By ourselves, we can never see what's holding us back from reaching our full potential. Einstein said it best, ?you can't solve a problem with the same mind that created it?.? If you want to create wealth, it is imperative that you believe that you are at the steering wheel of your life; that you create every moment of your life, especially your financial life. If you don't believe this, then you must believe you have little control over your life and that financial success has nothing to do with you. That is not a very rich attitude. Most of us have good reasons as to why it would be wonderful to be rich, but what about the other side of the coin? Are there reasons why it might not be so great to be rich or go through the process of trying to get rich? Each of us has a file on wealth in our mind. This file contains our personal beliefs that include why being wealthy would be great. But for many people, their file also includes information as to why being rich might not be so great. These people have mixed internal messages around money and especially wealth. One part of them says, "Having more money will make life a lot more fun." But then another part screams, "Yeah, but "I'm going to have to work like a dog! What kind of fun is that?" One part says, "I'll be able to travel the world." then the other part responds, "Yeah, and everyone in the world will want something from me." These mixed messages are one of the biggest reasons that most people never become rich. In fact, the #1 reason most people don't get what they want is they don't know what they want. Rich people are totally clear they want wealth. They are unwavering in their desire. They are fully committed to creating wealth. They will do "whatever it takes" to have wealth as long as it's moral, legal and ethical. Rich people do not send mixed messages to the universe. I hate to break the news to you, but getting rich is not a "stroll in the park." It's takes focus, expertise, 100% effort, and "never say die" perseverance. You have to really commit to it, both consciously and subconsciously. You have to believe in your heart you can do it and you deserve it. If you are not fully committed to creating wealth, chances are you won't. "You control your ability to become wealthy and financially free. Make a long-term commitment to develop millionaire money habits, continue to develop your financial IQ and start thinking like a millionaire. The money will follow. ?Rich people believe "I create my life." Poor people believe, "Life happens to me." ?Rich people play the money game to win. Poor people play the money game to not lose. ?Rich people focus on opportunities. Poor people focus on obstacles. ?Rich people are bigger than their problems. Poor people are smaller than their problems. ?Rich people act in spite of fear. Poor people let fear stop them. ?Rich people constantly learn and grow. Poor people think they already know. So my question to you are you wanting to be rich or poor? In the end, it's all up to choose what path you want to go, the decision is yours.
