The basic entity of a role model is based on the fact that the successful people are successful because of some reason or the other. Be it a successful actor or a revolutionary politician, a brilliant orator or a multi-millionaire, all the people who have climbed the success ladder in a swift and not so swift manner, have inculcated something or the other in their lives that has helped them become what they are.  If we are able to accommodate these habits in our daily lives, no wonder our efficiency would be increased manifold in every sphere of life.

The top 10 good habits that successful people follow are:


1. Perseverance


When we aim towards our goals and our dreams, we are often faced with numerous obstacles. These deterrents are generally strong enough to dissuade us pursuing our dreams and becoming successful. However, the difference between unsuccessful and successful people in the world is that the successful people maintain perseverance within them and do not get distracted from the path of success. The quality of perseverance and having a headstrong approach towards one’s goals is one that the successful people follow. With this habit, the successful people have for ages, been able to maintain a steady success ratio.


2. Stress Management

Stress Management

Being successful comes with a lot of baggage. In order to be able to deal with the hectic schedule and loads of responsibilities, all the successful people employ some methods to channelise the stress into a manner that is more efficient and productive. This constructive approach has been the right hand of all the people who have made their presence felt in their respective fields, to say the least. Come to think of it, how would have Steve Jobs managed to make a dent in the universe had he been burdened under the debris of workload and corporate pressure? Stress management has been the key to success for all beings whatsoever.


3. Being Proactive


This is one habit that has made its way to the top most position in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. When a self-help book strongly advocates in the favour of a habit, it is not a thing to be overlooked. Being proactive is a stock feature of the successful people worldwide. Being able to take initiative and having the capacity to be on one’s toes all the time yet maintaining a steady balance is a habit that is innately good and has been serving the successful people all over the globe consistently. Being proactive also involves being accountable for one’s actions and deeds. If we recall Spiderman, with great power comes great responsibility. And we all know, with great fiction comes great message indeed.


4. Humility


The thing that most of us attach with successful people, based on our prejudices as well as common experience is arrogance. We tend to believe that all the rich and famous are filled with ego. However, when one interacts with them, one observes that they are very humble and down-to-earth. For instance, the great painter M.F. Hussain never wore shoes in his life. Some humbling aspects are always there in a successful person’s life. Being humble is to acknowledge and appreciate those below you as well as those above you equally, without any bias. And most importantly, not to boast of one’s achievements and having a strong belief as Paulo Coelho says, that man is nothing and when you fail to realise that, stand in front of a sea and see that you will be silenced immediately.


5. Maintaining Health

Maintaining Health

We all know how conscious actors are about their bodies. This obsession with bodies is not based on only the external form. It has at its base, an overall mechanism to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Maintaining health includes eating right, sleeping right and exercising right. A healthy mind is the abode of healthy thoughts and actions. As they say, health is wealth! The hectic work schedule of any successful person is bound to get affected if that person falls ill. They just cannot afford being sick. Thus, they always make it a point that they maintain good health in order to prosper.
