WARNING: Read this only if you want more money.
If making lots of money and creating wealth offends you, this is NOT for you.
Proceed at your own risk.
Years ago I heard a very successful businessman, very wealthy too say that he knows his Net Worth to a penny.
He checks it everyday.
Napoleon Hill in “Think and Grow Rich” said…
“Success comes to those who become success conscious. Failure comes to those who indifferently allow themselves to become failure conscious.
Wishing will not bring riches. But desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means to acquire riches, and backing those plans with persistence which does not recognize failure, will bring riches.”
Whew. This last sentence is packed with gems. Read it again and again and again.
Especially the part about turning desire into an obsession.
See, some people are afraid to say they are obsessed about wealth.
Is it ok to be obsessed about your health?
Is it ok to be obsessed about your emotional well-being?
Then why in the world is it NOT ok to be obsessed about becoming wealthy?
I’m not talking about living in a mansion, driving a Bentley and flying your own jet.
Although if that gets your juices flowing there ain’t nuttin’ wrong with that.
Whoever said “money doesn’t buy happiness”, obviously never had any money.
Money DOES buy happiness.
But there’s one caveat to this…
See if you’re UNhappy… then when you get some money, it will NOT make you happier.
Maybe temporarily. But very quickly you’ll fall right back to your depressed or unhappy state.
You’ll worry about losing it, you’ll buy things to cheer you up, but it’ll quickly wear off and all that won’t make you anymore happy. So you’ll go back to the same old thinking that…
Money Does Not Buy Happiness!
If you’re happy (not content or satisfied), just happy. Then when you get some money, you’ll buy things that make your life happier.
Money does buy you experiences that enrich your life.
Like traveling, doing things with your family, having time to spend with your kids, being able to afford better “stuff”, and…
… it’s something that can provide you with lots of security and freedom.
In my experience, money only makes you more of what you already are.
It doesn’t make you good or bad. It’s just a piece of paper, or actually more like, digits on your bank account statement that give you the PERCEPTION of having money.
So how do you get more of it?
You get what you focus on.
If you focus everyday on growing your wealth, it has no other place to go but UP.
I heard a great line the other day.
“Obesity happens one pound at a time.”
And so does wealth. You build wealth one dollar at a time.
Having a goal to become financially independent…
Setting up your wealth building account…
And then everyday looking at it and thinking about growing it…
Will help you convince yourself that you WILL have it.
Do you have a wealth accumulation account?
Are you investing it and checking it daily?
It’ll magnetize more thoughts about wealth, money and success to you.
You’ll start “seeing” or becoming aware of opportunities that others just don’t see.
And the funny thing is they’ve been there all along, you just need to become “money conscious” to see them.
Then comes the most important part which is taking action.
Or as Joe Vitale put it in his book “The Attractor Factor” – take “inspired action.”
When you do something with lots of positive energy, this energy adds tremendous power to your action, which makes getting results much easier.
If you want more money, more wealth, more abundance and more success in your life…
… then remember that both Poverty and Riches begin with a single thought.
Which thoughts will you choose today?
What seeds are you planting in your garden today?
And what inspired action are you taking today to build your wealth?
‘Til next time
