Great riches and wealth begins with the mind. The mind is a battle field. It is the instrument that gave birth to thoughts, ideas and innovations that changed our world today. Many great men understand this and use it wisely.
Theoretically, every single innovation and idea began in the mind. The mind has so much power to create and destroy, to bring to life and to kill but we humans do not realize the extreme power given to us by God to be the master of our fates and controller of our destinies. Great men rule the world with their thoughts. The difference between a mediocre and a successful man is the way they think. You can become whatever you want to become by thinking. Thinking is a very simple task but many men find it hard to do. It is well known that if you can think every day of your life you will employ your mates. The secret to great riches and prosperity is thinking (brain storming). Our mind is our greatest asset so use it wisely because you can use it to create the reality you desire. You can build an empire with your mind. If you want to be rich then think like the rich. In the words of Publilius Syrus:
‘A wise man will be the master of his mind, but a fool will be its slave
You can’t be rich if you believe that you don’t have what it takes. Never overestimate other people’s intelligence and underestimate yours. The rich believe in themselves and that is why they continue to progress. They have the willpower and passion for what they do because without passion it is hard to press on.
The road to wealth is not easy but it is made easy with our mindset. If you are constantly thinking of the obstacles you’ll face, you will definitely not be rich because obstacles are meant to be overcome not to be worried about. The more you think of a problem the more bigger it becomes and its solution unreachable. Instead, think of the solution to the problem and you will find answers. If you want to be rich start with the right mindset of success. Let the level of your determination and persistence be high and you will definitely get financial freedom.
We have many possibilities,
We have many capacities,
We have many capabilities,
It is just left for us to redefine, to refine and polish these God given talents .
Intense desire for something can keep you going even when everything seems to fail, when others try to bring you down and all hope is lost. Napoleon Hill in his book ‘Think and Grow Rich’ says that ‘desiring riches with a state of mind that becomes an obsession, then planning definite ways and means to acquire riches and backing those plans with persistence that does not recognize failure will bring riches.’
Dream big daring dreams and then be an underachiever a little bit each day. This is to say, dream big and start with baby steps. The world is filled with every day dreamers but few actually make these dreams become a reality. Do not be in a rush to achieve everything at once. The best way to keep going is to keep the flame in your heart going – Robert Kiyosaki, [Cashflow Quadrant]. Conclusively, seek mentors, look for people that are successful in your field, observe them, study them, believe you can surpass, believe you can go beyond and become more successful than they are. This will make the road to success easier as there is someone to guide you. Never listen to mediocre because they can discourage you. Take your passion and make it happen.
