How successful people do it,

Taking Action

On the list of habits of successful people is the inevitable “action” habit. It is important to organize, to plan, and to set priorities, but without action, a plan is nothing more than potential.

Successful people act – quickly and often. In addition, although it may sound counterintuitive, according to James Clear, they act (start, anyway) before they feel ready. While others come up with reasons not to act, successful people take that all-important first step – even if it seems outlandish.

Positive Attitude

According to experts, having a positive attitude is not just a result of being successful – it’s one of the root causes of success.

Joel Brown refers to gratitude and positive self-talk as priorities in the lives of the ultra-successful. Moreover, Brown says, it’s not enough to express gratitude and a positive attitude. You must also remind yourself why you are grateful in order to achieve a deeper effect.

Networking

Successful people know the value of exchanging ideas with others through networking. They also know the value of collaboration and teamwork – all of which are likely when you network.

Successful people know the importance of surrounding themselves with other successful people, according to author Thomas Corley. Corley says 79% of wealthy people spend at least five hours a month networking.

Frugality

Frugal is not the same as stingy. Frugality is a habit of being thrifty, with money and resources. It is also a habit of being economical. Learning to be economical comes through avoiding waste, which automatically results in efficiency.

Corley notes that wealthy, successful people avoid overspending. Instead, they comparison-shop and negotiate. The result, according to Corley, is financial success through the simple act of saving more money than they spend.

Reading

It’s important to note that successful people read. While they also read for pleasure, most use their reading habit as a means to gain knowledge or insight.

For anyone who needs inspiration about the value and importance of reading, look no further than the example of billionaire author, J.K. Rowling, who says she read “anything” as a child. She advises, “Read as much as you possibly can. Nothing will help you as much as reading.”

The Bottom Line

Most people have habits – some are positive, some are not. Successful people tend to have more of the kinds of habits that contribute to their success.

The good news, for those who wish to be successful, is that cultivating positive habits takes no more effort than developing bad ones.

Some of the best habits of successful people involve only conscious effort, like getting up early every day. Others, such as becoming organized, may take a little more skill and practice but ultimately result in the most desired outcome of all – success.



Quotes by Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex

Personally, I don’t fuss about well known people, but there are certain people who draw me into them, for example, I could listen to Meghan Markle talk all day. Not only is she eloquent and extremely poised, but she is also full of wisdom — and let’s be real: she does not say things out of context or extra ordinary things that weren’t said before but whenever I listen to her I feel energized in a way .Who knows you could as well learn a thing or two from her. From crucial life lessons to the importance of fighting for women’s rights, the Duchess of Sussex has been dropping some gems that may inspire you to take that giant leap of faith you’ve been contemplating for so long.

“Women who had the strength to really stand up for something that they knew needed to be done is the best example of no matter how small you might feel, how low you may feel on the ladder or the totem pole, no matter what color you are, no matter what gender you are, you have a voice and you certainly have the right to speak up for what is right.”

“Reflecting on where I came from helps me to appreciate and balance what I have now. I was born and raised in Los Angeles. My mother was a free-spirited clinical therapist, and I had the most hardworking father, a television lighting director by trade. My mum raised me to be a global citizen, with eyes open to sometimes harsh realities.”

“If there was a wrong, if there is a lack of justice, and there is an inequality, then someone needs to say something. And why not me?”

“In a world that can seem so aggressive, confrontational, and dangerous, you should know that you have the power to change it.”

“Don’t listen to the noise. Focus on knowing what your own moral compass is. The moment that you’re able to be liberated from all these other opinions – of what you know to be true – then I think it’s very easy to live with truth & authenticity.”

“We are not meant to be breaking each other down; we are meant to be building each other up. So use your voice to do just that – build each other up, support each other. Your voices are those of truth. And hope. And your voices can and should be much louder.

“Yes, women’s suffrage is about feminism, but feminism is about fairness.”


“I find that when you strip all the layers away, as people, and especially as women, we can find deep connection with each other, and a shared understanding.”


“Every girl has potential. She has promise. She has the right to learn, the right to be heard, the right to play, and to discover. The right to be exactly who she is.”

“Do the things you enjoy within reason. Know your body and what works for you and you’ll be fine.”


“As you get older, you become more comfortable in your skin and comfortable in saying no to things . . . I’ve also learned that saying no is just as valuable as saying yes. It’s something that, I think, comes with age and really having a sense of your self-worth. And then you make choices based on that.”


“Building a strong team around you and being able to really communicate well with them is part of what’s going to bring you a higher level of success.”


“Take things with a grain of salt, and find balance within your life. On your lunch break, leave to go and get some fresh air. You don’t need to make your life your job. I have to find that balance for myself, as well . . . I think you have to make time for yourself so that work doesn’t become the end-all be-all.”


“It’s not enough to just survive something, right? That’s not the point of life. You’ve got to thrive, you’ve got to feel happy.”

“You need to know that you’re enough — a mantra that has now ingrained itself so deeply within me that not a day goes by without hearing it chime in my head. That five pounds lost won’t make you happier, that more makeup won’t make you prettier, that the now iconic saying from Jerry Maguire, ‘You complete me,’ frankly, isn’t true. You are complete with or without a partner. You are enough just as you are.”


“Don’t give it five minutes if you’re not going to give it five years.”


“We just need to be kinder to ourselves. If we treated ourselves the way we treated our best friend, can you imagine how much better off we would be?”


“You draw your own box. You introduce yourself as who you are. . . . You create the identity you want for yourself.”


“I encourage and empower each of you to really stand in your truth, to stand for what is right — to continue to respect each other.”
