developing proactive habits


 -- Quote of the Day --

“Reading – we all know that reading is important, it is a critical good habit… 88% of the wealthy in my study, they read 30 min or more each day of self-help, self-improvement, career related material; compare that to 2% of the poor. …The wealthy people their lives are all about continuous self improvement, so they read – they read 2 or more education books a month, so 24 books a year at a minimum. Poor people don’t do this – if they do read they read for entertainment. …79% of the wealthy network 5 hours or more per month verses 16% for the poor. …The habits that we pick up in life, 40% of the day is habit, so you are on auto pilot – if your parents did not teach you success habits, then 40% of the time you are on autopilot living poverty habits and life is bad. …66% of the wealthy watch 1 hour or less of TV per day; verses the average individual watching 6 hours of TV per day. …Even if you shaved off one hour and used it for reading, converting it to a rich habit. …44% of the wealthy in my study wake up 3 hours before work – doing all sorts of things from exercising, reading, meditation, studying… they are doing any number of things before they set foot in their business, where they have improved themselves in some way. …76% of the wealthy exercise aerobically 30 min or more 4 days a week; compare that to 34% of the poor… all you have to do is drop poverty habits and convert 1 or 2 of them to success habits – you have just improved your chances of success by four fold.”
