Top 5 Habits That Will Lead You To Success

Habits for success

It would be unreasonable to suggest that top names in business don't have a strategy or certain routines that have ultimately led them to huge success. In fact there is a long list of habits that an entrepreneur may adhere to.

Take a minute to think about what they could be? … Now let's take a look...

Adopt These Habits Now:

Get Up Early
Big names like Richard Branson (Founder of Virgin Media) and Tim Cook (Apple CEO) encourage getting up early to start a successful day. Very often you will find they have a solid morning routine and they do it every day without failing -- whether it's having an early breakfast, reading emails, sipping coffee, or just siting and thinking out the next idea. Those early hours seem to be the best times to plan the day and prepare the mind to surmount challenges.

Work Hard
If you ask any successful person, they will tell you ultimately the key to success is hard work, and to recognise that there are no times when you can't work, even through the rough patches.

Mark Cuban, owner of NBA's Dallas Mavericks, said: "Work like there is someone working 24 hours a day to take it all away from you". If Mark Cuban’s outlook (and his success story which proves it) doesn't motivate you to do just that, I don't know what will.

Find Success, In Failure. 
There is no harm in failing, it is the most important teacher you will ever have. The American automobile manufacturer, Henry Ford, once said: “Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently”.

But do not dwell on the challenges or rationalise the failure. Find a way to be positive, being negative is a waste of energy; and trust me, you don’t have that much energy to waste.

Work Out
A huge proportion of successful people report part of their morning routine is to work out before the day starts. You would be surprised at how many successful people all share this common habit. Working out helps them get ready for the day; helps them focus and relieves tension. Richard Branson, Howard Schultz and Michelle Obama are among them.

Many people read, so this may not come as a big surprise but again a staggering number of successful people recommend making it part of your daily routine. Bill Gates has an hour before bed without fail. However, many favour books educating them rather than indulging in fantasy. Woody Allen and Bill Gates recommend 'Catcher In The Rye', which is both educational and satisfying, while Steve Jobs suggests 'The Innovators Dilemma'.

Reading keeps your mind and vocabulary fresh, and allows you to learn from others, whether it is their success or failures.

What will your new routine be?
