1 Key Trait You Need to Have For Success

There is something top performers, super achievers have that sets them apart from the crowd. And if you want to live your greatest life this year, and have your dreams come true; whatever those dreams are, then you need to develop that quality – which is the indestructible personality.

A person with the indestructible personality cannot be stopped, he will cont be crushed, and he is never denied. He has an unshakeable believe in his destiny, such that when bad things happen, when adversity strike, like it strikes in every life, he is not moved, but rather moves with unrelenting courage.

Do you have a dream? Then you need to have this trait in you. I was told of John Grisham, famous American Novelist, who at the time was a Baptist Sunday school teacher in Virginia, Mississippi. That when he wrote his first novel “A Time to Kill”, he sent it out to a publisher, and waited for the good news, only to be told by the publisher that it was unpublishable. His manuscript was rejected by 25 different publishers. It was the 26th publisher that agreed to publish it and today, he is a worldwide phenomenon.

Dr. Seuss, famous Children book Author’s fist work was rejected by 26 publishers, and it took the 27th one to publish his work. J.K. Rowling, Multi billionaire author, had her famous book “Harry Potter” rejected by 7 publishers, only for the 8th one, a relatively unknown publishing firm to give her a chance and she was told the book will not sell. This list goes on and on. Britney Spears was told she wasn’t going to make it her as a musician, she never allowed those rejection to stop her dream.

Folk if you want to achieve success this year, you have to become unstoppable. Don’t stop because you were turned down. Try some place else. Like those top achievers, if you want to make a difference  in life, you need to be indestructible. You need to let rejection roll off you. Continue reading 1 Key Trait You Need to Have For Success

There are some of us who are attempting to give up on our dreams and goals due to the many difficulties and challenges on our paths. It is looking as if help won’t come, and our strength will fail. To those of us, I leave these words; “Go on, Sir (Madam), go on. The difficulties you meet with will rejoice themselves as you advance. Proceed; and light will dawn and shine with increasing clearness on your path.”

A wise king commenting on the importance of persistence and consistency of purpose, said this; “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before great men; he shall not stand before mean men.” You see, it isn’t so much of academic brilliance, ingenuity, huge financial resources as persistency and consistency of efforts and purpose that makes a person great.

The people who succeed in life are those who keep at it long enough even after others quit. Others may be more brilliant than you; they may be richer than you; they may be more talented than you are, but you can make the mark in life if you are persistent and determined enough. Maybe you are writing and no one is reading, ‘liking’ or ‘commenting’ on your work. You are singing and nobody’s listening. You are speaking and nobody’s hearing. Friends keep at it. Time will come when you will be heard and seen! Continue reading Get the Staying Power
