Adopt Successful Habits in Order to Succeed

If your goal is to be successful, whether in life or business, it is imperative that you adopt successful habits. When you change your habits from bad to better, you have a much better chance of succeeding. Of course understanding that you also must adopt good habits in order to succeed is easy. But this becomes very different when you are actually putting those habits to work for you. Below you can learn about the top 5 habits of success

  1. The Need to Make Money Is Not as Strong as the Passion to Succeed

If you think you are going to get rich using a get rich scheme, think again. They are called get rich quick schemes for a reason. In order to develop a business successfully it needs to be nourished with passion because it has all of the right components a successful business must have. The recognition and wealth that is accomplished is more of a pleasant surprise than a goal. The mind-set for getting rich quick tends to include cutting corners and short-changing clients while failing to take the time needed to understand the market you are in. This is a recipe for failure. Find something that you are passionate about and you will not need or want to take shortcuts. Your passion for the task will fuel its success.

  1. Do Not Let any Obstacle Stop You

A lot of people tend to quit before they reach their goals. In order to succeed, you need to face obstacles and not let them stop you. This means not taking no for an answer. If you cannot get associates to assist, or agree with an idea of yours, then it is time to take matters into your own hands. When you take matters into your own hands, you stand a greater chance of developing your own way of doing things that work for you. Make sure that you keep on going no matter what obstacle is in your way. Obstacles are everywhere, those who work through them grow stronger, learn more and become a little closer to success.

  1. Treat Associates Well

In the business world it is imperative to treat your associates, employees, and people in general well. You are going to be remembered not for what you say, but for you actions. This is also true when considering the people you surround yourself with on a daily basis. The quality of people you associate with will have a direct impact on your behavior. When you find the right type of people to work with and to build a team with, your ability to succeed will increase.

  1. Know Your Strengths and Weaknesses

Becoming a successful entrepreneur requires that a person possess humility and confidence. It is important to be able to own expertise and be ready to ask for assistance or advice when you need it. Many successful businesses rely on partnerships and teams that allow every person to utilize their strengths so weaknesses are avoided.

  1. Listen to Your Customers

Hard work and innovation are just part of what needs to happen in order to succeed. You also need to be able to listen, especially to customers. Their opinions matters when it comes to meeting needs and offering products and services that fit the current market. Always listen carefully to your customers and take action when they hint at something. This will help you make the correct changes that keeps them happy and you in business.

meditation and motivation

Meditate to Find Motivation with Motivational Speaker Doug Dvorak

The art of silencing the mind is called meditation. Silence allows you to concentrate better and feel inner peace even amongst turmoil. One of the main reasons that people enjoy meditation is because it brings them inner peace and allows them to build motivation. Motivation and mediation go hand in hand. When you experience one, the other is soon to follow. The order does not necessarily matter either since they both feed off of one another.

 

Motivational Meditation – Quiet the Mind to Motivate the Self!

You can begin by meditating once per day and work up to twice a day to better motivate yourself. Silence can bring a sense of happiness that fuels your day in a positive manner. It is a great idea to meditate first thing in the morning so you start your day on the right track. Sitting silently with your thoughts and blocking out the outside world allows you to concentrate on what matters to you the most. By concentrating on yourself you are able to better understand inner problems and form solutions. Meditation can come in different forms for different people too. For some meditating can be a struggle to quiet their mind and just relax and breathe, while others find it easy to slip inside a silent world where peace is the center of attention.

 

Improve Your Concentration

Meditation is a great way to improve your concentration. People become more productive when they have a clear mind. This is especially true for writers that need creative discipline. Concentration can also help you become less bothered when it comes to little things. If you find yourself disturbed by little things it is not abnormal. The nature of the mind is to make small things bigger than they actually are. Concentrating while meditating can ease worries. You will learn to let go of the meaningless worries and look at the bigger picture. Meditating renews your focus and allows you to let go.

 

Enjoy the Benefit of Better Health

Your health is directly tied into how you think and behave. This is not to say those with serious illnesses have caused their own condition; genetics plays a role in health too. However, no matter the condition, meditation can improve your outlook thereby improving your health. Meditation can reduce stress levels and anxiety. Once anxiety and stress levels are reduced you can enjoy better health benefits. Meditating allows you to concentrate on building and maintaining a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude).

 

Know Yourself

When you meditate on a daily basis you become more in touch with yourself. You can get a deeper understanding of your inner self and the purpose of your life. Meditation allows you to honestly get to know yourself and helps you make the necessary changes that will keep you motivated in life.

  1. Find a Goal Buddy

Sometimes reaching your goals is something that is better when done with a buddy. You can find a goal buddy that has the same goals so you can both encourage and support one another. This would work the same as having a diet and exercise buddy that works out with you while you both follow a healthy diet. A goal buddy can also help when it comes to making better work/personal choices, allowing you to retain your focus and accomplish your goals.

 

  1. Enjoy What You Are Doing

In order to stay motivated you need to find pleasure in what you are doing. If you have tasks that need to be completed to reach your goals, and you do not like them, it can be very difficult to force yourself to even start them. If it seems like hard work, you may want to avoid it. Although it might be true, the key to accomplishing tasks you do not like is to make them pleasurable or fun. Try to find ways to change your perspective on these daunting tasks and you will find it much easier and more enjoyable t complete them. Either way, fun or daunting, you will have to get them done.

 

  1. Break Larger Goals into Smaller Goals

Sometimes a single goal can seem like it is quite large. In order to reach a larger goal without feeling overwhelmed, consider breaking it into smaller goals. If you do not break up larger goals, you end up procrastinating and eventually giving up on the entire goal that could change your life for the better.

 

  1. Keep Track of Your Progress

A great way to make sure you are aware of how much you have accomplished is to track your progress. You can track each goal and keep a running tally on your progress so you can physically see how your hard work and determination are paying off. This type of chart will help you remain diligent by offering you a visual that gives you the opportunity to mark your goal reaching abilities.

 

  1. Hold Back

Sometimes you may feel like you need to work on a new goal and you do not want to focus on anything else because you are excited. Enthusiasm can be so strong that you are not able to define boundaries. But everyone has limitations. Hold back and pace yourself so you can continue to grow and maintain a healthy level of self-motivation without burning out.

We hope you take time today and this week to employ these 5 motivational tips and Ideas. They can make a difference if you take them seriously.

Dissecting 5 Motivational Quotes About Change and Opportunity (New Years Resolution Food for Thought)

With the new year coming up, many of us will be making vows to change a bad habit or behavior for our new years resolution. The world’s greatest achievers throughout history all share one thing in common: they do not fear change. Change to the worrier is nothing more than an unwelcome end. Change to a dreamer is a new door opening.

Resistance is Futile - Change

Here are some great motivational quotes about change and why I find them significant to success:

  1. Esmeralda Santiago: “How can you know what you’re capable of if you don’t embrace the unknown?” We often make the mistake of believing we have nothing to learn. Without curiosity about new things you will never know what you are missing. Looking forward to learning is a great motivator for those with inherent curiosity.

 

  1. Alan Watts: “The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.” When people are faced with change and feel nothing but fear and resentment they cut themselves off from possibility. Change is scary, but it is also often opportunity. Being open to change and diving in without fear is the only way to discover if something is right for you or not.

 

  1. Jodi Picoult: “Maybe who we are isn’t so much about what we do, but rather what we’re capable of when we least expect it.” The ability to think on your feet and to trouble shoot when things don’t go your way is an important aspect of life. Motivation is not possible without believing you are ready, no matter what.

 

  1. Tony Robbins: “If you’re gonna make a change, you’re gonna have to operate from a new belief that says life happens not to me but for me.” Believing the universe is on your side is one of the most basic ways of believing you are meant to succeed. The view that things are out of your control and that you cannot change your own path is the best way to accept failure and do nothing to change it.

 

  1. Barbara Pletcher: “The real winners in life are the people who look at every situation with an expectation that they can make it work or make it better.” Staying motivated is easier when you believe you can do better, or make the most out of a bad situation. It will prepare you to face everyday with the belief that you will succeed.

 

They might not be the most well known quotes, but each one makes it clear that the ability to change, take control of situations and constantly strive to improve are at the heart of success and motivation.
