If you have wondered what bridges the gap between those who have ‘made it big’ and those who have not managed to get their financial dreams off the ground, you may be surprised to learn that attitude plays a big role in this gap.
Successful people think in a very different way to most. They have chosen to approach risk, money and time to maximize their wealth, and understand that their thinking makes all the difference when it comes to their road to fame and fortune.
Playing the Money Game
The Millionaire Wealth Files were developed by T. Harv Eker to help you not only change your thinking, but also your behavior. One of the biggest lessons in these Wealth Files is how to learn and play the money game to shift your thinking towards success.
The first lesson in this resource is this:
“Rich people play the money game to win. Poor people play the money game not to lose.”
Poor people work to pay their bills and feed their families. This is their primary goal, and while it seems a bit harsh, if what you want is to merely “pay the bills”, that’s most likely all you are going to get.
Middle class people work to be comfortable and have a bit extra left over to spend on themselves. Being comfortable however means not worrying about bills and being able to enjoy your life. With that said, when you have to worry about what you can and can’t afford; that is far from being fully free of all money woes.
Rich people do what they want to do in life. The world is their playground, whether they are doing safaris in Africa, scuba diving in Australia, lazing on a tropical beach in Thailand or shopping in New York. They do not ever worry about whether they can afford to enjoy their lives, because they know that they have the means to live however they choose.
If you are always aiming for survival or even comfortable, there is a very good chance that is all you will become. If you attempt to grow your wealth, you will always be comfortable.
To use an analogy, if you are training for a race, you may not cross the finish line. You will however push yourself further and faster than you could have gone without training.
In this way, wealth is much the same. You need to teach yourself to dream without any boundaries, and educate yourself with the right type of knowledge. Start believing that you deserve to be wealthy, and start doing whatever it takes to grow your wealth and keep it.
Once you have mastered this, you may soon find that you have more inspiration and a better mindset to achieve your dreams and make real change happen.
