In life, everyone wanted a successful year but only few people take the bold step to make their year a successful year. This article will give you an insight on habits that will make you happy and successful this year.
I present to you 14 habits that will make you happy and successful this year.
1. Have A Vision
Successful year begins with a vision. Set goals, develop a plan, and monitor your progress throughout the year.
Early to bed early to rise, the man ahead of you is not the smartest man on earth; it’s just that he does early what you do late.
To stay healthy this year, try as much as possible to include daily exercise in routine. This would make you stay fit throughout the year physically and mentally. Like taking a 10-30 minute walk every day and while you walk, SMILE. It is the ultimate anti-depressant.
4. Acquire More Skill/Knowledge
Life is a teacher, the more will live the more will learn. Don’t be idle, learn to improve yourself by acquiring more skill. If plan A does not work, plan B will definitely work I can assure you of that. Seek for more knowledge by attending a seminar, workshop etc. And improve your life positively. Intelligent people are successful because they never stop learning. They are always seeking for more knowledge to better their lives. Never stop learning.
There is no investment that will give you better returns than investing in yourself. To make this year a successful year then you must not depend on a single income. Make use of every opportunities to create another source of income. My friend, seriously, don’t depend on salary alone. Learn to create another source of income and I am very sure you will reap the benefits because there are many benefits in having another source of income.

6. Save 50% of your Income
Yes! Save 50% of your income. if you must get rich then start saving 50% of your income. As a salary earner, you must learn to save 50% of your income to become a successful person in life. In addition, if you have another source of income you can even save 100% of your income. Absolutely possible.
7. Surround yourself with Successful People
Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher because life is already filled with those who want to bring you down. If you want this year to be your successful year, you have no choice than to surround yourself with successful people and stop surrounding yourself with people who will discourage you when you mention that big leap you want to take.
8. Read books written by excellent minds.
Excellent minds are those great people around you that you can easily acknowledge. When you read the books written by these people, you will begin to rub mind with them, you will begin to think the way they think, act the way they act; even some of them who have died their books still transform lives for the better, even the generations after them, like Napoleon Hill, Keneth Hagin, Norman Vincent Peal, (of blessed memories) and others who are still alive like Pst. E. A. Adeboye, Dr. Mylse Munroe, Bishop David Oyedepo, Brain Tracy, Jim Rohn, Dr. Robert Schuller, Rev. Sam Adeyemi, Anthony Robbins, Robert Kiyosaki and Dr. Mike Murdock and so forth. These people have been there, their books will transform your life and you will get to your promising land this year.
9. Be Positive
Never convince yourself that you cannot make it. If you believe that you will never make it in life, then maybe you would not. The words of our mouth are very strong. Try it first and see for yourself before you jump into conclusion. Say something positive to your life not negative. Say something like I will make it in life, I am powerful, I am a positive thinker, I believe in myself deeply, and I will succeed.
10. Eat Healthily
Eat healthy foods and fruits when you are out and about. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a college kid. Drink green tea and plenty of water. This will make you live a healthy life.
11. Show Appreciation To People
The simplest way to make people feel good about themselves is your continuous expressions of appreciation to them, large or small. Just Say “thank you” on every occasion.
The more you say “thank you” to people, the more good things they will offer to you.
12. Be Kind/Be A Cheerful Giver
Give and you shall be given. the more you give, the more you will receive. If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good with you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times.
Remember, If you are helping someone and expecting something in return, you are doing business not kindness. so whenever you give out expect nothing in return but surely, you reap what you sow.
Please, note that it is not only money you can give out; give out money, love, foodstuff, advice etc. Help the needy, be generous, be a ‘Giver’ than a ‘Taker’ Just be kind to people around you and be a cheerful giver.
13. Be Prayerful
To achieve success this year you must be prayerful, with prayers all things are positive. Pray to your God for protection, grace, favour, helpers, blessings, success, divine connection etc. What is good can be improved upon and what is bad can still turn aright with prayers. With prayers, things always have a way of working out. Never underestimate the power of prayers.
14. Be Humble
Pride goes before a fall. Never have the notion that you are better than everyone else, even if you have more money than the other or your father is a governor of a state. Don’t ever forget the fact that life is unpredictable. The person you treat with disdain today may be your boss tomorrow. Be humble!
Wishing you a happy, prosperous and successful new year. Happy New Year!
