Failure, letdown, disappointment, loser - whether someone said these to you OR worse, you’ve said them to yourself.
Discover the best daily success habits of entrepreneurs so that you too can discover how to be successful in life and business.
In both life and business, when you’re striving to be more, have more, do more roadblocks and setbacks are bound to happen, but rather than give up I want to share six shocking habits that have radically transformed my life and business as an entrepreneur.
I’ve heard Brian Tracy say. “Good habits are hard to form but easy to live with.
Bad habits are easy to form, but hard to live with.”
Unfortunately, you can't just drop a bad habit, but you can replace a bad habit with a repetition of new good habits.
Start by taking a personal inventory of your habits.
As humans, we’re creators of habits, in fact, studies by neurobiologists and cognitive psychologists indicate that 40 to 95 percent of human behavior—how we think, what we say, and our overall actions—falls into the habit category.
It would be difficult to list every habit you, have, but personal self-awareness is a powerful tool to help you reshape your life, so you can begin by deciding what it is you’re wanting in life or business and then reflect on how your daily habits may be taking you one step closer to achieving that desire or taking you away from it.
Once you know what you want and can see how some of your habits are either helping or hindering you, you can start to activate the 6 shockingly simple habits of a successful entrepreneur and discover the key to how to be successful in life and business.
Daily Goal Setting
Know what you want. The most successful people in the world think about their goals most of the time. Start each day by writing down your top goals. Doing so will prime your brain to receive new ideas on how you can achieve your goals.
Make A Must-Do List
Not a To-Do List, a MUST DO list - meaning that the items of your list must be results-oriented. The most successful entrepreneurs don’t fill their days with BUSI-NESSS. They focus on completing the tasks that will actually generate results and then delegate or ditch the rest. Jot down what you must do then put them in sequential order, putting the most important task at the top. At the top of the day when your brainpower is the strongest, choose the one activity that is the most important. Start on it first thing and don’t stop until it’s complete.
As humans we don’t get energy, we create it. Yes, of course eating a balanced diet is helpful and maybe the occasional cup of coffee can give you a quick jolt, but what I’m talking about here is motivating your mind and body through movement.
The most successful entrepreneurs prioritize exercise and personal development. They’re mindful of what they put into their bodies and their minds. Choosing only to consume life-giving content that will help grow. Like watching or listening to this show.
Attitude of Gratitude
Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life will welcome more abundance to you. The best daily success habits of entrepreneurs include having an attitude of gratitude. Recognition, acknowledgment, and showing appreciation to both themselves and others.
Start your day giving thanks for what’s to come and hold a grateful heart throughout.
Self-discipline is the ability to push yourself forward, stay motivated, and take action, regardless of how you're feeling, physically or emotionally.
In order to be successful in life and business, develop the power habit of self-discipline. Doing the things that need to get done when they need to get done, no matter what.
Just getting started on something is not enough, see each task to completion. This is a daily habit of the most successful entrepreneurs.
Now acquiring the habit of being self-disciplined isn’t going to happen overnight and it won’t necessarily be present across all aspects of your life. Good habits take time.
But do notice how you show up in some areas of your life and see if there's a correlation for how you show up in others.
For example, self-discipline in the area of physical fitness comes more easily to me from the years of being on sports teams and my 8 years in the U.S. Army. I can easily get myself to keep pushing until the last second of my workouts.
However, I recently began to welcome more self-discipline into my life, by first noticing where it was missing. In my house habits.
I’d start a load of dishes or laundry and be satisfied that I got them washed. Delaying the drying and putting away steps. I then began to notice how this was carried over into my business life. Creating a new digital course, or writing another book, but then delaying on putting together the marketing sales funnel to promote and sell it.
How we do one thing, we do everything.
I’m curious to know where self-discipline is showing up in your life and where is it lacking? Share with me in the comments below.
People-oriented people show affection early on to those immediate people in your life, doing so boosts oxytocin, positively priming your brain to be more productive throughout the day.
The most successful entrepreneurs also spend much time thinking about their customers, what they want and how you can help them.
As well as being sure to surround themselves with like-minded people who are also striving to achieve success in both their life and business because they understand that we become like those whom we associate with.
