If you think about why some people seem to be successful at everything they do, while others struggle through life, or never even try to reach beyond mediocrity, you might theorize that the successful bunch is smarter, better educated, born with a silver spoon.
You might attribute their success to having good connections, being lucky, or having the right personality.
Truth is, the biggest difference between those who achieve success and the rest of the world is that successful people have the best habits.
I know it sounds a little simplistic, but it’s true. I’ve seen it. And lived it.
But don’t take my word for it.
You’ve probably heard this from Aristotle:
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.
Brian Tracy put it nicely:
Successful people are where they are today as a result of their habits. Your habits determine fully 95% of your behavior. Everything that you are or that you will ever accomplish will be determined by the quality of the habits that you form.
John Maxwell knows it:
The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.
And similarly, Jim Rohn observed:
Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.
What Level of Importance Are You Giving “Habits?”
Imagine the secret to success being your habits . . .
Not the latest SEO strategy to trick Google. Not your number of social media followers, likes and shares. Not even the ability to get endorsements from the gurus in your market.
So here’s what I want you to ask yourself >> Do I spend as much time and energy defining and developing successful habits as I do posting on social media? buying new courses with the promise of $10K in 30 days? figuring out ways to grow my email list?
If you do, I bet you’ve got a 6 (or 7, or 8) figure business.
If you don’t, why not? Stop chasing shiny objects and get back to the basics.
Ask yourself what result you want. Get clear on that.
Then figure out what you need to do every day to get that result. And do it. Especially when you don’t feel like it.
How do you quickly make those daily tasks into effortless habits, rather than constant internal battles between what you should do and what you feel like doing? Listen to my thoughts on that in the video.
Then, let me know what new habit you’ve developed today.
And if you need help, let’s get on the phone together. It will cost you 45 minutes of your valuable time, but I guarantee it will be worth it or I’ll pay you for that time. Reserve your spot here.
