10 Things Successful People Never Do

Meghna Tongiya Feb 25, 2020
Success is not hard to achieve. All you need to do is work in the right direction, follow the correct path, believe in yourself, and BINGO! You're on the path to success. The sky is the limit. DREAM ON!

Crib on Their Failures

Successful people never crib about their failures. They take failure in a positive way. They are not the ones who sit behind disheartened. Failures are never ever a setback for them.

Become Jealous

Jealousy is certainly not an attribute of successful people. They promote healthy competition, and are always enthusiastic to help whoever approaches them for guidance.

Seek Appreciation

Not everyone needs credit for what they do, and successful people certainly don't. Yes they do want to get praised for their work at times but they can go without getting it too.

Ghosts of the Past

Successful people are definitely not haunted by the ghosts of their past.
They are the ones who believe in living in the moment and making a better future. They have no regrets and don't keep pondering upon the mistakes they committed in the past. Instead, they learn from them, and make their present better.


Gossip is a strict no no for a successful person. They don't involve themselves in useless gossip going on at the workplace, nor do they believe in any rumor circulated around in the office.

Be Unbalanced

Successful people draw a line between their personal and professional life. For them, work and family are two distinct worlds, and they never merge one with the other.

Be Insecure

Insecurity never dawns upon successful people. They are never insecure about their job or performance. All they care about is their next deadline and how they are going to meet it.

Deaf to Criticism

Successful people are not thin-skinned towards criticism. They take criticism as an opportunity to learn and flourish.

Break Commitments

How much ever busy, you will never see a successful person breaking a promise ever. They are very strict regarding their commitments. They won't promise you something which they can't fulfill and once promised, they will never go back from their words.

Be Late

YES! One very important characteristic of successful people - they are never late. 8'o clock is 8'o clock for them. Not a minute late. Although, you can expect them to be ahead of the time.
