15 Things Rich People Do Differently

If you’re trying to manifest a life of abundance, you’ve already learned one crucial fact most people miss: that being rich is all about having a certain mindset.

It’s not about luck, or about being the smartest person on the planet—rather, becoming wealthy requires believing, acting and feeling in specific ways that attract abundance.

Here are 15 things that rich people do differently—start doing them, and watch how they can transform your life.

1. They Believe They Create And Control Their Lives

Life doesn’t just “happen” to you. Rich people take full responsibility for their choices, and know that this is a vital first step towards becoming steadily more successful. When things don’t go their way, they look to learn from their difficulties and use those to create more good things going forward.

2. They Aim High

Achieving financial abundance results from big, bold aims—in other words, you have to want to be rich if you’re going to be. When you set a more modest goal like becoming “financially comfortable” then you’re highly unlikely to go further.

3. They Commit To Being Rich

Wishing to be rich or thinking that you’d like to be rich aren’t enough. People who have used the Law of Attraction to manifest wealth will tell you that they fully committed to the idea of being rich—this clarity and determination draw the universe to help you.

4. They Admire Other Successful People

People who are good at manifesting wealth don’t get jealous of those who have more than they do—feelings like jealousy just encourage you to link negative concepts to wealth, meaning that you send out mixed signals about what you really want to attract.

Instead of resentment, rich people feel admiration and inspiration when they notice another person’s success.

5. They Associate With These Inspiring People

As well as using other successful people as guiding models, rich people know they’ll do better in life if they ensure that they’re constantly surrounded by achievement and positivity.

As well as teaching you skills, successful people will constantly remind you that it is possible to turn your dreams into reality.

6. They Engage In Self-Promotion

Were you raised to think that promoting yourself is tasteless and arrogant? If you want to be rich, you’ll need to learn how to be a better promoter, and to even enjoy it.

There is no shame in knowing your own value, and in tactfully helping other people to recognize it as well.

7. They Power Through Problems

Everyone faces peoples—even rich people. The difference is that they know not to give up. Instead, they put their mind to the task of finding a good solution, and they don’t stop until they’ve figured out a way to surmount their obstacle.

8. They Are Happy To Receive

You need to be open to receiving money for your time, products, creativity or whatever else is going to create abundance in your life. If you feel unworthy, or just aren’t sure if you’re worthy, you’re not open enough to expect wealth. Start trying to accept compliments without undermining them—this is great practice for receiving more gracefully in general!

9. They Know It’s Wise To Be Paid For Results

Many rich people will tell you that it’s best to work in a setting where you get paid for your performance (whether this is in your own business, or in a more traditional work setting). This approach can plausibly earn you more in the long run, and can be vastly more motivating.

10. They Have The Best Of Both Worlds

If you want to be a rich person, think “both” instead of “either/or.” Be creative! The next time you feel like you need to choose between two things, take a moment and think about ways you could have both.

11. They Focus On The Idea Of Net Worth

It’s common to assess wealth by considering how much money a person makes annually. However, true wealth is more than this—it concerns your investments, how much you’ve been able to save, your regular cost of living and your income. If you want to be rich, think about how to optimize all four of these aspects.

12. They’re Great At Managing Their Money

This is a more obvious point, but important nonetheless—rich people are serious about managing their money in an effective, honest and consistent way. Be careful about how you use any spare money, keep spending sensible, and avoid excess credit card use wherever possible.

13. They Make Their Money Work For Them

Being rich isn’t just about having money—once it’s saved, you need to invest it, and do so wisely. Passive income makes you wealthier all the time, to great effect, so start early and keep at it!

14. They Don’t Let Fear Stop Them

Incredibly successful people get scared sometimes too, but you need to be able to push past this to feelings of confidence and excitement if you’re going to manifest your best life. Using techniques like affirmations can help here—anything that keeps your mind on a positive track and reminds you of your faith in your intentions.

15. They Constantly Engage In Self-Development

Finally, rich people know that it is through learning and growing that they will become more and more accomplished. Read, take advice, constantly work to gain more self-knowledge, and you’ll attract increasing levels of abundance in response.
