7 Habits of a Self-Made Millionaire!Do you have any?
Many of the world’s greatest thinkers, creators, and innovators have been defined by their routines and habits. Much of their transformation from ordinary to high-figure status can attributed to “rich habits”.There are many people who say that the way you start the day is what defines your success. Taking responsibility for your own motivation and intentions is a timeless activity, and one that can lead to astronomical wins.
There is a cause and effect associated with habits. Habits are the cause of wealth, poverty, happiness, sadness, stress, good relationships, bad relationships, good health, or bad health.The good news is all habits can be changed.
Here are seven “rich habits” of self-made millionaires that you can start developing today:
Your mind dictates your reality. What you think is what you will experience. Long-term success is only possible when you have a positive mental outlook. Positive thinking is imperative. Nobody is going to be positive all the time, we’re human, but making efforts to shift your perspective consistently is going to impact your life in ways you can’t imagine. Believe you can and you will.
2. Get up early.
Get up with the people, or before. Rising at noon because you don’t have to be at an office is actually not impressive. The morning time is key.According to studies nearly 50% of the self-made millionaires wake up at least three hours before their workday actually begin. It’s a great time to exercise or move your body, power up with healthy eats, and get your mind rightIt’s also a great strategy to deal with inevitable daily disruptions, such as a meeting that went too long, egregious traffic, or having to pick up your sick kid from school.
Whether you’re writing your financial projections, planning your weekly tasks or scheming new ways to build your empire, you’ll want to create a daily goal-setting habit that will give you momentum—on a daily basis. While too many people make the mistake of chasing someone else’s dream — such as their parents’ — rich people define their own goals and pursue them relentlessly and passionately. Passion gives you the energy, persistence, and focus needed to overcome failures, mistakes, and rejection.
4. Consistency is key.
This is important not just in your personal life, but also as far as business goes. Consistency is how you build following and presence, but it’s also how you create results. It’s easy to get distracted, but you can teach yourself to starve your distractions and feed your focus.Focus on what’s important — not comparing yourself to others or worrying too much about the future. Focus on what you can do today, right now, for yourself and where you’re going.
The rich tend to think in isolation, in the mornings, and for at least 15 minutes every day.They spent time every day brainstorming with themselves about numerous things. The topics range from careers and finances to health and charity.
They ask questions such as, “What can I do to make more money? Does my job make me happy? Am I exercising enough? What other charities can I get involved in?”
Success is never exclusively self-made. That’s actually a big, annoying lie. While we can be responsible for the dreams that led us to great success, hence the title of this article, we never get where we’re going alone. The rich are always on the lookout for individuals who are goal-oriented, optimistic, enthusiastic, and who have an overall positive mental outlook. We really need each other, we need mentors, we need community. Going it alone will dig you deep into a big hole. Additionally, you need a team. A leader does not solely lead his/her own life, but also leads others on the path to greatness.
7. Integrity always.
Your word is your value. If you want to be seen as a leader, act like one in all ways. That isn’t limited to what you’ve built. The physical manifestations of success and material wealth, pale in comparison to the growth in character you experience when you understand what it means to build something of value. If you create something that will impact the lives of others, inevitably, it will impact your life in incredible ways as well. Stay in integrity. Speak with intention. Act with regality.
