While money doesn’t indeed buy happiness, it sure makes things easier in life. And if your goal is to become richer, then you need to cut down on some certain mistakes. According to researcher Tom Corley, who has studied rich and less rich people for five years, there are a few things you shouldn’t do if you want to become richer. Check them out!
Not expanding your social circle
If your goal is to become richer then you need to meet new people who share the same values and ideas as you. According to a study, about 68% of people who are really rich enjoy meeting new people. The key here is first impressions because they tell a lot about a person. But this shouldn’t be a problem because rich people are confident and know what they want.
Blaming luck and fate
When it comes to money and your future you can’t blame luck and fate because they have nothing to do with it. The path to success is simply driven by your passion and goals. According to a study, 90% of the less wealthy people tent to blame it all on fate and bad luck for their misfortunes.
Working a job you hate
If you really love your job than you are going to produce great work. 85% of people who enjoy their work are successful. If you are unhappy about your job then find something you enjoy before it’s too late.
Ignoring your health
Usually wealthy people tend to be very healthy and that’s because they devote a lot of time to their health. 76% of wealthy people exercise about four times a week and have a balanced diet where they tend to eliminate bad habits. In this way they leave more room for positiveness.
Stop playing it safe
Taking risks in the business world is a daily part of life so in the most cases, risks come with high rewards. It might not always work out but if you don’t take risks than you’ll never move on. According to a research only 6% of less wealthy people took a financial risk and 50% of wealthy individuals took a risk.
Stop avoiding books
Yeah sure internet is everything but reading a book gets your mind thinking. It also allows you to put different things in perspective without having someone giving you an opinion you don’t want.
Wealthy people start their day early in the morning. They know they have only 24 hours in the day and they need to plan things in time. Usually they spend time working on personal projects before going to work and even though you think they don’t get much sleep, they make sure to get the recommended 7-8 hours of sleep.
Stop communicating with negative people
Do you really know why wealthy people are so successful? It’s because they surround themselves with positive people. If you do the opposite, then you’re not going to feel inspired to work anymore. Avoid the negativity in your life.
