Blowing in the Wind

If you look around you will see there are only a handful of self-made millionaires for every hundred people. And those self-made millionaires seem to be in perpetual motion. They always seem to be coming and going from somewhere: seminars, speaking engagements, meetings, training, events, etc. And you’ll also notice they’re usually not alone. They seem to always have people orbiting around them: members of their team, business associates, advisors, etc. Their motion is the byproduct of the pursuit of a plan. These self-made millionaires are perpetually in motion, along with members of their team, because they are pursuing some dream. Their motion is the byproduct of pursuing their life plan.

One of the trademarks of unsuccessful people is that they have no plan and no direction in life. They are literally like leaves blowing in the wind on a fall day. When you lack direction, when you don’t have a plan you are following, your default plan becomes failure.

Having a plan means pursuing your dreams and the goals behind each one of those dreams. Find some time today to script out your ideal future life. Bullet point each one of the dreams that are in your script. Then sleep on it. Your old brain (your subconscious) will immediately go to work, while you sleep, trying to help you get from point A (where you are now) to point B (your ideal future life). Keep reading your script every night, right before you go to sleep. Your old brain will start to communicate with your new brain (your conscious). This communication will come to you in the form of intuition. Through intuition or gut feelings, your old brain will begin feeding you with ideas and solutions. The more you focus on your ideal future life, the more ideas and solutions you’ll be fed. These ideas and solutions are the actions you will need to take in order to realize your dreams. These actions represent the goals you will need to achieve in order to make each one of your dreams a reality.

It’s time to stop blowing in the wind and create your life’s plan. Script your ideal future life today and your plan will begin to unfold before your very eyes.

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,, India TV, 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,,, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider,, 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.
