Life dosent give you what you want, it gives you what you deserve so no greatness comes in life without a price been paid. To be wealthy and successful, you must be ready to make the sacrifice and that is what most people don't know.
Those who always try to follow the shortcut to succes always get stranded on the way. Take a look at people like Hushpupi who was just caught in money laundring recently, others like Anini,Evans and many others.
If you want to be rich, you must be ready to follow and emulate the rich also. That others have done it is a prove that you can do it also.
Below are some habits of the rich you should try to attract success into your life.
1. Good network
Always surround yourself with likeminded and ambitious people if you want to be successful. Steve Jobs (the late co founder of apple) said, " i bring out the ideas and let intelligent people do the work" . Successful people always build a network of intelligent and like minded people around them so if you want to be successful, check people you associate with and your network.
2. Be an early riser
This is another habit of the rich you should emulate to be successful. Research jas shown that 60% of successful people and even C.E.Os are early risers.Tim Cook ( C.E.O of apple ) wakes up at 3:45 am, Jack Dorsey (co founder and C.E.O of twitter) wakes up at 5:30 am, Richard Branson ( founder and C.E.O of virgen group) wakes up at 5:30am and many others. When you wake up early, you will have the time to meditate and begin your activities for the day. You cannot sleep 9 hours a night, keep sleeping during the day and expect riches to come.Emulate this habit and your life will change.
