5 Essential Positive Character Traits For A Better Life.
You have everything within you to achieve your best life possible. The great thing is that all success is learnable. You can learn any character traits to make yourself a more successful person. There are many ways that you can become successful and many different meanings of the word success. Here are five important, character traits that one must learn to develop to achieve success and a better life. 1) Common Sense The first and most important of the personal qualities needed for success is, common sense. It is said that the average person has an enormous amount of common sense because he or she hasn’t used any of it yet. Common sense seems to be something that a person accumulates as the result of experience over a long period of time. Common sense is defined as the, “Ability to cut to the core of a matter, to recognize and deal with the essential elements of a problem or a situation, rather than getting sidetracked by smaller issues or symptoms.” Another definition of common sense is, “The ability to learn from experience and then to apply those lessons to subsequent experiences.” Common sense was seen as the core of all personal qualities that enabled a person to become increasingly more effective over time. 2) Be Good At What You Do The second of all the personal qualities needed for success is that of expertise. Most successful people are very good at what they do and they know they are very good.
