The Secret Daily Habits Millionaires Practise That Make Them Successful
Ever feel like each year that passes goes by faster than the last? Same here!
Sometimes it feels like there isn't enough hours in the day to get everything done (while staying sane).
Over the last 2 to 3 years I've learned to be more at peace with this.
It all comes down to maximizing your productivity.
This is a habit that the world's top performers practise.
Think about it...
Steve Jobs had the same 24 hours in a day that we do.
I'm also assuming that he had a much longer to-do list than any of us could ever imagine.
But he managed to accomplish great things before passing away a few years ago.
Ultimately it comes down to honestly auditing yourself and making your priorities clear.
That, and staying disciplined while managing your expectations.
The reality is that we can only effectively get so many things done in a given day before we risk burning out.
To find out what it takes, keep reading to discover the secret daily habits millionaires practise...
They Get A Few Small Wins To Build Momentum
Capture that “winning” feeling and run with it!
Checking one or two of the smaller things off your to-do list as early as possible will help you get motivated to tackle the more demanding tasks ahead of you.
For example, instead of sending an important email to your boss first thing in the morning try replying to a few of the less urgent ones first.
This habit will help you get in the right headspace.
Being in the right headspace encourages you to be more productive and ultimately get your message across more clearly.
You're basically warming up your brain like you would your body before a workout.
Trying To Build A New Habit?
Your willpower is at it's highest first thing in the morning (or at least after your coffee kicks in).
So if you’re looking to add a new habit to your daily routine (like working out) this is the best time of day to make it happen!
You’re less likely to action on something outside of your comfort zone as the day wears on and your attention units become depleted.
Think about it for a second.
After a long day of work, commuting back and forth, and making small talk with your coworkers what would you rather do?
Put your feet up and unwind or muster up the discipline to learn a new skill?
Initially it might not be easy but you'll thank yourself later for buckling down.
They Often Meditate or Visualize
Believe it before you see it...
At least that's how most people intend to achieve their goals.
There's a reason why only a small percentage of people actually do live the lives most others dream of.
This being one of the main ones.
Rather than waiting for the results to show up, successful people envision already having achieved it.
Essentially faking it until they make it.
I've found that the most effective way of doing this is to spend around 30 minutes visualizing during your morning routine.
First define what your ideal life would look and feel like.
Get as specific as possible without overthinking it.
After that, all you need to do moving forward is embody how you'd feel if you already accomplished what you've envisioned.
My suggestion is to consistently practise this every day for at least 30 days.
Setting a goal like this will make it more likely that you'll integrate this habit into your daily ritual.
They Dedicate Time Daily To Reading
Millionaires and billionaires have rarely made it to the top on their own.
In one way or another they've had a mentor who's showed them the ropes.
This usually comes in the form of working with that mentor face-to-face.
Of course getting someone like Bill Gates or Richard Branson to guide you isn't exactly easy (not impossible though).
Rather than being able to work with high-calibre individuals in person, many successful people resort to reading instead.
After all, a biography of someone successful like Branson or Gates is a summary of all of their lessons learned.
According to Rich Habits author, Tom Corley, 88% of wealthy people read 30 minutes daily and 58% of them read biographies.
Why is this important?
Corley goes on to say that by increasing their knowledge, wealthy people are able to recognize more opportunities.
This translates into earning more money ;)
Don't have enough time to read?
If so, you may want to reconsider your priorities.
Working Out Is A High Priority
Want to know a successful habit the top 1% live by everyday?
They all exercise first thing in the morning!
Doing so will give you a boost of endorphins that will help you power through the day.
Not only that, but it’s also a great way to clear your head before diving into one meeting after another.
It also accelerates your metabolism so there’s no need to feel guilty if you indulge in a bagel or two for breakfast.
