Attitude towards life is the difference between success and failure. Those that are more successful are always optimistic, they exhibit positive characteristics.

They are happier and more enthusiastic about life. They carry an aroma of positivity and are always looking forward to the next challenge.

Whereas, those that are less successful are negative minded and are less enthusiastic about life. They are generally, less ambitious.

It is, therefore, a given that if you have to be successful you must develop a much more positive attitude towards life. You must always have the zeal for taking your life to another level.

You must never be “content” with what you have and where you are, you must always be on the lookout to maximise the available opportunities that will help improve your life.

What then do you need to drive your motivation? Well, for starters you need to replace the attitudes that are bringing you down with the following:-

Do the Best With Your Ability

We are all gifted differently and believe me you have more talent and ability than you think you have. They say the biggest obstacle to your success is yourself.

We limit ourselves by thinking in a box; by thinking that we do not have enough ability to succeed.

Winners on the other hand don’t go into games with a second-best or not good enough mentality.

They go into games with the sole purpose of winning. They have a champions mentality and attitude. They refuse to concede defeat.

Instead, they learn from their mistakes when confronted by failure. They take opportunities with both hands.

It is important that you do your very best with the opportunity that you have been given because your destiny is dependent on how well you handle your current opportunity.

The lessons learned now could come in very handy as you progress with your life. They may not seem to be as much for now, but they could be valuable in the near future.

Take Responsibility for Your Actions

Personal growth and self-improvement are about taking responsibility for your actions, not only the good ones but also the not so good ones. The ones you would want to hide from people.

You cannot grow when you do not take responsibility because success comes with responsibility. If you do not want to be responsible you have no business seeking success.

Because the more successful you are, the more responsibility you take. Accepting responsibility is an attitude that should be developed.

Most of the time people do not want to take responsibility for their actions. They are always looking for someone to blame when things have gone wrong or are going the other way.

They only want to take responsibility when things are good or are going the right way.

Unfortunately, life demands that we take responsibility for every action that we make and face the consequences of those actions.

The attitude of taking responsibility is a sign of maturity and takes your leadership skills to another level.

Taking responsibility makes you accountable. When you are accountable you are conscious of what you do. You take actions that will not negatively affect your life.

Have Faith in Your Abilities

If only you can believe in your abilities the sky is not the limit. If you want to achieve even more with your life, develop the attitude of believing in your abilities.

Trust what you can be and what you can do. The more you trust in your abilities the more likely you are to improve on them.

The more likely you are to take in more complex and demanding tasks that are even more beneficial to your success.

Having faith in your ability is the first step to almost guaranteeing your success. The measure of faith you have in your abilities will drive you to keep moving forward.

Because of your faith, you will treat failure as a temporal setback. You will rise up even higher when you fall and nothing will stand in your way.

Be Prepared for Victory

When you are working on something, be sure that you are expecting to win. We fail to handle victory because we are not prepared for it.

Most of the time we are not even expecting to be victorious. Successful people are always prepared for what’s coming and they know that victory is coming.

How prepared are you to face victory? What will you do when you succeed? Bear in mind that victory does not just come it is earned.

You don’t just wake up and BOOM you are victorious, no, you work hard for it and most of the times victory does not just come at the first attempt.

It takes a lot of patience, persistence and smart hard work to achieve good things. Look, if it was easy to be successful we would all have been successful, each one of us.

Your desire should be to win and you should develop a winning mentality and a never give up attitude.

Don’t Doubt Yourself

Doubt is a negative emotion or feeling. When you doubt you attract negativity.

To achieve positive results you need an attitude of self-belief. Self-belief is what fuels your motivation to do even more.

You should believe in yourself for everything that you are doing and intend to do.

Doubtful thoughts must not be allowed to dominate or cloud your mind. Stay focused and concentrate on the task at hand.

To eliminate doubt in your life try this principle “if you think you can do it, just do it.” The more you do, the more confidence you develop.

What you want in life is to be confident with yourself. To be confident that you are doing the right thing and are on the right path to success.

Challenge Yourself to Do More

Success is measured by the many challenges one has overcome. The more challenges you overcome the more successful you are.

Life is generally full of challenges. We are constantly navigating through challenges every day. But if you want to achieve more with your life you need to challenge yourself to do more than the average person.

You are only as successful as your previous challenge nothing more and nothing less. Every new day comes with it many different challenges and the onus is on you to overcome them.

Your responsibility as a human being is to have an attitude of doing more with your life. Look, if you can move from point A to point B then you can move to point C and point D.

If you stop at point B you will never see and experience point C and beyond. There is more to experience out there. When you keep pushing yourself, you will definitely achieve more with your life.

When you move from one point to another, you have the chance and are privileged to experience the goodness of that place for as long as you possibly can.

The biggest difference between the less successful people and the more successful ones is that the former have developed an attitude to keep challenging themselves to do more.


In everything that you do, the attitude, you exhibit will always be a driving factor in determining how far you will go in achieving your intended life’s purpose.

You must, therefore, endeavour to develop a positive attitude for your life. Until next time develop the attitude of a champion.
