What is your success factor

I ask my participants, “What is your success factor in life”  Some of them told me about luck, support from parents, good PR skills ,  good experience and profound professional knowledge” I was surprised that none of them explain the success factor from attitude point of view. As a result, many people do not put much emphasize on attitude development.

Lately, I discover that “skills training” is more popular than attitude training.  Many people want to learn leadership skills, selling skills, negotiation skills etc. In fact, ton of skills would become useless if we do not have the right mental attitude to apply them. Many professional are not doing their best in their choosing skills just because they are too smart to break the rules with WRONG ATTITUDE. There are doctors who are trapped in jail just because they misused their professional knowledge and skills.

In fact, I wish to acknowledge that attitude is as important as skills and knowledge. This is why most of the company stating the Core Values as part of their staff appraisal system. Good attitude lead to better commitment, better responsibility and better productivity. It also leads to better team work, better working relationship and better organization culture.

There are few criteria to inject “good attitude” among work force:

First : Reminder and pointer

People need to be remind again and again wither through verbal, written or demo by others. The more we remind them, the attitude become stronger

Second : Rules and guidelines

People want to know what can be done, and what cannot be done. When we have set up a standard performance for ourselves, we will use the guideline in our daily life.

Third : Rewards and penalty

People want to be appreciated when they are doing the right things.  The more we rewards people, the better their self esteem to carry out positive attitude. Penalty is another way of creating awareness but must be executed in good term to avoid resistance to change.

There are many success factors which impact your performance. These success factors are varies base on your key performance indication (Kpi) and environment challenges. The tougher the challenges, the more success factors would be involved. Any how, attitude factor can always rank number one in the world class performance. Most of the world class competition is not just depend on skills , but more on mental factor.


Success principles

Attitude is always the major success factor in all area of endeavor. When the game become tougher, the attitude of achiever must be equipped with greater and smarter attitude.


Success behavior

I discover that some people become successful quite easily compare to others. They seem to attract all the luck and fortune to his life without much challenge.  While some other people trying hard with lot of sacrifice, but still cannot get the result that he aspire. When we ask those successful people, “what have you done so far?” You will be surprised that they just do simple things which you and I are doing.  In fact, you might do better than them, yet you don’t get the result as good as them. The question is “What stops you from achieving your success in life?” The answer is “Success behavior”.

Some time ago, a good friend of mine is having a good business idea.  He starts sharing his idea with his good friend and seeks for advice. After few years, he manages to get support from a prominent business man and start venturing into his business. While I also have another good friend who is having great idea but the idea still remain dormant after ten years. When I communicate with these two persons, I find that the first friend has many unique behaviors that lead him towards success. He is friendly and ready to click with everyone, he has a giver heart and he want to share his knowledge and wisdom, he is also open to new ideas and ready to accept better suggestion.

Good ideas and knowledge is not everything in success. To make it happen, you need to get support and help from others. If your behavior is wholesome, you would be able to do it much easier than others. In fact, your behavior and character are the fundamental of LUCK.


Success principles

Always analyze your behavior before you blame others for not able to work with you to achieve what you want in life.
