Wealth files reveal the secret of ‘how can one be rich’. If you take public opinion on ‘whether people want to be rich’. They’ll look at you as if you were crazy. “Of course I want to be rich,” they’ll say. The truth, however, is that most people don’t really want to be rich. Why? Because they have a lot of negative beliefs about wealth in their subconscious mind that tell them there is something wrong with being rich. (Image credit-pixabay)
What is Your Response?
If we further drill down on ‘What are the possible negatives beliefs about being rich or trying to get rich?’ Below are the type of response we get from various people.
“Being rich is the right to only few people. I am not the part of that group”
“Rich people are not happy”
“Rich people are selfish and greedy. I really do not want to any of that….means I do not want to be rich”
“What if I make it and lose it? Then I’ll really be a failure.”
“I’ll never know if people like me for myself or for my money.”
“I’ll be at the highest tax bracket and have to give half my money to the government.”
“It’s too much work.”
“I could lose my health trying.”
“I could be robbed.” “My kids could be kidnapped.”
“It’s too much responsibility. I’ll have to manage all that money. I’ll have to really understand investments.”
“I have to hire expensive accountants and lawyers.”
And on and on it goes….
Positive + Negative = Neutral Result
We have both type of belief about money in our mind. Positive beliefs about wealth include why being rich would be wonderful. However, for many people, associated negative belief includes information as to why being rich might not be so wonderful. This means they have mixed internal messages about wealth. One part of them joyfully says, “Having more money will make life a lot more fun.” But then another part screams, “Yeah, but I’m going to have to work like a dog! What fun is that?” This type of mixed messages may seem innocent enough, but in reality, they are one of the major reasons most people never become rich.
You can look at it like this. The universe, which is another way of saying “higher power,” is akin to a big mail-order department. It is constantly delivering people, events, and things to you. You “order” what you get by sending energetic messages out to the universe based on your predominant beliefs. Again, based on the Law of Attraction, the universe will do its best to say yes and support you. But if you have mixed messages in your file, the universe can’t understand what you want.
One minute the universe hears that you want to be rich, so it begins sending you opportunities for wealth. But then it hears you say, “Rich people are greedy,” so the universe begins to support you in not having much money. But then you think, “Having a lot of money makes life so much more enjoyable,” so the poor universe, confused, restarts sending you opportunities for more money. The next day you’re in an uninspired mood so you think, “Money’s not that important.” The frustrated universe finally screams, “Make up your final mind! I’ll get you what you want, just tell me what it is!”
The number one reason most people don’t get what they want is that they don’t know what they want.
If you are not achieving the wealth you desire, there’s a good chance it’s because, first, you subconsciously don’t really want wealth, or second, you’re not willing to do what it takes to create it.
Three Level of Wanting
The first level is “I want to be rich.” That’s another way of saying, “I’ll take it if it falls in my lap.” Wanting alone is useless. Have you noticed that wanting doesn’t necessarily lead to “having”? Notice also that wanting without having leads to more wanting. Wanting becomes habitual and leads only to itself, creating a perfect circle that goes exactly nowhere. Wealth does not come from merely wanting it. How do you know this is true? With a simple reality check: billions of people want to be rich, relatively few are.
The second level of wanting is “I choose to be rich.” This entails deciding to become rich. Choosing is a much stronger energy and goes hand in hand with being responsible for creating your reality. The word decision comes from the Latin word decidere, which means “to kill off any other alternatives.” Choosing is better but not best.
Third Level (Most Important!)
The third level of wanting is “I commit to being rich.” The definition of the word commit is “to devote oneself unreservedly.” This means holding absolutely nothing back; giving 100 percent of everything you’ve got to achieving wealth. It means being willing to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. This is the warrior’s way. No excuses, no ifs, no buts, no maybes—and failure is not an option. The warrior’s way is simple: “I will be rich or I will die trying.”
“I commit to being rich.” Try saying that to yourself….What comes up for you? For some, it feels empowering. For others, it feels daunting.
Most people would never truly commit to being rich. If you asked them, “Would you bet your life that in the next ten years you will be wealthy?” most would say, “No way!” That’s the difference between rich people and poor people. It’s precisely because people won’t truly commit to being rich that they are not rich and most likely never will be.
Some might say, “What are you talking about? I work my butt off, I’m trying real hard. Of course I’m committed to being rich.” And I would reply, “That you’re trying means little. The definition of commitment is to devote oneself unreservedly.” The key word is unreservedly. Which means you’re putting everything, and I mean everything, you’ve got into it. Most people I know who are not financially successful have limits on how much they are willing to do, how much they are willing to risk, and how much they are willing to sacrifice. Although they think they’re willing to do whatever it takes, upon deeper questioning I always find they have plenty of conditions around what they are willing to do and not do to succeed!
Way Ahead to Getting Rich
Getting rich is not a stroll in the park, It takes focus, courage, knowledge, expertise, 100 percent of your effort, a never-give-up attitude, and of course a rich mindset. You also have to believe in your heart of hearts that you can create wealth and that you absolutely deserve it. Again, what this means is that, if you are not fully, totally, and truly committed to creating wealth, chances are you won’t.
Rich people are totally clear that they want wealth. They are steady in their desire. They are fully committed to creating wealth. As long as it’s legal, moral, and ethical, they will do whatever it takes to have wealth. Rich people do not send mixed messages to the universe. Poor people do.
Are you willing to work sixteen hours a day? Rich people are. Are you willing to work seven days a week and give up most of your weekends? Rich people are. Are you willing to sacrifice seeing your family, your friends, and give up your recreations and hobbies? Rich people are. Are you willing to risk all your time, energy, and start-up capital with no guarantee of returns? Rich people are.
For a time, hopefully a short time but often a long time, rich people are ready and willing to do all of the above. Are you?
It’s interesting to note, however, that once you do commit, the universe will bend over backward to support you and even create miracles for you. But first, you have to commit!
