It comes down to whether they believe their failures are a product of personal deficits which are beyond their control, or if the setbacks can be overcome with effort.

Success Becomes A Process

Success is determined by having a proper mindset. Successful people are usually more optimistic.

They invite and treat failure as learning experiences, and believe they can overcome them and do better in the future.

What success requires is high emotional intelligence, and it’s no surprise those who are proven successful have it in spades. Maintaining this mindset however, is a constant work in progress.

There are numerous challenges which will drag most people down, as they appear to be barriers they believe can’t be overcome.

For those who are successful, these challenges will never hold them back.

Who Cares What Others Think

Most will compare themselves to others, or care too much what people think of them. They believe they don’t measure up to the achievements of someone who’s successful.

They become defeated by taking the criticism of others to heart, regardless of what they’re doing.

Those who are successful don’t care what others think, as they realize it’s a waste of time.

Once successful people do something and feel good about it, it doesn’t matter what anyone’s opinions are. One thing for certain is you’re never as good or as bad, as what others think you are.

Those Who Are Toxic

It’s well known you’re the compilation of the five people you spend the most time with. It’s the brilliance or the dullness of those closest to you, which influences what you think and do.

So just as great people will help you in reaching your potential, it’s those toxic people who’ll drag you down if you let them.


It could be negativity, cruelty, laziness, or just crazy. What toxic people will do is create stress from their drama, and they should be avoided.

If you’re unhappy with your current situation in life, just take a look around you. It’s usually the people you surround yourself with who are the cause.

Fear Of Being Fearful

What the emotion which is fear does is it lingers in the dark corners of your imagination, telling you danger is real and near.

It’s a rush of adrenaline you feel that’s uncomfortable. Realize that fear is also a choice.

Those who are successful know this, so they stop fear in their tracks and will squash them before they take hold.

What the successful are addicted to, is the euphoric feeling they get once they conquer their fears. Never allow fear to hold your life hostage because you’re scared.

The worst thing that can happen to you is you’ll get paralyzed with fear, allowing yourself to suffocate while you’re still breathing.

Constant Negativity

Life for many isn’t fair, but we all live on the same plane of life, where the successful breathe and live in the same air we do. What the successful people do, is make their time count.

What these successful people never do, is waste time complaining about things they can’t control or things that should have been. They’re just grateful for everything they have.

They find the best possible economic solution to solve whatever problem they’re facing, and then move on.

Once they come across someone who’s negative, what they’ll do is avoid them by setting boundaries, by distancing themselves. It’s your choice to avoid them as well.

An effective way of shutting down those who are negative, is by asking them how they intend to fix the problem they’re complaining about.

They’ll either become quiet and go away, or will begin talking about something else.

Living In The Present

Similar to fear, the past and the future are emotional dumping grounds. There’s no amount of guilt that can alter the past, or no amount of anxiety that can change the future.

Those who are successful realize this, so they focus on the present moment. It’s impossible to reach your potential if your mind is elsewhere, unable to fully embrace the current.

To live in the moment, is accepting your past and making peace with it. The past will never leave you, but it can create the future.

Those who are successful will revisit their past only to see how far they’ve come.

To accept the uncertainty that is the future, never place any unnecessary expectations on yourself. Worrying as an emotion, is like paying a debt you don’t owe.

The World We Live In

All news is bad news. The endless threat of global war, domestic violence, failing economies, bankrupt companies, environmental disasters. It’s easy to assume we’re headed for disaster.

Maybe it is, but probably not. Successful people never worry of things they can’t control. All they focus on is what’s in their grasp, which is attention and effort.

Their attention is focused on what they’re grateful for, while looking at all the good that happens in their world.

What they focus on, is improving their lives and the world around them on a daily basis.
