"Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal;

nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude."

                          Thomas Jefferson

Investor's Business Daily spent years analyzing leaders and successful people in all walks of life.  Most have 10 traits that, when, combined, can turn dreams into reality."


  1. HOW YOU THINK IS EVERYTHING:  Always be positive.  Think success, not failure.  Beware of a negative environment.

  2. DECIDE UPON YOUR TRUE DREAMS AND GOALS:  Write down your specific goals and develop a plan to reach them.

  3. TAKE ACTION:  Goals are nothing without action.  Don't be afraid to get started now.  Just do it!

  4. NEVER STOP LEARNING:  Go back to school or read books.  Get training and acquire skills.

  5. BE PERSISTENT AND WORK HARD:  Success is a marathon, not a sprint.  Never give up.

  6. LEARN TO ANALYZE DETAILS:  Get all the facts, all the input.  Learn from your mistakes.

  7. FOCUS YOUR TIME AND MONEY:  Don't let other people or things distract you.

  8. DON'T BE AFRAID TO INNOVATE; BE DIFFERENT:  Following the herd is a sure way to mediocrity.

  9. DEAL AND COMMUNICATE WITH PEOPLE EFFECTIVELY:  No person is an island.  Learn to understand and motivate others.

  10. BE HONEST AND DEPENDABLE;  TAKE RESPONSIBILITY:  otherwise, numbers 1-9 won't matter.


Some people wonder why others are so successful while about the same age.  The above and the characteristics noted in the Millionaires Mind give the answer, if you are interested.
