In listening to what successful people have been saying and what they haven’t been saying, it turns out they share a common attitude, while most people complain about the economy politics finances etc…
Successful people are busy taking action creating their success as you are listening to this list consider whether or not you say some of these things if you do you may want to work on shifting your point of view.
So here are 14 phrases you won’t hear successful people say:
1. My dreams and goals can wait
Most people overestimate what they can achieve in a week and underestimate what they can achieve in a year time is funny that way have you ever noticed one moment you can feel like you have ample time to accomplish things and the next moment realize that you’re running behind.
Successful people feel a sense of urgency a drive that propels them forward as though every day starts at zero and it’s a race to see what they can get done especially regarding their professional success because of this drive they act decisively and rarely procrastinate.
2. I’m completely overwhelmed
Successful people are very good at protecting their time and making sure they have enough energy to do the things that matter most, on the one hand, they are great at saying no when requests that don’t match their values and priorities arise.
On the other hand they say yes to things that give them energy and prevent burnout, carving out time for high-quality self care such as nutrition, exercise and sleep.
3. I already paid my dues
You won’t find a successful person sitting around complaining with an attitude of entitlement.
They understand life’s checks and balances, they pay their dues in a day in and day out occurrence, they have no problem rolling up their sleeves and getting a little dirty.
They find it satisfying because good old fashioned work create tangible evidence, that they’re one step closer to accomplishing their goal.
4. I don’t have enough time
You won’t find a successful person running out of time.
Because the fact of the matter is they like to get ahead of every game, take an average person for example.
Give them a task and one week to complete it often they will instinctively adjust their effort, so that the task actually takes the entire week to complete.
Now take a successful person they don’t let the confines of a deadline determine how long it takes to get things done, they use their time effectively, accomplishing tasks as quickly as they can.
While still maintaining quality and integrity when they finish early they use what’s left of their time to work on other tasks. they are excellent time managers preparing their future hours, weeks, months and years ahead they make time work for them instead of the other way around.
5. I don’t have the right connections
Just as kind people want to be around other kind people, hard-working people want to be around other hard-working people.
So why hang around with complainers, deadbeats or people that drive you nuts, you can blame them but the common denominator in this equation is you.
Whether these people are in your personal or professional life they’re there because you drew them to you and let them remain.
Think about the types of people you want to work with, the types of customers you would enjoy serving and the kinds of friends you wish to have, the choice is in your hands if you want to build the right connections you’re going to have to make a change.
6. I’m not lucky I never win or things never go my way
Successful people don’t wait for someone to feather their nest or give them the green, light they instinctively know that they create their own luck and opportunities by being prepared and keeping an optimistic mindset.
Being optimistic helps you stay clear minded and energized so that you can take steps in the right direction, as a result, more opportunities are naturally available to you.
7. I’ll do it later
just like most people successful people aren’t always in the mood to do everything on their to-do list, but instead of procrastinating they get in the mood and take action.
Because they focus on their goals and they understand that things only get done by taking action, successful people have a prioritization system they execute priorities of the highest importance and tasks that are not a necessity are either delegated or simply ignored.

You rarely catch a successful person indulging in a bad attitude, it’s simply too much of a time killer you can’t let one bad incident ruin all that is good.
