7 Things the Wealthy and Healthy do Everyday!

img_5114.jpgWe can agree choices cause results. You reap what you sow. Bible-believing Christians believe in sowing and reaping—what the world calls cause and effect.

Financial planner and author Tom Corley spent five years observing more than 350 “rich” and “poor” people, how they live, work and even sleep. He captured them all in his book, “Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals.” (He defined “wealthy” as earning at least $160,000 annually and holding at least $3.2 million in assets. “Poor” was income under $30,000 a year and less than $5,000 in assets.)

1.) 70% of wealthy eat less than 300 junk food calories per day. 97% of poor people eat more than 300 junk food calories per day and

2.) 76% of wealthy exercise aerobically four days a week, 23% of poor do this.

This means the majority of wealthy people eat almost no junk food everyday and almost ALL poor people eat more than 300 calories of junk food per day. Healthy eating and exercise would give you more energy and less sick days to work harder and we all know the wealthy and healthy work really hard.

This last decade as a trainer I have learned that the only way a person can change their health habits and behaviors is by choosing better thoughts to focus on. So if you want to change your thoughts, change what information you are allowing into your brain. Countless hours of Internet, Facebook, and TV contributes to obesity and poverty one way or another. In addition, during my decade observing unhealthy people, these were other habits in his book that the healthy and wealthy had in common.

3.) 80% of wealthy are focused on accomplishing some single goal. Only 12% of the poor    do this.

4.) 81% of wealthy maintain a to-do list vs. 19% of poor.

5.) 67% of wealthy watch one hour or less of TV every day vs. 23% of poor

6.) 6% of wealthy watch reality TV vs. 78% of poor

7.) 86% of wealthy love to read vs. 26% of poor.

So be like the wealthy and make daily goals of eating healthy and exercise, limit your computer time and read more books because its not only going to make you more fit but will build good habits for more wealth. Hopefully this helps make your resolutions more attainable and gives guidance on how to achieve health and wealth 2014. It’s never too late to live better!

Love, Gia

  2. This is so true “As a man thinks within himself, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7. This is a real eye-opener isn’t it? Very well done! I saw a distinction in your list of simply being passive and being involved with the world around us. I’m sure your brain is as active as mine is each day – I can tell you live vibrantly alive!! Blessings,
