5 Habits of Highly Successful People

5 Habits of Highly Successful People

Success does not usually exist in the form of a random stroke of luck or being born into wealth. Much of what makes people highly successful financially and professionally relies on building certain habits, and adjusting them to fit your needs and wants as a unique person.

Learning what these habits are and how to employ them in your own life are the first steps on the journey towards a successful, fulfilling life. Read them below: 

Organization

This means planning ahead, setting up a routine that works for you & figuring out your priorities. Sundays are a particularly good day to organize your upcoming week and divide up desired tasks and goals.

Exercise

Exercise can act as an antidepressant, improving your mood and performance along the way. Stuck in a work slump? Do some yoga or go on a bike ride to refresh. Exercise can be personalized to fit your favourite activities, just make sure it’s part of your daily or weekly routine.

Sleep

This point seems straightforward, but many people believe success comes with countless sleepless nights. Wrong! Successful people know that to get the best out of their performance and to ensure their brain can function at its fastest and clearest, they need adequate rest!

Reading

If you have not picked up a book since your high school English class, this one’s for you. While it’s important to also read for pleasure, make it a habit to read whatever you can as a means to gain knowledge & insight. Whatever it is you’re striving towards, chances are there is a book or article out there talking about it.

Positivity 

A positive attitude is not just a result of being successful – it is one of the root causes of success. This means being grateful for your connections, wins and losses and giving yourself positive self-talk under any and all circumstances – even if no one else is applauding your progress. 

We hope you are able to learn and implement a few of these habits into your routines, and reach the potential you have always dreamed of. Darman Foundation is rooting for you!

Geography of East Turkistan

Study of the physical features of East Turkistan

Map of East Turkistan, and it’s 10 neighbouring countries

East Turkistan is the land of Uyghurs and other minorities such as Kazakhs, Kyrgyzs, Uzbeks, Tatars and Tajiks. Many might think this region is located in the East because of its name. However, East Turkistan is in the northwest of China and it lies in the heart of Central Asia. The territory area is 1.82 million square kilometers, which is twice as large as the Republic of Turkey and four times as large as the state of California. It is enormous!

East Turkestan has a diverse geography. More than 43% of the region is covered with deserts and another 40% is covered by mountain ranges. East Turkestan is overlaid by beautiful rivers, lakes, grasslands and forests. One of its mountains is called Tengritagh Mountain, also known as Heavenly Mountains.  Ten countries surround East Turkistan: China and Mongolia to the East, Russia to the North, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and India to the West and Tibet to the South. 

East Turkistan was an independent country, the motherland of Uyghurs, before 1949, when China officially took possession of this territory and documented it as Xinjiang, which means “new territory” or “new border”.

The land is mainly the home to the Turkic Uyghur people and other ethnic minorities. Uyghurs were a majority in East Turkistan, until the Chinese government decided to colonize it. The ancient Silk Road, the old trade route linking Asia to the Middle East, passes through East Turkistan, a legacy that can be seen in the traditional open-air bazaars of Oasis cities, Hotan and Kashgar. East Turkistan has 14 provinces, 32 major cities and 87 small cities and towns. 

Urumqi is the capital of East Turkistan. Some of the land’s famous and historic cities are Kashgar, Ghulja, Turpan, Hotan and Oasis.
