Top 10 Traits of Highly Successful People

Top 10 Traits of Highly Successful People

We have all read about people who are successful briefly. They win a gold medal, make a fortune, or star in one great movie…and then disappear. Or, there are those like Marilyn Monroe and Howard Hughes who achieve extraordinary success, at the cost of their own lives. These examples do not inspire me!

My focus and fascination is with people who seem to do well in many areas of life, and do it over and over through a lifetime. In entertainment, I think of Paul Newman and Bill Cosby. In business, I think of Ben and Jerry (the ice cream moguls), and a local hardware store owner who is famous for the money he’s give to children’s charities. As a Naval Officer, husband, businessman, politician and now as a mediator and philanthropist on the world stage, Jimmy Carter has had a remarkable life. We all know examples of people who go from one success to another.

These are the people who inspire me! I’ve studied them, and I’ve noticed they have the following traits in common:

1. They work hard! Yes, they play hard, too! They get up early, they rarely complain, they expect performance from others, but they expect extraordinary performance from themselves. Repeated, high-level success starts with a recognition that hard work pays off.

2. They are incredibly curious and eager to learn. They study, ask questions and read – constantly! An interesting point, however: While most of them did well in school, the difference is that they apply or take advantage of what they learn. Repeated success is not about memorizing facts, it’s about being able to take information and create, build, or apply it in new and important ways. Successful people want to learn everything about everything!

3. They network. They know lots of people, and they know lots of different kinds of people. They listen to friends, neighbors, co-workers and bartenders. They don’t have to be “the life of the party”, in fact many are quiet, even shy, but they value people and they value relationships. Successful people have a rolodex full of people who value their friendship and return their calls.

4. They work on themselves and never quit! While the “over-night wonders” become arrogant and quickly disappear, really successful people work on their personality, their leadership skills, management skills, and every other detail of life. When a relationship or business deal goes sour, they assume they can learn from it and they expect to do better next time. Successful people don’t tolerate flaws; they fix them!

5. They are extraordinarily creative. They go around asking, “Why not?” They see new combinations, new possibilities, new opportunities and challenges where others see problems or limitations. They wake up in the middle of the night yelling, “I’ve got it!” They ask for advice, try things out, consult experts and amateurs, always looking for a better, faster, cheaper solution. Successful people create stuff!

6. They are self-reliant and take responsibility. Incredibly successful people don’t worry about blame, and they don’t waste time complaining. They make decisions and move on. Sometimes they are criticized for taking this to extremes – Jimmy Carter carried his own briefcase and a President “shouldn’t” do that! Extremely successful people take the initiative and accept the responsibilities of success.

7. They are usually relaxed and keep their perspective. Even in times of stress or turmoil, highly successful people keep their balance, they know the value of timing, humor, and patience. They rarely panic or make decisions on impulse. Unusually successful people breath easily, ask the right questions, and make sound decisions, even in a crisis.

8. Extremely successful people live in the present moment. They know that “Now” is the only time they can control. They have a “gift” for looking people in the eye, listening to what is being said, enjoying a meal or fine wine, music or playing with a child. They never seem rushed, and they get a lot done! They take full advantage of each day. Successful people don’t waste time, they use it!

9. They “look over the horizon” to see the future. They observe trends, notice changes, see shifts, and hear the nuances that others miss. A basketball player wearing Nikes is trivial, the neighbor kid wearing them is interesting, your own teenager demanding them is an investment opportunity! Extremely successful people live in the present, with one eye on the future!

10. Repeatedly successful people respond instantly! When an investment isn’t working out, they sell. When they see an opportunity, they make the call. If an important relationship is cooling down, they take time to renew it. When technology or a new competitor or a change in the economic situation requires an adjustment, they are the first and quickest to respond.

These traits work together in combination, giving repeatedly successful people a huge advantage. Because they are insatiable learners, they can respond wisely to change. Because their personal relationships are strong, they have good advisors, and a reserve of goodwill when things go bad. And finally, none of these traits are genetic! They can be learned! They are free and they are skills you can use. Start now!

How Photoshop training empowers people

How Photoshop training empowers people

Everyone who works with images needs Photoshop training to get the most out of their photos and videos. If you’re a photographer, designer, or you work with any type of images at all, it’s time you found out how Photoshop training empowers both novices and professionals to achieve their full potential.

I’m a dedicated lifelong learner, but one of the gaps in my learning over the past ten years is in Photoshop. I’ve made a commitment to sign up for Photoshop training to get the most out of my web site and online graphics work. I’m not a design professional, but I have an urgent need to know how to do more with my photos and videos on the Internet.

I think that describes a lot of people today, no matter what field they work in. Sure, I could outsource the jobs-or choose not to do them at all. But here’s the real reason why I’m sold on Photoshop: Photoshop training stretches my creativity. It adds value to every area of my professional and personal life by lighting the creative flame that burns inside me. Photoshop training is one of the most professionally and personally rewarding investments you can make in yourself.

Read testimonials of people who have benefited from a Photoshop training course. When you do this, you’ll understand what I’m talking about. You’ll find testimonials from retired people who wanted a stimulating and challenging hobby to help them stay busy. I read a testimonial on one site from a retired man so excited about using his new Photoshop skills to restore photographs that he’s planning to make a business out of it. Another man wrote that Photoshop training is increasing his skills so fast that he is already teaching new tricks to colleagues who are experienced Photoshop users.

Satisfied user after satisfied user: They all have the experience, and all of them are glad they signed up for Photoshop training. One of the testimonials captured the experience of all frustrated Photoshop novices who wake up one day with the solution right in front of their eyes-a Photoshop training course on their computer screen. This satisfied Photoshop learner remarked about the training course: “Why can’t I think of the solutions by myself?” That’s the way it is with all great teaching-the answers seem so simple when someone is there to give them to us.

Many Photoshop owners use the software for over a year without learning how to use most of the tools. As soon as they sign up for a Photoshop training course, they start seeing the difference in what they’re able to do. And they suddenly appreciate the full power of the investment they made in the Photoshop software, too-when you start learning how to get the most out of Photoshop, it can be worth its weight in gold. But you’ll never know until you sign up for Photoshop training.

Many Photoshop users spend a long time trying to do things the hard way. Make a commitment today to invest time and money in a Photoshop training course and discover the simple solutions you haven’t been able to think of by yourself.

Warren Buffet – Gold and Paper Money

7 May 2012 CNBC [Its a huge question people have asked us, this big run up in Gold over 4 years. Civilized people dont buy Gold! Bill Gates - Historically I did have Silver investments. But Gold is so psychological. Countries need liquidity, here is an asset which is not doing anything for the citizen, people dont suddenly buy 4 times more jewelery. Its just purely other people in the future think its worth more than its worth today. People panic. The supply equation will change. The bulls will have to adjust to innovation. Warren Buffet - "Gold has gone and Berkshire hasnt gone up by as much. If you buy an ounce of gold you can carress it and fondle it, a hundred years from now you will still have an ounce of Gold. If you buy farmland it will produce for 100 years and you will still have the farmland. You can buy the Dow Jones, at the end you have dividends for 100 years. So a productive asset is going to kill a non-productive asset. But any asset can outperform any other asset [Beautiful - he knows the inherent contradiction that is both for and against Gold] Incidentally THEY ARE RIGHT TO BE AFRAID OF PAPER MONEY. If they run from it that is a mistake….but it is a correct premise" [Amazing]
