1. They allow themselves
TIME to succeed.
It takes ten years to become a doctor, five years
to become a lawyer, and 1000 hours of apprenticeship to become a
barber. Yet, too many people try just a few months or a few
weeks, and decide that their business just didn't work out.
2. They have strong
Many people wish they were successful or
wealthy, but they don't really want success bad enough to do all
the things that are necessary to achieve it.
3. They have a PLAN.
They don't let each day take care of itself.
A successful person outlines and plans their time; every year,
every month, every week, every day, and every hour. They know
where they are going.
4. They have BELIEF in
themselves and their business.
Belief is so powerful that it can overcome
almost any obstacle. Most people don't believe strongly enough
in themselves or their opportunity.
5. They are TEACHABLE
and willing to continually learn.
Herbert Hoover said, "The wise man
learns from experience. The super wise man learns from the
experience of others." Top people read books, listen to
tapes and CDs on achievement, attend seminars, and talk with
successful people to obtain ideas that will help them to be
6. They show ENTHUSIASM
and find ways to stay motivated.
Emerson said, "Nothing great has ever
been accomplished without enthusiasm." Enthusiasm is to
success as yeast to bread... It raises the dough!
7. They work HARD AND
It's too bad that many people have become
lazy, apathetic or negative. They are missing out on some of the
greatest riches in life. Achievers work hard and smart. They
also have fun doing it because they have desire, belief and
all these seven reasons why people succeed, not one of them has
to do with age, race, sex, nationality, marital status,
background or formal education.
