5 Stand Out Qualities of Super Successful People

Published

Paul Scolardi Multi Millionaire Stock Trader

On the battlefield to success, you will experience your ups and downs, the game will throw some curve balls your way, and the truth is, most people won’t put in the work to make sure they’re fit and ready for the challenges ahead.

But what if you could learn and put into practice; the qualities of someone who has already achieved huge success?

Would that change everything for you?

Here is a Self Made Millionaire’s view on the 5 stand out qualities of the super successful.

 

1. They Get Up Early

Having the discipline to get up early sets you up for success and productivity each day. Sleeping in late or getting up just in time for your responsibilities creates a sense of panic and doesn’t leave time to prepare and respond to contingencies.

Rising early allows me to get ahead of the game, and of course get more work done. I get up 3-5am every weekday to research stocks for that day and prepare lessons for my students. This way when the stock market opens I can react to new developments as well as have a list of stocks to watch heading into the trading day.

 

2. They Overcome and Learn From Failures and Adversity

Anyone can be happy and positive when things are going how you want them and you are succeeding. It is how one responds to adversity and failure that really defines a strong character. Successful people learn the lessons from failure and let it make them stronger.

They do not wallow in lost confidence forever. Growing up learning stocks I lost all my money a few times and it was absolutely devastating. I always had the talent to find winning stocks but lacked the discipline to trade them. Instead of quitting, I devised a strategy with rules from my failures (as well as successes) that has propelled me to grow, compound, and retain my wealth as a self made millionaire as well helping many others on the path to be self made millionaires.

 

3. They Are Not Influenced By The Fact That Not Everyone Will Like Them Or Believe In Them

Not everyone in the world will like you or believe in you. That is a fact. Many people naturally want everyone to like them and believe in them. Once you accept this is not going to happen the better.   In our age of social media our detractors can be magnified, mean, and even slanderous.

While I always look for truth and things I can change even from my harshest critics, I also realize they have zero impact on my ability to be productive and successful. And reach my goals Even though I am tempted to react, I realize that time spent on my critics is time wasted. They do motivate me to want to work harder.

The best way to silence critics is with success.

4. They Work Hard

We live in an age where many people have the fast food mentality on life – “I want what I want fast and with little cost”.

I believe anything that has value will take effort to achieve.

I often have to make choices about putting more time into stock research and teaching than other recreational things I would rather do. Work / Life balance is important but it is not an excuse to not work hard.

I can’t tell you how many people approach me asking to learn to trade stocks. After I give them some information to read and tell them I will quiz them when done I never hear back from 95% of them.

Many people want the success but don’t want to put in the work or sacrifice to get there.

 

5. They Exercise Regularly

Exercising is a discipline. It takes pushing oneself to get to the gym when there are so many distractions and sometimes lack of motivation. I find that exercising improves not only my health but gives me a positive, confident mindset.

If I am being disciplined with exercising and my diet, it spurs me to de disciplined in other areas in life. I challenge myself to apply the same drive to making money to getting and staying in shape.

    All good until he keeps mentioning research into stocks. True wealth gets others to do this. Does Trump answer phone enquiries?

    Good article just wanted to make a addition, I truly believe the number 1 quality of successful people is that they are very careful about how they spend their time. Life is made up of time and how you spend it make all the difference in living your dream or not.

    Love the photo Paul. The number one quality for me is to learn from failure. Everyone is human and everyone will fail. It’s whether you see it as a lesson or not which will determine if you get the benefit from it.

“It’s been 2 years since I left writing, how would I start it again?” I cried to my friend. Telling him how I failed to generate regular income from sources other than writing, and how I am drowning in 1 million dollars of debt. I left writing because I felt it was the core reason for my depression, but I was totally wrong. It was not the writing that triggered my stress hormones, the real culprit was not knowing “how to write and grow”. (more…)
