You may not be surprised to learn that there are certain characteristics of successful people which can be seen time and time again.

Success does not come from sitting down and being idle.

People who are successful in life make their own luck through hard work and ambition.

Take Leonardo DiCaprio as an example.

He could have stopped acting after his blockbuster releases "Romeo & Juliet" and the infamous "Titanic," but these films turned out to be just the beginning of his career;

he has been relentless in producing unforgettable films and raising his profile through environmental work.

So if you want to raise your game and build your own empire, make sure to incorporate these characteristics of successful people into your own lifestyle.

1. Be Ambitious

To make it big in life, you need to also dream big.

One of the characteristics of successful people is that they don’t restrict themselves with limits to what they can achieve.2

Ambition partners with creativity, with successful people choosing to think outside the box of what is possible.

2. Take a Leap of Faith

Once you have your ideas the next step is having the courage to follow through with them.

It's all very well saying that you want to get into shape, but do you really have the guts to sign yourself up to run a marathon?

Successful people often thrive on achieving their goals;

they feel the fear of the challenge and nether the less go after it.

They do not hesitate before taking a risk, but instead choose to take a leap of faith.

3. Face Your Fears

The familiar saying that "our only limits are the ones we place upon ourselves" could not be more apt.2

We all get scared sometimes, but having the courage to face our fears sets the weak from the chaff.3

One example of a common fear is public speaking.

Talking in front of people can seem both daunting and nerve wrecking, successful people acknowledge this fear, yet get up and give a speech anyway.

Having the confidence to stand out from the crowd will enable you achieve great things.
