"The true character of a person is showed when failure is present. It is easy to be a winner that wins but its harder when you believe in what you do and know you can do it but still fail time after time"
The other day when I was at a café I overheard two girls discussing their future, or at least their very near future.
Girl 1: "I am so looking forward to going out tonight in Hollywood."
Girl 2: "Yeah, I know. I am so excited."
Girl 1: "I hope we meet some celebrities tonight."
Girl 2: "Yeah that would be great, maybe we will get discovered."
Discovered for what? Unfortunately a lot of people (especially in LA) believe that they somehow by dancing and drinking next to a celebrity will get discovered.
The dream conversation will go something like this:
Celebrity (approaching dancing girl): "You look like a great actor. Would you like to star in my next movie?"
Dancing girl: "Yaay, of course."
It could happen, but let's get real here, chances are one in a million.
Instead of believing in luck, it is time to put in the hours to actually have something to offer.
3 Important Traits of Successful People
I study success for a living and what I have seen in all successful people is these three (among many more) traits:
1. They are constantly learning
If you watch and listen to the greatest athletes of all times you will start to realize that despite how many World Titles or Olympic Gold Medals they have won they still want to learn and improve. Why is that do you think? Because they want to win over others but most importantly they want to know how good they can really become.
2. They party less and work more
If you still believe you can get discovered in the club or on the street please forget about that for a while. Invest your time and money wiser than hitting up the clubs everyday. Off course you have to enjoy life but if you really want to be good at something you have to put in the hours. Research show that to become an expert in any given skill you have to spend about 10000 hours doing it. That's 3 hours a day for 10 years, so lets go!
3. They let failure fuel them
The true character of a person is showed when failure is present. It is easy to be a winner that wins but its harder when you believe in what you do and know you can do it but still fail time after time. The most successful people have failed many times, just like you and me, the big (and only) difference is that they let the failure fuel them to go forward, learn and be better next time.
