10 Habits To Achieve Success

Although it is easy to build new habits, it takes discipline, diligence, and the commitment to sticking to a plan for at most 60-90 days. Start small and focus on just one or two habits. Once you have established these habits, you can continue to add new ones as your life progresses.

These are the habits that successful people adopt into their daily lives. Your potential is unlimited if you make these habits a regular part of your daily life.

1. They work smarter and not harder.

Executives who are most successful spend 90 hours per week working. They look for ways to make their time more efficient.

This habit can be developed by identifying when you are most productive. Are you able to do twice as much work in the morning? Do you get a second boost after dinner? Find the time when you are most productive and set aside an hour each day to do a lot.

2. They are proud of who they are

Every person has their own genius, the type of work and thinking that makes them excel. People who are most successful know and value their genius, and they try to apply it every day.

This habit can be developed by reading the language that describes your genius every day. Then, say to yourself “I value who and what I bring to this world.” This should be done at least twice daily, for at least two months. It will not take long before you realize how great it feels.

3. They are always forming.

Even the most successful people will never settle for the status-quo. They continue to learn and look for new ways to improve.

This is how to create this habit. You can think about the skills or topics that you want to improve on, and then find books, videos, and classes that will help you take your knowledge to the next level. It’s hard work to complete these tasks, but it can be fun. You can reward yourself by taking on one per month.

4. They want to be happy at work

We all have moments when we feel unhappy or stuck at work. Or, maybe we suspect something is wrong. But, success people don’t let this paralyze their work. They are curious and start to look for data. Then they take action.

This habit is easy to create: First, identify what you like about your job. This will give you the information you need to take a proactive approach to your career.

5. They increase your confidence

Many misconceptions surround trust. Many people believe you either have it or you don’t. This is false. It is not true. Confidence can be a skill and those who are confident have had to work hard to attain it.

This habit can be developed by paying attention to what you are saying to yourself. Are you comparing yourself to others or punishing yourself for having difficult conversations? If you find that way, try it for a week. After you have identified the problem, try to give yourself a positive message such as “I am just as talented as my colleagues” or “We all make errors.”

6. Failures do not discourage them

Ask any successful person and they will all have a long list failures. These stumbling blocks do not discourage them; they teach from them.

How to make this a habit: It can be frightening, but you should start recording your failures as they occur – without judgment and blame. Write down everything that happens when things don’t go as you planned. Next, take a moment to reflect on what you can learn from this situation. You might be able to offer advice to someone in a similar situation if you have difficulty finding growth opportunities. You will soon see failure as an opportunity to improve if you do this for at least two months.

7. They are always open to receiving feedback.

The most powerful leaders don’t mind receiving feedback from their peers, superiors, and subordinates. If done right, feedback can also be a powerful tool for learning.

This habit can be developed by making a list with 10 people you know well or work closely with. Ask three questions specific to what feedback you are seeking.

You might ask, “What leadership qualities do you enjoy?”

Mention that feedback is important and that you will continue the process within a few months. Encourage them to do so and let them know you are open to reciprocating.

8. They love the process of working, not the results.

Society tends to be focused on success: getting promoted, landing a new client or making more money. It is better and more enjoyable to be involved in the work process than living for the successes.

How to create this habit: Ask yourself every day: “Does my work make me happy? Or do I prefer reaching the goals I set for myself?” If you answer “yes” instead of “no,” then you’re on the right path to happiness. You might be able to discover the reasons behind your accomplishments and what you can do to make it more enjoyable.

9. They don’t follow the rules of society, they create their own.

It’s all about being yourself, regardless of how different you may be from your friends or society. Your career and life will be happier and more fulfilling if you can make it a daily habit.

This habit can be developed: Write down all pros and cons every time you have to make a decision. To find out where these ideas came from, go back through them. Do they correspond to your beliefs? Or are they messages from your family, work, or society? Cross them off your list if it is the former. You will soon learn to trust yourself enough to make the right decisions for your life. Soon you will realize that your life is all about you and not others.

10. Health should be a priority

Remember that success is not about your job. It’s about you as an individual. If your health and well being are neglected, you will struggle to thrive.

How to create this habit: This is a common saying, but it’s worth repeating: Get enough sleep. Do your exercise several times per week. If you don’t meditate, get started.
