Yes, it is always about success. It feels always better when you reach your goals and you come closer to be a successful person. Have you asked yourself what does it take to become a highly successful person? For sure to get the answer we should study those people.
A lot of people think that to become a highly successful person you should be very talented in any kind of niche. For sure there are examples out there when a piece of art or music song can provide wealth; there are also inventors, who have done incredible things that change people’s lives. But not only talented can be highly successful, but there are also a lot of people who have reached goals by hard work by doing certain things on daily basis by collecting small victories.
Recently had a chance to read an article at http://addicted2success.com/ written by author John Unger about ten daily activities to incorporate in your life to reach success. This list should be printed and left in a place where you can see it every morning or/and evening and even during the day while you are sure those activities are your habits.
Here are those daily activities that can lead to becoming a highly successful person to share with you:
1. Write something meaningful
Folks often complain that they lose great ideas simply because they don’t have a way to write them down when they become inspired. As it turns out, this is actually true. Many successful people have credited their success to the idea that they were able to jot down. It’s no wonder that successful people often carry a pad and paper with them. Is the effort wasted if a day goes by without the inspiration of a new idea? Absolutely not! The daily writings of accomplished people also include affirmations, reasons for gratitude, or simply reflections about the day.
2. Make every moment at the office count
Successful people know how to maximize their productivity while they are on the job. They don’t waste time on personal matters, social networking, and communications that aren’t directly related to their business.
“Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement” – W.Clement Stone
3. Communicate with others
A successful person wants feedback from the people around them. They don’t hide from communication, even if it is not always easy to receive or flattering. Successful people know that they must listen to their colleagues, underlings, family, and mentors. They also know that they should listen to their detractors as that can be a great path to improvement.
4. Prioritize own well being
Successful people don’t view their physical and mental well-being as something that can be minimized or put off to a later date. They realize that their health and well being are priorities. To accomplish this, they engage in daily physical activity. They take breaks to de-stress and decompress. They make an effort to get a few hours of restful and restorative sleep every evening. Finally, successful people also take time every day to engage in a hobby or activity that brings them joy.
5. Set daily goals
People who go through their days without a purpose are often very busy, yet they accomplish very little. Successful people write down a list of goals for each day, and then they make accomplishing those goals a priority for the day. If they do not accomplish every goal at the end of the day, they commit to continue working towards that goal the next day. This gives them a sense of accomplishment about their day and something to look forward to the next.
Successful people understand that their time is best spent in activities where they can use their skills and talents. When they are faced with tasks that are outside of their skill set, they delegate those tasks to others whose skill sets match the job at hand. By taking this approach, they make sure that their time is spent in the most productive way possible, and that those who work with them are also as productive as they possibly can be.
7. Learn something
A successful person is infinitely curious. To them, the idea of going a day without learning something new is appalling. A successful person spends some time each day dedicated to learning.
This can include:
- Reading for education – Such as industry related material, biographies, news articles, or technical journals
- Receiving advice and insight from a mentor
- Taking a class
- Attending workshops and other educational events
The point is that they value knowledge and education and make a daily effort to learn new things.
8. Spend time with the people you love
One of the key characteristics of a successful person is the willingness to prioritize what is important to them and to make time for that. A successful person values their friends and family, and they carve out time each day to spend with them. They know that taking, this time, makes their loved ones know that they are a priority. They also know that they receive a positive boost from this time as well.
“The love of family and the admiration of friends is much more important than wealth and privilege”- Charles Kuralt
Whether they choose to incorporate meditation into their morning routines or their evening routines, many successful people meditate daily. This relaxing, centering, and mind clearing exercise is a great way to prepare oneself for the day ahead or to prepare for a restful night of sleep.
10. Work towards new accomplishments
A successful person doesn’t just spend time enjoying the trappings of their current accomplishments. They have a list of personal and professional accomplishments that they wish to accomplish, and they dedicate time every day, working on achieving those goals.
Of course, it is almost impossible to habit all ten activities in a few days, weeks, even month, but sure it is definitely worth to try if you want to be a highly successful person. It is important to train yourself, why not start with acquiring some new habits?
“We are all self-made, but only the successful will admit it.” ― Earl Nightingale
