5 Secrets To Having Continuing Success

Feb 20, 2008
Develop these 5 attributes of a successful person, and you will find yourself moving quickly toward your goals in life!

* You must have a thick skin: Any time someone says no to you, it might seem offensive. Jealous people don't want you to get ahead--they try to demean you . If you learn to "fluff it off", you'll find yourself much more successful in the long run.

Ducks have feathers that are tight and their density act like oil-it keeps the duck dry and warm. So when water (cold or otherwise) lands on the back of a duck, it simply rolls off. Let criticism roll off your back in a similar manner-because if you are going to be successful, you will have your share of criticism. Count on it.

* Follow the leader: Learn to obey someone who knows how to lead. If you want to be a good leader, then learn to be a good follower first. Being loyal to a good leader is one of the steps to being successful.

Once you have learned how to obey and to follow directions, you can lead others and understand what commands and orders do for an organization and an individual. Consider this: 175 of the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies are former US Marines, and 27 US Presidents served in the military.

* Courage: bravery is not courage, but you cannot have courage without being brave. Courage is the moral fortitude to stand up for your character (touched on in the last article) and to do the right thing-even in the face of adversity.

When you have courage, you follow through on your vision. It's on display every day and only the courageous have the ability to get the most out of life. When you have the strength of your conviction, find the courage to put it in to action. You won't be sorry you did.

* Intolerance: not exactly what you might expect to find in an article about success, but each of us must be intolerant of any number of things: intolerant of abuse, of injustice, of the things that you know are immoral, unethical, or illegal. If there's anything in this world you should be intolerant of, those are some of them. I hope you are an intolerant person-in the right way.

* A Good Sense of Humour: The road we travel is filled with potholes and obstacles. You may sometimes find yourself up against one of them. If you get knocked for a loop, try to get back up and laugh it off--You'll feel much better in the long run. You can't move past something if you continually dwell on it--and you'll be very bitter and angry. This way you'll be much happier on your way to the top.
