The Relationship Of Success & Habit

The Relationship Of Success & Habit

As a freelancer, we all wish to be successful! Our definition of success might vary, but we all have bigger goals to accomplish!

And most of the time, we tend to get so busy looking for a secret route that will lead to instant success! But honestly, there’s no underground route to success!

The only way you can grow as a freelancer is to work hard and be smart.

But your habits play a massive role in bringing you closer to success.

RELATIONSHIP MATTERS A LOT

RELATIONSHIP MATTERS A LOT

Stop considering your projects as a one-time gig!

Honestly, there’s nothing like a one-time gig for an experienced freelancer. They believe in building rapport and long-lasting relationships with the clients. That pays them back very well in the form of more work, recommendations, referrals, excellent testimonials, and case studies.

As a freelancer, these are the building blocks of your successful career.

The only key to attaining all these is building a good relationship with clients.

SET YOUR PRIORITIES RIGHT

SET YOUR PRIORITIES RIGHT

Freelancers tend to struggle a lot when it comes to time, tasks, and slot management.

We can spend too much time on tasks that don’t need our immediate attention and in the process end up forgetting about the ones that are close to deadlines.

Follow This Method:

  • Note down the deadline for each project you are working on!
  • Then note down all the tasks you need to do to mark the project or a milestone complete.
  • Assign all these tasks a priority number from 1 to 10, depending on their importance.
  • Every day, you can pick out 5 or 6 tasks from all your projects and work on them.

SCHEDULE OR PLAN YOUR WHOLE DAY

SCHEDULE OR PLAN YOUR WHOLE DAY

A productive day Is always a well-planned day!

It means that even though you have all your tasks sorted out but didn’t plan your whole day, it won’t make much difference. You’ll still end up short on time to do other things.

Remember, you are not only working for clients; you need time to work on your things, marketing, emails, portfolio, social media, client hunting, and the list goes on.

Feeling stressed!!! You should, I lived the same lifestyle as a freelancer for the first two years.

The only way out was to plan your whole day and get used to doing that every day!

KNOW YOUR WORTH AND VALUE

KNOW YOUR WORTH AND VALUE

Getting paid less! Not being able to assign the correct price tag! Questioning your worth and values! Doubting your skills!

It has happened to every freelancer at a certain point in their freelancing career. There’s no escape, it’s part of the learning curve!

No one can assign you’re worth other than yourself! They don’t know how hard you have worked to master your skills, to deliver value. They don’t know your story.

So stop doubting yourself, questioning your worth! If you think you are providing value to clients, the client is generating profit because of your work, then charge accordingly.

FIND AN ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER

FIND AN ACCOUNTABILITY PARTNER

You’ll have like millions of excuses to give yourself to justify your delays, unproductiveness.

You’d end up wasting days that you could have used to get ahead in the game.

It’s quite a common thing for most freelancers. After all, we all go through quite similar situations in the beginning days. The decisions you make in these beginning days are what going to shape your career as a six-figure, seven-figure freelancer.

How do you get out of this procrastination cycle? How can you accomplish more?

Find an accountability partner! It can be anyone who cares about you and will help you keep in check.

NEVER STOP LEARNING

NEVER STOP LEARNING

Skills, knowledge, experience are the three critical aspects behind the success of every six-figure freelancer.

How do you get knowledge? How do you upgrade and learn new skills? How do you gain more experience?

LEARN! Keep learning.

You can’t stop learning because the moment you will, you will lose your position, your success to someone who is right behind you, and still eager, excited to learn new things.

Freelancing is a rat race! We all are running, competing, and growing consistently. The moment we show signs of laziness is when we lose our spot.

I firmly believe the main reason behind every six-figure freelancer is their habits. If you want to be a six-figure freelancer, then the first thing you need to do is make some habits that will help you climb the ladder of success faster than everyone else.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
