We all go through ups and downs in life. Most of the experiences we encounter, either make us or break us. We can either learn from them or succumb to the uncertainty that lies around us. The choice is ours.
On the contrary, successful people view life with a different lens. For them, everyday is a new challenge and life is a risk they welcome with open arms. They are seldomly afraid and never look back. The only thing that matters to them is their own success and hard work; for which they are willing to give their 100%.
Our success depends on what kind of a person we wish to be. Around 80% of the people fail to achieve their goals because they do not have a clear vision of where they want to be. Purpose is one thread in the journey of life that makes us more of who we are; it makes us discover our true self. Purpose pulls. It makes us push our limits and tells us to never give up.

“I have learned that champions aren’t just born; champions can be made when they embrace and commit to life-changing positive habits.” – Lewis Howes
Here are 3 things successful people do that makes them who they are:
1. Being the best at what they do
Consistency and discipline are the keys to a successful and prosperous future. When we are determined, we do not let anything come in the way of achieving our goals.
Continuous improvement and practice is what makes successful people the best at what they do. They constantly improve themselves, read about stuff that matters, and never shy away from learning new things. This is one of the ingredients to their glory.
2. Not falling prey to the opinion of others
Someone once said, “If people are not laughing at you, your dreams are too small.” People who set out to do something different are most often ridiculed and criticized. The choice that they have is to listen to others and let them control what they do or simply move on and focus on their goals. Successful people focus on the latter. What the world thinks is none of their concern. People always talk otherwise.
“Habit is a cable; we weave a thread each day, and at last we cannot break it.” – Horace Mann
3. Learning from experience
We all encounter different kinds of situations in our lives. Some of us choose to fight while others choose to use the flight option. People who are made for success always fight; they learn from their mistakes and are constantly on the path of improving themselves. They do not stress over the past and find quick ways to move on. That’s what makes them always stay on-the-go and achieve success.
Successful people aren’t born or made, they create their own destiny. It’s always said that people who are successful are born with a silver spoon; which is just not true. Emerging from hardships and gathering the courage to pursue the best in life is worth the talk. Inspiration and motivation is all about finding new ways to live and never giving up. Life will always come with its own challenges and opportunities. We can only learn to live with them.
