10 things successful people do NOT do
Reviewed in the United States on June 3, 2014
Dr. Henry Cloud's immense and practical research on what it takes to succeed has uncovered 10 things successful people never do. These same things are what keeps many of us from succeeding where we want.
First 3 things successful people do:
1. They never go back to what has failed unless something has truly changed or is significantly different. They don't go back to an old way of doing things, an old company or an old relationship, unless something significant has changed or is different to merit going forward with that person, company or project.
2. They never try to change another person. They know they cannot force anyone to change. The person has to be motivated to change or have consequences or purpose that are meaningful to the person in order to change. As leaders, they can set up the environment to allow those who want to reach specific rewards. The person with the inner drive will move towards changing their own lives. Person without that drive or without the right motivation will not move towards change. Successful leaders accept this. Great idea for healthy relationships between spouses or within other context of family relationships also!
3. They do not try to please everyone. When you succeed, some will like how you did it, and some won't. Focus on pleasing the humble, loving, encouraging, broken before God people.Don't waste energy on negative critics who are not solutions focused!
