6 Characteristics Among Successful Christians

Jun 22, 2008
How does one become a truly successful Christian? Even though people are diverse, the successful ones share some things in common. Here are six common traits that all successful Christian people have in common...

1. Successful people know themselves. They understand their talents and strengths, and they know how to use them to their advantage.

2. Successful people are open to feedback. They learn from the opinions of others. Even the opinions of less successful people.

3. Successful people are eager to learn and improve. They have a thirst for knowledge and ask questions. As they are lifelong students who continuously reinvent themselves, they adapt to the ideas they consistently learn. They know by acquiring new information they keeps themselves improving.

4. Successful people are curious and not afraid to take risks. They push the envelope, looking for adventure. They explore new options, not fearing mistakes. They know that success depends upon pushing forward toward improvement. They embrace errors because they believe mistakes offer a valuable learning experience.

5. Successful people learn from criticism. They are students, and adversity builds their character. Every successful people can point to a significant critic that affected his or her development.

6. Successful people serve as a role model or mentor for other people. They coach others, helping them focus on improvement, teaching, mentoring and empowering them.

Do you see yourself in any of these six points? If not, there is a quick fix... The answer lies in a simple change of attitude. An attitude that says, "I am confident - in Christ!"

If you noticed, the six characteristics listed above have not even a hint of arrogance in them. Now, there is huge line dividing confidence and arrogance. How to distinguish between the two can be clarified in the following points...

~ A person of confidence always tries to encourage and help others in building their confidence, where as a person of arrogance tries to discourage others.

~ A person of confidence attracts others who are confident, are elevated in their presence, and gets inspiration in their company, whereas an arrogant person creates repulsion in the minds of others because of his or her boastful nature.

~ A person of confidence appreciates the success of other people and shares in his or her's happiness, whereas a person of arrogance discourages and tries to humiliate others and feels jealous of their success.

~ There is joy in being around people of confidence because they are cheerful and can mix freely with everyone else. In the presence of arrogant people, even confident people may begin to feel a little down.

Conclusion

Truly successful Christian people share common traits... traits such as a high degree of confidence, an openness to criticism, a willingness to teach, a great desire to expand their skills, and the ability to remain humble.
