10 Things That Require Zero Talent

On my other blog, I wrote about things schools should be teaching instead of focusing on subject matter. Typically they teach obedience. But they could be teaching creativity, thinking, communication, and the like and then apply to subject matter.

This list was floating around LinkedIn. I thought it was worth sharing. These are personal characteristics that require no talent. No matter what job or profession someone pursues, these characteristics will carry you to success. Not necessarily riches, but definitely to a successful life.

Most of these characteristics are things I talk about when I’m training soccer referees. These are relevant to anything. People who embody these are people you love being around.

  1. Being on time
  2. Work Ethic
  3. Effort
  4. Energy
  5. Body Language
  6. Passion
  7. Doing Extra
  8. Being Prepared
  9. Being Coachable
  10. Attitude
