Success is a personal category, regardless of objective estimates. Successful men often do not try to be successful – they only endeavor to adequately accept what they are.
If you experience yourself as unsuccessful and think that you know what success is, then think again.
These are the differences between successful men and the rest:
Successful men do not care about others’ opinions
Successful men are far above the average – they have their own standards and values and are not overwhelmed by the fact what others think about them, whether they will be accepted or what kind of impression they will leave behind.
They do not need other people’s approval and opinion – they think with their own heads.
Successful men do not follow others
Successful men are not followers. They often get the role of a leader, although they do not have the will to be the one in charge.
Successful men do not need personal idols in their lives, nor the need to lead – if they are leaders, it is because of their natural predisposition.
They have free mind, quick reaction, wide thoughts and are often able to impose themselves with the power of integrity, without the intention of winning respect.
Successful men do not get nervous about things that are beyond their control
Men who are successful in life do not lose their precious time, complaining about the injustices in life.
There will always be forces that will dictate the circumstances and that will pose challenges beyond our control and creation.
By contrast, successful people always try to control only what is in their power – their thoughts and actions.
Successful men do not try to impress people
The illusionist differs from the magician by using tricks and nourishing his ego with enthusiasm, annoyance from the audience, and applause.
The magician only finishes his job in a way he best knows and wants to apply it. He is preoccupied with his time and has no room to pay attention to what kind of impression he leaves, with which to feed his ego.
This is more than clear, right?
Successful men do not give up after defeat
Defeat is an experience and valuable lesson that needs to be mastered in life. The losers give up after they’ve lost a fight, and the winners know how to stand on their feet and try again, trying to figure out where they made the wrong move the first time around.
Successful men do not repeat their mistakes
Stubbornness is one thing, but persistence is something totally different.
Men who are stubborn go from a loss into another. But the persistent ones change the approach and find different ways to ensure success.
The lesson is learned – do not be stubborn, be persistent!
