3 Habits of a Billionaires

Steven Truong found this, the source is from Escape From Pianosa. I thought it was valuable enough to share with everyone.  

Forbes.com interviewed several of this year’s top billionaires, and as I was reading through some of them, I noticed three things that repeated over and over again:

1. Exercise daily.

2. Follow your passion.

3. Read. A lot. At least two hours a day, but many said they read four or more hours a day.



The reading is the key point, read more, I think I need to do some more reading this week.  If anyone needs to read this week its me. Looks like readers group voted on: Secrets of the Millionaire Mind: Mastering the Inner Game of Wealth

  • I guess if you’re a billionaire you can afford to read 2 hours / day. Right now, I need to spend that time working! Oh well, 1 out of 3 isn’t bad – I do exercise daily.

  • Hmm… does #3 mean “Learn. Alot?”

    I watch videos and read quite a bit..

    Good list.. I feel like a billionaire already.. lol

  • Well 2 out of 3 for me, not to bad…lol

  • I think billionaires understand the importance of keeping them selves educated and informed. Which is why they know when to act and how to act on a new deal.

  • These all make sense:

    1. Exercise daily.
    -keep your body in tip top shape and your mind healthy
    2. Follow your passion.
    -work towards or for something
    3. Read. A lot. At least two hours a day, but many said they read four or more hours a day.
    -keep your mind active, sharp, and ready for opportunity

    They also all work hand in hand:
    If you only exercise and read, you aren’t necessarily following your passion.
    If you read and follow your passion, as years pass you will get out of shape and fatigued easily.

  • You left out female companionship, I *do not* mean let a girl whip you to the point that you tell her everything etc. I mean it’s good to let off the steam once in a while so it doesn’t interfere with entrepreneurial efforts.

    Just don’t get the habits of some billionaires like Gates or Buffett; these two are not even real people any longer. It’s already obvious that you aren’t like Gates(Prosper202). Buffett is sooo weird that he no longer registers as human.

  • I do all that stuff and I still don’t have a billion.

    Also – damn dude, you update less than I do.

    Hit me up sometime.
