It’s true. From every 100 people you take who reached age 65, according to statistics only 1 will be wealthy. 4 will be financially independent, 15 will have some savings put aside, and the other 80 will be dependent on pensions, still working or broke.
The question is WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE IN THOSE STATISTICS?
Recently I attended a local seminar by Alon Ulman, and he took out a $200 bill from his pocket in front of 100 people and said who wants this $200 bill in exchange for $100? People started to raise their hands, but I didn’t raise my hand – I stood up from my chair, took $100 from my wallet, handed it to him and took $200. Easy money 🙂 Now he then said who wants $100 in exchange for $50 and this time some people stood up. ( Actually it was in our local currency, but the point is the same lol ).
Why didn’t other people stood up but only a handful of people? That’s the same in life, most people are blind to money-making opportunities, some have internal issues of deservingness. If you want to be an entrepreneur, you need to develop an internal eye for spotting many different money-making opportunities.
You know, the main purpose of building a profitable home based business is attaining financial freedom – the ability to live the lifestyle that you want without the need to work or be dependent on others.
And a huge part of what is stopping most people is not the exact strategies, but it is their mindset, values and beliefs when it comes to making a lot of money.
I remember reading books and listening to seminars of T. Harv Eker, who helped millions achieve financial freedom, and he said that every person has a set financial thermostat, kind of like your air conditioner works. If you start to earn a lot of money, more than you are used to, than your financial thermostat kicks in and cause you to sabotage your success, so that you can be back to what is comfortable.
This financial thermostat is set most of the time pretty early in your life, by your childhood life experiences, things that happened when you grew up, what you heard and saw around the topic of money, and it’s composed mainly of your beliefs and your values.
I want by the end of this post to realize that becoming financially free is possible for you, it’s legitimate and it’s ethical.
Because I can teach you all the strategies in the world how to build a 6-figure online business, but if you are not ready inside to receive big sums of money, you’re going to sabotage your success if you attain it in the first place.
There are 4 blocks to becoming financially free:
1) People don’t know the rules of money ( both external and internal )
2) People have not decided yet to become financially free
3) People are afraid to deal with money issues
4) People have unhealthy habits about money
Now in this post I’m not attempting even to solve all those issues, but I want to get you thinking in the right direction.
Here is a fun video demonstrating that most people are blind to money-making opportunities, even if it’s right in front of their eyes. People go by this “money tree” and they don’t see it, others are not filling they deserve to have this “free money”. Who said that money doesn’t grow on trees? Take a look.
Do you know that 85 richest people on earth have now have as much money as the bottom half of world’s population – 3.5 BILLION people?
There is a growing income inequality in USA and other countries as well, and I want you to become the wealthy, because if you’re poor you cannot really help anyone. The best way to help poor people is to not become one of them…
Now the economics of getting rich is pretty simple. You earn more money than you spend, you invest in assets that bring money into your pocket and you stay away as much as possible from liabilities that suck in your money. That;s what rich people do.
The majority of wealthy people started from humble beginnings and built themselves up from the ground up with their own business.
I personally think that one of the best and most fulfilling businesses is building a home based business, where you market from the comfort of your home or while you are traveling and the only thing that is need is your laptop, mobile device and internet connection. you get to build your online presence and brand yourself, you are creatively expressing yourself and giving value.
And remember that you are going to be compensated in the marketplace by the amount of value that you bring and how you help other people.
As entrepreneurs we are compensated not by the hour, but by the results, by sales, and we add value by teaching, solving problems and organizing our resources in a way that produce more value for other people.
When you are financially free you can do what you want when you want it, you can travel the world and never worry about bills, debt and having money coming in.
If you really want to become financially free, you need 1) decide to 2) work on your millionaire mindset and financial habits by reading books like those that T. Harv Eker writes 3) choose a vehicle to profit and make money like high ticket affiliate programs 4) Invest the profits back into the business and then begin thinking about diversifying your asset and investing portfolio.
The most important thing for you to realize is that you CAN become financially free if you choose and decide to, and be committed to the process.
