RICH MINDSET VS. POOR
The difference Between the rich and the poor. How are they so different from each other?
A lot of it comes down to whether you have a rich or poor mindset. The difference between a rich and poor mindset can change how you think about the world and how you interact with your money. A wealth mindset not only helps you make more money, but you learn how to better manage and take care of your money.
The good news is, having a poor or wealthy mindset isn’t dependent on your bank account balance. Rich people can have a poor mindset and set themselves up for future failures. It’s also possible for a person in poverty to have a wealth mindset which will help pave their path to success.
One of the principles of having a wealth mindset that we teach in our programs 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.
Most people don’t get what they want because they don’t know what they want. People with a rich mindset are 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. People with a wealth mindset do not send mixed messages to the universe. Poor people do.
The third level of wanting is “I commit to being rich.” The definition of the word “commit” is to “devote oneself unreservedly.” This means holding absolutely nothing back; giving 100 percent of everything you’ve got to achieving wealth.
It means being willing to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. This is the warrior’s way. No excuses, no ifs, buts, or maybes. Failure is not an option. The warrior’s way is simple: “I will be rich, or I will die trying.”
Are you willing to work 16 hours a day? Rich people are. Are you willing to work seven days a week, giving up many of your weekends? Rich people are. Are you willing to sacrifice (at least for a period of time) seeing your family, your friends, and giving up your recreations and hobbies? Rich people are. Are you willing to risk all your time, energy, and start-up capital with no guarantee of returns? Rich people are.
How do you want to live your life? How do you want to play the game? Do you want to play in the big leagues or in the little leagues, in the majors or the minors? Are you going to play big or play small? Are you going to live a level 10 life? It’s your choice.
If you have a wealth mindset, you know your life is not just about you. It’s also about contributing to others. It’s about living true to your mission and reason for being here on this earth at this time. It’s about adding your piece of the puzzle to the world.
Most people are so stuck in their egos and think everything revolves around them. But if you want to be rich in the truest sense of the word, it can’t only be about you. It has to include adding value to other people’s lives.
3. Rich people see opportunities and focus on rewards. Poor people see obstacles and focus on the risks.
Rich people see potential growth, take responsibility for the results in their lives, and act upon the mindset that “it will work because I’ll make it work.” Rich people are committed enough to do whatever it takes. Period.
Did you know that there are no straight lines in the universe? Life doesn’t travel in perfectly straight lines. It moves more like a winding river. More often than not, you can only see to the next bend, and only when you reach that next turn can you see more.
Bless that which you want. 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. If you see a person with a beautiful body, bless that person and bless their body.
I believe negative thinking is like having measles of the mind. Instead of itching, you get bitching; instead of scratching, you get bashing; instead of irritation, you get frustration. Now, do you really want to be close to people like that?
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.
9. Rich people work hard and believe it’s appropriate to be well rewarded for the value they provide.
10. Those who have a wealth mindset believe in themselves, their value, and their ability to deliver.
Do you want a successful career or a close relationship with your family? Both! Do you want a focus on business or have fun and play? 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! If you have a poor mindset, you choose one or the other, rich people choose both.
Let’s set the record straight. Money is important! To say that it’s not as important as other things in life is ludicrous. What’s more important, your arm or your leg? Could it be that both are important?
Money brings freedom — freedom to buy what you want, and freedom to do what you want with your time. Money allows you to enjoy the finer things in life as well as giving you the opportunity to help others have the necessities in life.
It’s imperative to realize that it is not necessary to try to get rid of fear in order to succeed. Successful people have fear, doubts, and worries, but they don’t let these feelings stop them. Unsuccessful people have fears, doubts, and worries, too, so what’s the difference? They 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.
But 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.
