The first question that merits an answer is what makes an individual smart. Is it the abundance of facts that one can memorize? Is it the above average, or exceptional, IQ? Perhaps, it is the wisdom to make a sound decision at the crucial moment, or knowing how to make the best out of the bad situation.

Maybe it is the ability to take as many aspects as possible into consideration before deciding on the future course of action. It is probably a good combination of all the previously mentioned traits.

Of course, if someone is smart and successful, it is hard to pinpoint what exactly is responsible for that person’s success and wellbeing. Truth be told, it is far easier to notice what these smart people don’t do, and arrive to a conclusion as to what is to be avoided. As long as we circumvent these negative things, the rest will come naturally.

They don't overlook possibility to save money.

They don't rely on other people.

They don't act irresponsible.

They don't dwell on their mistakes.

They don't allow their past hold them back.

They don't loose sight of priorities.

They don't hesitate to learn from their mistakes.

They don't give up on their idea because people don't agree with them.

They don't talk recklessly.

They don't loose any opportunity to broaden their experience.

They don't back off from a good cause.

They don't waste their potentials.

They don't make enemies.

They don't allow their pride get in the way.

They don't put all eggs in one basket.

They don't take unnecessary risk.

They don't lie to themselves that everything will be easy.
