5 Habits To Become A Successful Person (Secrets Revealed)

Successful people are not born with success. They learn habits that make them successful. I want to share five secrets with you that I’ve learned by studying the rich. I’ve actually used them personally and adopted them in my own life as well and I can see the success happening.

I have been studying a lot of successful people since the last two years, reading a lot of books, studying people like Warren Buffett, Jack Ma, Elon Musk and I realized that they all have something in common and that is ‘Habits’. It’s not just the habits, but the reason why they all have these habits and that’s what I call the secret behind these habits that make them so successful.

So, in this blog we’ll be discussing in detail about the five habits that can make you successful. It’s important to know the right way to go about things if you want to get ahead in life and if you follow these tips then you will surely become a successful person.

Habit 1: Set Goals

The first habit we will be talking about is ‘Setting Goals’. All successful people have this habit. Now, before I share the secret behind this habit, let me tell you the importance of setting goals. Setting goals gives you direction, so that you know where you’re going.

You might have heard this saying which goes as “If you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll end up in a place you don’t want to be in” so that’s one of the main reasons why successful people actually set goals. It took me a while to discover the secret behind setting these goals, but once I found out I started to adopt this habit myself.

You need to understand that it’s not just about setting goals, your goal can be anything but the secret is to announce your goals as soon as you have set them; the reason being that when one announces their goal, they make themselves accountable and it sets their drive. When I learnt about this secret I too set my goals and I announced it.

Secret: Announce your goal.

Habit 2: Solution Focused

When you really think about it and try to study about the rich and understand, you might think that we are really solution focused, but apparently not! When I used to look at a problem and realize that it’s too hard, I would feel like I can’t do it but when I started studying the rich, I came across a quote from ‘Jack Ma’ that I very much resonated with.

He said “Opportunity always lies where people complain. The bigger the problem you solve, the bigger the company you have.” and that was a really great realization for me, so that’s when I discovered the secret of how to look at a problem.

When you come across a problem, don’t look at it as a problem but rather see it as an opportunity. Find a solution to the problem and remember, every time you find a solution you’re adding value in people’s lives. So, the secret behind this habit is “Solution Focused equals to Adding Value in People’s Lives”.

What I’m doing here right now, is adding value to you and everyone reading this. Just imagine what an amazing feeling it is, when you add value to people’s lives by helping them find solutions to their problems. Think about what that means to you!

Secret: Solution Focused = Adding Value in People’s lives

Habit 3: Reading

This might seem very obvious but it is still very important to state it. Reading is a habit every single successful person follows. Did you know, Warren Buffett spends five to six hours a day just reading? You might think, why reading is so important, it’s because when you read, you learn a lot.

You must have heard, “Before you earn; you must learn”. The secret behind why successful people read is ‘Reading equals to Profits’. When you read you get ideas and ideas are seeds for your business and business opportunities mean profits!

Now, if you’re not yet a reader, START reading today and reap your profits.

Secret: Reading = Profits

Habit 4: Being grateful

The fourth habit that successful people adopt is being grateful. They spend at least 10 to 15 minutes a day being grateful to the things they have and I adopted this when I understood the secret of the real reason behind being grateful. The secret behind this habit is ‘Gratitude equals to Wealth’.

When you have gratitude you come from a place of abundance. You respect everything you have in life; your friends… your family… you’re grateful for so many things and then you realize that ‘oh’ you’ve actually got a lot and then this removes the desperation and the scarcity in your mind.

If you live in abundance you start to think positively. So, when I understood this, I adopted this in my life and it brings so much positivity to me.

Secret: Gratitude = wealth

Habit 5 : Taking action

The fifth habit is taking action! I was amazed when I saw successful people take massive action. It didn’t need to be the right thing or the perfect action. You just have to keep taking actions and when I incorporated this in my life, I saw my success just go through the roof!

Now the secret I discovered behind taking action is, ‘an imperfect action is better than a perfect inaction’ and this is what led me to continuously take actions regardless of the action being perfect. Every little action I take now results in bigger things.

You might not be perfect but you must take action and this leads to more and more success in the future. So if you want to be successful just keep taking imperfect actions and don’t worry about it being perfect, and that has been my biggest secret so far.

Secret: Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction


Success is not easy to achieve. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and determination. However, with the right habits in place, you can make things happen for yourself.

The five habits I have outlined above will help get you started on the path to success. Start by picking one habit and working on it until it becomes second nature. Once you have that down, move on to the next one. Before you know it, you’ll be well on your way to achieving all of your goals and dreams and be successful.
