There are certain common factors that highly successful people seem to share. They will see opportunity where others see obstacles or failure. When they are faced with failure or rejection, they see it as an opportunity to learn something, and to improve upon themselves, where others see it as a stopping point. They are solution and not problem focused.
Successful people are the type who will not bring up a problem, unless they have already thought of a solution, or are ready to brain-storm to come up with one. Other people struggle and are not able to move past the problem, and this is what keeps them stuck in their current situation. They make good use of their time, and they rarely complain. They do not see the point. They simply deal with the issue at hand and keep moving forward.
