The 9 things that successful people do differently (part one) !

In life there are those who succeed and those who do not. There are the homeless and the Bill Gates.
What separates them, plus a series of zeros in the bank account?

The most immediate of the answers is: success. The ability to transform an idea into reality, to create a project that has an impact on the world.

Well. Let's start off by dispelling a cliché immediately:  to be successful, you don't need to win the DNA lottery .

We usually refer to billionaire businessmen, internationally renowned artists or visionary leaders talking about  talent ,  skill  and  genius . It is true that these qualities exist and play an important role in life, but we tend to believe that they are innate characteristics, while they  can be cultivated through a series of actions .

Such as? A  study  shows us  what the behaviours that successful people have in common,  and which distinguish them from others. Here they are, in the form of advice that we can put into practice at all times.


When you set yourself a goal to reach,  try to be as specific as possible . I have to "lose weight by 5 kilos" is better than "I have to lose weight". "I want to save 200 euros a month to organise a trip" will be better than "I want to set aside some money to travel".

If you don't see a specific goal today, how will you know if you reached it tomorrow or not?  Once you have visualised it and given it a specific shape, feel the sensation that will give it to you. Nice, right? But there are obstacles in the middle that you will have to overcome.

It is this  contrast technique  that will guide you to success. Because visualising obstacles will lead you to apply yourself to overcome them. The more specific you are about the lens, the more precisely you will see the obstacles, the more you will be taken to act instead of daydreaming.


Every day we have countless opportunities to make progress towards our realisation. Unfortunately, however, we are often too distracted by daily commitments to be able to catch them.

 It is important to plan  when  and  where  of every important action, always having a plan b. The technique is called  if ,  then , and can help us increase our productivity by 300%.

It's simple:  if x happens, then I'll do y . It is a question of telling our brain that if a situation occurs, then I will perform a certain action.

If  I haven't written that important document before lunch,  then  writing it will be the first thing I'll do in the afternoon. If it 's 8 in the morning,  then  I'll take ten minutes to meditate. If I receive an email that will infuriate me, then I will   wait 10 minutes before answering.

This process helps us to send the brain automatically on certain actions,  freeing us of mental space for other thoughts , and at the same time helping us to  act without procrastinating .


If you want to stop acting at random, you have to have a goal, and if you want to reach it you have to understand if what you are doing is bringing you closer or less to it. Our motivation to advance depends on the  discrepancy  that our brain perceives  between where we have arrived and where we want to go in the future .

If this discrepancy is smoky, our motivation will suffer. Making a constant self-analysis of our actions can require a lot of willpower, and reveal to us bitter truths, for example that we are not advancing as we would like.

But  facing reality is the first step to improving it , and on the other hand, it is important to recognise every little success achieved, to motivate us to continue on the right path.


When you set yourself a goal to reach, let yourself be pervaded by positive thinking. Believing in your ability to succeed will be of fundamental importance for self-sustaining during the process.

 But be careful not to underestimate the difficulties that will arise before you. Viewing yourself at the top of the mountain won't get you up there . Getting there will require planning, strategy, training and perseverance.

Positive thinking can make us feel like Superman can do anything. But let's never forget that he too had to deal with kryptonite, and that he had a lot of trouble keeping his identity a secret.

Here is a practical advice: even more than visualising success, it is important to  visualise the steps that will lead us to achieve it . At the same time cultivate your optimism and your realism, without letting either of you take over the other.

In the next article we will discover the next 5 habits at the base of success.

At the next wave.

thanks for the time  .
