Simple 8 Ways Successful People Live Their Lives

What makes those who are successful? There are many ways to approach that question, but simple answer is usually the right one.

Habits. In business and in life, if you truly want to succeed, there are habits that work and there are other habits that never should be repeated.

If you’re not as successful as you want to be and you know you can do better, copy the habits of those who are successful. It’s worked for many successful people around the world and through time. Steve Jobs, Thomas Edison come to mind and they were some of the most influential of their generation.
But theft is not enough, you can steal and perfect idea but to be successful at your craft also requires consistency over time.

Just as important, eliminate any of your own habits that are holding you back. Here are seven top candidates–habits that successful people never allow:

1. Believing you can please everyone.
Once you truly understand that it’s impossible to please everyone, you learn not to even bother trying. It’s nothing but a recipe for disaster, misery and frustration–and one of the biggest keys to failure. If you succeed ultimately someone will dislike you, after all you are taking what he or she can have, but understanding you cannot please everyone is an important key. And sometimes you must be the bad good to be the good one

2. Repeating the same mistakes.
Whether it’s in business, a job, or a relationship, successful people do not repeat the same mistakes. If it didn’t work the first time, they don’t try again expecting a different result. Successful people know that mistakes are for learning, not for repeating. It’s an old adage for a reason, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

3. Accepting short-term contentment over long-term value.
Successful people know that things take time, and it’s the daily grind that in the end will get them to their dreams. It’s the small painful steps you go through day by day that will benefit you in the future. If you can make it through the pain you will get to the gain. Realtor’s love this saying as it can apply to buying a home, if you jump at the first offer or home you see you can lose out in the long term. A mortgage is for 30 years so play the long game and try not to let bliss today ruin stability in the long haul.

4. Compromising themselves to fit in.
Successful people never try to adjust themselves to fit in to the crowd. They understand that who they are is what they are, and they don’t try to change themselves for others. The bad news is that if you want to succeed, you are not going to fit in with everyone. The good news is that the great ones never do.

5. Trusting something that looks too good to be true.
No matter how great something looks on the surface, successful people do their due diligence and make sure that what they are looking at has actual value and is worthy of their time. They know that when something looks too good to be true, it probably is.

6. Taking their eyes off their vision.
One trait virtually all successful people share is focus. They never take their eyes off their visions, dreams and goals; they do what they need to do and they do it with meticulous determination. People who are successful know where they are going, and because they do, they succeed. It’s as simple as that.

7. Disconnecting appearances and reality.
Who you are on the inside should be what is reflected on the outside. The moment there is a disconnect between the two, there is dis-ease within yourself. Success requires that you bring all parts of who you are–inside and out–and that you keep everything in sync. It isn’t easy, but the people who are most successful never fragment themselves to be successful.
Start today to examine your own habits, determine what’s leading you toward success and what’s in the way, and make the changes you need to–for the sake of your future.

8.Build trust by standing behind every one of your promises.
If you say you’re going to do something, DO IT! If you say you’re going to be somewhere, BE THERE! If you say you feel something, MEAN IT! If you can’t, won’t, and don’t, then DON’T LIE. It’s always better to tell people the truth up front. Don’t play games with people’s heads and hearts. Don’t tell half-truths and expect people to trust you when the full truth comes out; half-truths are no better than lies.

Regardless of the business you’re in – selling products to consumers, or selling hours for dollars – the only question you have to ask yourself is: “Do they trust me enough to believe what I’m promising to deliver?” Without this trust, you have zero, zilch, nada. If your target market knows you and they’re still not buying what you’re offering, they simply don’t trust you as much as you would hope. Earn their trust, and the rest of the puzzle pieces will be easy to arrange.
