Secrets of Success

Successful learners…Confident individuals…Caring friends…Responsible citizens
The 8 Characteristics of Successful People: 
Try new things Work hard Concentrate Push themselves
Imagine Improve Understand others Do not give up
  1. They try new things and actively look for opportunities to learn.
  2. They work hard. There are no short cuts to getting really good at anything. Success is all about (deep, purposeful) practice and hard work.
  3. They are able to concentrate. They can stay focussed and avoid distractions.
  4. They can push themselves – when they don’t feel like doing things, when they feel shy, when they think they might fail and when their friends are trying to stop them doing what they want to do or what they know they should do.
  5. They imagine – to be successful we need to keep having ideas.
  6. They improve – successful people always try to make things better. They know that there is always room for improvement. Often they make lots of small improvements – tweaking, refining and taking small steps to greatness.
  7. They understand others. Successful people respect others and try to be useful to others.
  8. They do not give up! Successful people have setbacks, failures, criticism and rejection but they find a way round these problems and bounce back.

"We are all different, there is no such thing as a standard or run-of-the-mill human being, but we share the same human spirit. What is important is that we have the ability to create… This creativity can take many forms, from physical achievement to theoretical physics… However difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at.…Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see. Be curious.”
