Have you ever wondered what makes “Successful People” – Successful?
It’s not about the money – it’s about the lifestyle they have formed.
I believe you become successful not when you have a lot of money, but when you can live with money, you have made doing what you love.
We are all talented in one way or another, and if we only change one thing in our lives, we can change ourselves forever.
Sometimes I tend to watch a bunch of movies with the same actor, to see him grow. I like to analyze how people change themselves for the past few years.
Let’s talk about the most common and best Habits of Successful People, and find out how they become who they are.
1. Comfort Zone
How often do you come home from school or work and sit down to relax and watch TV or Youtube videos? Well, I do, and I think you do it too.
I found out that: To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.
Seek discomfort, and only then you’ll be able to get better at what you are doing.
Rather than watching TV all evening, go out of your comfort zone.
The Comfort Zone is a trap. It’s a place and time when you feel nice, but you are not improving, you aren’t doing anything to get better.
If you are not moving forward, you are moving backward.
“Sharks are hunters and predators. They never stop swimming. In fact, if a shark stops swimming, it will die. If the shark goes backwards, it will die.
Think like a shark, act like a shark, and behave like a shark.”
– Walter Bond
Get out of your comfort zone and start doing what you are supposed to do, or you will be stuck in the same place you are now.
The lesson that no one is teaching us in schools.
School teaches us, if you make a mistake, you get a bad grade – and it means you are “stupid”. Teachers then say that you will never succeed in life because you didn’t get good grades.
But that’s not how life works.
FAILURE is the key to success.
If you want to be successful at something, you have to fail at it first.
Because only then you will be able to improve in the places where you failed.
You have to fail first, to improve at it later.
Successful people often fail, and they are looking at failure with a smile because they know, they can do better. They see a gap for improvement.
Actually, failure will decide for you, will you be successful or not.
Often people have goals they want to achieve, but they see a lot of huge walls standing in front of them. They start knocking them down one by one, but after a while, they get tired, losing their strength to move further.
- They FAIL.
They think it’s impossible to get past through all those walls.
- They GIVE UP.
If you want to achieve something in your life, you must NEVER GIVE UP!
“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows, it’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!
Now if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!“
– Rocky Balboa
Failure is only a lesson.
Don’t be afraid to fail.
If you don’t fail, you are not even trying.
3. Seek Opportunities
How much did you get opportunities to do something great that could improve your skills but you declined it?
Probably you thought of some excuses not to do it.
Probably it was – I didn’t have time.
Find the time to do it. Get out of your comfort zone, and get to work.
Start working for it.
Do you think successful people became successful by accident? Sitting on the couch in front of the TV?
They worked their asses off to get what they deserved!
They took every opportunity they could possibly get to become better than they were yesterday. To come closer to their goals.
You have to improve yourself constantly every day.
Never rest until you become what you always wanted.
Never stop working until you get what you desire.
There are 4 priorities you have to plan for a day.
If you want to be successful in life, you have to plan your days very carefully.
I have already made a blog about 7 Effective Time Management Tips – check it out to learn how to plan your day like a successful person.
You have to be disciplined to get what you want. You have to sleep no more than you have to, so don’t plan on lying in the bed for a few hours more than you need to.
Remember, what you want to be.
So do what you have to do, to become what you want to be.
Work, work, and work even more than you think is enough.
You will rest when you will finish not when you are tired.
You have to remind this every day for yourself because your goals only will be achieved if you work your ass off.
Ask any successful person, they will tell you the same thing.
Don’t waste time on the things:
- You don’t need.
- That won’t help you achieve what you need.
- That takes all the time you need for your goals.
5. Read & Learn
If you think that by graduating from school and college you won’t need to read anymore, then you’re wrong.
All Successful People read every day. Books are the best resource for your knowledge.
So read often, and pick the books that you know will benefit you.
- Go to seminars, ask people for advice.
- Meet with the people in your field to learn from them.
- Study other fields, that will help you achieve your goals even faster.
Every day is a competition. If you’re not improving in your business, someone else will take your place.
Read and learn something new every day. Become better than yourself from yesterday.
If you think you don’t have time for reading a book, then I will tell you that you have time for it.
- While waiting for the bus ar cab.
- While waiting for the meeting.
- While waiting to be served in a restaurant.
- Before bed.
- Instead of watching a TV ar watching Youtube or sitting in social media like Facebook, Instagram, etc.
There are plenty of times to read a book, an article, or listen to a podcast.
Improve your knowledge every day, and I promise you, you will become better and you will achieve your goals.
To become a Succesful Person, you have to act like a successful person. It will be hard, so don’t be disappointed if something goes wrong. It means that you just took a wrong turn, so back it up, and try to go another way.
Of course, there are plenty of other habits that successful people have. But I believe these 5 habits I wrote are the ones of the most important, especially Failure.
Now go on and achieve your goals, and remember, you have to fail at it first to truly achieve it.
NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR DREAMS!
