Maybe you have a very strong desire of becoming one of the richest people the world has seen but probably you are getting in the way of yourself. Have you ever thought along the following lines:-
- “How can I ever reach the success these Forbes people have reached?”
- “How can I, a man with a $500 wage, become a millionaire?”
- “I cannot even dream of becoming rich because no one in my family has ever been rich.”
- “I am not able to pay even my rent. How can I buy a luxury yacht?”
See what you are doing? You are letting yourself get in your way. You are not unleashing your full potential just because you think you cannot do it. You have some circumstances in life – everyone has – which you think will prevent you from getting at all those riches we are speaking about. But if you read biographies of the richest people in the world today, you will find that a very significant amount of them have risen from slums, garbage dumps, ghettos, back alleys and so on. A lot of them haven’t had money to eat once. A lot of their families haven’t seen a $100 together except at Christmas.
Do you still think you cannot do it? Remember that no one is born into richness – not even the kids of the richest people today. Everyone has to live and learn how to sustain their wealth or to how to earn it. That is the reason you have to free yourself from yourself.
Stop thinking that you cannot achieve just because you are of a different religion, a different color, a different social background, different educational qualification, a physical or mental challenge or whatever. History has proved time and again that adversity breeds prosperity. You could be the next rags-to-riches story on the Forbes.
Do you have your mind set on becoming rich? Do you have that one talent you think the world really want? Are you already a small name in your small market? Are you confident of becoming rich? If yes, then you have to definitely make the effort. Remember that richness can come from anywhere.
