RETAILOBSERVER.COM JULY 2016 14 W hat is a winning strategy? What leads up to a disaster or collapse? Why do some squander success, while others continue to elevate? How do we build a solid foundation that assures solid, authentic growth? Rich Habits Rich Life is the result of research that has spanned over 25 years at the intersection of sociology and economics. In Rich Habits, Dr. Randall Bell masterfully interweaves classic behavioral research with his high-profile cases—including Chernobyl, the World Trade Center and OJ Simpson—to reveal why some dive, some survive and while others thrive. On top of this, over 5,000 professionals, students, stay-at-home moms, retirees, unemployed and millionaires around the world participated in the Rich Habits Survey. 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. This 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. Rich Habits delivers fun, interesting and intelligent insights into those behaviors that lead to disaster, recovery or prosperity. This is the one book you will want everyone in your family, organization and business to read!
