Avoid These Mistakes To Become Wealthy

Wanting to become wealthy is something that every single person on earth strives for. 

Whether its to take care of your family, or just have the nicest watches

I know that at some point in your life you’ve thought to yourself, “Man, I wish I was a millionaire.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret… being a millionaire is something ANYONE can do.

Too many people let some common, and frankly, stupid mistakes hold them back from achieving their goals…

I know because I let these mistakes hold me back for way too long. 

When you can identify what you’re actually doing and where you want to go, you can break away from your bad habits and build the life you know you deserve. 

To Become Wealthy, You Need To Start Making A Change

I was 16 years old when I decided to become wealthy. But my problem was, once I said I was going to be a millionaire, I didn’t change anything…

I kept going to the bowling alley every weekend…

I kept smoking weed

And,I kept stealing quarters from my part-time job to play arcade games

From the age of 16 to 25 years old, I was completely broke. It was only then that I had an epiphany…

IF I WANNA GET RICH, I NEED TO START MAKING REAL MONEY.

Finally, I got it through my head that no one was going to hand me a blank check and suddenly I’d be rich

Becoming successful and creating wealth means making changes to create that reality for yourself. 

We can say whatever we want, but the truth is…

YOU WON’T GET ANYWHERE IF YOU DON’T MAKE THE CHANGES THAT ARE GOING TO TAKE YOU TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE. 

Remove What’s Blocking You From Success

When people commit to becoming wealthy, they almost NEVER start by removing what’s holding them back. 

That mistake alone is going to cost you opportunities, time, and money. Not to mention, it’s going to keep you small when you need to be thinking big. 

Anything that holds you back from your biggest potential is an obstacle that must be dominated. That can be

  • An idea or concept that doesn’t help you expand
  • A friend or family member that doesn’t think you can do it
  • A bad habit that is distracting you from your goals 

Whatever your block may be if you don’t eliminate it the moment you start to grow your income…

It WILL cost you. 

Add Skills That Will Help You Become Wealthy

When I was in my teens, after I made my millionaire decision, I spent money on EVERYTHING except the tools I needed to make more money. 

Let’s pretend that instead of getting rich you want to build a house. When you go to build the house…

You don’t have a blueprint…

Or wood and concrete…

Or even a hammer and nails. 

When you want to achieve your goals and become wealthy, you need the right tools that will help you “build the house”. 

If you can’t invest finances, invest your time and attention in learning high-income skills and information that will help you get ahead. 

Refocusing what you’re doing on creating your legacy is the foundation you need for your future. 

Reinforce Your Decision Every Day

The most important thing you could do while you become wealthy is remind yourself what you’re doing every day. 

Every morning and every evening, you need to reinforce what it is you’re doing to keep you focused on where you’re gonna go. 

The best time to do this is whenever you mess up. When you fail, you can’t turn your attention to your failure and guilt.

Anytime something doesn’t go the way I plan, I ask myself, “Where am I going next?”

I WANT MY ATTENTION ON THE FUTURE, NOT ON THE PAST

Next Steps

Once you’re able to look at what you’re doing and make the right changes…

It’s only a matter of time before you become truly wealthy and build your legacy. 

Now, if you want me to tell you that any of this is easy, you’re out of luck because it is not. This might be one of the hardest things you’ll ever have to do

It definitely was for me. 

What you have to remember is that when you pay the price today…

You can pay any price tomorrow.
