Make money? Wrong. Save money? Nope. In fact, it has nothing whatsoever to do with money. It does, however, have everything to do with mindset.
“Rich people learn and grow; poor people think they already know.” – T. Harv Eker, Secrets of the Millionaire Mind.
It’s work – hard work – that requires dedication, but you must commit yourself to a lifetime of learning. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to do hard things in life and remain consistent in your efforts.
I’m going to let you in on a little secret, one I’ve discovered through hosting a weekly Half Hour of Power. The easiest way to make learning a matter of consistency is to commit to teach. Teach others and you will learn even more.
Here’s the thing: the journey to success is, in fact, a process of learning. If you believe this and live it, success will simply follow. While you’re striving for success you’ll soon discover that learning is its own end. Learning alone brings a great deal of satisfaction.
I hear you saying, “I’m too busy. I have too many commitments. My family/job won’t allow me to pursue more learning.” I also hear you making excuses. But where there’s a will there’s a way. We’re all busy. We all have the same number of hours in a day, and yet there are those who succeed and those who fall into mediocracy. Which do you want to do?
If you think that where you’re at today is mediocre but safe, then you’re stuck. You need to realize that there’s a better way, that you do not know all, and that there are answers out there just waiting for you to ask the right questions. Until that moment, you will remain stuck in a poverty mindset, unable to enjoy the success that lies right around the corner.
