In life we need to practice actions inspite of fear, inspite of doubt, inspite of worry, inspite of uncertainty, inspite of inconvenience, inspite of discomfort, and even to practice acting when we’re not in the mood to act. If you are willing to do only what’s easy, life will be hard. But if you’re willing to do what’s hard, life will be easy. Either you’re a person who will be stopped, or you are a person who won’t be stopped. You choose.

Here are seven things unsuccessful people do that the successful Don't.

1: unsuccessful people watch TV, successful people read books.

How many hours you spend in front of the TV, and when was the last time you read a book, how many books do you read per year.

2: unsuccessful people get paid based on time, successful people get paid based on results.

Let's say you're working at Empower Limited , you may be the best Project Coordinator on the planet ever. But what value do you bring to Empower Limited? Successful people get paid based on results, not time invested. They say we're working on a product we spend a year creating perfecting the product, we bring it to the marketplace and it sucks, it bombs, it doesn't make us a successful. The world doesn't give a shit. You don't make money, nobody cares how much time, blood sweat and tears you put into creating a product, and bring it to the marketplace, how much risk that you take. What they need to see is result. That's why the highest paid athlete in the world, they don't get paid by how many hours they practice or how many times they invested. No, it is, how much they perform, they get paid based on performance.

3: unsuccessful people blame others for their misfortunes, successful people take responsibility.

for successful people own failures is evil, poor people is always somebody else's fault, is the economy, is the government. It's my boss, it's my job, It's my city, it's my neighbor, it's my friends, it's always somebody else, it's never their own fault. Rich people take responsibility. If your life stinks it's your fault. They take responsibility for own action when you take responsibility, what happens is you gain power, the power to change the power to do something different. We member lane people blame people.

4: Unsuccessful people focus on saving, successful people focus on investing.

Poor people are like you know what; don't drink, Starbucks coffee in the morning, try to save a few bucks here and there while your don't fly first class, fly economy. Always try to save a few bucks. Well, here's the thing, a penny saved is still a problem, you're not going to get rich by trying to save a few bucks. You don't have a saving problem you have an income problem. You need to earn a lot more money. So you could invest.

5: unsuccessfulpeople know everything around them, successful people continuously learn.

You will see poor people always very opinionated, they always want to tell the world about their opinions about politics, about sports about the society, about the government about every single thing that's around them. Successful people are humble, willing to learn, they're asking questions, they are listening, they are reading books, continuous learning because is the only way to get attention in their life. So your opinion doesn't count. Remember, your income can only go to the extent that you do, your wealth can only grow as fast as you can.

6: unsuccessful people believe that money is the root of all evil, successful people believe that poverty is the root of all evil.

You've heard the saying, “money is the root of all evil”? No, lack of money is the root of all evil. I want you to look at the poorest neighborhoods, I would you to think about those areas, crime, drug problems, all kinds of issues, you see in the history of mankind. It is a lack of money that's causing the issues, money itself is neutral. Money is like a tool, you can use it for good or you can use it for evil, it's all up to you.

7: unsuccessful people, they have lottery mentality and successful people have action mentality.

You see, most people believe that the only way to get rich is buying a lottery ticket, even though they know that the chances of winning is small to none but they buy that fantasy. Hopefully if I win, I'm going to buy that house, I'm going to quit that job, I'm going to take that vacation. No successful people have an action mentality, they believe it's going to be, it is up to me, I'm going to make it happen, I'm going to make myself successful. I don't need to rely on some third party, and I definitely don't need to rely on some lottery ticket, I'm going to make it happen. 

Many philosophers argued that “extremely poverty is a threat to human security and health everywhere” So, no one can stop you from earning any amount you want per day, it's upon you. Keep hustling you see results. 

Thank you!
