Every one of us may have a different definition of success. The one thing we all have in common is the desire to achieve our own version of success. I’ve talked before about 5 things successful people don’t do. Looking back on that list, here are four more things that successful people don’t do…
They don’t worry about things they can’t control: You only have so much brain power you can use during the day. Why waste that energy on things that you can’t change? Focus your mind on what comes next and leave the worry behind.
They don’t care about what others think: You’ve got better things to do. Let the Negative Normans of the world live in their pessimistic bubble. You reside here and you’ve got things to do and people to see.
They don’t repeat mistakes: I love the movie Groundhog Day. As Bill Murray keeps repeating his day over and over, it takes him a while to realize he’s got a chance to stop making the same mistakes every day. Just like Phil Conner (Murray), once you’ve stepped in a pot hole full of icy water, you’ll want to try and make sure you don’t ever do it again.
They don’t think they’re owed anything: Other than the Kardashians, successful people usually work pretty hard to get where they’re at. Just because you did well in school or had a prestigious internship, doesn’t mean you should be handed the keys to the company. If you want to be successful you’ll have to put your head down and go to work.
