How To Create Your Own Wealth

Outside of the privilege of being born into a wealthy family or marrying into wealth or winning a lottery……..the probability of which is very slim; there are three fundamental ways of becoming wealthy. Money is one of the most important subjects in life. Joy and pain stem from decision about money. This makes giving due attention to how money is made and wealth accumulated a worthwhile endeavor. The truth is that making money and accumulating wealth is not an easy walk in the park. The only thing that is really easy about money is losing it. Creating wealth is a product of determined, conscious and consistent steps, taking over time. It answers to a choice to be wealthy, backed with a decision to pay the necessary price. People become wealthy because they have learnt how to become wealthy. A choice to be wealthy is a choice to embrace any of these three sure fire accesses to wealth: 1. Live below your means. Living below your means and investing your savings is the guaranteed way to wealth. Your first task in your quest for wealth is to learn to live upon less than you earn. Learning to live upon less than you earn is a crucial step in your pursuit of financial success. This is crucial, because in the final analysis, the true measure of how good or how well you’re doing financially is how much you keep out of the amount that you earn. It’s not how much you make, but how much you keep, that determines your financial future. A part of the earned income from your job is yours to keep or save. It should not be less than 10% no matter how little you earn. Then get educated on a specific investment vehicle, and put the money you have saved into an investment. In order for you to have something to save out of what you earn, you must learn to live below your means. The truth is, we can all become wealthy, if we will put in the necessary discipline to live below our means, save and invest our savings skillfully. “If you would be wealthy, think, saving as well as getting” Benjamin Franklin Saving money involves sacrifices; it involves delaying gratification and saying no to yourself and loved ones most of the time. You might not be able to change your car or your house the way you would have loved to. Your children might not be able to attend the very best of available schools, and your appetite for a particular delicacy might not be satisfied; all in the bid to save some money for investment. Sacrificing pleasure and the good of life, especially when you can afford it, in order to save money for investment is easier said than done. This is because human nature craves pleasure and wants to enjoy the...

Master Key To Riches

Master Key To Riches

One major hallmark of the rich is that they are intensely action oriented people. They are men and women who have developed the ability to take necessary action steps in the direction of their financial goal, regardless of the obstacles and challenges they may be confronted with. Once they’ve decided on whatever they want done, they go ahead to also commit themselves to taking necessary action steps that guarantee the actualization of such goal regardless of their feelings. They understand very well that their action must precede whatever result they desire. For them, taking such action steps is a must because of their desire to actualize their goal. They know that the price for success must be fully paid in advance if one would ever experience success. Most of the time, paying the price for success in any endeavor would always require self-discipline. This is because there would always be reasons why you should not do what you should do. Situations and circumstances would always want to negotiate with you; telling you why it should not be done now or why it cannot be done. Success in every endeavor requires discipline. How To Be Rich The rich understand that unless they do what should be done regardless of their feelings, situations or circumstances surrounding them, their desired financial goals would never become a reality. Taking consistent action steps in the direction of your financial goal without quitting in the face of obvious obstacles and daunting challenges requires self-discipline. “He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.” Ecc 11:4   According to Elbert Hubbard, a prolific writer of his time, “Self-discipline is the ability to do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.” Listen to Apostle Paul, a man of great and uncommon achievements. “But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.” 1Co 9:27   Another version says, “I harden my body with blows and bring it under complete control, to keep myself from being disqualified after having called others to the contest.” 1Co 9:27   Napoleon Hill wrote in one of his books that, “Self-discipline is the master key to riches. It is the most essential principle of wealth creation. No serious level of wealth can be attained without self-discipline. This is because no other financial principle can truly deliver its value without self-discipline, no matter the efficacy and potency of such principles. Knowing Is Not Enough Most of the time we all know what to do to walk in financial abundance, the problem has always been doing what we know we should do. Anyone can learn what to do. It’s getting yourself to do it that’s hard. Listen friend, when people get stuck...

Making Money Is Making A Difference In The World

What many people are yet to discover about wealth creation is that people who create wealth genuinely always impact positively upon humanity. The process of wealth creation always makes the world a better place. Wealth seekers must add value to people’s lives in their bid to create wealth for themselves. They must create products and services that solve problems for people. Wealth seekers are always about making a difference in the world as they seek to make money. The wealth seeker is like a honeybee. The honeybee’s major goal is to acquire nectar to make honey. But while seeking nectar, unintentionally, the honeybee is actually involved in a much bigger purpose. At 90 degrees to the direction of the honeybee’s flight path, pollen is being dusted on its wings. As it goes about searching for more nectar the honeybee is innocently cross-pollinating the rooted botanicals. Unknowingly to the honeybee, this cross pollination is a far more important outcome than making honey, for it results in a beautiful bountiful garden. Making Money Is Making A Difference In The World The wealth seeker in his bid to make money is actually making the world a better place for humanity. This is the greater purpose we should see and celebrate about wealth creation. This greater purpose should be our motivation to seek to create wealth. Think of things that bring comfort and pleasure to our lives, businesses and homes….things like cars, airplanes, houses, refrigerators, televisions, elevators, hotels, air conditioners, bags, computers, fans, furniture, shoes, clothes, tables, pens, books…just name it. The truth is that some guys in their bid to build businesses and create wealth at one time or the other in human history came up with these amazing products that have transformed the way we live our lives forever. Indeed, wealth seekers will always make the world a better place to live through their products and services. Making money is about adding value to people. It is about solving people’s problem. People will only be willing to give you their money if you’re able to meet their needs, solve their problems or add value to them. This understanding is crucial in effectively positioning your heart for wealth. A lot of people go around criticizing the teaching of wealth creation. To them, talking about money is carnal and worldly. “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” 1Ti 6:10 Those who teach how money is made are seen as people who have erred from the faith. Truly, human criticize what they don’t understand. Please understand that creating wealth is about making a difference in people’s lives. So when we teach people how to make money we are simply teaching people how to add value to lives and make the world a...

Master Rejection And Be Rich

Master Rejection And Be Rich

If you are going to be rich in life, and fulfill your financial destiny, then, you’re going to have to be mentally tough. You need to develop mental toughness for you to master and defeat the enemy called rejection.   Every man who has ever achieved anything in life had at one point in their journey developed this all-important skill. It is a skill that differentiates the boys from the men. It’s the seal of manhood in the arena of business and financial exploits.   Receiving “No” Is A Part Of The Process Encountering rejection is part of the equation of business and financial success. You must get acquainted to the idea that there will be a lot of rejection as you journey into the world of money. The key to success is never to give up. When someone tells you “no”, speak to someone else.   Asking is a principle of success, but you will do yourself some good to know that some people will say yes and some will say no to you. Knowing this ahead of time softens the pain of rejection.   You should never persecute, condemn or destroy yourself because someone or some people said no to you. The SWSWSWSW which stands for “some will, some won’t; so what-someone’s waiting” will be of great help to you.   Accepting no is a part of the process of finding those who say yes. When someone says no to you, what should come to your mind is the word “Next”. There is someone waiting down the road to say a big YES to you. By all means keep asking. Persistence, couple with absolute belief, can never be defeated.   You can try to avoid the pain of rejection by saying nothing, doing nothing, being nothing. Many great destinies and dreams have been slaughtered on the altar of rejection; yours will not be on the list.   It is almost impossible to succeed in any field of endeavour without mastering rejection. Can you imagine a marketer who fears rejection succeeding? The truth is that we are all selling….it could be selling your product or service to potential employer or client. It is in selling that money is made.   Or can you imagine a young man who desires marriage yet fears rejection from ladies getting ahead in life?   Rejection had made mockery of many promising destinies, sent many out of the race for greatness. It had frustrated and wounded many supposedly strong men. It is indeed the stealer of destiny.   It’s All About Your Interpretation An average person has been programmed to interpret rejection as a negative, even psychologically frightening and ominous event. The mere fear and anticipation of rejection will keep people from taking quality actions toward their financial destiny.   The ultimate of rejection is to keep you paralyzed and inactive, and once...

The Ultimate Money Machine

The Ultimate Money Machine

The age of information is indeed the age of unspeakable financial opportunities. The truth is that unthinkable wealth lies within the reach of every man and woman who cares to search out how the game of money is played. Ironically, many get their hands on very little because they blindly, without question, follow the crowd in a circle to nowhere. They follow methods and procedures for no other reason than “it’s always been done that way.” I read about an experiment conducted some years ago about “Processionary Caterpillars.” These caterpillars blindly follow the one in front of them. Hence, the name. The caterpillars were carefully arranged in a circle around the rim of a flower pot, so that the lead caterpillar actually touched the last one, making a complete circle. In the centre of the flower pot is pine needles, which is the food for the Processionary Caterpillar. The caterpillars started around this circular flower pot. Around and around they went, hour after hour, day after day, night after night. For seven full days and seven full nights they went around the flower pot. Finally, they dropped dead of starvation and exhaustion. With an abundance of food less than six inches away, they literally starved to death, because they confused activity with accomplishment. What does it mean to make money? A change in the rules of money Listen friend, the rules of money have changed. To play the game of money successfully you must play with the new rules. Gone are the days of “get a good job, work hard, and save money stuffs.” The words “make money” have double meaning depending on who is saying it. When a rich person talks about making money, what he is saying is different from the poor person. When the poor person talks about making money all he is thinking about is how to sell his time for money. For him, to make more money is about selling more of his time…working longer and harder. But the rich person thinks in terms of creating a system that will generate cash flow for him. He never thinks about selling his time for money. System is the acronym for ‘Save yourself time, energy and money.’ S – Save Y – Your S – Self T – Time E – Energy M – Money The worst route you can take in your journey into the world of financial freedom is to sell your time for money. Business systems There are three main types of business systems commonly in use today. They are: 1. Conventional businesses – where you develop your own system. 2. Franchises – where you buy an existing system. 3. Network Marketing – where you buy into and become part of an existing system. If statistics are to be believed, four out of five conventional businesses fail within their first five years. Of...

Peak performance: A sure-fire access into wealth and riches

Peak performers or high achievers are people who without fail turn out outstanding results in diverse areas of human endevour; they are essentially everyday people who have developed certain positive attributes which enable them to accomplish remarkable results. One of such attributes is the ability to create positive mental pictures of themselves. Self-image is probably the most important part of your personality. It precedes and predicts your performance in almost everything you do. Peak performers have healthy self-image. Self –image is about the idea, conception, or mental image one has of oneself. It’s about how you see yourself……your opinion of yourself, the value you place on yourself and how you believe others see you. These self-images can either be positive or negative, good or bad. A negative self-image will make you doubt your capabilities and ideas, while a positive self-image will enhance your confidence in your thoughts and actions. Your mental picture of yourself has a powerful effect on your behavior. The person you see is the person you will be. It is mentality that defines reality. Peak performers are people with positive, healthy self-image. Consequently, they have strong faith in their abilities and view themselves as valuable individuals. This is a major prerequisite in your pursuit of financial freedom. It’s said that confidence is the backbone of success. When your confidence goes up, your competence goes up at the same time. Simply put, when your image improves, your performance improves and your results are excellent. The world pays excellent rewards for excellent performance, average rewards for average performance and poor rewards for poor performance. Your goal is to receive excellent rewards for the investment of your physical, mental and emotional energies in all of your undertakings. Great financial reward answers to people who perform well in their jobs, and positive self image will help you do your job wonderfully well. The starting point for a productive and prosperous life is a healthy self-image. Negative self-image is an enemy Please understand that as individuals, we will consistently act and perform according to the way we see ourselves. Poor self-image, more commonly known as an inferiority complex will rob you of the necessary confidence that should enhance your performance in your task. And once you under perform in your task, you start to lose ground to financial lack and poverty. “You cannot consistently perform in a manner that is inconsistent with the way you see yourself.” Zig Ziglar There is an account in the Bible of some twelve guys who went out to spy on a city. Ten of these guys sold out their great and colourful destiny as a nation and people to poor self-images….they saw themselves as grasshoppers and unable to take delivery of God’s great plan for them. “But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they...
