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 still super-slow for most people. However, there are six types of people who seem to get ahead faster. These guys make quick progress and 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.

  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 as they don’t need 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 progress faster because they overcome the fear of failure by trying out many things and failing forward. Lastly, risk takers learn a lot from taking risks, and they also meet many opportunities that accompany 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 progress slowly because they also work on a plan B as 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 with backup plans move slower because they focus on failure and they never trust their projects and abilities. They also fail to dedicate all their resources to one thing.

‘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 the above types of people progress quicker than the rest of us. However, there are many more types of people who get ahead faster. You are free to mention them in the comment box below.

Top 6 Reasons Most People Can’t Persevere on the Journey to Success

Published

on

Perseverance refers to the ability to work persistently towards one’s goals despite facing difficulties.

After studying successful people for five years, I realized they all persevered since they never gave up despite facing obstacles. Nothing stopped them from working towards their dreams.

Besides successful folks, we can also persevere but most people can’t because of the following reasons.

1.People Don’t Study Success

Studying success enlightens you that difficulties, failure, or discouragement are part of the journey hence enabling you to work in spite of their presence. Moreover, studying success shows you that only those who persist succeed hence motivating you to persevere.

Most people who never study success seldom persevere because they don’t’ understand the journey, and therefore, misinterpret difficulties. They believe difficulties are a sign of failure.

2.The Lack of Self-Confidence

Most people can’t persevere because they lack self-confidence. They doubt their abilities and skills and give up easily when they face obstacles.

Successful people persevered because they believed in themselves. They believed they could overcome obstacles and continued working towards their goals when obstacles arrived.

3.The Myth of Overnight Success

The myth of overnight success has resulted in the inability to persevere because it makes people think success comes easily. This myth has made aspirers believe that success arrives soon after they start working towards it. For this reason, most aspirers give up when they realize that they’ll have to work for a long period and overcome several difficulties before success arrives.

4.People focus on the Outcome

Most individuals can’t persevere because they focus on the outcome. It’s hard to persevere when you focus on the results because it usually takes long before we get the results we expect. People who persevere focus on the process instead of the results. They know they’ll get the results they want if they forget about them and work on improving their skills.

5.The Lack of Passion

People who hate their work seldom persevere because they focus on results and misinterpret difficulties. Furthermore, they easily get bored with their work hence making it difficult to work when they face obstacles. Conversely, passionate people persevere because they are obsessed with their work and perceive difficulty as a chance for growth.

6.Focusing on the Possibility of Failure

Focusing on the possibility of failure prevents people from persevering because it discourages them from working towards their goals when they face difficulties. It makes people think there’s no need to continue working because they might fail.

Most successful people focused on success: they believed they’ll succeed no matter what, and this belief motivated them to continue working in spite of discouragement.

Conclusion

It’s easier for most people to work when everything is going well. However, when the going gets tough most people get discouraged and give up. The ability to work when everything is going wrong sets successful people apart. We must, therefore, master the art of perseverance because perseverance will enable us to achieve whatever we want.

If you don’t give up you can’t fail.’ – Menna Vaan Praag, Successful Author

5 Powerful Reasons Why Passion is a Key to Success

Published

on

I once believed that we don’t need passion to succeed. However, when I started blogging, I realized that passion is a key to success. I noticed that my passion for blogging made me write articles consistently.

Besides this, my research on successful people enlightened me that successful people are passionate about their jobs. They work 24/7 because they enjoy and love their work.

These findings forced me to think deeply about the relationship between passion and success hence making me realize that passion leads to success because it:

1.Makes it Hard for You to Give Up

It will be hard for you to give up on something when you are passionate because you won’t care about the results. You’ll only care about doing your thing, and you’ll do it even when you don’t get the desired results. For instance, if you love singing, you’ll continue singing even when you only have 5 views on Youtube.

2.Makes You a Hard Worker

Passion makes you work more hours because it makes you obsessed with your work. You’ll want to work whenever you find time because you love your work. Besides this, when you are passionate, you’ll work long hours because you won’t be able to tell the difference between work and play. For you, working will be playing.

3.Changes Your Attitudes Towards Difficulties

People who aren’t passionate about their jobs have a negative attitude towards obstacles. They either see them as threats or messages from the universe that they’ll never succeed.

However, passionate people perceive obstacles as an opportunity for growth. They are always eager to overcome them, and they believe they’ll become better at their craft after overcoming obstacles.

4.Prevents You From Wasting Time

If you do what you love, you’ll be obsessed with work because you’ll be excited about it. For this reason, you’ll want to spend most of your time working, and you’ll avoid wasting time on useless activities such as gossiping or liking and commenting on Facebook posts all day.

5.Increases Focus

Passion leads to obsession, which breeds focus. Focus leads to success because it increases the quality of your work as it makes you more skilled and knowledgeable. Besides this, focus prevents you from making mistakes and breeds consistency hence increasing your chances of succeeding.

Conclusions

People who don’t like their jobs seldom succeed because they mostly focus on getting things done. Moreover, they never reach great heights because they usually lack the motivation to improve their skills. However, passionate people have high chances of succeeding because passion increases focus, motivates them to work hard, and changes their attitude towards difficulties. And, lastly, it makes them want to work all the time hence forcing them to avoid time wasting activities.
