I have seen a lot of successful people in my life. I have not been able to be one of them. There is always something those successful people do that we commoner do not do. They are different. They do things differently, but avoid doing different things. I am amazed by simplicity and openness of successful people when I meet them. They are mostly like one of us.
Here I try to list different things I see successful people doing:
- Think like a common person
- Act not like a common person
- Exhibit thirst and hunger for more responsibility
- Give respect and expect nothing in return
- Empower institution and do not worship a person
- Be realist and avoid idealists
- Start small and think big
- Learn politics and do no politics
- Write less and speak more
- Save your earning
If you do these things, I guarantee, you will reach peak one day unless you have so many other weaknesses that supersede these qualities.
