8 Simple Habits That Set Really Successful People Apart

When you think of really successful people, do you ever wonder what daily habits these people have in common? I have put together eight simple habits that every successful person follows.

Sometimes the difference between being really successful and just average is simply taking action. Why not take action today and incorporate as many of these positive habits into your life and see what results they bring you.

1. They Are Always Learning

Really successful people are voracious readers and are constantly seeking more knowledge and information. They are constantly striving to grow through self education. They do so because they are passionate about personal improvement and learning. They read, ask questions and keep up to date with current affairs. Fans of motivational speaker and personal development legend Tony Robbins will have heard his phrase C.A.N.I (Constant And Never ending Improvement). Successful people are consciously and continually improving different areas of their lives.

2. They Take Risks

‘Slow and steady wins the race’ is not the mantra of any really successful person. Successful people are not afraid of working outside of their comfort zone. They will try new things and they are open to new ideas. Successful people embrace and are excited by change and progress.

3. Successful People Are Grateful

Really successful people will reward and are grateful for the hard work done by colleagues. They recognize the importance of a strong circle of close friends, family and business partners. Most really successful people take the time to really appreciate everything that they have and what they have achieved so far. Really successful people who approach life with a sense of gratitude are constantly aware of the many wonderful things in their life. Because they enjoy the rewards of their successes, they continually seek out more success. And if and when things don’t go quite as planned, successful people who are grateful will put failure into perspective.

“The more you are grateful for what you have the more you will have to be grateful for.” – Zig Ziglar

4. They Seek And Celebrate Small Wins

Really successful people enjoy all wins no matter how big or small. The adrenaline and the rush that they get from winning boosts their confidence and improves their eagerness to achieve more wins and successes.

5. Always Leave A Strong First Impression

Successful people are usually very charismatic and give off really positive body signs. From a firm handshake, a broad smile to having a confidant posture. They are good public speakers. Speaking with confidence and enthusiasm and energy. They know the importance of both what they say and how they say something.

“You never get a second chance to make a good first impression!”

6. They Are Super Confident

Really successful people speak with confidence when talking about themselves, their goals and their exciting plans for the future. They speak with total belief with every fibre in their body what they are passionate about. The confidence and self-belief shown by successful people is almost contagious to everyone around them.

7. They Believe In Integrity

Successful people know that honesty and integrity are massively important traits to have. They know that honesty is the best policy when it comes to long-term success. Successful people know that being dishonest will always come back to haunt you. Very often, successful people will reward and acknowledge integrity and honesty as much as results.

8. They Use A Journal

Successful people know the importance of getting their thoughts and ideas down on paper. They use their journal to brainstorm for new ideas on how they can expand and grow their business. Journaling is an effective way to plan the day ahead and also to reflect on the previous day. Using a journal is also a great way to record the many things that they are grateful for in their life.

While there are many habits and traits of really successful people. The success habits above can really make the difference between being average and being awesome. Why not try to incorporate as many of these habits into your daily routine and see where they take you.

6 Reasons Why You Should Create A Bucket List

Reasons Why You Should Create A Bucket List

The term ‘bucket list’ has become quite popular in recent years. It has been used in pop culture references and as a casual topic of conversation when someone wants to do something. Chances are, you have heard someone say, “Oh, that’s on my bucket list!” But, a bucket list is more than just a fantasy, an out of reach dream or an excuse to say that you want to do many things, only to never follow through on them.

There are actually many benefits to creating a bucket list, if you just put in the time, the thought and the dedication into it. Making a bucket list is a perfect way to set your life goals and to stay focused on making them a reality. Still not 100% convinced? Let’s take a look at six reasons why you really should create a bucket list. Maybe, by the end of this article, you will be ready to put together one of your very own.

1. It Gives You a Purpose

While putting together a bucket list won’t tell you what the meaning of your life is, it can help to give you a purpose to your life. A bucket list should be more about the major goals that you have for yourself, rather than a bunch of fun little things that you might want to do. A bucket list gives you something to get out of life and allows you to stay focused while you are doing it.

Have you ever been bored, wondering what you’re going to do this weekend to fill up your free time? A bucket list can give you that answer, encouraging you to always work towards the things that you truly want to do and experience in life.

2. It Brings Your Goals to Life

As stated above, a bucket list should be about exciting goals that you have for yourself. But, it is also an opportunity to hone in on those goals. Many people have ambitions and even make goals or resolutions for themselves each year only to be forgotten a few days later. But, when you have a specific list of goals written down, it can help to make you more motivated and focused to achieve them.

Goals are incredibly important to have, and the fact that your bucket list can make those goals clearer and more tangible is really important.

3. You Will Create Lasting Memories

Memories are one of life’s greatest treasures. As you start to accomplish the things on your bucket list, you will also be making wonderful memories each time. Since you are doing the things you really want to do, those memories will bring you comfort, a sense of achievement and give you something positive to look back on and share with others.

4. It Will Pull You Forward

Have you ever been in a “funk” in life, or maybe you have had bouts of feeling down or depressed that have kept you from doing the things you typically enjoy? No one wants to stay in that kind of mindset for long. Because a bucket list can help to give you a sense of purpose, it can also give you the motivation to pull yourself out of a funk. It can call you to do something new, something different, or something that even challenges you. Sometimes, that’s all a person needs to be pulled out of a tired or depressed state.

Additionally, doing something on your bucket list will help to distract you for a while. That can be a great solution for someone who has anxiety or tends to focus too much on the negative things in life. Sometimes, a distraction can be a welcomed reprieve.

5. You Will Experience Life-Long Learning

When you commit yourself to having new experiences, you are also committing yourself to learning something new. So many people think that learning stops when you finish school, but you can learn so much more simply by living and trying more new things throughout your life. People who embrace this type of lifestyle are called “lifelong learners”. The reality is this; you will never be able to learn everything there is to know. But, because all of us have such a short time on this planet to figure things out, the more experiences we participate in, the more that we will learn and grow. Not only can a bucket list help you to learn things about different cultures, skills, situations, people and personalities.

It can also help you to learn more about yourself. Closing your mind off to the idea of lifelong learning will cause you to become stagnant with your thoughts and your growth. As a human being, you should have a desire to continue to grow and achieve as much as you possibly can throughout your life. Working through your bucket list can help you to achieve that.

6. You Will Never Run Out of Things to Do

If you sit down to make a bucket list, you might write down anywhere from 10-100 things that you really want to do. But, it doesn’t have to stop there. Chances are, as you start to work through some of the things on your list, you will come up with more ideas.

Experiencing new things, and even challenging things, is a great way to get inspired and motivated to continue on that trend. A bucket list can truly be never-ending as you come up with more exciting new ideas and goals for yourself.

Building Your Bucket List and Bettering Your Life

There are so many additional reasons why you should create a bucket list for yourself. Remember, a bucket list is a very personal thing, and the experiences you put on the list should be things that you truly want to do or accomplish. Don’t make them  so unrealistic that you will never plan on committing to. Instead, promise yourself that you will immerse yourself in those experiences.

A bucket list might be something you create to accomplish things before you pass on, but in creating one and diving into new experiences, there is a good chance you will feel more alive than ever!
