Monday Morning Motivation:
9 Things Successful People Do
That You Should Too!
Hey you guys..
Get up, get going, get BUSY! And happy Monday to you!
One week ago I was waking up in Appleton, Wisconsin where it was 11 below when I opened my eyes! I had a chance to speak to employees of Kimberly-Clark Corporation for their Black History Month celebration. I love speaking to groups like this because I always walk away with tons of new friends and this experience was no different.

(very cold) Wisconsin
As I was detailing my journey of the last decade or so, one of the things I said on stage was that I was going to make Good Enough Mother a success or die trying. After the speech, a soft-spoken gentleman came to me, grabbed my hand and leaned in. “You don’t have to die trying for something that has already happened.” And then of course, I cried like a baby.
You see sometimes it doesn’t feel as if I’m successful. I’m working harder than ever before. Like so many people, a lot of times there are more bills than money to pay them. And I get tired.
But I started thinking about what separates good from great; what do successful people know that the rest of us don’t? How are they doing it?
I look at some of the folks around me, people I admire and came up with up with a couple of ideas.
So here they are.. the things successful people make a habit of doing.. and you should too!
1. They Know Attitude Is Everything
Successful people know this is where it all starts. No matter what is happening around them, they know they have control over at least one thing; their attitude. Having a positive attitude sets the tone for success and attracts like-minded people. You know what the opposite does. So don't do it.
