5 habits that make the difference between being successful vs unsuccessful.

There’s no secret formula to being successful and it certainly doesn’t ‘just happen.’ Success requires hard work, dedication and desire.

The difference between successful people and unsuccessful people comes down to habits. Simply changing your habits and integrating them into your daily life can be the difference between success and failure.

Check out these 5 habits that are the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people.

Want other people to fail vs. want other people to succeed
Unsuccessful people envy those that are successful and hope others fail. They view successful people as a threat to their own success and view them as competition. On the other hand, successful people seek the best in everyone and hope for others to succeed. They enjoy helping others thrive and watching them grow.

Blame others for your failures vs. accepting responsibility for your failures
Unsuccessful people are fast to point the finger and they blame their failures on others while successful people take responsibility. Unsuccessful people look for excuses opposed to considering what they could have done better. Successful people view failures as learning opportunities.

Talk about people vs. talk about ideas
Unsuccessful people love to gossip. They spend their time talking about people while successful people understand talking about people will not improve their own situation. Successful people love talking about and sharing ideas.

Resist change vs. accept change
Unsuccessful people fear change. As long as their basic needs are met they resist change in fear of losing consistency. Successful people accept change and are willing to make sacrifices.

Waste time vs. value time
Unsuccessful people love to procrastinate. They often let unimportant things get in the way of the important things. Successful people value their time and don’t let their time go to waste.
