Habits Of Successful People

By | July 2, 2016

Do you have the same habits as  successful people? How can you tell? Are you successful now? How do you know?Habits of successful people

That’s a lot of questions to answer. If you are successful, you will know it and you will continue to strive to being more successful. If you’re  not, how do you cultivate those all important traits or habits and what are they?

Here are some traits to consider if you want to achieve success.

  • Do the important chores first thing in the day. It’s important to work when your mind is fresh. You will be able to accomplish more and do it better. Leave the unimportant things to others, if possible.
  • Keep an eye on your goals. Post them somewhere so you will see them frequently through the day. That will be a constant reminder what’s important.
  • Set priorities every day. Make a list of what you want to accomplish every day and try to complete it, even if it takes extra time. Check goals done so you can measure your productivity and accomplishments. This will give you a sense of satisfaction.
  • Take risks, financial, emotional, professional and mental. If it doesn’t work out, learn from it. What could I have done differently or better? Nothing ventured, nothing gained.habits of successful people
  • Have a plan. Don’t be helter skelter about getting successful. Make your plan and plan your work. Staying organized will help you meet your success goals. Try not to deviate from your plan.
  • Be curious. Don’t be afraid to explore different avenues, something better might be right around the corner. Don’t settle.
  • Successful people rarely complain about mistakes, they take their share of the responsibility for the outcome.They don’t blame others. That does not solve anything and is a waste of time. Put you energy to better use.
  • Successful people don’t wait for success to find them, they seek it out, by working harder and smarter.
  • People who are successful are always busy. You won’t see them laying on the couch watching sports or the latest t.v. show. Remember the football players don’t pay your bills.
  • They hang out and cultivate friendships with successful people that have the same mind-set.
  • They don’t procrastinate or find excuses to not do things. They don’t wait for success to find them, they go out and create the best life possible.
  • If you are unhappy in your job, don’t settle. Find what you want to do. Be your own boss, it’s not that hard to be self-employed.

Hopefully some of these habits you can incorporate into your own life and they will help you achieve the success you have been looking for.

Remember to enjoy the journey and much success to you in your future endeavors. It’s all in your hands. Only you can do this, so go for it.

    I once heard a quote that was something like “Success is a mindset”. Its so true as success is just an accumulation of successful habits. I think this is some great advice here.

      How true, Matt. It’s getting in that “good” mindset that takes some time to cultivate. Unless we are fortunate enough to have it instilled when we are young. Thanks for your comments, Deanna

    Great tips but I would add, not only do the important things first – I would do the hardest things first. It will make you more productive when you do the smaller things since you won’t be stressing over that hard thing – Its already done. So you can rest easy as you do the smaller, easier tasks throughout the day.

    The first and last habits on your list are the most important for me. This is great information to think about and a list we would all do well to implement. Really well done and thanks for providing it.
    Cheers, Peter

    Great post Deanna! Your list of pointers for success is something that everyone should come back to once in a while to remind themselves of the right behaviours and mindsets to uphold. Keep up the good work!

    Hi Deanna, thanks for writing such an informative post, I agree with everything you’ve written here. Habits are powerful and hard to break once you’ve built them, so you need to have the right ones. Success is not an accident, you have to have a goal, a plan to achieve it and be persistent when you encounter obstacles. One thing I find hard to do is not to make excuses as to why I didn’t achieve a goal, can you suggest anything that can help me with this?

      Hi Diego, Yes habits are hard to break and also hard to form. I heard it takes 3 weeks to change or form a new habit.I know what you mean about making excuses. I think you have to have a mind-set to not make excuses for yourself, but just plug ahead. NO EXCUSES!! Thanks for your comments, Deanna
