10 Things Happy And Successful People Never Say

10 Things Happy And Successful People Never Say

Have you ever thought about how your attitude may be affecting your outlook on life? A good way to start making progress in your life and your goals is by becoming more positive about life.

Here are 10 things that happy and successful people never say.

1. “It’s impossible to do that.”

Believing that what you want to do is impossible is something that happy and successful people never do. You should be looking for how to make your dream or goal a reality. If you have faith, then it can be done.

2. “I’m not in control of what I do.”

Many people who feel that they can’t reach their goals believe that their goal is unattainable because other people are in control of whether or not they can be successful. However, you should not think this way and you should do what needs to be done in order to feel like you are in control of your destiny.

3. “I’ll have time later to reach that goal.”

Many people might think that they can just put their goals/dreams off to the side and attempt to reach them later. However, don’t always think that you will have time. Before you know it, life will flash before your eyes and you will probably wish that you would have tried earlier.

There’s no better time than now.

4. “I’m afraid of failure.”

If you never attempt your goals because you are afraid to fail, then you have already failed. Failure may be in the back of your mind, but it should never stop you from attempting to reach for your goal.

5. “There’s no point.”

If you have been working really hard to reach your goals, then at some point during the process you may start feeling overwhelmed. You might think that there’s no point. However, people who are happy and successful persevere through less-motivating times and work to reach their goals.

6. “It’s too late.”

You might think that you are too late to reach a goal because of your age or something else that has happened in your life. However, don’t let something stop you just because you wish that you would have done it earlier.

7. “I’m tired.”

In order to reach your goals, it will probably take a lot of work. If everything was easy in life, then you would probably never truly enjoy reaching a goal because it really wouldn’t be a goal.

8. “I don’t want to do any extra work.”

If you want to reach your goals and be happy and successful with your life, then you will most likely have to put in extra work to reach your goals. If everything was easy and no extra work was needed, then it probably wouldn’t be much of a goal. You will most likely have to put the extra hours in and really work hard in order to get what you want in life.

9. “No one will help me.”

A happy and successful person won’t wait for others to help them to reach their goals in life. They will take action and will either do things themselves or know who to look for in order to get help.

10. “I don’t know what to do.”

Sometimes when you create a new goal for yourself, you might think that you don’t even know where to start. You may be completely scared to even start your goal because sometimes it can be a lot to think about. However, you can’t let this very early step in reaching your goals stop you from even starting your goals. You will need to make a realistic plan for how you will reach your goal.

This Is What Happens When You Move Out Of the Comfort Zone

This Is What Happens When You Move Out Of the Comfort Zone

The pursuit of worthwhile goals is a part of what makes life enjoyable. Being able to set a goal, then see yourself progress towards achieving that goal is an amazing feeling.

But do you know the biggest obstacle for most people trying to achieve their goals, the silent dream killer that stops people before they ever even get started? That obstacle is the comfort zone, and getting stuck there is bound to derail any efforts you make towards achieving the goals you’ve set for yourself.

If you want to achieve those goals, you’ll have to break free from your comfort zone. Let’s take a look at how your life will change once you build up the courage to leave your comfort zone.

What Is the Comfort Zone?

The comfort zone is defined as “a behavioural state within which a person operates in an anxiety-neutral condition, using a limited set of behaviours to deliver a steady level of performance.”

What stands out to me the most about that definition is the last part: “using a limited set of behaviours to deliver a steady level of performance.” How many successful people do you know who deliver a steady level of performance?

The goal in life is to continually challenge yourself, and continually improve yourself. And in order to do that, you have move out of your comfort zone. But once you do, your life will start to change in ways you could never have imagined. I know because it’s happening right now in my own life.

Here’s what I’ve learned.

1. You will be scared

Leaving your comfort zone isn’t easy. In fact, in can be downright terrifying at times, and that’s okay. It’s perfectly normal to feel a little trepidation when you’re embarking on a journey that forces you to try new things.

So don’t freak out or get overwhelmed when you feel yourself getting a little scared. It’s perfectly normal and all part of the process. What’s important is that you don’t let that fear hold you back. You must continue to take action in the face of fear.

That’s what separates winners from losers.

2. You will fail

Stepping out of your comfort zone means you’re moving into uncharted territory. You’re trying things that you’ve never tried before, and learning things you’ve never learned before.

That steep learning curve means you’re not going to get everything right the first time, and you will eventually fail when you move out of your comfort zone. But as long as the failures aren’t catastrophic, it can actually be a good thing to fail because …

3. You will learn

Failure is the best teacher. I’ve learned more from each one of my failures than I have from each one of my successes. When you fail small, and fail often, you rapidly increase the rate at which you learn new insights and skills. And that new knowledge, if applied correctly, will eventually lead to your success.

4. You will see yourself in a different way

Once you move out of your comfort zone, you immediately prove to yourself that you’re capable of achieving more than you thought was possible. And that will change the way you see yourself.

Moving forward, you’ll have more confidence in yourself whenever you step out of your comfort zone, and that increased confidence will make it more likely that you continue to step outside your comfort zone. And each time you do, you’ll prove to yourself again and again what you’re really capable of.

5. Your peers will see you in a different way

Whether we want to admit or not, people judge other people. And right now, people view you in a certain way, and they have a certain idea of what you’re capable of. That’s because they’ve become accustomed to seeing you operate in your comfort zone.

But once you move out of your comfort zone, you’ll prove to other people, as well, that you’re capable of much more than you’ve shown in the past.

The increased confidence other people place in you will bring about more opportunities than ever before.

6. Your comfort zone will expand

The good thing about the comfort zone is that it’s flexible and malleable. With each action you take outside of your comfort zone, it expands. And once you master that new skill or action, it eventually becomes part of your comfort zone.

This is great news for you because it means that you can constantly increase and improve upon the behaviors that you’re comfortable with. And the more tools and skills you have at your disposal, the easier it will be to achieve your goals.

7. You will increase your concentration and focus

When you’re living inside of your comfort zone, the bulk of your actions are habitual: automatic, subconscious, and requiring limited focus.

But once you move out of your comfort zone, you no longer rely on those habitual responses. You’re forced to concentrate and focus on the new action in a way you never do in your comfort zone.

8. You will develop new skills

Moving out of your comfort zone requires that you develop new skills. One of the many benefits you’ll experience is that you’ll be stepping away from the “limited set of behaviors” and start to develop your ability and expertise in new areas.

Living inside of your comfort zone only requires a limited skill set, and those skills won’t contribute much to your success. Once you can confidently step outside of your comfort zone and learn a new skill, there’s no limit to how much you can achieve.

9. You will achieve more than before

With everything that happens once you move out of your comfort zone, you’re naturally going to achieve more than ever before.

Your increased concentration and focus will help you develop new skills. Those new skills will change the way you see yourself, encouraging you to step even further out of your comfort zone.
