Successful vs Unsucessful People


As we start the new year, let’s begin to open ourselves to all possibilities for 2015. I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year. This year my company will transform and help others to transform as well. We all look to be successful in everything we do. I saw an article on LinkedIn the other day and it made me think of how important our behaviors are to our success. Following are traits of a successful person vs an unsuccessful person. Make this a year of success!

Successful People…
Compliment Others
Forgive Others
Keep a Journal
Accept Responsibility for your failures
Want others to succeed
Keep a ‘to-be’ list
Set goals and develop life plans
Continuously learn
Operate from a transformational perspective
Keep a ‘to-do/project’ list
Embrace Change
Exude Joy
Share Information and Data
Talk about Ideas
Read Everyday
Give other people credit for their victories
Have a sense of gratitude

Unsuccessful People…
Criticize others
Hold a grudge
Blame others for their failures
Say they keep a journal but really don’t
Think they know it all
Operate from a transactional perspective
Secretly hope others fail
Don’t know what they want to be
Never set goals
Exude anger
Horde information and data
Talk about people
Fly by the seat of their pants
Fear change
Watch TV everyday
Take all of the credit for their victories
Have a sense of entitlement

Be as successful as you can be in 2015 and enjoy the transformation.
