Success Habits Of The Rich You Can Do Every Day Too

Success Habits Of The Rich You Can Do Every Day Too

Success can only be sustained by having the right habits. Many people get it wrong and allow their riches to consume them. However, if you want to not only get rich, but also sustain it, you have to discipline yourself and commit yourself to successful habits. Even when you possess other factors like motivation, creativity, and persistence, it won’t be enough if you do not have the successful habits many other rich people have.

Here are 9 success habits of the rich that can be accomplished daily by you.

1. They read

I can’t emphasize how important reading is to your success. It keeps you mentally healthy and inquisitive. The brain needs action. While many will prefer to dull the mind by watching TV, playing video games, and engaging in meaningless chit-chatter, successful people make every second count. They spend their time improving their IQ by reading. As they say, “Leaders are readers.”

2. They are early risers

From Tim Cook, to Marissa Mayer, every successful person out there is an early riser. They know the importance of taking full advantage of their minds and energy as early as possible. Starting their days earlier than everyone else puts them on advantage in time and energy.

3. They set goals

They consistently work towards their primary goals. They prioritize their ambitions and pursue activities that will direct them towards a major goal. Whether it is business or leisure, they are disciplined enough to religiously pursue what they think will make them better people in the society.

4. They track their progress

It is not just about where they are going, it is also about where they are coming from. If they are pursuing a goal, there will be no attempt in attaining this goal if they cannot measure their progress and know where and how far they have come. Tracking their progress keeps them in tune and fired up with meeting their desires.

5. They maintain healthy relationships

Successful people are very selective with who they associate with. They know the importance of associating with other success driven and goal-oriented people. They don’t just simply establish these relationships, they also make sure to nurture and invest their time and energy in it. As such relationships grow, they become more successful. Successful people understand that relationships are the currency of the wealthy. They understand that nurtured relationships give a helpful companion, a respected sounding board, and relevant advice.

6. They are good money managers

Successful people have the habit of being good money managers. They spend less than they earn. Rather than spending their money recklessly, they instead save 20 percent of their net income and consider this for future investment. They understand the importance of living below their means and having a financial plan.

7. They network

They don’t get stuck in a particular spot. They reach out to gain relationships. They network and meet with other people who could be potential clients, colleagues, or investors. They understand the importance of being with others to receive feedback and gain knowledge or experience.

8. They maintain a healthy lifestyle

It is not simply about being successful externally, they also want to be successful internally. Successful people understand that their body is a vehicle for their success. They do well to keep it right by exercising, getting decent sleep, and eating healthy food that will help build their bodies. They wouldn’t let their work get the best out of them, especially enough to break down their health or their relationships.

9. They are organized

Rich people are organized. They have a habit or prioritizing and scheduling their daily activities. They don’t jump into every opportunity that comes their way. Instead, they only do things that would steer them towards their priorities. They understand their limitations. Staying in tune means that they focus their energy and resources on beneficial choices.

How to Be Productive at Home and Make Every Day a Productive Day

How to Be Productive at Home and Make Every Day a Productive Day

If you’ve ever wondered how to be productive at home or how you could possibly have a more productive day, look no further.

Below you’ll find six easy tips that will help you make the most out of your time:

1. Create a Good Morning Routine

One of the best ways to start your day is to get up early and eat a healthy breakfast.

CEOs and other successful people have similar morning routines, which include exercising and quickly scanning their inboxes to find the most urgent tasks.[1]

You can also try writing first thing in the morning to warm up your brain[2] (750 words will help with that). But no matter what you choose to do, remember to create good morning habits so that you can have a more productive day.

If you aren’t sure how to make morning routine work for you, this guide will help you:

2. Prioritize

Sometimes we can’t have a productive day because we just don’t know where to start. When that’s the case, the most simple solution is to list everything you need to get accomplished, then prioritize these tasks based on importance and urgency.

Week Plan is a simple web app that will help you prioritize your week using the Covey time management grid. Here’s an example of it:[3]

    If you get the most pressing and important items done first, you will be able to be more productive while keeping stress levels down.

    Lifehack’s CEO, Leon, also has great advice on how to prioritize. Take a look at this article to learn more about it:

    3. Focus on One Thing at a Time

    One of the biggest killers of productivity is distractions. Whether it be noise or thoughts or games, distractions are a barrier to any productive day. That’s why it’s important to know where and when you work best.

    Need a little background noise to keep you on track? Try working in a coffee shop.

    Can’t stand to hear even the ticking of a clock while writing? Go to a library and put in your headphones.

    Don’t be afraid to utilize technology to make the best of your time. Sites like [email protected] and Simply Noise can help keep you focused and productive all day long.

    4. Take Breaks

    Focusing, however, can drain a lot of energy and too much of it at once can quickly turn your productive day unproductive.

    To reduce mental fatigue while staying on task, try using the Pomodoro Technique. It requires working on a task for 25 minutes, then taking a short break before another 25 minute session.

    After four “pomodoro sessions,” be sure to take a longer break to rest and reflect.

    I like to work in 25 and 5 minute increments, but you should find out what works best for you.

    5. Manage Your Time Effectively

    A learning strategies consultant once told me that there is no such thing as free time, only unstructured time.

    How do you know when exactly you have free time?

    By using the RescueTime app, you can see when you have free time, when you are productive, and when you actually waste time.

    With this data, you can better plan out your day and keep yourself on track.

    Moreover, you can increase the quality of low-intensity time. For example, reading the news while exercising or listening to meeting notes while cooking. Many of the mundane tasks we routinely accomplish can be paired with other tasks that lead to an overall more productive day.

    A bonus tip, even your real free time can be used productively, find out how:

    6. Celebrate and Reflect

    No matter how you execute a productive day, make sure to take time and celebrate what you’ve accomplished. It’s important to reward yourself so that you can continue doing great work. Plus, a reward system is an incredible motivator.

    Additionally, you should reflect on your day in order to find out what worked and what didn’t. Reflection not only increases future productivity, but also gives your brain time to decompress and de-stress.
