HABITS TO ADOPT
Most successful people you know you know would have a way of doing things differently. They have a certain flair in them and they handle situations differently. Most of the successful people you know whether it be your colleague, your mentor or a person you look up to, have a few innate and honed abilities in them. Here are a few good habits all successful people possess and perform everyday, that others neglect or give up on when things get hard.
- Laughing Often
Humor can be found in almost all situations and although it’s good to be serious most of the times, a successful person knows when to take it lightly. “The crisis of today is the joke of tomorrow”
- Listening Carefully
It’s much better off hearing what others have to say rather than telling them what they want to hear. Nobody learns anything without listening
- Being Productive
It always benefits to be challenging yourself and learning something new. “No education is ever wasted”
- Asking Questions
Not being quiet and passive but learning while listening in a tactic we call “Active Listening” and asking questions whenever in doubt.
- Reaching Out
You need to reach out and show that you are also willing to help others before you ask others. Nobody achieves something great alone.
- Thanking Someone
Two simple but powerful words “Thank You”.
- Asking Questions
Didn’t we just see that above?! Good you are paying attention. Asking not only questions but questioning a followed norm, going out of the usual and bringing out your inquisitiveness. Revisiting assumptions and asking “why not?”
To genuinely win someone’s trust, you have to put yourself in their shoes and see the world from their point of view. Empathy is a learned skill.
- No Fear for Failure
There is no failure without trying but there is also no success without willing to risk failure
- Being an Adventure Yourself
Doing anything outside your comfort zone. Travelling and having new experiences and reaching new heights.
- Forgiving Quickly
Successful people understand that forgiving someone is as much a gift to yourself as it is to them.
- Remembering What You Forgave
Forgive but don’t forget. There is a big difference between forgiving and forgetting.
- Taking Risks
People with success are great risk-takers and in such a way they become great risk-managers. Every choice in life involves risk and it depends on which ones you choose and which ones you ignore.
- Loving and Seeing Things in a New Light
Life full of love is simply better. Hint: you don’t have to like everyone to love. Looking at things with different and with love only brings out the optimism in you.
- Prioritizing Things for Yourself
Successful people are usually successful in more than one thing. But you don’t accomplish multiple objects without deciding which to do first.
- Accomplishing Something Valuable
We are judged on what we accomplish. The ones with success know you can’t build a reputation on the things you are planning to do in the future. At the end of the day, you have to see it through that you accomplish what you set out to do and are content with it.
