This landmark research scientifically correlates everyday habits with various measures of success, such as education, wealth, quality
relationships and an overall sense of happiness – making it one of the most important sociological studies ever conducted.
Rich Habits reveals that just as one bad habit can ripple out until a life is destroyed; it is also true that one new good habit can
ripple out and create something magnificent. Some simple habits such as making our beds, having dinner as a family or waving at neighbors can actually have profound impacts.
Rich Habits also reveals that all behaviors can be organized within the four cornerstones of me we do be. “Me” refers to habits that build
quality thinking and wisdom, “we” habits build relationships, “do” habits build productivity and “be” habits build the future. Rich Habits “connects the dots” and creates a fresh
perspective for achievement.
Obviously, some people define success as making money. Others see success as having a happy family life, finding true love or winning a
competition. Some define success as contributing to a worthy cause, completing a degree, or mastering a musical instrument. Others view success as beating cancer, connecting with the
divine or healing from an emotional wound. There is no one-size-fits-all for success. Rich Habits lets us define what success means to us individually. But in so doing, it looks at the
foundational elements that apply to us all.
Rich Habits delivers fun, interesting and intelligent insights into those behaviors that lead to disaster, recovery or prosperity. The
nation’s top achievers agree, Rich Habits delivers the authentic, scientifically-based framework for authentic growth.

RICH HABITS SURVEY
Over 5,000 people from all 50 states participated in Dr. Bell’s landmark sociological study.
They were asked about their daily habits and five measures of success. The results were analyzed using regression and word-frequency
analysis. With a survey margin of error of only 2.56%, this study provides remarkable insights into daily routines that have profound impacts. Here is a sample of findings.
Rich Habit #22
Enjoy Dinner as a Family
Those who have sit-down dinners with their families are 40.7% more likely to be
happy, over those who do not and 60.8% more likely to be satisfied with their romantic life. They are also 43.6% more likely to earn over $100,000 annually.

Make Your Bed
Those who do their chores and keep their living space more tidy
tend to also make more money. For example, those who make
their bed in the morning are up to 206.8% more likely to be millionaires,
as compared to those who have a negative net worth.
Rich Habit #43
Check the Time
Those who maintain both a calendar and “to do” list are 289.3%
