1. You don’t understand basic mathM
Making money is a mathematical process. This is how much you earn, per deal, per hour, out of this, you pay a portion to your suppliers and employees, out of what’s left you pay a percentage as tax and then you reinvest whatever your share of the profit is into other income generating assets. That’s really all there is to it.
If what we just said sounds like nonsense to you, might as well call it out right now.
This is basic math people, addition, subtraction, percentages, multiplication and division. This is all you’re gonna need unless you plan on doing more complex work.
You need to be able to understand data, to organize it and draw conclusions from it, otherwise you can’t accurately measure your business and if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.
2. You focus on Saving instead of Earning
This is the major difference between people who are working to become rich and people who are trying not to be poor.
You can save your way into the middle class, but you can’t save your way into billionaire status.
The only way to really get rich is to earn more and invest it. It’s a simple process: you figure out how to generate more money, then you take this money and invest it in other projects that in turn generate you even more. Repeat the process as many times as you need to.
If you set your expectations exceptionally high and are up for any challenge, you’re on the right track. After all, “no one would ever strike it rich and live their dreams without huge expectations,” Siebold writes.
3. You’re not trying new things
This works hand in hand with the previous point. How do you expect your life to change if you don’t change what you do.
Change is scary, but that where all the good things you didn’t know about yourself lie.
Force yourself into new situations, situations that make you uncomfortable, that you’re scared to face, because that’s where you learn more about who you are and who you really want to be.
4. You are waiting for a miracle
You’re playing the lotto, you’re hoping for a big inheritance, you look for the big score, you play in your mind what you would do with the millions you don’t have, you use the power of thinking, you try to manifest the secret into your life, the universe will reward you for your thoughts or even your god will gift you the life you believe you deserve.
That’s all bullshit!
The miracle is that you are alive right now! The universe, your god or whatever you believe in, did its part. Now it’s your time to do yours!
If you’re waiting for a sign, this is it! I am here to let you know that the Universe wants you to get off your lazy ass and get to work!
If you’ve got some of these beliefs you might want to take a good look at yourself and figure out who you want to be.
5. You don’t have investments
The apartment or house you live in, is not an investment.
No matter how small, learn, understand and experiment with investments. An investment is something that will make you more money than you put in. These are split into 2, active investments and passive investments.
