Over the past 3 plus years I’ve shared my Rich Habits research with tens of millions of people around the world, thanks to the media, podcasts and blogs. In these interviews I am always asked the same question: “What’s the #1 factor in becoming a millionaire?”
My answer is always the same: “Your daily habits are why you are rich, poor or stuck in the middle-class.”
It’s the little things you do day in and day out. It’s never any massive, explosive eureka-type event or activity that, like Cinderella, magically transforms you into a self-made millionaire. While this is not what most want to hear, I think it’s actually good news for those struggling in life financially. You see, because success is about doing certain little things every day, that means the difference between being rich and poor is incremental. It’s about making little changes in your life, not massive ones. Success doesn’t require that you climb Mount Everest, or invent the next Facebook, get a PhD or take some enormous risk, putting it all on the line in the pursuit of wealth. It requires small changes that, on a daily basis, seem inconsequential. But those inconsequential daily activities build up over time and eventually create an avalanche of success. There are only a few daily habits that separate the rich from the poor. Most people simply don’t understand that there is a real simplicity to success if you pursue it every day.
