Be Mindful of Your Appearance 

A lot of people learn this the hard way as adults no longer under the authority of their parents. They realise that building self-discipline and willpower requires them to pay attention to personal hygiene, appearance, organisation, and cleanliness of their environment. In the absence of an authority figure, they adopt these habits to enable them to stay focused and organised.

Set Incremental Goals

Goal setting has always been part and parcel of the production process. However, it is one thing to set goals and it is another to set them in a way that they work for you. Start by setting small goals for yourself. Once you achieve the simple goals, set bigger goals for yourself. As you keep doing this, the more you will get past your preconceived limitations. The purpose of this is to help you aim for things that you think are beyond your reach. It is a great way to become a high achiever.

Broaden Your Knowledge Base 

People who are successful in their fields are knowledgeable about not just their own fields but other fields as well. This is referred to by some as the concept of T-Shaped skills. A T-shaped person has a wide base of general skills and knowledge that supports their more concentrated knowledge in one area. To become a T-shaped person in your business or career, gain deep knowledge in your area of interest but try to at least gain fundamental knowledge across other disciplines and apply this knowledge. This opens the doors for more opportunities and allows you to be more self-reliant and productive. Featured Image Source: Ugaoo
