I just had to share this clip from the Wall Street Journal. I was surprised and happy to see that I’ve been on the right path when I first asked myself, “Do you want to be rich?”
Do YOU want to be Rich?
Your daily habits will determine if you truly want to be rich.
Thomas Corley, the author of Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits Of Wealthy Individuals spent five years studying the lives of both rich people and poor people. Corley defines American Rich and Poor as follows:
- Rich = an annual income of $160,000 or more and a liquid net worth of $3.2 million or more.
- Poor = an annual income of $35,000 or less and a liquid net worth of $5,000 or less
In his book, Corley points out, “These habits are like snowflakes — they build up, and then you have an avalanche of success.”
Similar the to video above, “rich habits” mean the tendencies of those who fit in the group. As Corley explains, all of us have some rich habits. Unfortunately, even more Americans have poverty habits.
Everyone has some rich habits and some poverty habits. “The key is to get more than 50% to be rich habits. – Thomas Corley
Do you want to be rich – Stop Complaining
One of the biggest hindrances holding you back is your complaining. This is the first habit to concentrate on if you are not yet rich. Focus on gratitude while your work your job.
While you’re still working your job, it’s a good idea to pick up Corley’s book. Even better, learn 10 key principles to get promoted and get a raise by reading Stop Crying and Get Paid 2nd edition.
