Only 5% do what it takes to create wealth

Successful, wealthy people are outliers.

Rich Poor WalletThey do certain things every day that 95% of the population don’t do.

It’s not easy to become successful and achieve a life of abundance.

It’s a long, hard journey, that few are willing to make.

That’s evidenced by the fact that only 5% of the population is wealthy.

This 5% has enough wealth to afford a life of abundance.

Most, the 95%, either struggle financially or must drastically reduce their standard of living in retirement.

It takes many years for the positive effects of good habits to return their investment and create a life of abundance.

But, they always do return their investment.

So, this truly makes the successful, that 5%, outliers.

What are those certain things the 5% do, that make them outliers?

  • Daily Growth – The 5% invest in themselves every day through self-education: reading, listening to audiobooks, podcasts, webinars, etc.
  • Focus – The 5% intensely focuses on specific daily activities that move them forward in achieving some big goal, life dream or major purpose
  • Gold-Plated Rich Relationships – The 5% seek to develop and grow relationships with other success-minded, upbeat, can-do people. They do this through the Giving First Doctrine, daily or frequent communication (Hello Calls, Happy Birthday Calls & Life Event Calls), consistent networking, participating in mastermind groups and volunteering at local, community-based non-profits (you’ll find many of the communities most successful people on their board of directors).
  • Positive Outlook – The 5% have a positive mental outlook. This improves brain performance, decision-making and is an emotional backstop to negativity.
  • Blueprint – The 5% create a blueprint for their future lives. This blueprint provides a clear vision of their destination.
  • Virtuosos – The 5% develop and hone their skill-sets through deliberate and analytical practice.
  • Only 5% do what it takes to create wealthModest Lifestyles – The 5% lives off of 80% or less of their net income, enabling them to accumulate savings, which they then prudently invest over many years.
  • Dream-Set – The 5% pursue dreams and goals that help them to increase their income and their wealth.
  • Happiness Mindset – The 5% make happiness a habit by being present during family events, by having a blueprint or plan they are following, taking care of their bodies and their health and surrounding themselves with individuals who share their positive outlook on life.

Building wealth is a process.

Only those who devote themselves to the process, succeed.

They are outliers.

They are the 5%.
