What Are The Daily Habits of Successful People?

Ever wonder what differentiates successful people from the countless others who just scrape by, living from pay check to pay check?
How are successful people different from people who struggle most of their lives, trying to achieve financial freedom?

Are there any daily habits of successful people that makes them rich? If yes, what are these daily habits that you can follow?

Successful people are successful because they use the knowledge they have and apply it in their daily lives in order to be successful.
[For example: Almost everyone knows that exercise is beneficial to their health, yet how many of us exercise regularly?]

Successful people invest in themselves, they equip themselves with the knowledge and empower themselves with the tools to achieve their goals.
Successful people know that time is an invaluable, limited and a non – renewable resource that should not be equated with money. They don’t trade time for time.

The Secret To Success Is Taking Action.

There is no easy way to be successful, no matter how much you know and what your circumstances are, in the end it all comes down to taking action. Motivation & will power are helpful but do not last for long.

The best way to achieve success is to make success a habit.
By creating positive & powerful habits, taking action becomes simpler.

What are the Daily Habits of Successful People?

Daily Morning Routine

Successful people do not wake up each day with the intention to wing it. They create daily routines that help them power through each day. Having a daily morning routine not only sets the tone for the rest of the day, but by repeating a routine over time makes you more efficient and helps create powerful habits. Habits get stronger over time to a point where motivation and will power do not matter.

Do you need motivation or will power to brush your teeth each morning? Imagine if you could make exercise a part of your morning routine and do it long enough that it becomes a habit.

Self Improvement & Development

Successful people are in a continual state of learning and improvement.

Reading: Rather than spending too much time watching T.V, successful people invest time reading extensively. They read to get good at their areas of weakness, get better at their strong points. 
Exercise: Successful people realize personal health and well-being is much more valuable than money and they invest the time and money in their well being.

Build Valuable Network: There is an African proverb that goes like, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with people”. Successful people understand the value of building and maintaining valuable and meaningful relationships. Not only do you learn from the experiences of others, it helps you grow your circle of influence.

Wealth Management

Warren Buffet once said, “Wall Street is the only place that people ride to in a Rolls-Royce to get advice from those who take the subway”. Successful people don’t live from paycheck to paycheck but create multiple streams of revenue.

Most people don’t realize that money saved is actually money earned and by making a long term investment you already have 3 sources of revenue.

  1. I get inspired when I read about what successful people do in their daily life. Your article really gives a clear picture on this – especially the interesting infographic! I have some trouble cultivating a consistent exercise habit though. I tend to feel dread when it’s time to exercise. Any advice on this? Thanks for sharing this informative post!

    1. Hey Lilly,

      Is there a specific reason for this fear for exercise? For my personal experience, I found it very difficult to work out in the gym with mirrors all around me. So instead I switched to long walks on the beach, running [works for me on so many levels].

      It might be realistic to expect exercise to be fun all the time but it does have to mean you have to go to a gym to exercise and stay fit.

  2. This is a very timely post. I just started doing a few of these things myself. After slacking a little too much over the last few months I finally put a schedule together. There is no winging it. When you try to wing it, you wind up getting very little done.

    In addition to work, I’ve also started exercising again, and I’ve added that into my schedule too, as well as even reading time and a few other things. Since I’ve done this, there have only been a few tasks I haven’t finished, and only because of things that were out of my control, like a recent computer crash.

      1. Thank you for sharing superb in order. Your web position is accordingly cool. I’m impressed by the details that you have by this web locate. It reveals how nicely you appreciate this subject. Bookmarked this website summon, will extend move backward retpisenreng more articles.

  3. Hi Josh,

    I totally resonate with the morning routine. Ever since I started my online business, I don’t spend too much time rolling on the bed anymore.

    Considering that I also have a day job, it’s crucial that I spend at least an hour in the morning working on building my site. The same goes to after working hours as well – usually staying up till midnight to get things done.

    I have also cut down on a lot of social activities – they just make me spend more money and time on people who don’t really matter.

    Honestly, I have never been more focused in achieving my goals in life.

  4. Nice one, Josh.

    I love the little infographic you add. I definitely believe in relationships as well, as a blogger, I realize that is one of the shortest ways to visibility and recognition.

    I have some of these habits like visualising your dream and reading about the topics you mentioned but no the other that I believe are as necessary like waking up early, follow as routine and take care of my health.

    They are absolutely needed though, sometimes with the buzz of life I get lazy about working out among other things and this is a great reminder.


    1. Hey Anh,

      Actually there is morning routine that I created and followed but as you said it’s quite easy to fall off the wagon and get caught up in life. To prevent from getting too caught up, I at least keep one day aside in a month when I do nothing but just reflect on my progress, relax and recharge. I think for me it is very important that I do that to avoid getting burnt out completely

  5. Great article Josh on the daily habits of successful people. I think, for me, there’s no question that I’m well on my way to mastering #1 (self-development) and #3 (managing wealth). I’ll admit that I could probably do a little better when it comes to networking, but I think that will come naturally with time to some degree. Great food for thought, thanks!

  6. The infographic is informative, and the content overall can be a use for people whose lives are currently in the down. The daily habits can be a start for someone’s overall long-term success, for somebody willing not wishing simply to have a better life. After all, insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
