For good or bad, successful people have ways of making plans and reaching to where they are. Looking at their successes, either from a financial or non-financial point of view, one should not just look at what they have achieved.....
If one were to ask, how did they do it? Then, there are just too many answers to it, too. From a financial perspective, they may have inherited their wealth. They may have worked hard throughout their lives. They may have the help of great friends. From a non-financial perspective, they may know what they want, such as getting a PhD or a Master’s Degree. They may have thought of a new idea, pursued it and won an award for it.
So, if one were to ask, what could we learn from successful people? One of it would be learn to observe their trends.
This may include observing how they speak, think and approach whatever they do. Are they perfect? No, of course. But, they definitely do have more positive than negative trends.
So, observing them would be a good start and who knows what you may learn from these observations.
Choose someone whom you can see quite often and start observing them. Can you spot any unique behavior? Lastly, continue to observe him or her and then see if you can conclude if there are any visible trends.
