Successful people never say, “It’s impossible.”

“I don’t care.”5 Things Successful People Never Say

Another phrase you will never hear is, “I don’t care.” Successful people are passionate about what they do. Having passion and drive is what sets achievers apart. 

“I can’t do that.”

Successful people never say, “I can’t do that.” They are natural problem solvers and will take whatever is needed to learn and achieve the desired outcome. 

“This is not my fault.”

Never will you hear successful people say, “This is not my fault.” They always take ownership of mistakes and never point out where others have fallen short. This shows great character and capacity to learn and grow.
