If you have ever had money issues and wonder if things can ever get better financially, this session is for you. Read , digest and act on it immediately.
Les Brown said ” a person’s opinion of you should never become your reality”. This statement in itself carries a lot of punch because we see a lot of people who show care by giving damaging opinions of topics they do not have in-depth knowledge about or experiential insight.
Our loved ones who do not know better give us views about our lives they FEEL will help but enslaves our innate ability to become more than we are. This also does not leave out opinions about MONEY. You find a person who has never gone beyond debt giving money advice to an aspiring person which curtails their aspiration and kills their belief.
Money is a servant that obeys any master that has its key. The question is, do you have its key? Now the following are the reasons why you are not rich…..
1. It has never occurred to you that you can be rich; It never occurred to anyone of us that we can be wealthy because we have never really been around people who are wealthy
You have been to schools with people who do not come from wealthy backgrounds or have friends who are not from wealthy families
The charge to you is to change your associations to positive ones
2. You didn’t decide to be rich; We never DECIDE to be wealthy. Even if you begin to associate yourself with people from wealthy backgrounds or being exposed to their mentoring, you must make a firm definite, decision to be wealthy
This is more of a mental, emotional and attitude issue. Do not wish, hope and pray but decide!
3. Postponing your actions; Procrastination!
People always have a good reason not to begin doing what they know they need to do to achieve financial independence. It is always the wrong month, the wrong season, or the wrong year. Business conditions in their industry are no good, or they may be too good. The market isn’t right. They may have to take a risk, or give up their security. Maybe next year.
That it occurs to you and you have made a decision doesn’t not end it until you add immediate actions
4. Unwillingness to pray the price required to be rich/wealthy; Inability to delay gratification
If you cannot delay gratification, and discipline yourself to refrain from spending everything you make, you cannot become wealthy. If you cannot practice budgeting as a lifelong habit, it will be impossible for you to achieve financial independence.
As W. Clement Stone said, “If you cannot save money, the seeds of greatness are not in you.”
5. It does not happen over night; Lack of time perspective
Time perspective refers to how far you project into the future when you decide what you are going to do or not do in the present.
Nothing good comes easy hence give yourself time to invest time, energy and skill into a worthy cause and work back to a daily action plan.
Everyone that is wealthy today had long term perspective.
To conclude this, i need to say: ALL IN ALL, THE SUCCESS THAT SOME PEOPLE ATTAINED WAS NOT IN SUDDEN FLIGHT. THEY WHILE OTHERS ARE SLEEPING, TOILED DAY AND NIGHT TO ENJOY WHAT THEY DO NOW.
FIND THE EFFECT YOU WANT AND DO THE CAUSE.
