Below is The 10 Big Secrets Of Successful People, Relax and enjoy!
1. They're Curious.
Successful people are known for their curiosity, they're keen when it comes to learning new stuff, " The day you stop learning, the day you stop growing ".
The popular Mary Slessor that stopped the killing of twin was curious, she learnt their reasons and found out it didn't worth the killing, she frustrated the old tradition that supported killing of twin with her creativity..
Successful people don't do things because people are doing it, the try to know " WHY".
2. They're Pertinacious.
Successful people don't give up, they're determined and persistent.
"By Perseverance the snail reached the ark", successful fail to give up. They just won't give up...
" Success is achieved and maintained by those who keep trying ", successful people tried but failed and guess what?
They Never loose hope!
3. They're Focused.
Successful people know the herculean goal they're chasing and they refuse to get distracted.
They don't allow themselves to be distracted by Flirting, Money, Friends etc. they're focused because they understand that distraction can make them fail.
They try as much as they can not to be distracted, " Distraction is a trick to pull you down ".
4.They Learn From Failure.
Successful people sees failure as a learning spot and a building-bridge to success.
I have heard many successful people say " I wish failure keep coming because it's a sign that success await me".
I usually tell people never to give up because they failed, if your plan fails, you don't stop planning, you plan better and move on..
Failure is a factor that Inspires the the winner, and its also a chance or rather privilege to begin more intelligently.
5. They are game changers.
Successful people love changing the game, the pattern its been played or changing the entire game.
Another word for 'game changer' is creativity, successful people are creative; any field they venture into, they try not to do what others are doing, they do theirs uniquely. If at all they'll do what others are doing, they do it better by utilizing the flaws of others to strengthen theirs. that's the game changing!
Creativity: the power to connect the seemly unconnected.
A man loved reading books, he order for different book and it was delivered to him within sometime. he however felt the time taken for the book arrival was much and he wanted it as quick as, you know what he did?
He refused to be frustrated but rather changed the game. He came up with his own method of buying and delivering books which appears to be more fast than the method he was using then. Not only that, guess what?
His method is one of the most used and fastest when it comes to purchasing book. This man is Jeff Bull from Amazon (founder).
" I never made money from complaining but from dealing with frustration throw at me". Strive Masiyiwa.
Instead of complaining or copying others, they prefer to change the game..
Take a look at Snapchat; Facebook; Twitter; Instagram, they're all social platforms for communication but are different from each other. Its called Game Changing.
If Snapchat Copied Facebook clone, they wouldn't have got were they are!
Are a Game Changer?
6. They're ready for change.
Successful people are always ready to change to any direction.
You'll agree with me that the pattern used to do jobs in the late 80s isn't the same pattern we are using now, for a worker as of 80s to be able to do the current job we have now needs to change the pattern he used in the 80s, else he won't be able to do the work we do currently.
I believe you've got that, that's exactly what successful people do, they're flexible to change..
Things change everyday, you can't use yesterday pattern for today. This is what people fail to understand.
Strive masiyiwa title an article of his: "Be prepared to change your career", he emphasised on change..
So today, permit me to tell you; Be prepared to change your career.
Changing your career doesn't mean changing or quitting your current job, No! But changing the way you do the job.. Else the whirlwind of change will blow you away like chaff because you refused to comply by embracing change.
" Successful people realize the magical powers of change and its outcome".
Lastly, no matter how good you're in what you're doing, you can still do it better. So learn to change to any direction required..
7. They're quick listeners.
Successful people don't talk too much or better still, they don't talk anyhow.
They're good at listening because of their curious nature but will be very careful of the kind of things they relay to you.
Dreams can be killed when it enters the wrong ears, and guess what?
Dream killers are everywhere, some come as friends while others as enemies. So learn to control your speech or words else failure awaits you!
8. They're dream chasers.
Successful people chase dream not money and later on make money from their dream.
"Ideas not money liberate a nation" Philip Emeagwali.
Your dreams are ideas that if properly utilized and maximized will transform you for good.
Making money isn't a dream but money can be a tool for achieving your dream and your dream also yields money!
It's very tragic for you to live in this wide world without a dream,
The future belongs to those that believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Strive Masiyiwa (Econet founder) once talked about how he rejected an offer that could generate real cash for him and follow his dream despite at that moment he wasn't financially stable and now his dream is fetching him desired money.
Your life aspiration shouldn't be all about money making but touching lives with your dream.
Your dream isn't yet a dream if it hasn't touched lives or life. In fact your dream should be an inspiration to help someone achieve his or her own dream.
Dream isn't sleeping and waking up or rather nightmare or fantasy but is a clear picture of the future. Dream is like a direction of your life.
Start dreaming today, so you'll also shout ' I have a dream ' like Marthin Luther King.
" Be prepared to die for your dreams "
" Don't ever ignore your childhood dreams "
" Its dream that makes life beautiful "
"Dream big and act, you'll definitely succeed "
"Dream maybe delayed but keep your hope alive "
Let me ask you, what's the meaning of life without a dream? (Answer it).
Chase your dream and don't stop dreaming!
9. They're risk takers.
Successful people ain't afraid to take risk.
In fact it's risky not to take risk. Successful people don't allow the word fear to appear in their dictionary as its one major nightmare for not taking risk. With fear in you, you can't take risk.
Risk taking is an opportunity, if you pass it then be prepared to be poor!
R= Repeatedly. POOR!
Being successful isn't bread and butter or bread and egg, it requires sacrifice which involves taking risk.
"Gold becomes more brighter when it passes through fire".
"Rome wasn't built in a day".
Eradicate FEAR; False Evidence Appearing Real. Take Risk because achievers set goal others are scared to...
10. They work diligently.
Successful people do their work carefully and with great effort, they ain't lazy and careless.
They do things meticulously, for you to be rewarded with success, you need to work delligently.
Great achievers don't just fold hands and make mere wishes. No they don't!
You can only conquer by striving to conquer, don't allow laziness and procrastinating to rule your life.
If you wish to succeed, work hard and do it painstakingly...
Some quote that will help you achieve big!
