Principles of Success – Common Traits of Successful People

Have you ever had an area of your life you wanted to change (be it professional or personal), and even though you were committed to making that change, you still didn’t do it?

Why does this happen? What prevents you from making that change? Is it because you don’t know how to?

We can all list a variety of reasons why we don’t follow through on what we say we want to do, but the fundamental reason is down to our mindset. Research shows that 80% of success in anything is psychology, and only 20% is mechanics.  The psychological part also needs to be aligned with our goals.

Success is not something that only a chosen few can achieve – it’s available to all of us, in every area of our lives. You just need to know how to do things in such a way as to make sure you succeed every time.  Many experts agree that success comes as a result of forming and repeating certain habits, with consistency being the key ingredient.

Dr Napoleon Hill, author of the bestseller Think and Grow Rich , pioneered the idea that successful individuals share certain qualities. He also asserts that examining and emulating these qualities can guide you to extraordinary achievements.

Remember, knowledge is only powerful if you act on what you know.
