Allow yourself to fail
You are not always going to have the power to control everything in life, no matter how much you try. Life has its ups and down, so failing once in a while is healthy. Many successful people of overcoming their failures and looking at the positives they learned. Don’t fixate on one thing in life. Always see the positive aspect to each hardship. Successful people know they are not perfect. The more you fail, the better you become at it. Like, John Maxwell, the bestselling author says, “Failure is simply a price we pay to achieve success.” Never let the setbacks in life make you feel beaten down. We’re bound to fail once or twice.
If we consider the example of Michael Jordon, famous basketball player. He was cut from his high school basketball team. He practiced day and night, didn’t let this minor setback to stop what he loved the most. Today, he stands before us being among the most successful people of his time. Jordon, himself has admitted that he missed game shots entrusted by his team, but all this got him a career he is proud of. He didn’t let failure define his future.
Be secretive about your goals
A study has suggested whenever; we tell someone of our intentions, it already gives us a sense of accomplishment. This sense of accomplishment without even beginning is harmful to our ultimate goal. We are wired in a way that makes us feel as if we have already completed our goal. The exact opposite effect we want. Successful people tend to keep their goals a secret, and tend to work hard to accomplish them. One difference between a successful person and ordinary person is that successful people hold themselves accountable.
Success comes only when you justify everything to yourself. No one is going to ask for regular updates. Establishing a check and balance is up to you. Like I tried learning the guitar, but whenever I had the opportunity to brag to friends or family I did. All this had made me internally satisfied, even without practicing for days. This habit of boasting didn’t get me anywhere; I stopped playing the guitar. The brand new guitar just lies there in the corner of my room. So speaking from experience, one habit to include in your life should be this!
Avoid rewarding yourself
When we want to train ourselves one way rewarding produces a need to ease the suffering, during the training. When trying to develop a habit why does rewarding become a necessity? It is as simple as this; we don’t reward ourselves for combing our hair or brushing our teeth. We only perform all these functions automatically, because we train ourselves. Successful people only need inner satisfaction as a reward. You can only achieve in life with motivation, passion, and will power to succeed. Differentiating between a good habit and bad habit is if you require a reward after it.
Create an affirmation
Repeating yourself, performing that particular function is the way to go. Repetition only increases your ability to perform better with passing time. Successful people tend to develop habits quickly because of repeating the same healthy habits again and again. The study of an expert suggests that it just takes 21 days to break a habit or make a habit. So, if developing a simple habit of waking up early or going to sleep early, just repeat. Within days there will be no need for an alarm clock at all.
Just to look at Walt Disney’s life, who had trouble to become something. He was fired by a newspaper editor on the pretext that he was not imaginative. Imagine if he had not tried his luck, again and again, to eventually cook up the recipe to success. He had a habit to never quit or take no for an answer. Today, Disney sells it merchandise and movies worldwide generating large revenue.
Never break the habit due to exception
When developing a new habit, it is a must never to allow an exception. During the process of developing a habit, don’t make excuses or rationalize. Never make it easy to get you off the hook. Try to inculcate discipline in your life. Once you have discipline, like successful people, you develop a habit. For instance, if you resolve to wake up 6 in the morning, discipline yourself to waking up until you are programmed that way. Never lose your focus on the main plan. Planning will help with figuring out goals and the way to reach.
Focus on success
Successful people have an effective solution to avoid frustration that you focus on the little things you achieved to get to the bid prize. Like, when going a day without sleep is not healthy just to work. But instead giving yourself leverage that you worked hard the whole week. Falling asleep early than planned or forgetting to plan. Don’t beat yourself over small things. The best example of focusing on success would be of Oprah Winfrey, T.V’s most iconic star. She had a rough background and not an easy start in showbiz. Oprah was fired as a news reporter because she wasn’t fit for television. She never backed down, having a willpower that got her among the richest and successful people.
Make a decision
The most valuable advice from successful people is to regain your lifestyle on track. Think about what is important to lead you to your goals. Discarding unhealthy habits is all up to you. Having an organized life will only benefit you in the long run to develop a habit. Like Eleanor, Roosevett has said, “In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.”Successful people make it their priority to party on nights when they don’t need to be up the next morning.
Dream big aim small
The idea is simple motivation is what that drives us to strive for our goals and making it a habit is what keeps us going. Successful people never underestimate the power of persistence. Take the story of any one, like the founder of Ford Motor Company, who failed miserably five times in his business. He reached to this height of success just due to persistence and consistency at what he did. Now, Ford Motor Company is the best car company around the world, without a doubt. Therefore, we have established the fact that to begin your journey to success, you need to develop goals that drive you to form a habit. Micro-targets are also important.
