Habits Of Highly Successful People

A business woman with professioanl in the backgroundSuccessful people have the envy of many. However, those with success are rarely born with it. It turns out that success requires lots of determination and hard work, and most of those who reach their goals have earned it. Anyone can be successful, but you have to put in the work first.

5 Habits Of Successful People

Contrary to what many people believe, success has very little to do with IQ, race, gender, or the amount of money in your bank account. Below are a few of the habits that many successful people share:

  1. Wake Up Early – While this isn’t an easy habit to adopt, it’s one that many successful people share. There are a few ways to try and help yourself wake up early. First of all, avoid the snooze button. Sleeping for an additional 5 or 10 minutes will actually make you feel more tired. Second, try putting your alarm clock in another room, forcing you to get out of bed to turn it off. Once you’re up, there’s less of a chance you’ll go back to bed. Lastly, try going to bed earlier. This will ensure you get enough sleep to feel well rested earlier in the morning. 
  2. Exercise – It turns out that exercise is good for both your body and your mind. In addition to making you physically healthier, exercise also improves your memory, minimizes stress levels, and keeps your brain healthy. Successful people almost always make time for daily or weekly exercise.
  3. Read Books – Many people who have reached success report reading – a lot! Bill Gates, J.K. Rowling, and Mark Cuban all read for between 1-3 hours every single day! Other successful readers include Barack Obama and Albert Einstein. You might want to set aside some time every day to read up on a subject that interests you. Start small – 20-30 minutes before bed is a great start!
  4. Volunteer – Around 75% of successful people donate money or volunteer their time to charity. If you don’t have enough money to begin donating, try volunteering at your local animal shelter, nursing home, or soup kitchen. Not only will you be doing great things for your community, but you can also take pride in helping those less fortunate. 
  5. Work Hard – Even if you don’t feel like working, try to force yourself to work. Chances are that, once you get going, you’ll find the momentum to keep it up! If you still aren’t feeling motivated, try breaking larger tasks down into smaller, more easily achievable ones.

Don’t go overboard and try to implement all of these habits at once! Instead, pick one to work on at a time, and once it becomes a part of your daily routine (3-6 months), then you pick another.
