Let us start with the definition of the word ‘dare’, shall we? In common parlance, ‘dare’ refers to the courage to do something. But we have previously never really linked success, money and being rich with ‘courage’ or bravery, have we? No. We haven’t. We have connected success with hard work, with patience, with intelligence, with experience and a lot of other things. But courage? Why does one need courage to be rich? And how is it that even though some people do not end up being rich but can dare to be so?
Let’s look at the heading of this article in a different way. Let’s say, all those who dare to be rich might not end up being rich. But all who are rich have definitely dared to be so. In other words, being rich is a subset of daring to be rich. So basically you need to dare to be rich anyway, in order to attain it. And like it has been already mentioned, everyone can dare to be rich….so you do not have a problem essentially. You have a good chance of getting rich in life! Confused? Don’t be. Here’s what all this means really…
Why do you need ‘courage’ to be rich?
Being rich is not any and everyone’s cup of tea. It’s not like you dream about money, put in hard work and voila! You wake up one morning with a lot of bank balance! It is not like that at all. Gradual progress to success and making it big in life takes a lot of effort, and unlike what most say…it is not always hardwork requiring will and patience. Most of it is sheer mindset and attitude change and the way of looking at career, money, success, yourself. And that needs courage. You need to ‘dare’ to be rich in order to really get rich. Only dreaming about being rich, desiring about being rich would never do you any good.
How do you ‘dare’ to be rich?
Step 1: Change your money mindset
The way you think of money, success, work, career, everything needs to change. You need to be able to think big. Stop thinking of getting a job and think of creating jobs. Stop thinking about joining a good company and think about buying a good company. See what I mean? You entire mental plane has to shift to a higher level. And remember, when you aim for the stars, you land up on the moon!
Step 2: Make money work for you
Stop working for money and make money work for you. This requires a change in the way you view the world around you and how you think about things. Start identifying where to put your money in that will return more money to you. Stop spending and start investing. These can be assets, self-development side businesses, anything, but your aim should be that even if you do not go to work money should work for you and still make you rich.
Step 3: Go ahead and take the plunge
The rich can hardly be rich without the risks that they take. Instilling the risk taking ability in yourself and developing financial knowledge in order to take the right risk is crucial for success. Leaving everything and pursuing your passion, taking a wild chance on a new product, investing in a radically different advertising channel, are risks or the giant leaps of faith that take you to where your destined to go.
So, now that you know, would you dare to change your mindset and take the plunge in order to get rich? Go ahead… Best of luck!
