We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. - Aristotle
Your daily activities create your future. If you want a positive looking future, you have to plan to apply good habits in your every day life. I know it’s not necessarily a walk in the park to develop wise and desirable habits, but with a strong determination and the drive to reach your goals, you can weather life storms. You can actually make these storms as stepping stones. Use them as a guide to catapult you to the upper echelons of your field. Being in that level, in turn, will help you transform yourself into an eagle in the marketplace. A great leader in your chosen arena. A successful person.

When I consider successful people, ideas of apathetic, business-orientated, intimidating people come to mind. Never before have I considered the spirit of those I consider successful, let alone imagined that successful people are actually positive, empathetic and open to those around them as this infographic from Working Moms Only suggests.
So what are the differences between successful and unsuccessful people?
Unsuccessful people tend to:
- Criticise others.
- Exude anger and a sense of entitlement.
- Blame others for their failing.
- Fear change.
- Hold grudges.
These seem pretty obvious; you’re not going to get very far if you’re too busy putting energy into disliking those around you. It’s the qualities of the successful person I find most interesting:
- They compliment, forgive and give credit to others.
- They share information and ideas with those around them.
- They embrace change and continuously learn.
These qualities are entirely different from my pre-conceived ideas of successful people! But there we have it, being nice, kind, and exuding joy and positivity will lead to a more successful life!
