8 Things Successful People Do And Why [infographic]

Goal setting is one of the best ways to think outside of the box and a sure way to get your motivation up. Although the fear of not completing a goal, not being good enough, or the fear of struggle will deter many from being the person they want to become. This is where success comes in.

To be successful, you have to be tenacious. You have to be driven by a purpose. You have to be fearless. Failure is a part of life, but it makes the winning so much sweeter. A true success will see that losing is really just learning what doesn’t work and how to succeed.

Successful people will work and work and work. Not everything comes easy and many times time and energy, maybe even blood and sweat are necessary to hit that milestone.

What I love about success is that it can be applied at any level. You can aim for that promotion. You can drop 20 pounds. You can choose not to get mad in traffic. Aim high and work backwards from there. This infographic has some really great tips for you that can be applied to almost anything in your life. Maybe you can even help another person in their success.

But remember…

Success is the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. When speaking about successful people, many minds go straight to people like the CEO, or the major leaguer, or the published writer. When in reality, YOU TOO are the success. [via]

The Psychology of Book Abandonment [infographic]

How much time do you invest in a book you can’t get into before you decide it’s time to cut your losses? What is your breaking point? Goodreads put together an infographic highlighting the top-five books abandoned by Goodreads’ users. Unsurprisingly, three of the five I have abandoned myself. But reading this infographic got me thinking a lot about the psychology behind an abandoned book.

I rarely abandon books; I feel defeated when it happens. In fact, before today I would have claimed that I always finish books–even if I hate them. I abandoned Eat Pray Love with one chapter to go, Fifty Shades of Grey 250 pages in, and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo after the first chapter. I haven’t read Casual Vacancy for fear of having an abandoned J.K. Rowling book on my record. All of these books were recommended to me. I am afraid that I tend to neglect books that are recommended and then lent to me to read. I generally read books according to where I am in life emotionally. If I am reading a book that I haven’t already created some prearranged attachment to based on the level of emotional support I need it to provide me at the time, I just can’t get into it.

What’s your stance on abandonment? Are you an always-finish-no-matter-what kind of person? Have you ever hated the main character of a book? Do you hide your book covers in the airport because your reading selection embarrasses you? And most importantly, has anyone (other than my sister whom I envy for her reading abilities) read Catch 22 cover to cover? [via]

The Evolution of the Geek [infographic]

First off, there are not enough infographics out there about Dungeons and Dragons, will someone send me one if they find a good one please? Second, screw this infographic. It started off really well with where the term “geek” came from, good deal! Then continues over to Geekus prime and onto computer geek; nothing is said about the computer geek, which is a very important geek, because he is what the internet geek is based upon!

Also, I am very annoyed by the book geek as I’m sure others are. Harry Potter, Narnia and Twilight are so general, all walks of life read those books, and the Lord of the Rings are perhaps more “geeky” but still very popular. What about Sci-fi books? Or old mediaeval times books? — So much more of a geek fest genre.

The artist got a little lazy on the “geek Chic” because these are not variants of geek chic, a theatre geek doesn’t dress that way to be ironic — a theatre hipster might. A food geek doesn’t dress that way either. These are more just hobbies people have. These are all things really upsetting me. I wouldn’t have had to complain about all this if someone had just made a decent D&D infographic.

By the way, I am playing my first game of Dungeons and Dragons today, and I cannot wait. Any advice will be appreciated.
