Most successful entrepreneurs are the ones who are most motivated – Sounds Correct?
Well, Maybe Yes –In our view, it is a mixture of habits and action coupled with motivation and passion which will make you successful. I am fascinated with the habits that affect happiness, health, productivity, and success and would want you to make them your guiding rules for a successful career.
Rule#1: Be Generous: Research have shown that spending money on your team/staff leads to greater well-being and happiness at the workplace than spending it on yourself
Rule#2: Ask More questions: Asking questions is the single most important habit for innovative thinkers, so ask as many questions till the time you are satisfied
Rule#4: Smile: The simple act of smiling reduces stress and increases happiness, even if you’re faking or forcing the smile. Putting on a happy face actually makes you happier. So next time even if you are up against a difficult situation – Just Smile!
Rule#5: Define success with happiness and not the dollar amount: The simple act of smiling reduces stress and increases happiness, even if you’re faking or forcing the smile. Putting on a happy face actually makes you happier. So next time even if you are up against a difficult situation – Just Smile!
Rule#6: Read & Read Well: Reading at the start of the day for 30 minutes will get the creative juices flowing; will get the brain stimulated and your knowledge base growing.
Rule#7: To Do List: Create one each day and stick by it. It will keep the work happening in a flow and also get it completed.
Rule#8: Measure Everything: “If You cannot measure – You cannot improve” So measure each and every activity around. Measure each Goal which you have set for yourself.
Rule#9: 90 Minutes Session: Researchers have proven that the human mind is at best during the first 90 minutes of the work session. Focus for 90-minutes, take an active break, then get back to the beautiful grind.
Rule#10: Family Comes First: You need to be working for a greater purpose than your own monitory gain if you’re going to accomplish true success. After all whom would you celebrate your success with if there is no “family”.
Rule#11: Sleep for 8 hours every day: Everyone knows and understands the importance of 8 hours of sleep each day, but we don’t follow it due to work pressures. Please do not ignore this as it is a must to have to be effective and productive the next day.
Rule#12: Wake Up Early: You pick any leader in history, 99% of time you will find him as a early riser. This is not a coincidence – Start your day early and get a head start to your day and your dream.
Rule#13: White Board: Keep your goals, dreams visible on a white board.
Rule#14: Dreams are to be shared: Get in the habit of talking to your teams about the goals which you have set and the dreams you see for your organization. It will keep them motivated and they will understand your vision better.
Rule #15: Get Company of successful people: You will get positive vibes along with brilliant ideas which I am sure you don’t want to miss.
Rule#16: Exercise: This is the single most important thing you would want to do to be highly productive.
Rule#17: Write down 3 things you’re thankful for every day: “If you concentrate on what you have, you’ll always have more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you’ll never have enough.”
Rule#19: Spend of things which will help your dreams: Cars, “things”, are only good for boosting your image in an effort to impress people who you really don’t want to impress. Spend money, instead, on your own development and your business to fuel your growth.
Rule#20: Say “No” more often: When you are not convinced – Say a ‘No’. When you don’t know – Say a ‘No’. Be straight forward in speaking out your mind. It helps!
These are simple yet life changing habits – Turn them into the rules of your life and there’s no way that you wouldn’t be successful. Make your success unavoidable by changing your habits.
