How To Be Rich

The highway to wealth is, and always has been, your ability to start and build a successful business. Building and running your own business is the master key to the creation of wealth. This truth was profoundly stated by J.P Getty in his book, How To Be Rich. Getty was the richest man in his days, so you can be too sure to be following a valid instruction and principle. In their book, The One Minute Millionaire, Mark Victor Hansen and Robert Allen also wrote, “One of the fastest ways to create wealth is in climbing the Business Mountain.” Look around you, and you’ll discover that the richest people in our world are business people. Your lack of necessary ability to build and run a successful business is the main issue standing between you and your financial dream. Business Skills Are Learnable The good news is that all business skills are learnable. Yes, you heard me right; they can be learnt. And if you’ve ever learnt any skill before, it could be to make your bed, then you can learn any other skill. If you’ve learnt to drive a car, you can learn how to be a successful businessperson. Learning business skills could be that easy. Listen, you can learn to start your own business and position yourself on the highway to wealth and financial freedom for the rest of your life. As Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Records and Virgin Airlines said, “Once you learn how to start and build a business, you can do it over and over again. The principles are the same.” You can learn any business skill you need to achieve any business or financial goal you set for yourself. All you will need is the willingness and readiness to learn. Believe in yourself and step out in faith and you’re on your way to building a million dollar business. “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” Phi 4:13   The truth is that in those things toward which we exerted our best endeavors we succeeded. As Goethe said, “Everything is hard before it’s easy.” Once you’ve learnt a skill, you can use it over and over again. Each time you use it, you get better and better, and as you get better you achieve the same financial goal with less time, effort and energy. The truth is, “It never gets easier, you just get better.”-Unknown  Three Basic Skills For Business Success Basically, the major skills that you need in starting and running a successful business are: The ability to find or create a product or service that people want, need and are willing to pay for. According to Warren Buffett, one of the richest men in this generation, “There are only two ways to create wealth: find value or create value.” Business people are skillful in the art of finding and creating enormous value for people at a profit. Preferably, this should be around something that you’re passionate about and you have the potential to be the best. The truth is that products and services that would generate a million dollar profit are closer to you than you can imagine. In his famous speech “Acres of Diamonds,” Russell H. Conwell said, “Oh, my friends, if you will just take only four...

Making Money Is Making A Difference In The World

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 better place for all. Your lack of this understanding might be the reason you’re always in financial challenges. Listen, as long as you believe or have a mind-set that abhor and detest wealth creation, the possibility of your walking in financial freedom would almost be zero.   What you don’t celebrate, you can’t experience; what you don’t value, you can’t attract.   For you to walk in financial fortune you...

 The One Battle You Must Win To Be Financially Free

 The One Battle You Must Win To Be Financially Free

  The battle for the control of your mind is the real and most important battle of your life. To be in control of your financial destiny you must be in control of your mind. Engaging in this battle with all sense of seriousness is crucial to the actualization of your financial dream. This is because what goes on in your mind is what essentially determines the happenings and realities of your financial life.   The mind is the real battle ground of life. Battles won in the mind will be won in the realm of the physical; and the one lost in the mind is already lost in the physical. This is the place where the realities of our lives are determined.   Financial victory must begin in the mind for it to be real in the physical. Financial abundance is impossible until it is first in the mind. It is indeed our minds that determine our financial realities.   Hindrances To Financial Success Are Majorly Internal  80% of the inhibitors and hindrances to your financial success are internal and only 20%are external. This is where a lot of people go wrong in their approach to the subject money; they think their financial problem has its root in things outside of themselves and thereby focus majorly on external issues.   As a result, they blame their boss at work, the government, the economy….everything you can think of but themselves.   Please understand that your major financial problem is internal. All these 80% inhibitors operate from the mind, they are essential a function of what goes on in your mind.   These inner inhibitors connote your negative thoughts and imaginations; fears, doubts, negative ideas, concepts and words. They are mostly due to past mental programming, making you feel and believe that you are not worthy, do not deserve, do not have the ability to achieve financial abundance or that money is evil and therefore should be avoided.   You Must Be Proactive This makes working on our mind for it to function and work to your advantage a priority. You must work to gain control of what goes on in your mind. You must train your mind to think thoughts that align with your financial dream. You must deliberately and consistently paint pictures of a life of financial abundance in your mind.   1Pe 1:13  Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;   The Bible admonishes us to gird up the loins of our mind. The word “gird” is an action word- a verb that suggests preparing oneself for a military confrontation. It means to arm, build up, fortify, girdle, encircle etc   Remember I said the mind is the battle ground of life. For you to truly enjoy financial victory and success you must gird up the loins of your mind. You must work on your mind. The Mind Is Prime Target Of The Enemy. “But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ,...

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 action is taken away from your equation of success, failure is inevitable and unavoidable.   The problem is not the rejection but the meaning given to it. This is what determines the response we give to rejection…either to give up on our dream for financial freedom or to be more doggedly committed to the realization.   “I take rejection as someone blowing a bugle in my ear to wake me...

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 those that are left, four out of five will fail within the next four years. Franchising is a way for the small business entrepreneur to boost the odds of success. A franchise gives you the privilege of owing and running a business with a proven system. It takes the guesswork out of building a business from the scratch. But the downside to all of these is that the cost of...

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

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 are stronger than we.  And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.  And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come...

HOW TO MAKE YOURSELF RICH

HOW TO MAKE YOURSELF RICH

Due to the nature of my work, I receive all manner of mails and phone calls from people asking for prayers because of business and financial problems…..people from the different walks of life and nations of the world. Listen friend, financial and business problems are real; but much more real are our victories in Christ. In Christ there is all the time and all the way victory for everyone washed in the precious blood of Jesus.  “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.” 2Co 2:14  Please understand that there is nothing bad in asking for prayers, but you must be willing and ready to do your part. A wise man once said “Every prayer that makes God absolutely responsible for your need is an irresponsible prayer.” There is a part you must play in the equation of financial success. Problems can make you rich Problems are facts of life; they are real. Problems are everywhere; everyone has one problem or another they are trying to solve especially financial problems. So, you are not alone. If you want to make yourself rich, locate the problems people are passing through and position yourself to solve them. Wherever there is a need or problem there is also an opportunity to make money.  The truth is that the rich see opportunity to make money in everything.  “You can get everything in life you want, if you help enough other people get what they want.” Zig Ziglar Seeing problems as opportunities to create wealth is a major step in your quest to conquer the world of money. For the rich and the successful, identifying a problem creates the opportunity for creating a solution. Every problem people talk about is nothing but opportunity to create wealth. Seeing problems in this perspective is crucial in your quest for financial freedom. Get equipped In the final analysis, the chief reason you went to school was to be equipped to solve problems. Problem solving is education at its best. Intelligence is basically the ability to solve problems.  “…..through knowledge shall the just be delivered.” Pro 11:9  With the proper financial education and training, you can increase your financial IQ. The higher your financial intelligence, the bigger the financial problems you can solve. Through financial education you can become richer by finding ways to solve your financial problems. Solving your financial problems becomes relatively cheap with right financial education. At the root of most financial problems is lack of financial education. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee………” Hos 4:6  “Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.” Isa 5:13 To succeed financially, you must understand how the world of money operates. This is the major difference between the rich and the poor. Study the rich and wealthy and you’ll discover they have very sound financial education. Financial education is the way to go Financial education is a major key if you must walk in financial freedom. Making money is work, but note, this dimension of work is essentially of the mind....

HOW YOU CAN MAKE MORE MONEY

HOW YOU CAN MAKE MORE MONEY

‘I can’t imagine a person becoming a success who doesn’t give this game of life everything he’s got.’’ Walter Cronkite The desire for more money is one thing that is inherent in  everyone who understands the power and usefulness of money. Pretending or denying this, is like denying the desire to live. Making and spending money is an integral part of successful living. Please know, that there is nothing bad or evil with the desire for more money, if pursued legitimately. Also worthy of attention is the fact that, there is nothing mystical or magical about making more money.  One of the fundamental principles of making more money or increasing income is the enhancement of productivity level. When productivity is increased, the tendency for income to increase becomes higher. This is the express lane into the world of wealth and riches. Increasing your productivity is a vital step in your quest for making more money, and achieving  financial freedom. One of the greatest investments of your time and money is to increase your earning ability. The amount of money that you are paid today is a direct measure of the extent to which you have developed your earning ability. You must make it a point of duty to generate substantial return on the investment of your human capital (spiritual, emotional, physical and mental energies) as you become more effective, efficient, and productive in what you do. The greater this return on the investment of your human capital; the faster your journey in the world of money. You therefore, owe it a responsibility to generate as much ROI as possible from all of your efforts and energies. “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.” Pro 22:29  We all make money as we meet needs and add value to other. The quality and quantity of value added determines cash flow, and the ultimate financial status and destiny. To achieve this, we must make giving quality and quantity service and value to our clientele our chief duty. This becomes possible as we become more effective, efficient, and productive in what we do. The better you become in whatever you do, the greater your chances of increasing the level of your productivity. Personal productivity or output is a key differentiator between people who make the real money in their chosen fields and those who do not. Be a peak performer Becoming better in whatever you do, will enhance your productivity which will ultimately impact upon your income. You can’t afford to be a mediocre in a very competitive market. The world pays average reward for average performance; the real money goes to peak performers. Your goal should be to become a peak performer in your field of endeavour. One primary way to become better in your job or business is to identify that area of excellence that can have the greatest positive impact on your career and your income. Focus on the key result areas of your assignment You need to find out the key result areas of your work-These are the tasks that you utterly, definitely have to carry out in an excellent manner in order to do your job well. Your financial wellbeing is tied directly to how excellent...

The starting point of a great financial destiny

Posted by on 2:58 pm in PEAK PERFORMANCE | 0 comments

The starting point of a great financial destiny

“A man, as a general rule, owes very little to what he is born with – a man is what he makes of himself.” (Alexander Graham Bell) One of the fundamental truths you must embrace in your quest for financial freedom is that you determine your financial status. Yes, you’re absolutely responsible for where you’re today financially. One of the greatest attributes you can have is an intense sense of responsibility. It is empowering, for one thing, and your effectiveness will increase tremendously when you own the good and the bad of all you do. Personal responsibility is the price you must pay for financial greatness. Taking 100% responsibility for your financial destiny is the gateway to a world of financial dignity and success. In every study of rich and wealthy people, the acceptance of personal responsibility seems to be the starting point. Before that, nothing happens. After you accept complete responsibility, your whole life begins to change. Everything that makes life colourful and great is a product of personal responsibility. No one can breathe for you and no one can eat on your behalf. These are products of personal responsibility. In the same manner, your financial destiny is your personal responsibility. To blame is to be lame financially We have been conditioned from childhood to blame things outside of ourselves for the parts of our lives we don’t like. We blame parents, government, bosses, spouse – anything and anyone we can put the blame on but never ourselves. We avoid looking at where the real problem is- ourselves.   The truth is almost everybody has a reason not to succeed in life, yet many have succeeded and many are still succeeding.   So, no excuse is good enough for you to fail!   “99% of all failures come from people who have a habit of making excuses”-George Washington Carver (the chemist who discover over 325 uses for the peanut)   You’re indeed the architect of your financial destiny. Stop passing blames and making excuses. You’re responsible for your present financial circumstance. It is you who took the actions, thought the thoughts, created the feelings, and made the choices that got you to where you’re now financially.   The bottom line is that you are the one creating your financial destiny the way it is by your thoughts and actions.   Change is possible The good news is that you have control over your current thoughts and feelings. You’re in charge of what goes on in your mind, what you say or do. If you want a different financial result and status, and I know you do, then you have to do things differently. You will need to act in ways that will enhance the realization of your dreams.   That begins with you taking 100% responsibility for all the financial happenings in your life. You must accept complete responsibility for your life, and for everything that happens to you, with no blaming and no excuses.   If you have ever at any point in your life blamed anyone or anything for your financial circumstance, then you’re not taking responsibility. Taking 100% responsibility means acknowledging that you create everything that happens to you financially. It is only by acknowledging that you have created everything up until now that you can...

Four easy steps into wealth and riches

Four easy steps into wealth and riches

There is a how to doing everything under the sun. And to every product there is a process. To the uninitiated the accumulation of wealth and riches may seem mysterious and mystical. But to the man and woman who have been schooled in the science of wealth creation, accumulating wealth and riches has been demystified and is now predictable. There are four sure-fire steps that guarantee your access into the world of wealth and riches. Every man who has ever amassed wealth had always known and walked in the reality of these steps. Wisdom teaches that it’s of no use trying to reinvent the wheel. All that is needed is to go to those who have achieved whatever you are trying to achieve and learn how they got to where they are, and key into their wisdom. Whatever had worked for them will work for you.  “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls…….” Jer 6:16  Doing a little study of the rich and wealth will reveal to you some of their secrets. SET FINANCIAL GOAL The starting point of a great financial fortune is the clarity of what you’re out to achieve. You need to be definite about the amount of money you’re out to accumulate. It is not sufficient merely to say “I want plenty of money. Or I want to get enough money.” You need to define what “enough” means to you. Set a target of the amount of money you’re out to achieve. Be specific and definite in setting your financial goal and target. The clearer you are about your financial goal, the more rapidly you will attract financial opportunities, people and circumstances into your life to help make your financial future a reality. When you are absolutely clear about the amount of money you want, you can then think about your financial target often. And the more you think about it, the faster it will materialize in your life.  “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.” Pro 23:7   You become what you think about, most of the time. A wise man, once said, “Whatever you can hold in your mind on a continuing basis, you can have.” Indeed, setting clear, definite and written down financial goal will force you to put your thinking cap on. With this, you release your own power, and things will start happening in your finances. Goal setters are goal getters! DEFINE WHAT YOU WANT TO GIVE IN EXCHANGE   Money is simply a means of exchange of values, goods and services. You need to be specific about what you’re willing to give in exchange for the money you’re out to accumulate. There is nothing like something for nothing. Money comes to any man for the value he is able to add to the life of another, inform of services and goods. Money is an agreement about value. If you want more money, you must create something that other people value! The wealth seeker must be true to himself about what he has to give to the next man in...
