These are the powerful sleek successful people among us we see in the media, or they could be a movie star, our boss or a successful entrepreneur. They have dared to step across the dividing line, and become powerful individuals. Their life, bank account, and how they carry themselves proves it.
What’s found is that these powerful people, aren’t like the masses when it comes to their habits. They’re accustomed, to doing things a little differently.
It takes determination to step beyond ones comfort level, and achieve. Most individuals are reactive in nature, while those who are powerful are usually proactive.
The majority of us are content, comfortable with just avoiding problems which confronts us.
So as a result, we’ll carry on with our lives and seldom feel a sense of achievement, that these powerful people crave.
What then happens, is we’ll barely get through life. We grow old, and retire broke.
We face difficult life situations growing older, and overcoming them is one of the keys and a life lesson on why we need to change. There are a collection of mindsets, that these successful people comply to.
1. – They Wake Up Early
Those who exceed in life, are all early risers. Getting up early is the theme for all those who are powerful, so they could get a head start on the day before others.
What they’re doing, is demonstrating their power by turning their dreams into reality, by accomplishing their daily intent. They have determined willpower, as they accomplish their tasks early.
Getting up early, offers a host of benefits. Some will use it as a time to exercise, meditate, and to get their “stuff” together, before the hectic workday begins.
Waking up early, also doesn’t mean they’re depriving themselves of sleep. To wake early, they’ll just get to bed earlier, thus getting their required nightly sleep, as they consider their health a priority.
2. – They Constantly “Ask” For What They Want
No one’s going to give you anything, if you don’t ask for it. People can’t read minds. So if you don’t ask for what you want, you’ll never get it. Those who are successful, will persistently ask without fail, every time.
The successful among us, learns this fact of life early. To be proactive, to ask for what they want, and then strive get it. Most have no idea or gives a damn what you want, as all they care about is themselves, first.
Once you know what you want, dismiss your ego and your pride, and just ask for it. Become bold and be direct, while making your request specific.
Be persistent, expect others to say “no” on occasion, and don’t be afraid to ask again. Be reasonable but not greedy.
The reason why most fail in life, is they’ll asked for something just once, and if it wasn’t given to them, they’ll never ask again. They become scared, as they have the fear of rejection.
3. – They’re Bold Enough To Say “No”
Saying “no” when it’s warranted, is a power move. It doesn’t matter how you say it, or what you happen to say no to, or the reason why. Just that you’re able to say no, gives you authority.
One of the greatest tactics you have when negotiating, is the word “no.” It’s short, sweet, and to the point. No, can dictate and make sweeping radical changes in your personal and professional life.
Saying no protects you from the extraneous and the obnoxious, fend off negative people, or from activities which wastes time. Your productivity will improve.
So never be afraid to say no to anyone. Once you begin saying no to the things you don’t like or want, things that are unkind, hurtful, or discouraging, doing so will give you power.
4. – They Read More Instead Of Watch
The most wealthy of individuals, aren’t glued to their TV, Facebook, or are wasting their time aimlessly on the Internet for entertainment. Successful people, watch less than one hour of TV per day.
What they do instead, is focus and improve on the things which makes their lives and business prosper. The fastest way of doing so it’s found, is by reading, so that’s their preferred pastime.
What powerful people also love to do, is learn by reading or watching instructional videos in their spare time, for instance.
They will constantly read books, or research concise information online, this instead of watching the latest drama or romance.
5. – They Don’t Care What Anyone Else Thinks
Once taking a character scan, of what the traits of the most powerful successful people in the world do, you’ll find they come from different backgrounds, ethnicity’s, education, and religions.
They’ve all arrived, from different persuasions and passions.
One thing they all have in common, is they don’t care what others think of them. This isn’t saying that they’re narcissistic, cold, or rude.
They care about people, but won’t attempt to please their every whim, react to what they want, this regardless of what it is.
They live a life which displays empathy, they genuinely care about the welfare of others, but ultimately, they know that no one owes them anything. They paddle their own life raft.
No One Said It Was Easy
What’s vital, is you have the support of your friends and family, that they’re not constantly trying to stab you in the back. That you live a life of prosperity and not scarcity.
What’s also important, is why you shouldn’t cater to the expectations or the cultural morals of others. You’ll fail, if you try to please everyone.
Instead, just do what you do, the best you can. Allow things to fall into place. Let the critics whine, and the pundits pontificate.
Who cares what anyone thinks, just do your own thing and you will be on the path to become successful.
