9 Powerful Habits to Be Successful at a Young Age

Did you ever wonder how some people are so successful at a young age?

A great idea, motivation, a little bit of luck is helpful, but there are also common habits that most successful people share.

Here are 9 habits that help these successful people to rise up;

How to be Successful at a Young Age?

1) Meditate

Bridgewater Associates founder Ray Dalio said to The Huffington Post in 2013;

"The greatest element of my achievement today is more meditation than anything else in my life."

Dalio is not the only one who thinks like that. The names such as Oprah, Rupert Murdoch, Russell Simmons, Arianna Huffington, Bill Ford and Padmasree Warrior also say that meditation is a big influence of success.

Taking care of your body and your mind by relaxing, exercising, eating well and sleeping at a sufficient level increases your chances of being successful.

2) Get Up Early.

President Obama, Richard Branson, Jack Dorsey, Larry Schult, Tim Cook and CEO of Xerox Ursula Burns are known to be early risers.

How has this contributed to their achievements? Because early risers are able to start their days ahead of everyone else by responding to others, exercising and finding some personal time, early risers also tend to be happier and are more proactive.

3) Set-Up a Communication Network.

Successful people realize the importance of networking. In fact, research has found that networking can lead to people performing better at work and increases the chance of landing a job. Networking helps successful people to be more innovative. According to Dale Carnegie’s classic “How To Win Friends & Influence People” successful people rarely complain or criticize. They try to be empathetic.

4) Find Something That Keeps You Busy.

Achievers like LBJ and Robert Moses were known to work 60-65 hours per work. Elon Musk works a whooping 80-100 hours per week and has said;

“That's the type of work ethic an entrepreneur needs to have.”

5) You Must Know When to Say "No"

“The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.” - Warren Buffett

Successful people realize that by saying "no" to negativity, extra work and activities that waste time, they can focus on increasing their productivity. If they say "yes" to everyone or everything, they’ll be too distracted and will not accomplish tasks that have to be done.

6) Do not Watch TV, Read Something Instead.

According to Thomas Corley, author of "Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits Of Wealthy Individuals” 67 percent of rich people only watch TV for one hour or less per day. Corley also found only 6 percent of the wealthy watch reality shows, while 78 percent of the poor do.

Additionally, 86 percent of the wealthy love to read with an impressive 88 percent claiming that they read for self-improvement for 30 minutes or more per day.

7) Prepare to-do Lists the Night Before.

Successful people are known for writing their to-do-lists the night before so that they are able to set priorities for the following day. They number their lists as well to identify which tasks are the most important.

8) Put Goals and Make Them a Vision.

Joel Brown has interviewed a number of highly successful people for Entrepreneur and found:

"95% of successful people I interviewed regularly write their goals, their plans, or their vision of success."

Successful people are doing this as their first job the night before or in the morning in order to overcome their difficulties.

9) Manage your money.

Successful people came to where they are today because they can manage their financial situation successfully. This means they invest smartly with their money, they seek new opportunities, and they have the reserves they reserve for an emergency.

"There is an old saying that luck and preparation always meet opportunity. The most successful people set themselves up for success by preparing all the time. Successful people expect luck will find them, and it usually does."
