No one has ever been able to determine exactly what it takes to succeed in business, but there are characteristics which we know for certain contribute to success, regardless of a person's level of intelligence.
The successful person "learns from experience" and has "drive from within".
They "believe in themselves".
They have "power with people".
They have "character".
They have a sense of direction; they know where they are going and they know they will get there.
They have developed an inner confidence which is expressed openly in their behavior and they have a genuine concern for the well-being of others.
From Bob Proctor
What else do you think it takes to succeed?
