They say that our lives are the sum total of our behaviors.
And our behaviors are the result of the thoughts we think, most of the time.
One of thing that you find when you study successful people is that often times it was not on purpose.
But an accident.
The book about how Facebook was “invented” and all the drama that went on behind the scenes is called “The Accidental Billionaires.”
I did some studying about the character in “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
Turns out this guy was a natural salesman, and he was in the right place at the right time.
When he was doing all his “cold calling,” he had a lot of help.
It was when the stock market was soaring, and every night there was something on the news about how well the stock market was doing.
So the people he was calling were ALREADY worried about “missing out” on one of the greatest bull runs in history.
In fact, the guy was so driven to make money, he enrolled in dental school. But on the first day, his professor said, “you’ll never get rich being a dentist.” So he quit.
The reason most people are successful is that they just do what’s natural. For them, that’s good.
They just show up, do what they are driven to do, and they’ll get rich.
Some are “luckier” than others. For example, Zuckerberg, the facebook guy, probably wouldn’t have made so much if he’d been born in the thirties.
On the other hand, take a guy like Bill Gates. I saw his mugshot on this website that had “celebrities that were arrested.”
Gates was REALLY young. He almost looked like a kid. But he didn’t look worried. Because WAY BACK THEN he’d already made millions.
In fact, he started hustling when he was still a teenager. Just like the Wolf of Wall street guy.
They already had the THINKING that led to the DAILY HABITS that would make them rich.
So no matter what the markets did, or the economy did, they still figured out a way to get paid.
The good news is that changing your habitual thinking patterns, that lead to your habitual behavioral patterns is EASY.
It takes time, sure. But you don’t have to discover the secrets of alchemy or nuclear fusion.
You just need to PRACTICE the right thinking patterns. Until they become AUTOMATIC.
And when they become AUTOMATIC, your behaviors will naturally change.
They’ll change into a lifetime of behaviors that add up to MASSIVE success.
All it takes is a few minutes a day, and you’re on your way.
