6 ‘Secrets’ of Successful People

We all are born for some reason with unique qualities and we all are here to achieve something and to find success! And to be successful, There is no ‘secret’ but discipline, perseverance, and six simple skills will lead you to chase your dreams!


Why everybody on this earth is not successful?

I know there is really no mystery behind it but there is something they do differently than other people. Here are few habits that very successful people have. Adopt these habits and to accelerate your own success.

1. Focus on your Goals

Don’t allow anything in your path to keep you away from your goals, whatever they are. Be grateful to get the challenges as the new opportunities to learn. To stay ahead, look at the possibilities around you and the situations from all angles and adopt the possible perspective. Be Thankful for the uneven long bumpy ride which made you tougher then ever to achieve your goals.

2. Learn to say ‘No’

It’s far better to say no to skip those activities that aren’t necessary for you, that you don’t enjoy rather than saying yes and produce poor quality work or lose your focus for what matters the most. Make a list of the things which are in your first priority and that you must do yourself, and then delegate the least priority things that can be done by someone else. Free yourself from daily busywork and you’ll free time for new opportunities

3. Use daily plan of attack

They say, “Whatever isn’t written down won’t get done.” We think that we can remember our most important tasks but when the workday gets busy, it’s easy to forget some of the things we really need to get done before deadline. Every morning, start your day with written out a detailed plan of attack for the day. This task list will not only keep you more organized, but seeing the list in front of you may help you work harder and ignore the distractions.

4. Accept Criticism

Learn to listen to and accept the criticism that you get from people. It should be heard, assessed, and then let go but constructive criticism should be evaluated and acted upon. Get feedback from people whose opinions you value. Remember to be grateful while receiving feedback; when you are, your coworkers and friends will be more likely to give you their support and ideas in the future.

5. Trust Your intuition

Intuition is very real thing if you believe in it and something that is never wise to ignore, because it comes from deep within your subconscious mind and is cultivated from your previous experiences. If your mind says “yes” but your gut is telling you ‘no’, don’t ignore it as it’s usually for a good reason. When faced with difficult decisions, look out all the possible information you can find, become as  knowledgeable, at-last heed your intuition.

6. Take Risks

It’s not possible to become successful while always be on safe side. Well calculated risks can bring unimaginable opportunities to your personal and professional life. When taking a risk doesn’t bring out the way you had hoped, simply observe it and keep moving forward. Big dreams-;and great success-;aren’t realized by playing it safe!

Be Successful!

    I think if one learns how to accept his own criticism and always be ready to take risk, no one can stop him.

    Thanks Alok, I agree with all you said Alok but still, my point is, you don’t have to say NO bluntly to anyone. But there are some other factors associated with it too As I previously explained in a post

    Will start to say No: “Many times I don’t want to spend my 3 hours in theater watching a movie. As I can watch the same movie at home on TV/laptop while doing my work along with it. It seems like, I wasted my time and money and didn’t finish the other work I was suppose to. So I’ll start to say no and give myself some free time in my schedule. Free time promotes personal happiness!”

    Great post Payal. One of the secrets of successful people is that they will always remain humble to everyone. As you said that Learn to say No, as the secrets of a successful person, but in fact mostly successful person feels it too difficult to learn to say no to anything or any person.
