There are many different tactics for how to be successful in life, but the strategy that works best for you may depend on your view of success itself. We often think of it as doing well at work or earning a high salary. While professional accomplishments can be one piece of the puzzle, it leaves out many other important areas of life. Family, romantic relationships, academics, and athletics are just a few areas where people may strive for success.
Your individual definition of what success is exactly may vary, but many might define it as being fulfilled, happy, safe, healthy, and loved. It is the ability to reach your goals in life, whatever those goals may be.
After watching interviews of hundreds and listening to hundreds of CEOs, athletes, and celebrities and also a number of the most successful people in the world, I ask myself this question… what’s it that makes the successful successful?
I’ve always been fascinated by the mindset of the super successful; they’re disciplined, Focused and their determination in the face of difficulty… what makes them different?
Let’s see what percentage of these signs do you have?
1. Successful people have great habit unsuccessful people have lousy habits habits like smoking, drinking, taking drugs, watching too much TV.
You see successful people are where they’re today due to their habits.
Habits determine 95% of a person’s behaviour. Everything that you are today, everything that you will accomplish in the future is determined by the quality of the habit that you fought.
What I found that’s, the very best people have the best habit. Successful people are simply those with successful habits. Successful habits could be getting up in the morning meditate, reading, exercising regularly.
How many of these habits do you have?
2. Successful people are incredibly driven
Is your personal drive that turns your ideas into actions, into result, it’s your personal Drive that keeps you going when things get tough, it’s your personal Drive that enables you to recover from disappointment, from setback.
So how driven are you? or are are you lazy? Do you procrastinate, do you put things off easy? Dan Lok said; “for the primary five years of my career I didn’t take one time off i used to be working 10, 12, 14 hours every single days for five-year streak, why because i was driven, i was driven to provide for my family i was driven to prove people wrong and today i’m driven by my mission”.
How driven are you?
3. Successful people are confident in their abilities. the two biggest enemies to success;
b) The fear of the Unknown.
We struggled with self-doubt. Are we ready for this? Are we good enough? Do we even have what it takes to succeed?
Confidence is nothing more than believing in yourself and believing in yourself has nothing more than doing the things that you once didn’t believe that you could do.
Confidence comes from competence. It is simple to believe in yourself when everyone believes in you. That’s not what I’m talking about…. I’m talking about believing in yourself when you’re not ready, believing yourself when no one believes you, believe in yourself when everyone doubts you that you cannot roll in the hay, that you cannot make it.
That is when you need to develop the unshakable self-confidence. Believe that you can do it and confidence is not the same as arrogance. Arrogance is thinking that you’re above everybody else… one is above you. Do you feel confident enough in your own abilities that you can do it? Are you willing to back yourself?… not just in words but in action.
4. Successful people have a growth mindset
5. Successful people embrace failures
Do you embrace failure or do you take failure personal? Successful people are ridiculously positive about the future. They always speak positively about their future… where things are going as if it has already happened even though there’s no way that it could happened. They believe in themselves but they have positive expectations about their future.
Walt Disney was fired by the news editor saying that he had no imagination and no creativity but he became successful.
You will notice the most successful people in any field are usually the ones who have failed than anybody else.
The difference between a successful person and everyone else is not lack of strength…. it’s not lack of knowledge… it’s lack of will.
Winston Churchill said success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
6. They have high EQ … not IQ but EQ
They may not be the smartest people in the world but they surround themselves with smart people.
They may not be the best students in the world but yet they demonstrate a high degree of emotional intelligence.
Successful people they have a high degree of emotional intelligence meaning that they don’t crack under pressure. They stay calm, They know how to deal with stress. They know how to deal with anxiety even when things don’t go their way.
Successful people are also very much self-aware, meaning that they know what they’re good at, what they are not good at, what their strengths are and what their weaknesses are. They know how to manage their emotions.
They refuse to feel inadequate, resentful and disappointed when failure hit them.
So how many of these signs do you have?
