Mindvalley’s Top 5 Traits Of An Extraordinary Human Being


The best traits of the world’s most extraordinary people shine through in 5 tell-tale signs. How many of these qualities do you already have? And can you spot them in your influencers?

She was right.

“Beautiful people do not just happen.”

This infamous quote by psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross carries undeniable truth all of us can relate to. 

The most extraordinary human beings out there are those that, through adversity and rigorous character building, have become extraordinary by design

In this article, you’ll discover the five best traits of extraordinary people and how to spot them in those around you. 

5. They Embrace Growth & Development

Extraordinary people are constantly bettering themselves. They know their strengths as well as the areas they’d like to develop and invest heavily in their personal growth

Vishen, founder and CEO of Mindvalley, believes that the reason extraordinary people put their personal growth first is that they understand two things.

First, they understand that growth is the basic meaning of life (if you’re not growing, you’re dying). And second, they know that the more deeply committed they are to their own evolution, the better they can serve humanity.

This is what makes this one of the best traits an extraordinary human can have.

4. They Practice Gratitude

Extraordinary people practice gratitude. Why? Because they know that by focusing on what they already have as opposed to what they don’t, they rewire the mind for abundance and success. 

Building a gratitude practice is, without a shadow of a doubt, the fastest and most efficient way to tune into true happiness, and therefore, start leading an extraordinary life. This is also the best trait to have in terms of influencing the law of attraction.  

3. They Forgive And Forget 

Extraordinary people forgive quickly. That’s because forgiveness isn’t about letting our enemies off the hook, rather, it’s about finally setting ourselves free and setting ourselves up for a life of success. 

When extraordinary people forgive, they quickly remove huge rocks of resentment from their backpacks so they can hike into the sunset with a much lighter load. And they’re able to do this because they’ve mastered the art of compassion for themselves and others. This makes forgiveness one of the best traits to have as part of an extraordinary person’s personality. 

2. They Have Goals & Action Plans

Extraordinary people have a plan for where they want their lives to go. They’re grateful for what they have as well as having lofty and exciting goals.  

They know that they can create an extraordinary life for themselves in all aspects, and fully believe in the power of the mind to make it happen. Extraordinary people don’t just ‘go with the flow’ like a piece of driftwood in the ocean; rather, they navigate the seas of possibilities with purpose. It’s the best trait to have in terms of high achievement.

1. They Give & Receive Love

Extraordinary people are full of love. The Beatles said it best — love really is all we need, and without it, leading a fulfilling life is impossible. We’re social creatures, and there’s nothing that supports a thriving human being more than connection and belonging. 

But extraordinary people don’t just give love to others, they receive it gracefully too. They fill the cups of others as well as allowing others to fill theirs. Moreover, they have learned how to love the most important person in the world themselves

They know that self-love is just as important, if not more so than any other variation of love.
