20 Rich People Habits You Can Easily Get

20 Rich People Habits You Can Easily Get


Ah, if only there was some magical button
you could push and – cha-ching! – you’re rich! Well, I guess I should quit waiting for the
fast track to a big bank account and instead, see what the super wealthy and successful
can teach me through their life-long habits. Starting with… #1. Written plans
There’s something about writing down your to-do list that seems to equal a homerun. But you have to be specific about it! No broad objectives here – only hard numbers,
such as earning X amount by Y time through Z activities. And when you see it on paper, you can visualize
it that much better! #2. Reading books
Another great way to stimulate the ol’ thinker is with books. They develop your vocabulary, imagination,
and even problem-solving skills. It can be any genre you like, both fiction
and non-fiction. Although, for most highly successful people,
education and self-development take priority over entertainment. But the point is: read a LOT. Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Oprah Winfrey – all
avid readers. #3. Reading People
Knowing a thing or two about body language can really set you up for success. And this goes both ways: reading other people
just by looking at them and knowing how to use your own body language. Rich people know how to earn someone’s trust,
convince others, and avoid being manipulated. They stand up straight, maintain eye contact,
and overall ooze confidence. #4. Keeping Style Simple
Hey, dressing for success doesn’t necessarily mean donning a suit and tie! Just look at Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs
– both big fans of wearing pretty much the same thing every single day. Facebook’s founder says that wearing the
same outfit means he doesn’t need to waste time on making a meaningless decision. That way, he can focus his brainpower on running
a $140-billion company! #5. Using Public Transport
It’s become quite common to see famous faces taking the subway or riding a bike to and
from work. What can I say? Apart from saving their own money on transportation
(and, yes, a lot of them pinch pennies to SUCH an extent, but I’ll get into that later
on!), they also give a vivid example to others on how to keep the environment safe. So, who needs a private jet when you can take
the bus! (Ok, well, I could really use a private jet,
but who’s asking?) #6. Making Birthday Calls
Seems random, I know, but there’s a statistic out there that 80% of wealthy people call
loved ones on their birthday. The same can only be said about 11% of people
who struggle financially. This all has to do with staying close to friends
and family, which could indirectly help your wallet out! I mean, if you have a support network of people
you care about, then you’re generally a happier person. And happy people tend to stay motivated and
do better at work! #7. Choosing Friends Wisely
Socializing with success-oriented individuals puts you in the right mindset, keeps you constantly
striving to do better, and, let’s face it, you’ll have more in common with them! You can actively discuss similar topics, get
some useful advice, and show genuine interest in what your friends and acquaintances have
to say. Birds of a feather, right? #8. Listening More, Talking Less
While you’re chatting it up with your successful friends, maybe focus more on those last two
points (ya know, getting advice and listening with interest). In general, rich people spend 5 minutes listening
for each minute they speak. Hey, do you do most of the speaking or listening
in a conversation? Let me know down below! #9. Meditating
So, you’ve got a to-do list to tackle and you’re taking crowded public transport every
day, so, yeah, I’m sure you need something to relax! Wealthy people gravitate more toward meditation
and yoga, and there’s a reason why. Stress blocks your brain, and you’ll need
a clear sharp mind if you’re wanting to follow in the footsteps of the most successful
people out there. Meditation can help clear up that mental fog! #10. Leading a Healthy Lifestyle
I know, you really don’t want diet and exercise to be on this list, but, hey, I’m just the
messenger! The successful folk eat less junk food and
try to stay pretty active. Jogging, swimming, playing tennis, or simple
gym workouts are among the most popular fitness activities among the wealthy. And they’re busy people, so just 30 minutes
of some cardio activity a day will do it! There are all kinds of studies out there showing
that a healthy body means more energy, a better mood, and beefed-up brainpower. But for now, let’s move on to… #11. Spending Wisely
Actually, I’ll just be blunt: rich people can be pretty frugal! I’m talking “Save every penny Scrooge
McDuck” style! For example, it’s normal for a millionaire
to purchase things on sale or use different discount- and cash-back programs. Like them, you should always know exactly
how much money you have, how much you’re able to spend and – the most important – which
goods and services it’s possible to save on. Because even though somebody with millions
could easily throw down boatloads of cash for a pair of designer jeans, why not wait
until they’re discounted, or, better yet, not even go designer? 12. Saying “No”
Sure, we all want nice things, but you just have to know how to hold yourself back. But it doesn’t end there. Truly successful people can say “no” in
any situation that calls for it. First of all, they don’t overstretch themselves
and agree to come running at anybody’s need because, well, time is money and their time
comes with a hefty price tag! Also, they can recognize when, say, an idea
or proposition isn’t going to lead to financial or professional gain. You just have to know the options and realize
that it’s ok to politely refuse the bad ones! #13. Long Lunches
Yes, this might sound opposite to the concept of time is money, but wealthy people usually
take an hour or more for lunch. It’s because the rich understand that it’s
better to work smarter rather than harder. A long, relaxing midday lunch allows you to
refresh yourself and return to work ready to put in much more productive energy! #14. Taking Risks
They understand that risks lead to rewards, so they’re more willing to go out on a limb—because
that’s where the sweetest fruit is! But (!) they generally take calculated risks,
not reckless ones. No, they’re not afraid of failure, but they
do know how to avoid it and minimize the fallout if a certain risk didn’t produce the rewards
they were expecting. #15. Giving Back
Charity and philanthropy are hallmarks of the wealthy. Nelson Rockefeller, Andrew Carnegie, Bill
Gates – that’s just a drop in the bucket of the most affluent people who share their
riches with those who need it most. Giving back to the community through donation
and volunteering is a key characteristic here. #16. Controlling Emotions
There’s a general assumption that the wealthy can afford to be brutally honest, lash out,
or just treat people however they want. But the truly successful understand that good
relationships are a crucial foundation for financial well-being. Hurting or offending people can obviously
sever those ties. #17. Having a Goal
You’d think wealthy people just have it made, and they can relax, sit back, and count
their millions and billions. But, no, they always have some goal they’re
focused on and working towards. Everything they do is done with this primary
objective in mind. Intense concentration like this is what allows
the wealthy to accomplish what others only dream about. #18. Prioritizing Tasks
The first thing Elon Musk does in the morning is check and reply to emails, although, I’d
recommend getting some breakfast in your belly first! But the main thing here is to start your day
by getting the necessary stuff out of the way. Ok, let’s say your job doesn’t require
a lot of emailing. At least prioritize your daily to-do list
by what’s urgent and important, not urgent but still very important, and finally urgent
but not so necessary. #19. Staying Productive
Remember your parents always saying “money doesn’t grow on trees”? Well, it’s true – you’ve gotta do something
to earn it! And, sadly, spending hours scrolling through
social media, getting lost in yet another rabbit hole of cute animal videos, or zoning
out in front of the TV isn’t going to do a single thing to help you out there. Wealthy people avoid that stuff and try to
stay productive for a reason: it bears good fruit! So, yeah, I guess money does grow on a sort
of proverbial tree of productivity, dedication, and smart choices! #20. Not Rushing to Retire
It’s not that you’re going to work till 90 because you need to make more money. The idea here is that you won’t ever retire
because you don’t want to! Seems like a weird thought, but if you’re
doing what you love, you won’t ever want to stop. So, yes, if you can make a living from your
passion, then you’re without a doubt on the road to personal (and likely financial)
success! So what do you think? Did any of this light a fire under you somehow? Tell me all about it in the comments below. Hey, if you learned something new today that

Not going to lie I don’t get to check my emails most of the time because of not having data or if my phone decides to offload the app because of the lack of storage that my phone has but other than that, I’m quite proud of myself that I do a lot of the stuff in this list.
