10 habits of extremely successful women
By Brittany Cherrell
Success has many different definitions for everyone. One’s definition is not more important than the other. However, success does have some basic habits and fundamentals. People often think there is a “secret” to success. I am here to tell you that success is PREDICTABLE. When I first heard that statement it changed everything for me. I am confident if you follow these habits you will get the success you desire. Here are 10 habits of extremely successful women.
“Behind every successful woman is herself.”
Successful Women Bet on THEM!
In the words of Beyonce “ Me, Myself, and I” that is what you are working with day in and day out. Successful women have a focused on what THEY can do Mindset.
Here is the deal. We all have people in our life that we love and know that they would do anything for us. I don’t mean to ditch them! What I am referring to here is who you have to look at, to make success a reality.
The beauty of this world is that we all aspire for different things. The best relationships allow the individuals to become who they truly feel they are meant to be.
Don’t expect everyone to be on board with your dreams. We all are different! Nobody thinks the same, and that’s the beauty of YOU.
The important thing is to be in an environment where you can grow and learn without resistance.
It’s like a “greenhouse.” They are meant to be an environment for plants to grow and blossom, right?
As a human, I can stand in a greenhouse all day long, but I will not gain anything from it as the plant will. Am I just going to get mad at the plants because they do?
So LOVE those folks that LOVE you, but it’s OK to rely on YOURSELF to make your dreams come true.
What this also means is don’t wait for someone’s stamp of approval. If you want success in your life GO FOR IT!
Successful women goal plan
All too much we look at these people like Oprah and focus on where they are now. My friends if you are just looking at success from a point of those having already achieved it, you are on the wrong track.
Success is the outcome of many years of following the success habits. Anything worth having in life is hard work! So you must plan to be successful.
I urge you to look at some of the people out there that inspire you. Whoever it is, look at their story! So many come from a place of lack or self-doubt and managed to get to the other side.
The way to plan for success is goal setting! Ugh, I know… I talk about this in EVERY POST!! LOL but it really is the foundation to success!
When you reach your goals, it won’t be a surprise because you already planned to get there!
they value their time
Time is one of the only things that is the same for everybody. We all have those precious 24 hours a day.
Successful women understand that their time is valuable.
When you are on a mission to achieve your goals you must be conscious of where, and who you spend your time on.
Things they don’t have time for
- Listening to Sally complain all day in the office
- Negative news
The list goes on, but you get the point. Anything that is not pushing you in the direction of achievement MUST go!
successful women are disciplined
They know what has to be done and make themselves do it. Whether they feel like it or not!
This is just one of those things you cannot get away from. To do anything meaningful in life it will REQUIRE discipline.
Discipline is NOT always wanting to do something. It is doing something despite not wanting to do it.
Once you come to a place of acceptance with this I promise it gets easier.
Quit trying to skip the struggle!
They choose their friends wisely
They say you are an average of the five people you associate with most. So you must be around people going places if you want to as well.
Now you definitely don’t have to tell your friend of 20 years from high school you are done with her, but you have to monitor how much TIME you are giving to those not assisting you with getting closer to your goals.
What are the people you spend the most time with daily doing?
Take an inventory of this, and adjust accordingly.
Successful women focus on personal development
We live in a country with a plethora of resources to gain knowledge in ANY area of life.
It’s a shame how many neglect the power of developing the mind.
In my opinion, it is super important to just READ! Whether it be a paperback book or kindle fire
Fill up so you can pour out. Growing the mind is not just about you. It’s about what you can share with others to help them.
So, when is the last time you have read something thought-provoking? If you have a great read, please let me know! I am always looking for new books I haven’t read yet
They block out naysayers
They simply DO NOT HAVE TIME! I mean really have you ever seen a hater doing better than you? Just saying!
They are grateful
They realize one thing ” If you are grateful for what you have, you will always end up having more.” “If you are not grateful for what you have, you will never have enough.”
They realize that mind, body, and spirit matter
In my opinion, one cannot function properly without the other. It is super important to nourish these 3 important aspects of your life. In most cases we assume that mind and spirit are in order for those who achieve great success, but what about the body?
It is so important to take care of your temple. Eat healthy, rest, exercise.
If you are going to conquer the world you MUST have the energy, the stamina to do so!
