Henry Ford said: “Think you can, think you can’t, either way, you’re right.”
Your mind is a powerful instrument.
Instead of saying “I want to be ____(fill in the blank) like them.” You should be saying “If they can do it, I can do it.”
Wealth File #9
Rich people are bigger than their problems. Poor people are smaller than their problems.
Life has many landmines and pitfalls. If you’re living life, any kind of life, you’re going to experience setbacks.
Poor people don’t take the high road, they don’t live BIG because they’re don’t want the hassles, headache or responsibilities that come with success. They will do almost anything to avoid problems. In their efforts to avoid problems, they run into the biggest problem of all -being BROKE. “I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor and rich is better” -Roger Daly
Let’s agree that everyone has problems. The secret to success is not to avoid your problems but to grow yourself so you are bigger than your problems.
The secret to success is not to try to avoid or get rid or shrink from your problems; the secret is to grow yourself so that you are bigger than any problem.
Once again, whether you’re rich or poor, playing BIG or small, problems don’t go away. The size of the problem is never the issue. What matters is the size of YOU!
If you have a big problem in your life, all that means is that you are being a small person!
T. Harv Eker suggests whenever you feel like you have a big problem, point to yourself and scream, “Mini me, mini me, mini me.” That will help to wake you up and put your focus back on YOU and your goals. Again, your wealth can only grow to the extent that you do. Just think of yourself as a container for wealth. If your container is small and your money is big, your container will overflow and you will lose it. Grow yourself so large that you’re able to receive all the blessings out there for you.
Poor and unsuccessful people are problem-oriented. They spend their time and energy blaming, justifying and complaining therefore they never come up with anything creative to alleviate the problem.
Rich people do not back away from problems. They not only alleviate them, they go to the root to ensure that that problem does not show up again. They believe they are bigger than any problem. They believe they can handle any problem. They are financial warriors!! They are not financial worriers!!
Wealth File #10
Rich people are excellent receivers. Poor people are poor receivers.
90% of the people you talk to will have a feeling of “not being good enough” planted in their wealth files. All across this country people have a feeling of unworthiness and undeserving. Most people are simply poor receivers. They don’t understand it is better to give than to receive because you have something to give. You can’t give what you don’t have. You can’t give love, money, a compliment, happiness, good advice… You can’t give anything unless you’re able to receive. Get good at receiving and get good at being thankful for your many blessings.
And so life goes…on and on
