Can I make a quick guess? One of your top goals in life is to be successful.
I know that may mean so many different things to different people…for some, it may mean becoming very rich, for some other persons, it may mean becoming famous. For yet other persons it may mean getting to the very top of their career.
No matter what being successful means to you, if you think the way super successful people think and adopt the same habits they have, you can be super successful in anything you set your heart on.
Here are nine qualities of super successful people you can begin to adopt:
1. They are responsible
Successful people take 100% responsibility for their lives. They never blame other people or circumstances for their success or failure. They know they are the CEO of their lives and it is up to them to take responsibility and make their lives what they want it to be in line with God’s plans for them.
According to Success.com, they have an attitude of being self-employed. A self-employed person, especially at the beginning of the business, puts on many caps. He is the operations manager, the marketing manager, the human resources manager, the financial manager, the driver, the receptionist and so many other roles as required by the business. They know they are responsible for the success or otherwise of the business.
Successful people take on a similar stance with their lives. They take responsibility for their finances, their career, and their relationships…every aspect of their lives.
2. They are intentional
The top people in any given society are intentional about life. They do not wait for life to happen to them, they create their own life.
Most people go through life merely existing. Super successful people, on the other hand, are intentional about their lives. Because they know they are here on purpose, for a purpose, they go about their lives with such intentionality. It reflects in how they handle different situations and challenges they face each day.
3. They are ambitious
These are two words that describe wildly successful people. They are ambitious. They never believe in the word impossible. When they dream, they dream BIG. Take a peek at the goals and aspirations of a wildly successful person and you could almost get intimidated if you’re not an ambitious person too. They never entertain thoughts or feelings of inferiority.
They always see themselves as being capable of being the best at anything they do.

Fear is the number one enemy of success. Successful people confront their fears.
Successful people acknowledge that they face certain fears however they do not allow the fears to hold them back from their dreams. They keep moving, defying their fears.
They are able to defy their fears because they make a habit of doing the thing they fear; and because when you do the thing you fear, the death of fear is certain, they keep putting their fears to death.
5. They invest in their most valuable asset-their minds
The mind is man’s most valuable asset. Successful people understand this and deliberately invest in their minds. They read books. According to Business Insider, 85% of Successful (rich) people read two or more self-improvement or education-related books per month as against 15% of the poor.
By reading, they not only increase their intelligence but they are also being energized to pursue their goals.
Successful people read for self-improvement and not for entertainment. Bill Gates is said to read 50 books per year. That’s roughly one book per week. Wonder why he is super successful?
