Tom Corley points out that when you pursue success, the emotional downturns are about ninety five percent of what you have to contend with. He maintains that, due to this, it's your vision, your dream and your passion that will ultimately keep you in the game. He should know this as all his books to date, have focused on the idea of rich habits.
Tom, who is getting better known as an author and a speaker, is a CPA, a CFP and he holds a Masters Degree in taxation. He's the president of Cerefice and Company, a CPA firm and he also has the Rich Habits Institute. Tom's latest book focuses on the science of habit change, as well as on his own research on habits that helped to transform one hundred and seventy seven ordinary individuals into self made millionaires. Today, he talks to Kate about his latest book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life.
Tom talks to Kate about:
•How he selected the particular group that he studied for his book.
•Some habits that he observed with the self-made millionaires.
•That you will quit in business if you're pursuing profit, not passion. If you're pursuing passion, you will engage.
•The idea of growing- how you grow and where growth takes place.
•How he surrounds himself with people who really get what he does.
•Three things to ensure your success: 1) Pursue your dream 2) Read every day 3) Surround yourself with like minded people, who get you.
•How it disrupts the 'herd' when one of them pulls away to do something unique or different, so they try to stop them, rather than trying to change themselves.
•What he has found in his research about people having grown up with issues of poverty and poor education.
•A story to demonstrate the difference between how rich and poor kids are raised and how changing their habits can change this.
•That close to 85% of the poverty in America is due to negligent parenting.
•That his second (award-winning) book, Rich Kids, was written to educate the educators.
