6 Qualities That Make You A Super Achiever
In today’s world, productivity is everything. We are constantly chasing that golden standard of achievement. But we know it does not happen overnight. High achievers do a number of daily activities, they possess a specific number of qualities and from both of these elements, they adopt a fool-proof list of daily habits, ritual and practices.
“You’re always working to improve, and you’re always being critiqued on your next performance. It’s not about what you’ve done. There’s always room to grow.” (Misty Copeland, first ever African-American principal dancer in 75-year American Ballet Theatre history)
Being a success means acknowledging that there is always room to grow. Being a super achiever means looking beyond obstacles and distractions. It means focusing on the goals and tasks at hand, no matter the level of difficulty, challenges or temporary hardship.
Here is a list of ten qualities we believe every super achiever must possess:
Dedication to a Vision:
Glossy magazine success stories often don’t show the dark moments, the daily grind or flagging energy that super-achievers endure to realize their goals. As we already know, every great success starts with inspiration, but not every inspiration leads to success. The most common we have when it comes to achievement is devotion to the day-to-day struggle of life, work, family and productivity. A strong devotion to a specific vision helps to combat any issues we will inevitably face during the course of our day,
One thing successful people know: Dedication and blind persistence are two very different things. In order to achieve greatness we must endeavour to work hard and smart. Instead of using the same ineffective tactics, super-achievers pivot, adapt, experiment and try to tackle problems from a different angle.
Conditions can never be really changed—they can only be dealt with. Working for yourself involves a lot of emotions. Fear, impatience, frustration, anger at times, even sadness or depression. We must learn as super achievers to manage our emotions, especially if our daily activities involve running a household and taking care of young kids. We are depended on for strength, joy and peace. We must make sure we manage our emotions very well or else we will find ourselves exposed to a plethora of other problems.
Successful people never stop learning and adapting. Tennis champion and legend Martina Navratilova realized this when her game suddenly started sliding. She transformed her training routine and diet, and soon was back on track to become an all-star athlete. We have a duty to ourselves to obsess over self improvement, self confidence, self discipline and ultimately, self optimisation. We must desire always to be our best selves.
Inaction, or stillness, can sometimes be just as useful as action. Sometimes, we just need to take a step back and be patient with ourselves. More times than not, our goals, aims and targets can bring more pressure than it brings pleasure and when this happens, we simply resent the thought of working towards achieving them. Practice stillness. Practice quietness. Fall in love with silence at times and step away from the noise. Doing this can transform your results.
Success fuels happiness, and happiness in turn fuels greater success. Famous record-breaking Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings said that once he became a contestant on a game show, it filled his entire life with passion. That happiness helped him win, and winning ended up giving him the confidence he needed to pursue a career he loved: writing. Seeking happiness in your life and work turns out to be a win-win.
