We all have habits and the best ones are obviously those that serve us. I normally read a book only once but on this occasion I couldn’t help but read The Top 10 Habits of Millionaires over and over again. From reading it I picked up not just the ideas of the millionaire but general ideas that could be applicable to life as a whole; so from my view it could be a lovely book for all. Below is a brief summary of the habits discussed in this book as I have understood them …..
Top 10 Habits
1. Ask Empowering Questions: In this section you are encouraged to ask; learn to ask yourself questions that stretch you beyond your current levels of experience. You must ask questions that will broaden your horizon as well as expand your mindset because the mind is so powerful you most certainly will receive answers for any question asked.
2. Focus on personal development: This book is for the millionaires I mean those who will love to become one but like I said you could extract relevant information and mould it to suit other areas of your life. So in this section acquiring patience, knowledge and wisdom is very essential. And remember if you alleviate risk out of life you conversely take opportunities out of life too.
3. Have multiple sources: in this case it’s crucial to have multiple sources of income but in general you must learn to develop the skills of getting people together. Skills to get people together to embrace one anothers difference. This is a special skill which will need learning and practice.
4. Be Generous: There is something magical and lovely about generosity and it has to be done from the heart !
5. Work for profit : This is for you if you like to embrace the millionaire concept. From my experience wages are great but profits are super super great!!!. Learn to work for profit(s) .
6. Continually learn and Grow: One of my mother’s favourite sayings is that we learn every day. You must improve and better yourself in areas of life you want to see change. Life is not static but dynamic so you must move with the change.
7. Take calculated Risks: Play to Win and eliminate the fear of loss …The biggest gap in the world is between I Should and I didn’t. Calculated risk(s) has to been given thoughtful consideration for which the potential costs cum potential benefits has been weighted and considered. The person who risks nothing does nothing, has nothing, is nothing and becomes nothing. He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live~Leo F. Buscaglia
8. Embrace Change: Change promotes opportunity for growth; Change teaches us new things that we need to learn .The quicker we accept change when it comes the sooner we learn the lesson.
9. Talk about ideas: I love this section and here is a quote worth reflecting on; Big People talk about ideas, average people talk about things and small people talk about other people! What do you spend most of your time talking about? According to this book there are 3 types of people; those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who say what happens.
10. Think Long Term: Stretching and projecting your thinking into the future certainly holds its benefits.
Conclusively it’s an interesting book and is worth reading. You can get it Here It’s a small, compact book and you could read in a day. It may explain why I have read it over and over again!
