Are You Capitalizing on the Habits of the Rich or Poor?

I recently read Tom Corley’s Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of the Wealthy. Corley looked at how the wealthy think and act. He defined wealthy as making over $160,000/yr. or having assets of over $3.2 million. He compared them to the habits of people making less than $30,000 a year.

Here are some key comparisons:

 Habit                                                                              Rich        Poor  
Get up at least 3 hours before work                           44%         3%
Maintain a To-Do list                                                    81%        19%
Say what’s on their mind                                              6%          69%
Read more than 30 minutes a day for education    88%        2%

First, pay attention to the fact that most wealthy won’t reveal what’ on their mind… what are you doing to overcome that? At 5Q Group we’ve been using the Discipline of Psychology Motivational Interviewing for the last 15 years. It works fantastic! If you’d like to see more on 5Q Group and how we use psychology you can watch a 45-minute video here.

Second, how many of these habits do you have? Invest in yourself and pick up his book.
