Habits of the rich…what are they and why they work.
Most billionaires have a vision of what they think the world will be like in the future and how they can capitalize on it. It’s clear and they stick with it. Even if there are 100 other people telling them it will not work.
One thing virtually all billionaires have in common is that they are willing to take a leap of faith in their pursuit of success. For some billionaires such as Bill Gates or Lawrence Ellison, this might be dropping out of college to pursue a business opportunity.
Not only do billionaires tend to be able to pounce when the moment’s right, they also make patience a habit. After all, sometimes it takes a while for a good idea to pay off.
For example Amazon.com It took seven years before the company turned a profit, plust it was a major coup after the dotcom crash, which left many wondering whether an online business model was viable at all.
Being where you’re supposed to be when you’re supposed to be there, as promised, without exception, without excuse, every time, all the time. I cannot tell you how important I believe this is. But I’ll tell you some of the reasons why I believe in its indescribably great importance. Being punctual gives you the right—the positioning—to expect and demand that others treat your time with the utmost respect. You cannot reasonably hope to have others treat your time with respect if you show little or no respect for theirs. So if you’re not punctual, you have no leverage, no moral authority. But the punctual person gains that advantage over staff, associates, vendors, clients, everybody.
