6 Habits of Successful People


Why are some people, be it property investors, business people or entrepreneurs, more successful than others?

One of the key philosophies of my Mentorship Program is that successful people not only do different things to the average Australian, they think very differently.

So I was interested to find the following list of the habits of super successful people at Inc.com

1. Keep Your Eye on the Ball Business People Climbing A Flight Of Stairs, Stepping Up A Stairway Career Ladder With Idea Light Bulb On A Top

Don’t let the obstacles in your path keep you from your goals.

View challenges as opportunities to learn and grow.

To stay ahead, in business or anything else, you must be able to see situations from all angles and adopt the broadest possible perspective.

2. Learn How to Say No

It’s far better to say no to a project you aren’t fully able to take on, rather than say yes and produce poor quality work or lose your focus on what matters most. 

Learning to say no when it is in your personal best interest, or in the interest of your company, is an extremely valuable skill.

Make a list of the things that are most important to you and that you must do yourself, and then delegate the things that can and should be done by someone else.

Free yourself from daily busywork and you’ll open up time for new opportunities

3. Keep a Daily Plan of Attack

You know the old saying: “Whatever isn’t written down won’t get done.”

As much as we like to think we can remember our most important tasks, when the workday gets busy and meetings run long it’s easy to forget some of the things we need to get done.

Each morning write out a detailed plan of attack for the day.

Not only will this list keep you more organized, but seeing the list in front of you may help you work harder and ignore distractions.

4. Welcome Criticism  44375941_l1

Learn to listen to and absorb the criticism that you get.

Hateful and negative criticism should be heard, assessed, and then let go, while constructive criticism should be evaluated and acted upon.

Solicit feedback from people whose opinions you value.

Remember to be gracious when receiving feedback; when you are, your co-workers and friends will be more likely to give you their support and ideas in the future.

5. Trust Your Instincts

Intuition is very real and something that is never wise to ignore, because it comes from deep within your subconscious and is derived from your previous experiences in similar situations.

If your mind is telling you “yes” but your gut is telling you otherwise, it’s usually for a good reason.

When faced with difficult decisions, seek out all the information you can find, become as  knowledgeable as you can, and then heed your instincts.

6. Take Risks light-bulb-idea-leader-think-smart-clever-failure-motivate-thought

It’s impossible to become successful while always playing it safe.

Taking well-calculated risks can bring previously unimaginable opportunities to both your career and your personal life.

When taking a risk doesn’t pan out the way you had hoped, simply learn from it and keep moving forward.

Remember that big dreams and great success aren’t realized by playing it safe!

So there you have it:

These are six things that very successful people do every day.

Embrace these habits and you can greatly accelerate your own success.

How do you develop these habits?

Well.. it takes a lot more than positive thoughts to permanently change your beliefs  – it needs specially designed exercises and repetition to remove your non supportive beliefs and replace them with more supportive beliefs. habits

Interestingly that’s why I have designed a 12 month Mentorship Program – to change the way you think about money and wealth.

It’s designed to change your beliefs but as I say – it’s a lot more than what Corley suggests – it’s a lot more than rah rah or feel good sessions.

My Mentorship Program has been running for over 10 years now and many of the participants have had outstanding results.
