Earlier today, my friend Ilya Pozin shared an article on Forbes titled: "12 Things All Successful People Do" - and after spending over a decade studying successful entrepreneurs across the planet - I really think Ilya nailed it!
Here are the traits behind every successful person:
- Be Willing to Fail... Boldly!
- Set S.M.A.R.T. Goals
- It's Not About Luck - Hit the Ground Running
- Track Your Progress
- You'll Never Have All the Answers So Don't Wait to Act
- Focus on the Bigger Picture
- Believe in Yourself
- Go the Extra Mile Everyday - Commit to Your Goal
- Keep Your Eyes Open to Opportunity (it's everywhere!)
- Never Give Up
- Communicate with Confidence
- Success Doesn't Have to Come with an Ego
