All things that are the “best” in their respective areas seem to always share the same DNA or template. For example, the fastest race cars in the world all have very similar bodies, tires and general function. The most powerful supercomputers in the world all have similar layouts, circuitry, and use. That is why it makes sense that the most successful people in the world also share many skills and habits.
 
But after writing many posts on success in your typical essay format way. I wanted to create a list of these “similarities” that successful people share. So that if replicated, like the best racecar or the most powerful supercomputer. A person could copy the template and mold themself into a successful person. I also find lists to be more memorable and effective for self-help as they are short and concise. Small advice you remember and act on is always better than long detailed advice you forget.
This post below will give 100 ways to put yourself on the road to success. You have the freedom to pick and choose and start where you are most comfortable. The goal is to stick to your own pace and one by one incorporate this DNA for success into your own life.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. – Aristotle
