The Top 8 Skills Wealthy People Have Mastered
A very small minority of the 7.4 billion people in the world are wealthy.
As reported by the BBC, an Oxfam, Credit Suisse study found that the eighty top billionaires in the world have amassed $1.9 trillion in wealth, marking a 50 percent increase in the past four years alone.
Here are right skills that can help you to become more successful and wealthy.
1. Become known for one thing.
Many a creative person will tell you they have many talents, which can be both a blessing and a curse. Excelling at various things can make your head spin as you aim to fit them all into your weekly schedule.
Those who are exceptionally successful will tell you this is the number one key to becoming successful. Focus on and be known for one thing -- when you are the expert in one subject and are living and breathing what you do in addition to obtaining exceptional results, clients will travel from near and far to work with you.
The book The One Thing, by Gary Keller, is a great read.
2. Master a mindset.
Incredible things happen when you become aware of your daily thoughts and begin doing the work to change the thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve you.
The best book I've read on this subject is Breaking the Habit of Being You' by Dr Joe Dispenza. The book helps you understand the brain and how it works, and offers tools for changing your thoughts in a simple yet practical way. Here's a recent article on the topic.
3. Build muscle.
There are multiple ways you can stay fit, from yoga, Xtend barre, swimming, tennis, golf, or running. However, one of the fastest ways to lose weight, get tone ,and stay healthy is to build muscle.
There are plenty of people who are thin but have more fat than muscle. By the time you reach the age of 50, the average person loses up to 10 percent of muscle mass.
Building muscle can improve bone density, reduce the risk of injury, boost metabolism, help you gain tone and lose weight, improve your quality of sleep, and raise your level of confidence.
4. Turn habits into success rituals.
Your habits can help or distract you from achieving your goals. One of the best ways to effectively change your habits is to implement a set morning and evening routine.
There are thousands of articles and books on the toping, including The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod.
Success rituals are an effective part of setting a positive tone for the day and maximizing your time and results.
