Do you have the same habits as successful people? How can you tell? Are you successful now? What are you willing to do to reach it, and will you know when you are there?
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. It can get contagious.
If you’re not successful, 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.
If you keep writing down your goals and never taking action on those goals, you will never be successful.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If possible, pay someone to do the minor chores. 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.
Write down 3 goals you want to accomplish each day
Plan on getting 3 goals done each day. ( not just started, but finished).
Start with the hardest goal first. When you are satisfied with that goal, start your second. Don’t start the second goal until you are completely happy with the first goal.
Follow the same procedure, don’t stop until you are completely satisfied with the outcome of that second goal and do the same thing with the third goal. Check your 3 goals over and make any corrections needed. What a great feeling this is to having completed this task.
That is all for today. Plan on doing the same procedure tomorrow. Rinse and repeat!
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.
Don’t quit until each goal is completed. Check goals done, so you can measure your productivity and accomplishments.
My son write down a list of things he want to get done, from mowing the lawn, cleaning the pool, to work related tasks and his list is on going and he crosses them off as they are finished. He is a very productive person. And may I add, very successful!
If you do this you will achieve an enormous sense of satisfaction.
Take risks, financial, emotional, professional and mental. If it doesn’t work out, learn from it. Just don’t jeopardize anyone ,else in the process.
What could I have done differently or better? Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Have a plan
Plan your work and work your plan. Don’t be helter- skelter about getting organized. 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 show.
Remember, the ball players don’t sign your paychecks or pay your bills.
They hang out and cultivate friendships with successful people that have the same mind-set and work ethic. That’s what we have to do, go that extra mile to achieve success. Sometimes it’s so close and we just quit before we reach the gold.
They don’t procrastinate or find excuses to not do things.
You have to put in your time and pay your dues.
How bad do you want it?
I don’t mean that you can’t enjoy life, you need to find a good balance, but if you want to be successful, you will definitely have to work for it. And the satisfaction you will have when you do achieve it.
So, don’t be afraid to try something, you never know what is right around the corner, success could be lurking there. Hard work and persistence will pay off, just give it a chance. And, never give up on that dream. You will be so glad you stayed with it and found success. It’s well worth it, trust me.
