What is the one skill all successful people possess? it certainly isn’t the ability to invent things, or communication skills or technical skills. Successful people come in all shapes and sizes.
Some of them are highly technical and some aren’t. Some of them have a knack for business and other successful don’t. That’s okay! They can always hire people who know more about business than they do.
The one skill all successful people possess is the ability to learn from their mistakes. It is not really an ability — it is a willingness. People who achieve their dreams make way more mistakes than most people do, because they try way more things than most people do. They are always experimenting. They are always moving forward.
If something they try doesn’t work out for them, they say “Oh well—great learning!” and they try something else.
People who are not successful either don’t try new things, or they try them but they get frustrated and stop trying when their early efforts don’t work out. They blame other people for slowing them down. Other peple cannot slow you down unless you let them.
