Whether you are a recruiter, looking for a salaried job, a freelancer, an entrepreneur or even a startup CEO, you should pay particular attention to the 10 personality traits that will make the difference to succeed in life.

Compassion
Compassion represents an individual’s ability to perceive or feel the suffering of those around him or her. Better still, people with this developed personality trait will tend to want to help people who are suffering to solve their problems.
    In a team, it is essential to have people who are compassionate.
This will allow him to really listen to others and above all to want to help them feel better. The result will be people who are happier and more fulfilled in their work, which will benefit the company as a whole.

Sympathy
Behind the sympathy lies the idea of participation or communication. A really friendly person will be essential in a company because they will have a superior ability to communicate naturally.
    A friendly person will promote the bond in a company.
It is a real asset for a company to have really friendly employees because it can only strengthen team cohesion. A more cohesive team always gives better results under pressure.

Empathy
Empathy is the key feeling that allows an individual to put himself in someone else’s shoes. In concrete terms, empathetic people will be able to recognize and understand the feelings and emotions of those around them better than anyone else.
    In life, empathy is essential to defuse and resolve conflicts.
An angry person who is ready to enter a conflict will be able to come down more easily and calm down when faced with a person who can capture his or her emotions and feelings.

Kindness
Kind people are rare in this world. I mean the really kind people here, those who do things for you without expecting something in return.
    A kind person is selfless.
This type of person engages in altruistic behaviour by seeking to help others while taking into account their sensitivity so that they are never pressured or offended.

Gratitude
No one succeeds alone in life. This is a fundamental truth that you must never forget. On a daily basis, a multitude of small actions boost you but you may not realize it.
    Saying thank you is essential in life.
It doesn’t sound like a lot, but in reality, it can make all the difference to the person who helped you. Also, never forget these people. The day they need you, you must be there for them.

Humility
Humility is a personality trait that is acquired over time. It’s not something innate in humans. As you go through your life, you will develop this trait and some will reach a higher level than others simply.
    By being truly aware of your limitations, you will be able to be humble enough to be in lifelong learning.
You can learn from everyone, but to do so you need to adopt the right approach: that of the student facing the teacher.
You may be a renowned university professor with 30 years of experience but you can still learn from one
You could never become a great leader without real humility.

Patience
You know what is often said:
    “Rome wasn’t built in a day.”
Well, it’s true!
In fact, you must be patient because life is a marathon and not a sprint. Having high goals is excellent but you really must give yourself time to achieve them.
    Stay calm as you progress towards success.
Finally, it is very often the case that patients are the most persistent. However, you will need it in life to achieve great things!

Self-Awareness
Self-awareness is also an important personality trait because it defines how individuals will perceive themselves.
    With a truly developed self-awareness, you will know what your strengths and weaknesses really are.
This will make it easier for you to ask for help when it is needed. You will also be able to offer your help to others when it concerns areas that you are perfectly familiar with.
Finally, if you fail, you will be better able to bounce back because you know what you are worth and you will not give in to the temptation to complain or lower yourself unnecessarily. Indeed, everyone fails, but the most important thing is to continue your efforts by doing better the next time.

Ability To Rise Up
When you are working on many projects at the same time, it is easy to lose sight of the essential points in life. Some people are unable to gain enough height when faced with problems or situations of high stress.
    The inability to rise up in life will inevitably reduce your ability to act by blocking you in complex situations.
People who have the ability to rise up will be able to get out of the fray and see problems from a different angle, which will often lead to new solutions and ultimately to their solution.

Sincerity
More than anything in life, you have to be sincere. I can only advise you too much to be sincere with yourself but also, and above all, with others.
    Be true and everything will be fine.
This will allow people around you to know that they can really count on you because you are a reliable person. In addition, it will also ensure that you never fall into the role of the impostor by playing the role of someone you are not. This way, you can have a truly fulfilling life.

Conclusion
Skills are important for success in life. Nevertheless, the 10 personality traits I have detailed in this article are often even more important for success. Why? Quite simply because these personality traits will allow you to adapt to all situations and know how to work effectively with others.
However, to succeed in great things, you will necessarily have to collaborate with other people but also put yourself in the shoes of others to capture the needs of your future customers, for example.
In the future, I think that these personality traits will even be put even more prominently in resumes to be placed before skills or even diplomas. The hardest thing left to do is to detect these personality traits as early as possible in the people with whom you could potentially work.
