There has been a long standing question surrounding the choice of being rich or poor.
The question, however, should really be – who is responsible for your life?
It is often easy to blame others for your circumstances, but that is what makes the rich different – they are the pilot of their life.
In Tom Corley’s five-year Rich Habits study of 233 rich people and 128 poor people he discovered that your beliefs dictate your circumstances in life.
Those who are wealthy have different beliefs than those who are poor or stuck in the middle class.
We adopt the beliefs our parent, family, mentors, culture, and environment.
Most who were raised in poverty inherited limiting beliefs that hold them back in life.
Those who are able to rise from poverty and become wealthy found mentors who possessed success beliefs or employed certain strategies that enabled them to remove their limiting beliefs and implant success beliefs, effectively re-programming their entire belief system.
In this week’s video we discuss key choices that everyone has:
- Being the pilot of your own life
- Taking responsibility for your choices
- Understanding circumstances won’t change until you do
- Creating your own luck
- Take action to find opportunity
