Achieving success often does not mean an easy path. The steps necessary along the way are the product of your desire to achieve along with other aspects of a solid plan and support network. To forge such a path to success during your lifetime, it's often helpful to hear what has worked for those who are at the top.

In this video from Entrepreneur Network partner Brian Tracy, he explains how a few simple life habits can make all the difference in reaching success. Possessing an inquisitive eye to the choices you've made in past -- and which of these may have been mistakes -- can be extremely helpful. Challenges themselves can be a terrific opportunity to learn about yourself when forced to perform outside of your comfort zone.

Tracy stresses the importance of trusting your instincts as well. Recognizing your own idea of the right path to success while remaining above social pressures can be a useful habit to eventually living your passion. Chasing this life passion also takes a dedicated focus. By maintaining a focus that rises above smaller, day-to-day distractions, like the constant pinging of your device's notifcations, you can clear an easier path to success. The most successful people always keep their eye on what they are trying to achieve, while also being able to fix any problems along the way.
