7 things you’ll never hear a successful person say

Success, Go Get It!

If you spend time around truly successful people, you may notice that there are some things they simply refuse to say. They do not 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 do not solve problems in a meaningful way.

The decision to avoid false beliefs is deeply ingrained in those that continue moving forward and helps them succeed. Here is a list of seven things that you will never hear from a great entrepreneur.

  1. “I can’t do it.”
  2. “I don’t know how.”
  3. “I don’t have enough time.”
  4. “I don’t have time to learn.”
  5. “If I had more funding, I’d be successful too.”
  6. “Our competitors are stupid.”
  7. “Culture is overrated.”

Be sure the company you keep supports your mission and fosters an environment that helps lift you to excellence.

Commitment Demands a Choice

100% Commitment

Committed is the word used to describe some of the most successful people today, as well and others throughout history. Committed to their work and/or to their cause.  Their success has not come from any reported sense of genius or exceptional trait other than a willingness to stay ‘in the game’. They are individuals that have held steadfastly to a set of commitments and have seen these commitments through.

Sure, many times it is hard to commit – to agree to give it our all. It is not easy, I know. Because if it was, there will be no success stories in our world today; no successful marriages, friendships, work plans, etc.

Stay focused; fall down seven times, get up eight. Keep moving, keep growing, keep learning and stay committed. Real commitment is a lifetime venture, requiring time, hard work, and determination.

How passionate and committed are you to making a project work, making your career plan successful, raising your children, staying fit and healthy, etc.?

Commitment demands a Choice! Commitment demands Action!

When You Smile, the World Smiles Back

Smiling happens without much thought. When you watch a friend do something silly or embarrassing, you smirk. When a police officer lets you off without a ticket, you grin. Smiling is a very natural response that shares our happiness with others.

Did you know that smiling also triggers activity in your brain? Yes, there is a serious mind-body connection there, in your left frontal cortex to be exact, which is—not surprisingly—the area of your brain that registers happiness.

So what is it that makes you smile? How often do you smile in a day? Do you smile when you meet new people? When you see your friends? Around your co-workers? How about your significant other?

Read on for six reasons why smiling is good for you, your health and your social life!

  1. Smiling can make you happy (even when you are not).
    The mind-body connection is real! The simple act of smiling sends a message to your brain that you are happy; and when you are happy, your body pumps out all kinds of feel-good endorphins. Studies have shown even when we “fake” a happy smile, our bodies react and our endorphins start to flow!!
  1. Smiling can make others happy.
    Louis Armstrong said it best, “When you’re smilin’, the whole world smiles with you.” Have you ever heard that song? Well, it is true. Research shows that smiling is contagious.
  1. Smiling makes you more attractive.
    Ever wonder why we are asked to smile in photos? Because people usually look their best—and happiest—when smiling. So Say Cheese!
  1. Smiling can help you de-stress.
    Reducing stress is so important for health, too, as it can lower blood pressure, improve digestion and regulate blood sugar. Note that this works during workouts, too! If you’re having a hard time getting through that last rep or getting those final 5 minutes in on the treadmill, smiling can do wonders! Smiling is a Healthy Choice!
  1. Smiling can help you land a job.
    The next time you are dressing to impress, make sure to take that beautiful, natural smile with you!
  1. Smiling can lead to laughter.
    Laughter also helps blood flow, lowers blood sugar levels, reduces stress and improves sleep. It may also raise the level of infection-fighting antibodies in the body, which helps boost your immune system. Therefore, the moral of this story is smile—and laugh—often! It is like a good medicine!
  1. Smiling just feels good.
    Did you know that women are far more likely to smile than men? They do this in many different social situations, even though they are not necessarily happy or amused. In one field study, researchers smiled at approximately 150 males and 150 females in public. In general, women returned the smiles more often than men. Women returned the smiles to men 93 percent of the time and to other women 86 percent of the time. Males smiled back at women 67 percent of the time, and they returned smiles to men 58 percent of the time.
