Success has many definitions. Many believe that success only has to do with wealth but I don’t think so. We could achieve success in our careers, marriages, academics, and so on. Success is basically a positive outcome of something. Success could even be something as simple as being a better version of yourself.
While a lot of us want to be successful, we don’t have the attitude towards being successful. In this article, I’ll list five characters of a successful person.
1) Optimistic: You may not achieve good success if you don’t have a positive mindset. A successful person always sees the positive side of things and is optimistic that whatever he/ she is going to do will work out perfectly well. It’s simple logic: if you don’t believe it, you may not receive it. If you are optimistic about something, then you are taking the first step towards achieving success.
2) Critical Thinker: A successful person is one who has the ability to think outside the box. You need to have the ability to think of ways to solve problems and make things work. You should be able to see things from different perspectives and know which one will work best given any circumstances. Creativity is the key to success. Be creative!
3) Serial Hard Worker: To achieve success, you obviously won’t have to sit on your hands. A successful person is very hardworking. I mentioned in my last article (Everything Counts), that you need to work towards achieving your dream to make it happen. If you want to be successful, you need to love working hard, be diligent, and dedicated.
4) High Emotional and Social Intelligence: You remember one of my articles on Quotients? Social intelligence is skills that help you keep relationships with people and emotional intelligence are those that help you understand your emotions and the emotions of others to enable you to communicate effectively. It’s quite obvious that to be successful, especially in business and marriage, you need to be able to keep good relationships and understand people for effective communication. A successful person doesn’t lack in these two quotients.
5) Self Discipline: I wrote an article on this too (Freedom in Discipline). When you are disciplined, you are free; in the sense that you will be able to focus more on the things that will actually be helpful in achieving your goals. To be successful, you need to make up your mind on what you should and shouldn’t allow. Be meticulous about your success- feed your focus and starve your distractions.
