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 Tap Into the Power of Positivity

            As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

            “Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

            When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

            Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

            We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

            But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

            So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

            It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

            1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

            Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

            2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

            This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

            You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

            3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

            This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

            4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

            How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

            So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

            If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

            And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
