1. Pursue Knowledge
Successful people are constantly learning and gaining knowledge. In fact, 85% of millionaires read two or more books every month (Tom Corley, Rich Habits). You should consider nurturing interests across a range of topics to suit your career goals while pursuing higher certificate courses and business short courses to keep evolving and growing your capabilities.
2. Master Your Field
To stand out, you’ll need to know more about your field than anyone else and to achieve this you truly need love what it is you’ve chosen to do as a career or business. You need to be happy to immerse yourself in it completely. This is because It takes time, effort and practice to master a craft. Some of the best career advice you’ll ever get is to invest this time now so that it can pay off later.
3. Follow Your Gut
Your intuition can help you clear out all the noise from your competition and the industry you’ve chosen. Keep your intuition in mind when something feels not right, or when it’s telling you to go for it. Your gut is unbiased, doesn’t have an agenda and can’t stab you in the back. Have the courage to follow it to success, whether you’re managing people, a business or a specialised craft.
4. Be Health Conscious
Most successful people average at least 7 hours sleep a night and rise early, generally around 6 a.m. The affluent and influential are also usually big fans of working out and making exercise an integral part of their lives. After all, being successful will mean nothing without having good health to enjoy all of the rewards.
5. Find Inspiration
If you’re following your passion then you’ve already put yourself in a good place to find inspiration in the work you do every day. However, take this a step further and also surround yourself with literature and activities that inspire you when you’re not working. Gravitate towards having highly-motivating people in your personal network too.
