Super Successful individuals live what others would deem ‘a dream life’. These individuals have very different personalities to those who live ‘ordinary lives’. Ordinary people who are content to cruise through life often without direction or goals and whom appear completely oblivious to new opportunities.
Successful people operate on a completely different playing field to others which is how they create the wealth, power and rewards that others are so keen to emulate and enjoy.
Super successful, wealthy individuals are often alluring, they know exactly what they want, and are laser focused on their goals despite any challenges they experience in other areas of their life. These individuals have high standards for others and are determined to get what they want at any cost, never allowing their emotions to dictate their behaviour.
In order for you to play a different game and achieve serious life changing results, you need to change the way you behave on a daily basis.
Here are the 6 key traits of the Super Successful who live a life others only dream of:
They are massively determined to achieve their goals and no one or nothing stands in their way. Their laser focus ensures their goals will be achieved despite any obstacles that arise. These individuals understand how to read people like a book as they understand human behaviour and body language like nobody else.
Successful individuals surround themselves with those individuals who can help them achieve their goals and introduce them to other people in their network who can do the same.
“Success always necessitates a degree of ruthlessness. Given the choice of friendship or success, I’d probably choose success.” – Sting
2. Research People Carefully
For any dealing you have with a super successful person, be prepared to be investigated. As they deal with all walks of life from shady to professional individuals. They have their guard up continually and research everyone they become involved with, irrespective of whether they are a client, business associate or a potential partner. They will do google searches and look to obtain as much information as possible about the person without their knowledge.
3. Live In Their Own Universe
The super successful refuse to live in any one else’s world and love to control every aspect of their life. Those closest to them fit into their life not the other way around. Although, very trusting and generous, you will quickly learn that compromise and emotions rarely exist and they can cut you out of their life just as quickly as you came into their life.
They often have difficulty empathising as their overall preference is to avoid situations where emotions are spoken about or dealt with. Generating wealth and getting what they want is all that matters, people are viewed simply as resources to help them achieve a goal.

4. Avid Problem-Solvers
Most people view these individuals with rose coloured glasses as they act like everyone’s best friend, solving everyone’s problems is what they love to do and others feel indebted to them for listening to their problems and helping them resolve their issues or act as a sounding board.
They thrive on challenges and spend everyday solving business and personal problems for others. That said, they are brilliant at remaining ‘detached’ from all situations.
5. Addicted to being Productive
These individuals speed through life and live life to the full. They are addicted to being productive and using their time wisely. In fact, they often despise too much down time or feeling any ‘feelings’ whatsoever. As an example, a friend of mine had more energy than a 20 year old and did not stop except to sleep. They have a zest for life that is unparalleled.
They truly believe they are invincible, living their life like they drive their cars. Literally speeding through life in their car driving at speeds of 160 to 180 kilometres per hour. It is as though the rules within society don’t exist for them. People admire and adore these individuals for they produce results and are serious over achievers.
“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.” – Henry David Thoreau
6. Attitude of Superiority
As they live in their own world and have significant power and wealth, they have an air of superiority. They set high standards for themselves and refuse to accept anything less. As an example: One place you will never find these individuals is travelling on public transport. as they consider this an option for ‘ordinary’ people. Their public persona is exceptionally important, they aim to look ‘good’ in the eyes of others; by doing and saying the ‘right’ things.
In order for you to become a super successful individual, you must be prepared to make significant changes to the way you think and behave right now to transform into a different person. To lift your game and play at a different level, there are massive changes an individual has to be committed to producing, which includes the above 6 traits along with learning the art of detachment and not allowing your emotions to dictate your behaviour in order to live your dream life.
