7 Habits That Lead to Massive Success
People who have a growth mindset are highly teachable. They are quick to develop good habits which power their journey to success.
- They’re willing to learn what they don’t know.
- They believe in their natural ability or talent in an area, but also understand that it needs to be cultivated.
- They realize that they can always improve upon what they already know.
- They’re not afraid to try and fail because they understand it’s a common part of learning and achieving.
If you develop a growth mindset, you’ll be willing to put whatever effort is needed to achieve success. You’ll be ready to take action that will propel you toward your goals and your dreams.
What Blocks You From A Growth Mindset?
A success mindset can be harder for those who struggle with self-esteem.
- Maybe someone told you that you couldn’t do something that you wanted to do… and you believed it.
- Maybe you lack a strong support system in your life.
- Or maybe you’re the enemy of your own success – and tell yourself you can only accomplish so much, and shy away from bigger goals or dreams.
Or you might have the right self talk, the positive mindset, but fear paralyzes you into procrastinating on the actual action of making beneficial life changes.
Whatever the reason, you have to discover how to focus and plan for your successful outcome.
You’ll see evidence of your consistent accomplishments and it will reinforce your belief in yourself.
To get what you want, whether it’s in your personal or professional life, you have to learn to do what works. For most people, this means creating a habit.
But a habit isn’t something that never changes.
A success habit is always evolving.
Here are 7 success habits you’ll want to acquire as early as possible.

Habit #1 – Check if what you want is really what you want.
Don’t do something just because you should. Check in with yourself every 30 days to make sure that the path you’re on is the one you want to stay on.
Doing this prevents you from ending up with a model that doesn’t satisfy you.
At the same time, make sure you’re not abandoning something out of fear of failure.
There’s a big difference between doing what’s right for you and doing something that feels easier.
Habit #2 – Start each day with motivation.
These are some habits that work like clockwork to get you to take the next step.
For example, if you need to go for a run to clear your head and get some time to think, then build that into a new habit.
If you need to use a set of rituals every morning in order to get into the flow, then turn that sequence into a new habit to help you to get going.
Starting off with motivational reminders is like eating breakfast in the morning – it helps fuel you throughout your day.
Habit #3 – Don’t ever stop dreaming.
Your success begins with an idea, a hope – a dream. If you go all out all the time, but lose sight of that dream because you’re keeping your nose to the grindstone, you can burn out quickly.
All you can see is the end result rather than the journey.
Remember that on your way to getting what you define as success, you will never get these days back again. So enjoy the process as well as where it takes you.
Sometimes it becomes a chore to just blast through a task list – especially if you forget about why you’re doing everything. Make sure you periodically revisit those plans to keep you inspired with your actions.
Habit #4 – Make some room to grow.
Your success mindset should keep you learning even when you feel you’ve made it.
There’s always something new that you can learn.
Habit #5 – Answer to someone else.
You want to have someone in your life that you’re accountable to.
Make time to meet with a mentor or guide who can help keep you on track to achieve your success. He or she should tell you when you’re driving yourself too hard and steer you around pitfalls.
Sometimes you won’t have a specific person in your life capable of doing that. You can turn to a paid life coach or even join a forum of like-minded, positive individuals who are all striving for their own success.
Habit #6 – Trust in yourself.
When you go after your dreams, there will always be someone waiting to tell you that it isn’t a good idea!
You’ll feel it as knots in the pit of your stomach or a sense of unease when you hear this from one person after another. It’s only when you begin trusting yourself in these situations that you can ignore the well-meaning but ignorant warnings and carry on.
Your self-confidence helps you develop a sense of direction and strength.
Habit #7 – Roadblocks happen. Be prepared.
You have to determine ahead of time that you won’t give up. That you won’t surrender a growth mindset to a fixed one, no matter what happens.
Roadblocks can often become character builders.
They can strengthen your resolve and help you learn to become more resourceful as you find another way to do what you want to get done. If you become too comfortable with your efforts, you often don’t achieve the ultimate success that you’re after.
Having a strong mindset in life, whether for your personal or professional satisfaction, requires a combination of positive thoughts and verifiable action steps.
Whenever you do something that you start to feel a bit of shame over (like quitting on a project), ask yourself if you’re doing it because you don’t believe enough in yourself to succeed.
If that ends up being the case, take the task and break it up into micro-sized mini goals that you can work on to see if you’re capable of making progress that way.
It’s also a good idea to surround yourself with action-taking, positive people. Take inventory of the kinds of people you’re currently surrounded with.
- Do they always complain about everything?
- Do you find yourself commiserating with them?
- Do they leach away your mental energy and determination?
If so, get away from them. You don’t want to be swallowed up by the pity party they’re throwing for themselves.
Seek out motivational experts whose thoughts align with what you find inspiring. Tune in to their messages or read their books daily as if you’re taking a vitamin designed to prevent illness.
Over time, you’re going to become someone who others look to for support. They’ll be attracted to the positivity you project. Make sure you can turn their mind around, rather than letting their limited thoughts infect you.
Make it a habit to keep on building new habits that will guide you – and others seeking your help – to massive success.
