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.
- THEY OUT-WORK THE HERD: They usually come into the office first and leave last. They usually go the extra mile for their customers.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- THEY SURROUND THEMSELVES WITH SMART PEOPLE: They fundamentally believe that they can’t travel to the shores of greatness alone.
- THEY HAVE MENTORS OR COACHES THAT CHALLENGE THEM: If you’ll like me to be your life coach please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
- 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.
- 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.
- THEY SELF-TEACH THEMSELVES NEW NECESSARY SKILLS USING THE INTERNET
- THEY USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO PUSH THEIR AGENDA
- THEY DON’T JUST DREAM, THEY TAKE MASSIVE ACTION: They know that nothing moves until a person moves.
- THEY TRAVEL FOR INSPIRATION AND REFUELING
- 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.
- THEY NETWORK A LOT: They fundamentally know that your network, determines your net worth.
- THEY TAKE THEIR HEALTH SERIOUSLY: Most of them do some form of exercise and they eat right.
- THEY BELIEVE IN GOD: They know that without the grace of God their effort will be in vain.
- THEY HAVE CLEAR WRITTEN DOWN GOALS
- THEY INVEST MONEY IN THEIR PERSONAL EDUCATION AND CONTINUOUS DEVELOPMENT
- THEY ARE HUNGRIER THAN THEIR COMPETITORS
- 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.
