The Power of Habits

Would you like to know the good habits that will help you to prosper in life?

Have you been struggling like most of us with developing good habits?

If you develop these habits, you will see a boost in your finances as well as other areas of life.

Here are 15 such habits that will help you to prosper in life.

1. Dream big

The very first habit that you should develop is to start dreaming big.

You must broaden your horizons and start thinking big.

Use your imagination and start seeing yourself as prosperous and successful.

Avoid any negative self-image of yourself and only think positively.

2. Network with like-minded people

The second thing that you must do to attain success is to network with like-minded people.

Always remember that teamwork is dream work.

What few people can accomplish together is much more than what you can achieve alone.

So always get in touch with like-minded people and start the give and take of ideas.

You never know when one idea may click and bring success to all of you.

3. Plan well ahead

Another important habit that you must develop is the habit of planning well ahead of time.

Get in the habit of planning things much before the actual action takes place.

By planning things beforehand, you will have an advantage over the situation.

4. Get up early

Develop the habit of getting up early in the morning. You must have an early morning routine. Most successful people have their early morning routine and they also have a daily routine.

Many successful businessmen who are millionaires get up early in the morning. Some get up at 4 o'clock while others get up at 5:00 or 5:30. Getting up early in the morning gives you more time to plan for the day and start early.

You may find it difficult to get up early for the first few days, but once it becomes a habit it will come to you naturally. You must get out of your comfort zone if you want to accomplish something great in life.

5. Stay focused

Nobody ever did anything of any worth without staying focused. Staying focused is one secret of all successful people.

Staying focused also means removing all distractions that take away attention from the main goal. Take note of things that are distractions and then remove them immediately.

6. Invest in yourself

Successful people always invest in themselves. The investment is in terms of time as well as money. They take time to study themselves and improve their life wherever needed.

In terms of money, they buy courses and hire coaches so that they can do better in life. They don't see these costs as expenses, but they see them as investments that will bring returns later on.

7. Spend time reading books

Develop the habit of reading many books. Leaders are readers. Reading will develop your mind, your thinking, and your knowledge.

It will help increase your vocabulary and writing skills as well. There are many benefits of reading books. Successful entrepreneurs like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett read books daily.

8. Avoid time wasters

Develop the habit of prioritizing your tasks as important and unimportant. Look out for time-wasting activities and remove them completely.

Also, be on the lookout for people who are time wasters and avoid them as well. Your time is very precious and you cannot afford to waste it in any way.

9. Learn to take calculated risks

Learn to take calculated risks if you want to go ahead in life. Nobody can move forward unless they learn to take risks. It should not be a shot in the dark, but it should be calculated risks.

There is this principle which states that low risks bring low rewards. High risks bring high rewards. No risk brings no rewards.

If you don't learn to take risks, then you won't be able to taste success.

10. Write down your goals

An important habit that you must form is to write your goals in a journal or diary.

If you don't write down things, you tend to forget them quickly. Something as important as your goals must definitely be written down to remind you about them.

You can also write down your goals on small cards and put them in your purse. That will ensure that you look them up several times during the day.

11. Live on less than you make

Develop the habit of living within your means. Never go into debt and avoid the vicious cycle of borrowing funds.

Learn to live according to your income and you will be alright. Some people are in the habit of taking loans on their credit cards and they are in trouble already.

12. Make your health a priority

Don't forget to live healthy in all areas of life. Your physical health is very important in the overall scheme of things.

If your body is not functioning well, then you can't do anything. So eat well, spend time exercising, and sleep well.

13. Only do work that matters to you

Undertake work that is contributing to your goals. Avoid any other type of work.

Learn to know what will help you achieve success and do those things only.

It helps to know which activities will contribute to your goals. Keep doing those activities over and over again. Remove all unproductive tasks from your to-do list.

14. Learn from people you admire

Every person has someone whom they consider a hero. Learn about their life, habits, and values.

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. This means it is better to learn from the experiences of others. Learning from their practical knowledge is a wise thing to do.

15. Cultivate an attitude of gratitude

Last, but not least, cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Gratefulness will increase your chances of success.

Be thankful for everything. It will open the way for you to accomplish more things and become successful.

There is something magical about gratefulness. It attracts success and prosperity. That is basically what the Law of Attraction is all about.

Thank you Cijini for your comment. Yes, joining like-minded people is indeed very important. They will spur you on towards your goals and encourage you. They understand your journey to a large extent because they are on the same journey.

Yes, Meenal you are correct. Mobile phones can be a blessing if used properly. It can be a big distraction too. I can understand the predicament you are in. I believe that for you, the cell phone is very much necessary for learning. One suggestion I can give you is to shut down the notifications totally or then put them on silent. By doing this, you won't be distracted every time a notification pops up. I hope this helps you. Thank you.

Mr. Murali Krishna thank you so much for your wonderful and encouraging comments. You are right, role models is the need of the hour. People need some good role models to emulate and follow.

Meenal from Singapore on April 03, 2020:

I came across your article and I wanted to read it because I believe in working on my habits . You said to avoid distractions and remove them immediately. These days mobile and its app are big distraction. As a home maker with two kids, I need my mobile for listening to audio books or youtube talks all the time especially during kitchen work .sometimes when message beep comes..i get distracted to check it and and end up wasting time. I need to work on this.

Halemane Muralikrishna from South India on March 26, 2020:

Good cultured individuals are the beauty of society. Civilised communities with such role models have kept on improvising upon habits to form prominent leaders of the regions and nations. So, each point of your article is worth noting in the diary for reference, Mr Nitin.
