Success is a process. It is not a final stop. If you want to really be successful, you must do the right things. Successful people are successful because they do what others are not willing to do, and they don’t do what others do.

You can do anything if you believe you can do it. You can’t do anything if you believe you can’t do anything.”

If you want more beautiful things in life, do things in beautiful ways. You must give beautiful things to people, and people will give beautiful things back to you.

Here are six things that successful people DON’T do:

They don’t waste time.

Successful people don’t waste their time. They value their time. They do the right and the most important things first. They don’t waste their time living in the past. They don’t waste their time living in the future. They waste their time living in the moment.

“All that really belongs to us is time; even he who has nothing else has that.”– Baltasar Gracian

They don’t try to change what they cannot change.

Successful people know what they can change, and they change it. Successful people know what they cannot change, and they don’t even try to change it. If you try to change what you cannot change, you are just wasting your time.

“Life is not orderly. No matter how we try to make it so, right in the middle of it we die, lose a leg, fall in love, drop a jar of applesauce.”- Natalie Goldberg, zen practitioner

They don’t fear success.

Successful people don’t fear success. They embrace it. They welcome it. They prepare for it. They are successful in their minds before they meet success. They know that success comes with discipline, with responsibility, with focus, and with integrity. They believe in themselves that they can succeed.

“Your chances of success in any undertaking can always be measured by your belief in yourself.”– Robert Collier

They don’t fear failure.

Successful people don’t fear failure. They embrace failure. They know that failure is part of the game of life. When they fail at something, they just keep moving. They don’t blame anyone for their mistakes. They take responsibility for what happened to them.

“I have not failed I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”– Thomas Edison

They don’t doubt themselves.

Successful people don’t doubt themselves. They believe they can do anything. They believe that nothing is impossible in life. They don’t doubt themselves. Successful people are scared, but they don’t allow fear to stop them from achieving their dreams.

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities. Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own power you cannot be successful or happy.”- Norman Vincent Pearle

They don’t search for happiness.

Successful people don’t search for happiness. They give happiness. They know that when you give happiness to people, you will be happy. For that reason, they always try to make people happy. If you want to be happy, make people happy. Add happiness to people’s lives, and they will add happiness to your life.

“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”- Albert Camus

How To Get What You Want From Life

To get what we want from life, we must first know what we want. Most people want something but they don’t know how to get them.

You will be successful if you know what you want.

You will be successful if you know how to get what you want.

You will be successful if you focus on getting what you want.

You can get what you want if you believe you can. Napoleon Hill said, “You can do it if you believe you can.”

You can really be successful if you can just do more than you are paid to do. Do more than you are paid to do. Don’t do what others are doing. Do what you think is right, and what will push you closer to your dream. Again, Napoleon Hill said, “Render more service than that for which you are paid and you will soon be paid for more than you render. The law of ‘increasing returns’ takes care of this.”

Let us look at more ways you can get the best that you so much deserved in life.

Take responsibility.                                                                     

When you take responsibility for your actions, you are giving yourself power to conquer other bigger and more challenging things ahead of you. But if you blame other people for your actions, you are giving your power away. Don’t blame anyone. Take responsibility for your actions.

You must accept responsibility for your actions, but not the credit for your achievements.”- Denis Waitley

Act!

To get what you want in life, act! Don’t wait for the perfect time to do it. Do it today. If you don’t take action to change your life, your life will not change.

Don’t watch the clock, do what it does. Keep going.”- Sam Levenson

Stop procrastinating.

Your success will not come from putting important things off until tomorrow. Your success will come from doing the first and the most important things first. Don’t procrastinate.

Arthur Ashe said, “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”

Failure is not final.

If you fail at something, don’t take it as final. It is not final, and it will never be. It is okay to fail when you are finding the right path to success. If you want to be successful, you must be comfortable with failure.

As Margie Warrell put it, “Just because you fail at something does not mean you’re a failure.”

Be patient.

It takes 10- 20 years to be lucky. If you want to be lucky, you must be patient. Success goes to those who are patient, not those who are always running. Be patient. Success is a process, not by accident.

“Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.”- Arthur Ashe

Think positively about things.

No matter what is happening around you, focus on the positive things. When you focus on positive things, you will attract positive things into your life. When you focus on negative things, you will attract negative things into your life.

“We are not permitted to choose the frame of our destiny. But what we put into it is ours.”– Dag Hammarskjold, economist

Everything is possible if you want it badly. Focus on what you want and you will get it.
