Between the rich and the poor, how are they so different from each other?
(I’ve got a long explanation here, but read to the very end and I promise you it will be worth it.)
you really have a choice: to be a rich and successful entrepreneur or a broke one. Now… you can be a victim or you can be rich, but you can’t be both. Here’s why!
1. Rich People Play The Money Game To Win. Poor People Play The Money Game To Not Lose.
The goal of truly rich people is to have massive wealth and for many of them, it’s to help a lot of people.
One of the principles we teach is, “If you shoot for the stars, you’ll at least hit the moon.” Poor people don’t even shoot for the ceiling in their house, and then they wonder why they’re not successful.
2. Rich People Are Committed To Being Rich. Poor People Want To Be Rich.
The number one reason most people don’t get what they want is that they don’t know what they want. Rich people are totally clear that they want wealth. They are unwavering in their desire. They are fully committed to creating wealth. As long as it’s legal, moral, and ethical, they will do whatever it takes to have wealth. Rich people do not send mixed messages to the universe. Poor people do.
This is the warrior’s way. No excuses, no ifs, no buts, no maybes — and failure isn’t an option. The warrior’s way is simple: “I will be rich or I will die trying.”
3. Rich People See Opportunities. Poor People See Obstacles. Rich People See Potential Growth. Poor People See Potential Loss. Rich People Focus On Rewards. Poor Focus On The Risks.
Rich people take responsibility for the results in their lives and act upon the mindset “It will work because I’ll make it work.” Rich people are committed enough to do whatever it takes. Period.
It comes down to this: If not you, then who?
4. Rich People Focus On What They Want, While Poor People Focus On What They Don’t Want.
Action always beats inaction.
Bless that which you want – and stop bad mouthing because you’re yet to get there. If you see a person with a beautiful home, bless that person and bless that home. If you see a person with a beautiful car, bless that person and bless that car. If you see a person with a loving family, bless that person and bless that family.
Energy is contagious: Either you affect people or you infect people. Focus your energy on what you want; not what you don’t want. Whichever way, what you focus on expands.
5. Rich People Are Almost Always Excellent Promoters.
They are willing to promote their products, their services, and their ideas with passion and enthusiasm. People who have issues with selling and promotion are usually broke.
6. Poor People Will Do Almost Anything To Avoid Problems.
Poor people see a challenge and they run…
The secret to success, my friends, is not to try to avoid, or get rid of, or shrink from your problems; the secret is to grow yourself so that you are bigger than your problems.
If you have a big problem in your life, all that means is that you are being a small person!
If you want to make a permanent change, stop focusing on the size of your problems and start focusing on the size of you!
7. Rich And Successful People Are Solution-Oriented.
Rich people spend their time and energy strategizing and planning the answers to challenges that come up, and creating systems to make certain that problem doesn’t occur again.
Think of yourself as a container for wealth. If your container is small and your money is big, what’s going to happen? You will lose it. Your container will overflow and the excess money will spill out all over the place. You simply cannot have more money than the container. Therefore you must grow to be a big container so you not only hold more wealth, but you also attract more wealth.
8. Rich People Do Not Back Away From Problems, Do Not Avoid Problems, And Do Not Complain About Problems.
Rich people are financial warriors. The bottom line is that if you become a master at handling problems and overcoming obstacles, what can stop you from success? The answer is nothing! And if nothing can stop you, you become unstoppable!
9. Rich People Work Hard And Believe It’s Perfectly Appropriate To Be Well Rewarded For Their Efforts And The Value They Provide For Others.
Poor people work hard, but due to their feelings of unworthiness, they believe that it is inappropriate for them to be well rewarded for their efforts and the value they provide.
10. Rich People Believe In Themselves. They Believe In Their Value And In Their Ability To Deliver It.
Poor people don’t. That’s why they need “guarantees.”
The only way to earn what you’re really worth is to get paid based on your results.
Do you want a successful career or a close relationship with your family? Both! Do you want money or meaning in your life? Both! Do you want to earn a fortune or do the work you love? Both! Poor people always choose one or the other, rich people choose both.
11. Poor People Either Mismanage Their Money Or They Avoid The Subject Of Money Altogether.
The single biggest difference between financial success and financial failure is how well you manage your money. It’s simple: to master money, you must manage money.
Saying, “I’ll start managing my money as soon as I get caught up” is like an overweight person saying, “I’ll start exercising and dieting as soon as I lose 20 pounds.”
You must acquire the habits and skills of managing a small amount of money before you can have a large amount.
Money is a big part of your life, and when you learn how to get your finances under control, all areas of your life will soar.
It comes down to this: either you control money, or it controls you. To control money, you must manage it.
12. Rich People Have Their Money Work Hard For Them While Poor People Work Hard For Their Money.
Rich people see every dollar as a “seed” that can be planted to earn a hundred more dollars, which can then be replanted to earn a thousand more dollars.
Eventually rich people get the choice to work or not.
Poor people don’t invest their money and are stuck working for the rest of their lives.
13. Rich People Are Willing To Act In Spite Of Fear. Poor People Let Fear Stop Them.
It’s imperative to realize that it is not necessary to try to get rid of fear in order to succeed. Rich and successful people have fear, doubts, and worries. They just don’t let these feelings stop them.
Unsuccessful people have fears, doubts, and worries, then let those feelings stop them.
We need to practice acting in spite of fear, in spite of doubt, in spite of worry, in spite of uncertainty, in spite of inconvenience, in spite of discomfort, and even to practice acting when we’re not in the mood to act.
So there you have it. Now it’s your choice who you’d rather be like. If you want to be rich, do what rich people do. If you don’t, then do what broke people do.
Simple right? Where to begin? It all starts with what is inside of you — more specifically, your mind.
Your thoughts lead to your feelings, that lead to your actions that lead to your results.
Either you control your mind or it controls you.
