For most of us, success doesn’t just come out of nowhere. We have to work for it. Whether it’s at work or at home, we strive to be successful in everything we do.

This isn’t an easy task by any means. However, there are ways to meet your goals without driving yourself crazy.

How To Build Success From Scratch

Here are four ways to help you build success from scratch:

1. Wake Up 15 Minutes Earlier

Changing your daily habits slowly rather than all at once increases the likelihood that you will maintain them. According to Fast Company contributor Laura Vanderkam, building habits takes time.

In her article “What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast,” she suggests taking on one new habit and building it into your routine before you start another habit. Makes sense, right?

2. Have A Positive Mindset

Although having a positive mindset seems like a no-brainer, many people fall into the downward spiral of negative thinking. Instead of blaming yourself or others for your lack of success in life, try looking at things in a different perspective.

Geoffrey James touches on this concept in his column “Sales Source” for Inc. Magazine. He uses an example about how perfectionism, though it seems like a wonderful goal, is ultimately impossible to achieve.

When you realize you can’t achieve perfection, negative thoughts can overwhelm you and keep you from success. Instead, re-evaluate your goals and make them more manageable.

3. Take A Risk

Yes, taking risks is a scary concept, but taking one once and awhile can be a smart thing to do. Risk takers can be success makers!

According to Fast Company‘s article “How To Quiet the Negative Thoughts That Are Killing Your Career,” the key is to be smart about your risks. Always weigh the benefits of a risk with the losses.

4. Be A ‘New’ Leader

It’s a new world, so be a new leader. According to the blog The HR Capitalist, an old leader is very shut off from the world. It’s difficult for old leaders to accept mistakes and open up with others.

However, new leaders generally are more open, accept their mistakes, and consult their network for answers. Which one do you think is more successful?
