It hurts when truth is spilled and exposed. So, in this article we are going cover some actions the rich take while the poor neglect. Either because they don’t have the knowledge or simply they don’t want to. Generating wealth is a combination of factors and the 4 items mentioned in this list below will not guarantee success but will greatly improve your chances.
Rich people Read – A Lot.
Here is an interesting fact: Top CEOs in the world read up to 50 books a year while an average person reads 1.5 per year and it’s usually fictional or romance.
They sacrifice the present for the future.
Rich people start early. How early? The best moment to start your journey was 10 years ago. The second-best time was yesterday. The third best, is right now. Because of constantly reading and educating themselves through the books, they know that things just don’t happen overnight. So, they start grinding and sacrifice the moment and invest the most important thing in their side, TIME, into their goals. While the Poor go partying, the future Rich hustle. The poor watch TV and the rich read self-development books. While you waste your time doing nothing, the future rich invest in their craft. We all have 24 hours in a day but the rich and the poor use it differently.
Go all in on their strengths
A strong differentiating factor between rich and the poor is that they try to get to know themselves as much as possible. They actively try to find out what they want to do with their life and then they do everything they can to get better at that one thing. If you have got a talent that give you an unfair advantage over the rest, bet on it. That doesn’t mean you need to be born special, you just need to want to want it more and be willing to put in the work. Remember, hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t put in the work. The only way you’ll never be great at anything, is trying to be great at everything. Let’s take our education system for an example, a child is great at computers but is lacking behind on his French. What do parents do? They get him a French tutor. Parents do their best to ensure their kids are as mediocre as everyone else is and instead of giving them more resources to develop they are already passionate about. It’s shocking how people have such a vague idea is to what their passions are and even less of them put any efforts behind developing that into a useful skill. The rich on the other hand find it, and go all in on it.
Believe they are responsible for their own fate
Successful people rely on themselves and themselves alone. While the poor, they look for opportunities to make excuses. It’s because of the government, it’s because of the market crises, it’s because I’m not good enough, I never get the credits I deserve, I never get lucky. All of them are bunch of bullshit. The road to success or financial success is not an easy one and sorry to say this but, unless you’re born into a very rich family, you’ll have to work it yourself. If you are smart, you can speed up the pace but nonetheless there are no shortcuts to success. Rich people don’t blame others for their misfortunes. They don’t expect the government to take care of them. They take charge or their own life and craft it the way they want it. Something to remember, if you are not building your own life, someone else will hire you to build theirs! Stop with the excuses, 86% of millionaires and billionaires are self-made. That’s almost 9 out of 10 built their own fortunes, from scratch through hard work and by being smart about it. They are the masters of their own fate. What about you? Are you going to steer your own boat or let the currents take you wherever? It’s time to make your choice.
