4 big differences between successful and unsuccessful people

4 big differences between successful and unsuccessful people

The world is supposedly divided into the haves and the have-nots.

The reality is, like Yoda once said, it is the dos and the do-nots.

What I mean by that is that success has as much to do with mindset as it has to do with anything else.

The most successful people have common traits that ultimately result in them achieving things that other people only dream about.

On the other hand, the less successful also share commonalities but rather than lifting them up, they keep them down.

In fact, it is quite easy to distinguish the successful from the unsuccessful – and it has nothing to do with what type of car that they drive.

1. Embrace change

The most successful people embrace change.

And that is imperative today given the speed of technological change that is part and parcel of our everyday lives.

Successful people view change as opportunities, which they can implement in their businesses to ensure they are always relevant.

Unsuccessful people, on the other hand, fear change.

They like every day to be the same as the one before because it makes them feel like they are in control.

The problem with this attitude is that it holds them back and means that, even if they decide to try embracing change, they are always in catch-up mode.

2. Want others to succeed

It might be seen as a bit of a cliché but the mantra “there is no ‘I’ in team” is a vital cog in the mindset of successful people.
They surround themselves with great people who have skills and talents different from their own.

As I always say, if you’re the smartest person in your team, then you’re in trouble!

By creating a cohesive unit that is working towards common goals, the most successful are supercharging their chances of success.

And, not only that, when the team has a win, successful people ensure that it is a team, rather than an individual, victory.

Unsuccessful people often feel jealous when someone is more successful than they are.
