Are you on your way to striking it rich? Orrrr…
Does your behavior shoot up red flags? To help you figure it out, I’ve rounded up some warning signs to watch out for. Of course, everyone’s situation is different, but if you’re routinely making these mistakes, it may be time to make some changes when it comes to managing your money. Sure, rich people value the importance of saving and investing, but they also recognize that the key to getting really, really rich is to earn. “The masses are so focused on clipping coupons and living frugally they miss major opportunities”. Even in the midst of a cash flow crisis, the rich reject the nickel-and-dime thinking of the masses. They are the masters of focusing their mental energy where it belongs: on the big money.”
That said, there’s no need to completely disregard smart savings. But if you want to reach seven figures, “stop worrying about running out of money and focus on how to make more”. “The number one reason most people don’t get what they want is that they don’t know what they want”. If you want to build wealth, you have to have a clear goal, specific plan and hard deadlines. And when you’re setting goals, don’t be afraid to think big. The rich set their expectations exceptionally high and are up for any challenge.” No one would ever strike it rich and live their dreams without huge expectations.”
“if you’re broke or not where you want to be financially, you can be sure that your language could use an upgrade.” Such as “I want” and “I need,” which are different ways of saying “I lack.” And “I wish,” just another way of saying “I’m not in control.” Instead, start saying things like, “I have,” “I create” and “I choose.” If you think getting rich is out of your reach, you’re probably not going to make millions. The average earner remains average because they expect that they aren’t worthy of great wealth. Who am I, they ask themselves, to become a millionaire?” “The truth is, in a capitalist country, you have every right to be rich if you’re willing to create massive value for others”. Start asking yourself, “Why not me?” After all, that’s what the millionaires and billionaires do.
