Higher and higher and further. To climb the highest peak is the dream of many mountaineers. And not only mountaineers dream of it. The peak of professional success can be just as difficult to climb as the highest mountain.
Character traits for a successful business
Perseverance, continuity and willpower are required both for mountaineering and for building a successful business. It is also necessary to have the right knowledge to help the mountaineer position and prepare the equipment properly before going on a long tour. Here, too, there are some parallel ones to the successful business development. Without the right tools, the businessman in the 21st century will hardly be able to master the steep ascent.
Skills instead of expertise
It is not just a matter of specialist knowledge here, but rather of skills and abilities that must work skilfully in practice. These include, among other things, an eloquent language that can be skillfully adapted to any situation and person, a serious appearance that shines through business clothing, handkerchiefs, etc. and the ability to have a clear and unambiguous eye for the essential things. These attributes are decisive for business success.
The right attributes for mountaineering
Also in mountaineering a clear view for the right grips and its surroundings is essential to avoid quickly landing back on the ground. It has to be shined with the eloquent expression of one’s own body by adapting one’s physical movements to the rock formations and the environment. Only in this way can the mountaineer be successful and efficient in his actions.
The mountain will never adapt to the climber, he must adapt to the mountain.
It is similar in business. The successful businessman has to adapt to his environment both inside. His mindset, as well as outside, his appearance in order to be successful.
