The Difference Between Successful MenWomen & The Rest

Last Update: August 15, 2020

What is the difference between successful men and the rest?

The difference between successful people and the rest?

We may think we are successful in our own right. So let us compare successful people with you and me.

What separate the successful men from the rest?

The thought processes and the action we take. Maybe.

What constitute the successful thought processes and the action we take? The following factors must be understood and must be applied.

1. What is our self-belief? We should know what is correct self-belief.

2. What is our attitude? It should be positive, we should know what constitute a positive attitude.

3. What is our mind set? It should be the right mindset. What makes the right mindset?

    All these questions, we all have personal answers that would suit our character and unique way of doing things.

    Why? Are we successful yet? Are you thinking you are successful? To be contented in life does not mean we are successful, either we are better than successful or we are deceiving ourselves.

    Accepting you don’t want to give more effort because of the comfort level you are “enjoying” right now, is like saying, I am done, I quit. In fact, comfort zone will eat away all the comfort you are enjoying until poverty slap you on your face. Inaction breeds a miserable life.

    Success should be a continuous journey or is it? Let us see what really constitute success!

    Success is courage to continue

    According to Winston Churchill, the great wartime British leader “Success is not final; failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.” In my opinion success just like excellence is a way of life. It is in built in things we do on a daily basis. In this time, just like so many, I have lost my sources of income, the businesses and the rentals, my savings and my investment went nil. However, I am more inspired and determined to surpass what I had before because in my mind I saw the way to it.

    There is hope and anticipation of better days, they are all accompanied by the courage to pursue and start again from scratch knowing nothing is impossible to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams

    Success is a story of failure

    We have to accept in life that it is a given we are going to stumble and even fall.

    Sometimes we screw ourselves big time but for people who do not understand the real nature of success, they easily go frustrated and give up.

    When the truth of the matter is a fall or failure is not the opposite of success. It is a process by which we can arrive at it.

    For failure is but a lesson to learn the thing to avoid, things not to do again next time and to understand some of our actions were not actually the right way to achieve success.

    The story of success is a story of chains of failures and then chains of successes. At any rate, more often than not, It’s almost no way to avoid failure if you really wanted to be successful.

    There is a sure way to succeed, all great successful people knew it. It is the law of effort where effort is on the right track, in this case while the effort is on the right track we could as always make mistakes, the more mistakes the shorter you will reach success. Effort is action.

    The more action the more results, among the results will be success. Who knows you might hit it at one go.

    Success is creating your own trail

    Others define success as your own way, your own queer ideas and making things happen for the world to enjoy and make the life the way you conceived it to be. In the words of Anne Sweeney, Business woman, President of Disney Channel from 1996-2014. She said “Define success on your own terms, achieve it by your own rules, and build a life you’re proud to live.”

    Super successful people make their own route to success, indeed they create blazing trails and have done no one has ever done before. The trail blazers like Henry Ford and he was followed by so many, including Toyota and Renault. Trail blazers are leaders copied by others. Smart phone of Steve jobs for instance. What about Bill Gates, Col. Sanders, among others.

    Success is an endless journey

    Another thing about success, it is not a one stop station or a destination to arrive at.

    It is never like a trip to Jerusalem alone. Success is not a race with a finish line. It is not like we strive hard and do everything we can and finally we got it to the finish line – and rest.

    We celebrate and we made it. We know we achieved our goal many would be satisfied and they would stop. Then rest and relax. And then, we stay with the life of no race, of “sweet time”, not doing anything and remember how we finish the race as if that is all there is to it.

    And we actually stop doing everything that made us successful. Because you have become so comfortable you haven’t notice you are getting into a miserable situation.

    You know, success is not like that, it is not like a race, it is a journey that never ends.

    Success needs a mentor

    Success origin comes from the person who showed you the way, who guided you and mentored you, a person who gave you the understanding to your version of success. In this situation, Kyle and Carson, open the door of the WA community to show the way to online business success.

    Pele, a great football player said, “Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”

    Passion and interest with a compelling reason as your big why are the ingredients from which we take our strength and inspiration to hit the road rolling.

    According to Jim Rohn a great mentor and motivator, “Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. Don’t wish it were easier; wish you were better.”

    It is the habit of these people to sharpen their tools as they proceed in their endeavor to succeed

    Jeff Olson, Author of The Slight Edge: Secret to a successful life said, “What you do today matters. What you do every day matters. Successful people just do the things that seem to make no difference in the act of doing them and they do them over and over and over until the compound effect kicks in.”

    These people are no talkers, they do not complain, condemn or criticize per se, they persist, persevere achieve success to another one to another one...

    Successful people difference to very successful people

    Warren Buffett once said, "The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything." In a way, he's right.

    Successful people don’t wait for circumstances to be better, they create better circumstances. They work hard to do what it takes to achieve the goal they set up for themselves. This is related to putting correct action than day dreaming. They naturally know what to do. They work as if there is no tomorrow. They give due diligence to details, they pay their dues. And they keep their eyes on the goals.

    Super successful people welcome change like the challenges we have today. They see opportunities in economic crisis. Their thoughts are extraordinary and they take immediate and relentless action! They are not only super patient but super resilient as well. They are super adaptable, They keep innovating, synergizing and thriving more.

    Indeed, successful people have distinct differences on their self-belief, attitude and mindset. To know self-belief and mindset as well as attitude of successful people is to know the way to success.

    Well written and of great insight, Florentino! I hope your post is read not just once but several times, by the members of WA. And that they take the time to let the essence of your post sink in and understood

    This post is not just a motivational type of writing. This is a "recipe" on how to reach your goals, and to develop your goals further, no matter how small or how big they are.

    As you write the recipe is not a "difficult one", but you have to do the work, each day, it doesn´t do it by itself. Without continous action, no success.

    Thank you for sharing your own experience to highlight the message of your post.

    My success is by waking up each morning, knowing that I have done my best in everything that I have done the day before.

    Amazing post and the definition of successful people. You are right, it's our perception that defines our success to us. To me, success is not always about the materialistic things.
    It can be about your health, healthy/happy family and you have roof over your head and food on your table. And you don't have to worry about where the next meal is coming from and how you will pay your bills.

    Success is about the peace and serenity that is part of your everyday life, and that you are comfortable in your environment.

    I think that's more than what the money can buy. Once you have this 'comfortable' base, you can earn the money that make your life even more comfortable, just like the cherry on top of a cake. But first, the base is very important in my opinion.

    Exactly. Success is conceptualized by a lot of people on just the money side. Basically, I hope and pray all of us to have the requirements you have just mentioned already. But I know with this pandemic those things you mentioned have compromised and threatened in different degree in our lives.

    Thank you for you wonderful insight, Rani. Glad to meet you here.

    Oh my goodness! Every single word true - 'no way to avoid failure if you really want to be successful' 'success is an endless journey' - I have never looked at it like this and understand the importance of this! It really is a long road with ups and downs and never ending. Thank you very much.
