Around this time of year, we start to cast our mind forward and think about how we can make the coming year a success.
It might be making new year resolutions. Or writing down our goals.
But the real difference comes in taking action. Starting to work towards achieving these goals. This is where success starts.
I have found from reading about successful people and from observing what makes one person more successful than another, there appear to be 3 habits that set these people apart.
What are these habits?
1. Wake up early
This is a favourite of mine. Why can certain people create amazing results in their lives? We all have the same amount of time.
It’s how we use our time. What we do in those hours.
And it starts in the morning.
Having an early start to the day and a routine that you follow in the morning, sets the day up for success.
A great place to start is by reading Robin Sharma’s book, the 5am Club.
2. Create Accountability
Habits are only as good as how long they last.
Starting to take action is one thing, but keeping it going for enough time to see a difference in your life takes time.
The ups and downs of life can get in the way and one of the best ways to create success in your life is to have accountability. Have a person or multiple people regularly check in on you and your actions.
It could be by joining a club. Asking a friend to check in or join the action with you. Or by paying for a coach or adviser.
Accountability to someone other than yourself is a powerful motivation to keep going.
3. Use a personal journal
And finally, having a place to plan out and write down your goals, thoughts and actions on a daily basis is a key.
There are a heap of journals out there you can use.
I use the Best Self Journal here.
It is great to write out your quarterly goals, then break them down into weekly and daily actions. It also has an area for writing down random thoughts, which we all have.
So there you have it, those are the 3 Habits I will use to create success in 2020 and I hope you have taken some value from this and will use this time of year to reflect on how you can make 2020 a Financial Success.
