Success is about consistency. It’s a process that requires consistent daily action. You must do certain, specific things every day in order to realize success tomorrow. Consistent daily behavior is also known as a habit.
The self-made millionaires in my study adopted certain habits that helped move them forward in life. In the beginning of the habit formation process it is necessary to set daily goals to engage in those habits. If you maintain a daily to-do list, specifically tailored to the thing you are trying to succeed in, that to-do list becomes part of your success process. Automatically pre-populating your to-do list with habit goals forces you to engage in those habits every day. Eventually, the habits will become automatic – you won’t need to use the to-do list goal-setting process to engage in them. This puts you on auto-pilot for success. Automating the success process is the key to achieving success.
