There are a few common habits of highly successful people who have turned their dreams into reality. People who have a vision or goal don’t always get there from having financial means, but actually a few common habits that have helped them get to where they are. The best part is that you, too, have the opportunity to do the same!
As the famous quote by Wayne Dyer goes, “Change the way you look at things and things you look at will change.” Life is all about perspective, and if there’s one thing that all successful people have in common, it’s their perception on life’s challenges.
So what makes highly successful people different than everybody else? Here are five, surefire ways they manifest their own positive outcomes.
They see challenges as opportunities.
A current crisis offers the chance to re-evaluate how you live your life, to be more mindful and strategic, and to take stock of your values and priorities.
How you respond to crises has a lot to do with the lens through which you regularly perceive the world.
If you tend to see the world through a “gloom and doom” lens, you may be reacting to current events with feelings of fear, anxiety, or a sense of despair.
The solution? Change the lens from which you view the world! Below is an example on how to do this.
Challenge: Sales are down and business is slow. Opportunity: Use this slow time to get your office organized, update your marketing materials, and reconnect with past customers you’ve had no time to call.
It’s important to recognize that there are some challenges that are simply beyond your control, so turn your attention to those challenges with opportunities you can act upon.
They’ve learned to be comfortable being uncomfortable.
To grow, these like-minded individuals embrace the discomfort. It feels awkward. It’s uncomfortable. You’re out of your comfort zone.
But if you stay in your comfort zone, that’s not where your growth is.
Your growth is where discomfort is. You grow your greatest by exploring and expanding your capabilities. You have to leave the nest to spread your wings.
To unleash your potential, and expand what you’re capable of, you have to embrace change and discomfort is a part of the path.
There’s no precise formula for success, but if you take a hold of these simple ways of life, you’re headed on the right track.
