          It is quite obvious that everyone would like to achieve all their goals and be excellent in everything they do. And it is also true that no one who wants to be successful likes hanging around pessimistic people. They need to have a positive outlook and expect fruitful outcomes in the toughest of situations.

Moreover, being a lazy-bone will not get a person as far. Making that extra call and being an early-riser is what will make the difference.

        According to Dr. Siegel’s book Suite Success, she states that a successful person does not take failure personally but keeps on trying until he succeeds. This is the ability to keep popping back up even stronger, after being knocked down by challenges. He needs to stay in the game longer than expected if he wants to stand out.

Dr. Siegel insisted that such people are open-minded and curious to experiment on ideas that are beyond other people’s imagination. This habit prevents stagnation and self-satisfaction which easily kill any sign of success.


      Emotional maturity is an important ability many successful people have. Recognizing when emotions are getting out of hand helps them respond as required instead of reacting. Staying calm under stressful conditions makes them able to formulate proper strategies for managing crisis.

In addition, people who achieve success own their mistakes. They admit that they failed, do what is necessary to correct it and then learn from that. Shifting blame and finding excuses are vices that slowly build up into toxic ego.

     Being triumphant in every task at hand, is a trait everyone desires. Identifying these characteristics and noting them is easy. However, applying them in life is the challenge.
