Daymond John: Six Habits of Successful People



The following was submitted by "Shark Tank" star and business mogul Daymond John. 

What makes someone successful?
It’s not money and it’s not luck.
I’ve said it time and time again, there is no secret formula.
Success is hidden in the daily habits you create. The most successful people maximize the time they have every single day. They have routines and productive habits that lead them to their goals.
Listen, the fact is we all have the same 24 hours. How you spend them is up to you. But don’t forget that time is our most valuable resource - you can’t get time back.
Think about how you spend your days:
Are you honestly using your time wisely? Are your habits truly productive?
How you choose to spend your 24 hours will define your success. So if you can’t answer yes to both of these questions, you need to commit to starting a few new habits today.
Here are 6 daily habits that productive and highly successful people swear by to help you get started:
  1. They read daily
  2. They make health a priority
  3. The look for opportunities
  4. They always remember their “why”
  5. They upgrade their mindset
  6. They work efficiently
Remember, the keys to making a new habit stick are discipline and consistent commitment. What's one habit you want to create for success?
If you’re looking for some other daily rituals successful people swear by, be sure to check out the paperback version of Rise and Grind, dropping March 26th.
