Common habits of successful people
Quora user and author Michal Stawicki says that, during research for his books on success, he discovered:
At the highest level of professional sports they consider skills and techniques a given. You can’t reach that level without them. What allows them to beat their opponents is not more time spent honing their skills, but more focus on perfecting their internal dialogue.
Meanwhile, research suggests that talking to yourself like you’d talk to someone else in the same situation can help you deal with stressful experiences. Specifically, use the pronoun “you” or your first name instead of “I.” For example, “You can do it, John.”
Yeole mentions that successful people “have some ‘me-time’ every day.”
According to Morin, the psychotherapist, mentally strong people don’t fear alone time because it’s a chance to reflect and replenish their energy. She recommends taking a few minutes every day to be alone with your thoughts to process what’s happening around you.
2.Wake Up Early
Notable early risers include Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Group, Disney CEO Robert Iger and Yahoo’s Marissa Mayer. Waking up early isn’t an easy habit to cultivate, though. I suggest you experiment with different techniques, but in general, the most effective ones are
3. Are big dreamers
To achieve unimaginable success in your business career, you must be ready to take huge leaps and dream big. This is something you would see in millionaires around the world. They have the potential to see impossible dreams and make it happen in no time. They do not like setting goals that are easily manageable or less challenging. They would always be ready to walk the extra mile to make their grand dreams come true.
4. Live each day as if it were the last.
Life is busy, it’s chaotic, and so you tend to want to focus on the future—we all do it, worry about what’s next. But while planning is important, so is living—being fully present.
Life is short, and there’s no guarantee as to when it will end. Successful people live each day as if it were their last and make the most out of each moment—and so should you.
When you look at a big goal, it’s common to get frustrated at the enormity of what you’re trying to accomplish. If you wake up each day determined to spend it forming good habits, you give yourself a better chance at success. So use these five habits as a starting place to build whatever a successful life means to you.
5.Make their health a priority.
What you eat and how much you exercise affects every area of your life. Successful people use their exercise as a time to reset and plan. And they make smart food choices that will give them the energy they need to accomplish everything on their daily to-do list.
6.Plan out their day/month/year before it begins. Every day, every month, every year.
It’s easy to get off track when you don’t have a plan. Without planning what your day will look like, you wake up not knowing what you want to do or accomplish. Successful people spend a little time the night before giving themselves clear goals for the next day. Then they wake up and go down their list.
Life doesn’t always work out as planned, but with a plan, you can adjust without losing momentum.
7.Don’t get distracted by other people.
Different people will have different views about you. Do not get discouraged.
Other people’s journeys to success can be inspiring; you can learn so much—about their mistakes, their victories, what to do, what not to do. But if you start comparing your progress to theirs, instead of using their stories as inspiration, you can feel jealous, stressed, unworthy.
Successful people realize their journey is unique and can’t be compared. So don’t get stuck in the comparison trap—stay focused on your why.
