What persistent people have in common?

One of the keys for a person to be success is mental toughness, which builds the foundations for long-term success. Delaying gratification, withstanding temptation and overcoming fear, all those qualities that support a person to become more successful, require mental toughness. The 7 habits of remarkably successful people are: always act as if you are in total control, put aside things you have no ability to affect, see the past as nothing more than valuable training, celebrate the success of others, never allow yourself to whine, focus only on impressing yourself, count your blessings.

The first habit here is taking control. It seems like successful people are favored by luck. That is because they always focusing on making things happen instead of putting energy into something that is out of their control. Secondly, the past does not define who you are, let go of it. A persistent person will learn from the past and the mistakes they have made in order to make sure that they will never make the same mistakes again. Moreover, stop complaining and be truly proud of others’ success, as the success of others should be motivation for you. The last key here is following your heart and being thankful.
