There are a platteAttachment-1 (4)r full of things that make up those that are successful achievers, these are 5 that I have most often witnessed and read about. There is definitely something to percentages. If something occurs more often than others, than it’s worth taking notice-it’s worth remembering…it’s worth asking yourself if you have these qualities. If you don’t have them, then just see it as room for you to improve. BTW, they’re not in any special order.

Here we go:

Pay Attention: Do you pay attention to what is going on in your life? Do you know what is working and what isn’t? I’m not talking about your dishwasher or the fact that your towels may be worn; I’m talking about the fact that something or someone at your job is wrong and you’re not dealing with it. Or maybe it’s your personal relationship, or any other thing that is going on in your life that you would prefer was different. Are you more like the kind of person that thinks “if you ignore it, it will go away”? Successful people know that isn’t true. You have to pay attention to what is or isn’t going on around you, so you can make it the way you want it to be for you to be able to move forward.

Move On: How much of your time do you spend thinking about things that haven’t worked out. Do you feel like you’ve given them the attention they deserve, but they just haven’t worked out? Some things can’t be changed. Move on. That’s what successful people do; they don’t wallow in resentment because those they work with have been able to work out what they haven’t, or others have moved ahead as they were dealing with things that ended up going nowhere. They don’t get lost in envy because that saps them of their energy. They move on.

Remain Positive: Can’t say this enough. It’s important to remain positive. You can see things as though the glass is half full or half empty. Why not chose the later? Your positive mood can change your energy level and how you get through your day. The most successful people chose to remain positive even in the worse of times. How positive are you?

Be Confident: If you believe in yourself, there is no person or situation that will shake that. A tree is only as strong as its roots. Often those that are insecure and lack self-confidence are the ones that will try and make others feel small. You want to be around successful people because they believe in themselves. These people are not scared to share knowledge. It’s those people that attract people like each other and grow successful businesses.

Yearn: Those that are successful want to achieve that success really, really badly. They have to know what it is they want to create and plan how to get there…yes the plan can change along the way, but they have a plan to get to where they’re going. Those that are successful have to have the ability to stick to it when things are tough, because things will be tough. If you have that positivity, that confidence; if you just move on when you’ve tried and you’ve done what you can but it’s just time to move on; if you pay attention to what’s going on around you and are dealing with things when they arise-you’re probably one of the SUCCESSFUL people. Are you?
