Armin van Buuren Shares His Secrets To Success & Happiness [VIDEO]

In a recent video interview, trance superstar Armin van Buuren discussed his secrets to success and shared his view on what traits and perspectives are required for happiness and prosperity. In the video, he talks about learning to deal with unmet expectations, the importance of work ethic, and the need for passion for what you do.

Unsurprisingly, he lists strong work ethic as one of the most important factors that contributes to success.

"It's very important that you have to have a good work ethic, no one gets anywhere without hard work."

Armin also talks about the importance of dealing with failure and disappointment, explaining that how you react to these difficulties defines character. He shares some of the difficulties he runs into working as a successful producer.

"Even myself as a producer, I run into disappointment almost on a daily basis. Because I try to work with artists that on the last moment pull back their song. I think all artists have to deal with stuff like that. You don't get the set times you want, you don't get the billing you want..."

Armin talks about the importance of having passion for what you do if you want to be successful, and states that if you don't have love for what you're doing, you won't be successful.

"Everybody has a certain passion, and I want to stress that the word passion is the most important in that. You have to really , really, really want something. If you like your job, not like, but love your job, you'll be two hundred percent good at it. If you don't love what you're doing, you're actually wasting your time."
