People Respond Positively to Positivity

One of the many secrets to success I found in my Rich Habits research was that positivity increases your chances to become rich and successful.

I have many studies in my Study Binder on Positivity. Here are some highlights regarding positivity:

  • People want to develop relationships with positive, upbeat people.
  • When you are in business, referrals come much easier to you if you possess a positive mindset.
  • Positivity puts others at ease, relaxes them, soothes them.
  • Positivity will inspire and motivate those who work for you – you get the best out of your employees.
  • Positivity is a competitive advantage – customers, clients, patients will be reluctant to leave you for the competition.
  • Positivity brings out the best in you.
  • Positivity improves all of your relationships.
  • Positivity infects others like a virus. One individual’s positivity can alter the mindset of a person with a negative mindset. Caveat: one individual’s negative mindset can alter the mindset of a positive person.
  • People are more eager to follow positive people.
  • People will run through walls for a positive leader or supervisor.
  • Organizations with an upbeat, positive environment have many advantages: longer-term employees, higher creativity, stronger customer-base, better communication of ideas & solutions within the organization, higher sales and profits, more productivity, better able to overcome adversity and experience constant growth.
  • Positive people stay married longer.
  • Positive people suffer less from chronic stress – they have less anxiety.
  • Positive people are much better at dealing with emergencies, unexpected consequences and other short-term stress events.
  • Positive people are healthier – they have stronger immune systems.
  • Positive people have longer telomeres, which translates into fewer diseases and a longer lifespan.
  • Positive people exercise more frequently, making them healthier and more fit.
  • Positive people are more open-minded and, thus, able to grow their IQ and knowledge-base, increasing their intelligence throughout their lives.
  • Positive people are less judgmental of others which endears them to others.
  • Positive people are not stuck in ideology and are thus more flexible in understanding the views of others, which makes others like them more and want to deal with them more.
  • Positive people have more friends and a larger social network.
  • Positive people are more creative.
  • Positive people are better able to see solutions to problems, overcome obstacles and persevere in the face of adversity.
  • Positive people make more money and accumulate more wealth during their lifetimes.

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.
