Yes, but it will take awhile.

You either got it or you don't. It's very hard to have these traits because you have to be somewhat of a psychopath. These traits can be attained but expect your entire personality to change. To be like those you mentioned, you will have to step on a lot of toes and necks.

I think it would be fulfilling.....do you really think the stuff about being psycopath-like is accurate?

Either you're born with it, or you're not.

Unless something happens to you and turns on the switch.

Yes, you have to be crazy obsessed with whatever you are trying to achieve.

A couple of summers ago, I was training at the gym on a daily basis, as I saw my body changing, I became obsessed with training. Waking up early, strict diet and all that crap that came with it. This was just training too.

I can only imagine those people you mentioned, they are the best at what they do and get paid to do it. I think they are little crazy to have that drive. Families, friends and co-workers would be affected. Whether that's moving up on the corporate ladder or to friendly competition, it brings out the bad in us.

You have the wrong mindset... I'm not gonna say that no one will be in your way, but the person most in your way is usually yourself.

Also, the hyper-drive to success comes with a price..... a lot of these people are so obsessed that they can't really have a normal life. Are you ready to make those type of sacrifices? Even at the risk of maybe not achieving that success when it is all said and done?

You have to be born with this attitude. You can't teach killer instinct.

Some guys are people pleaser soft Lebrons, others are clutch and driven Kobes. There are some midrange Carmelo Anthony types in between.

im only 20, so i cant really say from experience, but id imagine, having that psychotic drive of a jobs, or jordan, works well if you are gifted enough to be at the top, but if you arent, and you have to work beneath people, it will probably hurt you.

you need to be able to get along with people.

anyway, i doubt being a super successfull asshole is worth it. would you really be happy with all that stress in your life?

Be careful.

There's a reason why humility and kindness are virtues.

Because they help you survive.

A young hungry little guppie trying to be a piranha like myself will chomp up and send you right back into a spiral of depression if he meets your ilk.

2 points, one being a "killer" who is perceived as an asshole is unlikely to help you.

1. The people with this type of personality who are extremely successful, overall succeed in spite of their douchebaggery. they are extremely talented and others are forced to put up with them.

2. A lot of success is about ingratiating yourself to other people. Eg. Clients, co-workers, and bosses. Being personable and nice is not a disadvantage in the workplace.

being a self-centred asshole doesn't equal being a hard worker. You can be nice and a hard worker, and an asshole and lazy.

Also hard work is overrated.

I guess you'll have to be extra motivated.

Probably need to develop some skills that will make you stand out. Skills like being able to manipulate others, excellent communication, leadership skills, etc. Although I may be wrong about it but the person with the superior communication and manipulation skills will be more successful than a person who is a 2-3x more smarter than him but doesn't have those communication skills. Nothing better than that person with the orator skills that can have an entire room of people with their jaws dropped. Pretty much can do anything with it.

Probably need to stop being self-conscious about yourself and being more confident in yourself. I'd probably suggest getting out of your comfort zone to develop a don't break mentality? Like eating disgusting foods, living in a harsh conditions, taking cold showers in dead winter, etc..

But yeah I think if you develop the communication/manipulation skills you can achieve w/e goals you have.
