The phrase ‘the early bird catches the worm’ isn’t lore–it has very real-world repercussions. Most millionaires (and, naturally, billionaires) get their game face on as early as 5:30am.
The biggest marker of a person slated for success? The desire to keep learning. Only the arrogant truly believe they know everything there is to know. The people who know the most, however, always believe there is much more they don’t. Example: Former chairperson and chief executive officer of PepsiCo Indra Nooyi believes that no amount of questions is too many to ask. “I spend so much time on details that from the outside it can seem crazy,” Nooyi told Huxleў in a 2021 interview. “But the details are most important in the management of the organisation. So dig deep. Be curious.
Even though they might seem like risk-takers in every possible way, most millionaires are creatures of habit. Their day usually follows a format; one that optimises for their time and productivity. From an early start to a set bedtime, to designated time for exercise, emails and down-time, most super-successful folks have their day charted out in advance.Mark Cuban has specified times for everything; from cardio to TV. Warren Buffet goes to bed at 10 pm every night, reading for about 30 minutes before sleeping at 10:45pm.
‘Dream’ is a buzzword that is bandied about a lot in motivational speeches, but the most successful people know that the real distinction is not to have dreams, but goals. A dream is a general idea, a wish for something that you desire personally or professionally.
A goal, however, is a clear feat you want to accomplish; and it comes with a path to getting that you need to create. Equally important is setting goals for yourself that are a challenge; that push you a few inches further out of your comfort zone each time.
It takes a village to make a person successful, and anyone who’s got to the top of their field will back that statement up. Not to take away from the hard work of the millionaires that have risen through the ranks, but success is never a single-player game.As Dr. Majid Kazmi, CEO of uGen Group puts it, “It may sound paradoxical, but strength comes from vulnerability. You have to ask the question to get the answer, even though asking the question means you didn't know.”
I think therefore I am.
There’s a lot less that separates you from the average millionaire than you think. I mean, sure, it's a few zeros in your bank balance and a few vintage cars in your garage, but a lot of the people you admire right now started out not too far from where you are.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
