13 habits of self-made millionaires, from a man who spent 5 years studying rich people

by Darpan Sachdeva

-Via Business Insider (Kathleen Elkins)

All self-made millionaires had to start somewhere.

Much of their transformation from ordinary to seven-figure status can attributed to “rich habits,” a term coined by Thomas C. Corley, who spent five years researching the daily habits of 177 self-made millionaires.

“From my research, I discovered that daily habits dictate how successful or unsuccessful you will be in life,” he writes in his upcoming book  “Change Your Habits, Change Your Life.” “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, Corley notes. Here are a few “rich habits” of self-made millionaires that you can start developing today

 

1. They read consistently.

The rich would rather be educated than entertained. As Corley writes, “Eighty-eight percent of the rich devote thirty minutes or more each day to self-education or self-improvement reading … Most did not read for entertainment … The rich read to acquire or maintain knowledge.”

Corley found that they tend to read three types of books: biographies of successful people, self-help or personal development, and history.

 

2. They exercise.

“Seventy-six percent of the rich aerobically exercise 30 minutes or more every day,” Corley reports. Aerobic exercise includes anything cardio, such as running, jogging, walking, or biking.

“Cardio is not only good for the body, but it’s good for the brain,” he writes. “It grows the neurons (brain cells) in the brain … Exercise also increases the production of glucose. Glucose is brain fuel. The more fuel you feed your brain, the more it grows and the smarter you become.”

3. They hang out with other successful people.

“You are only as successful as those you frequently associate with,” Corley writes. “The rich are always on the lookout for individuals who are goal-oriented, optimistic, enthusiastic, and who have an overall positive mental outlook.”

It’s equally important to avoid negative people and influences, Corley emphasizes: “Negative, destructive criticism will derail you from pursing success.”

 

4. They pursue their own goals.

“Pursuing your own dreams and goals creates the greatest long-term happiness and results in the greatest accumulation of wealth,” Corley writes.

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 makes work fun,” writes Corley. “Passion gives you the energy, persistence, and focus needed to overcome failures, mistakes, and rejection.”

5. They get up early.

Nearly 50% of the self-made millionaires in Corley’s study woke up at least three hours before their workday actually began.

It’s a 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.

“These disruptions have a psychological effect on us. They can drip into our subconscious and eventually form the belief that we have no control over our life,” Corley writes. “Getting up at five in the morning to tackle the top three things you want to accomplish in your day allows you to regain control of your life. It gives you a sense of confidence that you, indeed, direct your life.”


6. They have multiple sources of income.

“Self-made millionaires do not rely on one singular source of income,” Corley states. “They develop multiple streams. Three seemed to be the magic number in my study … Sixty-five percent had at least three streams of income that they created prior to making their first million dollars.”

Examples of these additional streams are real-estate rentals, stock market investments, and part-ownership in a side business.

7. They find and check in with mentors.

“Finding a mentor puts you on the fast track to wealth accumulation,” Corley writes.

“Success mentors do more than simply influence your life in some positive way,” he continues. “They regularly and actively participate in your success by teaching you what to do and what not to do. They share with you valuable life lessons they learned either from their own mentors or from the school of hard knocks.”

8. They’re positive.

“Long-term success is only possible when you have a positive mental outlook,” Corley states. “In my research, positivity was a hallmark of all the self-made millionaires.”

The problem for most people is that they’re completely unaware of their thoughts, positive or negative, he explains: “If you stop to listen to your thoughts, to be aware of them, you’d find most of them are negative. But you only realize you are having these negative thoughts when you force yourself to be aware of them. Awareness is the key.”

9. They don’t follow the herd.

“We so desire to blend in, to acclimate to society, to be a part of the herd, that we will do almost anything to avoid standing out in a crowd,” Corley writes. Yet “failure to separate yourself from the herd is why most people never achieve success.”

Successful people create their own new herd and then pull others into it, Corley says: “You want to separate yourself from the herd, create your own herd, and then get others to join it.”

10. They have good etiquette.

“Self-made millionaires have mastered certain rules of etiquette principles you have to master if you want to be a success,” Corley writes.

These include sending thank-you notes, acknowledging important life events, such as a wedding or birthday, eating politely and using table manners, and dressing properly for various social events.

11. They help others succeed.

“Helping other success-minded people move forward in achieving their goals and dreams helps you succeed,” Corley writes. “No one realizes success without a team of other success-minded people. The best way to create your team is to offer help to other success-minded people first.”

You don’t want to give help to anyone and everyone, Corley notes: “You want to focus on helping only those who are pursuing success, are optimistic, goal-oriented, positive, and uplifting.”

12. They dedicate 15 to 30 minutes a day to just thinking.

“Thinking is key to their success,” Corley observes. 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,” he explains. 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?”

13. They seek feedback.

 

“Fear of criticism is the reason we do not seek feedback from others,” Corley writes. “But feedback is essential to learning what is working and what isn’t working. Feedback helps you understand if you are on the right track. Feedback criticism, good or bad, is a crucial element for learning and growth.”

Additionally, it allows you to change course and experiment with a new career or business. As Corley says, “Feedback provides you with the information you will need in order to succeed in any venture.”

11 Things must give up to achieve success in life

by  Darpan Sachdeva





”Somebody once told me the definition of hell:

“On your last day on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.” — Anonymous

Sometimes, to become successful and get closer to the person we can become, we don’t need to add more things — we need to give up on some of them.

Getting successful  and rich in life is not easy.It takes lots of handwork and persistence.It takes discipline, focus, and a set of core values that guide you around the emotions and stress of daily combat.

You can easily get sidetracked with all the strategies and resources available to you with the modern technology .These tools and strategies are constantly changing on daily basis..You find yourself chasing tactics one after another, hoping that you will eventually get rich with one of them.

You try one ,it does not work for you and then change to another strategy which again does not work for you and henceforth.As you repeat that cycle, the idea of becoming a millionaire becomes blurry. What used to be very clear now seems frantically out of reach.

One things thats for sure that all rich and successful people know  are not only the things and habits that are to be done but also teh things that are to be given up and not be done what so ever. Here are eleven things you have to give up to achieve success.

1.Give up on need to be perfect:

Perfectionism is based on the false belief that if we do things perfectly.We can avoid failure.You just need to be honest about those mistakes and learn from the results that you achieve. It does you no good to pretend like you’re more successful that you really are. It stops you from doing the things that would help you achieve your goals.

Its about taking those baby steps on everyday basis that take you towards the bigger goal in your life.Its always about to try and do your best  and move ahead on regular basis.

Always favor progress over perfection.

 

2.Give up on being a know-it-all:

Don’t be that person that cuts everyone off mid-sentence. Listen to people. Don’t interrupt your employees or your customers. Don’t roll your eyes and stomp your feet while you wait for the person who is talking to stop. That’s selfish and shortsighted. And besides coming off as completely arrogant, you are missing out on important lessons by acting that way.

Yes, for surely ,a lot of things we hear are irrelevant ,unhelpful and the stuff that is criticism and insane.But if you can listen long enough ,you might get that little important information that happens to be the next essence that takes you ahead on your road to success

Listen for those moments. Ignore everything else.

3.Give up on Saying YES to things that do not support your Goals:

Successful people know it fully well that to get some thing in life more than average is possible only by sacrificing more than average.To be able to say NO to things that give results of instant gratification for the goals that would give long term fruition.

 

4.Give up Whinning:

“It’s not about the cards you’re dealt, but how you play the hand.”
― Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture

Successful people know that they are responsible for their life, no matter their starting point, weaknesses, and past failures.

Stop being the person who has to help “keep everyone else’s feet on the ground.” That’s just an excuse for you to whine and mope and be unnecessarily negative. No one likes a whiner. That’s just the truth.




5.Give up expecting life to be always fair

Stop pretending like you’re the only one who has bad, unexpected circumstances happen to them. Everyone lives in the same sometimes-erratic universe. You didn’t get it any worse than anyone else. Enough already with the theatrics. Rich people don’t get that way by sulking.

Always remember no matter how strong you are,life will beat you to your knees and make you fall.Success is not about falling and getting the hits ,its about getting back after the falling and hits.

 

6.Give up on  the fixed mindset:

“The future belongs to those who learn more skills and combine them in creative ways.” ― Robert Greene, Mastery

Successful people fully understand the value of the “Learn all” person over the “know all” person.They invest an immense amount of time on a daily basis to develop a growth mindset, acquire new knowledge, learn new skills and change their perception so that it can benefit their lives.

Remember, who you are today, it’s not who you have to be tomorrow.

7.Give upon not  taking responsibility:

In any area of your life, what you do has consequences. Sometimes those are good. Other times you are left with regrets. Actions have results. That’s a universal truth. It never changes. You will always get the results deserved by the activity that you’re doing.

You need to believe that what you do can make a difference. Hard work matters. A kind word matters. Honesty matters. Candor, personal responsibility, and fairness — they all matter. Because the lifestyle you lead is what ultimately determines how rich and successful you become. Make sure you’re doing the right things.




8.Give up your fear of seeking help:

You can’t succeed alone. If you want to succeed, you must ask for help. Let me be clear, asking for help does not mean asking others to do your push-ups for you.

Be confident about your need for asking for help.

Reach out to entrepreneurs, practitioners, and people with skills you need to succeed.

9.Give up on your need to make every one happy:

Trying to make everyone happy is a sign of weakness. You could have the best product in the world and some customers will still be upset. You could have the greatest customer service and some clients will be unhappy still. And, that’s OK.

 

10.Give up on your fear of the unknown:

Successful people are always ready to face the new upcoming and surprises while they try hard towards their success.They  are never afraid of the unknown.

11.  Give up your Vulnerabilities:

We are all vulnerable. Even if you deny it, you are vulnerable. The difference between someone who succeeds and someone who fails is the way they handle their vulnerabilities.

Altucher is an American hedge fund manager, entrepreneur, bestselling author, and podcaster. Having founded or cofounded more than 20 companies, including Reset Inc. and StockPickr and says he failed at 17 of them.

His books ‘Choose Yourself: Be Happy’ and ‘Make Millions, Live the Dream’ have been read and re-read by aspiring entrepreneurs across the world,.

Enjoy the read and share your views on the experiences you face doing these metallic habits…

 

1.Say “No”

Saying-No

Sometimes its wiser to say No to distractions to get the results you need in the limited time in hand. “When you say “No” you have more time to read, learn, sleep, ask questions, contact friends,family, love life. Say “no” more.”

 

  1. Love

123images-of-love

Mankind would be in  such a good place if all of us give and extend that extra love to each other on daily basis.”This is the only religion. This is the only thing worth surrendering to. This is the fuel for your idea muscle.”

 

  1. Make Mistakes

Mistakes Road Sign with dramatic clouds and sky.

 

Success is never attained by the first hit.It takes a series of mistakes that turn the failures eventually to path to success.With each mistake on the road ,lesson is learnt and step forward is taken.”Mistakes are the spell books of success. Study them hard. Learnt heir incantations. When muscles tear they rebuild stronger.”

 

  1. Plant Seeds

plant-a-seed

“Basic Garden Math: 1% of the seeds turns into 50% of the flowers. Plant lots of seeds.”

Most people have a goal and they work hard following that.Well there is nothing wrong with that.But the real key is to plant many many seeds so as to get  more flowers.

What are the seeds for life?

Have gratitude for what you have and value it,Share good ideas with friends and people.Eat healthy,Exercise,read a good book. Care for your family

 

  1. Be Around People Who Are Kind To You And Love You

32738-wheatfield-sun-joy.1200w.tn

This has to develop as a habit to grow.It will take it own time and sweat.Important is to grow and improve on daily basis.”Other people will make you unhappy, unkind and unsuccessful.”

 

  1. Stand Next To The Smartest Person In the Room

smart

There is a saying that if you see your self as the smartest person in the room then you are in the wrong room.”Harold Ramis did it (Bill Murray). Steve Jobs did it (Steve Wozniak). Craig Silverstein did it (Larry Page). Kanye West did it (Jay Z). I make money only when I do this.”

Just look for the smartest person in the room,Quietly follow him without asking any questions.

 

  1. No Excuses

excuses

People generally say i do not have enough time,enough money,enough friends,enough energy to get success. Stop these excuses as they bring you no where forward.

“Blaming is draining. Complaining is draining. Explaining is draining. We don’t have enough inner plumbing for all that draining.”




  1. Don’t Be In A Rush

rush

To get to the success and desired goals in life it takes time.Its built of the moments of tiny success on the way to the bigger life goal.Enjoy every bit of it.”Every overnight success I’ve spoken to, took 10 – 20 years to get there. But only if they celebrated small successes along the way.”

  1. Solve Difficult Gratitude Problems

Gratitude

In the time of stress, anger and distress ,stop for a while and think of one good thing for which you are grateful for.extend gratitude for the good things around you what you are happy with..

“If you can find a diamond in the mud, you are going to end up with a lot of diamonds in life.”

10 Warren Buffett’s 5/25 Rule

warrenbuffet

“Make a list of 25 things to do in life. Now do the top 5. And never again think about the other 20 ever, else they will take time away from the 5 that are most important to you.”

 

  1. Write Down 10 Ideas A Day

ideas

“This actually turns into a super power. Do this for six months and see what happens.”

Coming up with great ideas requires muscle .Carry a journal with you, or make use of the notepad on your phone and, throughout the day, jot down ideas that come to mind. There is something about writing your ideas down that makes the brain feel like the idea was acknowledged.

 

  1. Follow Up

Hand writing inscription "Follow Up" with marker, concept

“I’m shy and bad at this. And lazy. Send an email the next day with an idea on the next step. I have to work on this.”

Following up might be a “nice to meet you” email. Or maybe it’s buying them a first edition of their favorite book or  movie .Or maybe it’s one of the 10,000 things in between that.




  1. Ask Questions

Group of People Asking Questions

“There are more questions than answers. Opportunities are buried in the questions, Facts can be outsourced.”

Never stop being curious and ask questions to what might lead you fulfill your thirst and lead to success.

  1. 1% A Day

little everyday

“Whatever you want to get better at: do1% more each day. 1% a day, compounded, is 3800% a year. You win.”

You have that huge goal to write a book,win the tournament,make millions or become a leader,move towards it with the ” a little a day” concept.Take baby steps every day towards the big goal.

 

  1. Right Now

now

“Regret will waste time today worrying about yesterday. And anxiety will steal energy from the future. Focus on right now.”

Every time I’ve had a problem in the future, it never came true.

Every time I’ve had a regret in the past, the regret kept me glued to the mud.

Right now you are dealt cards. No other hand before or after will help you right now.

So this is the only moment to focus on. Right now is best predictor of Right Life.

 

  1. Sleep

Sleep

“Sleep rejuvenates brain cells, heals the body, and reduces anxiety. And your brain is only active 2-5 hours a day. Sweets dreams.”

  1. Every Day, Avoid Death

Everyday_Health_logo

“You can’t get rich from a hospital bed. Or a grave. Move every day, sleep well, eat well.”

Its generally trusted that as you grow old your metabolism starts to change.This is wrong.You just start sitting more as you grow.So start moving.

  1. Do One Thing Every Day You Loved As A Kid

koriver wener photo mark klein

“This is usually the fuel that can power your life.”

I always loved to write,so i write now whenever get the time to do it.I have always loved to speak in front of public ,so i practice now public speaking and teaching. on whenever possible.

As a kid what ever we wanted to do was our internal calling  and could have been suppressed with time but is never killed.You can always bring it back if you follow your heart.

 

Wait: I thought there were 20? 

“Secret to success = give yourself permission to sometimes be wrong.”

This could be counted in as another habit not less important towards earning your millions.

Give yourself permission to not always be right. Give yourself permission to not always be liked. Give yourself permission to not always be at peace. Give yourself permission to not be a success.Then you will gradually have whatever you gave yourself permission “to not.”

 

The above habits will make you that bright sun glowing with immense power who has these worth applauding powerful qualities and habits.

To your success!!!

“When you know better, You do better” – The life impacting lesson Oprah learnt from Maya Angelou

by  Darpan Sachdeva

oprah

“When I think about my twenties and what a foolish girl I was and how I would give over my power to men who really didn’t mean me well… But now I hold no grudges against them either because I realize I’m the one who gave over the power because I didn’t know any better. And now that I know better I know I don’t have to do that again. It’s one of the most powerful lessons any of us can ever know.” ~ Oprah

All of us criticize our selves from time to time so often on the things or mistakes we have committed in our past.We try to be harsh on ourselves for not meeting that standard line of conduct or correct approach we have set up for ourselves.We blame and criticize ourselves for things we might have done in the past, failing to realize that the past is in the past. We can’t change what happened in the past but we can surely learn from it.

We certainly can do better today as compared to the past since we know better than we did in the past.This is exactly the same lesson what Oprah got from Maya Angelou as her mentor and she has explained it in the video  below so beautifully.This is so powerful. Please enjoy!!!

Whenever you feel the need to be harsh and critical on yourself, just say to yourself: “I did what I knew.. when I knew better, I did better” ~ Maya Angelou

11 Life lessons learnt from the Champ-Muhammad Ali

by  Darpan Sachdeva

Last week the famous,one and only one ,The great Muhammad Ali  sadly passed away  but the legacy, as a person what he was and would be for the times and generations to come is just unmeasurable .The loss of the  Champ of the champions is huge.

 

Down below in the video- A Very Touching Tribute To Muhammad Ali by Billy Crystal

His life as one, teaches us so much to live by but down below are the 11 prominent lessons from him what are worth learning to live a life of fullness and abundance

 

mohd Ali

 

1. Turn your .Anger into power
At the age of 12, he was found seething with anger and vowing to “whup” the person who had stolen his bicycle. Joe Martin a police officer and boxing coach advised him to take up boxing before making such a move for self defence. The rest is history. What makes you Angry? You could turn that into power

2.It’s not the action that makes a thing right or wrong, but the purpose behind the action.

We must take ‘right’ action motivated by a purpose greater than ourselves. It must be a purpose designed to help others and to make for a better world.

If our purpose is selfish, its longevity will be unsustainable, but if it is given as an act of generosity, then who knows what power is emitted by such action?

3.Focus
Even when there were distractions around, he focused on training. Focus on what matters. In High School he graduated 376th out of a class of 391. He focused on his strength. The boxing ring and not the classroom.

4.To be able to give away riches is mandatory if you wish to possess them. This is the only way that you will be truly rich.

Giving back is the only way to true richness.More you are able to put the riches for the betterment of the people around you and the society as a whole ,the more rich you become.

5.Self-belief

Always trust your self.For Muhammad Ali,even when the media didn’t believe he would beat George Foreman in the famous Rumble in the jungle fight, he still believed that he was the greatest. Believe regardless of naysayers.

6.Be Your self.

You so not have to be what anyone else wants you to be.To be me is to be free. Break all chains that seek to entangle you – whether it be parental expectations, organizational demands or societies conformities. You are unique, and in order to operate in that uniqueness you must resist conformity if you are to truly embrace your destiny.

7. Love is a net that catches hearts like a fish.

Let love do its powerful work within you. Love draws. Love attracts. Love builds. Love heals. Love captivates.Love is a  heat that will warm the hearts of generations.

8.Impossible is nothing
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact.

It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential.
Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”

9.It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.

Take time to pause a moment in order to remove any pebbles you may have picked up along the way. These can take the form of small bad habits, seeds of unforgiveness, lack of discipline, secret fears, or even devious doubts.

Pull aside, even for a moment. Address them. Deal with them. Destroy them. For many a mountaineer has fallen to their death because of an unaddressed pebble. Deal with the pebbles in your life decisively, and you will conquer many more mountain tops.

10.Hard work and dedication
Angelo Dundee Champs’s trainer said he was always first in the gym and last to leave. “He’d even come to train when he wasn’t fighting…He was like a student of boxing. He’d find out how champs trained, how much they ran, how they ate before and stuff like that.”

“His roadwork was twice as much as what he needed, his sparring twice as much as he needed. If he was gonna fight 15 rounds, he’d spar for 30,” Justin Fortune, a boxing trainer, conditioning coach said.
The fallen champion also once said, “I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.”

When asked how many sit-ups he did, he responded, “I don’t count my sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting. That is when I start counting, because then it really counts. That’s what makes you a champion.”

His daughter Laila Ali reflecting on what she learned from her father “I learned that in order to be the best, you have to work harder than the rest”.

11. Old age is just a record of one’s whole life.

What does your record look like thus far? Every day we breathe we are writing the next page that will be included in the volume called, ‘My life’.

Within its record will be scribbles, mistakes, smudges, scratchings, all mixed up with moments of great joy, eloquence, sadness, wisdom and folly. But by the time we reach the last page – may it end with the words, ‘I have lived a full and fulfilled life – read and learn from my mistakes – and for the rest of the success story contained – there went I, but by the grace of God.’
