Common Habit of the Rich
I have a few friends who are relatively rich. One day we exchanged some financial management ideas and we talked about the common habit of the rich. We concluded that the rich reads a lot.
I remember there was a property investment seminar one year back. The speaker raised a question to the audience “who in this room reads?”. Almost all of them raised their hands. To be honest, most the them are successful (rich) at what they were doing, they were mostly investors and business people.
Common Habit of the Rich
Just think about it, have you seen any rich person swiping his / her phone all the time, playing games and checking out the social media? Try to look around you, the rich never eat alone.
Rich people read more than any other people. The rich read regularly when they have free time, even when they dine.
So, let’s spend less time on Facebook checking out what other people are doing and read!!
#2 Seminar and Training!!
Have you realized that the rich likes to attend seminars? The key is they like to learn. Learning is the key to success. Some rich people pay thousands just to attend courses by well-known speakers and trainers. To be honest, if you want to meet rich people and learn how to earn money, just attend some courses or seminars. I am sure that you will see some of them. The rich listen from the richer and the richer learn from the super rich.
“When you Talk you are only Repeating what you know; but when you Listen, you may Learn something new.“, Dalai Lama.
The quote above explains it all. If you think you know everything, you talk and talk. Just remember that when you listen, that is when you are learning. Participate and attend seminars, listen and learn. Most importantly, implement what you learn.
Set Goals, Not Wishes
These two words clearly have different definitions. I don’t mean the definitions from the dictionary. Let me simplify that in layman terms – we cannot control the outcome of a wish, but we can control the outcome of a goal.
To achieve your goal, then it is to plan and take actions. Successful people do not procrastinate. The word “Procrastination” is a disease and it impairs quality. Don’t wait and wish but take action to achieve your goals.
The followings are some ideas how not to procrastinate.
- To do list. I always do this every morning. To do list is a short term/ daily goals. It helps to complete most of the items I want to do every day. By practising this every day, you develop the habit of taking actions.
- Set artificial deadlines – I mean fake deadlines. There is nothing wrong with finishing earlier.
- “DO IT” – these are the two words that one should use in self-nagging technique. Whenever you receive a task or you have set a goal. Simply repeat these words “DO IT!! DO IT!” over and over again until you start executing the task.
It is rather a short post. But I just want to vocalize my thought. Remember these common habits and get hold of them.
Happy reading and learning!!!
