The successful people teach and pass on to the next generation success beliefs and ideas to their children, and these beliefs and ideas begin from homes, for example prosperity living success and business and entrepreneurship success. While for the poor and the middle class pass on what they know too, the employee becoming knowledge and beliefs to their children; that’s why children become what their parents did and became, unless otherwise some change happen.
We might not do the same activities our parents did, but most of us we are still following the same rules and philosophies our parents used as our own way of life to date, for example the 20th century philosophy of “Go to school, look for a high paying safe secure job with a pension and a job will take care of you”, this is an old obsolete advice and idea in this technological age where robotic labor is competing with human labor. By the way job security is a joke today.
Unless otherwise some changes happen, most of us are what our parents did and lived past wise. That’s why rich kids end up rich with their lives and the poor and middle class kids end up poor and middle class because of the beliefs passed on to us children and the beliefs we will pass on to the next generation to come too. Remember “you become the advice you accept”. The problem is if the belief is negative, pain, anger, criticism is passed on from generation to generation.
Therefore, don’t just follow because my parents are doing it or did it, question it, and question everything. “Don’t just teach your children to read, teach them to question what they read. Teach them to question everything” said George Carlin, comedian.
Personal Question: What advice did you get from your parents about money and lifestyle?
Personal Question: Is the advice helping you today to live a happy successful life?
Personal Questions: Are the beliefs you are following today working effective or have become obsolete in this technological information generation? Remember what worked yesterday is not a guarantee that it will work today, or the future to come.
If the advice you accepted from your parents, family, school or religion is making you happy today, making you become successfully knowledgeable, wealthy and empowering you spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically every day that comes, keep on expanding it into more growth. But if not, it’s time to change and if you don’t change, nothing is going to change. Get this what Einstein said that “Insanity is doing the same thing, and expecting different results”. It’s only through changing that our lives change too; but without change, our lives without change too. “Nothing moves until something is moved”, again said by Albert Einstein.
Just get this point, humans cannot move forward until they let go of old, obsolete ideas, as Jim Rohn put it clear here that “Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change”. You are the only one who can make the changes you want, no one else, but you your only self.
