One habit common in all successful people
Posted October 1, 2010on:
What is one common habit of all successful people? Is there one characteristic exhibited by all people whom we consider successful in their lives? Let’s take a look around: famous scientists, famous writers, politicians, artists, businessmen – what make them most successful?
Is there any formula for success? If lives of all successful people are studied, we might come across a three step formula for success and one habit which is common to all successful people. The three step success formula can be described as DAP. What is DAP?
We can be successful in every project and every aspect of life if we:
exactly what we want, we write it down and make a plan to achieve it.
2. Take Action.
Once decision is made, next step is to launch towards our goal. It is said that successful people step out in faith. They take the first step with no guarantee of success. They take off on the journey.
3. Be Prepared
Third step is to make continual corrections, every hour and every day of our life as we fly towards our destination. Successful people expect an inevitable, unavoidable, and unbroken series of problems, difficulties, reversals, setbacks, and crises every day and week of your life. Since they cannot avoid them, their aim is to respond to them effectively
And now: one characteristic of all successful people.
They never quit!
Successful people face challenges of life and deal with situations with one view: Do it again and again till they are successful. Here are very motivating and captivating verses which reminds us not to quit – You may take a printout and place in room where you can see it daily:
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about – When he might have won had he stuck it out
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow— You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out—
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit—
Its when things seem worst that – you must not quit.
Above ideas are from Brian Tracy’s book: Flight Plan.
