. What makes you stand out from others is the way you deal with it. Successful engineers see failure as an opportunity to try something new, to perform better.

2.  Don’t compare yourself to others.
Be your best at what you do and keep consistently being the best. The only one you should compare yourself is to who you are today and how can you better yourself for the future.

3.  Embrace different perspectives to solve a problem.
All engineers know this that there are hundreds of solutions and hundreds of approaches to a certain problem. When you can’t seem to reach a solution with one point of view, try perceiving the problem in another way. If you are working in a team take inputs from everyone, put different perspectives to work and solve the problem.

4.  Exercise- A must.
Along with your brain, your body needs its dosage of maintenance too. Remember without a healthy body one cannot be efficient in his/her work. Take some time out and make it a point to exercise on a daily basis.

5.  Avoid procrastination.
Avoiding procrastination is today’s world is a rather challenging thing to do. With social media becoming an ‘important’ part and parcel of our lives, it is convenient enough to put off our work to next day, and the next and it goes on. Agreed we need our share social lives but don’t waste most of your time browsing such apps. Prioritize your work which will give you time for work, study as well as fun.

6.  Read books.
Reading books allows you to learn new information you can relate or connect with your current skills and solve problems more efficiently than someone who is not reading books at all. Be it fiction or non-fiction, the former broadens your imagination and the latter gives you access to facts and mantras regarding your field.

7.  Be confident that you will make it. 
Four years of engineering is certainly not easy. Often you go through phases of self-doubt and fear and series of what-ifs about uncertainty of your future. Take a breath. Relax. Keep giving your 100% and things will work out for you just as fine. Always have confidence in yourself and your abilities to make it.

Becoming successful in any engineering field, or in life as an engineer takes a lot of hard work and determination. Be confident, set your goals and strongly work towards them, and the most important thing – never stop learning!
