In solving problems, successful people are always looking for solutions. Meanwhile, people who fail to always find fault with the environment. How do you think?

Wow..You know, any other time I would have ignored what you wrote, but this is speaking to me. If I am going to be successful in revising my book, I have to "start looking for solutions" to the distractions that is slowing me down. Thanks hsofyan, I will no longer look at the environment as something to find fault with, but will look for alternatives for the peace and quiet I need...

Hi Carmelanirel, nice to meet you. I got goosebumps reading your comments. I was touched that this discussion could be useful, especially for you. May you succeed in revising your book. I pray for it.

@ Rajanitishnaik: We are happy if our friends can be successful. That was enough. That's right?

Wow, didn't know it was that good..lol Rajanitishnaik, if you only knew the struggles I have had trying to revise this story before school starts next month, you wold probably understand why i said what I said. Hsofyan, thank you for your prayers, I really believe this will be a breakthrough for many and perhaps that is why I am struggling, the enemy doesn't want this book published, but I think G♥d does. It will help clarify my beliefs, hopefully help women who feel trapped, and also entertain readers.

I think that people are alway trying to succeed, but sometimes what they went through gets in the way. It is as if they are programmed to fail. So they will succeed to a point, but the things go wrong. I do think it has to be with encouragement or lack therefore, or someone putting roadblocks in their way, whether physical or mental such as telling them, "you are go stupid." And then there are those who block them p;hsyically from doing so, sort of like when an adult tells a child, never mind I will do it myself. It takes a lot of courage to overcome the negative feedback from others, but ti can be done.

Yes, I believe there are people who intentionally dropped. It takes a better self-control. Not all criticism is good. Accept constructive criticism.

Completely agree with you That is why successful people always has more failures than others because they tried until they succeed while the other avoid the problem

Well, I just realized, that successful people often get into trouble, because they always want to find a solution. Thanks for sharing.

I also feel that some successful people create the problem but smart enough to cover it and then rush in and be the hero . Some people who fail can just be too honest with morals that just result in them failing in society eyes but they are walking upright in heart . While it can be the other way also , successful people cleaning up mess made by people who fail . So the result is one cannot exist without the other .

Great words. "Successful people cleaning up the mess made ??by people who fail". What if the opposite: "the person fails to disrupt the plans of successful people". Or successful people don't care about the attitude of people fail? Thanks for sharing

Hi friend, i agree, the person who failed will search for the reason and excuse for his failure and successful person get pride with his victory. Our success and failure depends up on our work, it don't based on the environment or other things

Hi, hsofyan: Successful people, are the people who benefit from their mistakes and make every effort to avoid falling in the future. Those who are planning for their future, and learn from the experiences of others, and they have always been the spirit of optimism and hope of success. And that such persons to be balanced in all aspects of their lives, so as not to reap success in one of the aspects of their lives on the interest and the expense of the other side. The basis for true success is love, love the work itself makes us innovate and succeed in his performance, as well as to love those who work and cooperate with them in this work My best regards

Learning from mistakes, optimism, love and cooperation. Nice words. Just don't blame anyone else if it fails. Thanks for sharing.

i think its all in the genes of a person. great people are born positive.. they are born with a never say die attitude..so while a person can learn to be positive, if one is naturally that ways, it helps.. an average person depends on his circumstances for his development, growth and so on.. they don't make things happen. they wait for things to happen. that's why while the negative lot sees the half glass empty, the positive lot thinks of how to fill up that empty part and enjoy the full glass.

That's what I mean by looking for an excuse faults environment. When a job breaking rocks with a small hammer, they said: "The stone is too hard, not impossible to solve". While successful people will look for a bigger hammer.

I agree that the people who often find success in life are the ones who try to make the most of the situation that they're in, and the ones who try to find ways out of their problems. I am trying to be more optimistic about everything in life, and since doing that I have found that I have been much more successful because I am seeing things in a completely different light. I have a friend who is always wondering how they aren't able to be a success, and I think that it is because they do nothing but find faults in the things that happen to them.

Yes, optimistic that the problem will be solved. Think and act for it. Just do it. Not trapped in a "can not" or "difficult". It takes a strong will.

Yeah, successful people always see the positive side in things. They see opportunities in the things they do and they will immediately grab that opportunity making them successful. It is all about mind setting. You will surely feel successful any situation that you are in if your perspective is that you are successful. Mind over matter. That is the unique power of the mind.

Wonderful discussion topic. Solutions lie within and the person with strength of character would always try to seek them within; we make so many mistakes in life and awareness of these mistakes after failure makes us think of ways and means of success. Instead , there are some people who can 'never do wrong' and for them it is always A, B, C, D who is the cause of their misery and also the environment.It speaks of weakness and inefficiency.

yeah i agree with you. successful people succeed. becuase they have good habit, they work hard and they never give up, they meet problems and beat them. when they failed they will find what wrong they did instead of giving up, but people who failed is easy to feel they are useless and they don't want to try their best to succeed any more. if you want to succeed you should keep good habits.

Dear hsofyan, I think a person's ability to solve problems has alot to do with their attitude. Like you, I believe that a person with a positive attitude will be more successful solving problems than a person whose attitude is negative and critical. Have a great day!
