Is getting rich ever easy?
What is the most direct path to becoming rich?
The tactical answer is becoming a business owner who has a real estate portfolio. If you look at historical data you will see that most self-made millionaires have real estate as a major component of their wealth building strategy.
But, is getting rich the right objective?
Les Brown once said, “Everyone knows that getting rich doesn’t make you happy, but everyone wants to find out for themselves!”
Wealth is a measurement of success but I believe that the definition of success is living the life you want to live.
“True success is living the life that you want to live.” – Jamie Irvine
How to be Truly Successful
Now here is the secret holy grail to getting anything you want out of life including becoming wealthy. What you think about you become. If you think about a goal for your life, and you focus your mind on it all the time, you will eventually reach that goal and become that person.
“What you think about you become.” – Earl Nightingale
So, regardless of whether or not you take the tactical approach that gives you the highest probability of success you can still achieve your goal.
How do you use Earl Nightingale’s quote to produce wealth?
1 – What you believe predicts the outcome.
2 – Take action.
3 – Get results.
4 – The outcome reinforces your belief and the process repeats itself.
So, if you believe 100% that you will achieve your goal you will take different actions which will produce different results and reinforces your core belief that you will succeed. As the process repeats itself you will continuously spiral up towards your ultimate goal.
If you only sort of believe it, let’s say 50% that you will achieve your goal you will take action, but the action won’t produce the results, the lack of results will reinforce your core belief, you will spiral down away from your ultimate goal and eventually, you will quit.
So, going back to the original question about becoming rich. Do you want to see if you are the type of person who is on the path of becoming wealthy?
The first thing I suggest you do is really get in touch with your core belief about your ability to achieve this goal. If you find that you don’t truly believe you can achieve it you must train your mind until you change your mind.
