6 GREAT THINGS I LEARNT ABOUT SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE.
In my strong quest to succeed in life, I decided within me to find the top secrets of highly successful people, I then realized that they were no secrets but lessons. I have taken my time to study and apply this lesson, and now I have decided to share some of the lessons with you.
1. EVERY SUCCESSFUL PERSON IS KNOWN WITH SOMETHING.
One of the most popular quote I hear every day is ‘’MONEY AND POWER GOES TO THOSE THAT SPECALISE’’. I am sure if I start mentioning names of the richest and most influential people on earth, you would start telling me how they made their fortune. They devoted their time to doing something and they did it very well. Have you ever asked yourself, WHAT WOULD I SPECALIZE IN THAT WOULD GIVE ME TRUE SUCCESS?
Successful people have answered this question and they have worked towards ensuring that they get successful in that field they have chosen before even venturing to other businesses. Rather than joining the complain party, they find ways to fix the complains with what they have decided to specialize in, they are different and they solve problems with what they do. Answer this question, while we move on to the next lesson.
2. THEY HAVE PASSION FOR WHAT THEY DO.
Have you ever taken your time to study people that are best in THEIR departments? Have you ever noticed that they have a special kind of hunger for the course they study, and that is why they are willing to go extra mile to read and do more research after lectures? Do you know that you can also be the best only if you decide to add passion and positive drive in whatever you do?
I have noticed that the major difference between a poor mechanic and a rich mechanic is the passion in which they display while they are at work. They are always happy and that makes them take their time to focus more on the work they are doing rather than complaining. This is a great secret few people know and this few people are the successful people. It is the passion that brings determination and action.
3. THEY ARE STUDIOUS IN WHAT THEY DO.
Passion without determination can never produce success. An artist that loves drawing and has the talent for drawing, but is not serious in his drawing would not be able to achieve success. All successful people know that putting passion into action is the perfect reaction for success. Passion is important, but you have to go extra mile to make sure that you put that passion of yours into action to ensure that you achieve that success you have always desired.
4. THEY DON’T FOCUS ON THEMSELVES ALONE.
One of the secrets of highly successful students is the fact that they are always willing to help others in achieving their own goals. They are not the ‘ONLY ME’’ kind of personality, they are the ‘’ALL OF US’’ kind of personality. This is because they believe that giving what you have helps you to retain it.
Successful people build their success around others, and they are always willing to help people with what they do. Successful businessmen do not just sell their products because they want to make money, but they sell their products because they want to solve the needs and problems of others, and they want to make people happy. Don’t forget that passion + action + focusing on only yourself would never give you genuine success. Developing others is a characteristic of successful people.
5. THEY ALWAYS REMAIN FOCUSED.
Someone once asked a question, and I have always had to go back and think about the question. He said ‘’If Messi had relented on his laurels after he had won the best footballer of the year for the 1st time, would he have won it again?’’. The answer is a very big NO and I realized that all successful people have this trait in them; they don’t stop at their first success because they are always desperate to achieve more, and they always want to perform more than the previous success.
Just like in every race, each runner has a personal best, and during each race the runner tries to beat his previous personal best even if he would not come out first. Mind you, even the best doesn’t run to be just the 1st, he runs to set a new record. That is a major reason why people on 1st class still go to class to read because they understand that they have to continuously be at their best.
A good way of always staying focused is by knowing the way you accept flattery and prolonged praise. Many people have been derailed because of the words they have heard from others, they have been deceived so they decided to rest on their laurels because they believed that even if they don’t work hard like before, they would still turn out to be the very best they used to be which is a very big lie. Successful people are always focused.
6. THEY DON’T GIVE EXCUSES.
Successful people understand that the road to success is paved with failures, trials and tribulations, and without these trials there cannot be testimony, and without this story there cannot be a shout of glory. They have set goals for themselves, and this makes them realize that they have started the journey and they must come out successful.
It’s just like a football match going on, and immediately after 1st half, the team decides to pull out of the match because they are losing. If so many people have pulled out after some few trials, then our world would not be as comfortable as it is today. Rather than giving excuses for your failure, which actually nobody wants to hear, you must be able to pick yourself up after every defeat until you get to your final destination. This is a secret of highly successful people.
I AM VERY SURE YOU ENJOYED THIS GREAT LESSONS FRIEND. ALWAYS DO MAKE SURE THAT YOU TRY THEM OUT BECAUSE I AM SURE YOU DESIRE TRUE AND GENUINE SUCCESS JUST LIKE I DO. HAVE A BLESSED DAY.
With much love, i remain yours in success.
