5 Qualities & Attributes which Lead to Success

5 Qualities & Attributes which Lead to Success

Success is in the eye of the beholder. What one views as success, the other may not. What is certain is that it doesn’t come as easy as we may believe. These five qualities will lead you to the pinnacle of success. Just make sure to have those blinders on. You never know when you’ll need them! As you put in effort each day, you will see the fruits of your labour slowly unfolding before your very eyes! I assure you, it is a beautiful sight to behold.

1. Dedication

Without dedication, nothing is possible. You have to be dedicated day in and out to achieve what you term “success.” Relentlessly pursuing what you dream about is dedication. Continuing to do what brings you near your goal is dedication. Dedication has so many forms. When an obstacle arises, you find a way through it, and give your dream one more shot.

    2. Perseverance

    Perseverance is a lot like dedication; however, when we talk about perseverance we talk about the courage, bravery, and confidence that is needed to overcome each of the given obstacles in your way. Difficult times get the most of us; they drain us of our energy and capacity, as well as our capability to move on. The key in perseverance is always holding your head up high. Never let anyone tell you that you can’t. Instead, make yourself so strong that when you are told this, you show the capability to prove you can do anything. In today’s age, anything is possible.

      3. Commitment

      Commitment to what you believe in is probably one of the most important factors in determining whether you will be able to attain success. You have to want it more than air, food, or sleep. Committing yourself promises that you really want whatever you are chasing. It is probably the most important factor that will end up determining if you have success or not.

        4. Resilience

        Holding on to dear life and your goal when the circumstances are not in your favor is termed resilience. It is just as important as the other factors listed here. Pushing through, and trudging, where there is no tomorrow, or no hope, is coined resilience. Resilience empowers you and motivates you. It teaches you to get back up one more time when you feel like no more fuel is left in you. It helps you become a stronger person able to come out of situations with a smile and determination on your face and body!

        There is nothing more tangible than resilience when it comes to your success! Resilience is key to attaining success in any given field. Never ever give up! No matter how you may feel at the present, if you push through and set your mind, you can do anything! The sky is the limit!

          5. Able To Handle Failures

          Being able to handle failures and continue moving on is a part of life. It also has a lot to do with success. More often than anyone hopes, failure is self sufficient. It teaches you a lot along the way. It comes easier than success, but it teaches more than success does. It tells you to keep pushing yourself, even when you think you have given a hundred percent. It just goes on to show you that sometimes a hundred percent is not the limit, and that nothing is perfect.

          We have to keep on motivating ourselves to move one step ahead because there are an infinite amount of possibilities out for you. Just keep on pushing yourself to do your very best. Each time you think you have done the best job you can do, think again! There is always room for improvement. We are all humans and humans can never be perfect. Just keep on doing better. You always have room to do so!

            How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

            How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

            Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

            If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

            1. Breathe

            The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

            • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
            • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
            • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

            Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

            2. Loosen up

            After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

            Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

            3. Chew slowly

            Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

            Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

            Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

            4. Let go

            Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

            The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

            It’s not. Promise.

            Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

            Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

            21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

            5. Enjoy the journey

            Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

            Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

            6. Look at the big picture

            The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

            Advertising

            Will this matter to me…

            • Next week?
            • Next month?
            • Next year?
            • In 10 years?

            Hint: No, it won’t.

            I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

            Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

            7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

            You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

            Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

            8. Practice patience every day

            Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

            • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
            • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
            • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

            Final thoughts

            Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

            Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
