Although there are no standards that can be applied to everyone to succeed in their careers, there are a number of features that appear in all the great entrepreneurs in the world, from Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos. Susan Wojcicki.
Here are 5 features that separate the richest world from others:
1. Not afraid of failure
Everything never meets your expectations. Many studies show that 90% of startups in the world have failed at least once, many ideas have not been successful and many have rejected them. However, successful people will not leave anything that could prevent them from moving. Instead, they learned a lot from failure.
When Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in 1994, he showed a 30% chance of success. In fact, the Amazon leader has met many failures, from Fire Smartphone to Amazon Wallet, but he never ceased to seize the opportunity to watch success.
"If you have decided to bet, consider it as an experience. And if there is experience, you will not know if it really works. Experience is often unsuccessful. "Jeff Bezos said at the 2014 Business Insider Ignition conference.
2. Set ambitious goals
This is one of the most popular features of billionaire Elon Musk. It has always set ambitious goals, such as underground tunnels or human brain connections with computers.
Set (and try to achieve) Ambitious goals can bring you many benefits and you will feel happy in the long run. According to many reports, people with ambitious goals feel more satisfied than others after achieving their goals. When you set conservative goals and don't dare to "dream big", the satisfaction you get from achieving them is much lower.
Oprah Winfrey is a champion when it comes to getting in order. She started out as a TV reporter, then developed her career by interfering with films, podcasts and websites. Now Oprah Winfrey is still ranked the highest rated daily show in American history. At the age of 32 she became a millionaire.
3. Leadership by experience
The leader's perspective not only reflects the vision of the future of business, but also the affection of many people. Successful leaders always know when to lead from objective strategy and when to lead with empathy and humanity.
A good leader must be the one who moves the problem-making process and gives it to his or her employees to decide the problem. If you are a good leader, power will come to you, but you must also use the power of others. You need to support the decision making process and this process works.
4. Know the best ideas to come in unexpected times
Brain study and inner thinking processes (dream, imagine) revealed that our moments often appear in the most unexpected times. The information appeared in consciousness, but the problem was solved unconsciously, so the moments of "Oa ka" always appeared in unexpected times.
At Reddit, Elon Musk said he thought of the best ideas when he bathed. Leaders from the most successful companies in the world, such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Google, are meeting on foot. (ie just stand, walk and meet) because they believe it is a time when people focus, create and work best.
Successful leaders always let thoughts flow through their brains without having to see when and where the idea emerges. Let your creativity grow freely.
5. Always creative and beyond reality
If you were at the top of the mountain, it seems that you have no way to go on and think it's the highest peak of success. The difference between ordinary people and successful people is here.
In 1899, Charles H. Duell, chief of the US Patent Office, once proudly said, "Everything people can think of was invented." And from there until now there are millions of new inventions, including countless truly important ones that play an indispensable role for us.
Successful people never accept reality and always find new ideas, develop plans for 5, 10 or even 20 years to break all the usual thought limits and paths.
