Do you want to be successful? I would say every individual who idolizes successful people want to be like them. But what makes them a master achiever?
If you want to find success in your life, it’s important to understand what successful people “don’t do”
There are a lot of things which successful people might not be doing, that differentiates us from them. But here, I would define 5 things that successful people do not do.
Successful people do not blame other people, there are a majority of people on the planet who blame others for not achieving their goals, and that’s the reason why they remain stuck. There are people who blame their parents, society for their upbringing. I know people who are going through a lot of problems, but they still manage to get to the top. The moment you take control of your own life and, not blame other people, that’s the moment your life will change.
Successful people do not resist change, change is everything when you want to achieve success. Successful people believe that life is full of changes, they handle the uncertainty. It goes as Level of success = amount of uncertainty.
Successful people don’t let fear stop them from taking action, successful people work to face the fears that hold most people back. I would say make a habit of doing things that you fear. So, face your fear. You should listen to the voice in you saying, “you can do it” and “you must do it”, by grabbing all the opportunities. Successful people, just take action, they do not let their fear stop them.
Successful people are not afraid to ask for help, they realize that mentor is everything when it comes to success. I am giving an example of Steve Jobs, who had around 10 mentors making him so successful with his brand Apple. Successful people realize that if they want to get something big, they need a mentor to guide them. As a proverb says, “to know the road ahead, ask those that are coming back”.
Successful people do not wait for the perfect moment to take action, successful people believe that, there is never going to be a perfect moment to take action, and they have to take it now to achieve success. They categorize it this way, Ready, Fire, and Aim. A question I would ask to all of you is, are you waiting for the perfect moment to pull the trigger? The longer you keep waiting, you are going to remain stuck. Never wait for the perfect moment, this is the right time. Live your dreams, and take actions right now.
Verdict – Successful people do not define success with money, they do not set unrealistic goals. They do not get always what they want. They work smarter not harder.
