There is a vast difference between the beliefs of the masses and the world-class about money. If we are optimistic, then we never find any pessimistic person around us, but if we are pessimistic, then we never find any optimistic person around us. How amazing is it? You may see the universe supporting or conspiring against you to achieve your financial goals.
Different Level of Consciousness in World
The masses see life through fear and scarcity. This group believes the world is a tough place, and some people will always try all the means to cheat them. If you’re not careful, people will take what you have. Such thoughts continuously run in the mind of these people. As fear is one of the most strong emotions and it blurs the hope of financial abundance. People with fear-based thinking see the world as a non-supporting place and easily turn themselves as pessimistic. If at all they get support from other people, they think that there must be some hidden advantage to the person who is helping them.
The world-class see the universe in their support to achieve the goals. Once they were also having pessimistic thought process like the masses, but slowly they change the track & choose to become optimistic. With a positive and growth mindset, they get the support of the universe. They became aware of the benefits of controlling their thoughts. The rich choose to see the world as it is, but at the same time as it can be. They see the positive side of people and also visualize a child inside the adult. They see the untapped potential of everyone they interact with. And they see all of this because they made an optimistic choice. The rich have a commonly held belief that the universe, God, or a higher power is right there with them, actively at work guiding them along the path of their ultimate vision of abundance to support millions of people.
They swiftly move toward their goals and dreams believing they are being guided at every turn. While many fear-based thinkers believe people are out to get them, but the world-class believe the world is in their corner cheering them on and helping them along the way. In the same world & same reality; there is a different level of consciousness.
Non-linear Thinking Leads to Great Fortune
The average person thinks of money in a linear term. To earn more money they need to work for more hours. As there are only 24 hours in a day, so their earning cap is fixed. Insite of having several real-life examples of people who have generated a fortune from zero in single life, they ignore it. They think of it as a case of plain luck. They do not want to understand the mechanism behind it.
They’ve been trained to believe by others in the middle-class consciousness that the longer you work the more money you will make. The linear line of thought is the only condition the masses understand. If a corporate employee wants to make more money, his or her first thought is to get an MBA. In the linear term, more education equals more money. More hard work means more money, in reality, this is the most inefficient method of making money.
# Fact of the day: In the world, more than 70% of billionaires are self-made. #
The rich know big money originates in a non-linear way. Even without knowing the above fact, just look around in your society or city, you will find such self-made rich people. It requires letting go of everything you think you know about earning money and making space for a higher level of thought. The rich are masters at taking a single idea and leveraging it so many ways that it’s difficult to identify its point of origin.
The masses think about how much they can get paid for doing something, which may not be necessarily of their interest. But the rich people figure out what they love to do and then find out how to make money doing it. The goal of money is the same, but the road they travel is just opposite to achieve it. One is the linear path and the other is non-linear. One is all about money and the other is filled with enthusiasm, joy, and passion. Who would you bet on to earn more? For the masses, linear thinking is unrelated to making money. For world-class, non-linear thinking is the epicenter of every great fortune.
Power of Beliefs
The masses have a deep-rooted belief that wealth, prosperity, and great success are only for few people who have extreme talent, specialized knowledge, or luck. The middle class struggles because they expect it. When they achieve uncommon success or get what they want unexpectedly, they’re convinced it’s a trick and their good fortune won’t last. And it happens in reality. They could not able to reset their financial thermostat & soon reach their original financial position. For example, if one person is managing 500K annually and suddenly he gets 5000K by some means. Within few months or a few years, he will lose his extra 4500K and come to the original level of 500K. Years of middle-class programming have created this losing cycle that usually follows them to the end.
The world-class has the polar opposite belief that success, fulfillment, and happiness are the natural order of existence. This single belief drives the great ones to behave in ways that virtually guarantee their success. While the masses are playing video games, watching television, and surfing the internet, champions are setting goals and designing strategies to make them a reality. It’s never like the masses are not having the desire to succeed, but their belief system holds them back from making it big.
After all, why should I stretch myself dreaming of being rich when I don’t believe it’s possible for me? While the rich appear more ambitious, it’s actually their belief that drives them to succeed, and the more they succeed, the stronger their belief grows. They are on an upward spiral of success, while the masses are on a downward spiral of mediocrity. (Blog is inspired by one of my favorite books “How Rich People Think” by Steve Siebold.)
