Habits of High Achievers


Aristotle said “We are what we repeatedly do.  Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”  High achievers have developed good habits such as goal setting, taking action and continuous improvement.  Build on on the success you have already achieved by improving at least one of the following:

1.  Conquer Fear

Fear is a goal stopper, think of the goals that you have set that you never achieved.  Think of how great it would be to achieve some of your goals in life.  Often we are afraid of the unknown.  If we learn to conquer our fear who knows what we could overcome.

2.  Eliminate Perfectionism

There is a healthy and unhealthy side of perfectionism.  The unhealthy side leads us to punish ourselves for things that we feel we did not do our best in.

3. End Procrastination

Stop talking and start doing, we can all set our goals and reset them over and over.  If we do this we will never get started. List your goals and stick to them.  There is no point lighting the fire if you are not going to keep it going.

  1. Rich,

    I think the first and last are the key to success. The most challenging aspect of any endeavour is to overcome the fear of our first step! Thanks for the reminder.

    Cheers Jim
