There are people who float through life in their halo of perfection and leave behind all their less fortunate comrades. How to become a person who does everything and always gets what he wants?
Have you ever met people who pass by all the stress and chaos of everyday life without touching or touching them? They simply float through life in their halo of perfection and leave behind everyone who feels not so … beautiful. What are we doing wrong?
What prevents us from becoming successful people who do everything and always get what they want?
Here are some of the habits of successful people who came closest to their ideal:
1. Focus on quality, not quantity
Successful people prioritize and resist petty weaknesses. Instead of sticking to little things and procrastinating, they do the most important things first, and spend the rest of the time on the pleasant little things. It helps release the tension and burden that hangs over you, preventing you from enjoying life.
2. First of all, take care of their health and well-being
People striving for excellence understand that they cannot achieve anything if they feel bad. Therefore, they prioritize their health and well-being: they exercise regularly, eat healthy foods, and leave time for quiet work and hobbies that help them relax.
3. Know their strengths and weaknesses
We all have strengths and weaknesses, but instead of trying to suppress them or ignore them, successful people agree with them and work on their weaknesses (the more you ignore your weaknesses, the stronger they become). It is also a great opportunity to maintain self-esteem.
4. Trust their instincts
Successful people trust themselves first and foremost. They do not care what others expect of them, they always know what they themselves expect of themselves and do it.
5. Set high standards
They not only set themselves high standards, but they also do not allow themselves to be intimidated by those standards. They understand that nothing is perfect, but they find deep satisfaction in doing tasks as well as possible. They understand that doing something well the first time is much better and easier than fixing the jambs later.
6. They have a plan
Successful people know what they really want, both professionally and personally. They know exactly what their life will look like if they keep moving towards their goal. And they never lower the bar by settling for less instead of what was originally intended.
7. Don't sacrifice creativity
Successful people do not let the prospect of lack of money intimidate themselves and are not sold into slavery for a piece of bread. They will not take on work that they are not interested in only in order to receive good fees for it. The threat of poverty, on the contrary, becomes a motivation for them to quickly realize their ideal.
8. Set realistic goals
People who succeed in everything never make unrealistic lists of tasks that even a robot cannot complete. There's always room on their to-do list for food, shower, and rest. After all, they value their health too much to drive themselves into a corner or constantly postpone planned tasks.
9. Do things consistently
Successful people know that multitasking doesn't lead to anything good.
10. Regularly adjust their course
The road to success is not a straight line, but a track on which you need to learn how to maneuver between cars, choose the right speed and turn in the right direction. Successful people constantly analyze their goals and the degree of their fulfillment, adjust the course and find new ways to achieve them.
11. Automate what cannot be changed
Instead of being annoyed about day-to-day activities, from which there is nowhere to go, they bring them to automatism. They automatically check e-mail, prepare food and clean the apartment, spend a minimum of time and energy on it, and then go about their business.
12. Do only what they are passionate about
There is simply nothing to add at this point.
13. Organize your working day in a smart way
They work from 30 minutes to one hour, after which they stop for a short break before the next shot. Sometimes they can work for four hours, sometimes for eight - it all depends on the amount of work that needs to be done today. They do whatever it takes to fulfill their plan, but they are not going to "burn out" at work.
14. Believe in their talent
It doesn't matter who (intentionally or not) tries to interrupt their thoughts and destroy goals, sow and grow seeds of doubt, perfect people know that they are doing exactly what is needed and exactly when it is needed. Their critics cannot boast of the same, so they quickly fade and fall off.
