One thing to do if you want to be rich is to copy the habits of the world’s richest people. Nobody gets rich by accident. Well, okay the people who win the lottery do but most of them lose the money so they don’t really count. We’re talking about real wealth, the Bill Gates and Oprah Winfrey kind. Do you want it? Then read on.
There’s a reason why the top 1% of the world is richer than the other 99%. It’s because of their habits and routines. They do things other people don’t and that’s why they have things other people don’t have. There’s no guarantee that these habits will make you a billionaire, but they’ll definitely make your life better. Here are five habits of the world’s richest people to copy in 2018:
1. They read
If you want to be rich, you absolutely have to read. Warren Buffett spends 80% of his day reading. When Elon Musk was asked how he learnt to build rockets, he said he learnt by reading. We know you have a life to live, but aim to read for at least 30 minutes a day.
2. They exercise
You knew this was coming right? Exercise is good for your mind, body and soul, and apparently your pocket too. Richard Branson and Mark Zuckerberg say that exercise is key to success. So what are you waiting for? The gym is calling you.
3. They pray or meditate
Successful people take time to get quiet everyday either through prayer or meditation, or even both. Oprah Winfrey has a morning meditation routine so you could try one too.
4. They plan
One of the major habits of the world’s richest people is planning. They have short term plans and long term plans and they also plan each day with a to-do list. Failing to plan is planning to fail.
5. They have multiple streams of income
You can’t get rich off a salary. If you thought your 9-5 would make you wealthy, think again. You need to save some of that money and use it for other investments. Don’t spend your whole life waiting for the end of the month before you can live your life.
