Many years ago, I started asking myself some questions like, “Why are some people more successful than others?” This question became the focal point of three months research, reading more than 20 books and reading top blogs owned by millionaires so I can unravel this mystery.
Over time, the answer came to me, one by one and gradually crystallized into a clear picture and a simple explanation. And here it is, “Your life today is the sum total of your actions, choices and decisions up to this point.”
The most important discovery in the fields of psychology and success is that fully 95% of everything that you think, feel, do and achieve is as a result of habit.
To simply put it, successful people have “success habits” and unsuccessful people do not. As a result, they accomplish 10 to 20 times as much as average people who have not yet learned these habits and practiced these behaviors.
I want to share with you these daily habits that could make you a millionaire in the nearest future. There is no real secrets that make one a millionaire but a simple daily habits that later gravitate and turn that person into a millionaire.
1. Wake up Early
Do you find it hard to get up from bed in the morning? Then, you have to find out how you can make waking up from bed in the morning exciting. Millionaires don’t ever feel lazy waking up from bed, in fact, they feel excited because it is another day for them to move closer to their goals and dreams.
One habit you need to start developing if you want to become a millionaire is to always to wake up early. And why do you need to wake up early? Millionaires wake up to plan their day 1 hour or 2 before the average person wake up.
This makes them ahead and knows what they are to accomplish for that day. Some wake up by 5 am to visualize on what they are to do for that day.
2. Create a To-Do List
If you have been studying millionaires you will know that they all have daily to-do list. This they write early in the morning immediately they wake up. This is how they accomplish much more than the average person.
A to-do list keeps you organize and guide you through the whole day so you can do something productive and stay productive too. I do this daily and I must say, it has really helped me being productive in my work and it has also increased my income dramatically and has become a permanent daily habit for me.
Arise early in morning and read for at least 30-60 minutes in your field. Underline and take notes, think of how you can apply what you have read into your work and daily life. if you can continuously read for 30-60 minutes, this amount to one book per week.
The average American read less than one book per year. If you continue to read one book per week, it amount to 52 books a year. If you can read this amount of books, do you think this might not give you an edge over those who can’t do this?
This is one daily habit that could make you a millionaire irrespective of your field of work.
Today longevity is a matter of choice and design. You can actually decide today to enjoy superb levels of physical health, and by developing specific health habits, you can assure that you live longer and better than has been possible for any other generation in human history.
If you want to live long to enjoy your wealth, then you must take good care of your physical health. Millionaires don’t place with this. They make sure they keep fit daily, some even have daily fit goals.
5. Review their Goals Daily
Develop the habit of regular goal settings and reviewing it daily. Always get a book and write out your daily goals every morning before you go out. Don’t mistake goals for to-do list. Goals are what you want to achieve while to-do list is what you tend to do to achieve those goals.
This exercise help your goals go deep into your subconscious mind that you even remember it even when you are not with the paper and keeps you alert of what you want to achieve.
The sixth daily habits that could make you a millionaire you need to develop is the habit of appreciation. Begin each day with gratitude, appreciate the fact that you are alive, still have family members and friends, you are in good health and a peaceful country to live in.
Do you have a written affirmation that you recite daily? Do you know that almost most millionaires in the world have a written affirmation on different areas of their lives that they recite every day? You must have heard of the power of affirmation, don’t you?
If you want to have the habits of millionaire then affirmation should be on your mind. Write it down that you already possess the habits of millionaires and read it first thing in the morning when you wake up and late at night before you sleep.
In conclusion, one of your great goals in life should be to develop the habits that lead to health, happiness and true prosperity. Your aim should be to develop the habits of character that enable you to be the very best person that you can imagine yourself becoming.
The high purpose of your life should be to ingrain within yourself the habits that enable you to fulfill your full potential even as a millionaire.
