How To Be An Incredibly Exceptional Human Being Poised For Success.

Marc and Angel Hack Life, published an amazing post about how to impress people by being an exceptional human being. Its an incredible read I’ve quoted below. Take it into your psyche and make your life more exceptional to you and the people you come in contact with. We’re always “selling” ourselves to others, this really hones it down to get to your core being and sell YOU. People buy YOU.

I adopted many of these qualities when I was younger because I envisioned they would be keys to being a leader. Early on with one of my new companies, we were asking new clients to switch their business to our “newbie” business. It was hard. I went out personally and met with them, sometimes for hours. The hard question would come: “what if you guys fail?” In the end they bought ME and believed in ME enough to deliver based on my personality. Without my character that company would’ve never launched.

Years ago I heard Tony Robbins talk about how he met many wealthy people in terms of property, that were completely unhappy with themselves. If you are failing in life, do an internal inventory and use these principles. They should be your CORE. I’ve just copied the bullet points check out his post link below for descriptions. What most people don’t get is that these are the core elements to achieving LONG term success.

Far more often than any of us like to admit, our actions are driven by an inner desire to impress other people. This desire is often reflected in the brand name products we use, the bars and restaurants we frequent, the houses and cars we buy and the careers we choose.

But are name brand products, fancy bars, houses and cars really that impressive? What about a person who holds an elite position in a career field they dislike? Some of these things might capture our attention for a minute or two, but they won’t hold it for long.

Why? Because tangible possessions are not as impressive as intangible qualities.

Consider the following questions:

He drives a Porsche, but can he truly afford the car payment?
He owns a big house, but is it a loving household?
He makes a lot of money, but does he enjoy what he does for a living?
You get the idea. Whenever the answer to questions like these is ‘no,’ the subject who initially appeared to be impressive no longer does.

Now take a moment and imagine a person who loves what he does for a living, smiles frequently and bleeds passion in every breath he takes. Would he impress you? Would it matter that he wasn’t a millionaire?
