Every person wants to be rich enough to buy things which they wish for and having a life without any worries.
But what if your own habits are the reason behind your poor condition?
Researcher Tom Corley is interested in the differences between the habits of rich people and those who don’t have much money. He studied both groups for 5 years and made interesting conclusions.
Here are 10 things you should stop doing if you want to get rich and grow wealth. It will surely help you to make important decisions in your life.
1. Meeting new people
Rich people like to meet new people. 68% of wealthy people said that they like meeting someone new and only 11% of poor people said the same.
2. Blaming fate
Rich people think that they determine their life path themselves. And 90% of poor people blame fate for their misfortunes and incidents which they can’t control. Some people even invest money in lottery tickets instead of their own education.
3. Hating your job
Successful people love their job and they love what they do but poor people hate their job and it’s quite hard to increase your income with this attitude.
4. Ignoring your health
Wealthy people don’t ignore their health and make sure to have a healthy lifestyle, 76% of successful people do physical exercises 4 times a week. Among those who have a low income, only 13% see a connection between good health and success.
5. You do not take the risk
More than 50% of the rich people who took part in the experiment agreed to take the same risk. And only 6% of poor people agreed to take a risk to improve their financial situation.
6. You do not read a lot
Dostoyevsky once said. 88% of rich people agree with the writer. They read books about self-development, professional materials, and historical literature for at least 30 minutes a day. Only 2% of poor people devote this much time to reading.
7. Wake up late
Tom Corley woke up at least 3 hours before the start of their working day, which is at about 5 a.m. They spend the time in the morning planning the things they need to do, working on their personal projects (if they work for big companies), and doing sports.
89% of wealthy people sleep from 7 to 8 hours a night, and they go to sleep at the recommended time: between 9 and 10 p.m.
8. Communicate with toxic people
Successful people communicate with positive people who inspire them to do something. While people who are not successful spend their time in gossiping or complaining about their lives.
9. Spend more than you earn
Most of the poor people spend more than they earn even though they can’t afford them and don’t really need them. Wealthy people usually stick to this system of income distribution.
10. Watch reality shows
Among people who are not rich, 78% love shows where viewers can watch the details of someone else’s private life. Among rich people, only about 6% watch reality shows. The same goes for the internet, successful people spend less than an hour surfing the net unless it has something to do with work.
After Tom Corley studied the habits of rich people, he came to a conclusion: they are successful because they first did something they truly liked and then turned it into a source of income.
