Tip o’ the Morning to Ya – Reprogram Your Mind for Success

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.
