Successful people don’t think and act like the unsuccessful. I have always being fascinated by anybody who did or consistently does something very well, that quest is what made me start my podcast to interview great people.

As I interview and read about them I began to observe certain common traits about them, and here are a few of them.

  1. THEY OUT-WORK THE HERD: They usually come into the office first and leave last. They usually go the extra mile for their customers.
  1. THEY READ: Most, not all have a healthy reading habit they’re always consuming content that will give them more knowledge and wisdom to win in this fast changing world.
  1. THEY ARE CONSISTENT: They have something that they do consistently on a daily basis, whether it is prayer, exercise, sending emails to their customers etc.
  1. THEY THINK AHEAD OF THEIR INDUSTRY: They spot and perceive consumer behavioral changes and then adjust their strategy to take advantage of the changes so that they don’t become victims of change.
  1. THEY SURROUND THEMSELVES WITH SMART PEOPLE: They fundamentally believe that they can’t travel to the shores of greatness alone.
  1. THEY HAVE MENTORS OR COACHES THAT CHALLENGE THEM: If you’ll like me to be your life coach please email me: paulfohinspires@gmail.com
  1. THEY ALWAYS BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES: They self-trick themselves to believe that all things are possible for them, and it usually is because you become what you believe strongly.
  1. THEY SELL THEIR DREAMS AND IDEAS WITH PASSION: The world is owned and influenced by people who can make and persuade others to go across the road with them.
  1. THEY SELF-TEACH THEMSELVES NEW NECESSARY SKILLS USING THE INTERNET
  1. THEY USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO PUSH THEIR AGENDA
  1. THEY DON’T JUST DREAM, THEY TAKE MASSIVE ACTION: They know that nothing moves until a person moves.
  2. THEY TRAVEL FOR INSPIRATION AND REFUELING
  1. THEY TAKE HOW THEY LOOK SERIOUSLY, SO THEY ALWAYS DRESS THE PART: People see you before they hear you. Be the embodiment of your business.
  1. THEY NETWORK A LOT: They fundamentally know that your network, determines your net worth.
  1. THEY TAKE THEIR HEALTH SERIOUSLY: Most of them do some form of exercise and they eat right.
  1. THEY BELIEVE IN GOD: They know that without the grace of God their effort will be in vain.
  1. THEY HAVE CLEAR WRITTEN DOWN GOALS
  1. THEY INVEST MONEY IN THEIR PERSONAL EDUCATION AND CONTINUOUS DEVELOPMENT
  1. THEY ARE HUNGRIER THAN THEIR COMPETITORS
  1. SOME OF THEM ARE NOT PATIENT WITH MEDIOCRITY AND AVERAGE

 

I hope this was helpful, as a wise sage once said, ‘’Success leaves clues’’ I believe that if you apply some of these principles it will help you get to the shores of your personal greatness.
