8 Human Traits You Need to Be Successful (Not Your IQ)

by Darpan Sachdeva

via- SUCCESS Staff

Is it possible that intelligence is overrated? Although a natural touch for acquiring and making sense of knowledge is undoubtedly a valuable trait in our professional and personal lives, research has shown that there are far more important factors at play when it comes to succeeding at our goals and duties. In fact, the Carnegie Institute of Technology claims that 85 percent of financial success can be attributed to people skills rather than raw brain power. And it makes sense that people prefer to do business with those they trust.

Niche Website Success

Elsewhere, Dr. Arthur E. Poropat identified five personality traits which—taking intelligence levels into account—can be shown to improve test results. Studying is of course recommended, but conscientiousness, openness, agreeableness, extraversion and emotional stability can also pay off with higher grades.

In the workplace, team-thinking and personal development should be key priorities, not afterthoughts to acquiring technical knowledge. Emotional awareness toward yourself, your colleagues and your clients sits at the core of an effective professional development strategy. In order to do that you need to do two things:

Know yourself. Manage your emotions, identify potential areas of improvement through training or research, take failure or mistakes as lessons and aim to grow.

Know others. Listen for their ideas and needs, work with these in mind even if you disagree with them, let your teammates and your customers see your passion.

Curiosity is a vastly underrated attribute that brings understanding, widens horizons and encourages fellowship. Taking time to study and develop the personality traits highlighted in the infographic below is a good sign in itself: These so-called “soft skills” are in fact fundamental to thriving in the business world. An open mind is endlessly more valuable than one rigidly stuffed with facts and unable to adapt to circumstances.

11 Things must give up to achieve success in life

by  Darpan Sachdeva





”Somebody once told me the definition of hell:

“On your last day on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.” — Anonymous

Sometimes, to become successful and get closer to the person we can become, we don’t need to add more things — we need to give up on some of them.

Getting successful  and rich in life is not easy.It takes lots of handwork and persistence.It takes discipline, focus, and a set of core values that guide you around the emotions and stress of daily combat.

You can easily get sidetracked with all the strategies and resources available to you with the modern technology .These tools and strategies are constantly changing on daily basis..You find yourself chasing tactics one after another, hoping that you will eventually get rich with one of them.

You try one ,it does not work for you and then change to another strategy which again does not work for you and henceforth.As you repeat that cycle, the idea of becoming a millionaire becomes blurry. What used to be very clear now seems frantically out of reach.

One things thats for sure that all rich and successful people know  are not only the things and habits that are to be done but also teh things that are to be given up and not be done what so ever. Here are eleven things you have to give up to achieve success.

1.Give up on need to be perfect:

Perfectionism is based on the false belief that if we do things perfectly.We can avoid failure.You just need to be honest about those mistakes and learn from the results that you achieve. It does you no good to pretend like you’re more successful that you really are. It stops you from doing the things that would help you achieve your goals.

Its about taking those baby steps on everyday basis that take you towards the bigger goal in your life.Its always about to try and do your best  and move ahead on regular basis.

Always favor progress over perfection.

 

2.Give up on being a know-it-all:

Don’t be that person that cuts everyone off mid-sentence. Listen to people. Don’t interrupt your employees or your customers. Don’t roll your eyes and stomp your feet while you wait for the person who is talking to stop. That’s selfish and shortsighted. And besides coming off as completely arrogant, you are missing out on important lessons by acting that way.

Yes, for surely ,a lot of things we hear are irrelevant ,unhelpful and the stuff that is criticism and insane.But if you can listen long enough ,you might get that little important information that happens to be the next essence that takes you ahead on your road to success

Listen for those moments. Ignore everything else.

3.Give up on Saying YES to things that do not support your Goals:

Successful people know it fully well that to get some thing in life more than average is possible only by sacrificing more than average.To be able to say NO to things that give results of instant gratification for the goals that would give long term fruition.

 

4.Give up Whinning:

“It’s not about the cards you’re dealt, but how you play the hand.”
― Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

Successful people know that they are responsible for their life, no matter their starting point, weaknesses, and past failures.

Stop being the person who has to help “keep everyone else’s feet on the ground.” That’s just an excuse for you to whine and mope and be unnecessarily negative. No one likes a whiner. That’s just the truth.




5.Give up expecting life to be always fair

Stop pretending like you’re the only one who has bad, unexpected circumstances happen to them. Everyone lives in the same sometimes-erratic universe. You didn’t get it any worse than anyone else. Enough already with the theatrics. Rich people don’t get that way by sulking.

Always remember no matter how strong you are,life will beat you to your knees and make you fall.Success is not about falling and getting the hits ,its about getting back after the falling and hits.

 

6.Give up on  the fixed mindset:

“The future belongs to those who learn more skills and combine them in creative ways.” ― Robert Greene, Mastery

Successful people fully understand the value of the “Learn all” person over the “know all” person.They invest an immense amount of time on a daily basis to develop a growth mindset, acquire new knowledge, learn new skills and change their perception so that it can benefit their lives.

Remember, who you are today, it’s not who you have to be tomorrow.

7.Give upon not  taking responsibility:

In any area of your life, what you do has consequences. Sometimes those are good. Other times you are left with regrets. Actions have results. That’s a universal truth. It never changes. You will always get the results deserved by the activity that you’re doing.

You need to believe that what you do can make a difference. Hard work matters. A kind word matters. Honesty matters. Candor, personal responsibility, and fairness — they all matter. Because the lifestyle you lead is what ultimately determines how rich and successful you become. Make sure you’re doing the right things.




8.Give up your fear of seeking help:

You can’t succeed alone. If you want to succeed, you must ask for help. Let me be clear, asking for help does not mean asking others to do your push-ups for you.

Be confident about your need for asking for help.

Reach out to entrepreneurs, practitioners, and people with skills you need to succeed.

9.Give up on your need to make every one happy:

Trying to make everyone happy is a sign of weakness. You could have the best product in the world and some customers will still be upset. You could have the greatest customer service and some clients will be unhappy still. And, that’s OK.

 

10.Give up on your fear of the unknown:

Successful people are always ready to face the new upcoming and surprises while they try hard towards their success.They  are never afraid of the unknown.

11.  Give up your Vulnerabilities:

We are all vulnerable. Even if you deny it, you are vulnerable. The difference between someone who succeeds and someone who fails is the way they handle their vulnerabilities.

“When you know better, You do better” – The life impacting lesson Oprah learnt from Maya Angelou

by  Darpan Sachdeva

oprah

“When I think about my twenties and what a foolish girl I was and how I would give over my power to men who really didn’t mean me well… But now I hold no grudges against them either because I realize I’m the one who gave over the power because I didn’t know any better. And now that I know better I know I don’t have to do that again. It’s one of the most powerful lessons any of us can ever know.” ~ Oprah

All of us criticize our selves from time to time so often on the things or mistakes we have committed in our past.We try to be harsh on ourselves for not meeting that standard line of conduct or correct approach we have set up for ourselves.We blame and criticize ourselves for things we might have done in the past, failing to realize that the past is in the past. We can’t change what happened in the past but we can surely learn from it.

We certainly can do better today as compared to the past since we know better than we did in the past.This is exactly the same lesson what Oprah got from Maya Angelou as her mentor and she has explained it in the video  below so beautifully.This is so powerful. Please enjoy!!!

Whenever you feel the need to be harsh and critical on yourself, just say to yourself: “I did what I knew.. when I knew better, I did better” ~ Maya Angelou

We are all held in the same captivity, and those who have bound others are themselves in bonds – unless you think perhaps that the left-hand chain is lighter. One man is bound by high office, another by wealth; good birth weighs down some, and a humble origin others; some bow under the rule of other men and some under their own; some are restricted to one place by exile, others by priesthoods: all life is a servitude.

So you have to get used to your circumstances, complain about them as little as possible, and grasp whatever advantage they have to offer: no condition is so bitter that a stable mind cannot find some consolation in it.”
~ Seneca, On the Shortness of Life

Rules to Success by Ratan Tata | Indian Business Leader | Entrepreneur

by Darpan Sachdeva

With my extreme love and appreciation for the Tata  family and the group as a whole , i am confident that  Mr Ratan Tata is always going to be the key hold name and inspiration for all the entrepreneurs globally now and for the times to come.

Mr Ratan Tata is an Indian Business Leader, investor, philanthropist and Chairman of TATA Group. The Video down below  is a tribute to the great man.We know him by his vision, ideas, Entrepreneurship skills, Quotes, Business strategies, Philosophy, ethics. His Motivational Speech inspires us every time. He has been  honored with Padam Bhushan and Padam Vibhushan ,Indian national  awards for his service.




 

Down below are few takeaways for any entrepreneur  from an interview with him at the launch of seed program— Kstart, on Feb 5th, 2016.

If you were a 26-year old entrepreneur of today

Ideas come when you see a problem. Find problems to solve and then put time, energy and efforts to create ventures out of these thoughts or ideas.

In the very limited time that I have been associated with startups, I have heard ideas which I thought would never work. However, those ideas have gone ahead and done fairly well. I realized I am on the learning curve of understanding what young intelligent people around me can do.

Principles on which companies should be formed.

It is exciting if your idea can change the way people live, think or sustain themselves. For me, partly due to my involvement in philanthropy, I am particularly excited when an idea can, in addition, make a positive difference.

What qualities should one look for in an investor?

One looks for investors who have a similar sort of excitement and passion for what one is trying to do. Collaborate with an investor who is not only willing to risk his money but also participates in the journey of the entrepreneur, and use his contacts, mentorship etc. to make the entrepreneur’s vision work in the real world.

Growth v/s profitability, how does one find the equilibrium?

There is no single formula or proven science behind this. In the last few years, I have seen companies grow at rates that I never thought would be possible. The next question then is, can these growth rates be sustained. I think it should be about how you want your vision to be implemented and then closely monitor the progress at each stage.

Importance of creating a personal brand for a startup CEO

I think it is a personal choice to build your brand inseparable from a company, some people do it while others don’t.

Many founders believe that communicating too much gives away their competitive advantage. However, an active system of communication with all stakeholders is a great plus. Successful CEOs do it religiously. It is important to know that “how the world sees you is a result of how well you communicate”.

Celebrating success and defining moments

There have been several successful moments in my journey. But the one moment under the sun that clearly stands out for me was the launch of the Tata Nano. The idea came when I saw a family going on a scooter on a rainy day. They met with an accident and were lying on the road. That got me thinking about how to make a two wheeler safe — which in turn led to the concept of making an affordable four wheeler. Tata Nano is a result of that thought.

We put together a team to design and manufacture the car at a price point that was extremely affordable. We launched it at the auto expo in Delhi. It was a spectacular event.

One thing you wish you had known at 26

As a young employee at Jamshedpur, I went to my bosses with a lot of ideas, but often I wouldn’t be heard and would be told to continue doing what I was doing. In such situations, I yearned for an environment where one would be heard when one had an idea. Maybe, I did not know how to frame my question or idea. I think how you communicate is something you wish you could have done better when you were young.

His inspirations

  • JRD Tata: who left his mark on the industry in India; was a tremendous mentor to me
  • Henry Schacht: Former chairman and CEO of Cummins Diesel inspired me a lot. I learnt a lot from him.
  • Amar Bose, who formed the Bose Corporation. He and I became very close. We spent a lot of time exchanging ideas.
