Good Habits I Learned From My Mom

We pick up most of our adult habits from our parents. 75% of the self-made millionaires in my study said they learned good success habits from their parents.

Parents who mentor their kids for success in life set their kids up for a life of success and happiness.

Below are a few of the Rich Habits I learned from my Mom:38662892_l

  • Show Empathy: Many people are going through some life crisis and kindness and compassion helps ease their pain.
    Be there emotionally for people who are going through hard times.
  • Be Generous: Help people who are struggling in life.
  • Attend Funerals: A death in the family is one of those life events I write and talk about a lot.
    When you attend funerals you put your relationships on steroids. Death of a loved one is painful. Attending funerals shows you care.
  • Laugh Every Day: Find a reason to be happy. Find something funny in everything in life. You can’t be sad when you’re laughing.
  • Money is the Route of All Evil: Pursuing anything for the love of money alone is wrong. 

    Find something you are passionate about and don’t worry about the money.
  • You Can’t Control What You Can’t Control: Much of life is outside your control.
    Just try every day to control what you can control and don’t worry about what is outside your control.
  • Creative Pursuits Make You Happy: When you engage in anything that requires creativity you will be happy.
    My Mom loves playing the piano. She always has a smile on her face when she is playing piano. Writing makes me happy, so I write every day.
    When you develop a skill that involves creativity it will make you happy.
  • Love: Show love to everyone you meet. Love solves most problems in life. Everyone needs to be loved.
