Do you want to become rich? In today’s show we’re going to look at the habits you’re going to have to form to become richer, more successful, and get further in life. 

This podcast is part of a series I’ve been doing with and in this episode, Mark and Sally ask me some of the same questions that you’re probably also been thinking about with regards to what makes the rich different, apart from the obvious – they have more money. 

Self-made millionaires exhibit some of these Rich Habits:

They plan their future - set daily, weekly, monthly and long-term goals

Making money is one thing, but creating wealth is an entirely different thing.

They wake up early and plan their days

 For many, their most productive hour is early in the morning before all the interruptions start

They exercise and remain physically fit

You need to be fit emotionally and physically to fire on all pistons.

They’re good savers – the spend less than they earn, save the difference and invest

They put together a financial plan, they budget, they focus on increasing their incomes and they automate their savings 

They get an early start with wealth building and allow compounding to work in their favour.

They understand the importance of delayed gratification

There's a mindset that's prevalent these days. It's one of instant gratification in an on-demand society that looks for quick results with very little effort. The rich know that life doesn't work that way. You need to put in the sweat equity if you're looking to gain serious results

They educate themselves, they’re always learning

They read daily for education – not entertainment

They upgrade their skills and knowledge to make themselves more valuable

They hang around the right people

You are the average of the 5 people you hang around the most

There’s a saying: “Your network is your net worth.” In other words, if you lie down with dogs, you'll come up with fleas.

They seek advice and have mentors – prepared to pay for it

Be very careful selecting your mentors – there are many life coaches, business coaches and mentors out there who haven’t achieved much in their own lives and while they are well many, often caring people – but they can’t teach you something that they haven’t really achieved themselves. Find someone who has already achieved what you want to achieve.

They have earned efficient time management 

Everyone in this world has the same amount of time. The 24 hours of each day is life's greatest equalizer. But it’s what you do with your day that will make a difference to how productive you are, how much value you add and how much money you make.

They don’t gamble

The poor see gambling as their easy way out of the rat race. The Rich know gambling is a tax for people who can’t do math.

They are generous – give to charity

The rich believe that if you get to the top you have to send the lift down to bring others up.

Some of our favourite quotes from the show:

“Your outside world is really a reflection of what’s going on inside.” – Michael Yardney

“If you eat like healthy people eat and you exercise like healthy people exercise and you think like healthy people think, you’re going to change your body shape and your weight and your health, and much the same with successful people.” – Michael Yardney

“It’s never too late, but it takes a long time to create wealth, particularly in today’s low interest rate, low wages, low return environment.” – Michael Yardney
