One Day

“There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.”
– Douglas H. Everett

I confess, I am a dreamer. I’ve always been a dreamer. I can remember sitting in my Physics high school class staring out the window, daydreaming about my future. I’ve never stopped dreaming. In fact, my life has been filled with dreams about what my life would be like one day. Here’s a list of my One Day’s:

One day I will be one of the top tennis player’s in the country (1978 & 1979).

One day I will be able to afford braces to fix my teeth (1981).

One day I will be able to afford to go to college (1983).

One day I will find a beautiful, perfect girl to build my life with (1986).

One day I will become a CPA (1988).

One day I will run a half marathon (1992 & 2016).

One day I will get a graduate degree in Taxation (1992).

One day I will have my own company (2004).

One day I will find my purpose in life (2008).

One day I will write a book (2010).

One day I will have children and I will pay for their college education (2011, 2014 & 2015).

One day I will be a muscular 175 pounds (2015).

One day I will become a bestselling author (2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016).

One day I will visit Ireland (2013 and 2015).

One day I will visit Australia (2016).

One day I will golf at St. Andrew’s in Scotland (work in progress).

One day I will visit China and see the Great Wall (work in progress).

One day I will pursue my main purpose in life full-time (work in progress).

One day I will become a world-famous author (work in progress).

One day I will be a successful speaker, getting paid to travel the world (work in progress).

One day I will be be a success, admired by millions for my accomplishments (work in progress).

One day I will be able to buy my wife a beautiful house down the Jersey shore (work in progress).

One day I will be able to work anywhere I like (work in progress).

One day I will be able to vacation for a month every year (work in progress).

One day I will be like the self-made millionaires in my study. I will be debt-free and have more money than I can ever spend (work in progress).

One day I will run a non-profit dedicated to helping rescue others from poverty (In 2017 I became President of The Ashley Lauren Foundation – we help families struggling with pediatric cancer survive financially. But I still consider this a work in progress).

As you can see by the dates, I’ve achieved some of my One Day’s. Yet, at age 55 I am still dreaming.

What is your One Day?

When you realize all of your One Day’s, it make’s for one hell of a life.

Keep dreaming and never quit on your dreams.

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.
