You can be a master achiever by developing same qualities of those who seem to achieve more than others. Here are 5 qualities you need to master in order to become a successful person in your chosen field and in your life.
Achievers are creative. Creativity is a fundamental quality of a visionary leader. Creativity is also essential for problem-solving, conflict resolution, crisis and change management.
As they are extensively goal and result oriented, achievers need to come up with many solutions to reach their goals; therefore they need to be more creative than others. An effective method for you to be more creative in problem resolution is:
First, sit down in a comfortable chair and think about all ways to resolve problem, even if it may be absurd. This is not time to be critical, but time to think without any judgment. Come up with at least 20 solutions.
The first eight solutions will be obvious; second eight solutions will require some effort and therefore creativity. You will see that last two solutions will be hardest to find, but most creative. And they will surely be ones that you will stick to.
Second, act out in your head movie of how you would implement each solution. And third, be critical as far as each solution is concerned. This is an effective way to resolve problems used by effective leaders and managers.
Develop Habit of Courage. They have developed habit of courage. Courage to wake up earlier and go to bed later. They've developed self-discipline. Self-discipline is astering yourself, your actions, thinking and emotions. They know that in order to become leaders for others, they need to become a leader for themslves first.
It takes courage to have self-discipline but it is learnable. They take action even if it is uncomfortable. They go out of their comfort zone, and go for opportunities. Talk about courage!
An effective method to develop habit of courage is to see opportunities to grow and evolve in every challenge you face. Face your fears and learn from them. There is always a positive intention behind every fear you feel.
