We have passed from a world based on material limitations into a world that is determined by psychological concepts. The earlier you start pushing your mental capacity for newer, better things – the better.
Being ‘wealthy’ doesn’t mean that you have to be a nasty, greedy person. Wealth brings a multitude of opportunities to do what you want with your life. It means you can choose to help yourself, or others. Being poor, or ‘average’ is for all intense purposes a choice (for most).
Wealth and opportunities are contained more in the person you are and the way your mind works than in the assets you have acquired in life so far.
Your future lies more in your ability to apply your mind and intelligence to your work and your life than it does in your current financial situation.
Change Creates Opportunities
The forces of change impact everything that you do. The rate of change is accelerates week by week and month by month. The way the world is changing is something you have no control of.
The only decision you need to make is whether you are going to be a “master of change” or a “victim of change.” Are you going to be a creator of circumstance or a creature of circumstances? It will be one or the other, but the impact of change will be forced upon you, whatever you do. It’s your choice.
Learn from Experts
If you want to learn how to cook, you study cooking. If you want to be a lawyer, you study law. If you’d like to be an engineer, you study engineering. So, if you want to be financially successful, you must study others who have become financially successful before you. Find out what they did, and you do the same things, over and over, until you get the same results.
Dispel the Myths
There are a great number of myths about self-made millionaires. If you want to become a self-made millionaire, you must dispel these myths from your own mind. Many people have fixed ideas or beliefs about themselves and money that are holding them back, often imposed by education or parents.
One myth is that you have to go have a great education to become rich. Not true. Another myth is that you have to start off with a lot of money. Not true. Some people are convinced that financial success depends on a lucky break of some kind. Not true.
Become a Millionaire
There is a probability that you will become a millionaire in the course of your working lifetime. The things that you choose to do each day will either decrease or increase that probability.
If you set clear, written goals, make detailed plans, and continually upgrade your skills to increase your income, you increase the probabilities that you will live a wealthy life.
Decide today to become financially independent. Become a student of money, wealth, accumulation, and wealth creation. Becoming rich is a skill that you can easily learn. It’ll take some effort and don’t ever chase quick wins – you’re on for the long haul flight. Belt up.
