A Common Trait Among Toxic Relationships


Tom Corley boats - crop

It’s hard to weed out 100% of your toxic relationships.

Family members are the most common of the toxic relationships that infect our lives. Childhood friendships are another source of toxic relationships that infect our lives.

One of the Poor Habits prevalent among toxic relationships is financial dependence. Toxic people with this Poor Habit frequently have some financial emergency that they need bail out money for. If you allow them to remain part of your inner circle, these toxic relationships will invariably hit you up for money.

If you’re married, trying to raise a family and working hard to forge a successful life, these financial bail out requests will negatively impact your marriage and your life. And that is one of the fall outs of having toxic relationships – they bring stress to your life, stress to the lives of your immediate family and they take you off your mission – to build a successful life.

As hard as it is to do, you must weed toxic relationships out of your life. If you don’t, they will negatively affect your life, undermine your marriage and drag you and your immediate family down with them.

Much of life is a series of tough choices. Choosing to eliminate toxic relationships from your life is one such choice. It’s not easy weeding out certain relationships, but it is necessary if you want to be the architect of your ideal, perfect life. Toxic relationships will throw a wrench into your plans and set you back financially, unless you make the right, tough choice and remove them from your life.

But don’t fret too much. Toxic relationships will always find someone else to bail them out financially – some other patsy who is not tuned into this financial dependence Poor Habit. Because you’re reading this, you are tuned in. And because you’re tuned in, you will make the right choice – to cut them out of your life.

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.
