Rich habits poor habits | Are You an Anchor?

When Tom Corley embarked on his Rich Habits Study he was not content with identifying the Rich Habits of wealthy people.

Success habits only get you halfway down the field.

In order to get down the rest of the field and score, you also need to know what not to do.

That is why he also studied the Poor Habits of those struggling with poverty.

Poor Habits anchor you in poverty and affect everyone around you.

What are some of the anchors dragging you and everyone around you down?

Negative Beliefs — Negative beliefs are like apps you download onto your cell phone.

They program your thinking and direct your behaviour in an awful way.

Worse, they infect those within your social circle.

What are some of the negative beliefs that are acting as an anchor around your neck and dragging you and others down?

  •  I’m not smart
  • Poor people can’t become rich
  • Everyone in my family is overweight
  • I’m not lucky
  • I’m not a people person
  • I’m disorganized
  • I fail at everything

Negative Talk – We are constantly talking to ourselves and others.

When the words we use internally (self-talk) are negative, it’s like adding computer code to our negative programming.  

When the words we use externally (talking to others) is negative, it turns people off.

Negative people suck the energy out of everyone they come into contact with.

Negative people are simply exhausting to be around.

Gossip — Most gossip is negative.

When we engage in gossip it telegraphs to others that we cannot be trusted and, thus, should be avoided at all costs.

People catch on, the word gets around, and eventually, you will be alone and ignored.

Complaining — Everyone has problems.

We are all trying to solve our own problems.

When you complain to others about your problems it turns people off because they are overwhelmed trying to deal with their own problems.

They don’t need or want to hear about your problems.

They don’t have the energy to deal with their problems and your problems at the same time.

People catch on, the word gets around, and eventually, you will be alone and ignored.

Financial Mess — There are a lot of reasons why people struggle financially.

They spend more than they make, they take on too much debt, they struggle to hold onto a job, they mismanage their business, they gamble too much, they drink too much, they have a poor work ethic or they are not self-reliant and depend on the generosity of others to constantly bail them out financially.

Blame Thrower — Blame Throwers do not take responsibility for their life.

They blame everyone and everything for their lot in life.

Blame Throwers are by nature selfish individuals who have no control over their lives.

You ignore the ideas, opinions or feedback of others.

We are our own worst enemies.

Our anchors drag us down and everyone around us.

Those anchors act like neon billboard signs that tell others: “I am an anchor who will drag you down”.

Find your anchors and remove them.

If you don’t, people will catch on and you will find yourself alone and ignored.
