When you’re off you know it. You feel tired, down, and you get sick too often. You might also feel lethargic, lacking in motivation or you might even suffer from depression. These are very often symptoms of something big that is wrong with your body. When you’re not feeling right too often, it’s your body’s way of telling you that you have malfunctioning mitochondria.

Mitochondria are ancient bacteria that reside in every cell in the human body. Billions of years ago this bacteria hitched a ride inside our cells. It’s purpose is to produce ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), the energy that powers every cell within our bodies. The average human cell has between 1,000 – 2,000 mitochondria inside each cell. When that mitochondria is functioning inefficiently you feel like crap all the time. You’re unable to focus and think clearly, causing brain fog.

What’s causing your mitochondria to malfunction?

  • You’re not getting enough oxygen – You don’t exercise aerobically every day and your stores of oxygen are low. Mitochondria uses oxygen to create ATP. When you are not getting enough oxygen, your mitochondria are not producing enough ATP to power your body.
  • You’re microbiota inside your large intestine is unhealthy – Eating too many carbohydrates and not enough fibrous vegetables can kill good microbiota. If just about every meal you eat lacks vegetables, you are literally starving the good microbiota inside your gut. This impairs your immune system, making you sick too often and could actually lead to cancer, diabetes, heart disease and many other ailments.
  • You’re not getting enough sleep – During sleep, your brain does a lot of janitorial work. It recharges your brain cells and clears away the junk inside those brain cells (free radicals and waste produced by brain cells. During sleep, the brain sends out a swat team of immunological cells that rids the brain of unhealthy, dying or malfunctioning brain cells. You need at least four sleep cycles every night in order for your brain to perform maintenance. Each sleep cycle lasts about 90 minutes, so you need a minimum of six hours of sleep every night. Five sleep cycles, or 7.5 hours of sleep a night is optimal.

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.
