5 WINNING HABITS OF SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE:
Early hours foster reflection. Enjoy the quiet and take some time to map out your day. Think through your goals and to-dos. Take whatever notes you need to ensure your day will be calmer and more efficient. Research has shown that even two minutes of visualization and positive thinking can improve your mood and clarity for the entire day ahead.
Morning workouts not only give you a boost of energy, they pump you up, ensuring your senses are up and running. You’ll feel ready to tackle any problem that comes your way. Studies have shown that people are less likely to come up with excuses early in the morning. So with fewer interruptions, you now have no excuse not to set your alarm 15 minutes early and sneak in a quick jog or a 5 minute workout.
Have a balanced life:
Successful individuals do not have work on their agenda all of the time. They set apart time for their family and themselves. Consider it a way of recharging your batteries. If you are always buried in a pile of work, you are missing out on life. Personal time is critical because it’s the time you’re able to review your life and where it is headed; that is the time that you reflect and develop new strategies for your success journey.
See time as finite/limited:
It’ll motivate effectiveness and efficiency as it applies to time and allow you to achieve results. It’s best accomplished through delegation and leverage.
Like the path from white belt to black belt, success includes a journey that is taken one lesson at a time. Improved and refined, successful people move onward and forward in facing their next challenge and life lesson.
They spend 15 to 30 minutes each day on focused thinking:
Many of the self-made millionaires Corley interviewed said they make time to process everything that’s going on in their lives. The rich tend to think in isolation, in the mornings and for at least 15 minutes every day. Often they’ll reflect on their career, their health and their personal relationships. Having quiet time to analyse your thoughts is associated with stress reduction. In fact, taking two minutes at work to focus on nothing but your breathe will help you relax, a Harvard-trained doctor tells CNBC.
