Today's reality is that in order to be a successful person, you must not only possess physical strength and endurance but also be strong in spirit. What avoid strong-willed people.
1. They do not spend time on self-pity
You will never see that they complain that the circumstances were not the best way, or that someone had dealt with them dishonestly. They learned to take responsibility for the decisions that you take and the results they get in the end and understands that life is often unfair.
They come out of difficult situations with a clear understanding of what they have done wrong, and gratitude for the lessons received. When they have something did not work, they say "next time".

4. They do not spend their strength on what cannot change
They do not complain about the traffic or that they lost your Luggage. They do not complain about other people, because I understand that other people beyond their control.
They realize that there are situations when the only thing they can control is their own attitude and reaction.
5. They do not tend to be good for everyone
You know the people who are trying to please everyone? Or people who are willing to sacrifice their own interests in order to please others? Neither of these behaviours is not proper.
A strong-willed person tries to be kind and fair. He can say something that will please others, but he is never afraid to genuinely Express their point of view. Even if he knows that expressing an opinion might offend someone, he'll do it anyway.
6. They are not afraid of justified risk

7. They don't procrastinate their past
To let go of his past, to admit that there were mistakes that will not fix it, not everyone can. But strong willed people capable of doing it. They know that to complain about your past or cherish it useless. Instead, they throw all their forces to make their present and future as best as possible.

We all know what the definition of insanity, isn't it? It's when every time taking the same actions and take the same decision, hoping that the result will be much better than last time.
Mentally strong people accept responsibility for their actions in the past and are willing to learn from their mistakes not to repeat them in the future.

Only a strong man can sincerely rejoice in others ' success. Strong willed people are able to do it, they are not jealous of other people's victories, and work hard on ourselves to become the best.
10. They don't give up after failure
Every setback is a chance to be better. Many successful people are willing to admit that their first steps on the road to success was difficult and brought many disappointments. Strong-willed people prepared for what they will have to suffer a lot of defeats, but they also know that every failure will bring invaluable experience and lessons that will bring them closer to victory.
11. They are not afraid of loneliness
Strong people know how to enjoy solitude and know how valuable. They use this time to ponder and plan.This does not mean that they avoid the company of other people or do not need it at all, but they are self-sufficient: their mood and happiness are not dependent on other people.
12. They know that the world owes them nothing.
Strong-willed people know that, despite their qualifications and achievements, the world does not owe them anything: neither a large salary, nor a social package, nor a comfortable life.
They realize that if they want to get at least something, they need to plow every day.
13. They do not expect immediate results.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s training, diet, or the beginning of a new business — spiritually strong people initially set themselves up for the long journey. They competently spend their time and energy and never forget to mark their results at each stage. They are hardy and understand that standing changes come over time.
