The one trait all successful people have

Waking up in the early hours of the morning, working until the latest hours of the night... drinking 10 cups of coffee a day.

These might be the habits most people expect of those who are deemed successful, but one man believes that there's one trait that makes the difference: not being scared of being wrong.

Writing for Inc., Nicolas Cole explained that when looking at anyone who's made it to the top of their field, he noticed:

Successful people are 100 per cent confident that, whatever the challenge, they will be able to figure it out - and at the same time, they are 100 per cent willing to forgo everything they think they know and admit to knowing nothing.

It's certainly an interesting theory and one that ties into that famous quote attributed to Thomas Edison:

The worst thing is not to give it a go in the first place.
