We are now moving into Part 6 of this success series. You may like to read Part 5 here if you have not read it. You will find an in-depth writing about strength and weakness.
In Part 6, you will learn of something that you may not come across on successful people. At least not many success books will mention it. My frequent hanging around these highly successful friends provided me the insight of the sixth characteristic of highly successful people. Continue reading
We are half way through this series, if you have not read the previous version, here you can start from Part 1, or you can read Part 4 here. It doesn’t matter which Part you start reading from, as long as you are getting value from it.

Challenging, isn’t it?
