Many people pursue success but very few actually realize success. By success, I mean becoming rich by starting a business, either on the side or full-time.

Although the Internet has made starting a business easier, success still is hard. The Internet has not taken the hard out of success. Those who succeed have what it takes to become successful. Those who fail, don’t. So, how do you know if you’re good enough to succeed? Well, you need to ask yourself a few questions:

  • Do I have the skills and knowledge that I need in order to succeed? Every business requires specific knowledge and skills.
  • Am I persistent enough to succeed? Those who succeed simply never quit.
  • Do I have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and learning? Successful people are perpetually reading to learn every day. They are voracious readers. They also listen to podcasts and audio books.
  • Am I a Cautious Risk Taker or a Reckless Risk Taker? Cautious risk takers do their homework, only take on risks they have the skills and knowledge for, ask questions, seek feedback from experts and pilot new ideas and initiatives before turning them into a business.
  • Am I single-minded in my focus? Successful people are pursuing something they are fanatically passionate about. As a result, they are think about their business 24/7. It’s on their mind even when they are on a holiday or vacation. They never stop thinking about their business.
  • Do I have success habits? Successful people forge habits that help them succeed. Here’s a list.
  • Do I have an inner circle of trusted individuals who I can lean on for honest feedback? Successful people have advisors, experts, mentors, family, friends and a team they can ask questions and get feedback from.
  • Do I have a positive mental attitude? One of the common traits among all self-made individuals is their unbridled optimism and positive attitude.
Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit, Money.com, India TV, News.com Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money, SUCCESS.com, Inc.com, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider, Credit.com, Bankrate.com and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.
