Lark Dean Galley shares 10 Habits of the Rich

1. Rich people* focus on their goals every day.
Wealthy people not only set annual and monthly goals, but the majority of them put their goals into writing.

2. Rich people know what needs to be done today.
Wealthy people not only keep a to-do-list, but a majority of them accomplish 70% or more of their tasks each day.

3. Rich people average less than one hour of TV viewing per day.
The wealthy choose to use their time pursuing more productive activities.

4. Rich people love to read nonfiction.
The wealthy spend a majority of their reading time on self-improvement books averaging at least 30 minutes a day learning how to improve their lives.

5. Rich people listen to audio books.
A majority of wealthy people listen to audio books during their commute to work.

6. Rich people believe their health influences their success. 
Wealthy people know that being healthy means fewer sick days which in turn means more productivity and more money.

7. Rich people take care of their smiles.
The wealthy say they floss every day.

8. Rich people feel relationships are critical to their financial success. 
The wealthy put a lot of effort into maintaining their relationships and make it a habit to reach out regularly to those on their contact list.

9. Rich people believe they – not fate – control their future. 
A lot of wealthy people weren’t always wealthy, but they believed they could do anything – and they did!

10. Rich people are willing to take risks.
The wealthy are more apt to admit they’ve failed at least once.  They are often business owners who started their own business and learned from the school of hard knocks.

Everyone has some “rich habits” and some “poverty habits”. The key to moving over to the wealthy side is to have more than 50% of the “rich habits”. Check the list above and determine your percentage. Then decide what one item you’ll focus on for the next month to make that “rich habit” yours!

* Rich people are defined as having an annual income of $160,000 or more and a liquid net worth of $3.2 million or more.
