I’ve always been fascinated by the mindset of the super successful, the discipline, the focus, the determination in the face of difficulties, what makes them different. Let’s see how many of these things  you have? 

Great Habits. 

Unsuccessful people have lousy habits. Habits like smoking, drinking, taking drugs, watching too much TV. You see, successful people are where they are today because of their habits. Habits determine ninety five percent of a person’s behavior. If we think that you are today, everything that you accomplish in the future is determined by the quality of the habits that you form. What I’ve found that is the very best people have the best habits. You see, successful people are simply those with successful habits. Successful habits could be getting up in the morning. Meditate, read, and exercise regularly.

Incredibly Driven. 

How driven are you? Now, I’m not talking about you being a nightmare to work with or bullying other people. I’m talking about you. Pushing yourself to get results is your personal drive that turns your ideas into actions into results. It is your personal drive that keeps you going when things get tough. It is. Your personal drive enables you to bounce back from disappointment from setbacks. So how driven are you or are you lazy? Do you procrastinate? Do you put things off? You see, for the first five years of my career? I didn’t take a single day off. I was working 10, 12, 14 hours every single day for five year strict. Why? Because I was driven. I was driven to provide for my family. I was driven to prove other people wrong. And today I am driven by my mission. How driven are you? 

Successful People are Confident in their Abilities

You see the two biggest enemies to success are self-doubt and Fear of the unknown. We struggle with self-doubt. We worry. Are we ready for this? Are we good enough? Do we actually have what it takes to succeed? Confidence is nothing more than believing in yourself and believing in yourself is nothing more than doing the things that you once didn’t believe that you could do. You see, confidence comes from competence. It is easy to believe in yourself when everyone believes in you. That’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about believing in yourself when you’re not ready, believing yourself, when no one believes you, when everyone tells you that you cannot do it, that you cannot make it, that you don’t have what it takes.

That is when you need to develop the unshakable self-confidence to believe that you can do it. And confidence is not the same as arrogance. The arrogance is thinking that you are above everybody else. Confidence is knowing that no one is above you. Do you feel confident enough in your own abilities that you can do what it takes? Are you willing to bet on yourself? Not just words, but action. How often do you invest in yourself? Are you willing to put everything you have on the line for your goals and for your dreams? Do you bet on yourself or do you procrastinate? Do you hesitate? Are you a perfectionist? Do you suffer from paralysis analysis?

You might have the best ideas and most brilliant ideas in the world, but if you cannot, particularly those ideas, you don’t know how to communicate those ideas to other people. You won’t go anywhere if communication skills come in many forms. I’m talking about reading the email or writing a social media post or conducting a meeting or speaking one on one, speaking on the phone, talking with a prospect, or even speaking to a large group of people. All those fall under communication skills. One of the things that I did that changed my life early on in my career is I joined Toastmasters to hone and evolve my public speaking skills. I was also learning from a mentor to develop my copywriting skill, which is communication. The written forms how to use words in print to persuade somebody. So all successful people, they have this one thing in common: the ability to influence, persuade, inspire other people. 

Growth Mindset. 

Mark Cuban, which is three hours a day. Bill Gates reads at least one hour per day. I have been going to two to three books per week for years now. I’m still constantly learning all the time. I’m not just talking about reading a book. It could be listening to a podcast, talking to other successful people, getting coaching from your mentors. But successful people, we’re always learning and growing, and we never stop. One time I was asking a very successful person out for lunch. He’s been very successful for so many years. He’s in the merger and acquisition space. He’s had multiple successful exits, so multiple companies at a very young age where we sat down and we’re sitting across each other. And when we had that meal, the first thing that he did was he pulled out a journal and took notes and started asking me questions. I was the one who wanted to learn from him, but it turned into a learning session that he’s learning from me. I’ll never forget that because you see, the more you know, the more you realize you don’t know, the less you know, the more you think, you know.

Embrace Failures. 

Do you embrace failures or do you take failures personally? You see successful people. They would be callously positive about the future. They always speak positively about the future where things are going as if it’s already happened, even though there’s no way that it can happen. They believe in themselves, but they have positive expectations about their future. Walt Disney was fired by a news editor saying that he had no imagination and no creativity. Steven Spielberg was rejected three times by film school before getting his huge break. Colonel Sander, at the age of 56, got rejected a thousand times for his recipe before a restaurant picked it up.

You will notice the most successful people in any field. They are usually the ones who have failed more than anybody else. You see the difference between a successful person and everyone else. It’s not a lack of strength. It’s not a lack of knowledge It’s a lack of will and Winston Churchill saids it best. ‘Success is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm’. Sales and closing. For example, the most successful salespeople. The highest paid successful closers in the world. Guess what? They are the ones who experience ejections on a day to day basis more than anybody else, and that’s what makes them successful. Success is on the razor’s edge of failure. 

High EQ

Not IQ, but EQ. Successful people may not be the smartest people in the world, but they surround themselves with smart people. They may not be the best students in the world, but yet they demonstrate a high degree of emotional intelligence. You see, when it comes to Success, EQ  eat’s IQ for breakfast. Now IQ Mostly is genetic, What you’re born with. However, EQ could be developed. Learn and we find successful people. They have a high degree of emotional intelligence, meaning that they don’t crack under pressure. They stay calm. They know how to deal with stress. They know how to deal with anxiety even when things don’t go their way. 

Self Awareness

This means that successful people know what they’re good at, what they’re not good at, what their strengths are and what their weaknesses are. They know how to manage their emotions. They refuse to feel inadequate, resentful, disappointed when failure hits them. So how many of these signs do you have? How likely are you going to be successful if you have a few of these signs? Congratulations. Chances of you becoming successful is quite high. If you have all these signs, then the chances of you becoming successful is very, very high. Now, having these signs is one thing, but you need one more thing and that is you combine your signs with skills. That’s how you truly become successful. Sometimes this is just your potential. How do you turn your potential into profit? You need skill. My new book, Unlock It, I’m going to give you the key, the key that you need to unlock all that potential within you.
