Success isn't over night. It's when everyday you get a little better than before. It adds up.

Today I am writing about habits of highly successful people. From past few months I have been trying to implement few of them into my lifestyle and I really feel amazing change in my health and mindset. Some how I feel it changes the way you think as well. It is told by researchers that to implement any particular habit, it takes 21 days of repetition. If you stick to a habit for 21 days straight, your brain starts to get into the pattern. So I am going to list those habits down for you and I also encourage you to at least try implementing few of them into your lifestyle.
Self-Discipline and Consistency- Well discipline is big on successful people's plate. This is one of the main reason for who they are today. Do you think an athlete will achieve success if he/she doesn't have a planned routine for practice? If he/she is not consistent to practice everyday, can they win any game at all? That's why it is very important to plan your days and stick to it every day if you really want to be successful.
They start their day early- Waking up early is always told as a good habit by our elders. But we hardly ever bother to consider it. But guess what, most of the successful people make sure to wake up early and start their day as soon as possible. I know its hard, at least for me it is really hard. But if we think about it, when we have a motive, we do get up on time. Like when we have to catch an early bus or flight. When we have planned a trip for a vacation, we are actually happy to get up early but why don't we do that every day. That is because we lack a motive. If you give yourself a motive of why you need to wake up early, it might become easier every morning. Plus you get a lot of time for yourself and to get things done. Just think about the days when you are late and you take a shower in a hurry, you get dressed in a hurry and you even skip you breakfast. And in that process you go through lot of mishaps. you really don't like those days, do you?
They make reading a priority- Successful people make sure they make some time throughout the day to read a book or articles or anything of their interest. Reading helps you to gain knowledge and also makes you confident and raises your self-esteem. It may be just for 15 mins every day but I suggest you make some time to read.
Take time for yourself- Everyday you should definitely make time for yourself when you can think about yourself. It's called "self-reflection". You think about "what you are doing in life?". "Are you going in the right direction of your goal?".
Think how you can make your life better. I suggest you do this in a peaceful time but not before going to sleep. It might make you stressful and you will end up losing sleep. It is better to have this alone time after waking up.
Stay Healthy- Successful people make their health a priority. They get up early and they also sleep on time to get the necessary hours of sleep. Well they do have to burn the midnight oil once in while but they make sure to get back into their routine. They exercise, may be not daily but they make time for specific days in a week. Some people say exercising helps them to release stress and keep focus throughout the day.
Set goals and get going- Well once you set a goal, you need to make an action plan. Successful people don't laze around thinking, "Hey I want to achieve that one day". Well that day never shows up. What they do is they make a plan of what needs to be done to achieve their goal and they actually start implementing the plan.
Don't waste time- When you are passionate enough about your goal, you don't waste time. There will be always something to do. Successful people don't waste their time watching movies on a couch by eating pop corn. They don't go to party every weekend at some club. They do it once they achieve their goals to celebrate. And whatever time they get, they spend it with their family or people who are important to them.
Stay focused and be honest- As I talked about being consistent in beginning, well it is really important. You need to stay focused and don't give up when you fall after crossing a bump. If you are being honest to yourself, then you will never lose your focus. Just ask yourself, What benefit are you going to get if you keep lying to yourself.
Today is your opportunity to build the tomorrow you want.
