So, how can you continue to be inspired daily and stay motivated in achieving success? One important way is to establish good habits that will stay with you through the ups and downs of life.

The Habitual Mindset of Successful Entrepreneurs
Healthy habits can help keep you focused and catapult you to the next level. “I have made it a life’s habit to pray for courage, wisdom, and strength of heart and mind to see me through the mission,” describes SeneGence Founder and CEO Joni Rogers-Kante, in her book Million Dollar Lips: A Journey into the Hearts of Women in Business.
Learn From Others
In addition to the habit of prayer, Rogers-Kante has seen the importance of dedication and learning from others’ wisdom. While growing her successful business, she learned from some notable people, including Lee Iacocca, Chrysler’s former CEO, and Napoleon Hill, author of the bestselling book, Think and Grow Rich. Seeing the success and failures of other entrepreneurs allows you to know what you need to act on or what mistakes you can avoid.
Control Your Thoughts
In Hill’s book, he explains that “…we have the power to control our thoughts.” Whether it’s envisioning a brighter future or a not-so-great one, your thoughts are more powerful than you know. That’s why identifying the right habits and implementing them in your daily routine are essential to a successful career.
A Forbes article about healthy habits notes that you should also keep sight of why you originally started your business. By focusing on your purpose and goal-setting, devoting time to deep work, and having a team that holds you accountable, you’re able to complete the mission you set out on.
In an interview with Direct Selling News, Rogers-Kante explained that success takes patience and hard work, and “there’s no instant payoff.” And that’s the mentality you should take when building good habits. In most cases, it won’t be immediate — it will take time and dedication. However, if you stick with it, the opportunity for success is endless.
Now that you’re aware of what habits you can integrate into your daily life, it’s time to make the changes necessary to build the foundation for an amazing future. Be Proactive, as Stephen R. Covey explains in his book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
