Adopting the Ways of Successful People


Successful people share common traits even though they are unique and outstanding in their own ways. By reading books about successful people I have found that the following factors contribute to their success in life:

1.      Goals: Successful people have a purpose in their mind. They have a clear vision for their desired future. They are passionate and they live according to their core values. Having meaningful goals is to focus and direct your energy to worthwhile causes without wasting your effort and valuable time.

2.    Perseverance: The willpower to continue and do what they believe in is their hallmark of success. Despite setbacks and problems and nothing seems to happen, they carry on consistently and persistently until they meet their objectives. There is no overnight success.

3.      Good habits: Some of the good habits are that they are early risers, they write things down. They don’t waste and they are thrifty. At work, they are mindful and focus on what is important and they are willing to learn from others. Follow those who are successful, change and replace your bad habits with good ones.

4.      Change: They are also flexible people. They are fully aware that if you don’t change you will get the same result every time. They make changes to improve and be progressive. When something is not working remember to do it in a different way. 

5.      Do it now: Successful people are enthusiastic. They are self- disciplined and eager to get things done. Procrastination is not in their dictionary. You know what to do but to be successful you need to take action and do it now.

6.      Positive mental attitude: Successful people are confident, optimistic in their outlook and failures are no deterrent to them, they learn and move on. Think positive and feel good about yourself to achieve your aims.

7.      Healthy and fit: Successful people are energetic. They exercise their body and mind to stay in shape with an alert mind. To be fully charged move more often.

8.    Hard work: Success is about investing time and effort. You need to constantly motivate yourself to work diligently. According to Thomas Edison genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.

9.      Give: What they do is useful and is what others are looking for. In the blogosphere you learn about simplicity from Leo Babauta. You can learn a lot from Darren Rowse to make money on the Net and get insight from Brian Clark for effective writing online. You give others what they need and you will get what you want. For me, I want to motivate others to take action and change their life for the better in every way.

10.  Creative: They imagine, they explore possibilities and they come up with bright ideas. They differentiate themselves because of their creativity and innovation in doing things in unique and original style. In life, like writing articles, you cannot copy and get noticed and be successful. Do it your way is the best way to succeed.  

Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.  ~David Frost
