Psychology of Success – The Skills You Need

Psychology of Success – Skills You Need

To be truly successful, you need to have a variety of skills. 

In the majority of cases, the skills required are developed during childhood and school. Theoretically, they should be programmed into the mind from a very early age. Obviously, if you happen to be one of those lucky enough to have had this programming then its likely you’ll be somewhat ahead of the game. 

Of course, nobody’s perfect – there’s always something everyone can improve on (even if you are top of your game.) It always helps to be able to brush up on certain skills to keep yourself ahead. Also (and this probably applies to the vast majority of us, including yours truly), you will probably need something to guide you as to what skills you actually need to get on in life.The question is, where’s the best place to find this guidance? 

This is where that wonderful thing called the internet comes in.

I was fortunate enough to find this website the other day whilst working on my Level 2 Customer Service course online. (One of the great things about this course being web-based is that it provides some very useful links for further study. This was one of the links that came up.)

It’s called Skills You Need.

The focus of the website is to act as a hub for all the sort of skills you require in life. The areas covered by the site include such things as life skills, social skills, communication skills, presentation skills etc. There’s a lot of essential skill coverage as well, such as numeracy and literacy. In fact, it covers all the sort of things you’d need in order to get on in work, life, education etc.

What’s the relevance to the psychology of success?

Well, it should be fairly obvious that many of the skill sets the website informs about are essential to achieving success across a whole variety of fields. I suppose this goes without saying. What it’s trying to effectively promote is the pursuit of excellence via the development of skills. 

However, there are some areas it discusses which are particularly pertinent to the psychology of success. For instance, there is a whole succession dedicated to charisma. Charisma is certainly seen as a significant factor when aiming to be successful and influence others. In the same vein, the site covers other skills such as negotiation and leadership which are also quite pertinent to the pursuit of success.

In all honesty, there’s a lot of extremely useful information on this website which can guide you towards the sort of skill set you might need to achieve success. Its not just about telling, there’s a lot of showing as well due to the proliferate number of ‘how to’ articles linked to the main headings within the website. For instance, this article shows you how to write a presentation

All in all, there’s a lot of useful stuff in this website which I’ll certainly be aiming to make use of myself.

It’s a great free resource worth checking out!
