What successful people have in common?

Submitted by on April 21, 2020 – 1:22 am No Comment

The below list was lifted from Quora and is authored by Adam Fayed Founder of Global Online Financial Advisory Firm.  I really like this list a lot.  I think just successful is enough though – not just ultra successful.  I am even sure what ultra successful means.  I suppose there is something to be said about degrees.

  • Focus
  • Determination
  • Persistence
  • They are less influenced by the majority
  • They are readers
  • They invest in themselves
  • They invest in financial projects
  • They are open-minded
  • They also take care of their health and other things which aren’t directly linked to their wealth
  • They take personal responsibility
  • They are less focused on losses, and more on gains, or a realistic view of gains/losses. Most people are more focused on avoiding loss.
  • Focus on the long-term
  • They learn from their mistakes
  • And the mistakes of others
