1) The rich expand their income streams
Like Warren Buffett said ‘never depend on single income’. Branch out and invest. Find ways of investing in real estate, infrastructure, shares of a company. Rich people never depend on one source of income because if in case anything happens to that source, the entire earnings will be affected. So it is wise to have alternate sources.

2) There is always a plan

Could you ever imagine Steve Jobs without a goal in mind?? Write down your goals, predict the future you want. It is said that writing down goals helps us, subconsciously, get closer to achieving them than just keeping them in the back of our minds and pretending like things will just fall into place on their own. Putting it on paper makes it happen!

3) Time is precious to them
Time is money, Period. We have this nasty habit of forgetting that time once lost is gone. While some of us wile away time by watching television, millionaires read business strategies or work on new projects. They seek thrill and entertainment by thinking about their plans and use their time productively.

4) They look up to others
. Rich people always have mentors to look up to. Be it kin or kith or individuals who have achieved success, knowing there is someone who can teach you ropes of the game always keeps your mind alert and there is always something to learn from them too

5) Dreaming is for winners
Never give up on your dreams. Dreaming is aiming towards a better future.. Money follows the happy and you will be happy only when you toil to make your dreams come true. The rich always follow their dreams no matter the hurdles, the failures and full stops. They keep it going.

6) They are always persistent enough
Persistency is the key. They always get what they want and how do you think that happens? They insist on the right kind of deals, they insist on plans that they are sure will work even if people tell them they are wrong. Persistency is not arrogance. It is a habit that reflects determination and it will go a long way.

7) They track every small step
It is important to track your progress at every step. When you track your progress, you know whether you are going in a right direction or not. Track your success and failures and you’ll be closer to your goals than you know!

8) The rich always surround themselves with the intellects
Surround yourself with successful people, people who have achieved their goals at a young age and are still continuing to make it big. Their enthusiasm will encourage you to try harder and work better.

9) They wake up early
This is a habit that has done wonders for a lot of success-driven people. You might love your bed but while you’re lazing around, goal driven people are waking up at 5am and going for jogging and keeping themselves healthy.
