10 qualities of a highly successful person
Your success starts here! This is the most critical step. Define what is a success and visualize it clearly in your mind. For example, you see yourself blogging at a Starbucks cafe, sipping a steaming cup of Cappuccino latte, and earning £10,000 a month from your online business! This vision will propel you towards it!
Choose to be successful in what you’re passionate about. You’ll enjoy the journey. Working from home? Go for it! Love for the environment? Just do it!
Combine your passion with knowledge. If your passion is in auto sales, know everything about your product and that of the competitors. All your clients with the trust you because you can easily explain to them the benefits of your product versus the competitors.
4. Take Risk
Combine knowledge with risk-taking. If you’ve always wished to work from home, research thoroughly the Pro and cons of this business model. Then just start. Don’t delay
5. Be Coachable
Everyone learns from someone. Ask questions. Listen carefully. Ask some more questions. Apply what you learn and become better at what you do.
Even with all the knowledge and advice, sometimes thing don’t go as we expect. Stay the course. For example, after 6 months, your online store’s income is just miserable. Stay the course! At some point, you’ll turn a corner.
Remember Jake Ma’s story? When he was young, he was one of 25 people who interviewed for a job at KFC. 24 were accepted. He was the only one who was rejected!
When we read about others’ success, we go, ‘Wow, I wish I can do that.’ But can we see their sweat, tears, fear, and failures? Yes, they keep going for years before they succeed!
Combine patience with positive thinking. Your optimism will make you resilient. You will look for opportunities in difficult situations instead of being paralyzed in negativity.
Ah, in this age, you can’t be successful without being sociable. Whether you’re working a 9-5 job or running your own business, being sociable makes you likable and memorable.
Being sociable helps you build a huge network of connections! These connections will open doors you’ll never imagine!
