Tip o’ the Morning to Ya – Cause & Effect

Rich Habits Word of the Day

Causation – Origin, beginning. Tom realized, after completing his five-year study, that the causation of poverty for most people was their bad daily habits.

Rich Habits Fact of the Day

What causes hurricanes?

Hurricanes are intense low pressure areas that form over warm ocean waters in the summer and early fall. Their source of energy is water vapor which is evaporated from the ocean surface.  

Water vapor is the “fuel” for the hurricanes because it releases the “latent heat of condensation” when it condenses to form clouds and rain, warming the surrounding air. (This heat energy was absorbed by the water vapor when it was evaporated from the warm ocean surface, cooling the ocean in the process.) 

Usually, the heat released in this way in tropical thunderstorms is carried away by wind shear, which blows the top off the thunderstorms. But when there is little wind shear, this heat can build up, causing low pressure to form. The low pressure causes wind to begin to spiral inward toward the center of the low. 

These winds help to evaporate even more water vapor from the ocean, spiraling inward toward the center, feeding more showers and thunderstorms, and warming the upper atmosphere still more. The showers and thunderstorms where all of this energy is released are usually organized into bands (sometimes called “rainbands” or “feeder bands”), as well as into an “eyewall” encircling the center of the storm. The eyewall is where the strongest winds occur, which encircle the warmest air, in the eye of the hurricane. This warmth in the eye is produced by sinking air, which sinks in response to rising air in the thunderstorms. The winds diminish rapidly moving from the eyewall to the inside of the relatively cloud-free eye, where calm winds can exist.

Hurricane intensity is based upon the highest sustained (1 minute average) wind speed the hurricane is producing. The “Saffir-Simpson” scale rates hurricane strength in this way from Category 1 to Category 5. These categories were chosen based upon the amount of damage that each category can produce.

Rich Habit Lesson of the Day

For most people bad daily habits are the cause and poverty is the effect. In my five year study I discovered certain poverty Habits that are directly responsible poverty. Poverty Habits are behaviors that contribute to poverty. Behaviors such as watching too much T.V., spending too much time on recreational Internet use, eating too much, not saving, living beyond your means by spending more than you earn, not reading every day for self-improvement, lack of proper goal-setting, procrastination, poor relationship management, negative thinking, allowing negative emotions to control your behavior, drinking too much alcohol, not seeking out mentors in life and lack of purpose in life. You can eliminate your Poverty Habits by adopting Rich Habits. Rich Habits are unique Habits known as Keystone Habits. Keystone Habits are unique in the habit world. They are unique because they affect or eliminate Poverty Habits. If you want to raise yourself out of poverty you need to adopt Rich Habits.
