You are the creator of your life
In order to become financially literate and to consciously think the way the wealthy do, is to become fully aware of how the wealthy operate. The main factor that segregates the wealthy from the lower and middle class is derived from their mentality, touching all facets of their lives. Remember, you have the capability to shift your focus in ways that will facilitate your overall happiness and prosperity, instead of ways that don’t.
Rich people believe “I create my life,” while poor people believe “life happens to me.”
The poor and middle class blame the economy, the government, the stock market, their broker, the type of business they are in, their employees, their employers, their partners, their friends, and their parents. They also adapt the vicious cycle of complaining. There is a universal law in life that is expressed as “what you focus on expands.” Realize that if you’re consistently fixated on all the unfavourable things that come at you, you will become a magnet for more obstacles. You are operating life in victim mode and putting your problems in the hands of everyone but yourself. Beware of negative energy, it is extremely infectious.
It is imperative to recognize that YOU are the common denominator of your existence. Consciously or subconsciously, you and only you, have the ability to believe that you are the one who establishes your success, that you are the one who creates your mediocracy and that you are the one forging your struggles – both personally and financially. There is no question that we all face adversity in our lives. However, what divides the wealthy from the poor and middle class is their actions after the fact. Do not inherit or be accustomed to a victim mentality and blame, justify or complain about how your life isn’t unfolding the way you want it too. Instead, take your power back and acknowledge that you are the creator of everything that is in your life and everything that isn’t.
