50 Tips and Habits to Become Successful and Achieve What You Want in Life

1) It’s a journey, not a destination

 Don’t try to be perfect, just live your best!

2) Get up early 

This will allow you more time for yourself before going to work or doing household chores.  

3) Treat others as you would like them to treat you 

Always make sure that everything that comes out of your mouth is nice and kind. Give compliments.

4) Stay positive

Be open about your feelings but don’t let negativity bring down your spirit. We all have our bad days but we learn from them how to live a more pleasant life.  

5) Write down what you want

 Make goals and keep at it! Just remember that your goals should be realistic. 

6) Show gratitude

Always appreciate the little things in your life. It’s a way of learning to enjoy all of the small moments that make up a lifetime.

7) Be yourself

Don’t try so hard to impress others, just have fun being who you are! Enjoy being different from other people because it makes you special.

8 ) Never stop learning 

Learn new skills regularly. We may not know everything but we can always learn something new each day so why not put our knowledge into practice?

9) Be helpful to those around you 

Always make time for the people you love. Be a good friend, lover or family member. No one is an island so let’s all look out for each other!

10) Prioritize

Make sure that you are doing what you want to do and not just what others want of us. Personal happiness is key to success in life.

11) Enjoy yourself

Life should be fun! It isn’t perfect but it sure can be enjoyable if we choose for it to be so! Work hard, play harder!

12) Always believe in yourself

Your thoughts are your reality, make sure that you are thinking positively and it will help to manifest your dreams. 

13 ) Be Resilient

It’s very important not to give up after the first failure or even just some bad day because that is what we all experience from time to time. You can’t always expect to meet no difficulties at work, in studying or in life.

14) Life is a choice

You have the power to take life into your own hands, no matter how much responsibility others lay on us so why not give back? Life isn’t always about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain!

15) Follow your heart

No one can tell what’s best for us except ourselves so let’s not take advice from anyone about anything! Let’s make our own decisions and learn from them!

16) Be a leader, not a follower

Stand up for what you believe in, others may follow but it’s better to lead the way. Don’t be afraid of what will happen if we don’t do certain things. We might miss out on an amazing opportunity or life lesson but ultimately, we are truly happy with ourselves.         

17) Whatever doesn’t kill us makes us stronger

We move forward every day even if some days feel like they’re breaking us down. It is okay to break down, cry, scream, mourn, laugh, and love because that’s just part of who we are as people. Be true to yourself at all costs! If someone or something doesn’t make you happy, let it go because life is too short to fight for a relationship or job that isn’t right for you.      

18) Take risks

We can live amazing lives if we’re up for the challenge. Let’s not be afraid to get out of our comfort zone and see how far we can get!            

19) Don’t take anything personally 

Never assume that things people say to us are about us, but always remember what they convey. Especially in an argument.               

20) Let things go

We are only human, it’s okay to be wrong sometimes. Just apologize and move on! We’ll all learn from doing so, especially our kids.

21) Expect the worst

This way, you will never have any major disappointments because you’ll already be prepared for them to happen.            

22) Love makes the world go round 

There is nothing better than the feeling of love in your heart. We may not know what true happiness feels like until we truly fall in love with someone who loves us back just as much!

23) Be grateful even in the worst of times 

It’s so easy to get stuck in our own lives and problems but if we just look around for a moment, things may not be as bad as they seem. We still have each other, let’s share that love with one another.            

24) Take care of your body 

 Eat well, exercise and be happy. Be good to your body and you’ll see the results within!  

25) If life gives you lemons, make lemonade! 

Get up every day ready to take on anything thrown at you. If it’s storming outside, it might be time to bring out an umbrella.     

 26) Don’t let anyone take up all our time 

You have to learn to say no and stick to it! Let the people who matter know that you’re sorry but you can’t sacrifice your sanity for anybody.       

27) Patience is a virtue 

Sometimes we just want everything now, but if we took a breath and waited, things would be so much better!     

28) Live in the present

We don’t want to live with any regrets so why do today what we’ll regret not doing? Do as much as you can right now because once it’s gone, it’s gone forever!

 29) Stop saying I wish

Instead of wishing for something to happen, make your dreams happen!

 30) Learn to say NO.

Just say no to drugs, to time wasters, to negative people, but most of all to yourself. You are not meant to go through life weighed down by anything because you’re stronger than that.       

31) Be your best friend

We don’t need anybody else if we can be our own best friends.  

32) Treat everyone equally 

Don’t hold grudges or judge someone based on what others have said about them. Just because someone has different views than you doesn’t mean they’re wrong…unless they hurt somebody, in which case it’s never okay.  Try your best not to judge people.

33) Don’t give up

It may get tough but you have to keep going. You can’t be afraid of failure. Mistakes are lessons, they’re what make us grow.       

34) Just do your best

You don’t have to be perfect! Nobody is, not even your idols. Don’t let someone else’s idea of perfection scare you from being who you are.

35) When life gives you lemons, throw them back and demand chocolate 

If everything isn’t going perfectly, take a step back and enjoy the things that matter most. Laugh a little bit more, play a little bit longer, it’ll help in the long run!

 36) Always forgive

Even they don’t ask for it because some things just aren’t worth holding on to.    

 37) Look at life through a child’s eyes

If we looked at everything as if we were seeing it for the first time, we’d see that everything is magical and we don’t need more than that.

38) Swallow your pride

It’ll make it easier in the long run! Think before you speak, especially if something important is on the line.

39) Ignore mean people

Don’t let them bring you down and don’t take things they say to heart. Most of the time, it’s because they’re jealous in some way.   

40) Stop worrying so much

It doesn’t help anyone and we all know you’ll still be worrying but at least try not to. 

41) Let go of everything that’s holding you back

It’s okay if some things are too painful. It might be hard but just start fresh. Some call it moving on, some call it growing up, whatever name it goes by; just do your best.

42) Don’t complain

Complaining is for those who can’t change anything themselves. Even if the situation looks grim, you have to realize that complaining isn’t going to help anything.

43) Stop trying to change others         

You cannot control other people! All you can do is give advice and if they decide not to take it, respect their decision. You’re only human after all!

44) Do something every day that makes you happy 

It doesn’t matter how small; it’ll make a big difference in the future!

45) Make memories

Make as many memories as possible because once it’s gone, it’s gone forever.

46) Don’t forget the little things

They’re what make life so special and those little moments can mean everything.

47) Analyze yourself

It’s not always about being smart or studying a lot, but sometimes success comes from recognizing your own strengths and weaknesses and then working on the latter one as much as possible so the gap between both gets smaller and smaller.

48) Try new things!

 Our world is full of opportunities, especially if we open our eyes to them (which isn’t always an easy thing to do) and take the time to look around. Even simple things like meeting up with friends can attract opportunities because by talking about what is going on in each other’s lives, friends who haven’t seen each other for years or even decades sometimes, help us discover what dreams can become true (if we only give it a chance). 

49) Not everyone has to like us 

Even though it might sound easier, sometimes we might want everybody in our surroundings to like us but the truth is that this isn’t normal and it simply doesn’t work this way so no matter how much we try, there will always be somebody who doesn’t appreciate what we do.

50) Trust God

If you want to have a successful life, you should trust God. He will guide your way and always comfort you in times of trouble. The following bible verse says it all: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

 In order to achieve success in life, it is imperative to remain active and never give up when faced with challenges. One should also always appreciate their loved ones since they can vanish without warning. Finally, by being mindful of what truly matters in one’s own life, the journey through a living will undoubtedly be a fruitful one.
