20 Mouthwatering Donut Recipes To Try At Home

Donuts are an amazing treat. They are enjoyed all over the world. Most people buy them in a grocery store or bakery. But you never get that ‘wow’ factor…

So why not experiment at home?

As you go through this list, you’ll find some ‘different’ flavors. I wanted to make a list of the most amazing recipes out there. And to add to that, I also wanted more healthy options.

                                          50 Habits of Highly Successful People You Should Learn

                                          50 Habits of Highly Successful People You Should Learn

                                          If you’re like me and really into self-development, you’ve probably read many of the thousands of self-help books out there on the market. But also like me, you probably find all the information a bit overwhelming.

                                          That’s why I wanted to do the self-less task of taking the most important, life-changing lessons I’ve drawn from these books and condensed them into 50 key points.

                                          Here’re 50 habits of successful people you should learn:

                                          1. Believe It to See It

                                          Our minds tend to focus on what’s happening around us and refuse to see what could happen. Only when you trust in what’s possible and dare to dream big, big things can happen for you.

                                          2. See Problems as a Wonderful Gift

                                          While others only see problems and give up, successful people use the problem as a lesson to find improvement in themselves or the task at hand.

                                          3. Keep Looking for Solutions

                                          Even if they’re knee-deep in problems, successful people will still put all of their focus on finding solutions.

                                          4. Remember It’s All About the Journey

                                          Successful people are conscious and methodical in creating their own success. They don’t sit around doing the bare minimum, hoping success finds them.

                                          5. Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway

                                          There’s so much fear on the road to success, but instead of letting that fear control and limit them, successful people do a good job of just forging ahead regardless.

                                          6. Always Ask Productive Questions

                                          It’s all about asking the right questions. Successful people make sure they are questions that will elicit information for a more productive, creative and positive mindset moving forward.

                                          7. Understand the Best Waste of Energy Is Complaining

                                          Successful people know that choosing to see the negative side of things will only create a useless and unproductive state.

                                          8. Don’t Play the Blame Game

                                          Taking responsibility for actions and outcomes is a form of empowerment that you can build your success upon. While the act of blaming others or outside circumstances takes this empowerment away from you.

                                          Advertising

                                          9. Maximize Your Strengths

                                          Not every successful person is simply more talented than the rest, but they do use what they know they’re good at to achieve more successful results.

                                          10. Be in It to Win It

                                          Successful people are busy, productive and proactive. Instead of sitting around over-thinking and over-planning a great idea, they just take a step towards it no matter how small.

                                          11. Know That Success Attracts Success

                                          People who are successful surround themselves and seek out like-minded people. They understand the importance of being part of a team and forge win-win relationships.

                                          12. Actually Choose to Be Successful

                                          Dreaming big is a massive part of being successful even if your dream seems impossible. Ambition is a mindset that needs to be a daily conscious choice.

                                          13. Visualize, Visualize, Visualize!

                                          You’ve got to see your success in your mind’s eye even before it comes. Successful people clarify and get that certainty about what they want their reality to look like rather than being mere spectators of life.

                                          14. Be a One-Off Original

                                          Successful people look for what’s working and then create a unique spin on it. Imitating only regurgitates other people’s ideas with no originality.

                                          15. The Perfect Time to Act Is Now

                                          Waiting for the right time to act is basically procrastination wrapped up in an excuse. Successful people know there’s never a perfect time so they may as well just do it now.

                                          16. Keep Learning, Keep Growing

                                          Continuous learning is the key to a successful life. Whether it’s academic, being a student of life or actionable learning, it’s all about expanding your knowledge and personal development.

                                          17. Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

                                          Successful people have the knack for finding positive aspects in all people and circumstances no matter what.

                                          18. Having a Bad Day? Do It Anyway!

                                          We all have bad moods but it shouldn’t be an excuse to stop everything. Giving into a bad mood just stop-starts your life, slowing success way down.

                                          19. Sometimes Risky Business Is Needed

                                          Calculated risks are a must for success. It’s about weighing the pros and cons while moving forward with that element of trust.

                                          Advertising

                                          20. Accept Challenge All the Time

                                          Dealing with problems head-on is a must to be successful. Successful people also face challenges in order to improve themselves.

                                          21. Make Your Own Luck

                                          In the mindset of a successful person, there’s no such thing as ‘luck’ or ‘fate’. They take control to actively and consciously create their own best life.

                                          22. Ignite Your Initiative

                                          While many people are reactive, successful people are proactive – taking action before they have to.

                                          23. Be the Master of Your Emotions

                                          Being effective at managing emotions is key on the road to success. That’s not to say successful people don’t feel like we all do, but they’re just not slaves to their emotions.

                                          24. Champion in Communication

                                          Consciously working on effective communication skills gets anyone closer to success.

                                          25. Plan Your Life Strategically

                                          Successful people’s lives aren’t a clumsy series of unplanned events and outcomes, they methodically work at turning their plans into a reality.

                                          26. Become Exceptional at What You Do

                                          To become exceptional, you typically have to do things that most won’t. To become successful, hard decisions need to be made and acting on them is crucial.

                                          27. Choose to Live Outside of Your Comfort Zone

                                          While many people are pleasure junkies and avoid pain and discomfort at all costs, successful people understand the value and benefits of working through the tough stuff that most would avoid.

                                          28. Live by Core Values

                                          Successful people firstly identify their core values and what’s important to them, then do their best to live a life that reflects these values.

                                          29. Realize Money Isn’t Everything

                                          Money and success are not interchangeable and the most successful people understand this. Putting money on a pedestal and equating it to success is a dangerous mindset to have. Success comes in many forms.

                                          30. Don’t Get Carried Away

                                          Successful people understand the importance of discipline and self-control and as a result they are happy to take the road less travelled.

                                          31. Self-Worth Is Not Tied to Success

                                          Successful people are secure. They do not derive their self-worth from what they own, who they know, where they live or what they look like.

                                          32. Kindness Breeds Kindness (And Success)

                                          Generosity and kindness is a common trait among long-term successful people. It’s important to take pleasure in helping others achieve.

                                          33. More Humility, Less Arrogance

                                          Successful people are humble and happy to admit and apologize for mistakes. This is because they’re confident in their ability. They are happy to learn from others and happy to make others look good rather than seek their own personal glory.

                                          34. Change Opens New Doors

                                          People who are successful are adaptable and embrace change, while the majority are creatures of comfort and habit. They are comfortable with, and embrace, the new and the unfamiliar.

                                          35. Success Requires a Healthy Body

                                          It’s not just how you think, it’s about how you show up for success. Successful people understand the importance of being physically well, not for vain reasons but because being in tiptop condition creates a better personal life for success.

                                          36. Laziness Just Doesn’t Exist

                                          Successful people are never considered lazy. Yes, they can relax when they need to, but working hard is their game.

                                          37. Resilience by the Bucket Load

                                          When difficulty strikes, most would throw in the towel, but successful people are just warming up.

                                          38. Feedback Is Just Another Chance to Improve

                                          How people react to feedback determines their potential for success. Being open to constructive criticism and acting on it to improve is most seen in those who are successful.

                                          If people are hanging out with toxic and negative people, then they need to take a look at themselves. Successful people hang out with others who are positive and supportive.

                                          40. Can’t Control It? Forget It

                                          41. Swim Against the Tide

                                          Successful people are not people-pleasers and they don’t need constant approval from others in order to move ahead.

                                          43. Self-Standard Is Higher Than Most

                                          Everyone has a choice to set high standards for themselves. Successful people do this, which in turn produces greater commitment, more momentum, a better work ethic and of course, better results.

                                          44. Failure Isn’t Rationalized

                                          While many use age, health, lack of time, ‘bad luck’, or lack of opportunity to explain away their failure, the key to success is finding a way to succeed despite facing these challenges.

                                          Having an off switch and taking time to do things that make them happy is a common trait of a successful person. Take a look at here The Importance of Scheduling Downtime.

                                          46. Career Isn’t Who You Are, It’s What You Do

                                          Successful people know their career isn’t their identity. They are multi-dimensional and don’t define themselves by their job.

                                          47. Be Interested in Only the Path of Resistance

                                          While most people look for the easiest way or the shortcut, successful people are more interested in the most effective way. They look for the course of action which will produce the best results over the long term.

                                          Many spend their life starting things that they never finish, but successful people get the job done. Even when the excitement and the novelty has worn off they still follow through and finish.

                                          We’re not just physical and psychological beings, but emotional and spiritual creatures as well. Successful people consciously work at being healthy and productive on all levels.

                                          To obtain success, it’s important to practice what you preach. Successful people don’t talk about the theory, they live the reality.
