Characteristics of Success

What makes a person successful? Why is it that some people seem to live lives filled with triumph and achievement, while others fail at most of the things they do or at least don’t succeed to any great degree? Have you ever asked yourself those questions? I have. And the answers are very revealing.

In a latest U.S. census report that I have seen, 9.2% of all U.S. workers earn less than $11,000 a year, and only 5% make more than $145,000. WOW! When I read the report, it started me thinking about the ingredients of success — what characteristics the people who are successful have in common.

How To Make Change a positive Part of Your Life | | Hughie BagnellI don’t believe that anyone is destined by fate for success! I also don’t believe that success is reserved for those with a fortunate heritage or who grow up in an enriching environment. In short, it’s not a private club for those who just happened to be born wealthy, intelligent or attractive.

Human history speaks to the fact success is available to anyone who can overcome his or her shortcomings. Given that people from all cultures and all walks of life have lived successful lives, it raises the question, “What do they have in common?”

Attitudes and Actions That Lead to Success

After thinking about it and trying to identify the differences between people who succeed and those who fail, I came to the conclusion that most of it has to do with attitudes and actions! Successful people think and do things differently than people who fail!
