The people that we know to be successful have that reputation for a reason. Apart from being hard workers, they stand out from others in a very significant way. You can even say that such people are a different breed and made up of a load of unique ingredients. Success is not inherent and you, too, can find yourself in that category of exceptional individuals. In order to become a successful person in anything, you must understand what it exactly takes to be so. The one, most important thing that all highly successful individuals possess is a winner's mentality. It makes sense, right? In order to win, you must have the mindset of a winner. How can this be achieved? Firstly, you must clearly define what you want. You must establish your goals and prioritize. Think about what is most important for you to achieve. Once you do this, you must take consistent action towards that goal. Winners know that setting goals is only half the battle; the work still needs to be done, and it is through action that you can accomplish whatever it is that you want. A critical element of action is consistency. Success does not come with intermittent actions; it is a result of repeated dedication. With a winner's mentality, you must understand that you must stay positive even when the going gets tough, because it is usually through challenges and hardships that people give up. We all know that winners never quit, and that couldn't be truer. When you find yourself lacking the motivation to keep going, remember why you started in the first place. Winners have a purpose, and when creating goals for yourself, you must always have and refer to a purpose. A final component of developing a winner's mindset is to let go of fear of failure and to learn to take risks. A majority of people is hindered by a fear of failure and judgment of others. The winners in life could care less what people think of them. They are concerned with accomplishing things for themselves and even for others. They take risks even if things might not work out as they hoped they would. When this happens, and trust that it will happen at some point, remember that truly successful people move on, learn from their experiences and keep working towards their goals. While developing a winner's mentality is easier said than done, take important consideration of these tips and be aware of how you can incorporate them in your daily life. You'll be able to see that you can apply them to anything in your life, and by consistently using them you'll start to see success.

Why just stop after one movie?

The biggest scenes in the biggest show.
It's the oldest story in the world: one day a new tv show comes on and you fall in love with each character and their story. In 2003, the show "One Tree Hill" was born and stole the hearts of fans of many ages. Torn between the sweet, underdog Lucas and tough, popular boy Nathan, people became hooked through the family and relationship drama the characters went through.

"Kim, there's people that are dying."
"Keeping Up With The Kardashians" is coming to an end after 20 seasons of intense drama, family bonding, and Scott Disick. It's sad for some and a relief for others who find the show way overhyped.

The new purse essential just got a serious upgrade.
What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.
It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.
These helpful pups make college WAY less stressful.
The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.
Law Librarian Blair Kauffman stated that the free, three-day pilot pet therapy program at Yale Law Library launched as "a positive addition to current services offered by the library."
As told by a Dunkin' employee herself.
I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.
Coping looks different for everyone, but it IS possible.
Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.
But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
The strategy that (kinda) never fails.
Who doesn't love a fun, classic game of "Clue"? Whether you're a seasoned professional or just think that Professor Plum is the philosophy prof in the building across campus, you may learn something from the following trial-and-error strategy that has taken years (read: a couple of games) to perfect. Instead of partaking in an argument about how Colonel Mustard's name is pronounced, start strategizing and don't let the die determine your fate!
