Following is a list of specific habits of successful bloggers
- Highly successful bloggers take 100% responsibility for their actions
This means they are intensely goal oriented, develop a specific plan, and focus on outcomes. They do not get distracted by trivia. They plan their work and work their plan.
- Highly successful Bloggers are Determined and Persistent
They do not take “no” personally nor do they allow it to make them feel like a failure. No matter how tempted they are to give up, they persist toward their goals. Self-discipline is a key factor in their success. They act with urgency in everything they do. They maintain a positive attitude and always stay “up” even when the chips are down.

Every act they do is conducted for a reason. They know their intended outcome and their fallback positions. They anticipate their customers needs and concerns. They think ahead so they can respond appropriately.
- Highly successful Bloggers are fanatics about managing and guarding their time
They understand the difference between Urgent and Important. They recognize that “urgent” is somebody else’s priority thrust upon them. They treat other people’s time with respect. They are always on time for appointments. They have a schedule, they work to that schedule and they know if something is not on that schedule it does not get done.
- Highly successful people have the courage to do what they don’t like to do especially on the days they do not want to do it
They are pro-active, especially when things are slow. Instead of moaning and complaining, they get to work.

They are always learning and practicing. They know where to find answers. They know what to say and how to say it.
