TED Ed: 8 Traits of Successful People

This entertaining 7-minute video introduces you to the work of researcher Richard St. John who spent 10 years talking to 500 successful people about what made them successful, in dozens of fields.

To summarize, the eight traits are:

  1. Passion: Love what you do
  2. Work hard
  3. Focus on one thing, not everything
  4. Push yourself
  5. Come up with good ideas
  6. Keep improving
  7. Serve others
  8. Persist, because there’s no overnight success

This one is for you.
