6 Habits to Help You Build a Better Business

by Anne Bachrach (USA)

The most successful businesses globally are run by high-performing entrepreneurs with habits that ensure high performance and maximum productivity in their work lives.

What propels their successes are the habits they have cultivated and disciplined themselves to stick to throughout their lives.

Your habits have an undeniable connection to your success in business. These habits have a connection with how you think, how you feel, how you respond to positive and negative emotions and occurrences.

As a high-performing professional or business owner, you need to cultivate the right habits to lead you on the path to greater success. The habits you cultivate should also position you as a leader in your business while encouraging others, your employees, and maybe even your competitors, to emulate you.

Though these habits are those of successful entrepreneurs, simply cultivating these habits and doing nothing to evolve and manage your business effectively will change your business.

You have to put in the work required to ensure that you achieve your goals. Consistent application of these habits will help you transform your lifestyle and build a better business that sets you on the path to enjoying your ideal business and ideal life.

Applying these 6 habits will help you build an even better business.

  1. Get Up Early

The saying ‘the early bird gets the worm’ comes right into perspective. Many successful entrepreneurs have a habit of waking up early. Early in this context means 4.00 a.m. to 5.00 a.m.

Waking up that early helps you get your mind in working order. When the rest of the world is asleep, this time slot helps you focus your mind and have a clear view of your day.

The challenge with waking up early is if you are not a ‘morning person’. To gain this habit, go to bed early and set the alarm to wake up at your desired time. You may hit the snooze button regularly when you start, but you will get up earlier most times. You want to strive for 7-8 hours of sleep every night, so adjust accordingly.

Do this until your body gets used to waking up at that time. Eventually, you willnot need to set the alarm because your internal clock will wake you up.

  1. Inspire Yourself

Motivation in business is everything. When you feel motivated, you feel inspired to challenge yourself and work twice as hard to achieve your goals.

Inspiration comes in different strokes for many people. You need to focus on what inspires you every day and transform that inspiration and motivation into fuel to push yourself forward.

If podcasts are your thing, go for it. If inspirational quotes or sayings help you get yourself in the right frame of mind, read daily inspirational quotes.  If looking at your vision board gets your juices flowing, look at it every day, and maybe even several times throughout the day.

When you inspire yourself, you can align your focus to the task that needs to be done. By doing this, you are building a powerful habit that ensures self-sufficiency and self-reliance.
