Many poor people want to be rich, but their decisions and actions are geared towards survival instead of wealth and abundance. Building wealth is not comfortable. There is a huge difference between being comfortable and being wealthy. If your goal is to just be financially secure, chances are you will never be wealthy. However, if your
goal is to be wealthy, then chances are you will end up either wealthy or very, very comfortable.
Building wealth is not going to be convenient. You are going to have to make sacrifices to reach your goals. Wealthy people don’t base their decisions on what’s easy or convenient. They base their decisions on what is going to get them to their long-term goals even if it makes them uncomfortable.
Understand the concept of a wealthy mindset:
The single biggest difference between financial success and financial failure is embracing and living by these twelve commandments. Make it a practice to surround yourself with people who will push you to achieve more in your life.
Find and join social circles, groups, and communities comprised of people who are financially playing the game at a higher level than you are. Then do everything you can to learn from the way they think, act, and make decisions with their money.
Then model those decisions with your own money. Find a way to do this even if you don’t have a lot of money right now.
It’s fairly simple:
If you want to build wealth and master money, you must learn from
those who have already built their fortunes and have demonstrated
the ability to successfully manage it.
People who struggle financially either mismanage their money or they avoid the topic of money altogether. They often say things like, “I’ll start managing my money as soon as I get caught up and save a little.” This is like someone who says he’ll lose thirty pounds and then start exercising. One has to come before the other, not the other way around. You have to learn how to properly manage money and then, over time, you will have increasingly larger amounts of money to manage.
Commit right now, and practice the twelve commandments of money in your own life. Share them and empower others to do the same.
Change your mindset, change your goals, change your life!
