And they always accept responsibility for their failures. But unsuccessful people blame others for their failures and blaming others solves nothing.
6. Successful people have a sense of gratitude. Unsuccessful people have a sense of entitlement. You will hardly catch a successful person talking about his or her successes. Instead he give others all the credit for their victories because he understand that great success is the outcome of a team’s hard work. They give importance to the assistance they get from others. Appreciating others for a good job done motivates them to work harder, and, consequently, makes successful people look better as a leader. While unsuccessful people use a negative tone with other people around them. Take all the credit from others and by so doing hide others’ successes which makes them a bad leader.
