mistakes that keep you from getting rich

Do you feel like you are constantly short of money? Do they literally flow between your fingers? Do they end before you receive the next amount? How to learn to attract, maintain and multiply money luck?

Often between us and real wealth there are occupations that we do not like and the habit of feeling sorry for ourselves for any reason. In many ways, this is true. But, let’s say, a person really likes his work (not such a rare case), and he is not inclined to feel sorry for himself – except a little bit and exclusively on rainy evenings. However, not only millions, but just a stable financial well-being is not there. What’s the matter?

By poverty, oddly enough, leads and avarice . Not only because the miser pays twice, the Last Day products are late and the sale items are substandard. A business owner who cuts an employee’s salary during a crisis to save a pretty penny will never be truly successful.

A dad who regrets money for a child’s education deprives him of the opportunity to find a good job, and himself, possibly, excellent financial support in old age.

It’s not easy to admit that you are stingy. From childhood, we are accustomed to the fact that saving is useful, we love money, and who spends a lot will not be rich. But even the habit of winding left and right may not be as destructive as the desire to get more money right now and by all means. It is greed that makes a person grab onto unstable projects that promise quick benefits, skip training (after all, it only distracts from earning “real money”), in the most difficult cases – to get involved in financial pyramids, a network business selling unverified goods or fraudulent schemes.

Stinginess has a deeper cause than just Plyushkin’s syndrome. Many are accustomed to measuring success with money, that is, the number of banknotes or (even more often) symbols of prosperity that you can brag about right now. Got an iPhone (car, laptop, plane)? And which model (it is important to be the latest)?

Even if the new smartphone is really more convenient than all the previous ones, it is unlikely that buyers who queue at the store three days before the start of sales and take large loans to afford it, think about comfort. Money and time – sometimes to the detriment of work – are spent not on the gadget itself, but on the feeling of one’s own importance, on the confirmation of the thought “I am much better than anyone out there who walk with an outdated model.” This is a dead end road. The desire to appear rich and successful interferes with becoming rich and successful. Really wealthy people measure wealth not by conventional units, but by the ability to “make them” at any time from their labor and resources, and then buy with them what will really make life more pleasant, safer and more convenient.

Finally, another surefire way to be a failure is to make some money and immediately distance yourself from family and friends . And then, God forbid, you will have to help, borrow, support! Spend money! Terrible! The payback for this can be very terrible – not even because loneliness is painful, but for purely practical reasons. People with whom you are connected not by business, but by personal relationships, may not come out to you during the most severe crisis, when you will not have a penny left, and if necessary, they will lend your own. The myth of a strong, lonely and independent “wolf of big capital” who does not need anyone is good for books and TV shows. In real life, fortunately, building and maintaining connections with people is a critical ingredient to success. Including financial.

The poor need a million, the rich need an idea!

So, you have already understood that you can get rich only when you rebuild your consciousness, begin to think and act like a rich man. What are the psychological characteristics that lead to wealth?

Psychology of poor and rich people

Poor people are poor because of the way their minds work. They consider other people’s capital, are afraid to take risks, justifying their inaction by fear of loss and do not see ways to get big money, even if they are under their noses.

Once poor people approached a rich man and asked:

– Why do we live on the same land, but you bathe in abundance, and we can barely feed ourselves?

“Because you don’t see where the money is,” the rich man answered them.

– How can we not see? – the villagers were surprised.

– Let’s do this. You ask the poor man to cross the suspension bridge, without telling why. And I’ll put a bag of coins on the bridge. If he takes it, then the money will be yours.

People found a beggar and asked him to cross the bridge. He did so, did not bent down anywhere, did not lift anything. Everyone ran to him and asked: 105

– Didn’t you see anything?

– Every day I walk on this bridge several times. Today I wondered if I could cross it with my eyes closed …

What really separates people “created to be rich” from the rest?

The “rich” are sure: they are the authors of their own destiny. The “poor” live in a plot that someone else invented for them.

Humanity has come up with many fairy tales and stories about the lucky ones who once found a treasure, peasant girls who married a prince, and poor sufferers, on whom a gift from a kind millionaire suddenly fell. But a truly wealthy person hardly ever bought a lottery ticket or wandered the streets hoping to meet a wizard. Everyone who has achieved something was able to do it because they consistently went to the implementation of their plans. You should not rely on the fact that someone will make you happy, it is better to think about what and how you can achieve on your own.

Finally, believe that you yourself determine how much money you have.

The poor man’s goal is not to lose. The goal of the “rich man” is to win.

Don’t try to avoid disappointment by setting the bar as low as possible. Wish for the maximum. Set global goals. Really global: not “pay the bills”, not “go on vacation” or even “make ends meet.” Perhaps “make a million dollars” will do. Or “help thousands of people.”

The “poor” are looking for reasons. The “rich” are looking for opportunities.

Try to focus on ways to overcome obstacles, rather than the one hundred and first reason why you will never, never succeed.

“The rich” admire the rich and successful, strive to communicate with them. The “poor” envy them or scold them, avoid them.

If you yourself are going to join the cream of society, there is no point in mixing them with dirt, right? Think: maybe those who seem to you to be snobbish and arrogant are simply trying to protect themselves from eternally gloomy and disgruntled individuals who are constantly ready to condemn them?

“The rich” do not hesitate to advertise themselves, inform the world about their strengths, and be in the public eye. Poor people overestimate modesty and discretion, which are often confused with dignity.

This rule applies to unhealthy altruism as well. Always sacrificing your own interests for the sake of others is a losing strategy. Helping others is wonderful, but you should start charity help with yourself. Whom can you support if you don’t represent anything?

Do not be afraid to present yourself in the best possible light and pursue your own benefit!

The “poor” strive to avoid difficulties. “The rich” is about using difficulties to grow and gain experience.

Learning from mistakes is an essential component of business success. As well as the habit of investing not in entertainment, but in education and self-improvement, “making life difficult for yourself” now, in order to make it easier in the future.

Remember that you can handle any problem!

The “poor” see money as an end, while the “rich” see it as a means.

Money is not a fetish, not an image of a comfortable and happy life, not a “treasure” that must be saved and protected. It’s just a tool with which you can get certain capabilities. This approach allows a person to take risks without focusing on possible losses, to use not only their capital, but also investors’ money, to take care of increasing not only their well-being, but also the wealth of partners and employees.

Sometimes, trying to keep the “tit in hand”, we miss a big benefit!

The “poor” live in the past, and the “rich” – in the future.

The past cannot be changed, it has already happened. Do not confuse the analysis of the experience gained with endless self-digging and constant reflections on what happened a month, a year or a couple of decades ago. Wealthy and successful people make plans, they don’t write memories.

“The rich” are enthusiastic people. “Poor people” believe that looking for pleasure in “working for a piece of bread” is an impermissible luxury.

To make big money, you have to work hard. To work hard, you need to really love what you do. Otherwise, work will turn into hard labor, which will bring you to depression before the first million.

Do what you are not indifferent to! Don’t let yourself languish in boring, pointless work that you don’t root for!

The “rich” know how not only to work, but also to receive what is due. They believe they are worthy of whatever they want to give them.

You are an excellent recipient of money, just be sure! And you will definitely get everything you need!

If your parents haven’t put the programs that lead to wealth into your internal computer, then you must do it yourself. Unless, of course, you really want to get rich.

If you want to be happy, behave like a happy person.

If you want to be rich, act like rich.

If you want to live in this world – live and rejoice, and do not walk with a displeased face, indignant that the world is imperfect. After all, you create the world.
