DNA of Top Achievers

dnaIn an article written by Chris Widener titled the DNA of Top Achievers,  Chris says that Top Achievers would have several important genes including:

  • A predisposition to setting high, lofty goals
  • An ability to focus intently upon reaching their desired destination
  • An ability to focus intently upon reaching their desired destination
  • The willingness to personally sacrifice in order to get to their goal
  • A predisposition to tenacity
  • The ability to see available resources and to use them accordingly
  • A desire to help others achieve more for themselves as well

It’s a great article to check out to see if you are on the right track and if not, it can give you some things to work on. I am particularly interested in the third bulleted item, the ability to focus intently. I have been reading a lot of Cal Newport’s work lately and I have learned a lot about eliminating distractions and it is one of the areas I am working on personally in 2018.  What about you? What’s in your DNA?
