Gary Player, the famous golfer, is said to have declared, “The harder I practice, the luckier I get”. There may be some debate about the origin of the quote, but that does not change the truth of it. Excellence, and wealth, comes from hard work. It may seem that success comes so easily to some. In the vast majority of cases, however, success was achieved by many years of hard work. The truth behind the overnight success is that it took years of hard work to achieve. The first tip from the rich and famous must therefore be that success requires hard work.
How do you spend your time?
A second tip from the rich and famous can be summed up with, spend your time wisely. Time wasted on watching television, playing computer games, or trawling through social media, is time that can never be regained. Apply your energy and time to things where you are learning or creating new opportunities. Reading every day can be both relaxing and can stimulate new ideas. Spend less time talking and more time listening. In this way you can learn new things. Choose the people with whom you spend time wisely. If you surround yourself with people that are always negative and complaining, it is difficult to make positive changes in your life. Wealthy people set themselves goals and they use their time to actively achieve these goals.
How do you spend your money?
Wealthy people advise that you spend within your means. For example, you should only spend money that you have instead of buying things on credit. If there is something that you particularly want, save for it and put in extra work to get it. Wealthy people prioritise where they spend their money, and do not waste it. Of course if you find yourself in debt, it can be very difficult to implement this tip. This may be the result of ill-health, an accident or some unforeseen disaster.
