We can fail in so many ways. Often, it is just a matter of stumbling through, not looking for a better path. We forge new paths to failure. That is often “life on automatic.”
If someone has succeeded, though, they leave a trail. The more people who succeed that same way just make the trail more clear, the path easier to follow. Success always leaves a trail. Everywhere in life.
When I wanted to write a book, I knew I could stumble through… and maybe I would succeed.
Or maybe I would fail.
An easy way to fail? Never figuring out how to start. Never writing. That would certainly keep me from writing a book. But there were lots of other ways to fail at it.
Or… I could talk to others who had done it.
Success leaves a trail.
Corey Poirier is a professional speaker. But he has another distinction. He has interviewed over 5000 high-achievers. And over time, he noticed some common traits of high-achievers.
I had a chance to interview Corey… while he was getting rushed out of his hotel room! The life of a speaker!
Anyway, in our interview, Corey shared the 5 top traits of high-achievers. These traits are not just about business (although they apply there). They are also about life!
