5 Daily Habits Keeping You From Getting Rich


Thomas C. Corley, the author of “Change Your Habits, Change Your Life”, spent five years researching about the lives of both rich people and the poor people. In his context, rich people earn an annual income of $160,000 or more while the poor earn $35,000 or less. He then differentiated the habits of both categories which he detailed in his new book. This post will highlight the five daily habits keeping you from getting rich.
