You don’t need superpowers to become a millionaire. Believe me, I became one by the age of 25, and I started from very humble beginnings. When I was a teenager, I began to study rich people: their behavior and what made them more successful than other people.
I found patterns and began to change my habits to align with those of millionaires, later becoming a self-made millionaire myself. Here are the top five habits millionaires share.
1. See the best in every situation
When bad things happen, you can either see the best and stay positive, or let it get you down and distract you from your goals. Being positive is a choice, and it becomes a habit. As a property investor, I am always looking for lucrative investment opportunities. When the market crashes, most people become very negative towards the idea of investing and wait for it to boom.
This is not how millionaires act in a crash: They see the best and find the cheapest deals. In the same way, when it’s booming, negative people are skeptical that it won’t last, so they do nothing. I again see the opportunity and buy on an upward trend.
This is not just applicable for investments — it’s also the case when you see the best in people. Rich people become wealthy because they focus on solutions rather than problems. When you see the best in every situation, you usually get the best results.
