Self-made millionaire Steve Siebold, author of “How Rich People Think” spent about 25 years researching other millionaires all over the world. Siebold realizes that each view and thought about money and wealth have a stronger impact than you think.
According to Siebold, 8 attitudes make you forever only in the ranks of the poor. So if you never think like below, proving you are very smart, sober, and ambitious, sooner or later you will become rich!
1. It’s hard for me to become rich
Many people feel that wealth has nothing to do with them, they always think that they are not talented and capable enough to earn a lot of money.
Rich people think completely differently, they will say to themselves: “Why not me? If other people can do it, I can do it too, if they make money, I can too.”
Siebold explains that trust is very important, it keeps you motivated to work hard and ready to challenge yourself with higher and higher goals.
2. Must have a high education to be rich
Many successful people have master’s or doctoral degrees, but this is not a prerequisite to becoming rich. You just need to do well and you will be profitable, no matter how educated you are.
3. Work hard and you’ll be rich
Just work hard and you will become rich, it’s a very mythical thought. Rich people appreciate the value of hard work, but they are also deeply aware that if you only work hard, you will never reach success.
“If hard work was the secret to financial success, every construction worker and cocktail waitress would be rich,” Siebold said.
Want to become rich, in addition to hard work, you also have to know how to apply intelligence to work smartly, creatively, come up with effective solutions, bring the highest profit.
4. Rich people are very lucky people
Poor people often look at the rich and consider that they are a small part of the lucky people. Actually no, wealth is not a privilege from nothing but the result of their efforts and wise investments.
5. To get rich, you need capital
Most people think that to start a business, you must have the initial capital. If you think like that, you will miss out on many opportunities to get rich. As long as you have a good idea and the ability to execute it, there will be many investors willing to pour capital for you.
6. As long as you have enough retirement money, you’ll be fine
Ordinary people take the goal of having enough money to cover retirement as the main goal. But such people will only be classified as “enough to live”, difficult to become rich.
Siebold advises not to be afraid of big ambitions because most people will likely earn more than they spend.
If you do not think like this, you have ambition, after winning the set goals, the dream of being rich is within reach.
7. Work to make money
“The rich have always known working for the sole purpose of making money is the worst strategy for building wealth,” Siebold says. Most people work for money but rich people do what they like and then figure out how to make money from it.
The part of people in the top ranks are not looking for the job that gives them the highest salary, but the job that makes them most interested and passionate. Then with their best efforts, they will become the leader in their field and then the money will flow to them.
8. If you want to have a career, it is inevitable that you will neglect your family
Many people believe that you can’t expect to have a successful career and still have time to spend with your family. But rich people can always do that, having to sacrifice one of two things is never something they think about.
