While many people desire to become wealthy (whatever definition that is varies vastly among people) their desire must be backed even more so with a strong motivator. It is not enough to simply want to have significantly more money if you are actually hoping to achieve it. You must find within something that will push you to achieve in ways you may have never experienced before. Lets look at this parallel as a comparison.
If you are in fairly poor running shape and you said I want to run 10 miles today, it is very unlikely that you would or could. Not only are you not in shape for it, but there most likely is not enough of motivator to push you to do so since it would be such a difficult feet to achieve to begin with. If on the other hand you introduce a strong enough of a motivator, this could likely change regardless of the shape you are in. Lets say you would be offered one million dollars to do so, could you do it? I would say yes. Or perhaps something more life threatening to yourself of a loved one made it absolutely necessary to run a distance of 10 miles to get help, could you do it? Again probably yes. While you will likely not be faced with this kind of decision or necessity to “create wealth” you do have to find something very motivating to do so. I also want to tell you that a simple answer of money itself will almost for sure not do. Despite what some may say, money itself is not enough. Try to look for something tangible from it. One thing someone told me was they had a very difficult job and life circumstances, not your run of the mill type but really difficult times for this person. They where able to propel themselves to study and dig out from their hole and achieve great things because they wanted a better life based on owning a home and a job as an engineer.
I can’t stress enough on the will and desire for this or any other pursuit in life for that matter. You will not get far without a rock solid determination and persistence at all costs attitude. Also here is a tiny bit of encouragement in this. For those who have truly fought for something often are not only more thankful but are often more successful than others who seemingly did not have to try as hard. Michael Jordan the famous Basketball player failed and never made his high school basketball team. But he persisted! With this kind of desire, you start to forget about failure altogether. Failure is something that pushes people back into a pit but with enough determination it will not matter, you will keep going for broke each time.
Read, read and read some more on wealth building strategies and determine what kind of methods work the best for you and given your situation. For some the path is shorter, for others longer but reading ways and educating yourself in this pursuit will give you the tools you need to implement methods that are tailor made for you.
Another thing to keep in mind, is be thankful in as much as you feel you can be then increase it even more. Meaning try to be thankful for everything. You may have to work at this to start, many of us are only temporarily thankful for extra ordinary occurrences in life and this robs us of happiness. Thankfulness is another key that can help you out in life. Studies have shown that Gratitude actually increases your quality of life. While many people think that money alone will do this, don’t be fooled, it can but it will not if your mind set is not right to begin with.
I am sure many people where hoping to read a bunch of tips on what to do specifically with their money in this article. However the truth is, there are thousands of tips on this and finding info on this is as easy as reading it online. I feel the true factor in determining what makes you or breaks you is your will power, determination and increasing this is the first step in pursuing your dreams.
