1. Rich people aren't that smart.
They're just normal people.
Once you realize this, something changes in your brain.
You start thinking, "If they can do it, why can't I?"
Seeing your "dumb" friend making money will help you realize you can do it too.
2. They're less jealous.
When we had poor friends, they made us feel guilty for going to Disney World with our kids.
Everything had to be a secret.
Rich friends understand and appreciate the hard work it took to earn what you have. And don't judge you for it...
3. They're more generous.
Rich people provide more jobs.
Give more to charity.
They help other businesses by spending money.
They give bigger tips.
They understand how to make money so they don't hold onto it so tightly.
They make money so they can help more people.
4. They're more open-minded.
To make money you have to think outside the box.
Try new things.
Experiment with what works.
Work with new people.
Look for new ideas.
A closed mind = a shrinking business.
An open mind = a growing business.
A growing business = better revenue.
5. They focus on what they can control.
They know getting caught up in the latest news cycle won't lead to success. Instead, they focus on what they can control.
The way they show up in relationships.
And their impact on the world.
6. They're always learning.
Poor people think learning only happens in school.
Rich people are self-learners.
They learn what other successful people are doing and model that.
They choose what, when, and how they want to learn.
And they never stop.
7. They're more resourceful.
They don't ask "if" it can be done, but "how" it can be done.
They don't make excuses.
They come up with solutions to problems that benefit everyone.
They do what it takes to get the job done.
8. They view failure as a learning opportunity.
They are more resilient in the face of setbacks.
They keep going when things get hard.
Poor people may see failure as a confirmation of their lack of ability.
9. Rich friends make you richer.
When you surround yourself with other successful people, you will naturally become more successful yourself.
You'll realize what's possible.
You'll learn from them.
And change the way you look at life and money.
The truth is, we believe anyone can create wealth.
Rich people aren't any better or smarter than anyone else in any way.
They've just learned a few things and created some habits that others haven't yet.
If you don't have any rich friends yet, then you can lead the way.
