I'm going to talk about something that showed up on Facebook and a lot of other Elektronik media this week. It was characteristics of successful and unsuccessful people. And rather than just look at it, I want to give my own perspective of my feelings about how they evaluate this. So I'm going to run each little category successful and unsuccessful and then tell you my feeling about it. Successful people read every day. Yeah, I read. Every day I skim. I mostly skim. I don't read a thing every day, so I guess I'm failing at that one. Unsuccessful People watch TV every day. I do watch TV every day. I believe that television is enormously useful at giving me different people's opinions. I mean, I watch the real people talk. I watch the news. I watch all these great shows that are on Netflix. I don't think TV is really bad, although I know that the millennials say they're not watching it as much as us older folks. But they're watching Netflix to successful. People embrace change. I do it. It's hard to do. I believe in serendipity, ease as those who follow me. No, I believe that change just makes things happen that you didn't expect that a very often good. Yeah, I'm a successful person. I embrace change. Unsuccessful people fear change. I feel change, but I push myself to get past it. If fear is blocking me from changed, it is possible or necessary. In my life, I try my best to just stop the fear or past the fear and get on with it. Successful people forgive others. I completely agree with that. Holding grudges Seems to me it just never gets me anywhere to stay angry. I don't see any value in it, so I don't do it. Unsuccessful people hold a grudge. Well, I do hold grudges when something is not being said that needs to be said. I feel if something is bad between me and another person, once you've said it, they could say what they think about me. I can say what I think about them. The grudge is gone, but it's pretty hard when there's no communication and I feel that something's going on. If something needs to be said, I guess I fail at that. One successful people forgive others. Yeah, I feel it's not worth holding a grudge. I feel grudges on Good for you. I feel that just holding on to something bad makes you feel bad. Successful people talk about ideas. I do endlessly. I love talking about ideas, and I find that when I share ideas, I understand them better myself. I have to verbalize them in order to understand them myself. Unsuccessful people talk about people I do. I talk about people all the time. I verbalized talking about people to understand more how I feel about those people. I don't think it's bad to talk about people. I think it's bad to gossip in a way that would hurt them. But I'm not doing that. I'm just trying to figure out what I think by talking to other people about other people. Successful people continually learn. Yes, I do that, but only if it interests me. I mean, if it doesn't interest me, I don't learn it. So I'm driven by one interest. Me unsuccessful People think they know it all. I don't ever think I know it all. There's always something I wanna learn that I don't know. Even in my core competency, which is making these films interviewing people, being a filmmaker, successful people accept responsibility. I do. It just makes me feel better. I accept responsibility. Even when it's not clear that it's my fault, it just feels better. Yeah, it's my fault. Once I say that, I could get on with it. Unsuccessful people blame others. I don't blame others. Even if they're playing. It just doesn't do me any good. I feel when I blame other people, like just then what do you do? If I blame myself? Done? It could do something about it. I could improve it, accept responsibility, just feels better. Successful people have a sense of gratitude. I practice gratitude because it makes me feel good and it gives me the chance to appreciate the ordinary people to appreciate the things that are around me. The person who helps me. The person picks the garbage up. The person who serves me the coffee, my wife, my colleagues, people who helped me gratitude. I really think that feels wonderful and I practice it in that way. I'm a very successful person. According to this paper, unsuccessful people have a sense of entitlement, never I don't ever feel entitled. I feel appreciative that I've been given an opportunity, like to talk to you. But entitled pick, I don't want it Successful people set goals. I set goals every day, every morning. I have a pad. I right on that pad, like today, I'm going to record this message to you. And if I don't do it when I put my head on the pillow at night, I don't feel good. I set goals, but then I evaluate during the day. Did I achieve at least some of the goals that I have set course. That means that I've got to sit goals that I can actually accomplish. Unsuccessful people never set goals. Sounds like fun, never setting goals like kind of being just floating. Except things don't get done. I'd like to try for two weeks, setting no goals and see what happens in my life. I wonder if it would be better. I'm scared to do that and I've never done it. So if you're trying to evaluate yourself and change yourself to improve yourself, to make yourself will likely to be a successful person rather than an unsuccessful person. This list is kind of interesting. I didn't feel that I achieved everything on every point. But I hope that my evaluation of myself has helped you with whatever you do with this piece of paper. Thank you for watching me. Good luck to you. David Hoffman, filmmaker.
