Been rich is everyone’s dream but the fact is everyone has to find his/her own path to wealthiness. So a good question to ask yourself is – “what am I doing to be rich?”
A reality is that most people who have consistently remained wealthy for long time share a lot things in common, while those who got wealthy out of luck haven’t really being able to maintain their wealth. This simply go on to tell you that there’s a great disparity between the habits of a rich man and a poor man.
However, this post contains a compilation of six (6) habits you need to stop if you want to be richer. Read carefully and learn.
1. Not taking risks.
If you pay close attention to the life of most rich people, you’ll realise that most of them are risk takers. In fact, most of have taken risks that has led to big failures. So, if you plan to get rich, always take risks.
2. Watching reality TV shows.

Summary, if you want to be richer, spend more time on profitable things.
3. Waking up late.
Rich people always wake up early to plan for the day’s activities as well as do little little exercises.
Please note that waking up early doesn’t mean you won’t have enough sleep. Normally, rich people sleep for 7 to 8hours, from 9pm or 10pm.
4. Spending Excessively.
The truth is that poor people are always in competition with their peers. They always want to get expensive phones, clothes, shoes, and cars, even though they know they can’t afford it freely. On the contrary, wealthy people have a planned system if spending their income, they have a stipulated amount of money they spend on food, savings, education, entertainment, clothes, medicine, etc.
5. Believing in fate.
Please I am not saying you shouldn’t believe in fate, but there should be a limit to that assumption. The truth is luck is a result of hard work and opportunity. Most poor people blame their situation to fate, and other conditions beyond their control. In fact most of them participate in lotteries, gambling, and so on. Please this believe should stop because most rich people are hardworking.
6. Not reading.
Like Jim Rohn’s saying “Reading is essential for those who seek to rise above the ordinary.” So, when you don’t read, you’re not likely to to think efficiently. Rich people read books on how to develop themselves, they read professional materials, in fact, they read books that shed light on historical events. On the contrary, poor people don’t like reading.
