People like to think that there is only so much money to go around and that they need to fight their way through the crowds to get their piece of the wealth pie.
But did you know that everyone has as much opportunity to find wealth in their lives as everyone else? It’s true, according to self-made millionaire, Steve Siebold.
People just need to be willing to go out and get their slice of life. But it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to tell you that not everyone rises to the occasion when it comes to becoming wealthy.
There are many ways to tell someone is never going to be rich.
Here are 10 signs that show if you keep on this path, you’ll be in a hard way for the rest of your life.
1) You Work Harder Than You Need To
People who earn a lot of money will attribute a lot of their success to working smarter and not harder. You think that working hard is going to bring your the riches you want, but that’s the song our parents were singing.
Today, short cuts and streamlining is the way to go.
2) You’re Always Saving Instead of Earning
Saving for your retirement is great, but you need to have enough money to enjoy the here and now too.
Instead of worrying about how to build your senior spending account, focus on bringing in more money now so you can pad that account, plus all your other ones.
3) Spending More Than You Have
People who buy everything on credit, run up credit card balances, and pay minimum balances each month aren’t getting anywhere in life. You don’t want to be like that, so stop buying shoes and sofas you can’t pay cash for.
4) A Weekly Paycheque is All You Need
Ambition is a beautiful thing, but many people just don’t aspire to be more than they are right now. How boring is a life without dreams?
If you want to stay in a humdrum lifestyle, that’s your choice, but don’t complain that you don’t have enough to get by if you rest of your laurels regarding your paycheque.
5) What’s Investing?
Some of the richest people in the world got that way by investing their money. Remember, work smarter not harder? Well investing is part of that. Put your money out on the corner to work for you.
6) You are Living Someone Else’s Life
Every day that you get up and go to work for someone else is a day you are robbing yourself of success and riches.
Don’t quit your day job just yet, but if you’ve got any ambition in life, start working toward your own gig. It’s the only way to get rich.
7) Your Comfort Zone is on Lockdown
You never try anything new and order the same turkey sandwich with bacon and mayo everyday for lunch.
Want to find success and money in your life? Get out of your comfort zone.
8) Your Money Has No Direction
Earning money is great, but earning money with no sweet clue what you are going to do with it makes you think you have enough of it.
If you set goals for yourself, you’ll be able to work toward earning the money you need for those specific things. Book a trip, buy a car, or put an offer in on a house: you’ll find the money.
9) Spend First, Save Last
People who don’t pay themselves first will never relish in money. Rather than paying everyone else before yourself, throw some money in an account for a rainy day.
10) You Don’t Think You Can Be Rich
Whether you think you can be rich or you think you can’t, you are right. You have to believe you can manifest wealth in your life in order to find ways to make it happen.
Stop fooling yourself into thinking this is all there is for you in life. Go get what you really want.
