Tom Corley is an expert on the role of financial wealth and health in overall wellbeing. He has extensively studied the habits of the rich and has much to say on the overlap between these habits and the habits of generally happy, healthy people.
Today, Tom joins me to talk about that link. He shares where his passion for financial health and wellbeing came from, and he notes the need to emotionalise smart money habits. He emphasises the importance of self-awareness, explaining why it’s the most crucial habit of the rich. He shares the story of his positive outlook, and he distinguishes between expectation and destination. He explains why mirror neurons are important, he shares the story of a setback from which he grew, and he urges you to take advantage of the surge in emotional energy that comes from the sad times in life. He notes that there are many different types of success, and he emphasises the importance of love.
“When things go wrong in your life, you really have two choices: you can surrender, or you can improve yourself.”
