Do you really want to be wealthy?
Let’s start with the question, do you really want to be wealthy? The answer is yes, if not, x this page and don’t waste your time reading it. Next question, What are you doing to become wealthy? List five things you are doing to be wealthy.
The thing I have realised about people and wealth is that they don’t do things which are needed to be wealthy. This applies to anything in life! Writing in his book The richest man in Babylon, George S. Clason said the following covering wealth “you have either failed to learn the laws that govern the building of wealth, or else you do not observe them.” It is not rocket science, it is either you’re unlearned in the laws of wealth or you don’t observe them. Which one is it? There is one thing to do in both categories, do you know what it is? It is action! If you are unlearned, then what do you do? Find wealthy people, don’t tell me you can’t connect with wealthy people, buy their books, listen to their audio’s, read their articles. We are in the year 2013 but people act as if they’re in the stone age when it comes to connecting. Follow these people on social media. I was thinking recently about some people who resent wealthy people and talk bad about them. Those of you who do this, how will you learn to be wealthy if you don’t respect what they do? I may not agree with certain people or organisations but I can respect what they have achieved or what they are doing. YOU WILL NOT LEARN FROM THOSE YOU HATE, unless you are willing to put those emotions aside.
If you are not observing the laws of wealth, simply put, start obeying them. Stop spending money which extremely exceeds your income. This is a plan destined to fail, you can only do this for so long. Put some of your money aside each pay-day because you need money on the side to provide stability and comfortability. Cut out useless expenses like take-out frequently in the week, change it to once a week or once a month. You will see a huge difference in the money going out. Spend less money on entertainment and more money on personal investment. It costs so much more less to invest in yourself than to invest in entertainment. Let me give you some personal examples. I read the Bible which was free, which gives me much wisdom and fulfilment. People spend much substance on alcohol and drugs and damage their body, use loads of money and gain temporal fulfilment at best. I spend a few pounds on books from time to time, which add millions to my mind and millions to my ideas, others spend thousands on cars and homes which they never get to own.
If you want wealth, what kind of environment do you need to be in? Simple again, a wealthy environment, but how many of us do this? Books on wealth are really cheap, less than £5 in many cases, most spend that in thirty minutes on a night out on a weekly basis. Many spend this much on a daily basis on tea and coffee, go one day without and start investing in your future. Let me tell you an interesting story about fish.
“Placing fish in a different environment determines how big they become. They can be placed in small environments and never reach their full potential (even as adults) or be placed in big environments and flourish.”
How big do you want to become? I have fish and I have bought fish before, this story is true. You become as big as your environment is.
