5 Habits of Successful People
Let’s talk about the 5 habits of successful people that only 1% of the highly successful are doing. I interviewed a few, and of course I am also a multi-millionaire, so, these are a few things that I’ve learned and want to share with you right now.
Habit Number One
They like to learn.
Let me be very transparent. I am not saying that you need to be a multi-millionaire to be successful, as you can be successful in different ways.
Success is defined differently for everybody, but one thing successful people have in common is that they love to learn.
You love to learn because you’re here reading this.
You could be goofing off on YouTube or on Facebook but you decided to be here and learn something about becoming a better person, a better trader, more successful.
I personally do not have cable TV
I cut it many years ago, and I’m curious do you have it?
What I realized for myself is that I plopped in front of the TV and watched way too many commercials.
Think about it. If you have a one-hour show, forty-five minutes is the actual show, and 15 minutes are commercials.
So I cut cable. I like to read and watch educational videos and also motivational videos.
Number one this is what all successful people have in common. They like to learn because they know there is always an area where they can get better habit.
Habit Number Two
You are the sum of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Be very careful when you choose your surroundings.
You might have noticed throughout your life that you are becoming what the 5 people that you spend most time with are, in terms of income and habits.
This is why I choose with whom I hang out very carefully. It might mean that maybe some of your friends you are not seeing as often. Think about it.
It’s important that you surround yourself with positive people, people who want you to be successful.
Think about it this way
When you’re being criticized, who is criticizing you? A person who is more successful than you, or a person who is less successful than you?
Typically, you are being criticized by less successful people, right.
You know the kind of people I’m talking about, the ones who always say, “You know what. Don’t even try to do this. Don’t even try to learn how to trade. You will lose your money.”
Have you ever heard this? Stay away from these people, be surrounded by people who support you, your dreams and your ambitions.
Habits of Successful People Number 3
It’s not about the goal. It is about becoming the person who can accomplish the goal.
And we talked about this several times. It is about the mindset.
Think about it this way. If you think like a millionaire and you act like a millionaire what will eventually happen? You will become a millionaire.
Let me give you another example.
For me, one of my goals is to be a great dad, and for those of you who have been following for a while you know this.
The two big things that are driving me
The two things that I want to have written on my tombstone, are that I was a great dad and I was a great teacher who impacted the lives of millions of people.
If you want to be a great dad, or a great mom, and you think like a great mom and you act like a great mom, you will be a great mom.
Keep this in mind: it’s not about the goal. Write down what type of person you need to become to accomplish the goal.
Habit Number Four
Get a mentor so that you can get growing. Getting a mentor is so important.
This is one of the things that I learned in my life. If I want to acquire a new skill I’m not asking myself how do I acquire the skill because that is the wrong question.
I’m asking myself who already knows what I want to know and who can show me the shortcuts.
Right now one of my goals is to be more present on social media. I want to do more engaging videos on being a better teacher, on being more motivating for you.
So this is why right now I’m not searching Youtube for how to be better on social media.
No, I talked to somebody who is great at this and this is what all successful people do.
They get a mentor, because if you tried to figure it out yourself, most probably you will spend more time trying to figure it out.
You might get it wrong and therefore, eventually, it will cost you more money.
Habit Number Five
2 or 3 income sources are better than one. I personally have multiple sources of income.
I trade stocks, options, and when I have time I also day trade futures. This is one of my sources of income.
Another source of income for me is real estate. I have several apartment complexes that are producing an income so I have two sources of income.
I also have an educational business called Rockwell Trading. Rockwell Trading is not contributing to my income a whole lot. It’s the other way around.
I’m investing in the business because I believe in my mission. I believe that this company has great products like the PowerX Optimizer and what I’m teaching you here.
I know that I can make a great impact.
2 or 3 income sources are better than one. How many of these income sources do you have? Do you have two or three?
