Sounds strange, doesn’t it? How’s this statement even be true you must be thinking? All of your lives you must have heard that money is the most important tool you must have if you want to get rich and successful. But let me tell you today, even if you have less or no money, it is still a great opportunity for you to be even more successful in life.
Now let’s look at how is this possible. Most of you know that money attracts money, and to have a good return, you always must make good investments. Well, it’s true for the people who already has inherited or made money. What about those who doesn’t have either? Does that mean the later can never make money because they don’t have lots of it now? It’s quite the opposite actually.
Less money makes you more creative
Combine your lack of money with large amount of motivation and inspiration, and you will generate an endless stream of creativity. And that is your first step towards success. When you have fewer funds, you have to think of lots of scenarios to make a single situation work. It will force you to re-think your strategies and brainstorm about different approaches. You will start talking to your peers and friends about these ideas and start getting a lot of perspectives from them, which will further help you to strengthen your idea.
Folks with money generally think they have the upper hand and they lack trusted people around them. So, most of the time they put their money without brain-storming much and that leads them to invest into wrong areas most of the time. So you see, you have the upper hand without money, rather than someone who does.
Less money makes every penny vital
Having less or no money, means every little bit of your money is important to you. You know the “worth” of the money you have with you and you will think hundred times before you spend or invest it somewhere. I have heard from a lot of people who has made/inherited money easily that they have spent a lot of money on things they didn’t need or want in the first place. They got pulled in different direction, listened to so-called experts, and lost a lot of their money.
I’m not talking only about blowing money on materialistic things or partying, I’m also talking about all those business expenses that weren’t necessary in the first place. People are always looking for deep pockets and finding a way to rob them. This gives you an edge above others. Having lesser funds means you will think and re-think hundred times before making a purchase or an investment, and that is a good thing. Not only you will be making a right choice, you will also be saving a lot of money because you have really thought about your strategies. And that saved money will ensure more investments in the future.
You will make great financial plans
Remember, “Failing to plan is planning to fail.”
Before you start looking for an opportunity to start a business or a career, planning must be your major goal. Money is not the only thing required to start something, there is so much more that goes into it.
Let’s say, for example, you want to start a new business. What you require most is a business model, a business plan, an objective, the marketing plan, the strategic partners, the customers, the providers, the list goes on. All these things require proper planning even if you “do” have the money. So why wait till the time you have the money, start planning anyways. Start planning now!
All the above pointers must stop you from thinking that money is such a huge limitation to go ahead. Build a solid strategy today, so that when the money comes in, you will be more successful.
