I’m surrounded by highly successful people my whole life. They are peculiar and awesome human beings. I’ve noticed that most highly successful individuals tend to share certain personality traits. These characteristics separate the high achievers from the rest of the population.
1. They Never Stop Learning
“I maintained my edge by always being a student; you will always have something new to learn. ” — Jackie Joyner Kersee
2. Patience is Gold
“The two most powerful warriors are patience and time. ”— Leo Tolstoy
3. They’re Stubborn to Live
“Perseverance is a great element of success. If you only knock long enough and loud enough at the gate, you are sure to wake up somebody.” — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
4. Successful People Know How to Prioritize
“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.” — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
5. No Job is Above High Achievers.
“A guy that’s going to do all of the dirty work, that guy that is willing to defend anyone and do the little things and not really care about all of that other stuff. I think every championship team needs that.” — Draymond Green
6. They Know How to Structure Their Goals
“The best thing about the future is that is coming one day at the time.” — Abraham Lincoln
7. The Goals of Others are Important
“Instead of wasting our time attempting to defeat each other, let’s find a way that will make both of us gain and go home satisfied.” — Yair Lapid
8. Working Smart is Not Enough
“Work hard, and you will earn good rewards. Work smart and you will earn great rewards. Work hard and work smart, and you will earn extraordinary rewards. ”— Mashona Dhliwayo
9. They Don’t Live in The Past
“Yesterday’s home runs don’t win today’s games.” — Babe Ruth
10. Listen More Than You Speak
“We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.” — Epictetus
If you aim for the stars, you’re going to fall numerous times before you succeed. It’s important to get up and keep going. Eventually, you’re going to create your own luck.
