Rich Habits To Become Financially Successful by lordm(m): 2:22pm On May 02, 2017
1. Live within your means.

Wealthy people avoid overspending by paying their future selves first.
2. Don’t gamble.
Nairabet, surebet etc

3. Read inspirational books often.
4. Forget the boob tube and spend less time surfing the internet.

How much of your valuable time do you lose parked in front of a screen? Two-thirds of wealthy people watch less than an hour of TV a day and almost that many—63 percent—spend less than an hour a day on the internet unless it is job-related.

5.Control your emotions.[/b]
Not every thought needs to come out of your mouth. Not every emotion needs to be expressed. When you say whatever is on your mind, you risk hurting others. Loose lips are a habit for 69 percent of those who struggle financially.

6.[b]Network and volunteer regularly.

You’ll build valuable relationships that can result in more customers or clients, or help you land a better job if you spend time pressing the flesh and giving back in your community.

7.Go above and beyond in work and business.
Unsuccessful people have “it’s not in my job description” syndrome. Consequently, they are never given more responsibility, and their wages grow very little from year to year—if they keep their jobs at all.

8. Set goals, not wishes.
You cannot control the outcome of a wish, but you can control the outcome of a goal.

Every year, 70 percent of the wealthy pursue at least one major goal. Only 3 percent of those struggling to make ends meet do this.

9. Avoid procrastination.

10. Talk less and listen more.

11. Avoid toxic people.
We are only as successful as the people we spend the most time with.

12. Don’t give up.
Those who are successful in life have three things in common: focus, persistence and patience. They simply do not quit chasing their big goals. Those who struggle financially stop short.

13. Set aside the self-limiting beliefs holding you back.

To me, this is very important. Get rid of your fear by facing it.

14. Eliminate “bad luck” from your vocabulary.

15. Know your main purpose.
It’s the last Rich Habit, but it might be the most important. Those people who pursue a dream or a main purpose in life are by far the wealthiest and happiest among us. Because they love what they do for a living, they are happy to devote more hours each day driving toward their purpose.

THanks for reading.
