So, here are 5 principles that not only work for the elite, but for anyone and everyone who will adopt them for themselves:
- Save money. It’s no coincidence that Warren Buffett is one of the richest people in the world and he still resides in the home he purchased for $31,500 back in 1958. This belief even translates into the way he buys low, and sells high. He saves money in any way he can, and it’s a principle that works.
- Wake up early. It’s also no coincidence that Apple CEO, Tim Cook, and countless others wake up early to get a jump on their day. Their passion for a new day and the work that they do is what helps them wake up early and drives them to accomplish more with their mornings than some do in an entire day.
- Set clear goals. The reason that Tony Robbins is so successful is that he sets goals and accomplishes them. He’s been teaching people how to set goals for themselves for years, and the proof is not only in the results of Tony, but it the lives of the people he teaches, as well.
- Give to others. Oprah knows this principle to be true. Oprah has given millions of dollars to various charities and the generosity isn’t ending anytime soon. You may think that she’s doing it only for the tax write-off, but there’s more to it than that. She’s unlocked the principle of giving, and has seen the return than an open hand and a big heart can have.
- Be determined to succeed. Bill Gates hasn’t always been successful. His first business, Traf-O-Data, didn’t succeed, but he was determined to make something work. So, him and his business partner, Paul Allen, took what they learned with their first company, and started Microsoft. Their determination to find success is what made Microsoft the powerhouse that it is today.
