3 Qualities of Successful People

By: Michael Blankenship |

“Success is often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.” 

— Coco Chanel

I know really successful people who wake up late and drink soda every day. I also have successful friends who never exercise. 

What are the ACTUAL ground-zero common qualities between successful people? 

A study by the Department of Psychology at Union College in New York discovered three qualities that all ultra-successful people seemed to share. They were… 

1. They Have a Superiority Complex

They believe that they are better than other people, that they deserve more, and that they are capable of greatness. This is an unshakeable part of their worldview.

2. They Have Crippling Insecurity

They feel like they’ll never be enough and that they’ll always be measured against the things that they’ve achieved. 

3. They Have Impulse Control

They’re able to control their actions and focus on a single thing for an extended period of time. 

If you put those three things together, something beautiful happens. 

You have a big fear you’re running away from, a big goal you’re running toward, and impulse control to keep you focused on the one thing that matters most. 

If that’s you, you’re very likely going to be successful.
