Big image

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." The same goes for the reverse. Part of being successful in college and life is building good habits. Habits are powerful. Good habits can help you grow, personally and professionally. They bring about change one step at a time, and they help you ensure that these changes become part of your life.


In the following article you’ll find snippets of 7 Daily Habits of Highly Successful People.

They understand that success is a habit. It’s the coming together of everything they do. What do they do?


1. Wake Up Early
In a poll of twenty top CEO’s, over 90 percent of them responded that they wake up before 6 a.m. The reason? You’re more productive in the morning. There are fewer distractions at that time and you can get a lot of work done, before the day starts.


2. Making Time to Read

The one unifying thing that ties the entire world’s successful people together? They all read. Reading is the most important way to help develop yourself and improve your knowledge.

3. Make Time for Exercise
Exercising is of paramount importance to successful people, to help them remain clear headed and focused on their goals.


3. Focus On Productivity
Where do they get the time to do all of this? They maximize their time and effort. Successful people are in the habit of focusing their time and effort on what needs to be done for the maximum results.


5. Push Your Comfort Zone

Baz Luhrmann once said, “Do something every day that scares you”. Successful people are in the habit of pushing their comfort zone, just a tiny bit, each and every day. They put their foot in the realm of somewhere they’ve never been before, despite the fear, and allow themselves to grow. Find the limiting beliefs and fears that hold you back. Then do the smallest thing you can possibly do to improve yourself, each and every day.


6. Expand Your Network

Networking is paramount to the success of anybody. Without a solid, engaged network around you – you’re not going to get far. Successful people recognize this, and get into the habit of expanding their network each and every day. They research who they can help, and who they can connect with to help themselves grow.


7. Ask Questions
It is an essential part of the pathway to success. They want to understand as clearly as possible. They want feedback – How to improve, how to change. If you’re not always looking to ask questions and grow yourself, now is the best time to start.

Applying the Habits:

We all want to change our habits for the better, but changing habits is a hard process. So whether you want to change or improve your study habits, or adopting 7 Daily Habits of Highly Successful People, don't try implementing new habits in the same day. Slowly change in a time frame that you can manage and adhere to.
