Successful people expect to win. They create positive beliefs in their mind and use those beliefs to help them determine the right actions to take in order to achieve their desired outcomes. They create a “picture” of what success looks like in their mind first before their body actually gets there.
Successful people know it’s possible to experience big wins and successes, but they are more rare than one would imagine. It’s the consistent application of their skills that help them achieve success.
Successful people don’t make excuses when they experience a setback, a mistake or failure. They focus on what went wrong and what they can learn from it so that they can do it better the next time. They follow a simple and disciplined process: they own it, fix it, learn from it and then move on.
Successful people have the ability to control themselves (their thoughts and emotions). They’re able to evaluate situations as they occur; to stay in the moment and not allow the situation or others to control them or their destiny.
Successful people know that others will judge them regardless of what they do. As such, they don’t live their life trying to satisfy the standards of others. Rather they focus on consistently using their best habits and skills every day to help them achieve their goals.
