Want to Be a Millionaire? Don’t Do These 7 Things

Looking to make it to millionaire status? Simply do as the rich do. You’ll never find these seven qualities in millionaires — here’s why.

What Not to Do to Be a Millionaire

1. They Aren’t TV Junkies

Millionaires don’t spend their time indulging in Netflix binge-watching. Instead, they substitute tube time for books. From Elon Musk to Warren Buffett, many famous entrepreneurs are known to spend many hours a day reading. While the content can vary, most devote time to non-fiction, focusing on self-education and self-improvement. Sure, they’ll be clueless about the latest Game of Thrones twist, but they’d likely argue that the knowledge they earn is well worth it (plus it saves you the heartbreak.)

3. They Don’t Second Guess Themselves

Successful entrepreneurs tend to go with their gut instincts and don’t overthink choices. That isn’t to say they don’t consider consequences-they absolutely do. However, they don’t over-analyze to the point of paralysis. After carefully considering their options, they choose a path, take action, and don’t look back.
