10 Most Richest Successful People And Their 10 Highly Successful Habits

Aside from the random element of luck and much of what makes some people successful involves the cultivating of certain habits. Learning what these habits are or how to employ them in our own life is worthwhile.

To that end, here are 10 Most Richest Successful People And Their 10 Highly Successful Habits.

 

Reading

It’s very important to note that successful people read. While they are also read for pleasure and most use their reading habit as a means to gain knowledge or insight.

For anyone who needs inspiration about the value or importance of reading, look no further than the example of billionaire author, J.K. Rowling, who says she read “anything” as a child. She advises, “Read as much as you possibly can. Nothing will help you as much as reading.”

1. Jeff Bezos, $121.2 Billion

The former hedge fund manager turned online book seller started Amazon in his garage in 1994. Bezos has invested heavily in space technology and also owns The Washington Post newspaper.

 

 

Habits – Relaxation

It’s interesting to note that relaxing – by meditating or simply avoiding distractions – is another of the most-often mentioned habits of successful people.

2. Bill Gates, $111.5 Billion

A permanent fixture at the top of Forbes’ list for the past 20 years, the Microsoft founder has sold or given away much of his stake in the company – he owns just 1% of Microsoft – and now focuses predominantly on his philanthropic work.

 

Habits – Organization

One of the most frequently mentioned habits of those who are successful in life is organization. Such organization includes planning as well as setting priorities and goals.

Joel Brown, the founder of Addicted2Success, calls for a prioritized “To-Do List” every evening before going to bed to prepare for the next day.

According to Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, Sunday is an important day for organization and a time to “get ready for the rest of the week.”

3. Bernard Arnault, $105.5 Billion

Arnault is the wealthiest European on the list. The Frenchman oversees an empire of more than 60 brands including Louis Vuitton and Sephora.

Successful people act – quickly and often. In addition, although it may sound counter-intuitive, according to James Clear, they act (start, anyway) before they feel ready. While others come up with reasons not to act, successful people take that all-important first step – even if it seems outlandish.

 

4. Warren Buffett, $87 Billion

Now in his ninth decade, the Berkshire Hathaway chief executive, known as the “Oracle of Omagh” is one of the most successful investors of all time. Like Gates he has pledged to give away more than 99% of his fortune to charity.

 

Personal care with regard to diet, exercise, and hygiene comes next on the list of habits of those who are successful.

 

 

5. Mark Zuckerberg, $72.5 Billion

Zuckerberg started Facebook in 2004 at the age of 19 and now is among the top five richest men in the world.

 

According to many successful people, having a positive attitude is not just a result of being successful – it’s one of the root causes of success.

 

6. Amancio Ortega, $71.8 Billion

Ortega stepped down as chairman of Inditex, known for its Zara brand, in 2011 but he still owns nearly 60% of its shares.
