Did you know that 80% of millionaires made that money on their own? They didn’t have a trust fun or an inheritance. In fact, many times, they grew up in poverty which is what propelled them to make money regardless of obstacles. There are certain actions and characteristics that cause someone to succeed in meeting their goals.
It doesn’t happen by accident. It happens through determination, hard work, a never-say-never attitude, and good habits. Habits are what set rich and poor people apart, studies have found. Here are some of those habits that turned normal hard working people in millionaires.
1. They are Avid Readers
There is a common theme with millionaires and that is that they spend time reading. It might be reading up on things that they are involved with directly. It could be more indirect. The novel, “Moby Dick” could serve as inspiration due to determination. It allows people to gain insight into life and how the world works.
This is a practice you will want to adopt too if you’re hoping to become wealthy. In fact, 85% of millionaires read at least two books a month. They include topics like biographies of successful people. If they can’t be surrounded by mentors and successful people all the time, reading about it is the next best thing.
Self-health, health, current events, leadership, and psychology are other most-read topics for those striving to achieve great things. One of the great keys to being successful is by expanding what you know and your skills. If you put at least a half an hour aside every day to read, you’ll find that you are heavily inspired to know even more. Knowledge is power.
