Hon­esty

Hon­esty is the best pol­icy. It has kept me in good stead, be it in my re­la­tion­ships with my spouse, kids, fam­ily, work­place, busi­ness part­ners or peers. Once trust is gained then life’s bat­tle is won. For me this is one virtue I look for in a com­pan­ion, friend and re­la­tions. Sand­hya Shetty

STAY­ING HUM­BLE

The most im­por­tant qual­ity a per­son should pos­sess is hu­mil­ity. I find it fas­ci­nat­ing when an in­di­vid­ual has set them­selves a bench­mark, hav­ing achieved so much in their lives, yet they never have a sense of en­ti­tle­ment. Gay­a­tri Ram­chan­dran

Self re­spect

Self re­spect is the most im­por­tant qual­ity one should pos­sess. It is the ba­sis of many qual­i­ties we should pos­sess. Self re­spect helps you to not only re­spect your­self but also oth­ers. Niveditha Su­nil

Em­pa­thy

Em­pa­thy. When you place your­self in some­one else’s shoes, you are open­ing up your­self to new and dif­fer­ent opin­ions, thoughts and ideas, which help you com­pare your thought process with that of an­other’s and take right de­ci­sions both per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally. Ru­biya Gazi

AC­CEP­TANCE

It’s only those who ac­cept life’s ob­sta­cles who suc­ceed. Ac­cep­tance will heal ev­ery­thing and this is key to hap­pi­ness. Ac­cep­tance does not mean you agree, ap­pre­ci­ate or even like what hap­pened. It means tak­ing life easy and be­liev­ing that re­gard­less of what hap­pened, one day you’ll suc­ceed.

NO VAN­ITY

The beauty of be­ing a hu­man be­ing is be­ing hum­ble. Lack of pride and van­ity can make a per­son be more gen­er­ous in his thought process and re­spond to sit­u­a­tions bet­ter. Shiny Dav­i­son

RIGHT AT­TI­TUDE

The es­sen­tial qual­ity one should pos­sess is the abil­ity to de­velop the right at­ti­tude to­wards life. Ac­cept­ing oth­ers the way they are, hav­ing a growth mind­set and be­ing re­silient will def­i­nitely en­able one to be a suc­cess­ful hu­man and an eter­nal op­ti­mist, equipped to nav­i­gate life with strong will and hu­mil­ity. Su­san Ru­bin Vargh­ese

IN­TEGRITY

Be­ing hon­est means telling the truth and be­ing straight­for­ward and open with peo­ple. Peo­ple with per­sonal in­tegrity al­ways try to do the right thing, re­gard­less of whether any­one would ever know what they’ve done. They have a strong moral com­pass. Hon­esty and in­tegrity will en­gen­der trust in oth­ers and al­ways hold you in high es­teem. Zoya Asma Khan

TRUST

Strong re­la­tion­ships are built on trust. I be­lieve that re­spect and trust are the qual­i­ties a per­son should pos­sess. Trust is elicited by hon­esty, re­spect and in­tegrity, be­ing con­sid­er­ate, not threat­en­ing or hurt­ing any­one be­cause where there is re­spect there is suc­cess.

If some­one doesn’t value you as much as you value him or her, don’t waste more en­ergy on the re­la­tion­ship. Sapna Tal­reja

Self-con­fi­dence

Self con­fi­dence is the most im­por­tant qual­ity. If you have trust in your­self, you are al­ready closer to suc­cess as this helps you to start things. If you lack this qual­ity you can­not ex­pect oth­ers to have con­fi­dence in your ca­pa­bil­i­ties. Shra­va­nee Kale

Be grate­ful

Em­pa­thy and grate­ful­ness are the se­cret in­gre­di­ents for a peace­ful life. Em­pa­thy will help you un­der­stand and stay calm when deal­ing with peo­ple. Grate­ful­ness will help you to en­joy every mo­ment of your life. Mythili Sid­dique

Courage

Two qual­i­ties are must for hu­mans – courage to cre­ate the life you deep in­side know you de­serve to live, and de­tach­ment — to let go of things that no longer serve you. The abil­ity to let go of your at­tach­ment to lim­i­ta­tions, fears, doubts and in­se­cu­ri­ties is im­por­tant. An­jali Ravin­dran
