5 Habits of Highly Successful Individuals
By the time we complete our graduation when we studied for fifteen years. These fifteen years of basic education will shape our future. Right? Well, actually there is no right or wrong answer. As many students pursue higher education. Some study up to 12th standard yet become successful.
To become a successful individual we need to have some demanding skills. We need to develop some solid habits. Because whether you believe or not you don’t decide your future. You decide your daily habits and then these habits decide your future. Your future is the by-product of your daily habits.
A student whose habit is to study day after day will definitely get good marks in exams. So, what are the solid habits of a successful individual? Let’s look into the five such habits.
They Take Full Responsibility
There are so many stories of successful people who struggled and failed multiple times due to the factors not in their favour. In fact, many reached so low that they almost became bankrupt.
But they fought back, made new plans, adapted to new technologies and move ahead. And during those bad times they never, ever held someone else accountable for their failure.
Take the case of highly successful real-life Tony Stark, I mean, Elon Musk. His timeline reveals he failed 16 times in his career since 1995. But never ever he blamed anyone else except himself. That’s the habit of highly successful individuals that they don’t blame anyone but take the full responsibilities for their circumstances.
They Decide Exactly What They Want
If you have decided exactly what you want in life then you’re a rare gem. We are not successful in life because we don’t know what we want from life. Universe is always ready to listen to us. But are we smart enough to tell the universe what we exactly want?
I told many times to my ex-students, the universe will give you what you want but he will first test you in different ways. If your goals are big, your test will be big. So, tell the universe what you want and be ready for the test at any time.
Let’s again take an insight from Elon Musk’s life story. After the Paypal incident, he decided to enter into the aerospace industry. For that he even went to Russia, even met European space company Arianespace. But he never got any technology or rocket from them. So, he and his partners decided to build rockets by themselves. Despite having all the disadvantages he exactly knew what he wanted from his life.
They Visualize Their Success
If I tell you whatever you’re seeing around yourself is nothing but the outcome of someone else’s visualization. All human-made things are the outcome of someone else’s visualization. Mobile, laptop, car, drone, missiles, home, family are all outcome of the visualization process.
The process of visualization is no joke. If you can see in your mind, you can have that in your life. That’s the mysterious power of visualization. Highly successful people do lots of visualization, they feel their success before they can achieve it. And they do this over and over again. So, how often do you visualize your success?
They Don’t Waste Time
Successful people don’t waste their time as time is the only commodity no one can get back. So, use your time wisely. Successful people work hard day and night. And that’s one of the reasons they can achieve the impossible.
You will be surprised to know the working hours of Elon Musk. As we know both SpaceX and Telsa is highly successful companies today. They have a market value of more than $100 billion (Tesla) and $33.3 billion (SpaceX), individually. And it has been reported that despite having all the facilities, Elon Musk many a time worked for more than 120 hours a week.
They Keep On Learning New Things
The habit of learning new things differentiates highly successful people from normal people. And it is my personal advice whatever you are doing right now never stop learning. There are many amazing things out there, so just keep on learning.
By the way, Elon Musk is the only person on earth who studied rocket science by self. He is a self-taught rocket scientist. Can you believe this? He can tell you exactly everything that is needed to build rockets. It’s your life, you decide what you want to learn but never stop learning.
Although I have shared only five habits of highly successful individuals but there are more habits. May be about them I will write in another article. But the fact is there is something which makes them highly successful and that’s their habits.
So, anything, any behaviour which you do as a routine in your day to day life subconsciously that are your habits. And at last, I just want to say build solid habits to build a solid life.
