    I have been around the world and met people from all walks of life while in the service and out. They all have the same thing in common as you have presented wealthy people, We all will ascend so nothing you pile up in this life will matter. You are building it for someone else who have not learned to be resourceful which is the core key for accumulating revenue.

    Let us break it down the way people who have wealth would do before they achieve the level of comfort.

    Once you decide not to work for someone else and make their visions come true. You have had enough so while you are just doing the basic action they are use to. You decide to start something on the side to see if it will work.

    Now that is the problem most people make. Starting a business requires three step which will lead everyone to understand what our 3% of our countries population which are the wealthy learn.

    You have to build a foundation with you committing no matter the challenges and loved ones laughing at you. Your going to make it through the years it takes. You have to change you way of thinking and actions to living as it is already done. You have to circle yourself around people of wealth and leave everything that is not related to such a lifestyle away from you.

    You living area must reflect a person of such status. You must learn everyday for the rest of your life as is required from them. You have to understand first build your foundation then a few revenue sources which will fund this new business of yours.

    Then socialize with them every chance you get with the belief of no matter what everything you write down will happen.

    You learn that the hows are for those who fit into two areas Posers and Amateur .You are now a Professional with the true Entrepreneurial Spirit. Which has you naturally a resourceful person. Which means learning from your new surroundings no one says or thinks something can not be done based on what is in or not in their banks or investments. They never say can’t and believe in their personal worlds they learn everyone creates. Which is one of the key elements of gaining more wealth than you can imagine.

    You can not start to live as one of the few if you do not have faith in yourself and abilities from the start. That is why the internet is only for communication with them and someone else really does the interaction. They are to busy enjoying their daily lifestyles of only doing activity that brings in more prosperity.

    This is only a view and you have done an excellent supportive presentation to mention duplication is the other key.

    Thank you for this eye opening information that has motivated this reader.

    You started by saying that almost half of the wealthy people rise early. What about the other half? Some wealthy people do take leisurely lunches. Some wealthy people do sleep later when they feel like it.
    One of the points about getting wealthy is that you earn and receive enough money to decide and choose how you want to spend your days. If it has to be rigid, with a tight schedule, no fun time midday, no fun snacks, etc., there would be far fewer rich people than there are in the world.
    What is being left out is the process. On the way toward building riches, one usually needs to work hard, maybe harder and longer hours than others. But once a certain amount of wealth is achieved, you create a team of assistants. Then it is up to you whether you want to continue working very hard or if you want to let down and have easier days.

    Hah, Cherrie! Your final comment got a chuckle out of me. I’ve been a night owl all my life, but just this morning I found myself resenting the fact that it was already 11:00 am and I was just getting started on the day’s work.
    Staying up late and sleeping late worked for me when I was teaching at my studio, because most students came after school and into the evening. I closed my studio down last month, and I’m going to have to start setting that alarm clock earlier. Just hope my body won’t rebel too much!
    Very good post – I’m sending it to Evernote.
    All the best,
    Leslie

    Hi Cherrie,

    I am a new B3 member and now I am in the process of meeting all the community members. This is how I found your site.
    I agree. It is important to know how rich people behave. How they work, how they relax, how they think etc.

    These are interesting facts that make you stop and meditate a bit. Let’s see what I do every day:

    I wake up early but not so early. I like to walk in the morning but not so much. Maybe about 15 minutes.
    I have a daily to do list and I check more than two thirds of it each day.
    My lunch is short.
    Alcohol is limited, junk food is limited. I still smoke but just a little bit. I try to quit.
    I rarely gossip. Only with my wife 1-2 times per week.

    I am not rich. Obvious I need to find out more habits of rich people to see where the mistakes are.

    I’m looking forward for the next article with rich people habits

    Have a wonderful day

    Hi Cherrie – great reminders – it is always good to know more than it being about the wealthy – how you can show up more in your life and for yourself. Thanks for sharing!

    Great reminders as to what the ‘rich’ do.. It makes a lot of sense.. Those who ‘waste’ time waste more than their time… It is a disciplined life that gets the results.. I’m sure occasionally they may take time to do the ‘fun’ stuff but that is also likely part of their structured life and is well planned out too! If you don’t plan, you plan to fail.. … Great post, Cherrie!

    Hi Cherrie,
    great points!
    I wonder whether the people who do all these things are doing it out of being inspired to do so or whether they are really hard on themselves with self discipline.
    Yes, those points all make sense!
    Some of them I have been doing naturally, while things like structure is still something I tend to rebel against.

    Thank you for sharing this!
    Cheers,
    Yorinda

    Cherrie,
    Love the article. I read and reread the Rich Habits book and it has really helped me to adjust my behaviors to reach a higher level of success. I’m not wealthy yet, but I do feel so much better about myself because I’m making more healthy choices.
    Kudos to the other people commenting here. I enjoyed reading those as well. Great minds think alike!
    Keep up the good work and sharing awesome content.

    Interesting research! I know at least 2 wealthy people (using the same criteria) who don’t count calories, and are very overweight. One of them gossips a lot. Michael Masterson and Tim Ferris wouldn’t agree with this research when it comes to staying rich. They both advocate finding good and reliable CEOs and managers who will take over your work for you, once the business is stable. Research is sometimes a bit skewed isn’t it.

  11. Cherrie,

    I love the fact that people waste time commenting on whether some rich person they know is FAT or someone else takes a long lunch, etc. The author compiled a basic profile of wealthy peoplel and their habits and the all make sense to me.

    I work late and I sleep late, but I work from home. All my appointments are in the afternoon and evening. I know a wealthy man, Steve G. Jones, who has a similar schedule.

    The point is not to argue with the research. The point of the research is that MOST wealthy people don’t waste time!!!! That’s the point. And they take care of their health! If they want to take a long lunch they can, but they want to get back to their work and doing something positive and constructive.

    You don’t have to follow every habit he outlines. But you should follow as many as you can. And ultimately, ‘don’t waste time’ , don’t fritter away your day on Facebook and Television and gossip if you want to achieve wealth.

    That’s the point everyone should be paying attention to!

    Thanks for sharing this great information!

    The early riser part is going to be hard – 3 hours ahead – Did that as a stockbroker (4am up ) and never could get used to it – too much of a night owl – but maybe I need to rethink that position 🙂
