Successful people have a number of qualities in common, qualities that have helped them to achieve greatness. By incorporating some of these qualities into our lives we can model the same behavior and hopefully achieve similar results.
In this episode, I’ll share with you eight qualities that I’ve noticed many success people have in common and suggest ways that you can take immediate action to incorporate these qualities into your life.

TAKE ACTION CHALLENGE:
To help you stay nimble, here is this week’s Take Action Challenge. Take these 4 action steps in the next week.
1. Find some quiet time and mediate on your definition of success. What does it look like, specifically, for you? How will you know it when you achieve it? What will your life look like when you are successful? Jot down whatever ideas come to you, then consolidate those ideas into a couple of sentences that specifically articulate your definition of success.
2. Given your newly articulated definition of success, assess where you are in the different areas of your life in relation to the definition. Give yourself a rating on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being full achievement of success. Assess areas such as Health, Financial, Social Relationships, Spiritual, Career, Family, Spouse/Partner, Community, or any other area that is important to you.
3. Write down three actions that you will take in the next 7 days to move you in the direction of your goals and towards greater success. Commit to following through with these three actions by sharing them with a friend or family member. Start small, make these first actions steps things that you will easily follow through with. For example, rather than saying you will go on a diet, commit to eating healthy 4 tomorrow. Once you accomplish an action step, set a new goal and keep the momentum moving forward!
4. When was the last time you learned something new? If your answer wasn’t “today”, it’s been too long. Increase your knowledge, learn a new skill, try a new sport, or read about a place you’d like to visit one day. Don’t be part of the majority that maintains the minimal amount of skill necessary to survive. Take a risk, try something for the first time. You may not be great at it, but you just might find a new passion!
