Little Known Secret to Getting Rich

hebavioral congruenceHope you had a happy labor day. I just got back from Atlanta. Shilpi and I spend the weekend with friends and enjoyed some barbecue. YUM!

I wanted to give you a quick yet thought provoking post today since I got a TON of work to do coming back from my trip.

I’ve talked a LOT about the importance of having the right mindset and attitude, and how that’s the key to being successful and getting rich.

We’ll there’s another school of thought on this. This is something I discovered from Dan Kennedy’s “No B.S. Wealth Attraction for Entrepreneurs”.

This success strategy actually does NOT require having the right attitude or mindset at all.

It even has a funny name: behavioral congruence.

So what the heck is behavioral congruence? It’s actually VERY simple.

The idea is this: if you do what wealthy and successful people do, you will get the SAME results.

Don’t worry about having the same thoughts and attitudes as wealthy successful people, instead focus on modeling what they do on a daily, weekly and yearly basis.

When your habits, behaviors, and actions become CONGRUENT with what rich and successful people do you will manifest the same results.

Study what successful people do. Model your behavior after their’s as much as you can. If your goal is to build a successful online business that generates a residual income, then start studying the actions and habits of the individuals who have already done that.

“But Amit, what about your attitude and thoughts and all that? Doesn’t that matter? That’s what you’ve been telling us!?!”

Here’s the thing, if your habits and behaviors are congruent with rich and successful people then you will automatically start thinking like them and developing the same attitude.

Motion creates emotion.

It’s THAT simple.

    Amit you say to study and model a success person. I would like to study and model after you. How do I go about doing that. I am ready.

  2. Hey Amit,

    Your post goes in line with “like attracts like”, “you become like those who you hang around with”. Everyone should agree with your statement.

    For those that may night believe, I personally move to different states when I was little (Boston, Maryland and West Virginia). My accent changed in every state that I lived (like attracts like).

    Thanks Amit,

    Hey Amit,

    What you had mentioned in your post was exactly the same as what Tony Robbins had mentioned in his seminar while he was in Singapore last weekend. Motion creates emotions so must really change our physiology in order to change our emotions to achieve the things we are aiming for.

    Its really cool learning from outstanding persons :)

  5. Vincent says:

    Motions creates emotion. If we copy what others are doing, then we will get the same results. Great idea! Amit maybe you would like to create an article on the list of things that you do everyday so that we can learn from you. :)

    Hi Amit,

    I would love to study and model after you, please tell me how to do that?


  7. Hey Amit,

    Cool post. You’re right about being ‘congruent’ with your actions. This goes along with your other posts about studying and learning from successful people. The breakthrough occurs when you shift your paradigm to decide you will be a success. Most people get bogged down if they slip or fall from their plan.

    Like losing weight, its that one or two times you get off track that causes people to fall back into their ‘OLD WAYS’. This is the time to dust yourself off and keep your eye on the prize. (dream board/vision board)

    Regarding successful people, who are your mentors (who do/did you model)?

    Onwards and Upwards,

    I totally agree, however you really have to change your beliefs as well. Don’t you think?

    “When your habits, behaviors, and actions become CONGRUENT with what rich and successful people do you will manifest the same results”.

    Nice summation.
    Now please post your habits, actions etc.
    I want to follow you.


  1. […] Regarding my most recent post, a lot of you have been asking “Amit, what do you do on a daily basis so I can model that.” […]
