Becoming world-class rich is not easy for middle-class people. Some of them understand the logic of being rich and put effort to jump from middle class to world-class. But during this time, the financial scale changes across the world, and they remain in the middle class only. The gap either remains the same or widens between world-class and middle-class people.
Here we shall understand some of the universal laws about rich people thinking. How they think about money, about other rich people, about creating wealth. Credit to Steve Siebold, a self-made multi-millionaire, for his research for 30 years on this topic by interviewing more than 1,200 of the world’s wealthiest people.
Money is simple (not complicated)
While a very large size of the population believes that money is complicated, but rich people think that money flows from the idea! They know the more value they create in the marketplace the wealthier they will become. We can call them the master of solving people’s problems and then generating wealth in return. They attract money because they are problem solvers. The bigger the solution, the bigger the paycheck. It’s that simple.
The masses have always thought that rich people are smarter, luckier, or more educated. Of course, none of these things is true. The rich see making money through the eyes of endless possibilities and aren’t afraid to stake their claim. No matter how often they fail, they persist until they got the success. Their mindset is rooted in the abundant potential every new idea presents, and they live in a consciousness full of excitement and grand anticipation of results.
So while the middle class approaches money with the mind of an over academic angle, the rich people approach money like a child who doesn’t understand lack and limitation. They do not believe in limitations.
Middle class and lower middle class are happy in what they have but world-class has a growth mindset. And with that mindset, they create millions, billions. Making money may not be easy, but it is simple. There is no mystery to getting rich, but this limiting belief stops most people from ever trying.
Rich People are Ambitious (Not Crooks)
The average person has been programmed in childhood by well-meaning parents, teachers, coaches, clergy, and others of influence to believe rich people acquire wealth through dishonesty and cheating. This is one of the excuses the masses use to justify a lack of financial success.
World-class thinkers know the majority of fortunes were built through ambition, drive, and vision. Off course there may be some crooks among rich people but it’s true in middle and lower group also. So this excuse of the middle class is not at all true. This group generally does not take full responsibility for its result. They think that they are not financially well because of rich people.
Unfortunately, they often pass these misrepresentations onto their children, and the belief carries on growing stronger with each generation. Meanwhile, the world-class takes full responsibility for their own results and directs their mental energy towards getting rich. Instead of wasting their brain power on excuses, they use it to harness their creativity and solve bigger problems.
While the masses use the latest scandal to prove their argument against the rich, millionaires are hard at work thinking of new ideas. One group focuses on excuses and blame, the other, on taking action and getting results. Is it any wonder that the middle class is broke and the world-class is rich? The ambition of the self-made rich individual comes from self-confidence and an ability to use thought and perseverance to get what they want.
Believes in Team Effort (Not solitary)
The average person clocks in at nine and out at five. They are paid for the results of their individual efforts. This limits what they’re worth to an organization. Rich people know it takes a team to build wealth, and they focus much of their effort on finding the right people to leverage their actions and ideas.
The greatest fortunes are built through the collective mental and physical contributions of a world-class team. The rich see themselves as team leaders, whether their teams consist of employees, partners, or outsourced contractors. They assemble their team and carefully orchestrate each move the team makes according to a well-planned strategy.
While the masses are interested in getting personal credit for the results they achieve, the great ones happily give the credit to their teams and prefer to trade personal recognition for profit. So as the middle class proudly displays their ribbons, trophies, and gold watches, the world-class sees their reward as growing net worth.
One group is content to be comfortable, and the other is content to be rich. And one of the primary differences rests in the rich’s willingness and ability to build a team and share the credit. Since the masses don’t make much money, they crave recognition. The masses are more ego-focused than results-oriented.
Dreams about money (Not worries)
The average person spends an extravagant amount of time worrying about money while simultaneously denying its significance. The masses are conditioned in childhood to repeat the phrase; “I don’t care about money.”
Rich people bund such limiting belief at an early stage and focus on acquiring their fortune, oftentimes for the sole purpose of not having to worry about it. After earning their fortunes, many of them continue working because they love what they do. It’s rarely about amassing more silver and gold because the newly rich learn there are limits to what money can do.
While the masses mentally have thoughts of fear and scarcity, the rich are operating in a mindset of love, abundance, and endless possibility. The absence of fear allows them to see life and business as a game, and their financial success serves with their confidence.
Superior intelligence and higher education are not the secrets to their success, but the early adoption of a world-class set of beliefs and philosophies are. These values serve their best interests and move them towards their goals and dreams. The great ones dream about money and acquire it so they can move on to more important pursuits. They always believe in the realization of their greatest potential.
Remember, you cannot be rich unless your start thinking positively about money & rich people. If you have contradictory thoughts about money then it will be away from you in life. In case of contradiction, your subconscious power does not develop good things for you in any area of life.
So change your self-limiting beliefs about money to abundance. Nurture and cherish them with positive feelings then a miracle will happen in your financial life.
