7 Characteristics of Success

7 Characteristics of Success

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other. ~Abraham Lincoln

Today is the first day of Chinese New Year. This is the year of the Dragon.  Do you want to start the New Year right and breed success? Develop the following characteristics of successful people:

1.     Passion: Find something that you love to do because getting success is passionate about what your want to do. There is a fire burning in you so that you are self driven and motivated to get things done.

Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.  ~David Frost

2.     A clear goal: Know what you want in life. Be very sure it is your heart’s desire. It is something you enjoy doing; it’s good for you and beneficial to others. Decide wisely, and plan ahead.  The most important thing is to write it down. Look at it every day and stay focused.

Success is the progressive realization of predetermined, worthwhile, personal goals. ~Paul J. Meyer

3.     Lifelong learning:  The thirst for new information and the urge to learn new things are the ways to go forward in life. Read a lot and mix around with intellectual people to update your knowledge. When you learn you grow and be more resourceful.

4.     Persistence: Do you have the determination to follow your dream? Do not be discouraged by defeats and failures. Get up and move on. Be brave and creative to make changes when things do not work out as planned.

Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success. ~Dale Carnegie

5.     Moral values: Do what is right, do not cheat and cause harm to others. Provide real value and avoid cutting corners. Be honest and give your best to protect your reputation.

Success is simple. Do what's right, the right way, at the right time.
Arnold H. Glasow

6.     Hard working: It is not because it is the beginning of a New Year things will just turn out in your favor. Nothing is going to happen until you take concrete action and work hard for the things that you want out of life. It’s not just working hard once in a while it is your daily effort that counts. Overnight success is only the exception and not the rule.

Success is dependent on effort.  Sophocles

7.     Belief: Be confident that you will gain success in your endeavor. Free yourself from the past and be positive about what you can do. Think more about your achievements to boost your self-esteem.

Make it your New Year’s resolution to be successful in life.
