Success: What Is It To You? 

Pharmacy technicians and pharmacy technician students reach different levels of success in their careers. To some, success is passing the Pharmacy Technician Certification Exam (PTCE) and to others success is getting their first technician job or a promotion to lead technician. What is success to you? Some consider getting their dream job a success, while others think having a lot of money is success.

Do you look to others who are successful and kind for inspiration?  One portrait of kindness and success is Shark Tank’s Lori Greiner.  Greiner believes that “if you are lucky enough to be successful, you have a responsibility to give back.”  “I think about things that either I need or want, or will make my life easier, and I try to think of solutions,” said Greiner in Success Magazine. Here is a look at some keys to being successful in your career: 


  • Focus.  Being focused will help you be fully present in the moment at every step of your career. Try to block out distractions. 
  • Comfort Zones.  While some people stay in their comfort zone, others take risks. Step out of your comfort zone at times to grow in your career.  You will never grow if you do not take some risks or step out of your comfort bounds.
  • Passions.  If you are passionate about something then turn that passion into success. You may succeed or you may fail, either way you have given it your best try.


           You can learn to be successful if you follow the advice of those who have reached the heights of success.  Seek out those you admire and look to them for guidance.  To read more stories of success, please go to
