The Differences Between You and Them
Have you ever wondered what highly successful people do that perhaps you don't? Or even what makes them different from you besides their success? If so, you're not alone. While there can be a multitude of differences between you and them, here are seven habits of highly successful people that might interest you.
1. Planning for the Future
Highly successful people typically spend the time they need to on the planning stage of any venture. Rather than relying on chance or luck, they plan ahead to foresee obstacles, then prepare to overcome them as they might occur.
2. Focus is Their Key
One insightful definition of focus is to "Follow One Course Until Successful". Many potentially successful people "give up" too soon. They hop from one scheme to another, hoping for instant success or to "hit a home run" on the first pitch.
3. Highly Successful People are Savers
What happens to your income as you receive it? Do you pay the bills, buy food, spend on other things and then finally, if there is any money left, put someth9ing away in savings? What should be paid first is you according to Robert T. Kiyosaki, author the the best-selling "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" series.
4. Goal Setting to Map Out Future Strategies
These people habitually set short and long term goals for what they wish to achieve. Using these goals as bench marks of progress and success, they can then map out strategies tom accomplish and achieve any goal that they have set for themselves, their businesses, their investments, their families and their lives. Do you set goals to attain what you are striving for?
5. Priorities are Set Early and Often
Everyday when they start off their daily schedule, highly successful people know what the priorities for the day are. They will keep high-priority tasks and events ahead of lower priority ones thereby allowing them to accomplish the most important tasks of the day first, each and every day. You too should set priorities for yourself.
6. Their Time is Scheduled
Microsoft mogul Bill Gates realized early in life that "if you want to both work hard and play hard, then you have to have a schedule". By scheduling what needs to be done each day, you can ensure that no important appointment, meeting, visit or other essential item gets inadvertently "left out" or forgotten during the course of a busy day. When chain-linked tasks which require one to be done prior to doing the next are scheduled, there is no concern that a critical or key step will be missed.
7. Take Time to Enjoy Life
No matter how busy they are or how hectic business affairs make their daily lives and schedules, highly successful people make the time to enjoy their lives and families. The concept of "taking a vacation later" or neglecting the needs and commitment to family are non-existent with virtually all people who ultimately achieve a high degree of success in their life.
