MANA Group Fundraising Share Negative Behaviors To Avoid For Success

NEW YORK, NY, January 2014 – People who love what they do for a living and have created tremendous success and reward, not only engage continuously in life-supporting (and generous) behaviors, but also avoid certain negative actions and mind-sets that other, less successful people habitually get lost in.

Here is a list of negative behaviors successful people avoid:

Engaging in “below the line” thinking.
 “Below the line” thinking refers to a particular mind-set that shapes how you view the world in a limiting way.  It leads to your believing that what’s happening to you is outside your control and everyone else’s fault – the economy, your industry, your boss, your spouse, etc.

Mistaking fantastical wishful thinking for action. Successful professionals pursue outcomes that flow organically from their current actions. Unsuccessful individuals attach to fantasies that may relieve them momentarily of their situational pain but have no basis in reality. Successful people develop huge goals too, but they crush them down into smaller, digestible (but courageous) action steps that they then build on, which leads naturally to the end goal they’re pursuing.

Remaining powerless and speechless. Successful people are in touch with their power, and are not afraid to use it and express it. They advocate and negotiate strongly for themselves and for others, and for what they care about, and don’t shy away from articulating just how they stand apart from the competition.

Putting off investing in themselves. Those who feel thwarted and unsuccessful are incredibly reluctant to invest time, money and energy in themselves and their own growth. They are comfortable only when putting other people’s needs ahead of their own. They’ll make any excuse for why now is NOT the time to invest in themselves or commit to change.

Resisting change. Successful people go with the flow. They follow the trends, and embrace them. They are flexible, fluid and nimble. They react to what’s in front of them, and improvise deftly.  Those who are unsuccessful bemoan what is appearing before them, and stay stuck in the past or in what they “expected,” complaining about how life is not what it should be and why what is feels so wrong.

Honoring other people’s priorities over their own. Successful people know what matters most to them – their priorities, values, concerns, and their mission and purpose.  They don’t float aimlessly on a sea of possibility – they are masters of their own ship and know where they want to head, and make bold moves in the direction of their dreams.

Doubting themselves and their instincts. Those who doubt themselves, lack trust in their own gut or instincts, or second-guess themselves continually find themselves far from where they want to be.  Successful professionals believe in themselves without fail. They keep going with hope and optimism, knowing that the lessons from missteps will serve them well in the future.

Searching for hand-outs and easy answers. Successful people are respectful, resourceful, curious, competent, tenacious, and they figure out how to get the help they need without asking for hand-outs. That doesn’t mean they don’t seek assistance when and where they need it , or make use of the many free resources available to them Successful professionals realize that if they’re not willing to pay for products and services they want, then others won’t be willing to pay them ( it works like karma).

They also know that their success is directly proportionate to the effort they put in (  Most of all, they understand there are no short cuts or easy answers on the road to success.
