Rich Habits Lesson of the Day

Human beings are all after one thing…..happiness. We all strive to be happy. Every single one of us, without exception. Happiness is the mosts powerful and influential of all of the positive emotions. It’s the grand daddy of positive emotions.  The desire for happiness has been hardwired into our subconscious since the beginning of time. Why? Those who are happy are healthier; their immune systems are stronger and they are better able to fight off cancer, disease, and infections. Those who are happy have better relationships. They have loving, caring families and friends who desire to spend time with one another every chance they get. Those who are happy make more money. Happiness motivates and drives us. It shows up on the job in the form of better quality, more creative problem solving and once again, stronger relationships. The desire to be happy makes humans do some incredible things, such as Mother Teresa’s efforts to help the world’s poor.

Sadness is the he opposite of happiness. And it is an equally powerful emotion, in a very negative way. Sadness impairs our immune system and, thus, our overall health. Sadness destroys relationships. People go out of their way to avoid sad people. Those who are sad make less money because they have little to no drive. Their productivity suffers and the quality of their work product suffers. They lose the ability to create; a fundamental human trait. They accomplish very little in life as a result.

The good news is that happiness and sadness are daily habits. There are things you can do to make a daily habit of happiness. The Rich Habits Daily Mind Routine is a very useful tool. This Mind Routine includes five core things:

  1. Twice a day daily meditation for 5-15 minutes each time
  2. Twice a day expressing sincere, emotionalized gratitude for at least one thing in your life
  3. Twice a day expressing sincere, emotionalized love for at least one person in your life
  4. Daily affirmations tied to specific goals you are currently pursuing
  5. Reading twice a day Future Mirror letters to yourself. These are letters you write to yourself about the future you. They can be two years or more into the future. These letters depict the ideal you in your ideal life.

One last thing. Looking into the past attracts sadness. Looking into the future attracts happiness. Avoid the habit of remenissing about the past and create the habit of feeling hopeful about the future. This is another reason why goals are so important. Goals act like a shield against sadness.

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, Money.com, India TV, News.com 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, SUCCESS.com, Inc.com, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider, Credit.com, Bankrate.com 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.
