“MOST PEOPLE ARE TOO LAZY TO BE WEALTHY”
I am just believing that you are not among the dummy thinkers.
Most people are too lazy to be rich. They may say they want to be, but they don’t. They may buy a lottery ticket as a sort of half-hearted gesture of winning to be rich, but they aren’t prepared to put in the work. They aren’t prepared to make sacrifices, study, learn, work their socks off, put in the effort and make it a determine and concentrated focus of their life.
And for a lot of them – not you – it is because they believe that if you do so you are somehow tainted with evil (coming up in rule 6). But is it OK to work hard to make money? is it a worthwhile thing to want? It depends on why and what you are going to do with it i guess. (soon to come in rule 8).
Most people don’t want to do the work. Yes they want the money but only if it comes to them by accident, by luck by chance. Then it’s OK. Then it’s not tainted with sweat and work and passion and focus.
I think if you look at anyone rich enough to be a role model – Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Alan Sugar, Warren Buffet, Gordon Ramsey, James Dyson, Petr Kellner, – you will notice only one thing in common . . . they work their stocks off. They might make their money from computer, sales, cookery, business, the film industry, vacuum cleaners, pop music, radio stations, what ever. But one thing they all share is the ability to make more than most of us do in a month.
And that is the wonderful thing about wealth – it is lying around waiting to be claimed (remember rule 1 “anybody can make money – it isn’t selective or discriminative”). And those who claim it are those one’s who get up early, work hard and put in the hours.
And you are going to have to as well. I don’t have longer weight shifters or decorative spongers in my team. I want hard working, dedicated focus, ambitious, driven money makers. With a sense of fun of course.
That’s much we can take for this series. Watch out for the next series “Rule 6” an see what you will learn.
But i want us to do something, something that will let me know that you are following, learning and practicing our discussion so far.
what i mean is that you will reply to this massage what ever you have learned and practice so far.
