Everyone finds their own way to wealth. Some people were insightful enough to buy Bitcoins when 1 BTC was equal to $1; others work a lot. People who are permanently wealthy have something in common. However, both those who sometimes get lucky and those who work a lot make mistakes, so they can’t really save money.
Researcher Tom Corley is interested in the differences between the habits of rich people and those who don’t have much money. He studied both groups for 5 years and made interesting conclusions.
Today Bright Side will tell you about 10 things you should stop doing if you want to be wealthier. And the bonus at the end of the article will help you make an important decision that many people have difficulties with.
1. Not meeting new people
Rich people love meeting new people. 68% of wealthy people said that they like meeting someone new. Only 11% of poor people said the same. Most people who reached financial stability made as much effort as possible to give a good impression of themselves and keep it. They don’t forget to congratulate new acquaintances (and old ones) on holidays and other important days.
2. Believing in fate
You can rely on luck or fate in very rare cases, perhaps when you are choosing between a red and a blue skirt. But when it comes to really important matters, rich people think that they determine their life path themselves. And 90% of poor people blame fate for their misfortunes and other factors they can’t control. And to improve their well-being, they invest money in psychics and lottery tickets instead of their own education.
