3 Habits of Highly Successful People (No. 3 Might Surprise You)

Do you do these habits of highly successful people? More importantly, are you willing to do them today?

  1. They use positive self-talk. The scientific term for it is “experience-dependent neuroplasticity,” but in English, it means your thoughts and feelings determine the neural pathways in your brain. Complaining primes your brain to respond more negatively. Positive self-talk – including affirmations and gratitude – primes your brain for feeling good and staying motivated.
  2. They train, or practice, a lot. Successful people have a growth mindset, which means they know they can improve with practice. The opposite of that is a fixed mindset, which is when you believe your skill set is fixed and can’t improve. People with a growth mindset are more likely to learn new skills, take on new challenges and take calculated risks, all to get them where they want to go.
  3. They wander. What do Einstein, Nietzsche, Beethoven, Charles Dickens, Stephen King and Steve Jobs all have in common? They all took (or take, in King’s case) long walks, during which they let their minds wander. Scientists say walking can boost creativity up to 60 percent, even after just a few minutes!
