These millionaires did one thing as kids that made their fortunes (and it had nothing to do with good grades)

Self-made multimillionaires are more likely to have played competitive sports or run businesses on the side while at school than to have received top grades, new research suggests.

They are also more likely to be over-optimistic in general, to learn from experience instead of analysis, and to be abrasive characters who are comfortable in conflict with others.

So argues social scientist and author Rainer Zitelmann, author of “The Wealth Elite,” which is based on an extensive review of academic research into the minds and habits of the super-rich as well as several dozen deep interviews with self-made multimillionaires.

These findings may help individuals understand better the characteristics likely to lead to riches, but undermine what middle-class parents tell their children about homework and grades.
