5 Habits That Made Me a Millionaire by 25….
Practice these five habits to unlock your own financial success.
You don't need superpowers to become a millionaire. Believe me, I became one by the age of 25, and I started from very humble beginnings. When I was a teenager, I began to study rich people: their behavior and what made them more successful than other people.
I found patterns and began to change my habits to align with those of millionaires, later becoming a self-made millionaire myself. Here are the top five habits millionaires share.
1. See the best in every situation
When bad things happen, you can either see the best and stay positive, or let it get you down and distract you from your goals. Being positive is a choice, and it becomes a habit. As a property investor, I am always looking for lucrative investment opportunities. When the market crashes, most people become very negative towards the idea of investing and wait for it to boom.
This is not how millionaires act in a crash: They see the best and find the cheapest deals. In the same way, when it's booming, negative people are skeptical that it won't last, so they do nothing. I again see the opportunity and buy on an upward trend.
This is not just applicable for investments — it's also the case when you see the best in people. Rich people become wealthy because they focus on solutions rather than problems. When you see the best in every situation, you usually get the best results.
2. Stop caring about the opinions of others
Most people spend their entire lives holding back on their dreams because they are afraid of being judged by other people. When I first started buying real estate and went full-time as a property entrepreneur, there were lots of old school friends and even family members who thought I was crazy. They would ask me why I didn't have a “proper job” and warn me of all the risks associated with entrepreneurship.
I thought that once I started making good money, everybody would see the light and cheer me on. Sadly, even after proving my business successful, many friends still judged me and said I was now too “money minded.”
If your friends judge you, how much more will your enemies? In becoming a millionaire, I have had to evict tenants, fire employees and take business from my competition. This has resulted in people calling me far worse things than “money minded.” Sometimes you have to be tough in business. You will not make millions of pounds while trying to please everybody all of the time.
