20 Criteria for Your Success

May 25, 2013

Part 2

7. The ability to finish work in progress as well: People with success orientation are not “drop-outs”, things that have been started are mostly done by them till the end. The fear of the “Next”, which leaves many people procrastinating them is largely unknown. They will find always a new and rewarding task.

8. The ability to take the initiative: Each initiative represents a binding to a situation and related consequences. Inhibition of being able to engage in something that is one of the main reasons why people are reluctant to take the initiative. The fear of liability prevents many from entering into a deeper relationship with another human being. Success-oriented individuals have the ability to be responsibly engaged in something, and thus also not afraid to feel life in front of “positive” consequences.

9. The strength to not be afraid of failures: All people make mistakes, and no one intentionally commits them . However, what distinguishes people, are the consequences . Many people develop a fear of failure, which was usually develop in childhood and is a blockage for success-oriented actions. However, making a mistake is not the same as failure. Also, of course, success-oriented people make mistakes, but they make the same mistake – usually – not again. To learn from mistakes and correcting them is an important aspect of the success orientation.

10. The ability not to push things on the back burner: Many people claim that they can work better under pressure. However, this coping strategy is usually very problematic; it is proven that almost all tasks would be qualitatively better if you used the appropriate time for it. That  procrastination in the workplace has a negative effect, is only a consequence. People with performance orientation therefore divide their time so that they can do their jobs well.

11. The strength to be able to accept legitimate criticism: People who are too sure of themselves are thinking, that they are almost invariably and are looking for someone to blame for every mistake they made. But false accusations can lead  in private and professional life to serious negative consequences. People with a winning spirit take responsibility for mistakes, they do not require any excuses and to transfer their guilt on others. Accepting  an error can infer internal size and offers the chance to learn from it.

12. The strength not to regret independently: Permanent self-pity is counter-productive and creates exactly the opposite of what was actually hoping intuitive: attention. Instead, people react with growing impatience and finally turn away. People with focus on success instead use every effort to change unfavourable situations as quickly as possible and fall back into balance.
