Top Ten shocking habits that all billionaires have
Often in our ordinary lives, we find ourselves drooling over the lavish lifestyles that the uber-rich get to lead. It just might be the very reason why every person, who has to sneakily dart their eyes to check the price tags for every purchase they make, could relate with Lorde’s hit song ‘Royals’. It’s true indeed that the billionaires live a life of luxury and comfort but ─except for the fortunate heirs─ billionaires don’t get success served to them on a silver platter.
Thanks to Hollywood movies, when a lot of us imagine the rich in their element, we picture people with Armani suits and Gucci boots gathered around a poker table with a cigar between their fingers. But in this video we will look at some of the unexplored shocking habits that got them to earn their fortune. Let’s take a glimpse into what it is that sets them apart from the crowd.
1: They invest in themselves:
It is common for workaholics to forget about themselves including their health and well-being, when working on something important. This quality is extremely unhealthy and dangerous, if it establishes itself as a habit. It might also limit your productivity in the future. This is why successful billionaires don’t hesitate in spending their time and money on themselves. They typically utilize their wealth to improve their lifestyle in a healthy way and constantly try to build a better version of themselves.
2: They work for long-term happiness:
An exemplary habit in billionaires is their willingness to sacrifice momentary happiness for a more sustainable and long-lasting contentment. Unlike most of us, who postpone working on little tasks to enjoy ourselves, they realize that the success and fortune that will follow as a result of their hard work will definitely make them happier.
3: They believe in innovation:
While working on something that is already popular and trending in the market may be fruitful for some, it isn’t enough to make someone successful enough to be a billionaire. Thus, a prominent habit in billionaire’s work ethic is that they believe in innovation. They strive to think out of the box for ideas and don’t hesitate to try out new methods and techniques according to the demands of the evolving market. Instead of following other’s pathway to life, they build their own way and work against the tide to launch unique projects and products. Imagine just how different the world would be right now, if Bill Gates had not thought of creating a newer, distinct version of computer operating systems, and you’ll realize how important innovation is.
4: They are not discouraged by failure:
Innovation is a great tool, but it comes with its risks. Innovative ideas are not always successful and often result in failure. For this, Billionaires have a habit of failing in strides and learning from them. I know what you guys must be thinking about this one. It would be that they have enough money to recklessly spend it on whatever they believe in. And that is true to a certain extent, but a man who is a billionaire now, wasn’t always a billionaire. At one point in time, he had to bear the fall and then stand back up again with his head held high. Whatever happens, they don’t lose hope and work harder the next time.
5: They work productively and sort out their priorities:
Successful people know that each day offers only a limited time which is why they work hard on prioritizing their tasks according to their importance. They get done with the tackier and more difficult task before the easier ones to power up their drive for the rest of the day. These priorities are not just limited to their work ethic but to their general approach to life as well. If they think that any activity in their schedule provides no benefit to them in their work or their physical and mental well-being, they simply cross it out from their to-do lists.
6: They spend less time dreaming and more time doing:
The more we think about a dream that we hope to fulfil, the more our fears about it keep increasing. We begin to point out irrational flaws and difficulties in it and then lose our valuable time in mindless thoughts. Billionaires don’t believe in wasting their precious time on weaving elaborate dreams. Instead, after a brief critical analysis, they immediately begin to work on their execution plan. While having big dreams is nice, keeping it limited to the boundaries of your mind is not favourable and billionaires steer clear of that mentality.
7: They don’t wait for opportunities but create them:
Often in our lives, we don’t work on our dreams, but we wait for opportunities. But billionaires realize that the ideal opportunity may never come. This is why they strive to change circumstances in their favour instead of waiting for ‘the right time’.
8: They look after their health:
Billionaires cautiously look after their health because they know that ‘Health is Wealth’. They work hard to maintain their diets, and fit in regular exercise in their busy schedules too. A popular research says that regular physical activity can give you back four extra hours of productivity each day. A healthy person can hustle harder and work with more mind clarity and focus. By following these health tips, he will be able to lead a healthy lifestyle.
9: They keep working on increasing their knowledge:
Billionaires don’t stop acquiring knowledge even after they are successful, with the hopes of learning something new each day. When asked for an advice for his success, Chairman of Fuyao Group, Cho Tak Wong said, “I’d tell young people to read. Read books about how to do things right. Read books about how to be a good person.”
10: They find equal time for work and play:
Everything in the world is better for you by applying a certain degree of moderation and balance to it. Billionaires work hard to earn a lot, and then work harder to please themselves with their wealth. And even though, it doesn’t appear that way, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this approach. While consuming too much of your time in doing things that you enjoy is not good, it is very important to maintain a balance between work and play. It is an established fact that people who spend their time doing both are more productive and can function better in all aspects of life. Working without any pleasure wears you out and eventually stops your drive.
Although this might surprise you, these are the habits and valuable customs that govern a billionaire’s life.
