There are timeless habits that all millionaires have so that they can have more, do more, share more and to be masters of their own destiny.
While there are a lot more than 10 habits that they need to have before becoming successful millionaires. Here are the top 10
Habit number One: Goals.
Goals give you a clear sense of direction and a blueprint for the future. This is where you take the dreams out of your head and put them down onto paper.
This is were you plan to arrive at a well designed future destination rather than at an un-designed future destination. Goals must be clear, precise and action oriented.
A crucial part of goal setting is to ask yourself why?
Why do you want that house?
Why do you want that car?
Why do you want that position in the company?
Why do you want that salary?
Once you ask enough whys? the hows get easier!
Habit number Two: Passion.
Whatever you work at, be passionate about it. This is a fundamental secret for financial success.
What do you really love doing? And what do you have a natural talent for? What are your hobbies and interests? Once you have these answers, throw your heart and soul into doing it the best that you possibly can.
All millionaires love the work that they do.
Habit number Three: Excellence.
Commit yourself to excellence in everything that you do.
Set a goal today to be in the top 10% of your professional field.
“Excellence can be obtained if you:
…care more than others think is wise;
…risk more than others think is safe;
…dream more than others think is practical;
…expect more than others think is possible.”
Habit number Four: Education.
Dedicate yourself to lifelong education.
Learn as much as you possibly can about your business. Learn the latest news and trends. Remember, the market pays excellent rewards for having excellent knowledge.
“Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins”- Jim Rohn
Habit number Five: Customer service.
Dedicate yourself to always give excellent customer service, as the rewards are in direct proportion to the service that you give to people.
Ask yourself these questions:
What do my customers want?
What do my customers need?
What do my customers value?
What service can I give my customers better than everyone else?
What are my customers buying from others today? And what do I need to do to get them to buy from me?
Habit number Six: Don’t believe in failure.
Be prepared for the ups and downs along the way. Millionaires do not believe in failure, they just think of it as not the desired result yet, and that a different plan or strategy is needed.
Habit number Seven: Imagination.
Use your imagination. You have more creative ability than you think. We are at a moment in time when everything is automated for us.
Start using a journal, and start writing down all of your ideas, notes, and to-do lists that you have during your day! Remember to always think on paper! You never know when you could have that eureka moment that could be lost forever to memory, if you do not commit it to paper.
Guess what? Millionaires do not spend most of their free time watching soap operas and reality TV shows. Limit the amount of TV you watch to a bare minimum.
Habit number Eight: Surround themselves by positivity.
Surround yourself with like minded, positive people. 85% of your success in life is going to be determined by the quality of the relationships that you have in your business and personal life.
If you want to be a wealthy person, associate with positive, wealthy people. Associate with people who are optimistic and happy and who are moving forward in their lives. At the same time, try to stay away from negative, critical, complaining people.
Habit number Nine: Back it all up!
Back-up everything that you do with the three qualities of perseverance, willpower and belief. These are the strongest traits that every millionaire has.
To have the courage to persevere in the face of adversity and disappointment, to have the willpower and tenacity to stay at it longer than anyone else, and to have total belief in everything that you do, are the qualities that show the true measure of the belief that you have in yourself and your ability to succeed.
Habit number Ten: Gratitude.
All millionaires are grateful for everything that they have. Their friends and family, their health and spirituality, their business and their social life. Because without all of these they can never be truly wealthy.
