Day 90: What Rich People Do

When in Rome, do as the Romans do.
— St. Ambrose, 387 A.D.

As I'm getting back into research for my business launch, I often like to read articles about entrepreneurship. I came across an interesting article today about what rich people do differently than poor people. The article isn't saying poor people are bad, but rather emphasizing "rich habits" versus "poverty habits."

The following comes straight from the article:

1. Rich people always keep their goals in sight.
"I focus on my goals every day."
Rich people who agree: 62%
Poor people who agree: 6%

2. And they know what needs to be done today.
"I maintain a daily to-do list."
Rich people who agree: 81%
Poor people who agree: 19%

3. They don't watch TV.
"I watch TV one hour or less per day."
Rich people who agree: 67%
Poor people who agree: 23%

4. They read … but not for fun.
"I love reading."
Rich people who agree: 86%
Poor people who agree: 26%

5. Plus, they're big into audio books.
"I listen to audio books during the commute to work."
Rich people who agree: 63%
Poor people who agree: 5%

6. They make a point of going above and beyond at the office.
"I do more than my job requires."
Rich people who agree: 81%
Poor people who agree: 17%

7. They aren't hoping to win the jackpot.
"I play the lottery regularly."
Rich people who agree: 6%
Poor people who agree: 77%

8. They watch their waistline.
"I count calories every day."
Rich people who agree: 57%
Poor people who agree: 5%

9. And they take care of their smiles.
"I floss every day."
Rich people who agree: 62%
Poor people who agree: 16%

So what's my take away? The people with "rich habits" are leaders. They get things done by actually doing something. I don't know about you, but I feel encourage and ready take on my next task...my marketing strategy.
