Despite being in the same company and the same situation as their colleagues, successful people manage to shine and stand tall.
So what exactly are the common traits of this special breed that make them tick?
Here are some that play a big part here. 

Commitment& Focus

Knowing exactly what needs to be achieved has to be backed up with a steadfast commitment and focus that must be unwavering. The result is a readiness to persevere regardless of the pitfalls along the way.


While there are many who take shortcuts and have occasional wins, it is only those with character and integrity who succeed consistently. They do not compromise on ethics and morals and take ownership for their actions.


In a fast-changing environment, it is important to embrace change and adapt quickly. It helps to be a good learner and have the zest to constantly improve their performances.

Social quotient

Without being a good social animal, it is impossible to attain success in a group effort. A good people’s person is considerate and shows empathy for those around him. Those successful know how to carry their team and inspire them to attain a common goal.


To be able to convey an idea or exchange views is a must. But to be good at communicating well is about being assertive without creating conflict. It is important to be clear and concise, respectful yet assertive and drive to a mutually agreed decision.


Successful people carry a positive attitude that can even rub off on others. Without being cocky, they exude confidence that helps in taking on any challenge. This helps them be decisive and bold in trying out new things and even learning from failures.


Knowledge can be something that smart workers pick up but it is in knowing how to use it in a given situation that most fail. This is where creativity helps and successful people crack a problem without getting stuck.


To be constantly charged and carry an ambition from day one to deep into their careers is a hallmark of successful people. Whatever the assignment or challenge, they are ambitious to succeed and have an innate fighting ability.


Often, there are setbacks that can spring up. Successful people do not allow these to bog them down. Instead, their inbuilt resilience and hardiness help them retain their composure in adverse circumstances to bounce back soon.


Successful people have a high emotional quotient. They view things objectively and do not get swayed by success or failure and move on to the next project. Public opinion or perception does not unduly worry them.

These traits may not be common but successful people possess most or all of these. After all, the above virtues are the keys to open the daily challenges ahead of us.
