What I Have Learned From Reading Over 250 Books

Self-help and positive psychology have many things all in common that I have seen and that is as follows:

  • Every successful and most sane practice a form of meditations
  • Everyone exercises regularly, tones of water, most of whom do hard physical work-outs
  • They all follow strict diets
  • They all get adequate and reasonable amount of sleep

Now, for the good stuff:

  • They all have mentors, most more than just one. They do rely on professionals as much or more than anyone else.
  • They all keep a journal of some sort
  • They all have goals. When you have a goal, you have something to work towards. Most successful people write not only short-term and long-term goals, but also daily goals.
  • They all follow strict routines filled with healthy habits
  • Thinking outside the box is normal for them
  • Not only do they visualize and feel the feelings associated with success, but most importantly they work their asses off to complete these goals.
  • They spend thousands of countless hours involved with their craft, most of whom will spend most of their day being productive towards their goals.
  • When they first start out they work 16-24-hour days making little to no money for months or even years before they make a dime. I can’t stress this one enough, most people are good at goal making and visualizing what they want in life, but most will never put the work in.
  • They approach every situation with an open-mind
  • They’re not scared to say, “I don’t know.”
  • Most are great teachers
  • They are not afraid to admit when they are wrong
  • All successful people read books, and some write
  • They all keep active imaginations and know how to think like a kid. Your imagination is the foundation to your reality.
  • Their ideas are ahead of their time
  • They don’t follow trends, they show people what they want and not where the trend is headed
  • They make free-time for themselves for leisure activities
  • They don’t care so much about feelings and they chose their friends wisely
  • They understand the concept of how you become like the 5 people you hang-out with most
  • They have mastered the power of positive thinking
  • They understand sociology and how people think and behave
  • Most aren’t satisfied with the norm and are constantly innovating new ideas
  • They spend countless hours thinking critically about every situation
  • The have mastered time management
  • They are not afraid to admit when they are wrong, and they learn from their mistakes. Most of whom will not make the same mistake twice. Instead, they will formulate a new approach to solve whatever problem(s) that may arise.
  • Most importantly they use their brain like any other muscle, it gets regular daily exercise
