Habits Practiced by Highly Successful People

Our best days are usually the days in which we are highly productive and still able to make time for ourselves.  To make this happen, we need to be mindful with how we utilize the minutes of our day.  Below is a compilation of some of the habits of highly successful people.

Expressing Gratitude

Many successful people, like Oprah Winfrey and Richard Branson, express gratitude on a regular basis  Gratitude doesn’t have to be for anything fancy.  Remember the last time you saw a rainbow? Did it make you smile? That’s a form of gratitude. Express thanks however you prefer. Being grateful for everyday gifts is part of the recipe for success.

Being Fearless

This is about the fear of success. It’s real—it causes inaction that interferes with moving toward personal success.

“One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn’t do.” —Henry Ford

Being Persistent -There’s No Such Thing as Failure

Not trying is true failure. Take riding a bicycle. If a cycling champion never jumped on a bike, they would never know the thrill and success to be found atop two wheels.

“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” – Thomas A. Edison

Successful People Practice Stillness

There’s a saying that “silence is golden.” New ideas flourish in a quiet mind. A good listener knows the gift of being still during another’s story. Nature’s sounds amplify in hushed settings.

Successful People Staying Active

Be physical. Move around. Breathe deeply. Action boosts circulation, clear thinking, and enthusiasm. Each of these is success in itself.

Successful People Embracing Creativity

Everyone is creative. Denying it limits success big time. Honor yours. If it’s playing hide and seek, go out and find it!

Living with Purpose.

Commit to a purposeful life and find something that drives you. 

Listening Be attentive in every meeting.  Don’t listen with the intent to reply; listen with the intent to understand.  

“Efforts and Courage are not enough without purpose and direction.” – John F. Kennedy
