Winner vs. Average

These last few days I’ve been thinking about how someone becomes successful at life? I’m not talking about how society measures a persons success by how much money someone makes, their education, their IQ, who they know and how many friends they have, what their career is, their material collections, where they’ve been, this all seems insignificant. After all, these are just some of the effects that come into one’s life when practicing this mindset. I’m talking about the things people do on a regular basis to be great at life! We live in a world where we are so attached to our possessions, we put meanings on things that are not important or looking for a quick fix to feel better than the current state we are in. So I made a list of the two traits that differ between a winner’s mindset vs. average mindset. It’s good to see these qualities on paper. I’m sharing this with you not to make you feel bad about yourself, but to move you in a direction to succeed. By no means am I perfect, I’m guilty of having an average mind. I just don’t want to feel trapped there and I definitely do not want to be average. This list inspires me to take better action and make better choices. I hope it inspires you to do the same.

Please share any if I’ve missed. I’d love to hear more examples.
