    One of the toughest things one has to do professionally is saying ‘no’. If you know how to respectfully say ‘no’ to the work you’re not supposed to do, you’re already ahead of many others in the race.

    4. They Are Humble, Not Pushovers

    Being humble is a sign you care about your co-workers and their work, but if you are a pushover, people often take undue advantage of you to get their work done, which comes in the way of you being successful.  

    5. They Believe It’s ‘All’ In The Details

    Whenever you talk to someone who is successful, you’ll notice them paying attention to tiny details, because they have the ability to see beyond the basic. This is one of the things that sets them apart from the rest.  

    6. They Are Patient & Impatient

    Now it might sound confusing but a successful entrepreneur is patient to let things fall in place, and at the same time they are impatient because they never want to settle or slow down.

    7. They Are Open-Minded

    If you want to be successful, you can’t live in your own utopian world. The more open-minded you are, the more you’ll be able to expand your horizons. It’s one of the basic traits, but most people who thrive to be successful often lack this particular one.

    8. They Are Always Curious

    Curiosity is what keeps you going. To be successful, you need to be on the go at all times. When you are curious, you question certain things in every way possible and find whether or not it’ll be useful to you.

    9. Failure Doesn’t Scare Them

    While failure doesn’t scare them, it does make them want to try harder the next time. When you try and start a new business, you need to know you will fail, again and again. The ones who stand up every time they fail are the ones who succeed.
