Common Habits of Wealthy People

Administrator/ September 25, 2015/ LIVING A FULL LIFE, MOTIVATION/ 0 comments

Most people would agree that having money is a blessing. Now there are people who say money can’t buy happiness, and can cause more problems, but essentially we would all love to live the life of luxury. We also know that money is not just given to us, but we usually have to work extremely hard for the money we make. What about the wealthiest human beings in the world? People like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are billionaires, but how did they get to this point? They were not born into money, but worked very hard at creating their business, which made them wealthy. Research over the last several years has determined that wealthy people do share common habits, and these habits helped in creating their wealth.

Persistence is key

When it comes to habits of the wealthy, almost all have a persistent personality, which plays a role in all areas of their life. They firmly push and stay consistent because they know success is so close that they can taste it. They want it, and they want it bad.  The term “won’t give up without a fight” really holds true to these individuals. If they want something bad enough, they will also make sure to allocate as much time as possible toward a task. Instead of spending their free time playing video games or watching TV, they will read or browse the internet to gain as much knowledge as possible for future success.

Knowing the difference between attainable and unattainable goals

Wealthy people are realistic when it comes to their goals, and create goals that are specific. If goals are too generalized, they probably are not going to be attainable. Wealthy people not only create goals, but they come up with ways that make the goals attainable. Instead of saying how much more money they plan to make this year, they give a specific number to shoot for, as well as ways that this number can become a reality. They do not expect to make an additional million dollars by doing nothing. The goal has to be created with ideas or reasons for its attainability.

Knowing how to stay positive

Even in worse case scenarios, wealthy people tend to stay positive. In fact, they usually have an overall positive outlook on life. They look at the glass as being half full, and are optimistic about the present and future. These people love their life, and are not overly cocky in proclaiming this. Interestingly, a common habit of those considered poor is actually the opposite, where they have barely any positivity in their lives.

Stay educated

Many wealthy people continue their education, which is not always through university studies. They will spend time reading books or articles in their field. With so many free online courses available to anyone, wealthy people will continue to learn as much as they can, in order to grow. All of this education is ultimately used in attaining their overall goals, in every area of life, not just in creating wealth.

Surround yourself with success

It will do you absolutely no good to surround yourself with negative people, who will do nothing to further your own success. Wealthy people surround themselves with positive, successful people, who are similar to themselves. It does them no good to become involved with people who might bring them down. Instead they will network with others who might aid in their success. This can ultimately lead to lasting relationships that will grow and flourish.


Do you exhibit any of these habits or personalities? Of course you are not going to become wealthy if you are just an overall positive person. These are just habits that can lead to an overall person who is capable of becoming wealthy. Can you think of any other successful habits the wealthy might exhibit? Sound off below!
