So I was inspired today by an article I read on Yahoo that was titled “A man who studied rich people for 5 years found that they avoid one type of person”.
What was most interesting in it was….After researching the daily habits of wealthy people for five years, author Thomas Corely found that they avoid one type of person at all costs: pessimists.
“Self-made millionaires are very particular about who they associate with,” Corley writes in his book, “Change Your Habits Change Your Life” “You are only as successful as those you frequently associate with.
The most abundant of us all are on the look out for those around us that are goal oriented optimistic, enthusiastic, and who have an overall positive mental outlook.
Eighty-six percent of the wealthy people in his study made a habit out of associating with other success-minded individuals. On the flip side, “they also make a point to limit their exposure to toxic, negative people,” he explains.
“Long-term success is only possible when you have a positive mental outlook,” Corley states.
Now as you know, and we do too here at The Abundance Project……He’s not the only one to suggest that negativity derails success — or that your relationships could affect your financial success.
Avoiding pessimists and having an overall positive outlook on life is something that we constantly write and rave about.
In fact the article continues to introduce Napoleon Hill and his book “Think and Grow Rich” that was written in 1937. In it Hill writes “Men take on the nature and the habits and the power of thought of those with who they associate” and “there is no hope of success for the person who repels people through a negative personality.”
