Rich Habits: #1 – Form good daily habits and follow these habits each and every day.

I did a commentary on this book a January 2, 2018, however since this book had such a powerful effect on me, I thought would only be fair for me to share the ideas on this book in greater detail. In the book Rich Habits, Corley describes ten key points:

  1. Form good daily habits and follow these habits each and every day.
  2. Set goals for each day, for each month, for each year and for the long-term; focus on goals every single day.
  3. Engage in self-improvement each and every day.
  4. Devote part of each and every day to forming lifelong relationships
  5. Live each and every day in a state of moderation
  6. Accomplish daily tasks each and every day; adopt a “DO IT NOW” mindset.
  7. Engage in rich thinking each and every day.
  8. Engage in rich thinking each and every day.
  9. Save ten percent of gross income every paycheck
  10. control thoughts and emotions each and every day.

These ten key points, if practiced on a daily basis will help a person become successful. So far by personally practicing them I’ve noticed a stark contrast in not only opportunities but also just mental and physical health.

Form good daily habits and follow these habits each and every day

According to Corley there are four types of luck: random good luck, random bad luck, opportunity good luck, and opportunity bad luck. The opportunity lucks are a result of habits. By forming good habits around their lives and their occupation they can influence luck and make lucky breaks.

For example if you practice piano everyday eventually you’ll get an opportunities to play and eventually someone in the audience will recognize your talents and help promote you. On the converse, if you don’t practice often and you meet an agent – you’ll probably sound terrible and hence they won’t promote you.

Good habits that Corley promotes are, reading everyday, focusing on self improvement everyday and having a healthy lifestyle everyday in addition to focusing on improving one’s trade. After a time these habits will add up. In addition to this he also promotes that one reduce bad habits – habits that take away time from self improvement and health while adding no future benefits, such as surfing the web for entertainment or smoking.

I’ve noticed that this key point alone has helped me lose a considerable amount of weight, helped me become more articulate and knowledgeable about business and finances. The fact that I’m in great physical shape and well read in certain fields has given me a sense of confidence that I’d never had when I was still trying to “Fake it until I made it“.

From personal experience I highly recommend this book and developing good habits.
