“Success is not in what you have, but who you are”, said Bo Bennett

True, isn’t it?

What did bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan had that made him successful in his field? How did Bill Gates achieve so much of success even though he did not have proper education? What makes Warren Buffet so much successful in the field of finance?

While success comes in many different ways and forms, what’s most interesting is that most successful people tend to share key qualities that help them to get and stay ahead. Here are five qualities that separate successful people from the rest of world:


The most successful people in any walk of life know that the secret if the good fortune comes only from dedication. And, the primary ingredient of dedication is “Hard Work”. As the famous quote says, “hard work is the key to success”. To be successful in life, you need to work hard towards your goal. If you work hard and stay dedicated, you can deal with any obstacle that lies on the road towards success.


The second most important quality of successful people is that they believe in themselves. It is certain fact that success is based on action where you need to act but action starts with “Belief”, which is the critical element of being successful. Successful people believe in a lot of things like they believe in their ideas, persistence, and most importantly their abilities. Roger Federer won his eighth wimbledon title, and this is what he said after his victory, “I kept believing and dreaming.” The key to success is that you need to believe in yourself even if no one else does.


Discipline is another attribute that is key to be successful in life. Success rewards those who are consistent and for consistency, you need to have discipline. For example, lets say you have a goal of reducing weight then you need to have discipline while working hard. If you work hard in a gym for a week and then take a break, it may not yield incredible results. Many successful people will tell you that establishing a routine is important if you want to achieve your goal and become successful.


In order to be successful, you need to be passionate about your goal. Passion is the energy that inspires and drives people towards specific goals. Passion is an emotion that leads you to your purpose. If you follow your passion, you will be closer to live a fulfilled life. Passion and success comes hand-in-hand with each other.


And, finally, most importantly, you need to be patient because success doesn’t come overnight. It is a result of extreme hard work, dedication, and discipline. However, if you are not patient enough then you will not be able to achieve success. Like all the above qualities, patience is a key to be successful in life. Lets say you want to be a successful blogger and you work really hard to make your dream a reality but there may be times when you will feel that you are not getting desired results. This is where you need to stay patient and keep believing in yourself and continue doing the hard work. Patience is the key because when then the right time comes, it will be very beautiful and totally worth the wait.


So, do you have all of these qualities? If yes, then the whole world is ready to come to your doorstep and nothing can stop you to become successful.
