This Egyptian Self-Help Author Can Show You 'The Six Traits of Greatness'

Sedky, a 27-year-old accountant based in Barcelona, habitually wrote in his personal journal, and when the Coronavirus lockdown gave him very little else to do, he took the opportunity to refine his writing into a proper book.

‘The Six Traits of Greatness’, written by Egyptian-Dutch Marwan Sedky is a how-to guide talking all things discipline, potential, and defeating controllable temptations. And the best way to do all that? By being your best self. It's just a matter of how you get there.


Sedky, a 27-year-old accountant based in Barcelona, habitually wrote in his personal journal, and when the Coronavirus lockdown gave him very little else to do, he took the opportunity to refine his writing into a proper book. Living through the financial crisis in Dubai, then the revolution in Egypt, and before relocating to his home country Holland, Sedky has trudged through a series of tumultuous events that he credits his current thought process to.


“I’ve always tried to keep a positive mindset," Sedky tells #CairoScene. "I’ve learned a lot over the years. It would be nice to give people some sense of hope or optimism. I’d like to encourage them to become the best version of themselves.”


That’s all greatness really is, Sedky thinks: being your best self. “People often feel as though being rich or famous is greatness. That’s not the definition that I believe in. We all have our own goals, so there can be no set meaning of greatness.”


There can be, however, a series of traits we need to adopt to reach it— the six traits of greatness. “Faith, self-confidence, commitment, self-discipline, perseverance, and consistency— everything I’ve learned from the people I admire."
