21 Daily Habits Of A Highly Successful Person That Only Rich People Follow {Updated}

In this post, I’m gonna keep in front of you some most powerful Habits Of Successful People that are easy to adopt.

Did you know Why? out of the vast majority of people, very few % of people are highly effective? The answer to this BIG question mark is “their HABITS make this thing possible.”

Just think about it:

When everyone is gifted with an equal amount of time every day (i.e 24 hours a day) then, How some people quickly become successful and some are not.

What makes the difference between a successful person and the failure one.

The answer?

It totally depends upon the HABIT which they have become addicted to.

Now, let’s ignore the habits of unsuccessful people and directly dive right into the most popular habits of successful people.

Read on the complete list of…

Most Popular Habits Of Successful People

1. Read Books On A Daily Basis

Ohh seriously !!

Yes, trust me no other habit would ever beat this one because this single habit can bring 360-degree change in your life.

In fact:

This is one of the most common and acquired habits of all successful people.

Running behind success without reading books is like going to the gym without knowing the proper diet.

A book is no longer than a gift for you.

Let’s remember Garrison Keillor’s words:

“A book is a gift you can open again and again.”

If you want to be rich & successful in life then you must have to entertain yourself like a mutual fund.

Just like you keep investing in a fund again and again… similarly, keep feeding your brain as much as you can with a unique knowledge every month.

It’ll definitely give you very high returns of success in the future.

2. Set Alarm Clock At 5 am

At which time your morning alarm clock has set?

Did you know by doing a little adjustment in the alarm clock timing you would likely get 10x more time than billions of people who are not waking up early.

Let say you wake up at 8 am in the morning every day and tomorrow you decided to wake up at 5 am every day.

Now let’s calculate how much time you’ll get extra than those people who are still waking up at 8 am daily.

Here’s the calculation:

It’s 3 hours a day, 90 hours a month and almost 1080 hours a year.

And, if we divide 1080 hours by 24 then you’ll get to know that you’re getting 45 days extra in the whole year than the other people.

Now you have it, apply it in your life and take maximum benefit from it. 🙂

“Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time.”

Steven Wright

3. Do Meditation And Workout

A successful person always takes care of his/her inner and external strength.

Effective people already knew that inner peace is a way towards a happy life and overall body fitness is a fuel to deal with upcoming obstacles.

There are over 50+ benefits of doing meditation on a regular basis.

In fact:

It is one of the best ways to claim inner peace in a very short period of time.

So, from tomorrow itself as soon as you get up in the morning, head over to a silent place for doing meditation.

Also, I recommend you to do exercise daily… It will definitely give strength to your body in tough situations.

Old but still a goldmine quote:

“Health is Wealth.”

4. Stay Away From Bad Addiction

Rich and healthy people always have one secret tool in their mind which indirectly make them successful over time.

The secret tool?

They know the difference between the addiction which adds value to life and the addiction which destroys life. 

People who can’t achieve anything in their life are always addicted to things which give them temporary happiness.

For example:

Junk food, watching TV, sleeping for a longer period, social media, consuming alcohol, etc.

Whereas successful people keep addiction to the things which lead to fulfillment like:

  • Learning uniques things
  • Doing daily workout
  • Eating healthy food
  • Pushing themselves
  • Creating something new
  • Planning the day etc…

So, from now on always say:

“I have an addiction it’s called winning.”

Also, let me know which things you get addicted to from now by leaving a comment in the comment section below.

5. Spend Time With Quality People

Stay away from people who make you forget about your goal in life.

Positive and highly effective people won’t stick themselves into any drama or negativity.

They always stay away from jealousy, hatred, regret, and revenge.

The very simple recipe to achieve your target is to surround yourself with the people who have targets in life.

To be honest you do not require expensive courses to hone your personality… you can improve your personality just by surrounding yourself with right people.

Start spending your valuable time with the people who inspire you and stop being with people who are already demotivated and make you feel the same.


“The right person always lead you to the right destination.”

6. Put Efforts On Productive Work

Question for you:

What makes you very happy during your birthday.

It’s a surprise gift from your friends or party right?

Just like that surprise gifts like struggle, effort, and hard work makes an opportunity happy.

And successful people continuously give such gifts to it, that’s the reason opportunity always follows them.

“Effort and hard work construct the bridge that connects your dreams to reality.”

Now putting efforts and hard work on the thing which won’t make sense is useless.

So, make sure you only put your energy on the work which brings guaranteed results.

7. Make Their Future Planning

Always plan before you go !!

Making planning before putting hands on any work is the core habits of successful people.

Great people bring their future into the present by doing the great planning of it.

This is another great habit to avoid unnecessary mistakes and a huge amount of time while performing the task.

“An hour of planning can save you 10 hours of doing.”

So, till now if you are directly going to performing any task then I highly recommend you adopt this habit ASAP.

8. Squeeze Benefit From Failure

Another life-changing habit of successful people is:

Not to worry about the part of their life in which they face failure.

If you ever ask me which is the habit to improve quality of life then my answer would be definitely this one.

Because, rich mentality people not just worry about failure, but also try to take maximum benefit from it.


As soon as they got failed to achieve any task, such people not just sit in the corner and cry.

Rather than that, they try to find the root cause of the failure and then start improving it over time.

“Failure is success if we learn from it.”

9. Effectively Utilize Their Time

Knowing the right value of time is something that makes a person successful and happy in life.

Have a look at these magical lines:

“You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.” – Jim Rohn

This is one thousand times true because once your valuable time has gone you left with nothing in your hands.

And, this is what highly effective people know from their childhood.

So, from now onwards try to remember the task which you want to do but you are delaying it by giving excuses.

I’m hammering your mind again and again because once you loose out time from your hands then you can only be left with one thing in your life, REGRET.

10. Create Multiple Income Sources

Alright so, you might know or you probably heard from someone that:

Out of 100 percent of the population, only 3 percent of people have got 90 percent of wealth… 

And, if you took the whole wealth and distribute it equally to every single person of the total population then after few years again that 90 percent of wealth will go back to its real owners.

Why is this true?

Because those 3 percent of people have adopted a rich habit of creating multiple income sources.

And, such people make it happen very easily because they do not invest their money into liabilities.

“Surround yourself with ASSETS, not liabilities.”

11. Invest Money On Themselves

Do you want to know which is the best risk-free investment which gives you guaranteed high returns over time?

It’s investing in YOURSELF.

Rich mentality people always keep “investing in themselves” as a first priority.

Because such people already know the importance of this quote:

“Invest in yourself it pays you best interest.”

Don’t be smart by investing in yourself it doesn’t mean you have to spend all your money on yourself buying branded clothes and luxurious items.

It simply means you have to purchase books or spending on a course that can make you a better version of yourself.

So, keep acquiring new knowledge and adopt a habit to learn new things every day.

12. Confidently Handles Any Situation

Another one basic but still many people fail to adopt it is the habit of being confident in any situation.

These lines will make your day:

“It is confidence in our bodies, minds, and spirits that allows us to keep looking for a new adventure.”

Oprah Winfrey

Don’t worry or hyper if you stuck in a situation where you feel that you won’t able to handle it properly.

Just take a deep breath and increase your self-confidence because the results of such a situation will totally be depending on your confidence level.

Sure it will take some time to be confident and build that unshakable trust in yourself but still, you have to do it because successful people do not accept defeat so easily.

13. Focus On Building Relations

One of the rich habits which bring success in the life of many people is networking.

Successful people believe that the quickest way to get success in life is by building good relations with other people.

They take relations very seriously because they feel that the starting point of any BIG deal is achieving trust and building genuine relationships.

Note: While building relations such kinds of people never do any unethical things (building relations just for own sake).

They always build relations with the correct form and with an ethical mindset.


“You don’t build a business YOU BUILD PEOPLE and then people build the business.”

So, I highly recommend you to hire this habit ASAP.

People are lonely and unsuccessful because they build walls between themselves and other people.

But, you create a bridge and stay connected with each and every one. 🙂

14. Quickly Accept Their Fault

The biggest reason people remain unsuccessful because their ego conquers the whole game when it comes to their fault.

Best lines for such people:

“You learn nothing from life if you think you’re right all the time.”

Rich mentality people are quick decision-makers they quickly accept their fault and start working on it.

Such people won’t make the same mistake again and again.

Instead, their habit is to make a unique mistake every day.

15. Never Works In Comfort Zone

People remain unsuccessful for a longer period of time because they hate when someone gives them work to do which lies beyond their comfort zone.

It’s a fact that many people won’t turn their weakness into the strength within a short period of time because they are afraid to work outside their comfort zone.

Is that means successful people love to work outside their comfort zone?


The only reason successful people achieve their goals quickly because they push themselves out of their comfort zone even though they don’t want to.

Don’t get me wrong here:

I don’t mean you must have to push hard for each and every work which you hate.

But, in some cases, if you want to convert your weakness into strength then, you slightly need to push yourself hard.

“Everything you’ve ever wanted is one step outside your comfort zone.”

16. Listen To More And Speak Less

Great lines by I’ve read somewhere:

“Don’t be a parrot in life, be an Eagle.”

A parrot talks way too much but can’t fly high but an eagle is silent and has the will power to touch the sky.  

Real achievers always talk with their work.

The vast majority of successful people always have a common habit of speaking less.

Even if they know each and everything about their business they still keep their ears open for new ideas from different people.

The more you listen the more you get new ideas is the success mantra they follow.

So, my dear friend just starts following this habit from today itself you’ll definitely get some rich results in your life.

17. Always Lives In Present

Just forget about the past bad experiences and let’s start with the new beginning is the slogan of effective people.

And I’d like you also go with the same.

It makes sense, like what is the use of thinking about the wrong thing which is already gone… it will never ever make your future good.

“The longer you live in the past, the less future you have to enjoy.”

Your life success is totally dependent on how you deal with today.

So, thinking about how you can make your present good is the best thing you can do from now on.

18. Don’t Hurt Anybody’s Ego

Achieving success will be a major disadvantage if it won’t bring humbleness within you.

One of the biggest differences between successful people and unsuccessful people is: Unsuccessful people always look down on someone but, Successful people treat everyone equally.

They feel each and every human beings are equal and everyone should be treated equally.

They never judge anyone by their looks or dressing style and for every person, they give equal respect.

It doesn’t matter whether the person is rich or poor they communicate with everyone in the same manner.

Here’s the quote of the section:

“Respect people’s feelings. Even if it doesn’t mean to you, it could mean everything to them.”

19. Appreciate Everyone Efforts

“Everyone wants to be appreciated. So if you appreciate someone, don’t keep it a secret.”

Mary Kay Ash

And, high minded people always do the same !!

It doesn’t matter whether any team member of their business has given a small contribution or large they always appreciate the work of each and every person of their team.

So, if you’re working on a large project or on a small one, those who are part of your project just motivate them by appreciating their efforts.

20. Provides Value To Other’s Life

One rich habit of successful people is that they don’t just utilize their talent and skills for their own work.

In reality, they also utilize their talent to provide value in other people’s lives.

They always believe in the quote:

“Sharing is Caring.”

Just stick this sentence in your mind:

 The person who provides value in other people’s lives is more likely to stand out from the crowd than the one who is not.

21. Keeps The Feeling Of Gratitude

Last but not least the very effective habit of successful people is to keep the feeling of gratitude in day to day life.

Of course, they try hard to achieve more but also respectively keeps feeling of gratitude within themselves.

Successful people take life as a radio station… they always stay happy with the song (things which are with them) which is currently playing.

Whereas, no matter how much luxurious things could a low mindset people get they always remain unhappy with the things which they don’t have.

So, always start keeping the feeling of gratitude within you because,

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough.”

Now it’s your turn.

Figure out the bad habit in you and start adopting some change in your life.

Remember, if you want to achieve something which you never had before… then you need to do something which you never done before.
