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.

Those pictures will tell you about 10 things you should stop doing if you want to be wealthier.

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.

3. Hating your job



“I love what I do!” This is what 85% of financially successful people say. Poor people see more disadvantages in their jobs. With an attitude like this, you will probably agree that it’s quite hard to increase your income. If you don’t like the job you are doing, you should change it, not whine.

4. Not paying attention to your health




Wealthy people devote a lot of time to their health. This includes visits to the doctor, a healthy lifestyle, sports (76% of successful people do physical exercises 4 times a week), a balanced diet, and the absence of bad habits. Among those who have a low income, only 13% see a connection between good health and success.

5. Not taking risks



Only 6% of poor people agreed to take a risk to improve their financial situation. And more than 50% of the rich people who took part in the experiment agreed to take the same risk. More than that, many rich people noticed that at least once in their lives taking risks led to big failures, but they tried to move on instead of fixating on them.

“Not reading means not thinking,” Dostoyevsky once said. 88% of rich people agree with the writer. They read books about self-development, professional materials, and historical literature for at least 30 minutes a day. Only 2% of poor people devote this much time to reading.
