Although there are many “how-to” guides, articles and visual content created with the sole purpose of helping people find success, achieving and maintaining financial success is quite simple.
Read our compilation of healthy habits below that can help you on your journey to becoming a High Net Worth Individual, or if that is already the case, maintaining your status.
Knowledge is Power
It’s simple, one major way to gain knowledge is to make it a habit to read. This is a daily habit that most, if not all millionaires, have in common. Reading helps you grow in knowledge, and learning makes you productive in the sense that you will become wiser and make better choices.
Different sources show that self-made HNWI’s read at least 3 books per month. For instance, Warren Buffet, who’s 89 years of age and currently worth $87 billion, spends the majority of the day reading and yes, he’s been reading most of his life.
Finding something productive to read, something that “pulls” you, will help you to improve yourself. Perhaps a topic on life-hacks, examples of successful businessmen and how they became successful investors, and also following current events that may affect your finances.
Have Multiple Sources of Passive Income
All HNWI’s share another important habit, they don’t depend on single income sources but have multiple sources of passive income. This helps them manage their economic challenges and ultimately increases their net worth.
The knowledge they’ve gained from reading and learning, gives them the ability to handle their finances on their own and know how to earn interests from loans, rental income from real estate industries, dividends from investments and even know how and when to invest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin.
HNWI’s find ways to produce multiple streams of passive income, as these are one of the most successful ways to build your net worth and be financially successful.
Manage your Debts
Even HNWI’s manage their debts and control their outgoings. They avoid living extravagant lifestyles and ensure they don’t exceed their weekly or monthly budgets. They purchase what they need most of the time, not what they want.
One thing they have in common is the habit of paying for most things in cash to avoid any interest rates. This shows that HNWI’s are conscious of this and saves them money.
Establish a Weekly or Monthly Budget
As mentioned previously, HNWI’s have themselves a fixed weekly or monthly budget and they stick to it as their lives depended on it. Their knowledge and experiences make them understand how to handle their income better and so they minimize unnecessary expenses.
By doing so also, you will avoid overspending and help your budget, ultimately improving the control you have on your financial life.
Set Weekly or Monthly Goals
Setting weekly or monthly goals in regards to your career or financial status is good because it puts you in a program. Likewise, HNWI’s successful habit of setting short term goals helps them organise and make weekly or monthly plans to generate momentum in accomplishing their long term goals.
Your goals should have a set priority in order to achieve the important things in life. For example, if you’re looking to maintain a millionaire status, your aim should be to pursue highly rewarding activities that help you earn thousands of dollars instead of hundreds.
