Are you ready to GET RICH QUICK? Well just hold your horses.
This week we’re going to look at the concept of the get rich quick mentality, and next week, I am actually going to tell you just what it takes to literally GET RICH—the money kind of rich (but not necessarily as QUICKLY as those greedy money-spirits insist you should).
Everyone wants to GET RICH QUICK, and there are a mazillion experts ready to take your money and tell you how. But don’t blame them.
For every peep who tries to tell us how to get rich quick, there are a mazillion more peeps who want to know how to get as much money as FAST as they can, so they can finally be happy. With that frame of mind, unfortunately, few will ever experience true wealth or true happiness.
Before we go on, let’s put this money thing into perspective, so when we do get the cash, we will have the mindset that’s fit for it. Here’s what some wise folks like Ben, Momma T, and Ralphy have to say…
Who is wise? He that learns from everyone. Who is powerful? He that governs his passions. Who is rich? He that is content. Who is that? Nobody. ~Benjamin Franklin
Even the rich are hungry for love, for being cared for, for being wanted, for having someone to call their own. ~Mother Teresa
We are rich only through what we give, and poor only through what we refuse. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
To be able to give away riches is mandatory if you wish to possess them. This is the only way that you will be truly rich. ~Muhammad Ali
That man is rich whose pleasures are the cheapest. ~Henry David Thoreau
He who is contented is rich. ~Lao Tzu
A rich man is nothing but a poor man with money. ~W. C. Fields
I receive a ton of spam every day. Much of it offers to help me get out of debt or get rich quick. It would be funny if it weren’t so exciting. ~Bill Gates
Think and grow rich. ~Napoleon Hill
I had no idea that being your authentic self could make me as rich as I’ve become. If I had, I’d have done it a lot earlier. ~Oprah Winfrey
There are people who have money and people who are rich. ~Coco Chanel
Why do these super stars talk about riches this way? Because being RICH first and foremost has NOTHING to do with money! It has everything to do with the way you live your life and the happiness you feel every day. To get rich, you have to first stop thinking about money, and start thinking about what drives you with excitement and passion.
This is exactly why I am a business and Lifestyle Designer. It is my mission to help others live lives of fullness and true purpose, the kind of lives that look and feel wealthy in a variety of ways, not just in terms of money! In your life and in your work, you can be rich every day in every way! Lifestyle design is about CHOICES and MINDSET!
I am RICH. I live my life with a mindset that is positive and that also draws me to amazing opportunities where I can connect with and help others in very significant ways. I have total freedom, and I can set my own schedule. My life affords me many exceptional experiences, and I have had the privilege of getting to share time with some extraordinary people. I have traveled to some wonderful places like Maui, Kauai, (Hawaii), Trinidad, England, France, Canada, Jamaica, and Mexico to name just a few. I have stayed in the finest hotels and eaten at world class restaurants many times over. I have been invited to places and events some people only dream of going. I have purchased clothes and shoes that made me feel very privileged. I have experienced many crazy and adventurous activities, too. Yet those things are NOT what make me rich.
Why I am RICH
I am RICH because I am able to fully enjoy every moment of my life, and I am RICH because I have a clear purpose for living. I know who I am and why I am here, and every day in my life and in my work I live that mission and calling.
Yes, I have definitely experienced the finer things of life, but I have also found absolute joy, wealth, and clarity of purpose in the simplest things as well. I’ve sat with a friend who was horribly sick, and held her hand as she painfully recovered. I helped bring a baby into the world. I was in the room when a very dear loved one passed away, and I’ve dined fabulously on almost nothing with people who had very little food to share. I’ve visited complete strangers in the hospital, and held onto faith myself when I thought I was going to die. I’ve stayed up all night with feverish children, and prayed for my puppy that miraculously came through. I sat in a baby pool with a home-made (but fabulous) cocktail, and enjoyed sailing in an old rickety boat. I’ve played battleship in the car with my honey on a frosty cold night at the lake as we sipped on hot cocoa, I’ve shared a burger with a pal when there wasn’t much cash, and made chicken and dumplings for 30!
Wealth and being RICH is a quality of being. It’s really all about who you are as a person and what makes you happy, and what you offer to others! That must come from within because unless it starts there no amount of money will bring you joy! Once you own that, you can confidently design the business of your dreams, based around your calling and your passion.
My passion—what drives me every day of my life—is empowering others to find their unique gifts and calling and use them to create over-the-top lives and businesses. I would do this for free. It is who I am.
For you it may be designing and creating super stylish interior spaces, or mentoring others to rise to the top, or helping people to get well and strong and energized, or it may be informing and entertaining your tribe through exciting seminars and special events. Your passion may be connecting with clients in the selling situation because you know you are changing their lives in unprecedented ways through the exceptional products that you sell.
To GET RICH QUICK, quit thinking that RICH means just money, and get a brand new mindset. You must be RICH well before you will ever see the first shiny dime of your small business fortune. Then, you will be well-prepared to receive the money, the actual CASH, that is certainly yours for the taking!
Have a wealth mentality. In every instance of every day, live like you mean it. Do business like you love it. Create like you are excited about it. Meet people like you care. Connect like you have a purpose. Savor each moment like it matters. Enjoy every event (big or small, simple or elaborate) as if you are attending the King’s ball. Then, see if you don’t discover just how rich you really are. THAT kind of RICH does happen QUICKLY! It’s simply a mindset.
AT THAT POINT you can begin to make the leap to GAIN FINANCIAL WEALTH, and this money-kind of getting RICH starts with your decision to drop a very dangerously deceptive mentality—the one that says you can be successful without working a plan or without putting a reasonable amount of time and consistent effort into your business.
More on that next week, when I’ll share with you the HOW so you can get the CASH in your business (because that’s loads of fun too)! Stay tuned, and in the meantime…
Please share something about your own life that makes you KNOW you are rich today!
Have a Wild Week of Riches!
