“Successful people do as successful people did” – it’s a new quote I’ve just come up with. It’s based on an age-old concept, outlined in Think and Grow Rich, and many other subsequent books. Establishing great, successful habits is something all successful people have to do…

Habit-forming

Nigel Botterill, although I’ve never met him, has been a very successful man. Starting 8 £1M+ businesses in 8 years, he has a trick or two up his sleeve. And one of these he mentions ALL THE TIME and I believe is key to becoming successful – the first thing you do every day should be to attract new customers – as without new customers, you have no business.

Simple, huh? Well it gets better – he goes on to suggest that for 90 minutes every morning, before even checking your emails, you should be doing something to market your business. This adds up to 7.5 hours a week (almost a full day) of simply advertising your business!

 

Some suggested habits for becoming successful:

  • Being grateful for the things you have – you then appreciate it more
  • Take action – you only have two outcomes – successes or lessons
  • Celebrate success – you will grow to crave success and acheive more as a result
  • Read quotes, excerpts or articles from successful business owners
  • Affirmations – give yourself positive suggestions and remind yourself how well you are doing
  • Surround yourself with successful people and talk to them often – it will rub off on you

There are many more habits to becoming successful that you could be getting into, and I would welcome any suggestions from you!
