I recently read a thread about habits where the person who posted asks what habit changed your life, so I thought it would be a good idea to post this topic on attributes/behaviors.

What single attribute/trait has made the greatest impact on your life (personally and/or professionally)?

As a follow up question, or to give you more inspiration for the question above, what one behavior would you want your children to acquire and instill within their core philosophy of life as they reach adulthood?

For me, I believe persistency has been my greatest attribute.

It doesn't matter what adversity I've faced throughout my life (there have definitely been a handful of bumps in the road). I've always possessed a drive and determination to pick up the pieces and keep moving forward with full steam.

This has paid off for me both personally and professionally, and has allowed me to learn, improve and become that much better than I ever was prior.

The consistency of being persistent, keeping your head up and enduring and simply being a survivor is in my opinion one of the greatest attributes that one could ever possess. I'd definitely look to instill that level of tenacity within my children one day!

Excited to hear everyone else's input!

Personally I'd say experimentation, being curious about all things so that you can discover new opportunities. I believe that in order to become successful you have to have vision for what will grow into the future. For instance: youtube. If people would've known how big it would become, they'd have started to work on their content years ago. Same thing with bitcoin and instagram celebrities.

I discovered some great opportunities that made me quite a lot of money just because I was curious and was willing to take a chance for experimenting with what could explode. Like you said, being persistent is also essential for extracting the juice out of all the opportunities around us.

I think Growth Mindset as described by Carol Dweck. Perhaps fundamental to both persistence and experimentation as you would do neither if you had a static mindset?
