20 Good Habits to Have (Part 1)
Felicia White here of “BnFlea”…. I just read a couple great articles on how to be successful by Paul C. Brunson and wanted to share “20 Good Habits to Have (Part 1)” because I believe you’ll find some huge value in them.
“First we form habits, then they form us.” ~Jim Rohn
1.) Invest in Yourself
Whether it be purchasing a new self improvement book, or an audio at least once a month, investing time and money in learning social media, marketing skills if you’re in sales, investing in a gym membership if you’re trying to lose weight or get fit and healthy, learning a new language, taking parenting classes or just whatever…it’s crucial to invest in yourself so that you can truly grow and live your full potential.
*You can ALWAYS find time to listen to audio btw…some say they don’t have time to read, but you can always listen to a book on audio while you’re driving in the car, doing housework, taking a shower, cooking, working out, etc. so no excuses!
2.) Surround Yourself with Successful People
Who you are around DOES matter. As Jim Rohn always said “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.” You and your friends tend to shop at the same places, eat the same things, have the same spending habits, think the same, etc. so doesn’t it make sense to spend time with those who have what you want and are doing the things you want to do? People who are more successful than you so that you can learn from them and mastermind together to have the lives you deserve? We believe so!

3.) Have a Winning Mindset
The average person finds things to complain about or over complicates things when the successful person looks at things from a solution mindset or winning mindset. How CAN I vs. I can’t attitude. They take initiative and look for solutions to do anything they set their mind to.
4.) Dine with Winners
This is something new we hadn’t heard, but after reading the above mentioned article by Paul C. Brunson, it totally makes sense and we’ve experienced it first hand. This goes along with #2 in the sense that you should surround yourself with people more successful so that you can mastermind with them and what better place to learn and listen than when you’re eating with winners. We love listening in on how others interact with each other discussing what’s working and what’s not in their businesses. This is an important tip of the 20 Good Habits to Have if you want to be successful in any area of life.

5.) Personal Accountability
If you’ve experienced any type of failure, it’s so important to take personal responsibility for it. Don’t blame others….whether it’s the company you’re involved with, your sponsor, team, upline, partner, technology, your spouse, your kids, your dog, anyone or anything. Own it and fix it. Period. If you want to win, you have to learn from your mistakes and keep it moving. Apply that CAN do attitude once more! Another important good habit for sure! Do whatever you have to do, for as long as it takes…until. Period. You know the saying, “If success is to be, it’s up to ME!” So, make it happen, Captin’

6.) Leverage, Leverage, Leverage
Successful people do their best and get others to do the rest. Of course, you’re always working on learning new skills and ways to improve or grow, but while you’re learning….outsource the things you don’t know yet. Or even still, the things you’re not good at or don’t resonate with you. We have all strengths and weaknesses. We all have things we like and things we don’t like.
If you’re not passionate about a certain task in your business (maybe SEO, or copy-writing) or in your life (gardening or housework), then leverage others skills or talents in doing that particular thing. We leverage our team leader hangouts to get others to take action in our business. We leverage our company system and auto-responders to communicate with our team or prospects and do the up selling for us. We leverage Fiverr to complete certain tasks we don’t want to or are not particularly good at. This is what smart, successful people do and is another one of top 20 Good Habits to Have.

7.) Keep Your Eye on the Prize
There’s been many occasions where B and I are out playing, on a fun vacation, at a company event, or just doing whatever, but we’re consistently thinking of our business no matter what. Discussing ideas, strategies, plans, etc. You never really stop thinking of how you attract others to what you’re doing in order to help them. If you’re out enjoying life…..shoot a lifestyle video. If you’re at a company event….shoot a video sharing a marketing tip, upload it to YouTube and share it with the world on Facebook. If you’re at the pool with your family, take pictures and share them on Instagram. If you’re reading a good book, and something jumps out at you, share it on Twitter. People love learning about you and your vision. They may just want to be a part of your movement. The point is, that you never stop thinking about your passion. Keep your eye on the prize always.
Below is one of the lifestyle pics of me hanging at the pool where we live here at the lake.
8.) Be Willing to Take Risks
In the book, “Think and Grow Rich”, Napoleon Hill talks about when Andrew Carnegie first approached him about dedicating his life to writing about successful people with no compensation and the fact that Andrew had given him a specific amount of time to answer. If Napoleon had hesitated for too long, he would have withdrawn his offer to learn from some of the most talented, smartest, successful people hence his books, lectures, and the changing of so many lives wouldn’t have happened.
Smart, successful people make decisions quickly and change their minds slowly. Henry Ford is another example of someone who did this. There are many, many examples of those who dared to take big risks and yet they reaped big rewards in doing so.
I remember when Brian (B) and I (Flea), first decided we wanted to break free and start our own home based business…we took my unemployment check, even though we needed it for food and just did it. Along the way, we have sold furniture and jewelry in order to re-invest in our business, but we are so happy we did because it brought personal growth and freedom. This can happen for you too, once you make a decision to take the risk and go for it.
Have the good habit of taking risks on things that can catapult you to the next level. Even if you fail, you can use them as stepping stones to bigger and better things and most importantly, YOU becoming better and better in the process.

9.) Focus on Helping Others
When you focus on helping others and having a vision bigger than yourself, this creates experiences and memories that are priceless. The money seems less important, although it does follow naturally. When you show up, the money shows up. However, you care less about material possessions and more about creating a legacy you can be proud of. Helping others will bring just that to fruition.
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”~Winston Churchill
10.) Plug Into a Community
Successful people never go at it on their own. They are part of a mastermind, a community, a support system. You have to plug into a community in order to learn the necessary skills for business. Workout partners are needed for fitness goals. Songwriters, artists, and bands all need like minded members to make their dreams work. Whatever your passion and purpose; you need others to lift you up, teach you, and empower you.
If you’re in a home based business…plug into your company’s calls, get on your company’s Google+ hangouts, plug into all trainings and resources, get to events where you can surround yourself with the synergy that goes on there. Learn and grow together. You know what they say and it’s true…”Team work makes the dream work!”
“If I have seen farther than others, it is because I was standing on the shoulder of giants.” ~Sir Issac Newton
