10 Important Qualities For Success That Are Often Overlooked by vickysomtee: 6:46pm On Jun 13, 2018
In order, to achieve happiness and become a successful person, you must acknowledge the fact that great qualities are the ultimate success factor. If you have the vision to make a change in your outer world, you must go to work, like a computer programmer at a keyboard, to reprogram your subconscious mind, your world of values, beliefs, and inner convictions so that the person you are inside is exactly equivalent of the life you want to enjoy on the outside.

If you Really want to bring success into your life, you should cultivate yourself just as you'd cultivate a garden for the best yield.

No matter what you do, your greatest goal, beyond what you are trying to accomplish at the moment, is to achieve your own success. An individual can exercise a key success factor for developing good traits to achieve the kind of happiness everyone longs for.

If you want to achieve your life's dream and be widely successful, you need to model yourself after people who are living their dreams. The more quality traits for success you have in common, the higher your chances for being widely successful.

The qualities we posses is much more than just our reputation, it's what defines us. Our reputation is what others see about us. Our character is who we really are, even when no one` is watching. Having "Good character" means doing the right thing just because it is right to do what is right - Winston Churchill.

What do you need to find and develop within yourself to be successful? The answer comes from looking at those who have created success in a variety of fields. These traits may sound simple, but they lead to remarkable results.
These quality traits for success are the core DNA of every successful person which you will definitely need.

1. Work With Time .

With the popular quote "Time Waits For No One", its no new thing knowing the importance of Time in life. But knowing the importance of time, many people still don't make use of it in the right way.
How well do you schedule your activities? How well do you follow up these schedules? How well do you use your time? These are questions needed to be solved by you.

You live in real time, a world in which all time flies when you are having fun or doing some other things.

The good news is that real time is mental. It exists between your ears. You create it. Anything you create, you can manage. It's time to remove any self-sabotage or self-limitation you have around "not having enough time," or today not being "the right time" to start a business or manage your current business properly.

There are only three ways to spend time: thoughts, conversations and actions. Regardless of the type of business you own, your work will be composed of those three items.

2. Be Action Oriented

Action goes with time!!

Waking up every morning with sweet dreams of how successful you will be isn't the deal. The real deal is waking with sweet dreams and taking actions no matter how little to achieve that dream. The more you waste time, the more money you loose.

A perfect definition of being "ACTION ORIENTED" is "DOING THE RIGHT THING AT THE RIGHT TIME. Taking action at the right time is the key.
One Of the qualities of self-made millionaires is that they think carefully and then make decisions quickly. They are self-disciplined to take action and to carry out the decisions they have made.

They move fast and they get quick feedback from their actions. Even at their mistakes, they quickly make self-corrections and try something else.
The key to Success is for you to try. Successful people are decisive and they try far more things than other people do. According to the Law of Probabilities, if you try far more different ways to be successful, the odds are that you will eventually find the right way for you, at the right time.

3. Be Unique As A Person.

Uniqueness is important in all walks of life to be more successful, as a professional, as a new business. But, there is the question how to make yourself to be unique? Uniqueness of one’s own self is one of the most important competitive advantages in today’s world.

Uniqueness of one's own self is being who you are, without trying to be someone else or pretending to be something else.

To become successful, you need to be creative. You must posses the ability to create new things, new strategies, new ideologies out of nothing.
The truth is that there is a tendency to fail when you pretend to be something else or make use of other people strategies.

4. Grow Socially

Janice Wald, blogging at
mostlyblogging.com inspired me at this. One thing i learnt and loved so much about her was the way she socialized and interacted with her fellow bloggers, and i guess this took her as far as she is now. Before knowing Janice Wald, i had always played as a "ONE MAN SQUAD", and with this, i had no progress.

This is one quality traits for success many people still don't recognize.

How well you relate with others determines how far you will go. Meeting people, sharing ideas and opinions, and best of all listening to their points of view is a step forward to success.

How does it help? By interacting with them, you learn from their experiences and mistake, you also get to know the steps they took or how they conquered their challenges to become successful.

You really need to Learn to roll safely with others. Don't just be a "ONE MAN SQUAD" Like i used to be, LOL.

5. Researches.

Most, if not all successful people, make more researches. If you believe that success leaves clues and that you can be successful by acting and thinking like a successful person, then making researches should be part of your daily life.

How well do you try to learn new things and know more about them? How well do you try to widen your knowledge? I've come to realize that the more researches you make, the easier your challenges to be successful become.

Its so important to make researches that will make the most difference in you. Researches helps you become a true expert in your field of passion and also challenges the limiting beliefs you have about yourself.

6. Think Positively .

Permit me to say, negative mindsets kills faster than virus, especially when you drive it not only towards your success race but also to your personal life. The moment you start thinking negatively, failure comes next. And failure should never be an option.

At the Starting point, no matter how difficult it is, always push a positive mindset towards your race. Challenge that limiting belief in you! As far as success is concerned, you will definitely make it.

7. Consistency.

By definition, consistency is mostly referred to as adherence to the same principles in a steadfast way. Consistency is one of the main key to success no matter what you are doing.
Being consistent simply means to fully dedicate yourself completely to a task, activity or goal, fully staying engaged without distraction.

Consistency requires a commitment on your part. it requires that you commit yourself to a sustained effort of action over the long term.

No matter how little your efforts are, as long as you are consistent in pushing forward, success awaits you. Making a new move every single day is the best way forward. Remember, Slow and steady wins the race!!

8. Patience

Consistency moves with patience, just as patience goes with a positive mindset. Having patience is the ability to tolerate waiting and delays without becoming frustrated or agitated. Moreover, it is the ability to remain calm when facing difficulties and adversity. Sometimes, even with patience we still get agitated or uncalm.
It takes guts to claim a piece of the pie for your own. But you know what else it takes, and a lot of it?

It takes patience. So much patience. It can take years of patience, or even a decade of grueling works before you start to reap big results from all the time and hard work you've put in, and it can be frustrating as hell.

If not all, then 99% of people who failed are those who never knew they were very close to their success. And that's because they lack patience.
While grinding harder day by day, always push the positive mindset that one day, you will definitely make it!

9. Embrace Risks.

Many are turned off by Risks. It is actually easier and more comfortable to sit down in the safe spot and wait. But this is what distinguishes the doers from the dreamers. While the dreamers are still sleeping and waiting for the best time to take action, the risk takers are more likely to be successful because they do not limit themselves and are willing to put their energy when every other person are hesitant.

Don't be scared to take risk or begin to have the thought that you might fail while taking risk. Even if you fail, two things are involved;

You learn from your mistakes.

And you become stronger to face your next challenge.

This is just a natural phenomenon that no one can change!

But it is not just about taking risks, think before making a move. Don't just take a thoughtless risk!

10. Remain Focused.
People who experiences success know how to concentrate. They realize that they cannot do everything and they focus on the activities that will give them the highest return on the goals they want to achieve. They don't believe in the hype of multi-tasking and they know that the fastest way to finish your to-do's is doing them one at a time.
Stay focused, go after your dreams and keep moving towards your goals.

Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them.

My key to dealing with stress of being successful is simple and soft: just stay cool and stay focused. The moment you lose a little focus, failure begins knocking at the door.

That's It!

I am certain you have either reconfirmed your qualities or have created action plans to develop the qualities you are lacking. Focus on cultivating one or two qualities at a time. Once your beliefs and actions are aligned with those of a successful person, you'll be amazed by how successful you become.

Actually knowing and believing that you have the power to succeed can be difficult, but it's something that can really benefit you. We all have the ability to succeed in life and get what we want! We just don't know how to reach our full potentials.

Sometimes you need to act like a beast just to succeed. You need to see things and act in an extraordinary way!
