It is nice to hear from a budding professional about his desire to be a successful HR. It all depends up on as to how you define success. Success means many things to many people. Is it climbing up career ladder fast? or winning the people's(employees') trust and support for HR initiatives like building a culture of commitment and gratitude that drives performance to realize organisational goals or is it developing competencies to develop fault free procedures in HR functioning. or is it a combination of all? Delve on the subject for your own conceptual clarity.and set a long term goal but in the mean time set some immediate or short term goals which can serve as stepping stones to achieve your long term goal.There is no secret formula for success.Any how for success in whatever you desire, you need to have basic traits which are :

1) be passionate about HR. It should come straight from the heart. You should enjoy being in HR. You should take to HR as a duck takes to water Then only it is possible to achieve excellence.Unless you excel in what you do, it is difficult to succeed.
