Are successful people born or created?
We all carry the capacity to become successful. We’re all equipped with our own special gifts and talents. But some of us lose our path a long the way. Life can be a cruel teacher. We learn to stop dreaming and start being realistic.
People who become great break past the thinking society tries to place on them. They follow their dreams, accomplish something great, and leave their observers in a state of envy and awe.

II Have your say
Here are the traits of people destined for greatness.
1.They’re Not Humble
People who become great are humble on the inside. They put in the work.
They practice. They learn everything that needs to be learned about their craft.
People destined for greatness aren’t considered rational or realistic by society’s standards.
Instead of blindly accepting what others tell them, they make the decision to form their own unique path.
3.They Don’t Believe In Inspiration
People on the path to greatness realize they won’t be feeling up to do the work each and every day.
There will be days where you want to sleep in, avoid doing your work, or keep yourself distracted.
4.They Don’t Live Balanced Lives
Your ability to prioritize time will determine how productive and effective you are. People who are on the path to greatness don’t spend their time democratically.
Successful people do, in fact, get lucky sometimes. They’re lucky because they put themselves in a position to be lucky.
There are two types of luck:
Blind luck – An example of blind luck is winning the lottery.
Purposeful luck – This is the type of luck where you’re spending your time growing, learning, and connecting with people.
You “luckily,” happen to meet your future mentor, business partner, or investor in your company.
6.They Know That Personality Traits Can Be Learned
Some people are naturally charismatic and confident. If you aren’t a natural at these things it doesn’t mean you can’t learn how to develop these traits.
Social skills are important when it comes to being successful.
7.They Visualize Their Success To The Point Of Certainty
Basketball players are trained to visualize their free throws going in before they attempt them.
