8 Attitudes of Highly Successful People

Many people believe that the successful people of the world have some special giftedness or education that we either don't have or it is simply unattainable for us. The truth is far removed from that myth. People who are successful may or may not have education or giftedness, but they do have the below qualities. Circumstances don't define them

They don't believe that circumstances they were born into or even find themselves in now that define their success, but it is how they handle those circumstances that really matters and defines them as a success.

They learn from their failure

Thomas Edison said, "I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work"

Successful people are not afraid to fail. In contrast, they regard failure as a learning experience. They don't think a great deal about failure. What they do then is to take what they have learnt and actively and consciously incorporate it into their plans, or Mindset.

They are curious

Curiosity is the base for all inventions and startups. Learning to ask 'why', 'what if' and 'I wonder…' are great questions to build into your life if you want to be a more successful person.

They create goals

In my previous post, I have mentioned the importance of goals. Successful people have big goals and envision a well defined outcome. Big goals ignite the spark of enthusiasm. They provide the energy that makes them easier to accomplish. Their goals or dreams are specific in nature and time, they are positive, and they have a clearly defined outcome.

They are problem solver

One of the problems of unsuccessful people is that they often see problems or obstacles in life as unacceptable parts of life and they run away from it. In the end, it doesn't go away but become bigger.Successful people see problems as a natural and normal part of life and rather than running away from it, they solve it.

Confronting Challenge

Many of the most successful ideas throughout history have come from people facing a challenge or crisis and rather than running from it asking 'how can I overcome this'? They are prepared to take a risk and relish the opportunity. They see the opportunities and instead of listing all the reasons why not to do, they find reasons to do.They work from the premiseI canrather than I canʼt. There is no such word as canʼt in their vocabulary is there? Successful people simply always find a solution.

They have determination

Thomas Edison said "Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration". Successful people who actually see their ideas come to fruition are determined to do what it takes. They have the ability to stick with their ideas and see them through no matter what happens. It is the never give up attitude that gets them through.

They keep a positive attitude

Successful people surround themselves with positive people. They try to stay motivated and away from negative or pessimist people.

My favorite is confronting the challenge. Not enough people do that with courage.

I need to work on asking more questions! I tend to ask why in my head but never put into words.

These are traits we should all try to embody if we want to succeed, even with the simplest of things. So often if it is hard, we run or avoid and that will never help us be successful!
