The first step to building your financial freedom

Why do the rich get richer and the poor get poorer?

Sure, the rich can pay for the support they need to reach their goals. They can pay accountants, lawyers, nutritionists, chefs, and more…

But you know the real reason why the rich get richer?

It’s their mindset.

If you grow up in a wealthy household, you learn things about money that the poor don’t learn. Your mindset towards money is completely different.

If you saw your parents become successful, you grew up seeing that success is possible.

I didn’t have that. That’s why I sought out mentors… I still seek them out. If they’re no longer alive I seek out their biographies and their work.

What I’m doing is bombarding my brain with examples of success, so I can expand my vision.

You need to cultivate your mindset so that you first believe that success is even possible for you.

There’s a fantastic book on how to change your mindset, called The Magic of Thinking Big. It’s even part of my 150 most recommended books.

Look, if you grew up as I did, looking at success like something that’s far away and not meant for you… burn this phrase into your head:

«If it is to be, it is up to me»

You’re the one that’s going to become the example. You’re going to show people that success is possible.

Expect resistance. Expect people to tell you that you’re crazy. Those are good signs… it means you’re doing something different.

The first thing you have to do is change your mindset. If you change your mindset, you can change your bank account.

The Magic of Thinking Big is a great start.

Commit to yourself. Let me know what’s the first step you’re going to take to build your dream life.
