10 Reasons Empaths Are More Likely To Be Successful

10 Reasons Empaths Are More Likely To Be Successful

Empaths display the quality of empathy. According to emotion researchers, empathy and the display of such emotions by empaths is the ability to sense other people’s emotions and be intuitive to know what someone else may be thinking or feeling. This quality is synonymous with success as success is not simply personal but communal. Here is why empaths are more likely to be successful.

1. They are concerned about the success of others

Success cannot be attained without the support and help of others. Empaths do not only focus on their own personal success, they also focus on the success of others. They want other people to be involved and get rewards. When they do this there is a rebounding effect that also triggers their success.

2. They can connect

Their sense of understanding and being in tune with the feelings and emotions of others affords them the opportunity to easily connect with the people around them. Their selfless offers an exchange that pushes others to react to them positively and help them attain their goals.

3. They can activate solutions rather than problems

They can discover and probe matters deeper. Empaths know how to see through us and find why things are going wrong. Rather than dwell on problems empaths seek for answers and possible solutions that will bring success to bear.

4. They can communicate

Empaths know how to communicate clearly and say what needs to be done. They are easily understood just as much as they can understand others. They clearly exude the positivity and clear goals that they need to be achieved.

5. They are not selfish

According to studies, empaths are inclined to helping others. Helping others causes satisfaction and an accomplished spirit that cuts out their own self interested. Such energy to create a better place for others means they are better motivated than most people.

6. They can impact sociably

Empaths want to reach out, something that our society needs and serves the purpose of a better society. They do not see any social, religious or racial divide that will stand in the way of attaining their goals. Actually being able to reach out and connect with people of all sorts helps them to reach their goals.

7. They are unconventional

They do not fit their ideals, values and perceptions into the mainstream approach. They are purpose driven and react to their environment by trying to improve it. Most times they do not have to wait for others to see things their way, they simply craft a pathway from the vision they can behold.

8. They are open

Empaths have a rich imagination. They are free spirited. They love adventure and want to have a taste of the goodness the world has to offer. They are not rigid, but are open to new opportunities and road-maps that will cause the world around them to be more positive driven.

9. They can be great leaders

According to research, managers or leaders who show empathy have employees who report greater happiness and have better health. Since empaths can help their employees reach their personal and career goals, they create a better workplace culture and are better to handle the responsibility of being leaders.

10. They can accept responsibility

At the end of the day empaths are not people pleasers. They just want to have a better environment. Since they are sensitive to the feelings of others they are careful of how they treat them. If they have to apologize or say their “sorry”, they do it and they move on. Empaths can be responsible; they can be apologetic and are self aware. Holding a grudge could be hurting to them and this they know. Thus they can enjoy a personal well being and delight others to be more productive.

9 Things Successful People Do To Always Get What They Want

9 Things Successful People Do To Always Get What They Want

One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was to take on the job of hosting my own weekly radio show. My radio show is about finding some of the most successful people in the world and bringing them on my show to ask them about what they did to become so successful in life and business.

In this article, I’m going to share with you some of the key takeaways I’ve picked up from talking to – and reading about – thought leaders from various fields about the things successful people do. Here, you can get some insights on how to get what you want.

Ready to dive in? Let’s go.

1. They Know What They Want

The first and most important thing that successful people do to always get what they want is so simple that most people forget about it: they figure out what they actually want.

When you know what you want, you will also know how to get what you want. If you’re unsure about what you want in life and business, I’d suggest picking up some career and self-improvement books to help you gain some clarity and focus.

2. They Are Assertive

Successful people know that they need to be both bold and sincere. Balancing these two characteristics is the essence of assertiveness.

Oh, and by the way – being assertive is not a natural talent someone is born with. Assertiveness is a learned skill and anyone can do it, including you!

3. They Learn

You may have heard of the old saying, “great leaders are readers”. For the most part, I’d say this is true.

Let me give you an example. On my radio show, I regularly ask successful people about their habits that lead to success. Do you want to know something really neat? Every single one of them reads books.

Successful people read and learn as much as they can about what they want so that they can get what they want. If you’re curious about how to get what you want, then start reading a book. If you’re low on time, subscribe to a book summary site to get the core concepts of the books in your industry quickly.

4. They Make Things Meaningful

One of the most powerful things successful people do to always get what they want is that they make things meaningful. That is, they ensure that whatever endeavor they decide to embark upon is meaningful to them (and not necessarily to anyone else). They know and understand that it’s only worth it if it matters.

5. They Ask

One big thing that successful people always do to get what they want is this: they ask.

Most people are too shy to ask for what they really want. If you are too shy to ask, you may never know how to get what you want. So, don’t be like most people.

Here’s an exercise you can do to get over it: next time you’re buying something, regardless of what it is, ask for a discount. Just do it. The worst-case scenario is that you’ll get a chuckle from the Barrista at Starbucks. The best-case scenario is that you’ll get comfortable with negotiating when it’s time to buy your next car.

6. They Take Action

Insight without action is useless. Successful people know that to always get what they want, they’ve got to take massive action.

One of the most powerful exercises I’ve ever discovered is this: never leave the sight of a goal without taking some kind of action towards its achievement. In other words, as soon as you decide you want something or as soon as you set a goal of some kind, do something – anything – that shifts you closer towards getting it.

7. They Use Their Time Wisely

Have you ever heard of NET time? It stands for “No Extra Time”.

For example: when you’re driving and sitting in traffic, are you listening to Mylie Cyrus? Or are you listening to an audiobook?

Successful people take NET time seriously. Get yourself some audiobook so you can start listening to the best business and self-improvement books available – all while you’re on your way to work in the morning.

8. They Choose to Lead

You don’t need to have formal authority to become a leader. You just need to choose yourself. All successful people know this, and so should you. Knowing how to get what you want requires knowing how to lead the way for others and yourself.

Don’t wait for anyone else to do it, because the truth is that most people want to be led anyway. So, just step up and claim authority. Be the leader you wish you always had.

9. They Contribute

Successful people know that to get what they want, they have to be willing to help other people get what they want.

What happens when you stop doing your job? What happens when you stop caring about your schoolwork? What happens when you become emotionally disconnected from a relationship?

You suffer – that’s what happens. Successful people know and understand that in order to succeed, they need to contribute. They need to add value to the lives of others. They need to do their best so that they can become the best.

So, Now What?

I hope this article has re-ignited the fire that you already had within you to be successful at any endeavor. The reason why I’m stressing the fact that you’ve already got everything you need to succeed and get what you want is that you wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t already motivated to be successful.

At the end of the day, however, all the insights in the world are worth nothing unless you combine them with action. When it’s all said and done, it’s your decision what you do with this list and how you apply it to your life and career.

But if I may, here’s what I would suggest you consider as you get started doing the things to help you succeed:

Review this list of the 9 things successful people do to always get what they want and then compare it with where you currently are at each one of these 9 things. Rate yourself in each one of the 9 things. Next, pick just ONE of them to work on every week.

For example, if you find that you’d like to learn more about the business side of the company you work for, then go read the best business books to help you do that.

Never stop learning. Always feed your mind with the knowledge you need to become as successful as possible within your area or industry. It doesn’t matter how busy you are. We’re all busy. Make the time to expand your knowledge.

And remember: every key learning should be immediately followed with action.
