What’s the real reason you want wealth? The power, the “things” or the social standing? While all those things are great here’s my thoughts on being wealthy just to be wealthy.
“Don’t get rich just to get rich because you won’t feel any different than you do today.”
Get rich for the gift of who you become during the process to get there. Money isn’t going to make a lick of difference unless you change who you are. Now don’t get me wrong – I’m sure you’re an amazing individual already – but we’re looking for the up-leveled version of you.
“The wealthy you should be an enhanced version of what you are today.”
You have to grow new strengths, be more open, expand your network and people and become more giving. After all, the more you give, the more you get, right?
“In order to really grow wealthy, you need to really grow.”
Yes, that means you need to be more consistent and more disciplined. But it also means – and here’s the kicker – you need to be more caring!
“Becoming wealthy is really a side effect of solving more peoples’ needs than you are today.”
How will your money make someone’s life better? Most of the successful people I know and hang around don’t talk about their wealth or all the things they have. Instead, they talk about the impact they’re making and who they want to help next. It’s not about what you get back.
Becoming the enhanced version of yourself is THE ultimate gift because it’s about the person you get to be as you make your way through this life. The money and possessions are just the icing on the cake.
