List of The Most Important Personality Characteristics in Business
Have you ever wondered what types of personality characteristics are needed for success? Or those that lead to failure? Well if so, you’re in luck! This article is all about the key personality characteristics that can either lead to success or failure. So listen up, these are important!
Our first characteristic is laziness. Let’s face it. Most people are just downright lazy. Given a choice, they would prefer to do something easy over something hard. We all would, right? The reason this is such an important personality characteristic is that laziness can also be a powerful motivator to succeed. Since laziness is essentially a desire to get the most done, in the shortest time, being lazy can be a good thing! If you think about it, all human progress and technological advancement have come from a desire to get things done easier and quicker than the traditional way of doing them. Why walk, when you can ride a bike? Why bike, when you can drive? Hell, why drive when you can fly! The point is, whilst laziness certainly can lead to failure, it can also lead to success. However it’s a slippery slope, so don’t get too lazy, or you might find yourself unable to pay the rent!
If I were to ask you what you would prefer, more money or less money, which would you prefer? Hmmm, that’s a hard one. Let me think about that for a minute…Not! Of course, given a choice people will always choose more over less, that’s obvious. So how does greed affect success or failure? Well, greed, like laziness can also be a powerful motivator to succeed, or it can lead to failure. Like laziness, it’s a slippery slope. Greed, or the desire for more, can motivate you to work hard, stay up late and generally try your utmost hardest to get that new phone, car, house, etc… you always wanted to. So the greed characteristic if harnessed correctly, can be an extremely powerful force to have on your side. However, the trouble with greed is that you are never satisfied with what you have. And greedy people always want more. What happens to greedy people? That’s right, they get fat! Too much greed can cause a person to buy everything they see or desire, and so greed can be a very quick way to lose all your money!
Do you enter a race to win, or to lose? Winning is what all people want to do in life, no one likes coming in 2nd place, because deep down we are all ambitious. Ambition is a characteristic that all successful people have. It is a desire to rise to the top and beat a competitor. However, there are 2 types of ambition. The first is an ambition for short-term gain, for example winning a football game. The second type of ambition is for long-term gain, for example winning the football championship.
Unfortunately, most people tend to pursue short-term ambitions, but success is not built upon short-term gain. To be truly successful you need to pursue longer-term gains, and this is what counts.
