You know and I know that money is abundant, right? I mean, we’ve both read the books and watched the movies. “Scarcity is a state of mind”… “The world is an abundant place”… and all that. We all know, deep down, that there’s more than enough to go around. Still, there’s this natural human instinct to keep certain things secret.
What I’m about to share with you is the shortcut to rapid success. It’s the reason that so many struggle and fail… while a select few skyrocket with little effort. Regular men and women, just like you, are doing this RIGHT NOW to become millionaires. But before I lay out the road map, there’s a few things you need to know…
There’s a segment of the population I call “hidden millionaires”, because you don’t see them on TV. They aren’t profiled by glossy magazines because they aren’t especially talented, bright, charismatic or ambitious. They look, walk and talk just like normal people.
The difference is that while most live with nose to grindstone… these millionaires work very little. While most eat processed yet affordable foods… these millionaires eat delicious meals that keep them young and healthy. While most are never more than one step ahead of the bill collector… these millionaires laugh at money worries. But those are just the superficial differences. What really separates them from the crowd are three uncommon beliefs:
Wealth isn’t the green paper you shove in your pockets. It isn’t the hours you log into your time sheet. It isn’t diamonds or paintings or real estate.
And it isn’t the feel-good clichés that gurus try to sell you, either. It isn’t happiness or love. It isn’t everlasting joy. In the mind of the millionaire, love and diamonds and happiness are all fruits. But the root is something else.
So, what is the root of true wealth? We’ll get to that in a moment. For now, just know that it’s related to their second belief…
Why is it, then, that some amass fortunes while others tread water? Think about it. There’s a hard limit to the amount of effort any person can exert. So effort can’t be the answer.
These millionaires draw a firm line between effort and money. They don’t believe that labor is the path to wealth. They walk a different road.
While the world is chasing things, the wealthy are moving in a different direction. Instead of hopping on the hamster wheel, expecting it to lead to wealth, millionaires reposition themselves so that rewards flow to them.
Mind you, this isn’t a physical repositioning. They don’t pack and move to a new city. Instead, they reposition their approach to life, which changes their relation to the flow of wealth. Catching fish at the bottom of a river is hard. But when you move upstream it gets much easier.
