How I Decided to Adopt Some Financial Habits, and Why I Won’t Use All of Them in Real Life

When someone talks about the lives of billionaires, you start imagining a beautiful picture: a man in an expensive suit, lives on a huge yacht, surrounded by models with long legs. However, most rich people live simple lives, they wear the same pair of shoes for several years, they go to fast-food restaurants, and they use public transportation. Maybe this is why they are so wealthy?

  • Especially for  smartzune.com  I tested the financial habits of millionaires on myself. And I can’t say that all of them can and should be used in real life. At the end of the article, there is a bonus for you.

Learning and doing things on my own

David Cheriton, one of Google’s investors, follows this rule. He doesn’t go to a hairdresser, he cuts his own hair by himself. Try doing something by yourself. You can start small: change the broken part on your water tap yourself, or change the wallpaper in your room by yourself without any outside help.

I decided to cut my cat’s claws on my own. I bought a claw cutter at a pet store and I wrapped the cat in a blanket to immobilize it. The entire procedure took only about 2 minutes. But cutting my own hair was something I couldn’t do. However, I found some amateur hairdressers among the people I know. They needed a model to practice on. The new haircut was 2 times cheaper than it would’ve been in a salon. And I got a chance to see my old friends.
