Successful People Always Act As If They Are In Total Control!

There's a saying often credited to Ignatius: "Pray as if God will take care of all; act as if all is up to you." (Cool quote.)
The same premise applies to luck. Many people feel luck has a lot to do with success or failure. If they succeed, luck favored them, and if they fail, luck was against them.
Most successful people do sense that good luck played some role in their success. But they don't wait for good luck or worry about bad luck. They act as if success or failure is completely within their control. If they succeed, they caused it. If they fail, they caused it.
By not wasting mental energy worrying about what might happen to you, you can put all your effort into making things happen. (And then if you get lucky, hey, you're even better off.)
You can't control luck, but you can definitely control you.

Successful People Have “Grit”!

First the word:

Now the definition:
"The ability to work hard and respond resiliently to failure and adversity; the inner quality that enables individuals to work hard and stick to their long-term passions and goals."

The definition of grit almost perfectly describes qualities every successful person possesses! Period.

Successful People Make Time Every Day To Study!

It's a key point most overlook. Your education isn't complete when you finish college. It isn't finished when you get your first $100,000-per-year job. You must frequently study new ideas and methods. However, the most important thing includes studying people's failures. History doesn't have to repeat itself with your product launch or bank account.

Figure out where other people went wrong so that you can avoid making the same mistakes.

Successful People Take One Hour For Lunch!

Many of the successful people will stop for a minimum of one hour for lunch!
It isn't that they desire a break to eat elegantly or to goof around; it is because they know it is crucial for efficiency. If you frequently strain your eyes, they'll become sore and you'll get a headache.
The same holds true for your level of concentration. You must relax. You have to move your legs around, get your blood flowing, and receive a bit of sunshine. It'll open up your mind and rejuvenate your spirit.

Successful People Exploit What Works For Them!

The business world has become a very confusing space. It is possible to work on creating a community, begin a black-hat operation, sell a blog, or start whatever business! The options and choices are countless. And inside all of these endless options, there's a lot of space to become lost and become distracted from what's working.

Therefore, if you discover something that you're obviously good at and something that is making money, you ought to attempt to exploit this avenue for as long as possible. Do not waste time searching for something new, as you have something that already works.
