One Difference between Successful and Unsuccessful People

successful-vs-unsuccessful-peopleOne big difference between successful and unsuccessful people is none other than their mindsets. If you look at things, pretty much everything can be learned if you are willing to put up with things and go all the way. Successful people have different, we can rather say opposite mindsets than unsuccessful people.

  • Determined

Successful people are very determined and ambitious individuals, meaning that they won’t rest on a subject matter until they are satisfied with the results. Their attitude of determination is their drive and bridge to their achievements. They are always on the move to get things done; ‘okay let’s see –what’s next? How can I get this done, what do I need to do accomplish this and that, who do I need to contact to help me with this project?’ They are constantly trying to make things happening and they don’t settle until they succeed or are satisfied with the final answer.

  • Go-getters

They are go-getters; they go after what they want. Go-getters are people who are not afraid of rejections. If they like something, or they want something they are not afraid to go after it. They are not afraid to ask for what they want, or pursue what they want. Basically, they are not afraid to fail at all. They have a “Yes I Can,” or “Why Not,” kind of attitude. They don’t wait until promotion comes to them; if they know they deserve it, they simply go and ask for it. A go-getter attitude isn’t afraid to set itself in a difficult situation that only by doing so it knows it will reap great rewards. Failure is the best form of feedback for successful people. They know mistakes are inevitable, so they welcome them, and learn as much as possible from each one of them.

  • Goal-diggers

Successful people have dreams and aspirations. They use them as their guiding directions to their long-awaited successful journeys. Not only they step out of their comfort zones to achieve things that other people can only dream of, they also put their dreams, goals, and ideas into a plan, and write down somewhere, with concrete action steps to help make them into realities. They know that having goals is extremely important for their success. Everyone has their own definition of what success means to them, but whatever it is, if you want to be successful, have goals, and create a plan of execution, and work toward them.


  • Committed

Successful people have a clear history of setting out to do something, giving it their all, and accomplishing it. Even when they don’t feel their best, they will do what they promised or planned to do for that day, or week, or month. They are committed to their work, their plans, projects, self-improvement, businesses, career, even their loved ones. Even though some successful people have a tendency to only be committed in some aspects and areas of life, but yet ignore the others. If you want to be successful in your business, you have got to commit yourself to your business. The same goes for your spouse for instance, or your family life in general, and so on. It’s simple; we pay more attention to our top priorities in our lives.

  • Disciplined

Successful people are most self-disciplined and focused individuals. They put in time and effort, even if it is a little bit each day to move closer toward their long-term goals. They understand that mastery of any craft entails daily practice. In life, there are two kinds of change; there is a permanent change, and a temporary change. And the difference between the two is self-discipline. With temporary change, you do it only when you are motivated or when under favorable conditions, but when push comes to shove, you quit or stop. However, with permanent change also known as ongoing change, you do it for a long-haul; you manage to delay gratification for long-term rewards. And in order to have permanent change, it requires self-discipline and ability to stay focused. In other words, you have got to be a disciple – a disciplined one.

  • Lifelong Learners

Successful people invest in themselves. To become successful, you need to invest time, money, and energy into learning as much as you can about your industry, business, profession, and et cetera so that you can become as skilled as possible and as well as improve yourself, and your business, career development, and so on. Remember now, knowledge is king, only if you know how to use it and apply into your life. Successful people are constantly learning about things; how they can become better, and successful. They learn what they need to learn, but also adapt to change.

These six attitudes exemplify successful people mindsets. They can be learned if you begin to push your boundaries on a daily basis. Actively foster the mindset of a successful person and you will surely end up becoming one of them. In all aspects of life – personal fulfillment, relationships, work, or fitness – it is the mindset of a successful person that helps them to be successful.
