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

Failure Is The Way To Success

The road from where you are to where you want to be is through the gate of failure. Failure is the foundation upon which success is built. Failure teaches us something if we care to pay attention.

People want to succeed but they don’t want to fail first. Failure is part of life. It is part of the whole business of success. You cannot succeed without failing first. It sounds funny, but it is true.

Don’t let failure stop you from pursuing your dreams. Don’t let failure stop you from reaching your goals. No matter what is standing in your way, no matter what you are going through right now, don’t doubt yourself. Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from pursuing your dreams. Don’t let the fear of failure stop you from living your life.

Malcolm Forbes said, “Failure is success if we learn from it.” If you want to succeed, you must pay attention to failure. It has something to teach you. Failure tells us that there is still lots of work to be done. It reveals our flaws to us. It tells us that we are trying to make things happen. It tells us that we are brave, and that we are trying to get out of our comfort zones. So if you fail at something, be happy. Don’t beat yourself up. Go home, get ready, and launch again.

And you will succeed.

When people fail at something, they think it is over. It is not over; it is the beginning of progress. You cannot grow without multiple missteps. Failure is a part of the game of life. If you play it well, you are not a failure.

To understand failure better, here are 10 valuable lessons you should know about failure:

Failure is not permanent. If you fail at something, no matter what it is, don’t ever think that is the end of the road for you. It is just the beginning.

Failure is a sign of creativity. Failure is creativity. It means that you are doing something creative with your time. The more creative you are, the more mistakes you will make.

Real failure is from within. If you call yourself a failure, you are. Remember, you are what you say you are. Period. If you want to change that, change what you are saying to yourself.

Success is built on failures. When you see any successful person, you are looking at someone who has failed many times. You cannot succeed without first failing. If you want to succeed, master the art and science of failing.

Failure is a motivator. When you fail at something, don’t let it demotivate you. Let it be your source of motivation. Don’t blame yourself. Get up and keep going.

Failure is an opportunity to start again. Failure is a red light. Red means stop. Yellow means Ready. Green means go. When you fail, stop, think, ready, and go. Failure is an opportunity to start again. Start now!

Failure is not final. Failure is the beginning of a new life, a new start, a new experience, a new opportunity. When you fail, just know that it is a new beginning for you, not the end.

Failure is not dangerous. Even though failure is not celebrated in today’s world, failure is still the best way to learn and grow. We celebrate victories without learning. We don’t care about people who are making mistakes to get better. The latter are the people the society should keep encouraging to fail, because without failure, there is no progress. If society is to grow, if companies are to grow, if families are to grow, failure should be encouraged.

Failure is life. Failure is a part of life. Failure is the beginning of life. You cannot live your life without making a single mistake. If not, you are not doing enough. You are not using your full potentials. You are just playing a safe game. Remember, a safe game will give you a safe result. It will not give an extraordinary result. If you want to get extraordinary results, you have got to start doing extraordinary things.

Failure strengthens character. when you fail at something, your way of thinking, your way of looking at things, and your way of living your life will change. If it stays the same, it means you did not learn anything from it. Failure is a way of life if you learn from it. Failure is a teacher if you learn from it. Failure is the way if you allow it to show you the way.

Failure is the way, not a barrier.

The Real Failure

There is no failure in life. It depends on how you look at what happened to you. Instead of looking at what happened to you as a problem, instead of looking at the mistakes you have made, instead of looking at the bad decisions you have made as mistakes, look at them as learning opportunity.

Failure is a great teacher.”

Failure is a great teacher. You learn a lot from failure than you learn from success. The real failure is when you did not learn anything from what happened to you. It is real failure when you focus on the negative things in your life instead of focusing on the positive things. It is real failure when you quit before you make it. It is real failure when you quit before you start, when you didn’t try at all, when you try and quit the next day, when you fall and never rise up, and when you refused to listen to people who can change your life.
