To get to the top of the ladder, there are various qualities you need to make sure that you have.

While success isn't always a guarantee, having these traits or habits goes a long way in ensuring that you increase your odds of succeeding.

Here are 7 qualities you should have if you want to be successful.

1. Think Big

Always perform your duties with the end in mind and use your imagination to do it. While you're at it, envision a much grander quality of life and skills for yourself.

2. Sacrifice

You have to be willing to give up the things you like for the things you need. You'll have to be willing to sacrifice those extra hours of sleep to reach those goals you set for yourself.

3. Diligence

Going at your dream without any self-afforded breaks with determination and discipline will get you that much closer to achieving your goal.

4. Patience

You need to have the patience of a Job. Dreams don't come true overnight. And even if it happened, it would still take time to develop from where you are and go further.

5. Friendliness

You don't need to be loud and extroverted. But you need to be kind to others and open to grasping opportunities that come in the form of people. Network with people who may or may not be able to help you.

6. Bravery

Take risks.

7. Humility

Always be willing to learn and ask for help from your superiors.
