What It Takes To Be Successful



No Job Is Forever!

In preparation for this article, I set out to determine the most common qualities of the highly successful. As you might image many have written on this topic. However, a consensus or listing of common attributes was difficult to ascertain.

We’ve all heard it said, do what you love and you will never work another day in your life! While I get that, I’d love to be paid to do what I would do anyway. The truth is, however, that even though our hobbies, for example, may not feel like work, we tend to put in many hours and work very hard at perfecting whatever that thing is that we enjoy so much.

So, start your business –

  • Doing What You Are Good At –
    That should be a good start toward producing an excellent product or service.

  • Do What You Love – (if you are good at it)
    You’re likely to be a happier camper every day. Now when is that ever a bad thing?

    I find that I tend to enjoy quite a bit those things that I am good at. How about you?

    The flip side, I’m sure I would love to sing on stage (preferably with an instrument in hand). However, while I’m happy belting out songs loudly and out of tune in my shower or in my car, the fact is no one is ever going to pay to listen.

  • Love What You Do –
    If you are unhappy in your business life with what you do or your business environment, success is likely to be difficult to obtain. We’ve all worked with people who hated their jobs – not good – for anyone!

  • Always Be Who You Are –
    Stay true to yourself – I’ve heard it said the surest route to unhappiness is trying to please everyone. (Bill Cosby – I believe) It just cannot be done.
    So Focus Your Efforts.

  • Remember, You Only Fail If You Stop Trying.
    Everything along the way is just your journey to success.

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”

The rest of your life (potentially) is a very long time to walk in shoes that don’t fit properly. So, at the very least, pursue something that you enjoy. You can always learn more about it and partner with other experts.
