7 DAILY HABITS TO A SUCCESSFUL PERSONAL BRAND

Be around the “self help” or entrepreneurial worlds for just a minute and you hear about the power of the daily habits.

Daily habits are the end all be all to having the life you want. They also are darn effective for building the brand and business you want as well.

Ironically though we all hear the glory of the daily habit, few of us have constant, positive daily habits that we do no matter what.

Blame it on society or our obsession with “instant” gratification, but committing to small tasks over a long period of time is an endgame that few of us are willing to wait for.

And that is exactly why we should all be doing it.

Success in anything requires us to be willing to do what others won't. If others won't wait and commit then we should.

Here are 7 daily habits that will help you build a solid and successful personal brand.

1. Journal.

Pen to paper is one of the best ways to know your heart. It helps clear your head of the gunk of life allowing you to show up as the real you.

2. Read.

No matter what you like to read, just read. Reading expands our minds and gives us a new perspective. And just like with journaling- paper is better. It enhances our mind in ways we haven't fully realized yet.

3. Meditate.

Sit down, calm down, and realize all of this is bigger than you. You aren't the bomb, you are merely the co-creator.

4. Vision.

Take the time to see your dreams become reality. Close your eyes and envision with as much detail as possible all of your dreams becoming reality. Play out conversations, situation… what does the room smell like, what does that fabric feel like.. bring yourself in your mind's eye to that place where your dreams become reality.

5. Play.

We take life and ourselves far too seriously. Go have fun. Do what your heart desires over what is socially acceptable.

6. Don't edit.

Growing up we think that learning to edit ourselves is the greatest gift and then you get really good at it and you realize it is the greatest curse. Unedit yourself. Say what you think, do what you want, be you.

7. Date.

Take your sexy ass out on a date. Love yourself enough to treat yourself the way you would woo a potential mate. Don't cheap out. Don't skimp. Woo yourself. Make time for you.

Daily habits are the foundation to long term success.

Recognize that this is a long game play and commit to success being a lifestyle not just a crash diet.
