How to be a success in Life

Headlines How to be a success in Life

Ever wondered why you are where you are today? Well a major contribution to your current status is your attitude. Winston Churchill once said “The optimist sees opportunity in every danger; the pessimist sees danger in every opportunity.”

Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. Some may say; if I had a good job I would have a good attitude! Isn’t it more truthful to say that if a person had a good attitude they would increase their chances of getting a good job?

Thomas Jefferson once said nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal while nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.

What is a good attitude?

It’s a way of thinking positively that says:

* I can control my life and achieve my goals.
* I am responsible for the choices I make.
* My past does not matter; I can change my future.

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.
You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.

James Truslow Adams said Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, “This is the real me,” and when you have found that attitude, follow it.

How sell yourself to others

The best way to sell yourself to others is first to sell the others to yourself. Check yourself against this list of obstacles to a pleasing personality: interrupting others; sarcasm; vanity; being a poor listener; insincere flattery; finding fault; challenging others without good cause; giving unsolicited advice; complaining; attitude of superiority; envy of others’ success; poor posture and dress.

Learn to be assertive, not aggressive. Be nice to everyone. That doesn’t mean letting other people take advantage of you, but it does mean looking for ways to get what you want-win without forcing the other person to lose.

It is possible to find win-win solutions to almost any situation (yes, there are exceptions, but they’re rare), but most of us need to learn how. We were raised on the idea of competition, where in order for me to win, you have to lose. In order for me to pass you have to fail.What we need to learn now is that we don’t have to play by win-lose rules — you can change the rules! People can only hear you when they are moving toward you, and they are not likely to when your words are pursuing them. Even the choice words lose their power when they are used to overpower. Attitudes are the real figures of speech.

Life is 10% what happens to me, and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you … we are in charge of our Attitudes.


  1. I am afraid to read. To avoid more confusion in my inner self. I also say happy Easter to all , especially to you Pankwa :-j

  2. Abash unbiblical pagan easter ,Happy Passover the rememberance of the messiah the passover Lamb who was sacrificed to fulfil .Passover the real rememberance of his death instituted by the messiah himself.

  3. True, many are the times when we meet money face to face but it seems as though its on the ass of a hungrey LION. Only the brave gets it.
    Slumdog#3. why behave like your name man? respect us for we are not and will never be pagans. Christ is and will forever be our LORD.

  4. If you are not a pagan why ignore the Luke 22 telling you to keep Passover in his rememberance instead you keep Easter(a pagan goddess). Do you think Christ would be happy that you are not obeying him and instead you have taken a devil’s festival and hidden it’s meaning

    Don’t get angry at me for telling you like it is, you only have yourself to blame . You cannot drink form the cup of demons and pretend you obey christ

  5. Yahushuah is my messiah and my elohim and KIng too , it’s funny we follow the same messiah and yet so different. Excuse me for obeying him and not Men . Go on and enjoy your Ishtar/Eostre eggs I will enjoy Passover .

  6. SLUMDOG. I think you are more demonic than the demons themselves. Hope the dog you are showing us is not the one in you.

    Any way I have always belived the bible even were it says SATAN AT TIMES TRANSFORMS HIMSELF INTO THE ANGEL OF LIGHT with an intention of descieving many. Unfortenately I can never be descieved by cheap reasoning.

  7. haha thank you for such pitty I don’t take offence to stuff with no truth in it. The apostles and Yahushuah were also called possessed by the perushim(pharasee’s) .

    If am so demonic and you believe in the bible care to show me where EASTER is even mentioned in the bible. Because one thing I know about the devil is he hates the truth that doesn’t seem to apply to me but to you.

  8. Happy Shake Shake day! one Mosi, two Muchinga, three Savanna’s four Redds, five Rhino’s, six Spliffs. seven Michopo’s

    Shabbat Shalom!!!!

  9. LT, please post more of such motivations to these so called and monotonous bloggers. Typical sadists; exhobiting the highest form of intellectual bankrupsty and arrogance! They need to be cheered up so that they see the other side of happiness;away from the one-roomed flats in the diaspora.

  10. A lot of people are discouraged because they measure their success by the success of others. This results in inferior feelings of failure.
    But success and failure are 2 closely related phenomenons that will always accompany every person that walks on earth.

  11. It is very interesting for me today. I have not even read this article but continue to read the bloggers entries. Very funny. This is what I call happiness. Try it out and you will like it.
    This is what happens if a blind man tries to help another blind man cross the road. Welcome to the real world.

  12. KC and you need to go for spelling injections because RABBIES is RABIES

    I never told you to worship eggs and pretend it’s christ get mad at the person that told you to(Emperor constantine in 321 at the Edict of milan)

  13. Slumdog ‘whatever’ sounds like one misguided pervert who spends lots of valuable time extracting bits of ill-researched statements from the internet to raise his argument. Could you please let the millions of us who believe in Easter continue to do so. It’s such a shame that you are celebrating our holiday as well. I hope you are not as ugly as your Gravatar.

  14. alot of pipo want to succed in life but dont know that thire attitue is a hindering factor,lets hop whoever reads this will check themsleves and see why things are not moving
