Some traits might seem to be fundamental considering certain occupation, but it can be said that there are certain traits which are indispensable to success irrespective of the domain. But one quality which all the successful leaders have is Perseverance.
Perseverance can be defined as the determination and passion to achieve the set goals. Ian H Robertson, author of the famous book, The Winner Effect: The Neuroscience of Success and Failure says, “The main ingredient of success is having success. The winner effect is a phenomenon that occurs across species, whereby if someone wins a contest against weaker opponent, they are more likely to win a subsequent contest against a tougher opponent.”

According to him, every person has either one or two qualities they are wired for, but the hard part is to have the confidence to go after it.
He quotes, “Creating opportunities means looking where others are not.”
