Are you built to succeed?

Building blocks of success
Have you ever wondered what qualities successful people have or why so many people struggle to make their dreams come true? Well here are a few top tips to help you on the road to achieving success.

Only you can truly visualise your success; therefore you need to sets goals and systematically works towards them. If you want to achieve success, you must define your main objectives. Then, break it down into few simpler ones……and set about working on them as they won’t happen by themselves!

You need to be self-disciplined to plan your day and the actions you need to do to achieve success; and then follow through the tasks you have set yourself.

Successful people believe in their skills and talents. Their self-esteem is high. If you don’t believe in yourself you cannot expect others to!

Determination and Optimism
The road to success is never easy so in order to prosper, you need to be utterly determined and develop an optimistic positive view of the world in equal measures.

Timing it is said is everything; therefore it is obvious that ‘patience’ should be a key quality of successful people. Patience is the ability to wait for the fruits of your labour to ripen or for a favourable moment in important negotiations. Knowing when to strike is an important part of practicing patience.

Be a risk-taker
If you are afraid of failure and risk, you will never succeed. At the same time, don’t make hasty decisions. Trust your intuition and weigh up all pros and cons. And if you finally choose risk, take it easy, do it with no fear or regret. There are very few successful people that have not taken risks.

Take ‘ownership’ of what you do and why you do it and become the master of your life in order to create your profit and the life and success that you have always dreamed of.

Emotional Intelligent and Resilience
Ability to control your own emotions and also be able to understand others emotions particularly under stress together with the ability be resilient to stress, is absolutely pivotal for someone who wants to succeed.

Vitality and enthusiasm are qualities that are absolutely essential for successful. They help drive you forward towards your goals. You need energy to succeed. Successful people have high energy. So take care of your health, eat wisely and exercise regularly.

Quite frankly, if you are a lazy coach potato, if you delegate tasks believing that you have abdicated the responsibility, then it is highly unlikely that you will achieve success. Action and consistent hard work is what counts and what at the end of the day pays off.

    I read an article recently that stated that having a high IQ although is great what will get you far is EQ, MQ and BQ. I dated a guy once who was just brilliant very intelligent guy, dad was a surgeon, mum was a surgeon, big brother was a surgeon, he was in medical school on his way to be a surgeon also, little brother guess where he was heading? He ended going to harvard medical school and is now a top gynecologist in the U.S, However although highly intelligent he was not very smart needless to say it drove me crazy. As always great article Trisha.

      Afi – thanks feedback …….I was fascinated by the ‘surgeons stories’…….the reason being is that I don’t believe that to be “successful” you have to reach what is perceived as “the top”……..In other ways you can be “successful” in what might be regarded as a ‘lower grade job’ such as a car mechanic or a waitress…….With regards to your ex-boyfriends this is a case in point…….all that intelligence and no personality! Never a good mix!
