Profile: Ellen DeGeneres, American TV host and businesswomen, actress, philanthropist

Ellen DeGeneres is a Hollywood rags-to-riches story.
When the television host and businesswoman came out as gay on national television in 1997, Hollywood treated her as a pariah.
She lost her television show due to advertisers pulling their ads and was at a very low point in her life.
She didn’t know where to go from there.
She knew she wasn’t a failure, but as she says, “it certainly gave me a lot of time to sit still and go, ‘Who am I?’”

One of the areas of her life that she began to look closely at during this period of her life was spirituality.
She discovered an interest in the vegan lifestyle and in yoga.
In 2011, she began to practice transcendental meditation.
This quest to find spirituality is something that a surprisingly large number of entrepreneurs share.
Some of them believe in God or are involved in a specific religion, while others have different spiritual beliefs that span everything from ancient Buddhism to New Age.
If you feel like you don’t have time for spirituality in your life, you may want to reconsider.
There must be a reason that so many of these entrepreneurs have made it a priority.
Let’s take a look at five spiritual habits of successful people.

Habit 22: They spend time in contemplation

One of the things that successful people do is spend a great deal of time in introspective contemplation.
They think about what they can change to make their goals a reality.
They consider all of the options.
They rarely leap before they look.
Spirituality is one of the best ways that someone can get to know themselves better.

Habit 23: They give money to worthy causes

You will also notice that these people are extremely generous when it comes to worthy causes.
Whether that is feeding the homeless, or just paying the tithing that their church teaches on, successful people have no problem contributing to charitable causes.
Some of the most successful people in the world gave nearly their entire fortune to help those who needed it, with Bill Gates and Warren Buffet as prime examples.

Habit 24: They take their own path

You will also notice that successful people will often take their own path.
While everyone else is lining up to be Catholic, Christian, Muslim or Mormon, the most successful people in the world will often forge their own spiritual path.
That is a direct result of them knowing who they are and being able to discern which spiritual path will give them the enlightenment that they seek.
They may take elements from certain belief systems and create their own spiritual understanding of the world, and if that works for you, then you should definitely do it.

Habit 25: They develop a solid code of ethics

In addition, the successful people on this list develop their own moral code.
They may not do everything the way that you or I would, but they follow this moral code very strictly.
It is usually a pretty good one too, and makes them better people who know what they will do and won’t do.
These ethics often guide successful people to the right opportunity, or introduces them to the right people, to allow them to reach their goals.

Habit 26: They are open to inspiration

Whether you believe in a God or not, there is no denying that inspiration can come along and give you an idea that will change your life.
J.K.
Rowling was riding on a train when she got the idea for Harry Potter.
If she hadn’t been open to inspiration, she might not have recognized it for what it was and the world would have never heard of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
