Five Things Successful People Do

Success is not all about the level you started or the amount of money you have at hand, it is all about the mindset, the ideas and what you can do with whatever you have. There are things successful people do that unsuccessful people will never even think of doing. Let us look at the most essentials.

Below are five things that successful people do that unsuccessful people have might never even think of doing.


Successful people never do a business called mine; they only do a business called OURS. They understand the power of many and the power of unity and form companies. However, the poor operate individually and only for a season. While people may get sick and die, companies neither die nor become sick! There is a Chinese saying that says “What one strong man cannot do in one hundred years, will only take 100 ordinary people to do in three months”. This means that by pulling together you can bring the future to present.

The poor believe that a bank is the only place to keep their money, while the rich view it as a place to borrow money. To be a billionaire your mind must be activated to know what to do with the money. You can only own a Bank when you know the pain of borrowing.


Billionaires work with like minded people all over the world. They know the power of network and only speak one language of business. They follow the bible principle of scattering seeds in many waters.


Billionaires are risk takers. You cannot claim to be a risk taker when you are doing ordinary things. To be rich you must be willing to do what others are not willing to do.


Billionaires are very clear with what they see, they know clearly what they are looking for, and they clearly know where they are going. How far you see is how far you can go.

“The worst people to serve are the Poor people. Give them free, they think it’s a trap. Tell them it’s a small investment, they’ll say can’t earn much. Tell them to come in big, they’ll say no money. Tell them try new things, they’ll say no experience. Tell them it’s traditional business, they’ll say hard to do. Tell them it’s a new business model, they’ll say it’s MLM. Tell them to run a shop, they’ll say no freedom. Tell them run new business, they’ll say no expertise. They do have somethings in common: They love to ask google, listen to friends who are as hopeless as them, they think more than an university professor and do less than a blind man.
Just ask them, what can they do. They won’t be able to answer you. My conclusion: Instead of your heart beats faster, why not you just act faster a bit; instead of just thinking about it, why not do something about it. Poor people fail because on one common behavior: Their Whole Life is About Waiting.”
