Intelligence, talent and charm are great, but more often than not these aren t what separate the wealthiest among us from the poorest. Instead, the differences are in our daily habits. Do you realize that these subconscious, second-nature activities make up 40 percent of our waking hours? That means that two out of every five minutes, all day and every day, we operate on autopilot. It s true: Habits are neural pathways stored in the basal ganglia, a golf ball-size mass of tissue right in the center of our brains, in the limbic system. This neural fast lane is meant to save the brain energy:

They got to talking and the dealer told Herb that hed grown tired of traveling to his Mitsubishi franchise in Rhode Island every month to review the month-end financials and create the budget for the following month. He was looking for a downloader and Herb eagerly jumped at the opportunity. He had long dreamed of owning his own store, of running his dealership the way he believed a dealership ought to run, making his own rules, and reaping his own rewards.
He wanted to be one of the big boys and he saw this opportunity as his long-awaited break. The first few months in his newly owned car dealership were slow, but that didnt shake Herbs resolve. He attributed the low sales numbers to the ownership transition and was confident that things would soon pick up.
He even decided to roll up his sleeves and show his sales team how selling was done by a pro. The numbers picked up a bit, but not the way Herb anticipated. He continued selling day after day, month after month, but sales came hard. Herb had trouble adjusting to his expanded responsibilities of ownership. Cash flow problems began to occupy more of his time.
He found himself visiting banks with increased frequency to add new lines of credit, or strike new floor plan financing arrangements. He spent more time in bank offices than he was spending on the floor of his own showroom, further exacerbating his cash-flow problems.
Herb was his own best salesman, even though his numbers paled in comparison to the production he had enjoyed as a salesman at other dealerships. Juggling management responsibilities along with sales was proving too much. Herb got out of his car and stepped into the cold night air. Now he stood on the porch of his home feeling like an intruder, the person who was about to come in and shatter his familys world.
He couldnt do it, not just yet. Herb sat down in the old wicker rocking chair on the porch and collected his thoughts. He wasnt ready. Herb was not a student of the auto industry. For him the business of running a car dealership was all about one thing: sales. Customers were merely prospects to be conquered. Overcome objections at all costs, he often told other salesman.
The customer doesnt make a decision to download; we do that for them. Thats our job. Oftentimes, and reluctantly, the owner at Herbs last dealership had to act as a mediator on behalf of a customer who felt they were being treated rudely by Herb.
His boss knew Herb could sell, that was clear from the numbers, but Herb didnt really understand the bigger picture. Herb, were not interested in just the sale. We want these customers for life and we want their kids, and their kids kids.
This dealership goes to great lengths to provide them with the products they want and the quality service they can expect from us. Without them and their continued business wed be finished.
You are by far the best salesman I have ever had, but sometimes you focus solely on the sale and you forget that there is a whole lot more to making money here than just selling a car, Herbs boss explained in a private meeting after a customer felt particularly bullied by Herbs aggressive selling techniques.
Herbs hand rested on the front-door handle. His fingers gripped the knob. He closed his eyes and let the sound of laughter fill his ears, letting his forehead fall to the door. He sniffed once, the tip of his nose burning in the cold night air, and pushed open the front door.
Youre late tonight; I saved you a plate. Herb slid out of his coat and hung it in the foyer, carefully tucking his gloves into the pocket. He reluctantly strolled into the kitchen and sank into one of the chairs around the table. His wife was putting together his dinner, but he wasnt hungry. You all right? Normally, when he arrived home he was more animated, happy to be home with his family after the long workday. I have to tell you something, Herb said. He would do this quickly. He took a deep breath and began.
What are we going to do? Her face was blank and her eyes fixed somewhere faraway. Herb couldnt bear to look at her.
How will we pay the mortgage? She began to cry and Herbs heart was breaking. Upstairs he could hear his children stomping around their bedrooms, boisterous and lively. Downstairs the kitchen was filled with sobbing.
Somehow, Herb dragged himself out of bed the next morning. In the mirror he could see his reflection shave, brush his reflections teeth, and run a comb through his reflections hair. He felt like he was watching someone else from a million miles away. When he got to his dealership it didnt take long for his staff to sense that something was wrong.
He was desperately trying to think his way out of this whole mess, but for all his thinking, he kept coming up short. Numerous calls to his banker went unanswered and unreturned. The floor was quiet most of the day. Very few prospects walked through the showroom and the service department closed early that evening due to a lack of business. When most of the staff had departed, Herb came down from his upstairs office and began his nightly ritual of closing the shop.
A woman in her mid-fifties walked through the front doors just as Herb was making his way from the service desk toward the showroom to lock up. Herb was slightly startled, seeing her standing by the reception desk. May I help you? Herb asked in a melancholy tone. Im looking for a car for my daughter. She is graduating from Brown next month and I was hoping to surprise her, the woman gushed.
Do you have any convertibles? For a moment, the salesman in Herb stirred, but he suppressed the urge. Im sorry; I wont be able to help you. Well, how about an SUV then? It doesnt necessarily have to be a convertible.
Herb stared at the woman and felt himself shrinking. I mean I wont be able to sell you any car because I wont be able to provide service support. I dont understand. Herb swallowed hard before continuing, After this month, we will most likely no longer be in business, Im afraid.
Herbs eyes dropped from her face to the floor, ashamed. We wont be here to service your daughters car or provide any follow-up support. Im very sorry. I cant help anyone.
Herb tried to usher the woman towards the door, but she didnt move. Wait, she said, taking a step towards him, a look of compassion blanketed her face.
Tell me what happened? Herb looked at her, startled by the request, and considered it for a moment. He figured he had nothing to lose at that point. Why not? Herb offered her a chair at a nearby desk and spilled the whole story. He held nothing back. He was brutally honest about his failings. Unknown to Herb, his bankruptcy story was a familiar one to the woman, who had gone through her own bankruptcy a long, long time ago.
What is your name?
Herb Riser, he shook his head, embarrassed, before offering his hand. He had told this woman his whole sad story before even exchanging introductions. Im Susan Changer, she replied, shaking firmly. Id like to help you. You want to help me? Herb replied in disbelief. Susan repeated the words someone said to her many years ago, Im just a person looking in a very old mirror.
Susan began to share her own story of failure and the redemption she received from an individual by the name of J. Here is J. I want you to call them in the morning. Just let them know I sponsored you. That gets you into the next training session for free.
They shook hands and parted ways. Herb eyed the phone number as Susan walked out the doors of his dealership. Who is this J. I sure do hope he can perform miracles, because thats what I need. A miracle. With his eyes still closed and his hands unconsciously wrapped around the piece of paper with J.
Jobs number on it, Herb looked as if he was praying. His was the last rose. With that final act, the crowd of mourners began to disburse and the accountant was now alone with his three young children, standing over Denises casket, staring mindlessly into the open grave and loathing himself. Its called cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, Denise had said. She had sat down at the kitchen table and poured him a fresh cup of coffee.
The coffee sat steaming between them, untouched. The doctor recommended surgery to correct the disorder. He stared nervously at her. The sun fell across the table in wide slats, angled through the blinds. Beyond the glass he could see a cloudless blue sky stretching across the backyard. Suddenly he felt like he was falling from that sky, endlessly falling. Denise looked calm, as though she was going over a grocery list with him.
Denise never fumbled. Even though this was a very serious matter, she had a way of dealing with the illness in a relaxed, calm manner. Denise had always been the pragmatic, rational one, in control in the relationship.
She hardly ever got worked up the way he did. Instead, these successful people use their free time engaged in personal development, networking, volunteering, working side jobs or side businesses , or pursuing some goal that will lead to rewards down the road. But 77 percent of those struggling financially spend an hour or more a day watching TV, and 74 percent spend an hour or more a day using the internet recreationally.
Not every thought needs to come out of your mouth. Not every emotion needs to be expressed. When you say whatever is on your mind, you risk hurting others.
Loose lips are a habit for 69 percent of those who struggle financially. Conversely, 94 percent of wealthy people filter their emotions. They understand that letting emotions control them can destroy relationships at work and at home. Fear is perhaps the most important negative emotion to control. Any change, even positive changes such as marriage or a promotion, can prompt feelings of fear.
Wealthy people have conditioned their minds to overcome these thoughts, while those who struggle financially give in to fear and allow it to hold them back.
Whether you fear change, making mistakes, taking risks or simply failure, conquering these emotions is about leaning in just a little until you build up confidence. Almost three-quarters of wealthy people network and volunteer a minimum of five hours a month.
Among those struggling financially, only one in 10 does this. Very often the boards and committees of nonprofits are made up of wealthy, successful people.
Developing personal relationships with these folks will often result in future business relationships. Consequently, they are never given more responsibility, and their wages grow very little from year to year—if they keep their jobs at all.
Wealthy individuals, on the other hand, make themselves invaluable to their employers or customers, writing articles related to their industry, speaking at industry events and networking. Successful people work hard to achieve the mutual goals of their employers or their businesses.
You cannot control the outcome of a wish, but you can control the outcome of a goal. Every year, 70 percent of the wealthy pursue at least one major goal. Only 3 percent of those struggling to make ends meet do this. Successful people understand that procrastination impairs quality; creates dissatisfied employers, customers or clients; and damages other nonbusiness relationships. Here are five strategies that will help you avoid procrastination:. A 5-to-1 ratio is about right: You should listen to others five minutes for every one minute that you speak.
Wealthy people are good communicators because they are good listeners. They understand that you can learn and educate yourself only by listening to what other people have to say. The more you learn about your relationships , the more you can help them. We are only as successful as the people we spend the most time with. Of wealthy, successful people, 86 percent associate with other successful people.
If you want to end your financial struggles , you need to evaluate each of your relationships and determine if they are a Rich Relationship with someone who can help you up or a Poverty Relationship with someone holding you back. Start spending more and more time on your Rich Relationships and less on your Poverty Relationships. Rich Relationships can help you find a better job, refer new business to you or open doors of opportunity.
Those who are successful in life have three things in common: They simply do not quit chasing their big goals. Those who struggle financially stop short. Rich people have good luck and poor people have bad luck. I fail at everything I try.
Each one of these self-limiting beliefs alters your behavior in a negative way. Almost four out of five wealthy people attribute their success in life to their beliefs. Change your negative beliefs into positive affirmations by reading lessons from the greats of personal development, like Napoleon Hill , Dale Carnegie and Jim Rohn.
Erase Self-Limiting Beliefs. Mentors regularly and actively participate in your growth by teaching you what to do and what not to do.
Finding such a teacher is one of the best and least painful ways to become rich.
If you know your goals, find someone who has already achieved them. Those struggling financially in life have a way of creating bad luck for themselves. Poverty Habits, repeated over and over are like snowflakes on a mountainside. In time, these snowflakes build up until the inevitable avalanche—a preventable medical problem, a lost job, a failed marriage, a broken business relationship or a bankruptcy. Conversely, successful people create their own unique type of good luck.
