The 10 Habits That Keep Marriages Strong
Try these surprisingly simple practices to stay — or fall back — in love with your partner.
By Holly Corbett

1. Not trying to change each other
Maybe you wish he folded his socks, or that he would chat it up with your friends without prompting. But, his inability to notice hair in the sink may stem from the laid-back personality that drew you to him in the first place. "One of the things we see with happy couples is that they know their partner's differences, and have pretty much stopped trying to change the other pers...

Why are some people more successful than others? Why some feel accomplished while others feel like they are stuck in career rut? The answer is – their vocabulary. Though, granted, your vocabulary is heavily dependent on your mentality and the way you see your life, both personal and professional.

Here are the things you will probably never hear successful people say and the reasons why that’s the case:

It's impossible!
"This can't be done" is just not in their DNA. Successful people know that there is always a solution to any problem. Sometimes you’ll have to get creative, but there is no such thing as impossible. And when the goal seems too huge to accomplish, they tackle it in little pieces – they know that a lot of small steps eventually lead you to the top of the highest mountain.

I don't care!
Passion, on the other hand, is in their DNA. You will never hear innovators say "I hate my job!" or "I don’t care!" If you don’t have this key ingredient – passion coupled with vision – you will never be able to overcome challenges and take risks to push the envelope, innovate, and grow your business.

Stop asking questions!
Smart people know that there is no such thing as a "silly question." They know that as soon as curiosity halts and we stop asking questions, the radical innovation ends. Some of the most distinguished leaders, such as Steve Jobs and James Dyson, encouraged their teams to consistently question the way they should do things and challenge conventional wisdom. Their favorite questions are" "Why?" "Why not?" "What if?"

If you're single, I'm sure you've asked yourself more than once: "Why me?" As for the answer, chances are your friends and family may have been more than, ahem, generous in offering their opinions, and I'll bet that little voice in your head has had a say, too. But before you find fault in what you're doing on the dating scene, take a look at what you're thinking. You may simply be suffering from a slight spell of dating pessimism.

I look at dating this way: sometimes it's not about what actually happens on dates; rather, it's your explanation of what happened that makes all the difference in your attitude about love, your dating style, and the energy you're radiating in the presence of your matches. It's a theory that Martin Seligman, Ph.D., the father of positive psychology and author of Authentic Happiness, calls your "explanatory style." He says that pessimists explain their problems as pervasive ("No one likes me"), permanent ("I'll be alone forever") and personal ("I'm not gorgeous enough"). But you're far more likely to land in a great relationship if you're an optimist, which means it's time to start looking at your negative dating experiences as "atypical," "temporary" and "not about me."
