We would all love to be able to walk down to the local supermarket and pick up a bottle of success. But let’s look past that fantasy and find out one of the most basic reasons why people become successful.
Right now, think of someone that you know personally who is successful. Can you see their face in your mind?
Now ask yourself this question, “Does this person have a successful routine or set of habits that make them successful?” I would be shocked if they didn’t.
Sometimes the only difference between being successful and being average is having successful habits. Some examples of successful habits could be getting up earlier, doing a thing when they need to be done, being prepared, or effective time management.
So how do you start to build these success habits in your life? Here are 4 tips on creating successful habits.
1. Identify — Find the areas in your life that need changing. Write down these new habits that need to be formed. Don’t become overwhelmed at trying to figure out how you are going to form all of these habits.
2. Pick 2 — Most people sabotage themselves by trying to change everything at once. Instead, pick one major and one minor habit that you want to form. For the next 30–90 days, these will be the success habits that you will create.
