It comes down to whether they believe that their failures is 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 mindset. Successful people are usually more optimistic, as they’ll invite and treat failure as learning experiences, and believe that they can learn and then do better in the future.
So success requires emotional intelligence, and it’s no surprise that those who are proven successful have all tested to have high EQs. Maintaining this success mindset however, can be a work in progress.
There are constant challenges which will drag most people down, as they appear to be barriers that they think can’t be overcome. For those who are accomplished, these challenges don’t hold them back.
Who Cares What Others Think
Most will compare themselves with others, or care what others think of them, that they don’t measure up to the achievements of someone who’s successful.
They’re defeated by taking the criticism of others to heart, this regardless of what they think or are doing. Your self-worth should come from within. Those who are successful don’t care, as they realize what others think is a waste of time.
Once successful people do something and feel good about it, then it doesn’t matter what anyone’s opinions are. One thing for certain is that you’re never as good or as bad as what others think of you.
Those Who Are Toxic
It’s well known that you’re the compilation of the five people that you spend the most time with. That it’s the brilliance or the dullness of those around 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.
So if you’re unhappy with your current station in life, then just take a look around you. It’s usually the people that you surround yourself with who are the cause. So hang with the right people.
Fear Of Being Fearful
What fear the emotion does is it lingers in the dark of your imagination, that danger is real and near. It’s a rush of adrenaline that’s uncomfortable. But realize that fear is also a choice.
Those who are successful know this, so they stop fear in their tracks and squashes them. What the successful are addicted to is the euphoric feeling they get once they conquer their fears.
Don’t 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 alive.
Life at times 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 don’t do is waste time complaining about things they can’t control or should have been, they’re just grateful for everything they have. They find the best economic solution possible to solve the problem, and then move on.
Once they come across someone who’s negative, what they’ll do is avoid them by setting boundaries, this 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 or 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 that you don’t owe.
The World We Live In
All news is bad, the endless cycle of war, violence, failing economies, bankrupt companies, environmental disasters. It’s easy to assume we’re headed for disaster.
Maybe it is but who cares. Successful people never worry of these things which 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. They focus on improving their lives and the world around them on a daily basis.
