Three Habits of Successful Businesspeople


Are you dreaming of going into a business or are you already in one but going nowhere? Are you wondering why some individuals seem to always succeed as if success was in their bones? Know that there is no guess game in what these successful people do. They “seem” to make the right decisions in their businesses not because of luck but because of certain success-breeding habits that you also can emulate. I will touch on three here:


1. Setting goals
”If you don’t know where you want to go, any road will take you there.” – The Cheshire Cat in ‘Alice In Wonderland’. This quotation touches on the importance of setting goals for your business.

Why is goal-setting critical to creating successful situations? Because by doing this you have charted a clear road of the heights you want to reach and how you would reach them. Short, you have selected the paths that will take you straight there!

2. Practicing positive association
What this comes up to is the ‘principle of success’ called “The Power of Positive Association.” What it basically says is that you hold yourself back or propel yourself forward by the people you spend most of your time with. Why? Simply because the values, ideas and directions of the people around you influence yours.

Success breeds success. This is why successful people associate with their kind. This way they patronize each other, share contacts, and generally elevate the prospects of the group. No doubt the saying goes that: “It is difficult to soar like an eagle if you hang out with the buzzards and chickens all the time.”

3. Managing Your Time
”Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.” – Carl Sandburg, Great American Author.

The above quotation shows how imperative it is to stick to a consistent schedule, a sine qua non condition to success. Therefore dedicate specific hours to productive activities and you’ll gain an advantage in the business world.

Observation of successful individuals has shown that, in addition to others, they always exhibit these success-breeding habits that invariably propel them toward their end goals. So, if you want to see a positive change in your professional career, take note of these habits, implement them religiously, and you'll find yourself on an upward path to becoming a successful businessperson.
