Differences Between Mediocre People & Successful People

Differences Between Mediocre People & Successful People

There are clear differences between mediocre people and successful people’s daily habits. Successful people have daily success habits that help them to move toward their goals, whereas mediocre people have daily mediocre habits that keep them confined to a life of mediocrity.

Below I will highlight the daily habits between the two groups. Use this information to see which group you currently reside in and make amendments where necessary so that you may live life on a different level.

Mediocre People Successful People
Inaction Take action
Talk Orientated Action orientated
Read negative news Read success related news
Read negative newspapers Read success magazines
Don’t read books Read success books
Listen to music Listen to motivational/personal development videos
Play computer games Take action
Discuss people Discuss ideas
Watch excess amounts of TV Take action
Sleep too much Rest well
Wake up late Wake up early
Small talk Take action
Time wasting Take action
Love entertainment Love action and self-education
Procrastinating Take action
No schedule Clear schedule for their day
Lack of focus Focused on success


From the table above, we can see that successful people are action takers and mediocre people are lazy. Lack of focus on becoming successful is what keeps people engrossed in the sheep life.

Schedule your days ideally on the weekend and be very intentional about your days. Every day you should be focusing your time on those tasks/activities that will have a major impact on your life and will help you to achieve your goals. Eliminate the unnecessary things from your life and do not be like the majority who spend major time engaging in minor things and then they wonder where their day has gone.

Many behave as though they have a thousand years to live, time is finite. So take action and get started on accomplishing the things you want to achieve. Time waits for no one, make the adjustments where needed and be success orientated in your daily habits.
