You spend enough time with successful people and you start to notice something. They’re not batting 100%. They’re far from perfect and not too different from the rest of us.
So what’s different? Why do they come across like everything they touch turns to gold?
I’ve noticed a few common traits:
- They don’t dwell on mistakes other than to learn; they fail fast and move on quickly
- They promote their wins well leveraging the concept that success begets more successes
- They appear to be lucky but are more often just taking more at bats than most
