Your dream – a bungalow or a mansion, top luxury cars in your garage, multi-million dollars in your bank account, a private plane that you can take to anywhere in the world. This is your dream but the rich are already living it. In fact, they are so accustomed to it that it is a normal lifestyle to them. This is where you, a daily wager, needs to reach. You will know it when being rich becomes a habit rather than choosing to be wealthy.
It’s all about the mindset – the way you think, the way you see life, the way you see opportunities and the actions you take.
“I am responsible for my circumstances”
This statement is an insight derived by Dave Ramsey, author of the article “20 Things the Rich Do Every Day” from analysis of feedbacks received from around the world on this article.
This statement is important because being rich is a mind game. This school of thought advocates the fact that every individual has the ability to change his/her circumstances. Again, if you are strong willed, and you know what it takes to reach the sky, you can change it. If you are not scared of hard work, readily engage in self-improvement techniques, make the right choices and embrace good habits, you will know that you are on the right path. If an average person continuously seeks to improve themselves by all means at their disposal, circumstances will automatically turnaround, creating an abundance of wealth and prosperity. Hence it proves, that those who cry over spilled milk are responsible for it. They should stop victimizing themselves in the name of destiny and luck.
The good vs the evil
An average person usually thinks of the rich as the exploiting dictators who suck the money out of the poor people to gain for themselves. Apparently, they also believe that the God’s favor the fortunate ones and shower them with more and take away from the needy. It is a very unjustified and unreasonable thinking. The rich are the way they are because of their habits, and the poor remain poor because they refuse to change and to improve.
The average person needs to rise above this ‘I am the victim’ mindset. They need to stop being a target of the almighty and accept all challenges with an open and positive mind. There is no Good or Evil person. There are only positive and negative thoughts. And it can only change if you move away from negativity and remain within the positive mindset.
Excuse yourself from excuses
There should be no if’s or but’s when you want to achieve a goal in life. Once you start with it, that’s when you start slipping. Face your problems chin up and avoid quitting just because you hit a roadblock.
Avoid giving into silly excuses like procrastination, too many long working hours, luck not on my side, finances slipping away, etc. You need to exit your comfort zone and usual habits because a comfortable life will never make you a millionaire.
The gist of the matter is, reason the reason that stops you from doing what should be done to achieve your dreams. The moment that feeling pops up – ‘I can’t do it’ – do it. Charm yourself up, polish up and have the rich for your company, learn, and get rich.
