Success with an Attitude (Part 1)
"The only place you find success before work is in the dictionary." May V. Smith
Some people seem to attract success and wealth like a magnet while others find them as elusive as a butterfly. What is the difference between the successful and the "not so successful?" Why do some people seem to "get lucky" so easily and so often?
Successful people have a certain attitude that convinces them that something great WILL happen eventually. That conviction gives them the courage and perseverance to keep going forward. Successful people do not quit after a few disappointments or failures. They view each disappointment or failure as a step closer to an objective. They do not take failures personally but view them as a fact of life.
Perseverance, that is, the steadfast pursuit of an objective or constant persistence, is one quality that separates successful people from others. Quitting is not part of their daily routine. Their life reflects a passion and a burning desire to succeed. They expect success to come their way eventually and they "get lucky" when their preparedness meets opportunity.
