    What a great reminder. I was involved with a women’s bible study about having the courage to be grateful. this blog reminds me that I need to be more grateful and appreciate what is around me to be more successful in life.

    Very true, I do love this – it clearly demonstrates that if you simplify and bring everything down to reflecting our true selves as opposed to being someone we are not then success is simply waiting around the corner!

    successful blog. wish mine was… 🙁 how did you find so many people to follow you in such a short time? – about success. What do you define as successful? One would say the rich and famous are successful, the “one percent” . but they do not have success always by skill AND GOODWILL but by devious means.. often greedy means…..

      Is it just me or is it fucking annoying to keep getting e-mails to this post about a fucking reblog!!? Guys, stop reblogging shit and write your own posts. You’re not doing anyone a favor by reblogging.

  28. SaraPerringCoaching says:

    This image is so accurate. I wonder how many people though would admit or realise that they are mostly what is depicted in the right image. It made me question myself. Am I true to each of those points on the successful person image, or do I have lapses more often than I admit? It was a powerful reminder of how we should all strive for personal development because we often have an inflated impression of our true daily achievements. Thanks for sharing, and thanks for stopping by and liking my blog.

  32. clumsyfool says:

  48. Atilola David Abimbola says:

    Nice article! If we are drive by negativity,it will find it ways in our life,if we are drive with the positivity,it will also find it way.

  49. Jo Oldenburg says:

    I think this is a great poster, it is important to examine ourselves. People tend to think of success as material gains or achievements, but it is more about how we perceive ourselves and others. It is important to examine and evaluate ourselves in order to be successful.

    I really agree with the transactional perspective as negative/unsuccessful. If you only communicate one-way, you will go through life either talkign to your self or beside others. You will miss out on a lot of interesting views and perspectives becaue your hudgement will be in the way. I therefore think ‘listening to others’ or ’empathy’ should be included under ‘successful people’, because successful people are good at making other people feel heard.

    Do you think successful people are good listeners and more emphatic?

    Wow, I hugely appreciate the follow. You have an amazing blog, can’t believe I haven’t stumbled across it before. EXACTLY the sort of daily motivation I need.

  58. happy heuristics says:

    And one more Reblog at for this great post and poster. Inner “Successful people” act from an abundance/cooperation rather than scarcity/competition perspective. Besides being a great visual reminder, it acknowledges emotional intelligence as being ‘female’ energetically speaking. 😉 of course. Humor has not been outlined but when my daughter (8) read it she immediately commented on the gender emphasis. I can’t quite recapture it but it made me laugh out loud!

  59. anishchhabra says:

    Wooaah! This blog is pretty awesome. I really appreciate your work. Now i can judge myself better with this indicator and can compensate my corns. Thanks.

    1. Thank you! But don’t judge, use it as a guide for what to focus on.

      1. anishchhabra says:

        Yeah! you are right, Thanks as well… 🙂

    This Poster Coach Jeff, is awesome! Self-management in a nutshell. A great Visual. I like the gender politically correctness with the woman as the epitome of emotional intelligence.;)

    Great infographic! Thanks for sharing it!

  68. cloakedmonk says:

    I use this graphic all the time! I give it to youth that are incarcerated when I teach them about goals and visioning. I have another graphic you would probably like. I’ll see if I can find the online version of it and share with you.

    1. That would be great! Thank you!

    It all comes down to what we choose to do, how we choose to think. It’s a choice we make that no one can make for us. Thanks for the reminder! I like the illustration at the top.

  75. MichelleM says:

    I love this picture it does a great job of showing the difference between being successful and unsuccessful. Everything you do adds up and a makes a bigger impact than we may think! You must see yourself in a positive way for others to also. This was a great reminder!

  76. annieseddon says:

    Great illustration! We really need to examine ourselves daily to make sure we’re on track. Negative thinking can sabotage us if we let ourselves get caught up in it. If we want to live in a world that’s positive and peaceful we need to emanate that ourselves!

    1. Well said Annie!! Thank you!!

  78. asyadiaries says:

    Jeff, thanks a lot for sharing this Inforgraphic. The descriptions of the two sides help recognizing where we are and allow to chose to stay on the bright side of life. At times I catch myself on the “fearful” side and do not realize it immediately. This Infographic will certainly extend the time I pass on the ASYA side of life 🙂

    1. I’m happy it helped!!!

  79. daystopic says:

    I absolutely needed this today! Must keep in mind at all times that in order to reach success we must be successful people FIRST.

    1. I agree!! Thank you!

  80. innovativeinteriordesign says:

    I love this – thanks for the reminder! And thanks for stopping by my blog!

  81. tinkerbellproject says:

    First, thank you so much for all the likes and for following my blog. Wink! So appreciated! And yes, like you, I just can’t express enough how the conversations that we have with ourselves and with others impact the outcome of our stories. It really does seem to come down often to how we interpret the events in our lives as opposed to simply “what happens”…. great blog here! Thanks for helping to make our lovely planet an even more joyful place!

    1. Thank you so much!!! You’re right, we can’t always control what happens but we can always control what it means to us! And we should all choose wisely!

  82. Rebecca says:

    Thanks for following my blog and liking my post “OK. I’m mad!”

    I love this post. It is right on. On one of my blogs “depressionsgift”, I’ve touched on many of these same points. I’m always amazed at how simple steps can make such a big difference to our emotional well-being. Am going to reblog this tomorrow.

    1. Read it daily!!! Thank you Rebecca!!!

  83. robmarks says:

    This is a good reminder to evaluate every aspect of who we are and how we operate. I often tell the team I lead to look for solutions instead of focusing on the problem but it really goes further than that.

    1. I agree, it’s important to give our teams and co workers not just the concept but the practical details as well!

    2. jameseck says:

      Even when days like today I just seem to not be very successful, seeing this helps try to determine what exactly about my demeanor is impeding my success.

      1. I’m grateful it was able to help!!! Thank you!

  84. Tanyah Barnes says:

    I love this post. I agree; I am what I say I am or at least the sum of what I show to others. This can be both positive and negative. Which supports the need for constant self-reflection, encouragement, and empowerment, if intrinsically motivated or a good role model/mentor/friend, if extrinsically motivated.

    1. Yes!! Sometimes it’s tough to think before we speak, but if we don’t it’s like shooting before we aim!! I need the reminder too!!! 🙂

  85. johnlmalone says:

    it’s a terrific indicator esp if you apply it to your field of endeavour which in my case is short story/novella writing. and thanks btw for following my blog. I endeavour to make my posts entertaining and instructive. Where they fall short, I take them off. Every post has to earn its right to be there

    1. Sounds great! Thanks!

  86. Love the “have a sense of gratitude” indicator–so true! In fact, that is one of our company’s 5 Core Values. Thank you for reminding us about all the small things that make a big difference! 🙂

    1. Anytime!! I’m glad it could help!!!

  87. chadali says:

    We should always promote and express our positive aspects with our friends, family, coworkers, and strangers! A positive gesture could always brighten someone else’s day!

  88. ravensquillz2013 says:

    I loved this reminder of positive output. You mention that these small things add up and I completely agree. On days when I feel depleted, or the shadows of insecurity come out to play, I still receive feedback akin to, “You are just so confident, how do you do it?” I think that when we program our attitude to reflect our core empowerment, it does add up and can often carry us through both the ups and the downs equally. Just a thought from someone who had a bit of a bumpy day and still came out dancing. 🙂 Thank you for this post!

    1. I agree completely, taking control of our attitude is what will allow us to be strong for ourselves and others! Thank you for the comment! And keep dancing!!!
