    Because I never trusted my talents, my looks or my luck, and I had
    no connections, I studied what successful people did and tried to
    mimic that. Then I studied what unsuccessful people did and tried
    to avoid that. 
While there are many things that seem to differentiate
    those who are successful from those who aren't, I’ve noticed one
    simple difference that stands out the most—successful people are
    often more willing. What exactly are they more willing to do than
    others? Here are five key

    If you spend time around truly successful people, you may notice
    that there are some things they simply refuse to say. 
They don't
    waste their time dwelling on negative thoughts or making excuses.
    They know that self-limiting beliefs keep them from success and
    excuses are simply stories that don't solve problems in a meaningful

    The decision to avoid false beliefs is deeply ingrained in great
    entrepreneurs. It keeps them moving forward and helps them

    There are a ton of qualities that can help you succeed, and the
    more  carefully a quality has been studied, the more you know it’s
    worth your time and energy.

    Angela Lee Duckworth was teaching seventh grade when she noticed
    that the material wasn’t too advanced for any of her students. They
    all had the ability to grasp the material if they put in the time and
    effort. Her highest performing students weren’t those who had the
    most natural talent; they were the students who had that extra
    something that motivated them to work harder than everyone else.

    Angela grew fascinated by this “extra something” in her students and,
    since she had a fair amount of it herself, she quit her teaching job so
    that she could study the concept while obtaining a graduate degree in
    psychology at UPenn.

    25 Habits: Successful & Extremely Happy People
       |  Entrepreneur, Peter Daisyme                                                                        07/18/2017
         What's the secret to happiness? That can differ according to the
    person involved. But we do know that happy people have different
    habits and think differently than those who are miserable. So, the
    good news is, if you're trying to be one of those happy people,
    recognize that that desired emotion comes from within and that
    you have the power to literally turn that frown upside down by
    mastering some simple habits.

    Not everyone who's on top today got there with success after success. 
    More often than not, those who history best remembers were faced with numerous obstacles that
    forced them to work harder and show 
more determination than others. This can be said for
    education as well, 
as furthering your education with a bachelor’s or master’s degree can also help
    do wonders for your 
success. Next time you're feeling down about your failures in college or in a
    career, keep these fifty famous 
people in mind and remind yourself that sometimes failure is just
first steps  

    The Morning Habits Of Highly Successful People
       |  Forbes, Alice G. Walton                                                                                                                                                     01/29/2016
    Successful people have all different types of morning rituals. They’ve likely tailored their routines
    over the years to fit them best—some read the newspaper, some get good family 
time in, some
    meditate or do yoga and an awful lot of them exercise. But what they don’t 
do is roll over, hit
    the alarm and say, “Screw it, I’ll just sleep a bit more.” They get up, do 
their morning thing and hit
    the ground running.

    While comparing career accomplishments, you were shocked to learn that the kid from school with
    the genius IQ, the one all the teachers thought would be spectacularly successful, had 
struggled with
    his career. How could this be, you wondered. This was the person everyone 
thought would invent
    something that would change the world.
  It turns out that intelligence might not be the best indicator
    of future success.
