Life Hacks Successful People Know
Brian Tracy, Motivational Speaker
Not everyone follows the same path to success. With that said though there are certain traits that most successful people have in common. If you have been looking for a way to quickly boost your own progress towards your goals, here are some qualities that all successful people use almost every day.
Wake up early
Successful people wake up early. The morning hours are the most valuable hours in the entire day. Successful people recognize this and they take full advantage of these valuable hours by waking up as early as possible. A recent study on self made millionaires found that most of them get up before 6:00 and begin work immediately.
Waking up earlier than normal as usable hours to your day each day and it forces you to go to bed earlier. If you start waking up just one hour earlier each morning you’ll have an extra 30 hours a month and an extra 360 hours a year to get more accomplished. Best of all the early morning hours will also be when you are at your most refreshed and motivated. If you use these hours to get ahead on your most important tasks you’ll have finished before anyone else is awake. One of my favourite quotes comes from a person who said “the first hour is the rudder of the day”. The first hour establishes the direction of your activities.
Hang out with other successful people
One of the most important secrets of successful people to success is this. You tend to become like the people you spent most of your time with. This can be either a benefit or a drawback depending who your closest friends are. For successful people it is most often a benefit. As successful people tend to gang out with other successful people. If you want to be successful yourself you should do the same. Human beings have a subconscious evolutionary tendency to mimic and adopt the traits of the people they spend the most time with. It’s a process that encourages bonding between individuals. But it’s also one that can offer many more benefits. Beyond this if you hang out with the right people, spending time with the right people will cause you to adopt their same mindset, their traits and more increasingly their own odds of becoming successful.
Read as much as possible
There’s one thing that almost all successful people all leaders have in common. It’s the fact that they are avid readers. Warren Buffett reads 5 to 6 hours every day and he’s one of the richest people in the history of the world. We live in an era where it is possible to read unlimited amounts of information on an unlimited range of topics. Today it’s possible to teach yourself almost anything as long as you have an internet connection and time to spend reading. Get in the habit of reading as much as possible and set you on a path of continuous education.
Plan your day the night before
Successful people plan their day the night before they go to sleep each day. Successful people take the time to plan out what they want to accomplish the next day. Planning out your day the night before can provide you with the road map to your day. It’s a great way to structure your tasks and activities each day and it’s also a great source of motivation as well. Each night before you go to bed take time to write what you want to accomplish the next day. Then rank those tasks from the most important to less.
