The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is that successful people do the things that unsuccessful people don’t want to do.” – John Paul DeJoria
Successful people do the things that others are not willing to do. It’s the small choices each and every single day that adds up to your final destination. Pull out a piece of paper and draw a line in between it naming one side positive and the other negative. Write out all the negative people in your life and the positive ones. Do not let negative people try to pull you back down. They are negative for a reason and stay far away from them as you can. Complaining about their circumstances and how they can’t catch a break is their own sob story. They have the same amount of hours on the clock each day to get better. If you want success bad enough you will seek out the right people in your life. Gossip, negativity, complaining, excuses, jealousy, people-pleasing, and etc. The list goes on and on. All signs of weakness. Eliminate all bullshit from your life. You have the choice to do what you want to do about your situation. You’re the one in control no one else.
Ignore the people who say well he or she got lucky. I’m sure they DID. The harder you work the luckier you get. The four-letter word called WORK is how you get lucky. Luck is for people who sit around all day expecting the opportunity to fall on their lap then buy scratch tickets expecting to hit it rich. There is no such thing as a rich quick scheme. It’s putting in the work every single day with no regrets. I keep emphasizing habits because they direct the course of your day.
Mindset is a critical component that reflects how you can bounce back from failure and rejection. Having a growth mindset versus fixed will allow you to keep learning unlike what the education forces us to do by memorizing information. When you take full interest in learning and growing you become limitless. Having a mind full of negativity and turmoil will not get you anywhere. Living in the present is where you should be focused at all times. It’s easy to get wrapped up in what everyone else is doing. Stay committed to improving yourself from the day before.
