12 Habits of extremely Successful and Wealthy people
In this post I am going to talk of a few of the day-to-day habits of the successful and wealthy people. Hopefully you’re able to apply them to your very own business life and grow closer to your magic number.
1. Rise early in the morning.
Take 100 millionaires from across the world and I’ll bet you not one of them sleeps in. The majority of these individuals are up at 6:00 or 7:00 a.m. slaving away while the rest of us are still eating pancakes. If you want to have both the time and the energy to fit everything in which has to be accomplished in a wealthy individual’s day, you should begin to rise earlier. Get moving as early as possible.
44% of wealthy people wake up 3 hours or more before work starts vs. only 3% of poor people.
2. Set goals.
It all start with Goals, if we don’t have goals in life we don’t have a direction what we want to achieve and it makes us run in circles or just make us stay static.
Advice Write down on a paper your 10 short term goals (1-3 months), 10 medium term (6months to a year) goals, and 10 long term (1 to 5 years) goals. Visualize them.
When you achieve a Goal cross them off of you TODO LIST. after you have reached 5 goals see if these goals are still valid what you want, if needed remove the obsolete ones, and add new ones to get to 10 goals. It will keep you focused and motivated to achieve the next one.
Sometimes the goals can look to big , and need to split up in smaller ones. Don’t underestimate yourself, from the moment you reach a Goal Celebrate it. If you fail, don’t worry, at least you tried. Keep focusing and evaluating your achievements while going forward. some goal will go faster then others. You can Consider your Goal-List as your wishes that you would like to see achieved.
– Short term goal, Get a new cellphone
– Medium term goal: master a new skill
-Long Term Goal: buy a Car, house, gain a million.
80% of wealthy people are focused on accomplishing some single goal. Only 12% of the poor do this. In addition, 67% of wealthy people write down their goals.
3. Exercise on a daily basis.
Many millionaires are extremely busy from the time the sun rises to well after the sun sets, juggling new projects, daily affairs, and a variety of commitments. Yet they always find time in the day to exercise.
76% of wealth people exercise aerobically several days a week.
4. Do not Gamble, Donate instead.
Usually, becoming a millionaire isn’t an accident. Absolutely, it’s possible to win the lottery, but the odds are 1 in 304 billion. Gambling is made so that the House has always the edge in favor. When you gamble just as a distraction to pass time, put the limits you want to lose, because for sure you will. if you reach your limit, pass and walk away, you had a good time. In case you win, put the money aside and play with your profits. you will have a longer night. But if you cant control yourself, DONT do it. its all about managing the risk you want and can take. Better would be donating to a good goal instead of throwing it away like this.
Successful people allot time to give back to their community by working with charities, volunteering and donating. Not rich? No problem. Volunteer at your local soup kitchen, help at the nursing home, or teach kids to read. Many times, your time and the pleasure of your company is enough.
Only 6% of the wealthy play the lottery vs. 77% of low income people.

79% of wealthy people network five hours a month or more.
6. Do not entertain self-doubt.
The wealthy hate risk as much as the average guy, yet they deal with it. It is important that you take risks. Calculated ones. It’s like bravery–it’s said to be the mastery of fear, not the absence of it. It isn’t that wealthy people do not possess self-doubt; they simply handle it better than most people.
7. Exploit what works for you.
If you discover something that you’re obviously good at and something that is making money, you ought to attempt to exploit this avenue for as long as possible. Do not waste time searching for something new, as you have something that already works.
8. Take one hour for lunch.
Many of the wealthy people I know will stop for a minimum of one hour for lunch. It isn’t that they desire a break to eat elegantly or to goof around; it is because they know it is crucial for efficiency. If you frequently strain your eyes, they’ll become sore and you’ll get a headache. The same holds true for your level of concentration. You must relax. You have to move your legs around, get your blood flowing, and receive a bit of sunshine. It’ll open up your mind and rejuvenate your spirit.
70% of rich people eat less than 300 calories of junk food per day, while 97% of poor people eat more than 300 junk food calories per day.
9. Know when to stop working.
Oftentimes, as a self-employed business owner, I’ll fall into that habitual trap of working long into the evening, thinking that I’ll get more work accomplished. And the irony of it is that I seldom do. Usually, I get so exhausted that I do not properly function or so wiped out that the following day will be a total write-off. Do not do it. Stop working at 5:00 or 6:00 p.m. and do not do anything work-related (which includes checking your phone or emails) until the next day.
10. Make time every day to study.
Constantly improve your skills
It’s a key point most overlook. Your education isn’t complete when you finish college. It isn’t finished when you get your first $100,000-per-year job. You must frequently study new ideas and methods. However, the most important thing includes studying people’s failures. History doesn’t have to repeat itself with your product launch or bank account. Figure out where other people went wrong so that you can avoid making the same mistakes. If you take away anything from this article I hope it’s this. I hope you’ll work for the benefit of other people or else turn off your computer and go spend time with your children.
86% of high income people believe in lifelong educational self-improvement.
11. Read. A Lot.
Think book nerds are losers? It’s quite the opposite, actually. Last I checked, they rule the world. Reading helps you learn from the mistakes and successes of others. Instead of just diving in; relying on your guts and motivation to lead you, reading gives you a mental map to bypass rookie mistakes people make in life.
88% of the wealthy read for 30 minutes or more each day for education or career reasons. Only 2% of the poor do so. In addition, 63% of rich people listen to audio books during their commute.
12. Limit Your TV time.
As mentioned above, reducing your TV time, and instead educate yourself, by reading books and study and practice new skills will bear fruit always, since you increase your value continously this way.
67% of wealthy people watch one hour or less of television per day vs. 23% of the poor. Only 6% of wealthy people watch reality TV vs. 78% of the poor.
