What do people like Oprah Winfrey, Howard Schultz, and Eleanor Roosevelt have in common that makes them super achievers? In a study of 400 super achievers, 75 percent of them had experienced some form of extreme childhood trauma. At a very young age these people had to learn extreme resilience because they were constantly faced with very difficult situations. As a result, they were able to use that to then catapult them to a place where they achieve greatness. As a super achiever myself, I would never wish trauma for any person! With that said, below are three commonalities that exist among people who have experienced extreme trauma and then became super achievers.
3 Things Super Achievers Have in Common
- Super achievers know the fighter within them and often use it to achieve their goals.
- Super achievers are not afraid of facing extreme difficulty. They’ve faced the worst and survived so they’re not afraid to take on new obstacles.
- Super achievers will always surround themselves with other super achievers because they know that there is power within community.
