7 habits you can learn from successful people

  1. Work hard. Sorry, there is no substitute for just putting in the hours. 
  2. Plan.  Plan your day, plan your week and be accountable to yourself about what it is you need to do to reach your destination.  
  3. Have clear goals. Where do you want to be? How are you going to get there? Setting goals works to build your mental power, focus and resilience. 
  4. Take risks. It is scary to risk failing after trying your best.  Much easier to sort of try and then sort of do OK. However, successful people take that risk. Take the risk, try your best and if you fail learn from your mistakes and go again. 
  5. Read a lot. Not only will it make you a more interesting and interested person, you will enhance your comprehension skills and that will help you at school.
  6. Do what you are passionate about. Rather than being entirely motivated by marks or expectations, find subjects that you’re passionate about; it will make the hard work enjoyable.
  7. Take action and don’t procrastinate. Stop reading blogs ☺ and get on with it. What is on your plan?
