Results Take Time

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.”

This quote has been credited to Albert Einstein, the world’s most famous genius.

Some of the feedback I’ve received over the years considered this statement a direct challenge to the application of habits in the pursuit of success, since habits represent doing the same thing over and over again and don’t create immediate results.

So, let me address that.

If a habit produces results you do not want, which usually means results that set you back, then of course you must change the habit. But if the habit produces no immediate results, that doesn’t mean you are caught up inside the definition of insanity.

The fact is, results take time. Success, takes time. The average Saver/Investor in my Rich Habits Study took thirty-two years to become wealthy. The average Virtuoso in my study took twenty years to become wealthy. And the average Dreamer in my study took twelve years to become wealthy.

The journey towards success is a slow slog, and often feels like you’re pushing a boulder up a never ending hill. This long, slow slog, if you do not have proven habits that produce success, can create doubts and cause you to begin questioning yourself.

Am I doing the right things?

Should I be doing something different?

Am I waisting my time?

The true value of my Rich Habits Study, my ultimate legacy to those who desire wealth, health and happiness, is that the Rich Habits removes all doubt. I’ve taken the guesswork out of finding habits that produce wealth health and happiness (aka, a successful life). Success no longer has to be a trial and error process.

The Rich Habits are proven behavioral processes that create wealth, health and happiness. The results will follow. But, as I’ve said, results take time.
