There is a definite reason why 5% of the world leads and the other 95% follow. First off the 5% are willing to go the extra mile. The 95% are willing to give you reasons why they don’t need to go the extra mile.
The 5% put in the long hard hours until they hit that tipping point and then things SLOWLY start to fall in place for them. The 95% sit back and again justify, clarify and provide all kinds of logical reasons why they shouldn’t have to put in those long hours.
Let me tell you – from a guy that has done it – there is no easy road to success. However there is always room for improvement as you move down the road.
Again if things are going the way you like them there’s no need to read on – BUT if there’s room for improvement by all means please read on.
10 Habits Successful People Give Up to Increase Their Productivity
By Carl Preston
What are you willing to do in order to reach success? It is common among people these days to be average and not stand out too much. But those who are successful do not fall under this category.
In order to stay on top of your game and reach the level of success you want, you need to follow a certain set of self-induced rules. Success is not something that happens by accident; if you want it bad enough, you will get it. Learn the habits that successful people have given up in order to reach their own success.
1. They don’t work in their comfort zone.
What is your comfort zone? Your comfort zone is defined as “A psychological state in which a person feels familiar, at ease, in control, and experiences low anxiety.” When you get outside of your comfort zone, it doesn’t mean that you should strive for a constant state of anxiety and stress. It simply means that, in order to grow, you should try new things and expand your horizons.
The reason we are comfortable in our comfort zone is because we are not taking risks when we are in this state. When we live in our comfort zones, we are living life like hamsters on a wheel, going around and around in a constant cycle, but going nowhere in our lives.
Famous motivational speaker, Les Brown, said it best with, “If you put yourself in a position where you have to stretch outside your comfort zone, then you are forced to expand your consciousness.”
2. They don’t do without first learning.
Learning is what we do best. The greatest thing about learning is the benefit that we receive in all aspects of our lives. Successful people strive to continue learning new things and expanding on things that they already know.
If we stop learning, then the only thing we can do is settle with what we already know; if we settle for that, then there is no way to expand our minds. Expansion is essential on the path to success. Since our minds require learning for expansion, we must never stop seeking new knowledge.
Imagine what would have happened if Bill Gates stopped learning and growing. The internet would be much more primitive than it is today. But because he followed his dreams and continued growing, he founded one of the biggest companies in the world and it is still flourishing and growing today.
3. They don’t fear asking for advice.
Richard Branson, a famous entrepreneur, stated, “When you need to make hard decisions, being able to discuss your ideas with entrepreneurs and business leaders who have solved similar problems can make all the difference.”
Asking for advice is not always easy…
