Being successful is everyone`s dream right? Everyone has some specific goal to achieve, like some people wish to be a successful footballer, a successful entrepreneur, a successful teacher, etc. For me, I want to be a successful blogger.
You can achieve success in many different ways, but something I have noticed that successful people has some common personality traits. I have taken a more in-depth look into these traits and found out why the most successful people have them.
What is the point of being successful in something if you don`t have the love for it? It`s like working a 9-5 job in a place you hate just because it pays your bills; it just does not work. Some passions are better than others, they help other people, or they’re healthier, but any passion is an excellent lead to happiness and happiness leads to success.
Finding a passion is essential to be successful because it`s the passion that gives you a reason to keep moving forward toward your goals. I have seen that by following your passion, it brings you far more opportunities to grow your knowledge and to shape you as a person. It gives you the chance to explore other avenues that may not be made available to those who have their eyes shut.
Contrary to what people may think, motivation and passion are not the same things, but they go hand in hand. The simple fact is, without motivation, you can`t get anywhere.
Passion is finding what you love, and motivation is what you need to get there. We dwell in a place where we lack motivation; we`re so consumed by “It`s not the right time” or “I can`t do that” that we don`t try. When you’re motivated, you want to change your life; motivation pushes you towards your goal because of your want for a change. It helps you clarify your passion, so you know exactly what you’re working towards.
Once you`ve set your goal, being motivated helps you prioritize your life, it helps you stay focused and committed to achieving your goal. As we all know, a successful person who has a passion has goals they need to accomplish along the way!
Optimism is the confidence and the hopefulness you need to keep things moving. It`s all well and good having a passion and has no motivation behind it, but you won`t get anywhere without being optimistic. Optimism doesn`t have a smile on our faces every day waking up thinking that this world is a grand gift and we should cherish it, it isn`t always sunshine and rainbows. It means that you can look at the positive side of a situation and try to find the possibilities rather than seeing it as hitting a dead end and giving up. Optimism is seeing a hurdle and a finding a creative way to jump over rather than sticking to the less challenging way.
If you want to be successful, you need to come up with your ideas, your strategies and know how correctly to execute them. Being creative helps you become better at problem-solving that includes areas of your life and work. Instead of coming from a logical approach (which isn`t always a bad thing), your creative side can approach a situation from all angles (helps widen the opportunity). Creativity enables you to see things differently and leads to what could be a better path for you to take when it comes to moving forward.
Success comes with many ups and downs and a high risk of failures, but you have to stay vulnerable to share your creativity and be willing to take the risk that what you create, no-one else will ever see. Being creative is a great confidence booster, because you discover that failure is part of the process and then you`re able to see that failure something that is survivable, it won`t put us down for long and it is, in fact, something that helps us grow and helps us develop our work to make it better, we then aren`t afraid to take a risk.
A successful person is always a risk taker; this doesn’t mean you have to jump out of a helicopter, or bungee jump into a river or what other crazy adrenaline pumping activity you just thought of. You can be a risk taker while having both feet firmly on the ground.
Risk-takers don’t sit around living through other people’s lives, they are the creators who everyone else watches and admires, and they will likely work until they are done. They are incredibly curious, which is excellent when becoming successful because you question everything, even the littlest of details. Your curiosity is not what killed the cat; it is what made the cat find a new path to take which lead him to a better destination.
The thought drives risk takers that anything is possible, you need that mindset if you want to be in the game! A successful person is not successful if they can only open one door at a time. Being a risk taker means you`ll be in one entry while peering into the other, finding the best qualities from both and combining them. You`re not afraid to try things that may not have been done before or things that have been tested many times and worked successfully but you`ve decided to change a few things for it to work better. You`re not afraid to try something and find out that it doesn`t work, or it brings you more problems.
Risk takers are always looking for a new way forward, but they sure don`t take the easy route, and that`s what makes you stand out in the crowd. It`s easy to find someone who has a passion, it`s easy to see someone who is creative, you can motivate people who want it, but those who are willing to take the risk and lose something, rather than not try at all, and those are the most successful people out there.
Success derived from perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence. Working on these five quality traits will make you a successful person for sure.
