Eight common traits in successful leaders around the world – by Richard St. John

PASSION – The biggest factor!

Passion is the biggest factor
Passion is the biggest factor. 

No matter what you hear, listen to your heart and do what is right, not just for you, but for the common good of those around you. If you are passionate about the cause you are deeply committed to, success is but inevitable isn’t it?

So, what would be my answer to the child, if it had asked whether I was successful? I would say ‘YES! Absolutely!’

What is my success? At the end of the day, when I reflect on my actions and reactions and know that I made someone happy and my actions resulted in the betterment of a situation from how I found it before I situated myself in it, be it voluntarily or involuntarily, I succeed-that day. And do it again the following day and for however long the charade would last.

Then my hope is that the footprints I leave behind will be strong, deep and worthy enough to be followed by those I had joy of connecting with and inspiring. That to me, would be MY true success. Whats yours? 🙂
