You can start your journey to join their ranks right here. Habits Of The Filthy Rich 1. Make decisions – The rich and successful don’t talk about it; they decide either way and move ahead. As the old saying goes, would you rather be glad you did or wish you had? 2. Come up with an idea – This is where all the money in the world comes from. People who have money have all benefited from good ideas in some shape or form. Consider McDonalds, Microsoft, Google, eBay, you name it. They all began with an idea, and by acting on your own ideas you too can begin to make your fortune. 3. Formulate a plan – A bad plan is better than no plan at all. Figure out the steps that you to need to take to get to where you want to go, roughly how long its going to take, and list the people or skills you need to help you along the way. 4. Take action and get started – The best ideas in the world don’t mean anything unless you act upon them. Action is the secret ingredient to major success in life. If you look at those who are successful in your own community, you’ll notice that they’re always in they are always active. 5. Observe what happens next – By getting into motion you are developing a prerequisite for success. This doesn’t mean that you’re going to make a hole-in-one with your first shot, so pay attention to the results you’re getting. Find out what you need to be measuring in order to know if you’re succeeding or failing. 6. Correct, adapt, improve, increase – When you’re succeeding you will want to gently improve things to further increase your results. If you’re not, the sooner you notice and begin to make changes the better. Sometimes the difference between success and failure can be ever so slight. 7. Manage your stuff – Whatever it is that you want in life, you must manage it. Good health requires a balance of work, relaxation, exercise and nutritious food. Financial success requires healthy positive cashflow that exceeds outgoings, and an excellent understanding of your own individual personal financial circumstances. The key is in paying attention to whatever it is that you want more of. 8. Persist – Never give up. To succeed you simply must persist, and its only when the going is tough that you will ever truly test this ability. 9. Reinvest/Diversify – When the profits start rolling in figure out what you are going to do next. Have a plan in place and outline how much goes where i.e. back into the business, into your pocket, to charity, wherever. Get a smart plan that will ensure the longevity of your success. 10. Celebrate – A life worth living is a life worth celebrating so make sure to celebrate your victories and successes, however small they may seem.
