INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE ABOUT SUCCESS "Success is the progressive realization of a worthwhile goal or dream.” ~ Paul J. Meyer
Paul was considered by many to be the founder of the self-improvement industry. His 24 full-length programs have sold more than 2 billion dollars worldwide, more than any author in this field. He founded Success Motivation Institute. 1928 - 2009
What success habits do you need?As someone who was inspired in my late twenties by my Karate teacher to achieve life success, here are my top 5 recommended success habits:
1. READ EVERY DAY - I have a constant supply of books, mostly self-help on my bed-side table. I am a slow reader and only read a few books a year, but I’ve been serious about the habit of reading since I was 30. This year, I set a resolution to read one book a month. If you really want to accelerate learning, read one book a week. Read books that successful people have written in the areas in which you wish to be successful. Books about making money, leadership, health, relationships, management, starting a business, hobbies, career development, travel, adventure and leaving a legacy. Decide you will read at least a few pages or an entire chapter each day. Podcasts are a good alternative. Some of the most successful people in the world (Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Warren Buffet) are avid readers, all reading many books a month!
2. EXERCISE DAILY - There is no single greater habit you can establish than to exercise every day. Our bodies are designed to live an active life, not the sedentary life that our modern lifestyle has evolved to. There is only one way to counter our inactive lifestyle and that is through aerobic exercise and lifting weights. If you do this for life, there is no reason (other than unlucky genetics) that you can’t be skiing when you are in your eighties. Read the book Younger Next Year. The author Chris Crowley is a living example of good health. This book has inspired thousands of people around the globe to exercise. Find out why this is especially important after you turn age 32. See link below featuring my "book report" of this book.
3. SCHEDULE A DAILY POWER HOUR - Many successful people have made the habit of a power hour devoted to certain rituals incorporating a combination of reading, exercise, journaling, meditation, planning and reviewing their goals for the day/week/month. Robin Sharma wrote a best selling book called the 5AM Club on this very principle. This habit is easier to keep when it is done in the morning, before the start of your day. My wife and I exercise to YouTube videos by a husband and wife team running a company called Fitness Blender. Highly recommended. I also write in my journal every morning.
4. SAVE AND INVEST 10% OF YOUR PAY CHEQUE - Controlling your spending money so that you are saving and investing at least 10% of your income, is a top success habit of many financially successful people. Starting this early in your twenties or thirties will allow time for compound interest to perform its magic. If you don’t know what this is, research it now. If you decide to wait to develop this success habit until you are financially ready, you will miss out on the benefit of time and compounding. It is possible to become a millionaire in your life time by creating and sticking with this habit. If you want to become very wealthy, save and invest 20%. Cut your spending on non-essentials and materialism to make this happen.
5. WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS - Writing down goals and taking time to plan what is important to your life is the foundation of many successful people. I’ve been focused on goals for more than 25 years and attribute much of our achievement to writing down and focusing on goals. I wrote out 100 Life Goals at the age of 30 and am still working to achieve many of these goals. It led to my wife and I owning our own street of 4 heritage homes in one of the best cities in Canada. Put more time into planning your life than you would a party or a vacation. Remember that success is not just financial, it's the quality of your health, family, relationships, career, hobbies and so much more.
Making a journal or log entry daily every time you complete a success habit is a great way to develop your habits, until they become automatic. Once you start logging your daily exercise as an example, you won’t want to “break the chain” of exercising, once you’ve logged doing this every day after the first 30 days. I’m currently doing this with 100 pushups or sit-ups every day and it is holding me accountable.
Focus on these 5 habits and life success is certain to follow.

Book report - "Younger Next Year"I set a New Years resolution this year to read one book a month. I've just completed reading my 2nd book (February) called "Younger Next Year" by Chris Crowley and Henry S. Lodge, M.D. I've read this book before.
