In my first episode or part in this inspirational high achievers series, I did mention that every known achiever on earth are great men and women who have identified what it takes to go the extra mile. I also said that having the right mindset is very key to making a lasting impact in every field of endeavour which ultimately involves a great sense of desire, Courage and high level of knowledge and determination to scale.
In this part 2, i would be highlighting just a few things you must know to enter this league of persons.
1. Building up your knowledge base.
Nothing beats a highly skilled and knowledgeable person. Knowledge they say is power. Every high achiever that I know have mastered these secrets; an insatiable thirst for knowledge. They are always out seeking out learning opportunities throughout their careers in other to hone their skills and add to their arsenal of leadership tools. They don’t shy away from challenges due to little information, but Instead, take proactive steps to educate themselves or seek out people with the knowledge they need to confront a new task. You want to be a super achiever, look out for every important learning opportunities to brush up your skills at all times.
2. Delegation to the right persons.
We live in a world where a lot of attention is needed in virtually every aspects of our lives. In other to be afloat, all greatest achievers that I have had the privilege to study have mastery of how and what to delegate and to whom. Note that it is in a high achiever’s nature to want to do everything alone, but the paradox that exists is that in order to become a high achiever it’s often necessary to delegate to others of which almost all who did have ran with multiple successes. The most successful people surround themselves with highly motivated team which they can trust to carry out their vision and produce top quality results and this is where the dichotomy between the high achievers and not too great achievers exists.
3. Live and breath persistency
There is this famous post credited to one of the most celebrated basketball player Michael Jordan. He said and I quote;
“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
Dont get it wrong, the cloud is not always very clear for all great achievers that I know. Infact all known achievers I have researched about have tasted one defeat or another. But in All, I have observed they are relentless in their pursuits of greatness. Whether it’s meeting a deadline, exceeding a quota, or starting a business, the defining characteristic that all but ensure their success is persistence. Failure is expected and often seen as a valuable learning opportunity that only strengthens their resolve to come out on top.
In All, they always keep an eye on the ball and remained focused even in the face of doubt. Plenty people are eager to attain these heights, but the major challenges is keeping up and stepping up to the mastery that it demands. So we are here to guide you along the way to achieving this level of greatness.
