Things Successful People Do Differently
Sometimes we achieve success because of the small things that we do every day. 
Here are the small things that matter most to successful people.
If you ask yourself what makes one person succeed while another one fails and they are in the same business, you will know that the answer to this lies in the small things that seem mundane and ordinary, yet are vital when it comes to achieving a long-term and consistent success.
Successful people:
Are constant readers - We are not talking about reading everything; we are talking about reading information that will improve your knowledge in your area of expertise. 
Ensure that you internalize what you have learned so as to retain the information on a long term basis. 
This will help broaden your thinking.
Know their purpose - Working on your true purpose gives you the motivation to wake up every day with enthusiasm and determination because you are longer working, but following your passion. 
Find your passion, and you will be halfway to achieving success.
You cannot trust your knowledge all time; you need the help of others to make it in life.
Never shy from asking for help - They say if you want to go fast, go alone but if you want to go far, go with others. 
That’s why it is important to ask for help from your predecessors. 
You cannot trust your knowledge all time; you need the help of others to make it in life.
Have links - It is hard to ask for help if you donít have friends and people you can link up with. 
Therefore, build a vast network of associates and friends, both in and out of your industry so as to have a wider friendsí base that you can consult on various matters.
Ask questions for clarification - Question the thing you don’t comprehend so as to gain clarity. 
Question why you need to adopt new methods or techniques. 
Just because everyone is doing something in a certain way doesnít mean there isnít a better way.
Outsource - You cannot achieve success by micromanaging each and every thing in your business. 
Whether you will hire people locally or from the other side of the world, you need to get others to perform tasks that are overly tedious and those that you are not good at. Otherwise, you will only achieve mediocre results if you opt to do everything by yourself.
Are Flexible - Things keep on changing and so should we. 
Learn to embrace change. 
Water can get past anything just because it is so flexible and that’s how successful people are too. 
Don’t be resistant to technology or change. You need to move with the times.
Prioritize - Most people tend to do things in order of ease or time. 
For instance, you can start by handling 30 minute tasks rather than a two hour tasks or execute the easy tasks first before the difficult ones. However, once you prioritize, you will do the most important things first; it doesnít matter whether it is the hardest of all the tasks. Success has a natural path, and you need to follow that.
Plan - You need to have a plan so as to be able to achieve your vision and goals. The plan needs to be written down to act as a guide.
Are Persistent - You cannot achieve success overnight or in a week. 
You need to stick to your lane and do everything necessary to achieve success. You will encounter failure, but that should not discourage you.
As long as you don’t quit, you cannot be termed as a failure. Even blind squirrels find acorns because of being persistent.
See failures as a stepping stone to success - this point is tied to the one above. Failure shouldnít give you a reason to quit. 
Yeah, it can discourage you, but it shouldnít be a reason for you to quit. 
Give yourself time for pity and analyze why you failed. After this, draft a way forward and move on.
Remember that even Edison failed 999 times before successfully inventing the light bulb. 
In his interview, he said that he never saw them as 999 failures, but rather as 999 ways that a bulb cannot light. Your failures take you a step closer to your goal.
Arenít selfish - Whether it is sharing your techniques for success or sharing credit, it is good to share with others. 
By sharing, you will be rewarded ten times as much in the future.
Step out of their comfort zone - you might be nervous about taking your business to the next level because you have never been there before, but you need to gather confidence and stretch your abilities.
There are only two options - you will either succeed or learn from your setbacks in your new adventure.
Recharge - Work without play made Jack a dull boy. Therefore, take time to rest by having a quality sleep and also break from your daily routine for one day a week to do something unrelated to what you do every day. 
This will help you recharge and get new motivation to do more work.

Alun's Been Thinking About Business ....
  • Your salary is the bribe they give you for giving up on your dreams.
  • I suspect that Elon Musk really is actually an alien sent to Earth to do some reconnaissance. Putting a red car into orbit is the code for “send the invasion fleet” now.
  • No matter how stupid you think your ideas are, remember, there’s a millionaire out there because he thought of pool noodles.
  • “Quit your job and follow your dreams” works only because 99% of people will do it “tomorrow-ish”.
  • If Elon Musk has put a copy of Star Trek in the glove box and labeled it a documentary, he will be the first person to troll aliens.
  • I’m going to start an online social network for people who don’t use the internet. It’s definitely an untapped market.
  • And I’m going to invent toothpaste that tastes like coffee so your first drink of real coffee afterwards doesn’t taste like … well, you know what!

Always delighted to hear from you!
