Success no longer has to be a secret passed down among only the elite and the wealthy.

Below are a few paragraphs which will give you a brief insight into what the book is about. It is a must read and should be added to your personal development library. There is so much beneficial information in this book, it will transform your life by making you evaluate your daily habits so that you may align them to success so that you may live your dreams.
“Habits, by their very definition, are persistent routines. When you adopt good habits, they help you grow your skills and knowledge. Good daily habits enable you to focus every day on pursuing success. They put success on autopilot. Each good habit you add to your life has a cumulative effect. They are like an investment in your individual success. The key is to get your personal habit seesaw tipping in the right direction, with your rich habits outweighing your poor habits. Getting control of your habits is empowering. It gives you a sense of control over your life. Your new habits will not only put you on the path to success, they will also put you on the path to happiness.”
“Habits include both physical and mental behavior. These daily habits unconsciously control our lives. Our daily habits, as boring as they may be, are the secret to success, failure, or mediocrity. Our habitual behaviors, both physical and mental, and the choices we make are the cause of wealth and poverty. Those who learn good daily habits from their parents, a mentor, or through the school of hard knocks, excel in life. Their lives are outstanding. They rule the world. They command respect, make most of the money in this world, and control the lives of millions who do not have good daily habits. Our daily habits are the reason we live in a beach house or a slum.”
“Script your life: Self- made millionaires do not stumble into success. They are not passive beneficiaries of some incredible stroke of good luck. The journey toward success always starts with a vision. A vision of the person you want to be and the life you want to have for yourself and your family.”
“Sixty-one percent of the self-made millionaires in my study engaged in something I call ‘dream setting’. Dream-setting involves scripting your ideal future life. In this process, you define your future life, the future you, by imagining all of your dreams coming true; then you put it to paper in five hundred to a thousand words. The future letter toggles on the reticular activating system (RAS) as well as the hippocampus. Once your turn on the RAS and the hippocampus, they go to work, behind the scenes, searching for ways to attract what you desire in your new, future life.”
“Maintain a positive mental outlook: Long-term success is only possible when you have a positive mental outlook. Positivity was a hallmark of all the self-made millionaires. Forty-three percent believed they would one day be rich. Seventy-nine percent believed they were the cause of their circumstances in life. Most of us are completely unaware of our thoughts. If you stop to listen to your thoughts, to be aware of them, you’d find most of them are negative. But you only realize you are having these negative thoughts when your force yourself to be aware of them. Awareness is the key.”
“Pursue your passion: One of the common threads among all of the self-made millionaires in my study was a passion for what they did for a living. They were among the fortunate few who found their calling in life. Every wealthy entrepreneur in my study who realized incredible wealth also had passion. Passion changes your beliefs about yourself. It infuses you with energy, persistence, focus, and patience. Each one of the wealthy entrepreneurs in my study had an intense desire to realize their dreams. They had a never-ending focus on achieving their dreams. They did not let obstacles get in their way. They believed in themselves. Their passion made miracles happen.”
