We need to have a little chat — and it might get a little awkward. But those are the conversations that change us, so let’s talk. You see, you’ve said time and again that you want to build wealth. To achieve great things. To retire young, rich and happy.
You want to spend your active days exploring the world, raising incredible children and helping your parents age well.
You want things to be different from how they currently are. You don’t want to wake up, drag yourself out of bed and spend hours in traffic to sit at a job you despise. You don’t want to take advice from that boss you can’t stand, to live your life as a footnote in someone else’s book.
I get it. I’ve been there. But, let me be perfectly honest: That drudgery you currently call life will probably be yours forever. Let me explain why.
The reason you haven’t succeeded yet
Each week, you have a new idea. Each month, you shift focus. Every book you read tells you another way to make money. Every podcast you listen to, every dinner conversation, every blog post you read — each gives you more and more ideas for building wealth.
So, you keep changing your mind. You’ve contemplated ideas, such as:
- Real estate investing
- Multilevel marketing
- Getting a better job
- Selling products on Amazon
- Selling information online
- Inventing a product
- Becoming a movie/rock star
- Creating a “muse”
- Saving your job income
- Writing a book
. . . and probably 100 other ideas. You’ve probably bought educational courses on a number of these methods and not finished a single one. Each week, you have a different passion, something else that you are going to do to achieve financial freedom.
So, you pivot and, once again, ask me what I think of the idea. And this has been going on for years. But, it’s time to stop — because here’s the shockingly simple truth about building wealth. This truth is so simple, it can be summed up in three little words: “It all works.”
