Why Most People Never Bounce Back from Failure

The Surprising Difference Between Millionaires and the Middle Class

I’m currently running my fourth business. The first one failed miserably. So did the second one. And the third. So, why then is this one so successful? It’s, in part, because I knew how to come back…and what to do next.

Why Most People Never Bounce Back from Failure

The Problem with Failure

The problem with failure is that most people handle it wrong. They respond in the wrong way and then change course. Rather than trying the same thing again, they think they have to try something new.

That makes sense, of course. When you fall flat on your face, instinct tells us to avoid whatever it was that led to that pain. But we should do the exact opposite. We should try it again.

Studies show us that is exactly what successful people do. One study, done by Lewis Schiff, author of the book Business Brilliant, shows that self-made millionaires have at least three significant business failures in their lives. Sounds familiar to me.

Interview with Tom Corley of Rich Habits | World Changer Show

What are the habits of the wealthy?

Tom Corley Rich HabitsThey could very well be the same habits that help one to have a great marriage, be a great parent, live a long, healthy life, and ultimately change the world.

I was honored to recently spend more than an hour interviewing best-selling author, Tom Corley about some of the Rich Habits he has discovered and shared in recent years. Tom understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age 9 his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night.

For five years, Tom observed and documented the daily activities of 233 wealthy people and 128 people living in poverty. He discovered there is an immense difference between the habits of the wealthy and the poor. During his research he identified over 200 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” The culmination of his research can be found in his #1 bestselling book, Rich Habits – The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals.

His new book is Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to Be Happy and Successful in Life and you can win one of FIVE copies right here. See below for details.

2 Things To Do Before You Become Rich by Austin Netzley

Do you want to be rich?

I thought so. We may all have different definitions of the word, but who doesn’t want to be rich on some level? Who wouldn’t want to be able to enjoy more experiences, not worry about money, and help more people?

I recently recorded an interview with Austin Netzley of the YoProWealth Podcast. Follow me on Twitter and I’ll be sure to share it with you when it airs. Afterwards, I asked him to share with you the first steps to becoming rich…actually the pre-steps, if you will. So here are the two things to do before you become rich.

Happy Birthday Calls | Networking Tip from Tom Corley’s Rich Habits

Do you want to stand out in a sea of unmemorable faces?

Pick up the phone and wish someone a Happy Birthday.

Rich Habit - Happy Birthday Calls 80% of the rich do this. 89% of the poor don’t. Find out what it is and how to do it here. (Tweet That) | Share this Graphic on Pinterest | Share on Facebook

In his book Rich Habits (buy it, seriously), Tom Corley writes that 80% of the rich make Happy Birthday calls while only 11% of the poor do. Now, this isn’t a direct cause-effect relationship. But I would posit that you have a much better chance of achieving your goals, financial or otherwise, if you make Happy Birthday calls.

Not a Happy Birthday email.

Slaves to Money | Who is More of a Servant? The Poor or Wealthy?

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

-Jesus

You cannot serve two masters

I am a Christian. That means I believe that the words of Jesus are true. I just don’t always believe that the way people interpret His words are true.

Before we go any further, I want to introduce a new feature on some blog posts: An audio blog. You can listen to this post here. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Jesus said in Matthew 6:24 that you cannot serve two masters. Essentially, in reference to money and God, He is calling on His followers to pick a side. You can either be a slave to money or a slave to Him.
