Beyonce has the same 24 hours in a day as you". When you sit down for just 300 seconds (5 minutes) and think about that you start to wonder, what more can you do to be as productive as Beyonce.
I always see posts on social media that say, "Beyonce has the same 24 hours in a day as you". When you sit down for just 300 seconds (5 minutes) and think about that you start to wonder, what more can you do to be as productive as Beyonce.
I am no beyhive fanatic, but we really do have the SAME 24 hours in a day. We have the same 24 hours as Oprah, Bill Gates, Will Smith, Presidents of Companies, Medical Students, Lawyers, Astronauts, War Heroes. I digress. Some of you reading this may say, "well I have to work from 9 am to 5 pm therefore I have less time". True! However, that is a lame excuse.
24 hours - 8 hours = 16 hours. Lets subtract 7 hours for sleeping. That still leaves you with 9 WHOLE HOURS. What are you doing with those hours?
Think about it...
Many of you are probably scrolling through Instagram for 3 of those hours and even then I am not sure how the remaining hours get wasted.
It is never too late to make a change if you no longer want to waste away hours and want to get productive. Here are the 6 habits of successful people:
1) They read EVERY SINGLE DAY
Read books you have always wanted to. Read books that teach you a new language or new skill. Read books that are fantasies or read books full of wisdom like the Bible. Reading enhances your mind more than scrolling through social media platforms
2) They Make Health a Priority
I am notorious for skipping meals. My excuses? I rather work through a meal or simple absent mindedness. Call me crazy, but yes I FORGET meals. I rather snack, but excuses aside I am a work in progress y'all. Successful people make sure they nourish their bodies. They also go to annual doctor and dentist check-ups. They get PHYSICAL. You will often hear successful people mention 6 am gym workouts or 5 am runs. Lastly, they are unafraid to see therapists as needed. Your brain is the powerhouse for your body. If you cannot get right mentally, you cant get right period.
3) THEY LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES
Do not let fear be your chauffeur through life. Successful people search for opportunities everywhere!
4) They ALWAYS Remember Their Why
When people ask you what are you working for? That is something successful people never forget. Peoples visions may change and their paths to achieving their dreams may change but successful people do not forget why they do whatever it is they do. If you do not know your "why" yet, that is okay. Work on finding it. Navigating through life without a why is aimless navigation. It is like driving through the middle of no where with no clear destination.
5) They Upgrade Their Mindset
Anyone who thinks they know everything, knows nothing at all. In fact, if you have anyone in your life who thinks they know it all its best to steer clear of this person. Successful people are open minded and they are always willing to upgrade their thinking.
6) They Work Efficiently
My best friends boyfriend said to me one day, "I am trying to work smarter not harder". I looked at him pondering and ever since that statement stuck with me. This is called efficiency! Successful people work smarter! They are efficient when completing tasks. They search for ways to optimize their life. They optimize their time as well. Maybe that is how Beyonce is able to be Beyonce...efficiency!
If you already have adopted these habits you are well on your way.
