This habit makes it difficult to get rich, stay away from it if you want to be successful! Lifestyle – 12 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Being smart at making money cannot lock the path to wealth. Even being smart about managing your finances cannot ensure that you will become rich in the future.

There are a number of small behaviors in everyday life that will actually become a burden when you have a lot of money. The CNBC Indonesia team has summarized from various sources 10 habits that are proven to keep you away from success:

1. Ignoring health

“When it comes to health, a poor lifestyle can lead to dangerous health problems,” writes Thomas Corley in the book “Change Your Habits, Change Your Life: Strategies that Transformed 177 Average People into Self-Made Millionaires.”


When you are unhealthy, you become tired more quickly, less productive, more stressed, and more susceptible to illness. How can you focus on building wealth if you have to battle health problems every day?

2. Lots of debt

As you already know, some consumer debts have high interest. This can make you further away from your dream of becoming rich because debt can threaten your finances. So, from now on, try to pay off every high-interest debt you have and try not to get into debt again after it’s all over.

3. Not being aware of small expenses

You might think that spending IDR 20,000 every day for a cup of coffee at a coffee shop has no effect on your wallet. Not to mention if you buy coffee more than once a day.

These small habits are what make it difficult for you to become rich. For this reason, start paying attention to your needs and refrain from buying small things that you don’t really need.

4. Follow other people’s lifestyles

Try to have a lifestyle that suits your finances. Don’t force yourself to follow other people’s lifestyles because this will make your financial condition worse.

5. Often makes excuses

Excuses are one of the biggest obstacles to achieving wealth. For example, you could say that “life is to be enjoyed.” Then you use that principle as an excuse to have fun and not allocate some of your income to saving or investing. If you’re not making enough money, find another source of income.

6. Always think negatively

Please note, successful people are people who can see the positive side in negative conditions. This shows that you are an optimistic person and always willing to try.

Usually people who think negatively will find it difficult to try new things because they only think about the worst risks. They don’t dare to move forward and this is what prevents you from becoming rich.

7. Lazy

Laziness will never produce good results. If you want to achieve something, you have to be willing to work and try hard. If you are just lazy, you will not find the door to success that can make you rich.

8. Mourning failure for too long

Successful entrepreneurs make failure a badge of honor. However, this doesn’t mean they enjoy it or want to fail. Failing in business and losing almost everything is painful, but you shouldn’t keep lamenting about the failure. Take risks, and if you fail, learn from the mistake and move on.

9. Hanging out with the wrong people

You have to be selective in choosing who you associate with and build relationships with. Instead of hanging out with toxic people, make friends with those who are optimistic, motivating, and supportive.

“In life, you will only be successful if you surround yourself with the right people,” says Corley.

10. Having no future plans

Not having a plan for the future means you are wasting many opportunities to become rich. As time goes by, lifeline patterns must be planned well in advance to face uncertain economic situations.
