One percent of people in the world are millionaires. But, it’s highly unlikely you’ve encountered one in your life unless you live in a few of those expensive locations. So this is a perfect opportunity for you to finally find out how rich people think, which could subsequently help you become one of them.
Rich People Have it Easy
There are a lot of misconceptions about rich people, but the sooner you get rid of them, the sooner your path towards a wealthy life can begin. First of all, a lot of people without means are not prepared to work hard for their money goals and like to think that rich people are lazy and have everything handed to them.
That couldn’t be further from the truth though: many millionaires and billionaires (who made their money instead of inheriting it) work very hard and even don’t stop working once they’ve gathered large sums of money. Some of them famously wake up at 4 am and have very strict routines that show they are, in fact, workaholics. And research has shown that most (not very wealthy) people are not prepared to work that hard for their goals.
It’s all in Your Hands
Secondly, rich people know what they want. You’ll rarely hear rich people dwell on the colour of the new sofa or which t-shirt to wear. Mark Zuckerberg famously followed the pattern Steve Jobs left behind: always wearing the same clothes because there are so many more important decisions they have to made in a day. So don’t fuss over insignificant things, rather set your mind on something and follow-through, no matter what comes your way.
Thirdly, rich people (probably) had rich parents or at least someone in their youth who instilled a healthy relationship towards money in them. That includes several factors and not having bad feelings towards money is one of the pillars of the money making house. Poor people often resent money or even hate it, while rich people view it as their right and means of liberation. Make a conscious effort not to think badly about money, if you didn’t have a rich upbringing.
One other factor stems from this point too. Rich people surround themselves with like-minded people. They don’t have anyone telling them they can’t do something, they don’t take no for an answer and have a better time to do than to listen to someone moan about never making it or never having money. Surrounding themselves with quality people also means having the best employees, because they are aware that success is a group effort.
Also, rich people don’t waste money. You might even be surprised at how cheap some of them may seem. But think about it: they didn’t get where they are now by foolishly blasting money around. On the contrary, they save wherever they can, and also try to make every big buy an investment, not a loss.
We’ve only scratched the surface with this, but do you think you could think like a millionaire after this? If you do, it’s time to play and make that million finally.
