But now a days people are very spendthrift even me. We use to spend our money beyond our means. If we find anything good on internet we use to buy it though we don’t need it. But successful people are usually frugal they know to live within their means.

I don’t say you to be frugal but value your money and buy the things you really need. This will not only help you to save your money but will also help you to establish some control over you.

Be honest, what would you do if you get 2 hours of free time. Most probably you will use your phone or you may watch TV or you may do find some other sources for your time pass. But they instead of doing these things, utilize their time in completing their pending works. 

I also recommend you to utilize your time in better way by completing your pending works and doing some extraordinary works to improve yourselves.

They don’t want to loose even their one second have they set some targets. Or in other words they schedule their time. They make time tables and organize their time in such a way that they can complete their whole task without wasting any time. 

For example, If they need to complete 10 tasks then they will divide their day into 10 parts leaving a small break between them. If they have 12 hours of working day then they would give 1 hour of time for each take giving 12 minutes of break between them. 

This even worked best for them. This helped them to complete their task perfectly without losing time. You can also use some time table so that your time would be utilized properly.

If you have ever noticed, then you might hsee realised that good people speak less. They never shout. They keep themselves calm and try to observe their environment by listening to others. The same thing is with the successful people.

We usually use to shout in order to keep our words at the top. But they instead of shouting, keep themselves calm and quiet and listen more to other. 

Most of them hate speaking too much. They speak only when they really need. In this way they keep their mind collected. And hence they can work with their full efficiency.

In this way they also make a good personality among people. To make it easy I want to ask a question. What type of person do you like? One who speak every time and speak fuck or one who speak less but talks sense. A good majority of people would like the person who speak less but talk sense. 

Moreover a person who work less seems to be like much intelligent and sophisticated. It is scientifically proven that speaking less is a good habit as it helps you to keep your mind calm. So you can also accompany this habit in order to develop yourself.

9. They talk to themselves.

Have you ever seen people talking to themselves like fools. I have seen it many times even I use to talk to myself a lot. You may find it little weird but many successful people use to talk to themselves. They don’t do it everytime but when ever they are free and along. 

This is not very beneficial but it helps in many ways. If you will talk to yourself then you can find solution of any problem much easily. Moreover it helps you to express yourself to you. I mean you can talk the to thing with yourself which you cannot talk to others.

People usually talk to themselves when they are along and free. Sometime they talk about a problem or something they have some free talk. 

10. They pre-plan their day and don’t take immediate actions.

As I told earlier they have their own time table and schedules so they may save their time. They plan most of their things much earlier so that they don’t need to worry about anything. They know when to eat when to sleep and when to work. 

More over they don’t take immediate actions neither big nor small. They think so many times before taking any actions. What would you do if you see a brand new shoes on Amazon provided you have sufficient money with you.  You may probably buy it.  But rich and successful people think more than hundred times before taking that shoe ” do I really need it”. You can say them as a frugal people.  But it is  among the most common habits of successful people.

Suppose your friend ask you to join them for a party.  What would you do?  You may immediately accept him. But you should not do this. You should think twice before accepting him if you have some other formal engagement. This will help you to keep your self safe.  Moreover it is a positive habit.
