If You Want to Grow Rich You Need to Think Big
You’ve heard it before – you are what you eat, well that methodology also applies to your financial well-being. Think small you’ll live small and struggle with a small income. Think big, you’ll live big and find yourself with an abundance of wealth.
Now don’t confuse living big with living extravagantly and beyond your means. Live big means you focus on your wealth and on being wealthy, you don’t spend your days counting your pennies and worrying about where your next dollar will come from. You know that you will have an abundance of money – you spend time dreaming about how you will use your wealth – where you will live, where you will travel – you think big. That constant focus will guide you in the right direction and help you to achieve your goals.
Of course, it’s going to take a lot more than just sitting their dream. You’ll be disappointed if all you do is meditate your day away envisioning your big pile of green backs. But desire will motivate you to reach your wealth. If you are content with the humdrum 9 to 5 waiting for the next paycheck knowing full well that you’ll be broke before you even get that check, then that’s the life you are destined to. But if you are not content with that, if your desire is to have the freedom to do what you want, to see what the world has to offer, to live like a millionaire, to travel the world, then you’ll have the desire to make that happen. Your imagination is important.
Again, if your imagination and desire of being wealthy is limited to dreaming about what numbers you’ll pick on next week’s lottery ticket, you’re still missing what it takes to grow rich. Imagination and self motivation go hand in hand. Look at some of the wealthiest people and their stories and you’ll find that long before they were wealthy they were already dreaming about what they could have done better, what they could have done more efficiently – they were motivated.
Finally, you’ll need to make some decisions. If you are going to grow rich, you simply can’t sit on the fence trying to decide – you’ll need to make decisions right or wrong. The wrong decisions aren’t a waste because they should be seen as lessons. When you make up your mind, make sure you stick to it. Opinions are everywhere. In fact, on the entire planet, they are the cheapest commodity to be found. So, don’t let other peoples’ opinions affect you.
You too can become rich, start by thinking big!
