6 Types of People Who Progress Faster

Published

on

It recently dawned on me that even after working, praying, and believing, the progress towards success is usually super-slow for most of us. However, there are six types of people who seem to get ahead faster. These guys make quick progress, and for this reason, everybody around them believes they will succeed. These guys are ordinary individuals with exceptional characters.

Here are they:

  1. The Passionate

Passionate individuals progress quickly because they are obsessed with their work. They work all the time without getting tired because they enjoy their work, and don’t perceive it as work. Their work ethic makes them progress quickly because they do more things within a short period.

A passionate person working 16 hours a day is more likely to get ahead faster than an individual working 10 hours day.

  1. The Strong Willed

Strong-willed people are highly determined folks who will do whatever it takes to succeed. They progress quicker because nothing can stop them on the road to success. Obstacles never slow them down because they will do everything they can to quickly overcome them.

Besides this, they never waste time thinking of past or possible failures because they only focus on achieving their goals. They fully utilize the present moment and do whatever it takes to meet success.

  1. Highly Self-Disciplined Individuals

Highly self-disciplined individuals progress faster because they work even when they don’t feel like working. Passionate individuals might progress slower because they might stop working when discouraged or when they don’t feel like working. However, self-disciplined individuals, work even when demotivated, and they don’t need huge doses of motivation for them to keep moving forward.

Furthermore, self-disciplined individuals progress quickly because they seldom get distracted. They never allow anything to stop them from getting things done.

  1. The Risk-Takers

Risk-takers fail a lot. However, they get ahead faster than those who play safe when their risks pay-off. Risk takers also learn to overcome the fear of failure hence resulting in them progressing quickly because they try out many things, and fail forward. Lastly, risk takers learn a lot from taking risks, and they also meet many opportunities that come from risk-taking.

‘Progress always involves risks. You can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first.’ – Frederick Wilcox

  1. Emotionally Intelligent Individuals

Emotionally intelligent folks progress quicker because they know how to relate to people. Also, people love to do business deals with them because they are supportive and likable. They, therefore, get ahead faster because they can team up with many individuals and work towards a common goal.

  1. Individuals who focus on one thing

Individuals who focus on one thing progress quicker than those who invest their efforts in many things/projects. Many individuals usually progress slower because they have a plan B which they also work on because they fear that plan A might fail. Little do they know that having a backup plan slows them down because it divides their attention.

If two people want to succeed in music, and one dedicates all his time on music, while the other one only practices music for 5 hours a day, and uses the rest of the day to work on another project that might provide income in case he fails in music, which of the two will progress faster?

People who have backup plans move slower because they focus on failure and they never trust in their dreams/projects, and abilities. They mostly concentrate on things that will help them in case of failure. However, people who die with one plan/project often succeed quicker, because they believe in themselves/their projects, and they give them 100% of their time and effort.

‘There is no reason to have a plan B because it distracts you from plan A.’ – Will Smith

Concluding Remarks

I always wondered why some people progress quicker than others. For this reason, I studied a number of successful people and I realized that passionate, strong-willed, disciplined, risk-taking, emotionally intelligent individuals, and those who focus on one thing often succeed faster than the rest of us. However, there are many more types of people who get ahead faster, and you are free to mention them in the comment box below.

4 Unique Lessons I Learned From Goal Setting that Will Make You Start Setting Goals Right Now

Published

on

Before I started setting goals, I thought goal setting was useless because I never saw how the practice could improve my life. However, I realized the magic of goal setting when I started setting and writing down goals in August 2015.

Goal setting is a wonderful thing, and many studies reveal that people who set goals progress quicker than those who don’t. Besides progress, there are other lessons I learned from goal setting which many people don’t tell you.

Here are they

  1. Goal Setting Proves that the Law of Attraction Works

According to The Law of Attraction, you attract what you constantly think about. I never believed this law until I started writing down my goals and realized that I achieved some of my goals because I constantly thought about them. For example, in 2015, one of my main goals was to get an exotic dog. I didn’t have the money to buy the dog but the amazing thing is that I got it. I know you are wondering how I got the dog.

Here’s how?

After writing down the goal of getting a dog, I became obsessed with getting a dog because I always read my goals every day.  I spent a large percentage of my time thinking and talking about how I will get a dog.

A few months later, my friend’s dog fell sick, and I offered to take care of it. One day as I was taking it to the vet, I met a friend’s friend who asked me to take care of his dog because he was traveling.

I accepted the offer, and after a few weeks, the dog owner told me to keep it because he believed that he will never have the time to care for his dog. And that’s how I got Bobby, the best dog in the world.

By the way, Bobby was pregnant when I got her, and she gave birth to six pups on 9th October 2015.

  1. Goal Setting Proves That You Don’t Have to Know the ‘How.’

I wrote in the article, 4 Major Reasons Why We Avoid Dreaming Big, that people fear to dream big because they don’t know how they will achieve big dreams. I also feared to dream big whenever I thought about ‘how’ I could achieve big dreams.

However, setting big goals and achieving them enabled me to dream big because I realized that I don’t always have to know how I will achieve my goals.

In 2015, one of my goals was to relocate to Nairobi (Kenya’s Capital City), but I didn’t have the money for relocation. I never knew where I could get the money but I just wrote down the goal.

Five months later, my friend Silas called and informed me about a vacancy at his workplace which was in the city. I went to the city, passed the interview, and my parents sponsored the relocation. It a happened so fast. I didn’t know how it happened, but it happened. I found myself working and living in Nairobi.

  1. Goal Setting Increases Faith in Big Things

Goal setting increased my faith in achieving big things because I always achieve half of the goals I set regardless of how big or small they are. My three years of experience with goal setting made me set big goals this year because I have faith that I will achieve most of them.

  1. Goal Setting Made me a Hard worker

I always know that I will be depressed or I might give up on goal setting if I don’t achieve my goals. Therefore, I often work hard so that I achieve my goals. For this reason, I now have a hard working habit because I have never stopped setting goals.

Concluding Remarks

Therefore goal setting can increase your faith, make you a hard worker, and enable you to realize that you can achieve whatever you set your mind to.

For this reason, start setting goals and you will experience the power of goal setting after you achieve half of the goals you’ll set. Lastly, remember to pray for the wisdom and strength you need for achieving your goals.
