Rich Habits Word of the Day

Metamorphosis – To change. Tom’s metamorphosis began after he completed his five-year study on the daily habits of the rich and poor.

Rich Habits Fact of the Day

Dale Breckenridge Carnegie was an American writer and educator and the developer of famous courses in self-improvement, salesmanship, corporate training, public speaking, and interpersonal skills. Born into poverty on a farm in Missouri, he was the author of How to Win Friends and Influence People (1936), a massive bestseller that remains popular today. One of the core ideas in this book is that it is possible to change other people’s behavior by changing one’s behavior toward them.

Rich Habit Lesson of the Day

There are two schools of thought that people fall into. Each school of thought was programmed into you by your parents, teachers, mentors or your environment. One school of thought leads to poverty and the other to wealth:

  1. Poverty School of Thought: I Am Not Responsible for My Life Circumstances
  2. Wealth School of Thought: I Am Responsible for My Life Circumstances

Those who were programmed with the first school of thought believe that everything that happens to them in life is caused by other people, the economy, the wealthy, the government, Wall Street, Republicans, Democrats, employers etc. They see anyone who is successful in life as lucky, evil, exploitive, born into the right family, manipulative etc. They do not accept the fact that their circumstances in life can be changed. Life dumped on them. They were born poor and will stay poor, held back by forces outside their control. They hold on to this negative programming for dear life and belittle or ridicule anyone who dares to suggest they are the cause of their circumstances in life.

Those who were programmed with the second school of thought believe that everything that happens to them in life is their own doing. They believe they are the cause of their circumstances in life. They also believe they can change their circumstances and pursue self-help, mentors, read books, self-educate, alter their habits, work harder and smarter. To those in this school of thought, it is irrelevant what type of family they were born into, the nature of the economy, what government or politicians do and what others try to do to them.  If they were born poor they believe they believe they can become rich.They believe they are the masters of their life and can change the circumstances of their life for the better and because of this positive programming these individuals are able to rise above their poverty.

If you find yourself in the first school of thought you have been programmed to fail. You need to change your negative programming. It all starts by changing the way you think. You need to shift from your negative thinking to positive thinking. Start by giving thanks every day for what you do have. This eliminates envy, a very bad negative emotion that will keep you poor. Every day express gratitude for something good that you have in your life. Next, you need to begin a process of self-improvement that includes self-help reading and self-education. Read 20-30 minutes a day of self-help material, work-related material, education-related material. Finally begin the process of eliminating some of the Poverty Habits that are holding you back in life. This requires that you adopt just on Rich Habit a month. Rich Habits are Keystone Habits that have the unique ability to affect and eliminate Poverty Habits. Start today and continue this reprogramming effort for thirty days and you will change your thinking from Poverty Thinking to Rich Thinking and you will begin to see you life change for the better.

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.
