The Habits of Successful Women

Sharing is caring!

Everyone wants to have the “perfect” life and become successful. Though, many are not willing to change their ways to become the type of person who is successful. It’s true, our habits determine the type of life we will have. If you aren’t happy with the way things are going in your life, it could be that you need to switch up your habits. Nobody will have a perfect life. But there are certain habits that successful women share. In this blog post, I will be covering some of the common habits of highly successful women.

Successful women have failed 

Okay, let’s go ahead and put it all out there. Behind every success is a story of a time when the woman you deemed to be successful was not always on top. Everybody has had their share of struggle and hard times. Though the reason why they are so successful is because they refused to give up even when it was way easier to walk away. You clearly have goals; you wouldn’t have clicked on this blog post if you did not want to be successful. Remember that you have to go through some things before you are able to figure it all out. Think of it like this, if you fail first then you are getting the worst part out of the way early.

Women who are successful are planners 

Life is not always going to be a series of happy accidents. Truthfully, if you want something to materialize then you need to do what you can and make a solid plan. Time is very valuable and planning what you do with your time is key. Prepare for the next day the night before. Pick out your outfit, prepare your lunch, and write down what you need to accomplish so that you can practically streamline your day. Here are a few tips that you can incorporate in your life so that you can successfully plan and stay on top of your goals.

  • Create a to-do list: Take this to the next level by making your to-do list progressive. This means that your list is more than a list, it includes the priority level, status of the task and due date.
  • Maintain a tidy space: Seriously, keeping your work-space clean sounds like it wouldn’t make a difference, but it truly does. You save yourself so much time when you can easily find where things are located.  
  • Reflect: Taking the time to reflect the night before or first thing in the morning will help you figure out the best approach to take for the day ahead.

Successful women manage their time and money wisely 

Tracking your time is a habit that can take some getting used to for sure. However, doing so will help your productivity skyrocket. Not only will you figure out where the bulk of your time is going, but you will also be able to make adjustments to your schedule as needed. Tracking your time will help you see what you need to give more attention to and what you might need to step away from. Successful women aren’t in the business of wasting their time, therefore they always know how they are spending it. Speaking of spending it, every successful woman knows exactly where their money is going.

Successful women always stay on top of their finances. They have a solid budget and they know what they can afford. They have no problem resisting temptation so that they can accomplish their financial goals. Successful women prioritize their finances and maintain a healthy relationship with their pocketbooks. If you seem to never have any money, it’s likely that you do not stick to a budget.

Successful women don’t compete

Successful women are always in their own lane. They don’t compete or get ahead of themselves. You have to realize that if you want to be successful then you have to start with where you are. You might not have what you want but everything you need is already in you. Maybe you need to unlock it by spending time with yourself and figuring out what it is that YOU want. I’ve found that you might want something simply because society has told you that you need it. Truth is, you will never win if you are trying to keep up with the world. Run your own race and practice gratitude so you can live the life designed just for you.

Successful women pamper themselves 

Self-care is the best care. You will never be able to pour from an empty cup. Successful women take care of themselves. They nurture their mind, body, and spirit. I believe some people may neglect themselves in the area of selfcare because they feel as though they have to be wealthy to indulge in self-care. Though, self-care is not a luxury it is a necessity. Plus, there are many things you can do to take time for yourself without spending any money. For instance, eating healthy and enjoying your cup of coffee in the morning while writing down things you are grateful for is a great way to take care of yourself while staying balanced.

Successful Women are Consistent 

If you want something to work, you have to take it seriously. Nobody is an overnight success. At least, nobody ever got anything overnight and was able to sustain their success. If you want something to work, you’ve got to do the work. When something isn’t working don’t be so easy to give up. Keep trying and eventually you will figure it out. Remember that even the most successful women have failed. You have to be dedicated to yourself first. Try to do something every day that will help you get closer to your goal.


As I mentioned before, nobody will ever be perfect. The important thing is to continue evolving. You have to keep your head up and figure out the person you want to be in this life. Stay focused and incorporate these habits of successful women into your lifestyle and you will eventually have the results you desire. For more motivational content subscribe to the Money Multiplied Newsletter (you will get a free gift that will level up your finances!) and follow the Instagram page!
