1. Positive Mindset And Outlook
Successful people are never negative. They realize how powerful the mind is and its influence over our decisions and outcomes. For this reason, they feed the mind constantly with positive thoughts and energy through things such as reading, learning, exercise and meditation. They stay as far away from negativity as possible and cut all negative people, relationships, and situations out of their lives.
This is arguably the most important quality I believe. Because without self-discipline, it doesn’t matter if you have any of the other qualities because you will never stay focused and see things through. To persist and work and something for long periods of time takes massive amounts of self-discipline. This is why you hear successful people say they are successful because they did the things they needed to do when they didn’t “feel” like doing them. Stay disciplined people!
3. Hardest Workers
The CEO’s and self-made millionaires of the world didn’t get to the top by lounging around all day. If you analyze and follow the most successful people at your organization or business you will find they are also the hardest working. This means they are the first to show up and last to leave. If you just put in the minimum amount of effort required how do you expect to ever achieve extraordinary results?
4. Love What They Do
What causes people to work at something endlessly for years without seeing any real results? This would drive the average person insane but not when you truly love what you are doing! It is all about the passion! The most successful people in the world love Mondays. They love going to work in the morning and staying late. They don’t actually “work” because they love every minute of what they are doing. To be successful at something you need to love what you are doing and be passionate about it!
5. Never Stop Learning
The successful person realizes that education isn’t finished once you have graduated school. Education is a lifelong process that never stops. If you do your research you will find out that the most successful people in the world also dedicate the most time to reading. Many of them read for hours every day. Warren Buffett reads voraciously, spending 80% of his day reading and claiming he reads on average between 500 and 2000 pages a day. Mark Zuckerberg did a challenge of reading at least two books a month, Bill Gates reads every single day. The list goes on people!
I had so many great points to share. The list was endless so I chose five of my favorites. Stay tuned as I will be posting the second part to this article!
