When you are a hard worker, you become a magnet for success. You don't have to go out looking for success. Instead, your diligence, determination and focus will cause success to find you. Those three character traits aren't developed by accident. They are only developed as you consistently exercise daily disciplines.

Create a list of goals to keep you focused on the work that needs to be accomplished. Instead of creating just a daily goals list, create monthly, weekly and yearly goals as well.

Create a daily “to-do” list. The purpose of the to-do list is to break down the steps you must take each day to reach the goals that you listed in step 1.

Focus on your daily to-do list every day. Don't veer from it. Cross off each task after it is done. This will give you a visualization of how much work remains to be done to reach your goal. If you finish your to-do list early, don't stop working. Instead, start working on your to-do list for the next day.

Avoid distractions while you are working. Turn off the television, radio and cell phone. Don't waste time surfing on the Internet and using social media sites. If you want to browse the Internet, only do it during your scheduled break.

Get an accountability partner. Check in with your accountability partner, on a regular basis, to let him know what you have accomplished.

Reward yourself when you accomplish your goals. By taking time to reward yourself, you develop the mindset that hard work really does pay off. These may be little rewards. However, as the little rewards add up, you will find yourself beholding the big reward, the reward of lifetime success.
