Dissecting the root of being successful Part 1

This piece was inspired after I had a conversation with a close friend of mine. The things they said hit close to home and it really upset me and made me wonder.

Do you think family support influences ones success or ability to succeed? Keep that question in mind As you read this.

I am trying to understand the root of success so this is what I know about most successful people:

1. Hard workers/Smart workers
2. Goal Orientated
3. Persistent
4. Optimistic
5. Self belief (Confidence)

Let me expend on these 5 qualities.

1. Hard / Smart Workers.
There is a mouthful on this but we all know it. We’ve been drilled about working hard/smart in school so its no stranger to our territory.

2. Goal Orientated.
They know what they want. How to get it and are time bound. They ensure they see it through to the end even if the time elapses they will complete it.

3. Persistent.
We all know this one. No obstacle is too great for this being to overcome and achieve their goal. “No Retreat, No Surrender”.

4. Optimistic.
They approach a challenge with the a positive attitude. Nothing beats positive energy.

5. Self Belief.
This is the most important of them all. You cant do something if you don’t believe in your own abilities, I once read some where that “What you put into the universe is what you get back” so that means if you don’t believe in yourself why would some else do what you fail to do?
Self Belief also works hand in hand with Confidence, you cant have one without the other.

That’s my observation of the successful people that surround me. Again here’s the question: Do you think family support influences ones success or ability to succeed? Could there be other factors that influence ones success or ability to succeed? And if so, what are those?
