10 positive signs that you will actually become super successful
There are no guarantees of you becoming super rich and successful, however, there are commonalities between people who have already made it.
You might even show signs that you already possess these traits and qualities with them.
Here are 10 signs that you will become really successful:
1. You adapt to change easily
One of the most clear signs that you will become successful in the future is that you adapt to change quickly and easily.
this goes for any line of work. If you’re a stock trader you have to adapt to the fluctuating market and if you’re an athlete you best be prepared for different weather conditions, training requirements and your hungry opponents coming for your win.
Having to adapt requires us to think creatively on a solution to solve the problems we face in an efficient manner.
You might of always had this skill, for example you might not of found it hard to make friends when moving to a new school or maybe you seem to be good at anything you try for the first time.
2. You hold yourself to high standards
Now this one can be split into two parts:
- The internal standards you set.
- The confidence and assertiveness you display.
Successful people are often their own biggest critic’s, they expect themselves to achieve the highest level of success and anything below that is just not good enough. Instead of talking about your goals, you take action to achieve them and lead by example when things get tough.
You take yourself seriously and are extremely confident in your own ability, no matter what anyone else thinks about you. Your also not afraid to say it how it is, you can take a joke but, you don’t allow people to walk all over you and are assertive when you need to be.
3. You spend a countless amount of time on your craft
The most famous people you know are where they are, because they committed their whole life to being the best at what they do, some even start in their early childhood!
It’s not always about taking part in that one thing to get better either, for example a footballer doesn’t just play football, they train, learn new skills and tactics and probably watch the sport in their spare time, it’s a lifestyle and to some degree an obsession.
Although it’s not a guaranteed rule, using the 10,000 hour rule will definitely increase your chances of becoming a success.
4. You manage stress well
Now, you might be thinking, stress, what stress? Successful people have everything they need and nothing ever goes wrong in their life? Well, that’s definitely not true!
Yes, they might not be struggling to pay their rent each month, nor are they going hungry but, they certainly are in stressful situations each and every day, just a different type.
They have to manage people, out work their competition and are constantly having to adapt to change. Because of all these stressors, they have to learn how to manage it.
5. You have a vision and set goals to achieve it
Every successful person has a vision and at times they can seem impossible to even fathom, Elon Musk is a prime example of this.
Elon wants to put people on Mars by 2026, yes he wants to colonize another planet in the next few years. It doesn’t start there though, he’s broken down this long term vision, into smaller (although huge accomplishments) short term goals. First it was building a spaceship, then sending it to space and finally another trip to space with astronauts on board.
So if you have a long term vision and break that down into more achievable targets, it’s a great sign that you will reach your dreams.
Did you know that you are significantly more likely to accomplish your goals if you write them down according to this research paper.
“have goals so big you get uncomfortable telling small minded people.”
6. You have a spark and use it to your advantage
No matter whether it be sports, science or business and entrepreneurship, the most successful people have some sort of special talent or skill in their respected fields.
It may be a genetic disposition, some skill that you’ve had from a very early age or an attribute that you have acquired over the years, it’s that one thing that set’s you apart from the rest.
One of the great things about this is that it doesn’t always come down to the luck of the draw like we stated above, you can acquire this special gift through creating the right habits.
Yes, we all have weaknesses and it is important to try and work on them, however, you will see the most success by polishing out your strengths.
A great way to know if this is a sign that you will become successful, is that you always get complemented or become known for one thing, it’s even more of a significance when people who have already achieved the success that you desire start noticing your potential.
7. You take risks and aren’t afraid of failure
Being successful is all about taking risks, calculated risks that is. You can look at it like this, you either take risks with the opportunity of succeeding and a chance of failing, or not taking any risks and living the rest of your life with regret.
Now, that doesn’t mean you going to the casino gambling is a positive sign that you are going to be successful, it’s quite the opposite.
when we’re talking about risks, we mean starting that business that you’ve always dreamed about but was to afraid of what others might think. It’s taking an educated risk on what will take you closer to where you want to be.
What if you do fail?... You fail forward, you turn your losses into lessons and learn from every mistake you make!
8. You have a deep internal motivation
The most successful people in the world are rich, famous and powerful, yet they never really stop doing what made them so great.
What is it that makes successful people keep working on their dreams even when they have everything?
Yes, money and fame are things that can motivate you to achieving more but, when it comes to the most successful people they have that in abundance. there seems to be some intrinsic motivation that pushes them even further than the rest.
Whether it’s lead by passion, needs or a burning desire to prove other people wrong and yourself right. You need something that gives you a spark to carry on.
9. You’re great at networking
Have you ever heard the saying that “you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with“? Well it’s something that we refer to a lot and although it may not be an exact science, there definitely is some truth to the meaning behind it.
If you surround yourself with success, you will become successful!
When you see successful people, they’re often socializing with other successful people, one examples of this is the great relationship between Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, they’re practically best friends.
One of the main questions here is whether successful people end up connecting with each other, or whether working with others makes you become successful.
We believe it’s the later.
Think about it, if all of your friends become super healthy by eating right and hitting the gym, you will start to gain these habits yourself, it’s like having an accountability partner with a shared interest.
Yes you might not know any successful people yet but, it’s about networking with others and growing together as a collective by improving every day.
10. You see things differently
Often, successful people aren’t the cool Kids at school or the one who were expected to do “big things”, in fact many of them are quiet introverted and happy in their own thoughts but, one thing that is common is that they see things differently.
They’re always looking at problems in the world, not to moan about them, instead they look at ways to fix them or make them better.
Businesses like Apple and Nike are known for breaking the status quo, instead of trying to sell you their products by telling you about a certain feature that is better than another companies, they sell you the idea of who you become when buying their products.
