Your Inner Demons Seal Your Fate

The famous story of the mild-mannered Dr. Jekyll and the demonic Mr. Hyde ends with the death of both. Mr. Hyde became Dr. Jekyll’s undoing at the end.

There are many who have Mr. Hyde inside them, derailing them from living a healthy, happy and successful life. Negativity is not just an impediment for a good life, it is a recipe for a failed life.

A study by Eric Loucks, an assistant professor of epidemiology at Brown University, found that people with a positive outlook live healthier and live longer. They also found that negativity causes stress which accelerates aging. In a related study by Elissa Epel, University of California, she found that those who practice positivity through meditation live longer, healthier lives.

The ability to shut down the Mr. Hyde inside you not only affects your health and longevity, it also plays a critical role in achieving success in life. Negative people get in their own way, preventing them from realizing their full potential in life. We all have a little Mr. Hyde inside us. The key is to be mindful when Mr. Hyde starts to rear his ugly head. Anger, depression, sadness, envy and jealousy, when left unchecked and not countered, are destructive forces that shackle many people to a life of poverty.

If you want to be healthy, happy, live a long life, be rich, or be successful, it may come down to the simple daily habit of practicing positivity. Gratefulness is the gateway to a positive mental outlook. So, start your day by expressing gratitude. Five minutes of daily meditation is another daily habit that creates a positive mental outlook. When you develop the daily habit of being positive, Mr. Hyde runs away. Keep your inner Mr. Hyde on the run every day. Your health and your future success depends on it.

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,, India TV, 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,,, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider,, 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.
