Today’s Solutions: September 25, 2022

How do you define success? Whether it be personal or professional, we all have different standards for success, but successful people do share traits in common. Here are 5 things successful people don’t care about.

  1. What others think they should do: People are all too eager to share their opinions. Maybe your parents wanted you to be a doctor, or your sister thinks you should take up Cross-fit. The influence of others can be beneficial, but at the end of the day, successful people clarify their own goals and know what is important to them.
  2. Grandiose plans: Successful people know that big plans mean nothing if you’re not making tangible steps in the present. It’s important to have a vision for the future, but those who achieve their goals know that usually, slow and steady wins the race.
  3. Minor actions: Every big win starts with one small change, but successful people also know that real achievement means taking big steps towards what you really want. Take a risk, get out of your comfort zone, and do something big!
  4. Being right: Successful people know that nobody is right all of the time. They collaborate and learn from others. They bring their best to the table and benefit from the expertise of others.
  5. Pleasing everyone: This one goes back to caring what others think. Successful people know what is and isn’t worthy of their time. They know what feedback is constructive. And they know that pleasing everyone just isn’t realistic.

We all have the capacity to be successful. Too often we get caught up in the nitty-gritty and lose track of what we really want to achieve. Define your goals, make a plan to achieve them, and success will be yours in no time.
