  • Hi everyone.

  • Welcome back to Lavendaire.

  • Today I want to share

  • 23 habits of highly successful people.

  • These are habits that I've learned

  • from reading books, articles, and also, casually interviewing the most successful people

  • I know in my life.

  • These are habits that I think are really important for all of us to be aware of,

  • but don't worry if you're not super great at all of these habits.

  • Nobody's perfect.

  • The first step is to be aware of the habit, and the next step is to just work on it every

  • day.

  • It's always a practice.

  • Alright, here we go.

  • The most successful people always take full responsibility for their life.

  • They never complain, nor do they blame others for their problems.

  • They take responsibility for all the good AND the bad in their life.

  • They know that even though they can’t always control what happens TO them,

  • they can always control how they RESPOND to those events.

  • They can choose to respond in a positive and productive way.

  • Because of this, successful people are always optimistic for their future.

  • Next: Successful people always know their priorities and do the most important tasks

  • first.

  • They know that the content of what they work on MATTERS.

  • So it’s better to be effective

  • on the right tasks, than efficient with the smaller, less meaningful tasks.

  • Successful people also create their own morning routine.

  • The key to super productive days

  • is to start them right.

  • Choose activities that energize and inspire you, see what daily tasks

  • you can get out of the way early on, and build your morning around those tasks.

  • I personally like to drink water, take my vitamins, journal, and exercise before I start

  • working.

  • Next: Most successful people practice daily meditation or some sort of mindfulness practice,

  • whether it’s journaling, morning pages, or something like the Five Minute Journal.

  • Tim Ferriss stated that out of all the successful people he’s interviewed,

  • more than 80% have some form of meditation or mindfulness practice every day.

  • Another key to success is to make health and exercise a priority.

  • Research says that regular exercise and a healthy diet can lead to higher levels of

  • productivity,

  • happiness, motivation, and, not surprisingly, your ability to live longer.

  • Successful people

  • take care of their bodies because they know it affects all other areas of their life.

  • Another habit that all successful people have in common is they read and learn continuously.

  • Bill Gates reads 50 books a year.

  • Warren Buffett reads 600-1000 pages a day.

  • Elon Musk learned how to build rocket ships by reading books.

  • But successful people don’t just read anything.

  • They're highly selective about what they read,

  • so they usually choose knowledge and learning over entertaining books.

  • Another key habit is to have discipline and self-control.

  • Successful people know

  • how to stay focused and not fall for distractions or FOMO.

  • Their priorities are solid, and they keep their eyes on the goal.

  • The most successful people are also extremely consistent.

  • There’s so much power in consistency,

  • because small consistent actions is how you build anything great.

  • To practice your consistency, try doing something for 21 days straight.

  • If you fall off, start the 21 days over again.

  • The longer you can stay consistent at something,

  • the more likely you will succeed at it.

  • Successful people will also follow through with what they say.

  • They take their promises

  • and commitments seriously.

  • When they say they are going to do something,

  • they are going to do it.

  • They don’t give excuses, only results.

  • Another thing they do is they persist and persevere.

  • Successful people don’t give up easily.

  • They stay in the game no matter what.

  • One quote that I constantly told myself

  • and wrote in my phone in the beginning of my career was:

  • No matter how hard it is or how bad it gets, I’m going to make it!”

  • That mindset seriously helped me stay persistent in reaching my goals.

  • Successful people also aren’t afraid to fail.

  • They know that failure is good,

  • because failure is just a learning opportunity.

  • It teaches you what doesn’t work,

  • so you can try something else.

  • Oprah says, “There is no such thing as failure.

  • Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction.”

  • The most successful people hone their craft daily and sharpen the saw.

  • What they do is, they work on their craft every day, by practicing and making small

  • improvements,

  • so that over time they become very, very good at what they do.

  • Ask yourself: What’s your craft?

  • What skills are important for your career?

  • And then work on sharpening those skills every day.

  • Another habit is to be self-aware.

  • Successful people know their strengths and their weaknesses,

  • and use them to their advantage.

  • They know how they are doing, and they are aware

  • of the areas where they need to improve.

  • So they're confident, but theyre also humble.

  • Another habit is to practice gratitude.

  • Tony Robbins says, “Success without gratitude

  • is the biggest failure of all.”

  • Gratitude is the key to living a happy and successful life.

  • Without it youll always be yearning for more, more, and more.

  • With gratitude, youll know how wonderful your life already is,

  • and be thankful for how far youve already come.

  • Successful people also have a solid support system.

  • Whether it's a partner, friends, family,

  • a mentor, coach, or some sort of community.

  • It doesn’t have to be a big group.

  • It can be just a handful of people to rely on and bounce ideas off of.

  • Another key thing that all successful people do is: They surround themselves

  • with like-minded achievers.

  • I’m sure weve all heard of the quote,

  • You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with,” and it’s

  • so true.

  • Successful people surround themselves with people they can learn from

  • and people who inspire them in their journey.

  • Successful people are also goal oriented.

  • Not only do they SET goals,

  • they also make the detailed plans on how to achieve those goals,

  • and then follow through with their plans.

  • They know that execution is more important than ideas.

  • Another habit of successful people is: They are proactive and take initiative.

  • They don’t wait around for things to just fall in their lap.

  • If they want something,

  • they go out and make it happen.

  • Successful people also know how to manage their emotions.

  • They are aware of how their emotions influence their thoughts and behavior,

  • and so they learn how to detach from any emotions that aren’t serving them.

  • They know there is a right place and time for exploring their emotions.

  • Sometimes you have to set your emotions aside to get the work done.

  • Successful people also communicate clearly.

  • Every great leader is a great communicator.

  • They speak with authority and confidence.

  • And they talk about their ideas

  • in a way that connects deeply with their audience and moves them.

  • These people are also great listeners.

  • They listen to what others have to say,

  • ask questions, and write things down.

  • They do this so that they can learn

  • and fully understand a situation, or get the details right in fixing a situation.

  • You'll also find that the most successful people value their alone time.

  • They take time alone to think and connect to their intuition,

  • which helps give them a clearer direction in life.

  • They use that alone time

  • to recharge but also strategize for their future.

  • Lastly, most successful people love the journey more than the result.

  • They learn how to enjoy the process, rather than do everything for the end goal.

  • That’s how they stay committed, consistent, and persistent for the long run.

  • Ultimately, that means that if you love what you do,

  • then you have the best chance to be successful at it.

  • Alright, those were 23 habits of highly successful people.

  • Of course, there are more habits,

  • but I think this was a pretty good start.
