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.

9 Things Successful People Do To Always Get What They Want

9 Things Successful People Do To Always Get What They Want

One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was to take on the job of hosting my own weekly radio show. My radio show is about finding some of the most successful people in the world and bringing them on my show to ask them about what they did to become so successful in life and business.

In this article, I’m going to share with you some of the key takeaways I’ve picked up from talking to – and reading about – thought leaders from various fields about the things successful people do. Here, you can get some insights on how to get what you want.

Ready to dive in? Let’s go.

1. They Know What They Want

The first and most important thing that successful people do to always get what they want is so simple that most people forget about it: they figure out what they actually want.

When you know what you want, you will also know how to get what you want. If you’re unsure about what you want in life and business, I’d suggest picking up some career and self-improvement books to help you gain some clarity and focus.

2. They Are Assertive

Successful people know that they need to be both bold and sincere. Balancing these two characteristics is the essence of assertiveness.

Oh, and by the way – being assertive is not a natural talent someone is born with. Assertiveness is a learned skill and anyone can do it, including you!

3. They Learn

You may have heard of the old saying, “great leaders are readers”. For the most part, I’d say this is true.

Let me give you an example. On my radio show, I regularly ask successful people about their habits that lead to success. Do you want to know something really neat? Every single one of them reads books.

Successful people read and learn as much as they can about what they want so that they can get what they want. If you’re curious about how to get what you want, then start reading a book. If you’re low on time, subscribe to a book summary site to get the core concepts of the books in your industry quickly.

4. They Make Things Meaningful

One of the most powerful things successful people do to always get what they want is that they make things meaningful. That is, they ensure that whatever endeavor they decide to embark upon is meaningful to them (and not necessarily to anyone else). They know and understand that it’s only worth it if it matters.

5. They Ask

One big thing that successful people always do to get what they want is this: they ask.

Most people are too shy to ask for what they really want. If you are too shy to ask, you may never know how to get what you want. So, don’t be like most people.

Here’s an exercise you can do to get over it: next time you’re buying something, regardless of what it is, ask for a discount. Just do it. The worst-case scenario is that you’ll get a chuckle from the Barrista at Starbucks. The best-case scenario is that you’ll get comfortable with negotiating when it’s time to buy your next car.

6. They Take Action

Insight without action is useless. Successful people know that to always get what they want, they’ve got to take massive action.

One of the most powerful exercises I’ve ever discovered is this: never leave the sight of a goal without taking some kind of action towards its achievement. In other words, as soon as you decide you want something or as soon as you set a goal of some kind, do something – anything – that shifts you closer towards getting it.

7. They Use Their Time Wisely

Have you ever heard of NET time? It stands for “No Extra Time”.

For example: when you’re driving and sitting in traffic, are you listening to Mylie Cyrus? Or are you listening to an audiobook?

Successful people take NET time seriously. Get yourself some audiobook so you can start listening to the best business and self-improvement books available – all while you’re on your way to work in the morning.

8. They Choose to Lead

You don’t need to have formal authority to become a leader. You just need to choose yourself. All successful people know this, and so should you. Knowing how to get what you want requires knowing how to lead the way for others and yourself.

Don’t wait for anyone else to do it, because the truth is that most people want to be led anyway. So, just step up and claim authority. Be the leader you wish you always had.

9. They Contribute

Successful people know that to get what they want, they have to be willing to help other people get what they want.

What happens when you stop doing your job? What happens when you stop caring about your schoolwork? What happens when you become emotionally disconnected from a relationship?

You suffer – that’s what happens. Successful people know and understand that in order to succeed, they need to contribute. They need to add value to the lives of others. They need to do their best so that they can become the best.

So, Now What?

I hope this article has re-ignited the fire that you already had within you to be successful at any endeavor. The reason why I’m stressing the fact that you’ve already got everything you need to succeed and get what you want is that you wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t already motivated to be successful.

At the end of the day, however, all the insights in the world are worth nothing unless you combine them with action. When it’s all said and done, it’s your decision what you do with this list and how you apply it to your life and career.

But if I may, here’s what I would suggest you consider as you get started doing the things to help you succeed:

Review this list of the 9 things successful people do to always get what they want and then compare it with where you currently are at each one of these 9 things. Rate yourself in each one of the 9 things. Next, pick just ONE of them to work on every week.

For example, if you find that you’d like to learn more about the business side of the company you work for, then go read the best business books to help you do that.

Never stop learning. Always feed your mind with the knowledge you need to become as successful as possible within your area or industry. It doesn’t matter how busy you are. We’re all busy. Make the time to expand your knowledge.

And remember: every key learning should be immediately followed with action.
