Change your life today. Don’t gamble on the future, act now, without delay. – Simone de Beauvoir
Reading the foreword by Dan Miller for Jaime Tardy’s The Eventual Millionaire. There is some misconception on wealth.
Myth 1: We chase after money directly.
Money is a byproduct. Money is the result of values that we put in for other people. People pay us for a work well done.
Myth 2: Envy other rich people.
Successful rich people do not envy other rich people. They learn from them, and still remain humble. They learn from others, and at the same time, teach others as well.
Myth 3: Be greedy and stingy.
Wealthy people are not stingy. They freely share, for they believe that there is enough wealth for everyone. They believe in abundance.
Myth 4: Wealthy people are selfish.
We do not live for ourselves alone. We live by contributing and helping one another. The richer we are, the more we are in a position to help others.
Myth 5: Rich is a game of luck.
We don’t get rich by being lucky. We get rich by putting in the effort, chasing after the opportunities, being relentless in pursuing our dreams.
Differentiate facts from myth and you will be well on your way to wealth. Don’t be ignorant. Don’t be stubborn. Live your life well – in happiness and full of abundance.
