Remember along the way that many successful people can’t recognise or pinpoint what it was that put them on this path to achievement. So why do we succeed or fail? Decades of research on achievement suggests that successful people reach their goals not simply because of who they are, but more often because of what they do. This list was curated with the help of our founder, Aimee Marks in recalling her experiences in founding a company at the age of 18.

Top 10 things successful people do differently

1 // Passion (finding out what makes you happy and doing that)

2 // Ask questions, ask lots of questions

3 // Keep things simple

4 // The power of your network (and having good mentors to help you strengthen this)

5 // Have grit

6 // Being resourceful without resources

7 // What you think are your weaknesses are often your strengths

8 // Persistence and self-belief

9 // Never give up

10 // Just start and trust your gut
