10 Success Habits to Reach the Next Level (Achieving Your Goals)

achieve your goals

I will not be talking about drinking enough water or waking up early, because these are the normal things people should be doing anyways. Instead, I will list some of the most efficient habits of success you can incorporate in your daily routine, so that will help you reach the goal you dream, or become the person you want.

1. More action and less talking

Most of us with grand ideals and big dreams for success fall into a bad habit of talking a lot or thinking a lot about what we want to do some day. Of course it’s great to have dreams and visualize those things we want, but we also don’t want to be caught up wasting too much time just talking or thinking.

Important Ingredients Towards A Successful Online Business

Stay focused for success

To have an online business you need two things, namely, something to sell and someone to sell to. This is the essence of any business on the net in a simplified manner.

But if you get more seriously about making money online, you need several things to put together for real success in this field. And the good news is, you can be successful in online business because you have at hand all the ingredients you need.

Here are the three ingredients you need to start with:

Focus

If you think seriously about online business, you should know, the first thing you need is the ability to concentrate or focus. And I say this from personal experience. Without this ability you can not succeed.

There are people who were born with this ability (perhaps they are more fortunate in this regard), but there are people who were not. For them is a little harder but not impossible. They can learn how to keep focusing on important things.

Why I say that the power to concentrate is the first ingredient in the success of online business? I say this, because the Internet is very diverse. And with so much diversity of information, ideas and opportunities, you can get lost very easily.

You can jump from one idea or opportunity to another without going too far, and success means to finish what you started.

Training

The second ingredient would be a proper training and support. That means, you do not have to reinvent the wheel, because someone already did before you. That is true, and there is quality references and documentation about online business, if you know where to look.

It’s much harder to start from scratch, to learn all that stuff by yourself and then to try what works and what does not.

It is easier to follow someone who already walked that road, and has already experienced a lot, even if it costs you something. Without training, without a course or study and appropriate support will be much harder to succeed.

Action

The third thing would be pure action, meaning the implementation of the theory. But it is not enough to theoretically know how the things go.

It is not enough to have lots of new ideas. You have to do steps. One after another. You must put your knowledge into practice every day, and so will begin to move things toward your success.

Tips To Get Better in Time Management

Techniques for time management

Time management has an important role in goal setting. In this article are presented three excellent tips that will help you organize your time better and to use the most of every minute in every day.

Repeated positive affirmations:

Positive affirmations are essential in time management, below are listed a few methods to help you stay positive.

Thus, positive statements must be..

– Present tense
– Short, concise and clear
– Credible
– And most important, and often overlooked, should be positive. Even if it seems a play on words, and you think it’s normal that positive affirmations are positive, a lot of people use negative statements. For example, instead of saying “I do not want to be fat” say “I’ve lost 3 pounds”. Or instead of “I don’t want to fail the license exam”, say to yourself “I took the exam!” (remember, the statements must be in the present tense).

Here are some examples of positive affirmations that you can use to get better in time management:

– I’m excellent in time management
– I am always punctual
– I use all my time to be productive
– I am very organized
– I go easily through all tasks assigned to me
– You can use as many such statements, provided that they meet the four essential rules listed above.

Visualization:

About visualization we discussed in detail in another article on this site. If you want to know more about this process, I recommend reading the article Law of Attraction, Visualization. I will not go into every detail about visualization, but I will present just how to apply it to become better with time management.

In the morning, after taking breakfast, lie in bed for 5-10 minutes and try to visualize how you want to proceed that day that just begun. Imagine your time so that you realize all the activities that you have noted on the list the night before. See how quickly and effectively you will meet each task that you must do and how you will increase your confidence and gain more courage, and how you think you can accomplish anything you propose.

The key to this exercise is to feel truly that you manage to use your time and live within the sense of satisfaction offered by the fulfillment of all tasks in the shortest time possible.

Choose a model:

This is another very important tip in time management and means to choose a person you really respected and to be a model for you in terms of time management. For example, many young people, when they start bodybuilding workouts, choose a model and trains very hard, hoping that one day will look like their idol (a lot at first, do not know exactly about involving in bodybuilding and what factors determine the development of muscle mass at such professional levels, but what really matters is that they have chosen a model and do everything they can to become like that).

Probably many of you have real models from the real life in various fields. But no matter what field it is, the idea is that you must choose a model and try to become at least as good as that model. Do what it does, work like it and attempt to imitate positive and constructive actions.

The Importance of Setting Goals

Setting your goals

Setting goals is essential for success. All successful people set goals and work their day to meet them. Your ability to set your goals is the most important factor for success.

Perhaps the greatest discovery in human history is the power of your mind to create and mold life. As you know, “we become what we think.” Many successful people were asked: “What are the things that you think most of the time?”. And the answer most often given to this question is that most of the time, they think about their goals, what they want to achieve and how to achieve it.

Why we do not set goals?

Now probably you wonder: if it is so important and so easy, why not everyone sets their clear and concise goals and work every day to meet them? There are several reasons why most of us do not set goals:

– Many do not realize the importance of establishing objectives. If you come from an environment where those around you did not have specific goals in life or do not talk about setting goals, certainly you do not know how important it is to set goals and work daily to meet them.

– Another reason is fear of failure. Many of us have had failures in life, failures that have marked so much that now, we fail again for fear, avoid doing things that we are not sure we can do.

– Also, fear of rejection is another important reason to keep us from setting targets. We fear that if we plan something and we don’t succeed, those around us will laugh at us, we will criticize or ridicule us. This is why it is better not to tell anyone what you set out to accomplish. Eventually, if you want someone to share your goals with, do it with loved ones, someone you know and trust that will help and will support you, rather than discourage you.

– The fourth reason is that we don’t know how to set goals. Let’s say we know how important it is to have clearly defined objectives, we have no fear of failure and we do not fear that people will criticize us if we fail. You took this decision to establish your goals, but you do not know exactly how to do this. Many of us feel that we have goals, because we want a “better life”, “more money”, “to be happy.”

These are just some dreams, some fantasies. This is one of the most common mistakes. We confuse hope with some concrete goals or desires. An objective is different from a hope or a dream. An objective is clear, concise, measurable, has a time limit and most importantly, it is written down. If we do not write our targets on a sheet of paper, the chances to meet them are significantly reduced.

Be in the top of 1%

Between 1979 and 1989 there was a study at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1979, graduates from the School of Business Administration (MBA) were asked if they have clear objectives in writing about what they plan to do in the future. Only 3% of them had concise well-defined objective, and plans for their achievement. 13% had plans, but they were not in writing and 84% had no objectives at all.

10 years later, in 1989, the same graduates were interviewed again. The 13% who had plans, but not in writing, earn on average two times more than the 84% who had no goal, and the 3% who had made plans with settled objectives and their achievements in writing, for average gain 10 times more than all the other 97% combined.

Numerous other studies show that only 3% of people have clear goals in writing and have plans for their achievement, and only 1% are reviewing their objectives and plans every day.
