8 things successful people do, that you should start doing too!

Do you often wonder what successful people do that makes them stand out?

 

Have you ever wished you could switch on a light bulb that would make all your dreams come true?

 

How about wishing you had superpowers that would empower you to smash your goals and tick off all your important tasks?

 

I have had those thoughts too?

Alas! Life doesn’t work that way! The reality is simple. Most of your goals and dreams can actually be accomplished if only you’re willing and able to put in the work consistently.

 

8 things successful people do, that you should start doing too! 8 things successful people do that makes them stand out

 

1. Time management: time management is really life management. successful, happy, prosperous people use their time far, far better than the average person.

 

2. Mentorship: I could change my life and achieve almost any goal I could set if I just found out what others were doing in that area and then did it myself until I got the same results they were getting.

 

3. Action-orientation: Successful, effective people are those who launch directly into their major tasks and then discipline themselves to work steadily and single-mindedly until those tasks are complete.

 

4. Plan and Execute: failure to execute is one of the biggest problems in organizations today. Many people confuse activity with accomplishment. They talk continually, hold endless meetings, and make wonderful plans, but in the final analysis, no one does the job and gets the results required.

 

5. Decision, Discipline, and Determination.
First, make a decision to develop the habit of task completion. Second, discipline yourself to practice the principles you are about to learn over and over until they become automatic. And third, back everything you do with determination until the habit is locked in and becomes a permanent part of your personality.

 

6. Clarity : this perhaps the most important concept in personal productivity. The number one reason why some people get more work done faster is that they are absolutely clear about their goals and objectives, and they don’t deviate from them.

 

7.Delay gratification: Successful people are those who are willing to delay gratification and make sacrifices in the short term so that they can enjoy far greater rewards in the long term.

 

8. Intentional growth: for example, coming into work earlier, reading regularly in your field, taking courses to improve your skills, and focusing on high-value tasks in your work will all combine to have an enormous positive impact on your future.

    The three D’s are so important…Decision, Discipline, and Determination and being intentional with studying your craft to evolve is just as important.

    Those are all excellent ideas, most of those I already do. I love improving my skills, and grateful for platforms like YouTube with loads of tutorials.

    I have had to use every single one of these items on your list for my current business. They are hard to do, especially since there is little immediate reward. But when the work starts seeing benefits, it becomes even more exciting and motivating.

    Very informative and motivating post to read. If you want to be successful you should strive and do everything to achieve and one of the most important from these lists was the 3 D’s.

    Action orientated is the big one!! I know I’ve been more success because I’m a “doer”. I makes sure that I put action behind all my goals and plans. Love this list!! Very spot on.

  • Delaya

    All these points are great. For me…what I’m really seeing work in my life as far as being successful is the emphasis I put in time management, clarity and being disciplined. When I’m on, I’m on and instantly see the benefits of my efforts. It’s hard to get back on track if you fall off though as that’s why I think you also need a purpose to be successful. An overall something that will keep you going.

    I think we always need clarity. I would add optimism too especially at this time. We should know how to fail fast and learn from our mistakes.
