A Few Simple Things You Must Do If You Want To Be Wealthy
Making money is easy when you move to cause rather than livingout effects.
Let me draw a simple analogy to clarify my point.
Imagine standing before a huge waterfall. You're thirsty andthe water is fresh, clean, and pure. You can take as much as youlike.
How much can you take home with you?
It all depends on the size of your container.
You can take a thimble, a small cup, a gallon bucket, abarrel, or even a tank truck.
Similarly, the amount of money in the worldis like this fountain of abundance. Trillions of dollarscirculate around the world. The fountain is abundant.
Some people can hold billions, others millions, othershundreds of thousands, others tens of thousands, othersthousands, others hundreds, and yet others only a pocketful.
These things are actually only the effects.
Effect is what you see in the visible world. They are theresults of a wealth building strategy that worked.
What, however, are the causes? How are people able to buildwealth in the first place?
Cause is what happens in the invisible world before theeffect becomes apparent in the world of the senses.
The cause of money is thought, and the amount of money in your life is based on only onething: the size of your thinking. This is the most fundamentalwealth knowledge you need to change your destiny.
If you're a small thinker, you go to the fountain ofabundance with a small container. It may be a tin can to holdenough change to keep you alive. It may be a bucket that givesyou enough to survive in some comfort?but not enough to behappy.
If, on the other hand, you're a big thinker, you go to thefountain of abundance driving your tank truck and you livereally well, with all the necessities of life easily taken careof for your generation and maybe one or two generations afteryou. You're even in a place to share wealth. You're a masterat some wealth building system.
Then, of course, there are the really big thinkers. Theydon't just have a tank truck--they have a whole fleet of tanktrucks lining up before the fountain of abundance. They can, ifthey choose, buy small islands.
Your thinking decides the size of the container you use to earnmoney.
How do you expand your thinking to be bigger?
The first thing you do is use your imagination. If yousimply practice learning how to think in bigger and biggeramounts, you'll find a better size to hold the abundance thatyou want to have in your life.
The next thing you'll want to expand is the size of your heart. The more you can give of value and the larger the amount ofpeople that you can serve, the more money that you'll make.
This is why the higher up you are in an organization, the morepeople you serve, and, consequently, the higher your salary.
But, of course, an even better way to make money is to work foryourself. When you work for yourself, then your pool of peopleis almost unlimited. The greater the benefit that you offerothers, the more people you will find to accept that offer.
Finally, when your imagination and your heart have beenstretched enough, you'll begin to seek ways to acquire knowledgeof your field and before you know it you'll be a highly-paid expert.
The amount of money in the world is like this fountain. Trillions of dollars float around the planet. Creating wealthis a skill that many people and nations have learned.
It is my sincere hope that I have given you some valuable ideasto mull over. When you consider how much better your life willbe when you are in charge, you may want to look even deeper intohow you can expand your imagination, your generosity, and yourknowledge of your industry or profession.
