Built for success

Built for success

Experience tells me that most people are not built for business success. They are not prepared for the commitment and sacrifice it takes to win. By definition most people are average. No one wants to hear that, especially Americans who have been told how special they are from birth. The top 10% of performers exhibit attributes that are not common to the masses:
  • Drive: the willingness and energy it takes to outlast the crowd
  • Intellect: the ability to think strategically as well as tactically
  • Urgency: the ability to create a sense of urgency and common purpose
  • Innovation: the ability to think creatively about problems and determine solutions
  • Motivation: the ability to marshal human resources toward a common vision
  • Service: the capacity and willingness to serve others and put others ahead of themselves
  • Passion: a sense of flow when working (a higher purpose)
  • Capacity to handle ambiguity: the ability to work with less than all the facts and have the flexibility to act
  • Healthy lifestyle: the willingness to take care of themselves physically and mentally
  • Constant curiosity: always looking for learning opportunities, with a natural interest in how things function and relate
