Getting rich is about getting lucky. Wealthy people are wealthy because they are lucky. They are lucky because they do certain little things every day to create the opportunity for luck to occur in their lives. Success is not an accident or random event. It’s a process successful people use to create luck. This process involves pursuing a big goal, main purpose or life dream and then learning from successful people who succeeded in pursuing a similar big goal, main purpose of life dream.
You see, successful people do certain specific things every day, sometimes for years, that cause success to happen. I am convinced that successful people are successful because of the habits they adopt, which I refer to as Rich Habits. But forget Rich Habits for a moment. I want to focus on consistency of doing certain things every day which eventually leads to success. If you want to be the best accountant in the world then find out what the best accountant in the world does every day, day in and day out, and then duplicate him or her.
What I’m really getting to is the principle of Cause and Effect. Successful people cause success by doing certain things, consistently every day, relentlessly. The successful wannabe’s job is to find out what those daily things are that successful people in their same field do. It’s not like finding a needle in a haystack. There are things called books out there. And what’s even cooler and more real time is something called podcasts. There are hundreds of podcasters out there interviewing successful people and people on the verge of success. In the age of this digital boom we’re experiencing, success is becoming real time. Individuals, pursuing success are everywhere on these podcasts and also in blogs. Art of Charm (http://theartofcharmpodcast.com), Entrepreneur on Fire http://www.entrepreneuronfire.com), World Changer Show (http://www.mattmcwilliams.com), MoneyPlan SOS (http://moneyplansos.com) and many, many others out there will allow you to lift up the skirts of the successful to see what’s underneath. Then just copy what they do, every day. The more you learn about the daily habits of successful people the more you increase the opportunity for luck to occur in your life.
