“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle
Our habits dictate whether we will be rich, poor or middle-class. The reason so many consider success a great mystery, and use the phrase “the secret to success”, is because the cause of success is still a secret to so many. Even the wealthy in my study did not realize that it was their habits that were responsible for their success. Some of the wealthy thought it was their education, their hard work ethic, luck, being in a good industry, making wise decisions etc. Those things are the effect of having good habits, not the cause of success. Success was a secret even to the wealthy. I’m doing my best to let the secret out of the bag.
