We all start out in life as being quite ordinary and many remain that way. The few who have become extraordinary often have the following qualities.
1. Good self-esteem: Your self-esteem determines your life.
Self-esteem is a condition you experience when you are moving step-by-step toward the accomplishment of something that is important to you. For that reason, it’s really important to have clear goals for each part of your life that you continually work toward achieving those goals. Each progressive step causes your self-esteem to increase and makes you feel more positive and effective in everything else you do. The more you like yourself, the more confident you are. The more you like yourself, the more efficient and effective you are in each area of your life. Self-esteem is the key to peak performance.
Ask yourself everyday: What can I do today to feel good about myself?
2. Strong Communicators: We constantly communicate – even if we think we don’t we still do. Think about your self-talk, the constant bubbly conversation in our head. Is it kind and positive towards yourself?
To develop strong communication with others you need genuine curiosity and asking open minded questions is the key building strong relationships and becoming a good communicator. Never dominate a conversation. Most people, while cosmetically listening to others, are rushing in to make their own points while the other person is still talking.
3. Determine your personal values: Know what is really important to you in your life. We all have personal values, no matter whether we are conscious about them or not. And you may not believe it, but most of your actions are guided by your values, so even though your values are hidden inside you, they are still visible through your actions.
People who are clear about what they believe in and value, and who refuse to compromise their values like and respect themselves far more than people who are unclear about what is really important to them.
This is crucial as you don’t want to live a life based on other people’s values.
So, in conclusion, success and growth come in many shapes and forms. The above guides you to take action and develop these qualities within yourself to build a better you.
