Do You Have The Seeds Of Greatness?

Part 1 of 10 from The Heart of Winning!

Have you ever watched someone who is really good at what they do, and think about how they got there? It wasn’t an accident, it was tenacity, perseverance, a will to win and all that time and effort and energy spent. It took action. It was a strong belief in themselves and their potential and the people who were supporting them.

It was caring about themselves, their goals, their vision, and what they were trying to achieve. It was creativity, finding new and unique ways to make things happen. It was overcoming conflicts, because nothing ever happens without a little conflict, it’s always there to at least some degree.

Do You Believe In Yourself?

Part 11 of 12 from Qualities of Highly Successful People

(continued from last week…)

#9 – Self-Confidence

The highly successful believe in themselves. They have composure and confidence in their ability to achieve.

You have to trust you. It’s as simple as that. When you have that unshakable trust in yourself, you are one step closer to success than everybody around you. You have to believe in you, you have to believe in the possibilities, you have to see what you desire, you then have to take actions towards that desired outcome. Self-confidence and composure gives you momentum to move forward and keep moving.

Eddie Carlson, the executive that took the Western Hotel company into the Western Corporation and took a failing United Airlines to being one of the biggest and best airlines in the world said, “I believe in myself. I know what I need to do. I help my people see their value and believe in themselves and together we achieve greatly.”

Are You Enjoying The Scenery?

Part 10 of 12 from Qualities of Highly Successful People

(continued from last week…)

#8 – Optimism

Walter Winchell once said, “An optimist is someone who gets treed by a lion but enjoys the scenery.” You know there’s much to achieve and much good in this world. You know what’s worth going for.

Optimism is about a strategy for making a better future. You take action today to build a better tomorrow. Unless you believe the future can be better, you are very unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so. Optimism is one of those traits that makes a giant difference. Without optimism, without belief in possibility, you will have no pro-activeness and without pro-activeness, you are not going to take the needed steps to achieve the desired outcomes you desire.

Part 9 of 12 from Qualities of Highly Successful People

(continued from last week…)

#7 – It’s Up To You

Psychological researcher, Dr. Abraham Maslow, talked about the “hierarchy of needs”.

The first need is biological and physiological needs. You have to have shelter, you need to be able to stay warm and be able to cool off when needed, you need to have water, you need to have air, you need to have food, you need to sleep, these are basic needs. You must have those things to live.

Next is safety needs. You have to feel safe and secure. You have to be able to know you’ll be ok.

Accomplish It With Enthusiasm!

Part 8 of 12 from Qualities of Highly Successful People

(continued from last week…)

#6 – Passion & Enthusiasm

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Nothing great is ever accomplished without enthusiasm.” If you want to succeed, if you want to live a great life, energy and passion is at the core.

You have to have energy, enthusiasm, passion, drive, and desire to get out there and go for it. Thomas Edison said, “Achievement is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration.” You have to get out there and make it happen.

Think about a five or a six year old playing. Think about that energy, that passion, that enthusiasm, the excitement for the moment. Doing things that many of us may just deem very inconsequential but to them it is a game, it’s fun, it’s exciting, its making something happen.

Honesty Is The Best Policy

Part 7 of 12 from Qualities of Highly Successful People

(continued from last week…)

#5 – Integrity

This shouldn’t have to be said, but integrity is one of the very most important attributes that you can cultivate.

Honesty is the best policy. Having integrity creates character and defines who you are. Integrity makes a difference for yourself and for the people you work with. If you cannot believe in someone and you cannot see how you can work together with them, integrity has broken down.

An example – Have you ever had a boss that you work with who was changeable day to day? One day they were great, they were behind you, they were supportive; the next day they were blasting you for things you didn’t even know where they came from; the day after that they were despondent; the day after that they needed your support; the day after that they were happy and they were all friendly again.

You Need To Pay Attention!

Part 6 of 12 from Qualities of Highly Successful People

(continued from last week…)

#4 – Patience

You have to be willing to be patient. You have to understand that in everything, there are failures, there are frustrations, sometimes things go more easily, sometimes they go slower and harder.

To take the speed at which things evolve personally, would be a detriment to you and to your achievements. You have to take the time, you have to slow down and pay attention.

In doing therapy or coaching, quite often people will start to make progress and as they do they say, “I want to do it faster. I want it more. I want it better. I want it right now!” And there is something to be said for having that desire to succeed, that desire to achieve, that desire to overcome and move forward – that’s a great thing.
