In the previous article – DIE POOR OR GROW RICH, I mentioned the 12 qualities of highly successful people. Today I am going to explain those qualities in detail.
QUALITIES OF SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE:-
-SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DREAM HUGE:-
Don’t let small mind convince you that your dreams are too big. Rich people in the world do not dream big, in fact they dream huge. You can only achieve something if you can imagine it. They are determined to be unique and driven to think big. Poor people are afraid to dream big that’s why they cannot achieve anything big in life. The poorest person is not the one without a penny, the poorest person is the one without a dream.
“THINK BIG AND DREAM BIG”
-THEY DO WHAT THEY LOVE:–
The only way to do great work is to love what you do (Steve jobs). Have the courage to follow your heart because it knows what you truly want to become. All the successful people in the world do what they love. BILL GATES never took a single leave from his office in his whole career. Same is true for MARK ZUCKERBURG and STEVE JOBS.
-THEY ARE ALWAYS RESILIENT:-
All the rich people in the world never give up in their bad times. They bounce back after their failure with more energy and confidence. Winners are not perfect they are only fearless and resilient. If they fall nine times they will stand up the tenth time.
-THEY HAVE A UNIQUE SKILL SET:-
Successful people become the master in their field. They have a unique skill and quality which makes them different from the crowd. They create a skill for which they will be remembered for. Everyone wants to be unique but these people have the guts to be unique and work for their success. To be unique and great you have to fight the greatest battle in your life till your last breath.
-THEY HAVE A CLEAR SET OF DIRECTIONS:-
Successful people know where they have to go. They have a clear vision of their goal. A little push in the right direction can make a big difference, because moving in the wrong direction will take you farther from your goal. Successful people think like a billionaire and hustle like it is the last day of their life.
-THEY NEVER THINK ABOUT FAILURE:–
Winners know they can fail, they know everything can be lost and they can be fully destroyed. But they never give up on their dreams because of the fear of FAILURES. They have that burning desire inside them that never lets them down. A winner is just a loser who tried one more time. They make it happen and shock everyone.
-THEY HAVE A WORKAHOLIC MENTALITY:-
Successful people can work day and night. They can work 18 hours a day. They have a passion for their work and they never get tired from doing their work. You can’t have a million-dollar dream with a minimum wage work ethic.
-THEY GET AROUND THE RIGHT PEOPLE:-
Associate yourself with people of good quality, it’s better to be alone than in bad company. “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with,” says American entrepreneur and motivational speaker Jim Rohn. Good and wise friend will build you, raise you, help you to achieve your life’s goal, but a bad friend will always lead you towards the ground, he will teach you all the bad habits he has.
-THEY DEDICATE THEIR LIEF TO EXCELLENCE:–
Excellence is not a skill, it is an attitude. Successful people always focus on creating a masterpiece. A poor and unsuccessful person is a mechanic of his field but a successful person is an engineer of his field. Successful people prefer to work 18 hours a day on their product rather than 8 hours a day working for someone else.
-THEY DEVELOP COURAGE AND PERSISTENCE:-
If you have the courage to do anything and everything for your dream, then you can achieve what you want in life. Courage is not the absence of fear but it is a belief that one can achieve whatever he wants . A lot of people don’t want to try anything new in life because they are afraid that they will fail. Average minds analyze and great minds execute. Believe in yourself and who you are, know that there is something inside you greater than any obstacle.
-SUCCESSFUL PERSON ARE OPTIMISTIC:-
All the successful people are optimistic in life. They know what they are doing is right and one day they will be successful. They see the opportunities in every situation and they keep on finding a solution for every problem in their life. Poor minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune but great minds rise above it.
–THEY ARE AVID READERS:–
All the successful and rich people in the world at least read 500 pages a day. In fact, BILL GATES reads at least 5000 pages a day. Reading helps you to find a solution for every problem in life. It helps you to build a positive attitude in life. Reading can help you achieve the experience of many successful people in the world which helps you grow faster. Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.
Now you know what you need to be successful. This article is a BLUEPRINT for success. But remember, only reading about these qualities will never get you anywhere, it’s your application of these qualities that will. Knowledge and actions go hand in hand.
Without knowledge action is useless and knowledge without action is futile.
