A belief in themselves. The most important factor in their confidence is their ability to have others believe in them. The belief others have in them gives them confidence when they may have doubt and provides them reassurance they are able to accomplish anything set forth ahead.
The greatest example of this is the legend known as Muhammad Ali, formerly Cassius Clay.Muhammad Ali is known as well-known for his showmanship as his championship pedigree. What few have ever understood is despite all of his trash talking antics, this man had his pulse rate test at more than double his usual rate prior to the Sonny Liston fight in 1964.
It’s safe to say he was nervous and a little scared, right? While this may contradict all of the trash talk prior to the fight, could it be his confidence and show was meant to convince himself he could do it? Better yet, what if the confidence he was able to get others to have in him played a major role in his successful fights and times of doubt?
In our analysis’ this was truly a momentum turning discovery. We began reflecting on past milestone events in our own lives and in the lives of those we had interacted with. The discoveries that maintaining total commitment through conviction and confidence were directly responsible for these accomplishments and overcoming past struggles into victories.
Three keys that separates an individual’s social status:
1.) Attainability: The number one thing that separates a “successful” versus an “un-successful” person, are goals. Having long-term and short-term goals are essential to climbing up the ladder of life. If you are blindly reaching out for anything you can grab to, because you don’t know what you want out of life, you will have a difficult time achieving success as you haven’t identified it. You must write out your goals and stare at them, daily. This will play on both your conscious and subconscious mind.
2.) Punctuality: Being punctual is a vital, yet an often overlooked characteristic. Just think of when you were to meet someone, and they were 20 minutes late, and how you felt about them. Unreliable, right? If you are always on time in your personal life, it will carry over in to your professional life as well. This will transcend in to accomplishing your goals as well as every other aspect of your life in a timely manner. Our time is limited, and we must take advantage of each second.
3.) Likeability: Being liked is a deal breaker for most people. We want to surround ourselves with people that we can stand being around for long periods of time. If you are not likeable, though possess more qualifications than another person you’re being interviewed against for a job, they will pick the likeable person over you nine times out ten. Smiling, being an attentive and active listeners are what we have concluded as the strongest reasons.
