"The 10 Habits of Highly Effective People"

1. They Take Action:

It is important to organize, plan, & set priorities, but without action, a plan is nothing more than potential.

Successful people act – quickly and often. In addition, although it may sound counterintuitive, they act (start, anyway) before they feel ready.
2. They don’t wait for anyone else to motivate them:

True motivated is self-motivation.

Although a little encouragement from others can help, it really is all down to the individual.

Motivated people find success without looking to others for encouragement or push.

1. Procrastinating

Procrastination is the thief of time, collar him.

You can also set a timer on your phone for 15 minutes and commit to doing your task until it goes off, usually just starting will give you momentum and you’ll be likely to continue for longer.
2. Comparison

Comparison can truly ruin your life. Even when you experience positive things, the victories will be hollow.

There will always be other people with “better” circumstances than you.

Remind yourself that we are all human. No one is perfect.
