Shared characteristic of high net worth individuals

Ever wondered how successful people become successful ?our CEO Nigel Green wrote a blog on this and it’s shows you a few pointers .

I would only add :

– Motivation : successful people are self motivated and motivate others around them , enthusiasm is one of the most infectious characteristics . Only time you loose is the time you give up , most people I’ve up before trying .

– POSITIVITY / optimistic : This is one of my personal favourite ,

For myself I am an optimist – it does not seem to be much use being anything else. Sir Winston Churchill

– They do what they enjoy ! So if you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, in all likelihood it’s safe to assume that will be reflected in the success, my person view is how can you call “work” if you enjoy it , it like saying going to a football match is work !

-Invest in yourself : top individuals read books , consume news & knowledge with such an appetite . Why ? Knowledge is power ? No , applied knowledge is power .

Stay positive and continue succeeding .

Shared characteristic of high net worth individuals

Success is never, or perhaps I should say should never, be exclusively measured in terms of how much money someone has. However, undeniably and quite rightly, most people do seek to become wealthier in order to enjoy the benefits that financial freedom can bring to themselves and their families – and indeed their heirs in years to come.

Throughout my career, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet many people who have become incredibly wealthy and there are some distinct traits that they all appear to have in common. Here are just a selection:

Self-belief: These people understand that they have the power to become wealthy. They expect knock-backs and moments when things go wrong, but equally they know that they have all they need to achieve financial success. It’s in their hands. They genuinely believe that it is perfectly possible that they can become wealthy, as much as the person standing next to them. Belief in themselves and belief in the industry they are in is vital.

The ability to plan: To be in with the greatest chance of making a success of anything in life you need to have a carefully-devised, long-term plan, and if it’s going well, you need to stick to it – and planning your financial strategy is no exception and this is something high net worth individuals generally appreciate. People don’t plan to fail, they simply fail to plan.

Proactive: Wealthy people who have made their money themselves haven’t got it by sitting on their backsides. They have taken decisive action to move forward in making it happen. They have stopped procrastinating and finding reasons why they couldn’t or shouldn’t take the first or next step, meaning the plan of action isn’t pushed way into the indefinite future. All successful people I know have a sense of urgency.

Discipline: Generally speaking, self-made high net worth individuals understand that a degree of discipline is essential. You need discipline in sticking to your plan and working hard at it, discipline to save, and discipline to sometimes delay instant gratification for the later rewards.

There are, of course, many other common characteristics that I’ve observed over the years, and I look forward to sharing more of them with you shortly.

“Talent hits a target no one else can hit; genius hits a target no one else can see.”

Talent hits a target no one else can hit; genius hits a target no one else can see.

I was reading this quote and thought this is what makes the difference between extraordinary and ordinary , ability to see outside our known reality .

Christopher Columbus sailed a flat earth to prove it wasn’t.

Black swan perfect example , our reality today will change , if you want to be ahead of it think of it yourself .

iPad a norm for many people these days 10 years ago wasn’t event a reality ,

What we think we become .

Have a cracking end to the day ,
