5 Daily Habits for Success


Motivation gets you started. Habit keeps you going” – Jim Rohn


Along with the theme of our most recent post on time management, let’s consider some important habits of successful individuals, suggested by SUCCESS magazine columnist Kimanzi Constable.


1. Successful people plan out their day the night before

Without a plan, how can you get where you want to go? Planning is essential to making sure you’re staying on track to doing what you want to do and becoming who you want to be.


2. Successful people read books to get inspired

Dr Seuss wrote: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Reading allows an individual to learn lessons through the experience and wisdom of others, without having to suffer the pain of unnecessary trial and error.


3. Successful people make their health a priority

Physical health engenders mental, emotional and even spiritual well-being. So make it a priority because it has far reaching effects!


4. Successful people don’t get distracted by what other people are doing

While learning from others’ examples is a sign of wisdom,  a “keeping up with the Joneses” mentality will keep you on a path of followership when what successful people exhibit is leadership.


5. Successful people live each day as if it were the last

If today ended in the sun not rising again, what would you wish you would have done? This, most likely, isn’t going to be something you missed doing at the office. It’s more likely that it has something to do with time spent with loved ones, service to others and your inner character. Keeping sight of what’s most important to you, will enable you to live a life of meaning, fulfillment and joy.


To finalize, a Chinese proverb: “Habits are cobwebs at first, cables at last.


All our best to you as you develop habits of success.
