Are the rich and wealthy people just good with money, or is there a deeper brilliance to their success?
Most people including myself would agree that there are certain choices and daily habits that are targeted towards wealth.
The Habits of Wealthy People – 10 Choice Lessons
This following list started out with two American wealth gurus having their own lists for things that the rich do which poor people do not. These two wealthy gurus combined their ideas into one excellent list.
What took place is that wealth guru Tom Corley wrote a list of 10 rich habits that will make you rich, followed by 18 poverty habits that are keeping you poor.
Then along came another wealth guru, Dave Ramsey, who created his own list of 5 simple habits of the wealthy. You can read his list here.
This following list has been compiled of 10 things rich people do and poor people don’t. And the funny thing is… these routines and habits have nothing to do with money.
1. The Wealthy Eat Right
To begin… Tom Corley did his own research to find habits of rich people vs. poor people – to find that 70% of wealthy people eat less than 300 junk-food calories each day. While 97% of poor people eat more than 300 junk-food calories per day.
The lesson to be learned? Your body is a temple… treat it as such!
2. They Stay in Shape – They Keep FIT!
We all know that a healthy body usually means a healthy and clear mind. According to research, 76% of wealthy Americans exercise at least 4 days a week, when only 23% of poor people do.
3. The Wealthy Set Goals for Themselves
Setting goals for yourself starts with a strong desire. It is stated that at least 80% of the wealthy focus on accomplishing a single goal. It is also stated that the wealthy write their goals down in a location to be seen which is 4 times greater than the poor.
Only 12% of the poor people have a goal written down.
4. The Wealthy Do Not Disclose ALL
Blurting out ever thought or idea is not going to get you very far in the business world. According to Corley, only 11.6% of the wealthy will blurt out what’s on their mind, compared to a whopping 69% of the poor.
There is nothing wrong with keeping thoughts and ideas to yourself. People will flock to you when they see your success. You will look like a super hero and they will want to know your little known secrets to wealth.
5. The Wealthy Keep a To-Do List – They Stay Organized
We’ve all heard the saying ‘Spinning Your Wheels’. Being organized by keeping a to-do list is one of the habits of the wealthy that may seem too simple to be true.
Research shows that 81% of the wealthy keep a to-do list, while only 19% of the poor will.
