    Here's a list of 50 habits that would be good to learn on your way to success.

    1. You look for and find opportunities where others see nothing.

    2. You find a lesson while others only see a problem.

    3. You are solution focused.

    4. You consciously and methodically create your own success, while others hope success will find them.

    5. You are fearful like everyone else, but you are not controlled or limited by fear.

    6. You ask the right questions - the ones which put you in a productive, creative, positive mindset and emotional state.

    7. You rarely complain (waste of energy). All complaining does is put the complainer in a negative and unproductive state.

    8. You don't blame (what's the point?). You take complete responsibility for your actions and outcomes (or lack thereof).

    9. While you are not necessarily more talented than the majority, you always find a way to maximise your potential. You get more out of yourself. You use what you have more effectively.

    10. You are busy, productive and proactive. While most are laying on the couch, planning, over-thinking, sitting on your hands and generally going around in circles, You are out there getting the job done.

    11. You align yourself with like-minded people. You understand the importance of being part of a team. You create win-win relationships.

    12. You are ambitious; You are amazing - and why shouldn't you be? You consciously choose to live your best life rather than spending it on auto-pilot.

    13. You have clarity and certainty about what you want (and don't want) for your life. You actually visualise and plan your best reality while others are merely spectators of life.

    14. You innovate rather than imitate.

    15. You don't procrastinate and you don't spend your life waiting for the ‘right time'.

    16. You are a life-long learner. You constantly work at educating yourself, either formally (academically), informally (watching, listening, asking, reading, student of life) or experientially (doing, trying)... or all three.

    17. You are a glass half full person - while still being practical and down-to-earth. You have an ability to find the good.

    18. You consistently do what tou need to do, irrespective of how You are feeling on a given day. You don't spend your life stopping and starting.

    19. You take calculated risks - financial, emotional, professional, psychological.

    20. You deal with problems and challenges quickly and effectively, you don't put your head in the sand. You face your challenges and use them to improve yourself.

    21. You don't believe in, or wait for fate, destiny, chance or luck to determine or shape your future. You believe in, and are committed to actively and consciously creating your best life.

    22. While many people are reactive, You are proactive. You take action before You have to.

    23. You are more effective than most at managing your emotions. You feel like we all do but You are not a slave to your own emotions.

    24. You are good at communicating and you consciously work at it.

    25. You have a plan for your life and You work methodically at turning that plan into a reality. Your life is not a clumsy series of unplanned events and outcomes.

    26. Your desire to be exceptional means that you typically do things that most won't. You become exceptional by choice. We're all faced with live-shaping decisions almost daily. You make the decisions that most won't and don't.

    27. While many people are pleasure junkies and avoid pain and discomfort at all costs, you understand the value and benefits of working through the tough stuff that most would avoid.

    28. You have identified your core values (what is important to you) and you do your best to live a life which is reflective of those values.

    29. You have balance. While You may be financially successful, you know that the terms money and success are not interchangeable. You understand that people who are successful on a financial level only, are not successful at all. Unfortunately we live in a society which teaches that money equals success. Like many other things, money is a tool. It's certainly not a bad thing but ultimately, it's just another resource. Unfortunately, too many people worship it.

    30. You understand the importance of discipline and self-control. You are strong. You are happy to take the road less travelled.

    31. You are secure. You do not derive your sense of worth of self from what you own, who you know, where you live or what you look like.

    32. You are generous and kind. You take pleasure in helping others achieve.

    33. You are humble and You are happy to admit mistakes and to apologise. You are confident in your ability, but not arrogant. You are happy to learn from others. You are happy to make others look good rather than seek your own personal glory.

    34. You are adaptable and embrace change, while the majority are creatures of comfort and habit. You are comfortable with, and embrace, the new and the unfamiliar.

    35. You keep yourself in shape physically, not to be mistaken with training for the Olympics or being obsessed with your body. You understand the importance of being physically well. You are not all about looks, You are more concerned with function and health. your body is not who You are, it's where You live.

    36. You have a big engine. You work hard and are not lazy.

    37. You are resilient. When most would throw in the towel, you're just warming up.

    38. You are open to, and more likely to act upon, feedback.

    39. You don't hang out with toxic people.

    40. You don't invest time or emotional energy into things which You have no control of.

    41. You are happy to swim against the tide, to do what most won't. You are not people pleasers and You don't need constant approval.

    42. You are more comfortable with your own company than most.

    43. You set higher standards for yourself (a choice we can all make), which in turn produces greater commitment, more momentum, a better work ethic and of course, better results.

    44. You don't rationalise failure. While many are talking about your age, your sore back, your lack of time, your poor genetics, your ‘bad luck', your nasty boss and your lack of opportunities (all good reasons to fail), You are finding a way to succeed despite all your challenges.

    45. You have an off switch. You know how to relax, enjoy what you have in your life and to have fun.

    46. Your career is not your identity, it's your job. It's not who you are, it's what you do.

    47. You are more interested in effective than you are in easy. While the majority look for the quickest, easiest way (the shortcut), you look for the course of action which will produce the best results over the long term.

    48. You finish what you start. While so many spend their life starting things that they never finish, successful people get the job done - even when the excitement and the novelty have worn off. Even when it ain't fun.

    49. You are multi-dimensional, amazing, wonderful complex creature (as we all are). You realise that not only are you a physical and psychological being, but emotional and spiritual creature as well. You consciously work at being healthy and productive on all levels.

    50. You practice what you preach. You don't talk about the theory, you live the reality.

    It's definitely a good list but it's quite hard to read such a long post.

    Personally, I like when people post such threads from time to time because it always reminds me what I should be doing and what not. So it helps me motivate myself even more and that's what's needed in order to success!

    I find this one to be 100% true
