The 7 Traits That Lead to Success in Life

Published 09/27/2022

B​elieve it or not; people aren't born successful. But successful people have a few things in common.

While adopting the traits of those that have reached the mountaintop doesn't guarantee that you'll become the next Jeff Bezos, or LeBron James, or Kevin Hart, without them, you likely will not.

I​ntelligence, talent, and ability are only a few ingredients in the recipe for success.

Your personality type is the most influential factor in determining the likelihood of becoming a high achiever.



Self-starters don't require direction or prodding to get things done. They are capable of keeping a laser-sharp concentration on the subject at hand because they are knowledgeable about their roles and objectives.

Nothing keeps them from their work or prevents them from achieving their objectives.

These determined individuals find strength in others. They are driven to advance by self-motivation despite obstacles and necessary sacrifices. They are passionate about acting on their own initiative, giving everything they have to what they do, and relentlessly working to become better people.

S​elf-starters take charge of their destiny by working tirelessly towards their dreams.



Those prepared for difficulties and overcoming obstacles stand head and shoulders above the competition. They get a competitive advantage over those unwilling or unprepared for challenges.

They might not always succeed but will find what works for them relative to the obstacle in their path. High achievers weigh the pros and cons rationally in search of the best possible outcome.

W​hile it's impossible to plan for everything that comes your way, understanding that life is unpredictable allows for greater adaptability.



Optimists hardly ever consider the possibility of "giving up on their ambitions." Convinced that they have what it takes, optimists have the spirit to persevere through almost anything.

Positive thinkers are self-assured, and as a result, they don't hesitate to take measured chances. They venture out, look for fresh challenges, and create opportunities. 

B​eing an optimist insulates you against negativity and helps manage stressful situations.


R​isk taking 

P​eople who take risks live outside the comfort zone of security and a cozy environment.

T​aking a leap of faith requires courage and rewards us with infinite possibilities while remaining in a cocoon of safety limits accomplishment.

Risk aversion is fear of the unknown. You'll experience both freedom and empowerment if you figure out how to get through it and take a leap of faith. 



We often reflect after making a mistake to determine what went wrong and learn what we may have done differently. By being observant and mindful of others, we might avoid repeating their mistakes.

The same can be said of observing others' achievements and the processes necessary to accomplish them.

You'll get a deeper understanding of how mistakes and successes happen. Given the correct information, you can copy or avoid the necessary habits and practices. 



Highly successful people know that playing the long game is necessary to achieve your goals. As a result, they take things one step at a time while working patiently and diligently.

These people strive to become better versions of themselves by utilizing their advantages, conquering their weaknesses, and putting forth constant effort. Their persistent efforts have produced incredible results, thereby hastening their success.

Keep your head down with your eyes locked firmly on the target. Consistency is vital if you want to achieve your goals and succeed.



T​he average person sets a goal, and when they achieve it, they stop growing. Successful people continuously reinvent themselves.

If you become content with your accomplishments or how you go about your daily tasks, you will quickly reach a ceiling and find yourself in a rut.

Lack of development results in an average life. You must continually raise the bar higher for improvement.

I​nvest in your personal development throughout all stages of your journey. Change your thoughts, ideas, and viewpoint to explore untapped aspects of your life. You reinvent yourself when you learn new things and let go of your limiting beliefs. 

W​ire your mind for success and find yourself in the company of successful people.
