Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to do. In order to be successful at ANYTHING in life, you must first begin at step 1 and work your way up. By following some of these few habits that ALL successful people do everyday, you will then find yourself pushing past step 1.
#1 DON’T PRESS SNOOZE!
If you want to truly change your life and the success you achieve during it, first things first, WAKE UP! You are only hurting yourslef by sleeping in until 11:00am when the rest of the world has been getting closer to their dreams for the past 4 hours while you were sleeping. Let’s be real, you are not just pressing snooze on starting your day, you are snoozing your goals and dreams too.
#2 Eat breakfast!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for both your body and your brain. Just like our body’s muscles need energy for the day, so does our brain! Take care of your health, and your health will take care of you.
#3 Swallow the frog
Mark Twain was onto something when he suggested you should tackle your most challenging project first thing in the morning. My mornings are a time to tackle thought-intensive tasks, or approach projects with a new perspective. I consider 5 to 8 a.m. my power hours, and try to get through one significant undertaking by 8 a.m. every day. Just get it out of the way, and start noticing how much less stressful your life becomes.
Read a book. Read a magezine article, or even just read blog posts, but READ. Reading every single day will improve your life both mentally and also spiritually. Yes, we need strong healthy bodies to stay alive, strong muscles help us lift more weights, but without a strong mind, all of the rest will slowly start to fall apart.

#5 Stop putting so much pressure on yourself.
Relax! 1 bad day is not going to be the end of the world. Learn to have fun with life, life is too short to be serious all of the time. Sometimes not being in control is the most beautiful thing in the world. Take it day by day, and strive to making each day great, and slowly realize you are making your life great. The Great Wall of China was not built overnight, greatness takes time!
