What do successful people do differently to be successful?
These are questions many of us ask ourselves.
Actually, it’s a question which had been asked already nearly 100 years ago.
A guy named Napoleon Hill tried to find answers to these questions and interviewed in 1922, 500 millionaires for over a period of 20 years.
His mission was to find out what made these millionaires successful in their lives.
The answers he found out were very valuable and timeless.
He found similarities between all these successful self-made millionaires.
Therefore he decided to package his findings into his book Think and grow rich and to share it with the world.
This book is down to the present day one of the books several renowned personal development trainers refer to as being life-changing.
No question, I had to read this book, too.
And yes I definitely agree and say if you start implementing the habits from this book into your daily life, you will most likely change your life for the better.
In this post “5 habits of highly successful people”, I give a quick insight into his findings.

5 HABITS OF HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE
MAKE FAST DECISIONS
Napoleon Hill found out that one common thing between all successful millionaires was, that they make fast decisions.
This doesn’t mean that they are deciding just out of the blue without assessment.
This means that they just don’t tend to overcomplicate things.
Once they find out what they want and know how they can get it, they are on fire and go for it.
KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
Another key factor is that they know exactly what they want.
They are going for their dreams with a burning desire and kind of an obsession.
Their purpose drives them towards their dreams and goals restlessly.
Nothing can stop their desire to go for their dreams, even if no one else believes in it, except themselves.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
They believe in themselves and in their purpose no matter what others might say.
They use the power of autosuggestion to keep themselves on track towards success.
DON´T GIVE UP
Giving up is not an option in their world.
They know that successes are accompanied by failures.
That failures are inevitable and part of the game.
They take their failures as lessons to learn from them, stand up and keep moving towards their dreams anyway until they realize it.
HAVE A SUCCESS MINDSET
Their state of mind is not characterized by hope and wish, but by a deep sense of knowing that if they want it they can make it happen.
No matter how many times they fail before they achieve their goal.
