Your Success Formula in 2018

career insights success formula

I was at my lowest point in life just about 15 years ago when I came up with this formula and since applying it, my life has never been the same.

As we move into 2018, we are gunning for 1000+ success stories. Yes you heard right. We achieved 700+ in 2017 and in 2016 we thought we were being overly ambitious but hey…. look at us now.

Let’s start with the Success Formula for 2018

Success = (T-F) to the power of e
and Success = 1 which is a constant
Where T = Trial
F= failure
e = experience

I will explain:

Sally passed her driving test at the 20th trial
Peter passed his driving test at the 30th trial

Come what may they all passed their driving test once and if they pass again, they are just repeating a success formula.

So Sally’s success is = (20 trials — 19 failures ) where she learnt from her failures 19 times
(20–19) = 1
1 to the power of 19 = 1
Sally’s success factor is 1.

So Peter’s success is = (30 trials — 29 failures ) where he learnt from her failures 29 times
(30–29) = 1
1 to the power of 29 = 1
Peter’s success factor is 1.

You see what just happened there, you can try 100 times, another can try 10 times, in the end you all will succeed. It’s really down to the rate at which you learn from your experience that reduces your failure rate.

So failure is an integral part of success. The only time you truly become a failure is if you don’t try again.

I was at the lowest of low in my life when I came up with this formula. It was either accepting my faith or understanding that I was going through a journey.

This is what the agile process that the entire world has adopted is all about.

Every break through has come by the relentless attempt to keep trying and never giving up. You keep digging at it. If you are tired, rest but don’t give up. If you are fed up, take a chill pill but don’t give up.

Yes Sade may get her role after 3mths and you much later but you will never get that role if you give up.

Apply this formula here:

John secured his job at the 3rd month.

Bayo’s success formula = ((Got his hands dirty (trial) — Messed up a lot of times (failure) ) to the power of how quickly he learnt from his experience (‘e’ which is equal to 3 months work experience) = Success story in 3 months

Bolade’s success formula = ((Got her hands dirty (trial) — Messed up a lot of times (failure) ) to the power of how quickly she learnt from his experience (‘e’ which is equal to 8 months work experience) = Success story in 6 months

The only time you will not get your success story is if you are not getting your hands dirty and learning fast from your failures which is experience.

Now only you can reduce the rate of failure by increasing your rate of experience.

This is what eWorkexperience is all about.


Be inspired by these success stories this December out of 700+ this year 2017

Even though recruitment slows in December as corporations prepare for Christmas holidays, it still does not stop the success stories flowing in.

I told lady I spoke with to rather give me subscription

I thought she agreed to do that already

Good evening Keji, I secured an Assistant Project Manager role with MOD starting on Monday. Although I haven’t been asked for a reference but just in case I get asked, please I will be in touch with you. Thank you

Joined CI in June 2015 and its the 3rd role since joining.


When you join the Career Insights eWorkexperience platform, you are given 3 months subscription which is enough time to gain the experience required to secure your first role. What tends to happen is 90% of candidates, on securing their first role, continue to stay on the platform in order to gain more experience. Subscription is more valuable to them than getting £50 for each referral they bring. They tend to convert the referral fee into more subscription days.

Why you may ask?

This success story is on his 3rd role. So you see, it’s not just about securing your first, it’s about the recurring roles to come.
