how to be successful Jun 27, 2017
What are you going to do differently tomorrow to make it epic?
I see a lot of people don’t want to get up early in the morning. Often, their excuse is “ I am not a morning person”. I look around and I've yet to meet a successful person that doesn’t get up early in the morning. So, at what point do you look around and say: “ Every example I have of a successful person I want to be like gets up early in the morning”? And, maybe, I am just gonna have to give in. If that’s what all successful people do maybe I just need to start doing it too.” As you look around successful people, people you’d love to trade places with, what are they doing that you are not doing? What is something that seems to be prevalent that they are all doing that you gotta just submit to? Be willing to just submit to the principals that work and go all in.
Here are some of the things that a lot of successful people do:
They have a plan
They set SMART goals and commit to them. When successful people set a goal, nothing gets in their way of achieving it.
They focus on productivity, not on being busy
Reward yourself for getting work done not for just being busy and working.
They take responsibility
You don’t hear them complain about the things that stopped them from success. You won’t hear them make excuses. Instead, they push forward knowing that they are the only thing that will make or break their success.
They work hard
The truth is that the road to success is paved with hard work. Success doesn’t just come to those who want it. You’ve got to work hard.
Successful people get outside their comfort zone
Many people don’t take advantage of opportunities simply because they don’t believe they are ready for them. You are not going to ever feel completely comfortable in the beginning, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t ready.
They hanging out with the people they want to be
People naturally mimic the behaviors of those around them. Mindset is contagious. So if you want to be a big success in life, spend time with others who are already successful. Don’t know anyone successful? You can read books written by them or about them. Listen to their interviews or watch them on TV.
They believe in themselves and their vision
If you want to achieve big results, you’ve got to believe in yourself.
They rest and recharge
Successful people work hard and then unplug so they can refresh their minds and bodies.
You can only push yourself 24/7 for so long
They constantly learn
Successful people believe that learning never ends
They’re willing to fail
Successful people aren’t afraid to take risks. They treat any mistake as a learning opportunity. Success is typically built on a series of failures and lessons learned.
They wake up early
By waking up early you have a chance to get a jump-start on your day and spend some time focusing on what you wish to accomplish. Success doesn’t happen by accident. It comes to you when you committed yourself to certain activities, that will help you reach your goals.
They make the most of their networks
The most successful people never try to go it alone if they do not have to, and they always look for opportunities to network and expand their circle of friends and business associates.
They track their numbers
You need to measure your progress so you can navigate towards your goal.
They set boundaries
Not every business proposition is a good one. Do not be afraid to occasionally say “no” to your own ambition as well.
Stop fighting what works and just go all in.
