Inspiration From Other’s Success Habits
In his 1937 classic self-improvement book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill writes the famous line, “Success and failures are the results of habits.” Whatever your goals, those words are well-worth noting. There’s a reason why the book has sold more than 100 million copies. Think and Grow Rich is about more than business, as Hill’s philosophy about the link between habits and success can be applied to any goal.
So how to you start a good habit? The first step is to surround yourself with people who will encourage to reach for the top. That’s one reason to join a Mastermind group. Belonging to a group where everyone is motivated, will support you and where you can ask for advice or ideas will form the basis for good habits that can lead you to success.
It is written that it takes approximately three weeks to develop a habit and make it stick. Once you join a Mastermind group, give it a fair shot. Participate to the fullest extent. Make contacts, follow up with people and help others. Meet your deadlines. Remember that a late project or a missed deadline can tarnish your reputation as a reliable worker and cost you work.
My personal list of success habits is:
- Get Up Earlier
- Have a Morning Routine
- Write it Down
- Set time limits
Without question, I can attribute changes and growth in my own business to the day I made a commitment to these seven items on a consistent daily basis.
In my next blog I’ll discuss them further and provide tips.
Are you already at the top? Mastermind Groups can help, in that the groups offer instant contact with your peers who make up some of the smartest, strongest, and best thinkers in their respective industries. By associating with these individuals, you will not only benefit directly by implementing their ideas and suggestions and by learning from their success habits, but indirectly – inspiration from their success will lead you to developing and committing to success habits as well.
