Rich Habits

Last week I shared with you the two Money Making Rules that I live and thrive by.
To continue our theme of wealth, I’ve picked my favorite ½ dozen rich habits.

Now let’s create a 30 day Get Rich Campaign:

Just for 30 days, exercise the habits of a rich person.
Just 30, after that you can go back to poor habits if you like, but only for 30… until the next issue of SUCCESS Magazine hits your mailbox, try on these habits.

You in?

Okay… the first habit is: ...CLICK TO READ MORE

Oh and PS… you probably saw the teaser page in the print edition of SUCCESS Magazine, but coming in November will be the release of my new book titled:

The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster—Why Now is the Time To #JoinTheRide

I’ve been working on it for over a year and I am really really excited about it.
The main purpose of the book is to help onboard 10 million more entrepreneurs.
You see most new entrepreneurs fail because they are unprepared for the emotional roller coaster they will experience.

So this book warns, prepares and equips them to be emotionally bullet proof.
It also teaches them the essential skills for entrepreneurial success: sales, recruiting (top talent), leadership (culture of performance) and personal productivity.

I think you are going to really love it, but even more importantly I think it is going to encourage many more people to make the leap into entrepreneurship… and not only survive now, but thrive. We’ll be releasing more information soon, but be on the lookout—it’s going to be a fun ride!

Money Making Rules

When it comes to making money, there are two rules I live by.
Lucky for me, I learned them both when I was 12.

I suppose I was like any red blooded twelve-year-old boy—I dreamed of one day owning a Ferrari. I didn’t deck my bedroom walls with posters of movies, celebrities, athletes or outer space; I had four Ferrari posters—all cherry red.

One day after school I walked into my house to see my dad’s mentor, business partner and former college football coach sitting at the kitchen table with my father. He had seen my small shrine to the Red Beauty in my room and asked, “A Ferrari huh? Have you figured out how you are going to get one?”

“Um, no.” I replied with twelve-year-old feigned disinterest. “Well you better get to work if you want one of those bad boys.” I explained that I was working – I mowed a couple lawns on the street and picked up straggler nails at a local construction site for a penny a piece.

“How much you earning in a week?” Coach asked. “$25,” I responded, bragging.
Coach let out a guffaw. “At that rate, you’ll be a corpse behind the wheel! You need to make more money, faster!”  “But how?” I asked.

Why the Rich Get Richer

 

 

…and the successful become more and more successful.

I have to confess something to you. While you can definitely glean ideas, tips and important distinctions that will accelerate your progress, there are a few advantages that do separate the superachievers from everyone else that are not easily accessible.

Advantages you cannot simply find in a magazine, book or CD/DVD program, unfortunately.

These three advantages are access to Counsel, Connections and Strategies. 
Let me explain briefly.

Counsel—The best in the world have the best in the world advising, consulting and coaching them. It is one of the greatest ways they gain advantage over their competitors.

The best golfer, tennis player, baseball pitcher, singer, even surgeon, CEO and top entrepreneur all invest in highly paid advisors and coaches. Why? This is a massively critical point about high performance.

There is a phenomenon called unconscious incompetence, meaning, you don’t even know when you aren’t doing something correctly or to the best of your ability. It takes someone outside of you to observe, identify, prod and counsel you in order to bring awareness to the adjustments needed take your performance to the next level.

A top CEO once said to me, “You can never pay too much to rent someone’s eyes, mind and experience.”

If you want to take your life to the next level, you, too, will want to seek out the best advisors and coaches to help get you there.

Connections—It is not just who the top achievers in the world know and have access to; what’s far more critically valuable is the high-achieving reference group this provides them. As human beings we raise or lower our performance to match the expectations and performance level of our reference group. As

Stephen Covey pointed out, if you take a walk with someone whose pace is quicker than yours, it will be uncomfortable at first but you will ultimately (and unconsciously) match their pace. The same is true if someone’s pace is naturally slower than yours—you will slow your pace to match theirs.

The power of associations has been written about many times, but this is one of the great limitations most success seekers have in being able to raise their game and change their life—they aren’t connected to a reference group that can help them reach their goals.
