Habits of Successful People


1. They look for and find opportunities where others see nothing.


2. They find a lesson while others only see a problem.


3. They are solution focused.


4. They consciously and methodically create their own success, while others hope success will find them.


5. They are fearful like everyone else, but they are not controlled or limited by fear.


6. They ask the right questions - the ones which put them in a productive, creative, positive mindset and emotional state. 

7. They consistently do what they need to do, irrespective of how they are feeling on a given day. They don't spend their life stopping and starting.  

8. They don't blame (what's the point?). They take complete responsibility for their actions and outcomes (or lack thereof).


9. While they are not necessarily more talented than the majority, they always find a way to maximize their potential. They get more out of themselves. They use what they have more effectively.


10. They are busy, productive and proactive. While most are laying on the couch, planning, over-thinking, sitting on their hands and generally going around in circles, they are out there getting the job done. 

11. They innovate rather than imitate.


12. They don't procrastinate and they don't spend their life waiting for the 'right time'.


13. They are life-long learners. They constantly work at educating themselves, either formally (academically), informally (watching, listening, asking, reading, student of life) or experientially (doing, trying)... or all three.
