Successful people invariably tend to “Behave” in certain ways and practice “Habits” conducive to achieving their Success.
This is a follow up Part 2 to my previous Blog post on the personality characteristics of successful people, and focuses on the “Behaviors” and “Habits” common amongst Achievers – that you can adopt, model, and make your common daily practice too, to help you achieve more success in your life…
1. Recognize that Success is an “Inside” Job
You must choose to make the changes and shifts on the “inside”, in your inner world, before you can make real changes and achieve the success you desire in your outer world.
Our minds are like a big filing cabinet – you need to insert new positive files or software to empower yourself to get what you want.
Always be totally committed to your ongoing personal development.
2. Success is a ‘Decision’!… Make the “Decision” to be Successful…
Success starts with a Decision – to BE Successful!
Success isn’t a journey or an end result. When you decide you want something, and believe and mean it with all your heart, the journey is what happens as a result of that decision. And, what a journey it is!…
3. See Opportunity All Around You
Be savvy about recognizing opportunities around you.
Get into the mindset and be aware that an obstacle is often an unrecognized opportunity.
Look for the positives in the obstacle or stumbling block and turn it around into an opportunity. It’s just a matter of your attitude, interpretation and approach. Keep positive.
Do you believe that “luck” is involved with achieving Success? Well, some people believe so.
But what is more likely is that for most successful people luck is really due to all the preparation they have already put in so that when the opportunity arrives, they’re totally ready.
“Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.” (Seneca – Roman philosopher, mid-1st century AD)
Successful people know how to make their weaknesses work for them. Embrace your weaknesses or shortcomings and turn them into teaching others how you overcame them and triumphed – tell your story…
4. Set Goals and Keep Them Before You Every Day
No matter how far-fetched, work on your higher Goals. Winners do!
Write down your Goals and Desires and review them daily.
Write your Goals into specific Action Plans. Break your Action Plans into Activity Lists and chunk them down further into smaller steps (at least the 3 next steps). Get rid of distractions and time wasters.
5. Keep Focused
Successful people stay supremely Focused, and are very clear about what they should be focusing on… and shouldn’t be focusing on. And that applies whether they are doing the task themselves, or outsourcing and managing a team.
Focus on the task at hand and follow through from go to woe, until completion, profits and success. Block out distractions.
6. Take Action!
Successful people know what they need to do to get what they want and they waste no time taking action and doing it…
In fact, take Effective Inspired Action. Success likes speed… So, don’t waste time. Act on your intuitive hunches and gut instinct.
Just Take Action. You’ll feel fabulous when you do.
Make it simple, take the angst out of it, and just do it, one step at a time… one baby step at a time if necessary. It’ll make up for a handful of imperfections. Aim for progress, not perfection.
When you take that step, it will shift and move everything forward. You’ll see magical things start to line up and happen in your Life.
7. Overcome Procrastination
Successful people know how to overcome procrastination.
Be clear on what it would mean if you did it! Don’t put your life on hold. Build a life that’s meaningful…
8. Make Smart Choices to Support Your Success
Ask yourself – will this choice empower me or disempower me?
Successful people make choices that support achieving the life of their dreams. The more choices you have and create for yourself the more success you’ll have.
By the sheer fact that the more you do and try, the more likely you are to achieve the results you’re after. Again, it’s a numbers game. Refine and fine-tune as you go and learn from your mistakes.
9. Know How To Pull and Attract Resources Around You
Recognize that your weakness, or something you hate or aren’t good at doing, is someone else’s passion. Build a network of people who can help you.
Successful people are very good at recognizing that they can’t do it all alone, and make building a loyal team a top priority.
10. Keep Learning New Things – Constantly!…
Make learning a lifetime Habit. Successful people know what they need to learn and equip themselves to get what they want or move to their next success level. They never stop learning.
Once you believe you know it all, you’ll stagnate and become stationary. The 4 most dangerous words are – “I already know that.”
11. Look for Role Models
Success leaves clues. Successful people admire and model other successful people.
You need to look at others who have succeeded who you admire and gain access to those skills and qualities. When you know what the skills are that you need, you can go about getting them.
12. Participate in Mastermind Groups
Mastermind Groups are a powerful way to help you move to your next level by getting together and working with likeminded people who hold your vision for you along the journey.
They act as a force field holding the energy of your Intention for you, and hold you accountable – whether learning new behaviors, sharing knowledge, growing businesses, or marketing businesses together. No one can succeed to their full potential without a supportive “Community”.
I’m sure you’ve heard it said that your income level tends to be similar to the 5 or 6 people you associate with most.
If you’re going to grow, you have to associate with people who will help you get there.
