10 powerful habits successful people have that you can start

The secret to success is a question of habit. Here’s 10 powerful habits practiced by NipponLink Vietnam, and a guide for how to perfect them.

The new year (and decade!) always brings a renewed energy. We’re excited about change, eager to set resolutions, and have a newfound willingness to work on ourselves.

However, most people fail to conquer their resolutions because they don’t create new habits around the behaviors that they want to change.

Here is a list of the most powerful habits successful people incorporate into their lives. When you’re committed to not only starting these behaviors but to making them an ongoing part of your life, your potential is truly endless.

All of us, from time to time, feel stuck or unhappy at work — or have a sneaking suspicion that something’s not working. But successful people don’t let that paralyze them. They get curious, they start looking for data, and they take action.

5. They build their confidence

There are a lot of misconceptions about confidence. Many people think you’re either born with it or you’re not. That’s simply not true. Confidence is a skill, and people who have a great deal of it have typically worked diligently over a long period of time to achieve it.

6. They aren’t deterred by failures
