Seven Behaviors Of Successful People

Here's a good one from business coach Ron Finkelstein on Results.

Studies have shown that there are seven behaviors that all successful people exhibit. These behaviors include being:
  • Selfish
  • Focused
  • Disciplined
  • Persistent
  • Take Ownership
  • Results Oriented
  • People Focused

It's these kind of people that produce results.

Results: Results mean to end in a particular way. You defined your goals; the outcome you want to achieve. You defined how you want things to end and because you took ownership you now have the power to create the desired outcomes. You can create the results.

When you don’t get the results you want you fall back to persistence, ownership, focus and discipline and know that you have the skills, the drive, the desire, the knowledge and the roadmap that will take you where you want to go. Results are simply a way of measuring your success. You either got the job done or you didn’t. If you didn’t, because of your ownership, you go back and try something different.

BOTTOMLINE: According to Yoda..."there is no trying, only doing.” You either got the desired results or you didn’t. No excuses. No remorse. Only results.
