    Survey is like a Bikini...
    What they reveal arouses extreme excitement, especially in men,
    but usually also leaves him feel much frustrated,
    and wanting to see what is hidden behind the hype! :)

    Btw, what was the sample size, and where was the survey conducted? ;)

    I don't believe the statistics. 90% of statistics are made-up, and the other 15% are lies.

    Had an, albeit, quick look at the website of Corley's. Seems to be several blog posts of similar ilk. No doubt there is a grain of truth to many of the points, but if one wants to be an "authority" on the topic, they ought to have links or references to sources. Short of that, it gives the sense that they are "made up".

    In the bikini pic, we focussed on the girl because thats what we thought was important to us. Those who noticed the king kong can suck that animal's tits instead. ;-) Similarly, the percentage is not important in the OP's survey. What is important is the things that rich are spending their time doing. Waking up early, exercising, eating healthy, reading, thinking positively, being social, developing good habits and teaching the same to their next generation. These are all good things and will definitely increase your chances of living a more fullfilled life. But all the above are neither "NECESSARY" nor "SUFFICIENT".

    just few years ago in my origin country they made a questionnaire about: How happy they are in life and job?
    guess what: It turns out that only good earnings "Manager" has been asked!!!
    Any more questions about statistics?

    be safe
    peace

    Most people just don't want to admit that a few bad life style choices can be the difference between being poor/broke and being wealthy, because its so much easier to blame other people for your life.

    Thanks for this one!

    Not sure if the stats are 100% accurate of course but it is a fact that it is all about habits.

    And it's also a fact that successful people just think and live different than "poor" people.

    Thanks a lot, this changed me a lot. Probably I'd be choosing what should I read and minimize looking for just for fun contents to maximize my productivity :)

    This one perplexes me:

    6% of wealthy say what's on their mind vs. 69% of poor.

    I don't get it...

    80% of the people wouldn't notice it. 30% will tell you that you are making it up.
