Millennials are a generation of people blessed with creativity, originality and a massive amount of courage! I could stop right here because these 3 qualities alone are key to becoming successful in life… but there’s more! I’m sharing tips on how to build your best life by adopting these millennial traits.
I’m so happy to be a millennial. As much as this generation gets some backlash here and there, you can’t deny this generation are pretty much limitless in smashing barriers all over the world. We do thing’s differently, in a way the preceding generations would not approve of.
I took a look at the Forbes 30 under 30 lists analyzing the people on the list (note, there are other millennials above the age of 30 too). Studied what they all have in common and what makes them different from one another. I’ll break down my findings now.
1. Dare To Dream
What separates successful millennials from other people is their ability to dream bigger than their eyes can see. For them, no dream is too big to chase.
2. Be Fearless In Your Approach
They understand the relationship between risk and reward. They know when it’s time to pull all their resources together to fund a dream.
3. Don’t Take No For An Answer
When you tell them ‘no’, for them, it simply means to find another way. Their very determined nature doesn’t back down quite easily.
4. Think Outside Of The Box
Millennials are known to be very creative and original, so full of ideas. Being able to think outside of the box is a superpower for success and setting yourself apart.
5. Be Confident
Believing and being confident in yourself is paramount to achieving success as a millennial. People naturally gravitate towards real and confident people in this age of social media ‘pressure’.
6. Develop A Hunger For Learning
You need to be quick and eager to learn skills that you are genuinely interested in. Millennials aren’t famous for good attention span. Chose something you love and go after it. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself in and out of different ventures.
Building value-based relationships are key to achieving success for everyone. Not just for a millennial. Networking with the right people in the right places makes all the difference for a quicker climb on the career ladder.
