Of course you want to be successful. Everybody does! But have you ever taken the time to think and establish what, exactly, this concept of success means to you? This has to be the starting point, for you can never attain anything in life without first being absolutely clear on what that ‘thing’ is. Many of us jump onto the traditional bandwagon which has been created and perpetuated by society in general, where a good job; a good salary; a nice house; a nice car etc. are the things we chase, often mindlessly, in order to be considered successful.

Television news – which has played a crucial role in the world’s most momentous events, from wars and royal weddings to mankind’s first steps on the moon – is in the midst of a digital-fueled revolution. In the early years, TV news was monopolised by large corporations and state broadcasters, who controlled what went on air and when.
