7 Things Successful People Have in Common

If you are saying that successful people are lucky to have made it, please stop and rethink. Most people are leading a life that is a direct result of their decisions, thoughts and behavior. This is why some are successful and some or not. It is has nothing to do with luck. We are where we are, because of who we are. This is why if you are not where you want to be in life, you will have to change something. So below are the 7 things successful people have in common.

1. They are dreamers. Successful people are big dreamers. They set big dreams and big goals. Unlike ordinary people who dream of getting a promotion or finding a better job, successful people dream about changing the world, making a difference and touching people’s life. Don’t be afraid to dream big, you can do it. Don’t limit yourself; you can be successful if you want to be. The line between successful people and unsuccessful people is a very thin one. Crossing it is easy, when you have the right mindset.

2. They are willing to fail. Successful people know that success doesn’t come easy and that they are bound to fail along the journey.  Do you know how many times Thomas Edison failed before inventing the light bulb? He failed 1000 times. Failing 1000 times and he still didn’t quit. Why? Because he was willing to fail and he was learning something from each and every failure. He knew that failure is the stepping stone to success. As long as you learn your lessons when you make a mistake you are moving forward. You need to be persistence in everything you do.

3. They know that they make their own luck. Successful people know that luck is the good fortune we determine for ourselves.  The harder you work, the luckier you get. You won’t randomly get lucky and successful people know that. They will do at least one thing every single day to put themselves in a better position to get lucky.

4. They set real goals that they can accomplish. Successful people make a daily list of goals to achieve each morning when they wake up. This allows them to map out what needs to be done first, second and so on.  Their goals are very focused, big yet obtainable and are aligned to their strengths.

5. They are disciplined. The most important trait of successful people is that they are very strict with themselves. They understand the important of self value. They do not procrastinate like many of us. They make definite decision. They are focused and determined to do what they have decided to do. They stick to their decisions and are disciplined with their activities. They follow their schedule very stringently and avoid distractions.

6. They are constantly in the process of learning. They know the more knowledge they have, the further they can go. They read, they try to obtain a new skill. They never stop learning, no matter their age. There is always something to learn in that vast world. That is why I am challenging you to read at least 30 minutes a day. Successful people are always humble.

7. They are seeing the big picture. The problems you are facing today seem a lot bigger than they really are. If you are stressing out about something right now, ask yourself, Will this be a big deal next week or month or year? Stop seeing every day as an isolated event but rather a mere piece of the jig-saw puzzle that is your life. All of the pieces might not be perfect. Some of them might even be discolored, torn, and rotten. But the quality of each singular piece is irrelevant. The important thing is the completed puzzle that is your life. Make these habits second nature, and success will be certain to follow.
