Here Are 10 Traits Of A High Achiever - And What You Should Probably Be Doing If You Want To Be One

There are a few qualities that set high achievers apart from the rest of us, a new study has found.

Commissioned by Chobani, The Healthy Habits of Australian High Achievers, has surveyed 800 successful and everyday Australians to find out what habits and traits makes a person a “high achiever”.

After studying a range of work and lifestyle aspects, high achievers were found to outscore non-high achievers on every measure tested.

The study found that 65% of high achievers ranked eating a nutritious meal and getting at least 7 hours sleep each night as the two most equally important activities of every workday. It was also revealed that successful people place a higher importance on socialising, professional development and exercise than non-high achievers do.

Here are ten of the most noteworthy differences between a high achiever and a non-high achiever – and what you should probably do more of if you want to be more successful.
