04 Oct 5 Things Truly Successful People Will Never Say
What makes the biggest difference between someone who’s accomplished and someone who’s stuck in rut?
Answer is: Their MINDSET!
This is why successful people get different results from the majority out there.
I came across a video shared recently by success insider tv on Facebook on 5 Things Truly Successful People Will Never Say. I find it a timely reminder for myself, hence I’ve spent some time to write out the video contents and added my thoughts to them, to share it with you,
I believe you will find it useful and maybe even surprised at these 5 things truly successful people will never say, because it’s just not part of their psychology.
#1 “I’ve tried everything”
When was the last time you said this or someone say this?
Don’t let this stop you. Have you really tried everything? Go try something different. There are over 7 billion people on this planet. If you can’t find the solution, there’s plenty of people to ask! Don’t let this statement stagnate you and prevent you from going forward.
#2 “I don’t need help”
Truth is, there is no such thing as a self-made man (or woman). There is no such entrepreneur who have made it big without a team. There is simply no such thing. And if you truly believe that you don’t need help on you journey, name one successful entrepreneur who doesn’t have a mentor along the way, helping to grow a team. You must realise that somebody has walked your path, so the fastest way to success is to ask for help. You have to realise that you aren’t going to be the jack of all trades,you have to focus on your craft and be the master of it. Delegate the tasks to someone who can do the job better than you, so you can focus on your own strengths and skills.
#3 “Easier said than done”
When was the last time you’d said this? Most people who said this are just giving themselves the excuse to not move forward in life, why they should not attempt to do the impossible or the tasks. Remove this sentence from your dictionary, it does not exist, just take action. Do it, cause others will be saying this sentence and you can live the life that majority can’t.
#4 “I can’t do that”
Successful people will never say they “can’t” do something. They’ll find a way, there’s always a way, that’s entrepreneur spirit.
“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water.
~ Bruce Lee”
I love the above quote by Bruce Lee. You have to always be like water, you have to just flow and let things eventually connect. You just have to take action, you just have to find a way. A truly successful person will always find another way when one seems bad. If you don’t think you can do it, find someone else who can do it for you! There will always be another solution. Think out of the box. Saying “I can’t” is the moment you you are telling yourself that you are settling for a life of mediocrity.
#5 “Thats not me”
In order to be successful in life, you have to do things that, that’s not you. For example, if you are extremely shy, and you look at people who do public speaking, and saying “That’s not me”, then you will always accept the fact that you are shy and will not step out of your comfort zone. In order to progress in life, in order to grow in life, you have to do things that you don’t want to do, you have to do new things in order to grow.
The moment you say “Thats not me”, thats when you stop growing in life, and when you stop growing in life, you will “die”. So if you want to truly flourish in and get the most of this gifted precious life, be sure to move forward on things that you say “that’s not you”.
Hopefully none of the above are your catch-phrases, though I am still sometimes guilty of #4 and #5. ?
But with some self-empowerment programs that I am in, I believe that if I follow the principles with consistency and commitment, I am able to prepare myself for success!
If you are struggling with the not saying the above, I would like to offer some help to let you see through the fog.
