Act on Your Dreams and Life Will Reward You with Abundance

Human beings are the only species on earth who have the innate ability to convert thought into substance. We think intangible things and we create tangible works of art. The Brooklyn Bridge, the Eiffel Tower, and the Burj Khalifa. The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world at 2,717 feet. It is 644 feet taller than the 2nd tallest building in the world. Its height pierces the cloud barrier. It rises above the clouds. Towards heaven. What is our limit? None. Human beings are the most amazing species to inhabit the earth. We are in many respects…. godlike. 

We dream. We dream amazing dreams. We create amazing things from those dreams. We make the impossible possible from those dreams. And here’s the thing. We are all, all of us, endowed with this innate genetic ability to create something out of nothing. There is no limit to our capacity to create, except our imagination and the limiting beliefs accepted by us. 

I am in awe of my fellow man. I believe there is no limit to our capacity to do great things. And yet there are those who would have you believe that poverty is a fact of life. Don’t believe it. Poverty is a state of mind. It is a negative state of mind. It is a contrived existence foisted upon us by other humans, cursed with limiting beliefs.

It was not intended for humans to be poor, to struggle financially or to live a life of quiet desperation. We exist to be great, to achieve great things. It is within our genetic makeup to create, to produce, to innovate and to learn from our mistakes. We were intended to live a life of abundance and to achieve happiness. Each one of us was born with this unusual ability to create. This mandates that we dream big dreams. 

Life is a funny thing. When we pursue our dreams, life places obstacles in our way and we say, why? Life makes our path seemingly impassible and we ask, why? Life puts our backs against the wall and we scream, why? Here’s my answer to the why. Life forces all dreamers to persist. Persistence sharpens us. It enables us to overcome future obstacles more easily. Life isn’t working against us – it’s working for us. Every obstacle is an education. Every obstacle forces us to evolve. Every obstacle makes us more perfect.

As many of you already know, I am on a mission to end poverty. I believe poverty to be a human deficiency. No one has to be poor. Poverty is manmade. There is a creative genus inside each one of us. Each one of us has been endowed with the godlike creative genius to solve all the world’s problems. It is a gift bestowed upon all. Rich or poor. Healthy or disabled. We all posses this endowment. I dream of a world where no individual is enslaved by the belief that we are limited in any way. We are not. I created the Rich Habits so all humans could walk in the footsteps of other successful humans. I created the Rich Habits so all could learn from the successful who came before us. We live in the most amazing country the world has ever known. The American Dream is not just a dream for Americans. It is a dream for all of mankind. It screams to the world, we can! We all can!

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.
