You have heard often that you are what you think you are, and what you think you are is what you attract, become and do. But it’s a pity that many still believe that their life must be someone else’s responsibility. Your life is your own 100% responsibility and fault, you believe it or not, whatever happens to you, you create and attract them by how you think.
Many of us want to take responsibility of our lives when things are well, when we have some money, but when things are not well, no money, problems at hand, it’s always someone else’s fault and with such a mentality we never get to realize the reason why we keep on experiencing the same problems repeatedly.
We keep on facing the same financial struggles year after year because we keep using the same thinking year after year, and that same thinking keeps us going through the same cycle over and over and we keep on wandering why our lives cannot get ahead.
If you don’t have money, you don’t keep on thinking why you don’t have money and why you are poor; such thinking keeps you caged in poor problems and lifestyles.
Here is what you must do and must be doing when you don’t have money;
- Research: Study positive books. Study personal development books. Study financial, business, entrepreneurship educating book. Study to organize success ideas. Study how your mind works and how you can program it for success. Study the successful people. Study the future success.
- Plan Success: Plan about what you want to achieve in life. Plan how you are going to help and make your family, friends and community successful. What positive impact will you leave in these people’s hearts and community? Remember my words, “You are the future history of your family”. So, instead of wasting your time worrying and complaining, study and plan how you are going to work to achieve the success plans in your head. You achieve your thinking.
- Meditate: Spend time in solitude to find, know, understand and bring out your potential, talents or god given gifts within you. You are not just born accidently, they is something special placed inside you that you must find, develop and share to your community. You are here on this earth for a purpose, and that purpose is already inside you. Spend that time knowing yourself.
Do you know why many people are living miserable lives? The answer is what the Native Indians said, “If you are given a gift and you do not use it to save others, it becomes a curse”, many have cursed themselves for not sharing the good they already have inside themselves.
- Associate Positive: You are the people you spend time with. Spend your time with people who are successful or those who want to become successful. Learn from them how they handle and overcome problems. Learn how they think and what they believe in that makes them become successful. Know how they spend and use their time, what they read, watch, discuss about, and who they spend their time with.
A time will come when you will hit a “Pot of Gold”, and when you are already equipped with right ideas, plans, and mindsets, the pot of gold will be yours; but if not, you will never have it. If you don’t know where your money must go before it comes, you will lose it all to those who are ready where to take that money.
Most of the things we want and will achieve in this life, require money and if you are not preparing and not prepared, success will make you a pass over.
So what’s the key to attain success? Preparation, preparation and preparation. So how do you prepare? By developing those qualities in yourself that will make you successful. By doing those things and mastering those principles that produces success.
“Do you want to know how people become successful? When you don’t have money; think good ideas and plan how you are going to execute those ideas. When the pot of money to use shows up, execute those ideas. Period” – Maradona Chalwe
