5 millionaire habits. And we are talking about the men and women who made their fortune from the scratch. 233 of them claim that these 5 secret habits made it all possible. One simply has to take this seriously because you don’t hear millionaires talking nonsenses or acting stupid.
According to these 233 individuals, it all starts with defining and understanding your own dreams and vision.
Clear Vision of Life
Everybody dreams and it is this process which acts as a trigger. However, it’s not enough to daydream. One has to catalyze that dream into a series of actions.
In order to do that, a person has to define where one sees self in 5, 10, 15 and 20 years. And everything has to fit in less than 500 words on a single sheet of paper. It may not look like that when you start writing and you shouldn’t even try to limit yourself.
Put everything down and crystalize later. Trim to the bone structure and focus on realism.
Once you trim it, answer a few questions:
- Should I do that and that?
- Am I capable of doing that and that?
- If not, can I develop and progress?
The point is to make a habit of doing mental imagery for at least 15 minutes every day and keep updating your “path” to the goal.
And one of the first things you will need on your journey, are auxiliary income sources.
Multiple Income Sources
What separates these 233 from the majority is the fact that they didn’t limit themselves to one single income source which could mean disaster if it somehow collapses.
It sounds easy but one has to learn and develop in more than one segment of life in order to learn and effectively use additional skills and resources.
Where’s the habit in all of this?
What’s the first thing you do on the internet in the morning? Are you doing that same thing every morning, almost automatically? If so, then it’s the habit.
Now it’s just the matter of focusing on the things that can help you build an additional source of income and not on the nonsense or useless gossips – if you don’t know how to capitalize on them. In other words, a millionaire mind will try to see the profit everywhere he looks. It happens automatically.
That leads us to a third important habit.
Make Every Effort to Manage Time
How many hours do you spend watching TV or surfing the net? Do you love group sports to the point that you have a habit of spending more than two hours every day throwing balls or swimming?
Not that there is something universally wrong with sports, recreation, and relaxation, but if you are about to succeed, you need to learn how to control the time. Because time is a valuable asset.
You need to participate in activities that have the potential to lead you to your dreams. That means that you must adjust your time schedule if you’re in a pursuit of long-term success. In other words, something has to go to make time for things that matter.
And one of the most useful ways to spend some of the time is with a mentor.
We All Need Mentorship
All 233 millionaires admit that without the guidance and mentors, it is highly unlikely that they would be able to reach the level of success they have. Parents, good teachers, business mentors, and good readings all count.
Finding a great mentor who will guide you and point out possible errors and the ways to avoid them is crucial. It’s the way we live as a species. We learn from the others who experienced and who know.
And they know only because they are persistent and never give up on their dreams.
Determination and Perseverance
Probably the hardest thing to do is to stay focused and determined for a long period of time. People simply start to lose interest and eventually shift their focus to something entirely different.
Consequently, they fail.
Once you set your mind on something, the only way to do it and to succeed in it is to keep it pushing and the best way to deal with the acute and chronic lack of perseverance is symbolism.
You need something that you can see and feel which has the power to occasionally remind you why are you doing what you’re doing. Something that will keep reminding you of the ultimate goal!
Remember, if they could do it, so can you. After all, they are all self-made millionaires. Just do what they are doing. Start by implementing these 5 critical habits.
