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.

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

The Success Mindset

Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

How To Create a Success Mindset

People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

2. Look For The Successes

It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

3. Eliminate Negativity

You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

4. Create a Vision

Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

An Inspirational Story…

For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
