Successful people tend to see things differently. Where others see obstacles, they see challenges to meet and overcome. Their confidence comes from letting go of negativity and focusing their attention on their own actions and attitude. Below are five challenges that successful people overcome.

Negativity-Your day may not always be great but you have the same 24 hours as everyone else. Instead of complaining about what you don’t like, focus on what you love. What you feed, grows.

Toxic People-You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with so choose wisely. Great people see your full potential and help you reach it. Toxic people drag you down with them.

Your Fears-Danger is real. Fear is an emotion that’s driven by your imagination. Although it is hard to remember at times, fear is a choice. Yes, it’s an uncomfortable feeling, yet successful people practice getting over their fears. Find one small step you can take today even though you feel scared. It will build your confidence.

Being Out of Focus-Focusing on the past or the future won’t change either one. Instead, be present and focus on living your life today. You will access all your potential by keeping your head where your feet are.

The Uncontrollable-Another part of being present is focusing on what you can control. You can’t change the state of the world but you can change how you think about it. Focusing on the good, the positive, and the things you are grateful for helps you improve your own life and the lives of those around you.

Being aware of and overcoming these five obstacles takes work. Successful people practice by taking one small step every day. You can, too.
