Most people understand the saying that we are “creatures of habit.” The part they don’t get, however, is that habits come in two forms: doing and not doing. Many of us can think of the things we actively do each day as habits which may be either good or bad.
But, when you don’t do the things you know you should be doing, then you are practicing the often unnoticed habit of simply not doing, which can be just as detrimental. As I tell my clients often, “Stop telling me what you are trying to do. You’re either doing or you’re not doing. There is no in between.”
So, if you aren’t practicing wealthy habits, then more than likely you are practicing un-wealthy, or dare I say, “broke” habits. Once you acknowledge that there is no in between and begin to take action, you can move onward and upward. The choice is ultimately yours.
Here are a few ways to break your “broke” habits and begin creating wealthy ones today:

You’ll be amazed at how opportunities come about and begin to lead you in the direction of your goal.
