"Happiness is a state of mind, and my mind stays healthy if there is enough money in my pocket."
Do not worry, I just invented that. But this remains a fact for many of us, at least definitely with me.
Is there anyone who reads this article who hates money? If this is the case, this article is not the best for those who hate money like you. This article is for those who really want to become rich in life. When I say rich, I mean really rich. What you do with money after becoming rich depends entirely on you and is not the subject of discussion in this article.
Most of us want to get rich, with a few exceptions. But then why 99% of the world's population is not rich? Why only 1% could become really rich? What's stopping us from reaching a real rich status? We want it, is not it? We work hard for money, so what is missing?
While I was shooting for the promotional video of my next book, I realized that we lacked a few essential traits, so most of us lead a life of mediocrity. I have analyzed and summarized 5 key reasons why most of us can not become rich:
1. Being rich does not strike us
The fact that we were born and raised in an environment where we have hardly seen rich people leads us to believe that it is normal not to be extremely wealthy and that wealth is only an exception for more lucky. We have never had rich friends, rich neighbors, rich colleagues at the office. So, how am I supposed to be different? I am normal. I am like most of us. It never seems to us that we can be really rich, no matter what is around us. We can be this "exception". We deserve to be rich.
2. One never "decides" to enrich oneself
I like to talk about that. Many of my friends come to see me and ask me to list steps 1-10 - all they need to follow to become rich. Well, I say, "Tell me your dream." They are confused with my answer and reiterate their wish to explain to them the necessary steps to achieve financial freedom. I must remind them that your dream will be your first step. If you have not yet identified a dream in your life, with a single goal for which you are ready to sacrifice everything, you have not finished with step 1 and, unless you have finished with step 1, all other steps do not make sense. In fact, all the steps that follow your dream are so common for everyone and so easily available in books and on many websites that everyone can learn from them and follow them. But your dream is something that will not be available anywhere else. He must be sought after and unearthed from within you. A dream would be something that excites you, the only purpose in your life that ignites you and excites you for everything you do. It took me 15 years to research my own dream and the purpose of my life, but once I found it, financial freedom was no more than a series of 39 steps whose execution took 7 years. Most of us want to jump over the first step of identifying our true dream because it takes time and effort. It takes a lot of time and effort. Unfortunately, there is no shortcut here.
3. We always have enough excuses
"I'm too old to fight for my dream now", "I have a family to support and secure", "It's too early to talk about retirement or freedom", "I did not no time "," Money is not a very good thing to have "," Money can not give you happiness "," I'm busy "," Happiness is a state of mind ",. .. and the list is endless. I have only one point to tell all my friends who have a "reason" not to become rich - you can make excuses or you can make money, but not both at a time. The choice is in your hands. the choices you decide each day make your destiny.
4. We do not appreciate the delayed gratification
Most of us understand the compound interest calculation, but it is very rare that anyone really appreciates the incredible power of compound and deferred reward, unless you have experienced it yourself. in life. In this fast-paced world, we are all looking for instant results and, if we do not see them, we want to change our goal itself. Well, nothing in life is worth doing without an investment of time and effort. It takes time to get rich and the growth is exponential. You have to have patience in the early years when it may seem that you will never reach the goal, then you will suddenly realize the incredible exponential power of the composition. Do not leave your objective until compound power triggers its magic.
5. We are all in our comfort zones
"Well, what's wrong with my life? It's going very well ...", said a fish to his classmate, lying in the fish aquarium in a house. Does not that sound familiar to you? Nothing to complain about - they are fed in time, they are saved from their potential enemies, they are treated with clean water - so why should they try something different. Perhaps they have forgotten the true meaning of life - "to live" and "to experience" life and the situations it poses. It's a very similar story for most of us. We have become so used to our comfort zones that it is difficult to make an extra effort to "live" life. Is it easy to get out of such a comfortable area? Not at all. Is it worth it? Definitely yes. What is "life" life unless you have your personal freedom in your hands
So, while most of us want to become rich, only 1% of us who will learn the ability to handle the 5 constraints above will become rich. It's a fact that not everyone can get rich ... Rich would always be divided by a ratio of 1% to 99%.
But you can certainly decide which category you want to be in. The choice is in your hands !!
